Floppy Hat: Goodwill
Necklace: c/o Romwe
Lately the weather has been perfect. Flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and pictures have been more fun than ever. Julie has had this dress floating around the Delightful Dozen for a while, and I'm so happy to finally have it in my possession. I can't think of anything better for the 70s trend.
After working on all those David Hamilton scans the other day, I was inspired to string some flowers into my floppy hat, too. With the platforms, the maxi dress, the print, and the floppy hat, I'd say this is just about as 70s as I get. Funny thing is, it actually kind of reminds me of the early 1900s, as well.
I know, I know. You guys are probably thinking, 'of course it does you Edwardian-obsessed maniac', but hear me out! I'm watching a British mini series called Downton Abbey on Netflix (streaming!) right now, and I swear, the material, the cut, and the way my hand wants to hold it every time I walk seems just like something that Cora or Lady Mary would wear/do, too. The show was referred to me by one of my awesome blog readers, and I'm am so so so so grateful to her for telling me about it. We're taking a break from Deadwood at the moment so that Jake can get some movies in the mail too, and Downton Abbey is holding me over while I wait my turn. I feel like part of my heart is resting in Deadwood, South Dakota circa 1870 while the other half is lingering in England circa 1912. It's silly how attached I get to these shows. I really need to take screen shots. . .
