This past week, I had the great pleasure of being visited by my dear friend, Hannah.
I don't know if this is normal, but this gal is one of my very best friends, and yet we've literally never lived in the same place. We were basically fated to be friends. In 2010, she was a customer of mine at a vintage place I was working at in San Francisco. We traded info, and somehow here we are, 3 years later, being snarky vintage soul mates. Gf lives back on the East Coast these days, so it was a relief to see her after almost a year.
We did a lot of shopping, of course. On Saturday, we borrowed a car & went out to Snohomish for some antiquing. Luckily, the overwhelmingly adorable shop Coming Up Roses was open, and she got me in lots of beautiful trouble. I'm going to have to go back in a few paychecks, because WOW. I can't even believe her inventory exists. And all in one place?! I wanted to buy everything, but I can't.
But I got this 40s novelty print dress & feathery 40s hat (plus two other hats... like I said, trouble.)
It's hard to see, but it's cat & the fiddle print! In my two favorite colors, chartreuse & coral.
I bought these platforms while my foot was still broken. Talk about wishful thinking, they are almost 6" heels! Hahaha.
One novelty print down, one to go.
Meet Hannah, and her 40s pegasus dress.
Outtakes are always the best.
With our powers combined.... Unstoppable.
