OOTDs...Or Is It Outfits Of The Weekend?

I never do OOTDs, because frankly, my workaday outfits have left a little bit to be desired lately. Think yoga pants, random T-shirt, hoodie, and sneakers...not even vintage sneakers. Hey, I work in front of the computer in my own house! Who am I trying to impress, here? But I digress...

This past weekend I got a chance to do my vintage thing TWICE!

First up, Saturday morning:

This is one of my favorite novelty-print early-60's dresses. It has clocks and calendars and the days of the week written in French, which totally reminds me of the French teacher/tutor I had in 6th grade, Madame Clinard. I can hear her voice in my head right now..."Bonjour, Dina!!!" The cashmere (mmmm, cashmere) sweater is an estate sale find. Shoes are thrifted, not vintage, but whatever. I was telling my hubby the other day that if a person has a whole wardrobe of vintage shoes, they are truly hard-core. You may notice there's no Bakelite happening here...I was going to a religious service where you need to be vewwy, vewwy quiet!

Here's Sunday:

Going to the Vintage Fashion Expo in Santa Monica. Dress is a 40's Etsy find. I got it for a steal, because it needed somewhat major restoration, something I love to do wen I have the time! You can't see it, but the scarf in my hair is a souvenir scarf from Hawaii, an estate sale find. The handbag is one of my MoMosMadness upcycled 60's handbag with my own hand-painted tiki design. Bakelite earrings and bangles were bought from mix of sales, antique stores, eBay, etc. Shoes are thrifted, vintage repro's.

Hmmm, that was fun! Maybe there are more OOTD's in my future! What do you guys think? should I do more?




  1. Both outfits are adorable on you, but the second one is especially great. Nice finds!

  2. Thanks, Dana! I do love those 40s dresses :-)

  3. You look absolutely gorgeous both days. I love the dresses!

  4. Yes, I hear you. I don't dress up at home but about the same as you. I tried to change my ways awhile back and have some fun, but ended up snagging a skirt in the garage the first day I tried. Oh, well. It was thirfted and only cost me $2, thank goodness, and I was able to repair it.

    Super outfits! Whatever you had to do to get that 40s dress to looks so great, you sure did a good job of it. Yes! Would love to see more outfit posts.

    Hope you had a great time at the Vintage Expo. Went many years ago and it was amazing!
