Daily Outfit: 3/30/10

I think of this as my stewardess dress. Even though I haven’t seen a stewardess in anything similar since I was five. And even then, I might’ve just superimposed photos of vintage airline attendants onto my actual memories.


I’ve wanted to try wearing a scarf like this for ages, but it never quite worked. Until now! I think it looks fabulously funky draped over one shoulder like that.

Also: NO TIGHTS! After all my hesitation, it felt glorious to show the world my blindingly white gams today. Freeeeeedoooooooom!

Additionally, it was windy during today’s photo session. Windily annoying, I should say.

    The scarf and shoes go so beautifully with that dress. I love the button detail at the bottom!

    I agree, but neglected to say, that last photo is worth its weight in gold. Wait. Photos do not have a weight. OK, it's priceless:).

    I love how you're mixing red and green without being christmasy. The button detailing is so cute, it makes a basic red dress something special

    What a great dress. But it seems in the last picture that the scarf has a mind of its own.;-)

    I love the way you affixed the scarf — so elegant! And that red dress is fab; I like the little pockety flaps and the buttons.

    Your mom was right. You do look smashing in red! And I love the drama of the shoulder scarf. There's something 1970s Latin American about it, but I can't quite describe it.

    I think we have the same vintage stewardess image.
    It had been some time since I had seen a scarf worn like that, it reminds me my boss at my old job ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lovely outfit!

    I can't believe it can be warm enough over there to go without tights already – didn't you have snow on the ground until a couple of weeks ago?
