Random Pretty Pretty Things

Oh how I wanted my last post before vacation to be an in depth analysis of a beautiful design movement, but alas I ran out of time. However, I will leave you with some Florida images and handmade garments that make me happy. The first four photos are of St. Augustine, via flickr. I'm so excited to be hanging out in this old city tomorrow.




Photograph taken by Toni Frisell at Weeki Wachi Spring in 1947 (via Glamoursplash.) The natural springs of Florida are something you simply must see at some time in your life.
And because I'm feeling girlie and not too happy with my wardrobe right now, a couple of my Etsy favorites. Don't you just love this handbag from oktak? I really, really want it. I'll bet you do to.

I could be so mysterious and sophisticated in this hat by sanchia845.
And I'll leave you with this incredible White Dahlia gown from joanshum. Have a lovely week everyone!

Gorgeous! Wouldn't it be great to wear that white dress to work or something? I'd definately get some stares.
But the hat, I'm sure I could pull off. If I was an undercover agent.
