'Two Dames Toggled To The Bricks' Week 2

For this round of 'Two Dames Togged To The Bricks' I sent Veronika that pretty blue ruffle dress you guys made me return to Blue Suede Shoes to get a few months ago. Looking back at that post I find it funny that this is the dress I left behind. I wear it way more than any of the other dresses I got that day (mostly because they need to be hemmed). I'm a sucker for a good dress, but I kind of loose interest in them after a while when I've already styled them with a ton of different shoes and accessories. For that reason, I styled this one with a skirt. It's the exact opposite of what I did with the last 'Two Dames' post, a skirt over a dress instead of a blouse over a dress, but I love the additional styling options that come with both. Of course I adore the way Veronika wore it too. It sort of has a Dorothy feel with that straw purse, and of course I'm drooling over her Heidi braids too.

I love the way my new/old floral umbrella looked with this dress when I styled it too. I can't remember exactly where I got it, but I'm pretty certain it was from an estate sale. The first photo of me flying upward was inspired by a photo my friend Cody took of me a little over a year ago. His photo was much better than mine, but I still love the idea. I threw it in at the end of the set just so you could see what I was talking about.







Vintage Dress: $14
Skirt: Saver's $7
Espadrilles: Salvation Army $6
Hat: A gift from Anna

This was before I knew how to work a camera. I tagged along with Cody and his camera a lot!


Now go check out Veronkia's look!

Also, I selected the winner of the Moonshine Hill giveaway! Congratulations to Melissa from Oh, My Darling, you've got a cute buggy shirt coming your way.

You are too lovely. The umbrella really adds something to this look. It weirdly makes me want one just for accessory purposes.
