This incredibly dreamy zeppelin dress from 1930 is so amazing. I wouldn’t mind having this entire outfit—the hat and shoes are lovely too.

I am in love with this 1960s Guy Laroche dress that popped up on my Pinterest feed last week.

It’s such a cute mod number, and I think what makes this dress so fabulous is the tuxedo look and the 1920s influences:

Guess what? It’s finally March and I’m excited for spring and more daylight hours and wearing outfits that look like this!

In other news, my band The Secret Ceremony is heading out into the woods tomorrow for a photo shoot with this talented lady. Am I excited? Witch, please!

The heating system at the ol’ day job  has been a bit wonky this week, and I wish I had these vintage Schiaparelli sweaters to keep me warm and cozy instead of my scrubby black hoodie.

It’s still wool weather here in Portland, but I wish it was warm enough to wear my leather moto jacket.
