What I Wore on Thursday, July 14, 2016

by mary July 14, 2016

I see that I haven't posted anything for almost a month.  It's been an off summer for us, as our little beagle, Belle, has been down at the Veterinary Health Services at the University of Missouri-Columbia getting radiation treatment for a tumor on her left front paw.  She's been there since June 20, & will be there a few more days to finish her treatment.  In the interim, we've been visiting her weekends when we can & missing her terribly.  We also talk to the Health Center & to the student she is staying with to hear how she is doing.  That's pretty much dominated our attention.

Today, though, I volunteered at Calvin Community's birthday party for residents with birthdays in July, & wore one of my summer vintage outfits, so I thought I would do a "What I Wore On . . . " blog post.  So here goes . . .

On Thursday, July 14, I wore this really fun 1960s black & white gingham drop-waist dress that I found at an antique mall in Boise, Idaho last summer.

I also got the 60s daisy pin at the same antique mall, but different booth.  I love this dress, & remember wearing drop-waist dresses like these back in the 60s!  My hat & purse are also from the 60s & come from Dorothea's Closet Vintage.

With my outfit, I wore 2 pieces of jewelry I've made.  I made the charm bracelet out of small vintage white dice, & added a Cracker Jack/gumball good luck charm & black beads to match the dots in the dice.

I made this asymmetrical pair of earrings with the same size white dice & black bead for one earring, & a black dice & white bead for the other.

I really like vintage dice, & thought the colors & shapes were a good complement for my 60s dress.
