This amazing 1950s nautical peter pan collar dress is from my own private collection. It is truely amazing in my eyes, but I find that it's becoming slightly snug on me (the body isn't what it used to be..) and even when it did fit very well, I didn't wear it often, maybe because i'm not so much of a wiggle dress girl. I like my dresses slightly puffed at the skirt. However I do have quite a few dresses I keep just because. Maybe this should stay eye candy. hmmm.

So I've been trying to intice winter for the past week by wearing warmer clothes in hopes the powers that be will get the message. Yes sometimes I was unnecessarily hot but it's all for a good cause. So in my efforts to invoke some kind of cooler weather - I give to you my perfect autumn-ish outfit (well maybe not PERFECT) but I like it:
And, I'd like some faded mustard leggings with that please.

I have'nt mentioned this here I think, but I have a small collection of vintage brooches I adore. Generally speaking I love brooches period. Really, this should be a post titled "My Vintage Obsession: Brooches", but I just wanted to share the newest addition to my little brooch family:
Isn't it lovely? As far as I know, it should be from the 60's(ish), might be even older than that. It's pretty simple and not made from any special material but it's just so pretty and I love it's rusty look and faded aqua color. Welcome little one, we shall treat you well as we are a loving family.

Lauren from Dear Golden recently posted a blog post about a vintage button shop she and the lovely Duff of Jean Jean Vintage visited and she wrote about how the lady who sold there had this amazing collection of unique buttons from a lot of eras back. I don't really work like that and I can't even tell you why -
I'm not picky about the era from which my buttons are from, I don't really look for any special materials the buttons are made from and I don't mind button wear. Sometimes I get really cool and special to-die-for buttons and sometimes they are really plain and everyday like. I'm like an orphanage for buttons!! They are all welcome. I just keep collecting them - they are all special to me :)
