New All Over the Place

This is a dress that is new to the 'ol blog and I'm posing in a new alley. I'm just all about new today.

I bought this dress last fall at the big state fair Vintage Sale. I have worn it once or twice since then but haven't taken any official pictures as of yet.  This dress is so cute but really only works in the transition between seasons.  Since it is long sleeved, it is too hot to wear in the summer.  However, the material is a really lightweight cotton that is too thin to wear in the winter. I love it anyway. This particular day, it was nice and cool in the morning and warmed up in the afternoon. I was a bit warm while taking these pictures but I sucked it up for the sake of the blog. :)  This alley has much more traffic along the front than my usual one but I just love the brick on this building so I braved it!

  1. Very cute! I could see how the sleeves could make for a challenge, but it is a great transitional piece. That is also a very cool backdrop!

  2. I love it!!! You look great in that alley :) xoxo linds

  3. Thanks! I think I'm going to have to brave it more often :)

  4. Thanks Beth! I'm going to see if I can wear it this fall, maybe with a cardigan and tights before it gets too cold.
