Crocheted Dreams



Crochet top, Skirt, and Belt -vintage, Shoes - Kate Spade, Sunglasses - 80's Purple

Pairing this vintage crocheted top with this skirt was an absolute last second thought before rushing out the door for a weekend lunch date. I was surprised at how well it's intricate crocheted pattern went with the repeating diamond print on this skirt. I love it when it all comes together effortlessly like this. It makes life so much more easier. I've already bean busting out my spring season essentials since the weather has been so amazing recently. Adios winter. It's as if you were never here in the first place. Personally, I don't really mind. My brain is already in summer mode. Come to think of it, I need a lot more shorts. And my legs are in dire need of a tan. I will update my to-buy list once my shopping diet is over. Another 2 weeks to go. But I have a feeling that I will be breaking this little cleanse soon. But I'm trying to stick it out the best that I can!

In other news, the photo shoot that my sister and I did with the amazingly talented photographer Carmen Chan on Friday was so great. It was shot in our home, so when it comes out you will finally see a little bit of my personal space and closet (as well as my quite messy working area).
I cannot wait to see the final result! Hopefully within a month it will make its big debut :)

I like the title. I see you had fun with the fonts to. I always go to dafonts and get ones like these. I think I did download your header font at one point, but then decided to try something else. Anywho I like the crocheted top it's got a 50's 60's feel to it.

Josephina said...

gorgeous top xx

Tonya said...

This is gorgeous! I love the polka dots and crochet together, great 60s vibe.

everything about this outfit pretty much blows my mind- ESPECIALLY those shoes!
