Give Me The Soft, Soft Static

I couldn't resist bringing my new-to-me vintage camera out for this morning's photos even though it's more of a prop than anything--I thought the camera suited my ladylike and retro outfit. It's been awhile since I wore a longer skirt (they always make me feel short), but the light tulle layers of this one were too pretty to resist. The outfit was also a hit with my friends as I received several compliments when I wore it; I'm always surprised when my more "understated" outfits are more admired than some of the ones I put together and personally find rather striking. I do quite like this outfit though; the skirt feels elegant and the dress (which I'm wearing as a top) always has a romantic touch with its lace details. The perfect sort of outfit for playing with your vintage camera, browsing used book stores, and perhaps even baking some whoopie pies...

Outfit details:
slip dress (worn as top, similar here)
vintage belt
Seychelles heeled loafers

Those shoes make the whole outfit - which is quite a great one on itself, but really, those shoes have me in pains of longing and lust over them, they're THAT gorgeous!

I am in actual love with your blue hair. It's so flattering on you! The length of the skirt is too ;)

I haven't been in here in a while, but wow your short blue hair looks so good on you!

I do wear knee length skirts a lot for faith reasons. No wonder people think I'm shorter than I actually am when they look at my photos. Oh well :-/

Your outfit looks very ladylike, and you look more approachable and less intimidating with that kind of outfit, for some reason!

I think that skirt hits you at the knees perfectly and the top of that slip dress is romantic looking.
