"Like a bird in a tree, I got my liberty, and I'm free from the chain gang now."
That is, school's out.
I couldn't be happier that the long winter is finally over, and that I'm back home in the wild green countryside. Been spending long hours out in the sun, listening to the chorus of songbirds and spring peepers, and dressing with Carmen Miranda & bright flowers in mind.
This 1950s squaw dress was one of my first vintage dresses; I got it in Santa Fe when I was 15, at a dreamy place called Double Take at the Ranch. It was just miraculous to me, to think such a beautiful dress existed. Soon, of course, I found out there were more like it, and thus began a bad habit of hoarding old frocks.....
Well, I hope you're doing swell, and that the weather is fine ♥
