vintage silk

red silk 1

yes, i realize these photos are taken in a bathroom... and how incredibly tacky that is, haha. but i forgot to take an outfit picture until the sun had set and it was night already. and i thought i'd be all artsy fartsy and coordinate my red top with the red flower photos on the wall.

these silk tops were my mom's way back when, but mine now that she's stopped wearing them. the light material is perfect for these hot days and the shoulder pads add a nice new silhouette.

finally finally done with the big room reorg/overhaul... it's amazing the sorts of treasures (junk?) you find tucked away after years and years. exhibit A: old corsages I had saved from high school dances years back... guess I could never let go of how pretty they were
