My mama was snapping some shots of this outfit at the strip mall after we had a lunch date (hoity-toity ladies-who-lunch, that's what we are), and a gentleman walking into a shop called out, "Looks like a Mary Tyler Moore thing!" I shouted back, "I do my best!" while thinking to myself, YES, now I don't need to think of a title for my blog post! That's always the hardest part for me. Don't know why.

This outfit is a pleasure to wear. And it made a couple of little old ladies very happy to see it, too! :) That's my favorite. I'm hoping it reminded them of their past...
I've noticed that, while some fashionistas would take this dress and try to update it and make it modern, I'm not like that. I'm aware of fashion and trends and stuff, but there're several reasons I call this blog a personal style blog and not a fashion blog. One of these reasons is that when I wear vintage, I try to keep the rest of my outfit as authentic-looking as possible. I don't mix time periods. And I don't feel costume-y when I wear this stuff; in fact--I'm proud to say--I feel most comfortable wearing vintage and retro styles. It makes me feel pretty and happy. So why throw on a leather biker jacket and ruin that [just to be hip]? But, that's just me. :) If you're one of those fab fashionistas who likes to twist things to modern, go for it! I admire those sensibilities, 'cuz I don't have them. (Never fear: there IS a biker jacket in my wardrobe; you'll see it some other day.)
