rooftop blues


another lovely sunday to spend on the roof. just when i thought i was getting ready for the changing of the seasons, there’s a heat wave in northern california. it’s actually quite nice since i’ve been filling my head with inspiration from the new spring/summer 2010 collections that have been coming out. today i finally got to wear this lovely blue floral dress that i got from pearl snap vintage on etsy. she has such a lovely shop and most of her items are just my size! that’s one thing that i find really cool about buying vintage on etsy. do you ever find yourself going back to the shops who have models about your size? it takes some of the work out of it!

anyway, i am in love with this dress right now. it’s white and blue, just like fine china and i didn’t have to alter it one bit because it’s a junior’s dress! seriously, vintage junior’s dresses are the best because they already come in that perfect mini length and they often have the cute, girly details that i love, like peter pan collars. speaking of peter pan collars, i’m pretty sure i sported one almost every day of this week!

speaking of juniors, i just watched the made-for-tv movie, death of a cheerleader starring tori spelling and kellie martin. fun fact: the actor who plays the principal is also the same guy who plays john locke in lost! and now i just have a really strong urge to sit down with one of the best teen movies of all time: heathers! also starring one of the members of the cast of 90210. oh nostalgia!

oh i need a life!

wearing:
blue floral vintage junior’s dress, pearl snap vintage on etsy
vintage wood wedge sandals, thrifted
skinny bow belt, nordstrom
woven straw bag with wood handle, thrifted

    i wish we had rooftops to go on here in arkansas, they just don't seem to make them assessable here!

    very cute juniors dress! i'm with you on the models your size thing…it seems like everyone is an XS, so when I find a medium-sized lady I tend to become a regular!

    also…. love the heathers! wasn't it shannon doherty and winona ryder with christian slater as the male lead? lol. such a great black comedy!!

    That dress is gorgeous! I haven't really gotten into buying vintage online because I'm always afraid it won't fit, but I think I must become a little braver! :)
