Sunday Girl

Aw man, I am behind in blogging... this outfit is nearly two weeks old! And it is still tights weather here in Buffalo... grrr. Anway, I wore this on Mother’s Day. In honor of my mom, I carried this amazing vintage house purse that was hers in the 60s. Each side is hand-painted with amazing detail – vines, flowers, birds in a birdcage, bricks, and a little sign with her name on it. I spent a lot of time admiring it as a child, and when she gave it to me a few years ago I was beyond thrilled. It’s delicate, so I only bust it out occasionally.

Also, I am very much in love with this new skirt! The knit detail along the bottom makes me really happy, and it’s surprisingly versatile. Actually, come to think of it, I'm wearing it now! Whoa.

Enter through the roof!

Someday I will have to show you the rest of my little 60s box purse collection, but the house purse is definitely my favorite of them all. <3

Later in the day, we had places to be, and when we were getting ready to leave I asked Dave if he was "ready to rock." Coooooool poses ensued:


I bet you have never seen anything so cool. If you have some cool poses that you think would top these, please share - I would love to see. Let's have a COOL-OFF, everybody!!!
