Here I go, hurrying to catch up my backlog of outfit photos to the actual weather with more layers! I've had this beautifully-made vintage vest-dress since last spring and I'm still figuring out just the right things to wear with it.

I think I'd need a mini skirt and little square-heeled loafers for a more historically accurate look. Or, you know, wear it buttoned all the way and never sit down or bend over. And even though I started with the outfit rather than the movie, I'm calling this outfit good enough to link up with Sacramento's Share-in-Style at Mis Papelicos because it reminds me of the ensembles in On A Clear Day You Can See Forever:
With that inspiration, and given how challenging it is to hold a loooong handbag level for outfit photos, I'm sure I can fit more hypnosis, tantrums, musical numbers, and past lives into my day. The Share-in-Style theme is Movies, and I bow deeply to the awesomeness already there - you must go see the Travelling Yellow Skirt have a Snow White adventure and remember Some Kind of Wonderful! And! And! And! The incomparable Desiree does Little Edie!!!
I will also see y'all over at Spy Girl for 52 Pick-me-up, where we're doing the Blue Hues. No fudging there, unless you count having some delicious chocolate brown in the mix. Mmm! Wishing everyone full bellies, and only the excellent kind of blues.
