What I Wore | I'm In The Wrong Generation

A few weeks back, actually... my birthday weekend, I picked up two vintage dresses. One is from the 40's and it is the most beautiful thing I've seen in a long long time. The other one is a hippie dress.

*wiiiiicka - rewind* What? Hippie Dress?! HIPPIE?!

That was my reaction when I first saw this dress. Then I looked at the price tag and my heart sank. It was too much for me to justify. But, providence prevailed and Andrew and I ventured back a few weeks later only to find it 50% off. I knew this dress was supposed to be mine. It has the original built in bra for Pete's sake. No really, it does. I've had a field day with this dress and I swear it takes me back to a different time. I feel like I need to dress up my Bronco with daisies and peace signs when I wear this dress. I think it's my favorite thing in my wardrobe right now. Possibly forever. Just saying.

I could hug trees all day long. For serious. What are your favorite vintage scores lately? I'd love to see 'em!

dear lord--it's PERFECT!!!!!!! Oh my goodness. If I were you I'd wear it every day. Like my Red Velvet dress. Let's wear them every day together and be hippie mamas together. So so so so pretty!

If you're going to San Francisco, with flowers in your hair... Or what are the lyrics of that song again? Ha, you look pretty awesome. Like some kind of psychedelic hippie. :) I like those boots sooo much!

Have a happy weekend, pretty. xo.
