minimal bling

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend...a long weekend for those of us in the US.  Andy and I started it out with pinball, cocktails, and dinner out on Friday.  I wore this cute, new-to-me thrifted 1950s dress. 

I love this old doorway I posed in front of. 



The only flaw on this dress?  One of the little rhinestones is missing.  I love how in the 1950s just a few rhinestones were bling enough.


No bling for Andy--just the cool novelty print on this shirt.  (He has a pretty great revolving collection of men's 1940s and 1950s shirts.  I say "revolving" because he keeps selling them.  But then he finds more.)


At first glance, I always think this print has an Irish theme.  It's the green, and those little floral bits that look a little like clover.



But if you look closely, you can see they're rickshaws.  And the shirt is silk, too--I guess that's kind of blingy.

  2. I love that little rickshaw pattern. I could see myself wearing that shirt with jeans and a white tee underneath. Hmm, will he be selling that one? LOL

    1. It's easier here than it is where you are--but still, not a common occurrence!

  5. Sounds like a lovely weekend! Your dress is so pretty and I love a little rhinestone bling too. I also love that Andy is doing a "what I wore post" too! Such a great shirt and I'm sure he has some even more amazing ones in his collection.

  6. The little rhinestoned bows on your dress are too too cute, even if one of the rhinestones is missing. What a great print, too. Sounds like you had a fun weekend!
