I Brake For Yellow Dresses!


Every year around spring/summertime, I find myself drawn to ridonculously bright, cheery yellow dresses. I'm not even sure it's my color, since I have such pale skin, but I'm also a brunette, so maybe it's okay after all? One of my style icons is Shelley Duvall's character Millie in Three Women, always looking fresh and pretty in her yellow frocks. I should really buy that movie so I can grab some screencaps to share with you; I can't really find any online and it's such a pretty film. Why aren't there more people blogging Millie's style?

Gettin' ladylike with gloves!

Oh, gloves. Please won't you come back into fashion? I have a small collection of my grandmother's old gloves; I'm sure you'll be seeing them here from time to time as I do wear them!

Heck yes, it's a yellow dress!

  8. you look so so so so cuuuuute! i love it and next to the bright blue artwork, brilliant!

  9. You are looking so lovely and I love that dress. It makes me want to go thrift shopping again for some vintage clothes. This reminds me I have a yellow dress that I got months ago and as much as I want to keep it, it just didn't fit right to me. It's long on my petite frame and I don't want to alter it since it is such in wonderful condition and it is Nicole Miller's dress, so it is looking for a new home. I want to look for another yellow dress that fits just right and no need for alteration. Love, love, love it!
