(That Elvis album to the left is a 1956 original of his second album ever!! Found it for a buck at the thrift store; I'm such a geek, but it was a thrilling day.)
Just a little outfit post today; I ordered my new camera today and I'm going to get a tripod too. No more awkwardly asking friends to be my photographer or lugging around boxes and chairs to use as stands, hooray!
My dress is from the 1950s; it was originally to my ankles so I hemmed it, but it's way too short now. Oh well, I wear it anyway. My "belt" is actually my dad's plaid bandana (shh, he doesn't know I took it to college), my boots are the beat up Ariats I wear when I'm actually riding horses, and I forget the socks' story but I love them. The suede vest was hecho en Mexico and is actually from my childhood dress-up box.
I was a kind of cowgirl-flower child hybrid in middle school and my first two years of high school, and I was definitely harkening back to those days today. I'm definitely going in a late 60s/70s direction for Fall. All summer I was doing red lips and stockings and neat little chignons, and now nothing looks better to me than wearing my hair in long curls with gauzy dream-like antique dresses and cowboy boots.
Of course, no one does the gypsy cowgirl look better than Miss Emmylou Harris! I have my Blue Kentucky Girl vinyl album propped on my dresser right now for inspiration when I'm getting dressed.
