Hat Bon Marche $15; necklace + earrings Buffalo Exchange $15; belt Target $15; dress from Moon Zoom $30 (1950s-1970s); Miz Mooz shoes $50 (they're old, the new ones I have my eye on are here.)
Since I was flying in and out in one day with the event in the middle I wore my navy and white polka-dot knit. This one doesn't wrinkle in flight. I added red accessories.
Lux De Ville Sin City Patent Vinyl Handbag, 1940s wool sweater (on back of chair) $20 (can't remember where I got it); vintage gloves inherited from my grandmother.
I like navy and white with red, although it is rather flag-like. I've worn this dress before with white accessorizes, on my last tour when I was in Austin.
I can't decide whether I like it with the red or the white better.
While down there I got to play with this amazing parasol.
Fluvog it looks like. Aren't they fun?

Another angle on the hat. I do love it so. That teacup pin a gift from a reader.
And now something for the characters . . .

Retro Rack is also on facebook where I post additional images and fashion thoughts.
I like the red. The ensemble doesn't look flag-like because there are small touches of the color, just enough to make it pop. Great dress! Looked like a fun signing :-)ReplyDelete
