vintage 60s knit/crochet dress with balloon sleeves and high neck: Hattie’s Vintage, Portland
saddle shoes: Payless, thrifted
floral socks: H&M last year
60s enamel daisies clip on earrings worn as broochs: from my mom (the clip on earrings fit perfectly through the lace crochet and don’t fall out!)
flower bouquet purse: Nicole Eymard

This is the dress I was obsessing over when I went to Portland in January.  I saw it at a vintage shop, didn’t buy it, and when I went back to buy it the store was closed and I was leaving the next day.  Luckily the shop owner was kind enough to take my credit card over the phone and ship it to me.  It seems every time I go to Portland there’s one item I don’t buy and end up obsessing over endlessly.  The last one was a knit 50s suit that I paid my sister to buy and send to me.  And much like that suit, this 60s yellow knit dress I’ve worn tons since I got it.  It’s the perfect spring dress to wear in this in between time where it’s a bit nippy but nice out.

Ben and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary this past weekend.  We went to the huge book sale at Fort Mason (where everything’s a dollar and benefits the SF friends of the library), had sushi and went to where we went to on our first date, my favorite place, Musee Mecanique.  We took a photobooth pic on our first date, so we’ve gotten one for each anniversary so far.  Hopefully we’ll have quite a stack of photobooth pics in the future!

    I love 60s knit dresses. They are sol flattering on the figure. You look great! I have similar one in red, but it doesn’t have the wonderful balloon sleeves that yours does. Congrats on your anniversary. The Musee Mecanique is the perfect date place.
