What I Wore on Sunday, August 14, 2016

by mary September 11, 2016

On Sunday, August 14, I wore this really fun dress that I got recently (on sale) at Zumi's, here in Des Moines. 

I love the colors & uneven hemline on this dress, plus it's super comfortable!  Poor Belle was still wearing her cone at that point; the next day we "liberated" her!

The fun purse is from the 1960s that I got at Dorothea's Closet Vintage a couple of years ago.

With my fun dress, I wore 2 pieces of jewelry I made.  The first is a necklace I made from an old hotel key fob that I picked up at a vintage clothing store in Boise, Idaho last summer.

I also wore a fun pair of earrings I made out of old catalin game pieces that I picked up at a garage sale last summer.

Catalin is one of the early plastics, developed in 1928 & popular in the 1930s.  I love the color of these vintage catalin pieces.

What I Wore on Thursday, August 11, 2016

by mary September 4, 2016

On Thursday, August 11, I wore this amazing 1940's dress that I got at Dorothea's Closet Vintage several years ago.  I'm not sure if it's rayon or jersey or a combination, but it's wonderfully comfortable!

The dress is missing its original belt, so I used a black silk belt that matched the color of the buttons.  The other thing I love about this dress is that it's longer in the back than in the front, although you can't really tell that in this picture.

I don't remember where I got the hat, but I love how it goes with the dress.  The purse was one of my mother's.

With my fabulous dress, I wore 2 pieces of jewelry I've made.

The first is a necklace I made out of a vintage Avon pendant.

I added a vintage picture on the back; I believe the photo is from WW2.

I also wore a pair of earrings I made from some new-old-stock (NOS) beads I found at a bead shop in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.

I just love NOS beads!
