Victorian Sailor Girl

I really don't have much time for posting today with school resuming after an incredible spring break and work shortly after that (finishing my two weeks notice), so instead of going out to capture today's look I'm just posting some photos I took about a week or so ago. I like the outfit a lot but wasn't too impressed with any of the photos so I never posted them, but I suppose these are better than nothing at all!








Isn't the anchor tote the greatest! (thanks Maria)

Vintage Dress: Wolfe St. Thrift $1
Tights: Walmart $2.50
Oxfords: Goodwill $6
Tote: Lulu Letty Etsy $8

You're welcome, Starr! This outfit is, of course, darling, and I am so jealous of those oxfords...I've been looking for the perfect pair for ages and those are amazing, and for 6 bucks? Dang! I miss my hometown Goodwill!

Also, have you heard of the band Beach House? Well, they have a new album that I've not been able to stop listening to, but, more relevant is that at certain angles, you and the lead singer, Victoria Legrand, could maybe be sisters?
