In The Navy

Today was a long day of teaching. I'm still looking for the right place in my small apartment to take pictures on those days where there is no day left in the day. I actually used Picassa to crop and mess with the picture a little. Fan-cee. Anyway, today I wore some old favorites. The sweater is from the 1950's. I got it when I was in college in the 80's.
GAP navy wool dress-thrifted

The necklace is one of my favorites. I bought the little bauble at a yard sale when I was a college student around 1982 and put it on a chain.

By that time I had moved from Punk Rock to Rockabilly. The Stray Cats ruled. I still have a lot of the vintage costume jewelry I bought back then. The great thing about buying jewelry is that you don't have to worry about it still fitting 30 years later. :)
Does it look like I'm about to fall asleep? I am. zzzzzzz

P.S. any hints or tips for taking awesome photos? This is probably what has kept me from posting more often. Thanks, wonderful bloggers.


  1. That vintage sweater is fantastic! Long days of teaching can definitely give one that expression.

    My biggest tip for taking quality photos is to have either a photographer or a tripod and a remote.

  2. Thanks La Historiada de Moda. Good advice. I have a tripod. But haven't tried using it yet. Baby steps. I think it's also a lighting issue. I'll see if I can work that out today. Thanks for the comment. :)
