dressed up like a lady: The sun descending.

Oct 15, 2009

The sun descending.

The summer is gone, the Indian summer is past, and it's gotten magnificently cold outside. These pictures -- taken a few weeks ago, when the midday sun still begged for bare shoulders -- now seem like artifacts of another age.

50's style halter circle-dress (in "atomic print"!): Lilli Jean
Shoes: Steve Madden
Bowler hat: Sam's
Bag: Thrifted



So here's a great big welcome to autumn. Inconvenient and sometimes uncomfortable, I still love you, my dear. I greet your penetrating mix of chilling moisture and fierce winds with open arms. And a big-ass army surplus coat.

  12. Love the dress with the hat! I can't find my hat like that and my feelings are hurt bad! It really seems like summer made the transition to fall in a heartbeat. Oh well, time to pull out the big coats.

    P.S. Love the blue shoes!
