Hooray for bloggy friends!
The lovely Patti over at Not Dead Yet Style gifted me this amazing 1920s vintage dress.
How fab is it that Patti volunteers at a thrift shop? I’d be tempted to bring home a bag of goodies daily.
I’m so happy Patti chose to gift me this dress and not keep it for herself.
That is the sign of a true friend…when they are willing to give up a choice piece of vintage for you.
Hand embroidered, wonderfully cool and relaxed this is my go-to dress now that summer has re-emerged after a brief week of fall in southern Ontario.
I’m sitting in my office sweating away today wondering if I should put the air conditioning back on.
I’m not complaining though! Winter will be here all too quickly and I’m squeezing out every ounce of summer I can.
The fabric this dress is made out of is very strange, a cross between linen and cotton with a bit of rayon thrown in there.
It has a bit of a green tint in certain light.
This 1920s vintage dress is fragile and required a bit of TLC prior to wearing.
I don’t mind mending a few small holes. I feel like I’m infusing the dress with love.
What should you do when you’re very hot?
Cuddle a pug.
They are little furnaces that shed their own body weight daily.
That’s okay. We all have our problems. She accepts me the way I am…I feel obligated to do the same, aside from that one poop incident in the dining room this week. We won’t talk about that. It is so out of character for her I almost wondered if she’d let a buddy in the back door to do the nasty and then leave. When I found the alarming evidence and called her in she refused to even enter the dining room. I think she was having some poop guilt. This was after I took her for our 5 km daily walk. Can someone say, “Passive agressive?”
I’m holding Zoë’s paws off the delicate embroidery and I’m praying that when I get up I’m not wearing half of her furry pants.
Just one last shot so you can see how cool these shoes are. A wedge heel is one of the kindest for my aging feet.
What was the last gift you were given that you really loved?
Linking up with Patti over at Visible Monday.
