Outfit: Diner


I grew up stopping at greasy-spoon diners with my family whenever we road tripped and post-college graduated to hanging out in them around 2am when stomachs are rumbling and conversations start to get good. Lancaster has a handful of great diners and I've visited all of them--mostly in the wee hours of the morning. Ah good old 24 hour stores and restaurants! And as much as I love the milkshakes and fries, the vintage look and feel of a diner, is part of the appeal. It's not all about "blast from the past" authenticity, but rather a coziness and relaxed atmosphere; at a diner you never feel rushed. Still based on looks alone, Neptune Diner is Lancaster's most attractive diner; beautiful chrome exterior and long narrow "rail car" shape that makes you feel as if you stepped back in time. Since I have spent so many hours in my local diners, it seemed fitting to finally snap a few pictures here--and my dress from Unique Vintage matched perfectly.

Gorgeous dress and fun photoshoot! Vintage dresses have so much character! I know you have worn a few items by Miss a Patina before and I was wondering about the fit since they don't have many size options. I've heard their small runs a little big and is about a 4-6. What are your thoughts on their sizing, especially for dresses? Thanks!

@Jackie Armstrong, yes I'd say Miss Patina runs a little bit large--or rather the small is a small, rather than a xsmall. But the tops are a good fit--like blouses & sweaters fit well, but dresses feel a little loose/large for me. Skirts would also have a slightly bigger waistband than I typically wear. But again not sure it's running large but rather I usually wear an xs and the smallest they have is a small.

Such a great photo location! What time of the day was it? I wonder because the dinner seems completely empty :) the dress and purse are also a great match. Since I live in Europe dinners are only part of my movies imaginario and I found them amazingly good looking!
