My husband and I escaped for a few days this weekend. Finally things had slowed down a bit, and we both really needed a break. We got a really good deal on a hotel, so we were off!
For once, every single thing I wore was vintage. I didn’t make a one thing I wore! The dress has the most incredible snaps down the front. They immediately reminded me of wagon wheels, so I had to wear my wagon wheel brooch!
I love 1930’s through 1940’s desert style fashion, so I brought this outfit with me to try to emulate the feel of one of my favorite fashion shorts- Fashion Horizons, from 1940. 1940 was a good year for fashion in America.
Hope you had a wonderful holiday, and Happy New Year if I don’t check in before then!

Great photos — great look — those pictures ought to confuse future fashion historians! I especially like the black and white ones.
