dressed up like a lady: Just act naturally.

Apr 15, 2009

Just act naturally.

If you happen to find yourself cruising by the website of awesome vintage shop Chi Chi and the Greek, the crazy eyed girl on the front page might look familiar. That's because it's me! The photo was taken by the amazing Christian O'Grady during the same shoot I used to make my banner. For this one picture, the store's sweet and hilarious proprietor Kelly basically directed me to act like a manic flapper. I hope I did an okay job.

 
So in honor of my newfound fame: a flapper inspired outfit!


Top: UO
Skirt: UO
Shoes: Target
Purse: Vintage via the Getup 

Sadly, I have no speakeasy to visit, so the best I can do is shake my tailfeather among the baking supplies at Zingerman's Bakehouse.

I don't know how jazzy it is, but I have a real soft spot for this cute little crocheted bag, mostly because its amber colored handle gives the impression of Bakelite. Even the illusion of early plastics is enough to make me feel straight out of Great Gatsby.

  28. Ah! I went to Ann Arbor this weekend and totally didn't know and/or forgot that the Getup is there. I was just bee-bopping along, and then I saw the sign. I thought you lived somewhere in MI...so I dragged BF across the street saying "well, I read this blog, and she talks about it, and blah blah blah" - he thought I was nuts. I did find the coolest vintage nightgown, though!
