I'm a huge fan of patio, or squaw, dresses, and have collected quite a few over the years. I can't resist the bright colors (tropical turquoises, eye-popping pinks, and garden fresh greens) and I'm a serious sucker for metallic rick rick--the more the better! Patio dresses tend to be made from cool, airy, and wilt free fabrics, which makes them perfect for hot weather, and I find myself reaching for them all summer long.
I found this coral and silver number with its original belt at a vintage shop in Jerome. It's been shortened at some point in its past life, and I'll probably let the hem down again, but it made a festive choice for a recent shoot with Matt Carson. These photos were taken around Jerome, one of our favorite shooting haunts.
Oh, these pictures are so pretty!! You look stunning :)ReplyDelete
I'm a fellow patio dress fan; in fact, my very first vintage dress was a '50s turquoise ric-racced ensemble not unlike this one. They're such sweet dresses; yours is just darling!
I love these dresses, too! But I don't have any of my own. This colour looks great on you. =]ReplyDelete
That is such a lovely dress, the colour is perfect on you xReplyDelete
I made a little preview of you posts and I must admit that you always have a wonderful outfit! Especially I like your photos on which you're wearing nylons. Amazing blog and brilliant photos:-)ReplyDelete
You look amazing!!! I seen a dress in a local vintage shop!! Its soo cute !! it reminds me of what you are wearing but it was kelly green! Your hair looks amazing!!!ReplyDelete
Oh, you look divine! I love patio dresses so much! My grandma gave me one of her square dance skirts + the petticoat when I was about 10, a turquoise and silver ric rac affair. I wore that thing until it fell apart. I need to find (or make) another like it!ReplyDelete
