Off the Wall--an outfit

Do you recognize this dress? i finally took it down from the wall of my studio and wore it!! (you can see it in the picture above). its a 1940's peach crepe dress with a most amazing details. i tried to iron it but was so nervous about hurting it that i didn't do a very good job (sorry about that).
I've been trying to finger curl my hair lately, but i accidentally did it before i got in my dress and when i slipped it on, they all came out. ahhh..maybe next time. Steve and i are having a tiny disagreement over whether or not i should grow out my hair. what do you think?
even though its a tiny bit too big, this is one i can never sell. its my perfect dress; i love the gathered shoulders and side panel.

Outfit details:
1940's peach crepe dress: found in an abandoned warehouse
lavender tights: anthropologie
1940's shoes: local antique store.
1950's fur collar cardigan: thrifted
little beaded purse: a gift

thank you for reading,


  1. stunning! i love the peach and it looks great on you.

  2. This is such a pretty color on you! You looks so beautiful, you have such a warm smile, my dear.


  3. I love these photos! they are so beautiful of you and the dress is amazing.

  4. the dress is like sweet peach sorbet, of course you love it! and i vote for short hair, which of the two of you agrees with me?

  5. Oh goodness, that dress is just lovely; you wear the peach color so well! And just to add my two cents, I think you look amazing with short hair. (I'd cut off my hair without hesitation if I thought for one moment that I could pull it off like you can!)

  6. That dress is certainly stunning; I love the color! I also think you can pull off long and short hair equally well, so I'm afraid I can't cast a very helpful vote in that department!

    Oh, and that's a beautiful couch, too!

  7. that dress is gorgeous! I love your short hair!

  8. What an amazing dress, it suits you so well just like your hair style (but a change is always fun although growing out short hair isn't ^U^).
