Outfit Post: The Civil Wars

Last nite we got to go see The Civil Wars. It was incredibly delightful. They have awesome stage chemistry and Joy is the cutest thing i've ever seen. She fluidly dances to each song and evokes its meaning with her movements. John Paul looks exactly like johnny depp, which doesn't hurt anything. Their harmonies make me feel like i'm soaring above the ground. i laughed, i cried, i sweated gallons because there were 400 people packed into a tiny bar. Before the show, i got to stop in to some of my favorite vintage places in Lawrence and bought 40 new dresses for the shop! :)

i wore this. and steve documented it with his phone :) 

1950's fur collar cardigan: thrifted
silk blouse: thrifted
skirt: my mum's in the 1970's
purse: thrifted
tights: target
belt: thrifted
boots: deargolden

the pattern of this skirt is one of my favorites of all time. and the colors too.
