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!
