Hey there! I hope you all are having a good week thus far! I have an outfit to share with you all that my Dad says reminds him of Candy Stripers, the volunteer girls who used to work at hospitals and wore striped dresses similar to mine.
I can’t wait for Spring to finally come! All this cold, dreary weather is certainly getting my spirits down these days. I long for the time when I can walk about on the earth in bare feet and not have to worry about being too cold! The days where the sun shining on your back provides just enough warmth as the breeze plays through the blossoms on the trees, chilling you, but somehow providing a delicious sense of new growth and life, as the wind is no longer the biting, frozen one of winter, but its sweeter cousin, who brings with her the blossoms, white puffy clouds, and sun filled days that march ever closer to the days of summer. The days where you can wear short sleeves and not need a sweater, where you can sit on the front porch in the sunshine to do your school or sewing work. Ah! I simply cannot wait for Spring!
For the makeup with this outfit I just wore my “Belles on Their Toes” look which I described in this post. I definitely think this is my new everyday makeup look. I love it so much!
We girls bought a lot of four of dresses that Solanah of Vixen Vintage was selling on Instagram, and this dress was one of them. The listing said the dresses were in need of a bit of TLC, and I expected all of the dresses to be a bit on the larger side for us girls, but quite miraculously this dress fit perfectly! I just had to give it a bit of repairs and it was quite wearable.
Have you ever heard of Candy Stripers?
