What I Wore... 60's Chic

Over the past week or so I have really been working on getting the vintage boutique "finished". Until Monday it was basically an empty bedroom with a rack of clothes hanging haphazardly in it. Last night that all changed when my husband and a couple of our friends came over and moved the vintage couch I scored a couple of months ago up there. Ladies need a place to sit while they shop right?

So today, I bring you an outfit post, a peek at the newly painted room, my wonderful vintage couch and a peek at the bathroom inspiration all in one!

I found this wonderful little dress at the thrifts a while back and given the style dated it to the late 50's early 60's. However, there was no maker label and the edges were not finished so the possibility that it was handmade in the 80's loomed.

That was until after a good washing I discovered the union made label...huzzah! That along with the fact there is no serging to be found verified my suspicions...triumph!!

Yes, I am barefoot....you'll deal. I hate walking upstairs in shoes and well it's my house I don't have to wear shoes to take an outfit post if I don't wanna so there's always that...

On to my wonderful couch! Doesn't it make all your little vintage lovin' hearts squeal with delight? Next to my newly painted gray walls I love it even more, and don't even get me started on those pillows...seriously! And...and the best part... it's a pull out... so underneath is a mattress all gussied up in vintage sheet wonderfulness!!!
