Fruit Salad

Over Easter weekend I found this gorgeous melon colored dress at my parent's house.  I'm guessing my mom wore it back in the late '70s.  The color and midi length were right on trend for spring, and it fit me perfectly.

It was a bit of a windy day so it probably wasn't the greatest time to wear it, but I was too excited about it to wait any longer.


And I'll leave you with my unavoidable Marilyn moment:

  2. I love your blog and style (and you look like a friend of mine). How awesome is it that you have a vintage dress of your mother's to wear? My mom tossed pretty much everything of hers that would be vintage now. Oh well. Following you now! ;-)
