Mexican Summer

what I wore:
dress: handmade.
shoes: thrifted, vintage.
sunglasses: Ray Ban
necklace: my grandmothers.

Hey guys! so I know I've been posting a lot about dresses I've been making but it's honestly one of the only activities I've been doing outside of work. I really am pleased with how this dress turned out! I used a vintage fabric I found with my ma at a local estate sale.
I had been looking forward to making a backless dress for quite some time now. The heat around here is nearly intolerable! This is one of the designs I'll be creating once I get my shop up and running again but like I mentioned before, I am definitely willing to take custom orders at this time via email.

Anyway, I scored these Ray Bans several months back at Ross for $79.99! Isn't that a steal?! I had been looking for the perfect sunglasses for quite sometime and I just KNEW I would find a pair at Ross for half the cost and boy was I right. I pretty much gasped when I saw them and shortly after trying them on they went home with me. I've gone through so many huge, over sized, bug eye style glasses through the years so finding the perfect pair was so refreshing... However, I still love my ugly bug eye shades. HA!

I leave you with one of my favorite songs from 2009. I hope you soak it up on this summer day! (or winter day depending on where you're at! (;)

I used to do a lot of sewing and I've been a bit of a slacker making creations lately, but you are definitely inspiring me to try a new dress pattern. Can't wait to keep up with your outfits :)
