Pretty in Pink

Being a ginger, I'm always cautious of the colours I can and cannot wear.  Certain shades of pink and red aren't always the most complimentary colour for my hair.  I used to shy away from pink entirely.  But as I grew older and more confident in myself and in my style, I find myself expirementing and becoming more brave.


 Outfit Details:
vintage 1960's dress, vintage shoes {thrifted}
vintage handbag {from my maternal grandmother}
vintage jewelry {from my paternal grandmother}

I fell in love with this dress when I first saw it at my local Goodwill.  Most of the time vintage dresses in my area are too big for me and I have to belt them to make them look good.  Not this dress.  It fit like a glove.  There's something about when a piece of clothing fits you so well that instantly boosts your confidence.  I felt like Ann-Margaret or the lovely Joan Holloway/Harris.

Want to see what photos didn't make it onto the blog?  Head over to my Facebook and take a peek.


  1. What a pretty dress! You look great in it!

    1. Thank you so much! I usually don't wear 1960s clothing that much, but I couldn't pass it up.

  2. Such a pretty dress! I think pinks and reds suit red-headed women so well!
    You're making me want to go to my local Goodwill and hunt for some goodies. I DO need some new belts, so maybe on my way home...

    1. I know, the urge to thrift is overwhelming sometimes. Especially now that it's getting cooler out, I want to go buy some more stuff. I love my local Salvation Army, because every Wednesday, nearly everything is 50% off.

      Love, Kristi
