giddy up.

after obsessing about these animal prints, i can't believe this dress is still sitting in my closet, unworn. i finally found my horse print dress at this cute little vintage/thrift shop in town. i was on my way out when i spotted the dress on the window mannequin. i ran back in and told the lady i wanted it. she was hesitant to go thru the trouble of getting it because she thought it was too big for me, but i told her just get the darn dress i'd make it work. i'll have to make time to take it in and shorten it so that i can actually wear it out, but for now it's pinned and tucked under this wide belt.

happy aloha friday!

  6. I am so in love with the vintage print. It's so beautifully quirky. Is it coral? Great find, Becks. I'd wear also wear it unbuttoned as a long cardi/jacket over pants or a simple dress.
