Housewife Inspired

Another workday outfit, another amazing find from Shareen's vintage. 

{Vintage dress via Shareen's, Franco Sarto wedges via DSW (old), Urban Outfittters watch, gifted pearls}
I am a total sucker for any piece with even a vaguely '50's silhouette (proof: here, here, here, and here). I just love the feeling of being a little 'done-up' that these kind of dresses easily provide. In this particular number, I totally feel like a retro domestic goddess (think more June Cleaver, less Real Housewives...though I am hopelessly addicted to that show). 

The best part of this dress? The pockets! 

Only a good '50's housewife would have fresh cut flowers at the ready. 

Happy Friday! What are your weekend plans? Mine involve some quality time with a good friend soon departing for a month in Paris (can you say jealous?), a beach day, and some R&R including a pedicure and a haircut. Confession: I LOVE getting my hair cut. It's kind of an obsession. Is that just me?


  1. I love the pockets on this dress! Did you purchase the dress as it is, or did you have to alter it? I also love getting my hair but, but I'm trying to grow out my pixie cut it might be another year before I get it cut again. :(

  2. ooooo I cant EVER pass up pockets.

    Found you thanks to what would a nerd wear...!!!

    loving all thus far!

  3. Love that second to last pic! And the pockets on that dress are to die for. I always think it's kind of funny how I love pockets in dresses but I never, ever use them, haha.

    Getting my hair cut is one of my favorite things. I purposely grow it out so I can get a big, drastic hair cut every year or two. So fun!

  4. FIGHT ON!! I'm a huge SC fan and now a fan of your blog!

  5. That dress is so sweet! I love how you make vintage look current and not precious (do you know what I mean??)

  6. I just realized that my comment doesn't make sense. That dress is amazing. That's all I can say.

  7. great dress!!! totally housewives but only in a classy, charming way!

    and umm i love getting my hair cut. mine needs it so badly right now!!

  8. Just found your blog via What Would a Nerd Wear. Love it!
