One of my favorite things to do when I’m preparing a vintage item to sell is styling the item. Sometimes, I style it in my mind and I don’t go as far as putting together an entire outfit around an item. Sometimes, though, I can’t resist putting an outfit together. There are so many great combinations that you can come up with from one item!
The Honey Bee True Dress was an item that I couldn’t resist styling. On the hanger it looked a little baggy and frumpy. I’m a HUGE fan of floral and patterns. Huge. More signs that I’m a grandma at heart. When I saw this dress, I immediately envisioned a Pretty Woman style get together. Pretty woman, post Rodeo Drive that is.
Maybe I wanted an excuse to wear a big brimmed hat. Regardless, I like how it all came together.
Sometimes, this job can be fun!
And those lovely handpainted leather sandals from the 1940’s will be available soon.
