This is the outfit I wore to the shops today after work. The hat is new (well, new to me; its 1950s vintage) and this was its first outing! Seems to be made for the dress, don't you think?

I may or may not be dancing in this photo :)
I didn't buy anything at the shops, but it was a nice outing; I was called 'darling' by two different shoppers, and one lovely old man stopped me to say that he thought i looked delightful, and that more 'young ladies' should dress as i did! I was super flattered!
It's sort of hard to see here (especially because I managed to take these pictures after my excursion and I'm a little windblown) but I wore my hair up with one roll on the side and the back rolled up with a rat and pinned in place. SO quick and easy to do!
A closeup of mum's brooch. It has a few little stains here and there but it's so sweet. So glad i rediscovered it!
These beauties are LEILAH's from Wittner, bought on super- sale a few months ago. So pretty!
See you again soon
