until then I'll sing my song

I went to the Farmer's Market today and bought the most delicious home made mustard...I'm dreaming of it as we speak. Lately, for spring I've been wanting light, floaty silhouettes and pastels, but I put this dress on and everything else just fell into place.


This is the dress I modified with pins, and I really like the bubbley tiered effect it makes. I love this straw hat...it's a good place holder until I find a straw boater...

shoes - Mossimo
hat - vintage

bracelet - vintage


I loved American Girl books when I was growing up, and my favorite series was the Felicity series. This cardinal charm reminded me of the sampler she makes with the saying "Faithful Friends Forever Be."




I've got the most fantastic antique store finds and I'm itching to wear them...but I'm trying to resist at least until Memorial Day weekend...

Ooh I love what you've done with the hem on your dress!
In regards to your hat hunting, I was going to suggest Primark because they have loads of straw boaters in at the moment...but then I remembered you're in the States.
So just ignore me. ^_^
Oh and thank you for the comment on my blog too!
