Lazy Hazy

Want to know the reason I look so damn smug in this picture? See end of post.
No, what you are seeing is not a mirage-- I'm actually standing in the warm SUNSHINE! We've finally started to warm up around these parts and while I know it won't last, it sure is nice while it's here. This is what I wore to Father's Day lunch on Sunday, where it actually got too hot for the jean jacket. Wonders never cease. I'm wearing one of my all-time favorite dresses, one of the many DVF's I managed to collect while working in retail. I've actually become quite a collector of her dresses, they just fit my figure so well, plus I love all the vibrant prints and colors.
Another little tidbit-- I brought a dress home from the antique faire a couple weks ago and found this real jade and diamond ring pinned into the side seam! It fits my pinky finger pefectly. Funny because two days before I was watching The Letter thinking to myself that I would love a diamond pinky ring like Bette Davis has in the movie. Needless to say from now on it's going to be my lucky ring. I'll try and get a better picture of it in another post.

  3. What?! That's such a cool story! Now I'm going to be disappointed every time I bring a vintage dress home and there isn't an antique ring pinned to the side seam! Also, that dress is so pretty and vibrant!

  5. What a lucky find, it's my dream to find something amazing tucked into a vintage purse or box at the thrift or at an estate sale.

    Sadly I have no DVF dresses, hopefully some day!

  8. That is a fabulous DVF dress...I really like those colors together. And your ring discovery was amazing! The ring is beautiful! You reminded me that I have a similar pinkie ring that belonged to my great aunt, but mine doesn't have diamonds, and I have no idea if the jade is real. But anyway, now I want to wear it!

  9. I love DVF dresses, but have never managed to nab one for myself - they look like they are easy to wear - well cut. Maybe one day! Your is lovely!

    Hope you're feeling better!
