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!
