Floral Fun

Yesterday I joined many other of my well dressed vintage friends for an afternoon Garden Party filled with treats and sangria at the lovely home of Garb-Oh Vintage owner Rhiannon.

Prior to my ride over to Rhiannon’s, I took some pictures of my full ensemble.

This late 1950s or early 1960s number is another from my dear friend Alicia.  I feel so honored that she passes along her past treasures to me.  I simply adore the composition of this dress with the large bouquet burst in the bodice and cascading flowers throughout the skirt.

It was a lovely afternoon, despite the scattered showers. Oh, Oregon…

Also in attendance (although I failed to capture their beautiful dresses) were Lulu of Portland’s shop, Lulu’s Vintage and Jennifer of Jambalaya Vintage.  Rhiannon was a gracious host and let us dig through her as-is pile, and many of us took home multiple garments.  Hannah was lucky enough to score some 1940s shoes! In white! I brought home some blouses.  And I even received a present from Solanah! She gave me her Grand Canyon blouse! Since it was embroidered with what appeared to be jackalopes and I simply adore jackalopes. I am so very honored!

  1. Garden parties are my favourite type of party! Your dress is so pretty and perfect. I adore the colour of the floral pattern.

  2. All of your gals look so sweetly beautiful. I adore your floral print sundress (anything in the teal/aqua/turquoise family equals instant love in my books) and how terrific it looks with your hair colour. My grandma has curtains (from the very early 60s) with a strikingly similar pattern still up in her little house to this day.

    Wishing you a gorgeous Monday & week ahead,

  3. Like your dress and hair and the hat is so pretty. I think you had a wonderful afternoon in this lovely estate. The pics with the hen are funny! I would like to have such a party here in my area. Hugs from Germany!

  4. How do I not know your blog? I just found you via Vixen Vintage, scrolled down, saw the blue dress you are wear and my jaw just dropped. It is extraordinary! So glad to be your newest follower.

    Thanks doll,
