Mrs. Lilien has had me on a Palm Springs kick. Palm Springs is calling me and my vintage swimsuit to a swanky Palm Springs hotel with a swanky pool. Of course, this vintage late-1960s Barkcloth, with the most amazing design, cupcake buttons, and…yes…sequins, is coming with me. But I might have to check a bag…this thing weighs about ten pounds!
I love all of the visual weight from the pattern and texture, yet it fits beautifully so it doesn’t look overwhelming. Vintage MUST fit well or it’s not worth your time, my friends.
But Palm Springs? Palm Springs is always worth your time.
“Excuse me, which direction is the pool?”
This pattern reminds me so much of the new Kate Spade Florence Brodhurst design:
Doesn’t it have a lot of similar elements? Everything old is new again!
Have a GREAT Monday, my dears! I’m so excited for this week and I hope you are, too. It’s mid-July, high-summer, and I’m ready to make the most of every second of it.
Very cute! 🙂 http://www.simplyalexandramyfavoritethings.blogspot.com
