A Trip to the 50's

This past Monday, I was finally able to do the 1950's photo shoot that I've been anxiously awaiting!!

This outfit was such a pleasure to style.

The dress...the AMAZING dress, I found at Crimson and Clover. It was seriously love at first site. I had the idea for this shoot for a while, and as soon as I saw the dress, I knew it was the one. When I tried it on and had that zipper zip up smooth as butter like it was made for me, I knew it was meant to be. :) That is honestly one of the best feelings in the world.

I also purchased my lovely, ruched gloves there, too.

That piece de resistance, my hat, was ever so graciously loaned to me by the wonderful owners of Article Consignment Boutique. Not only are Abe and Val pretty much the nicest, most adorable couple in the world, they have AWESOME items in there.

When I saw the hat, I knew it belonged with the dress. It seriously matches it perfectly.

Ah, there is just something about hats, isn't there? I'm kind of obsessed, if you didn't know. There will be a hat wholey devoted to sweet lids in the very near future :)

At first I was thinking of styling the shoot like 50's with a modern edge, but the classic 50's look was just too wonderful. I had to stick with it. I felt SO elegant in this outfit. Part of me wishes we still dressed like this on an every day basis...but the realist in me hates that idea haha.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the shoot. All of these were taken by my good friend, Marcus Meisler. This is his website if you want to check out more of his amazing work.

I hope you enjoy them :)
