After Christmas, my favorite New Orleans boutique, Trashy Diva, extended their 50% off the clearance rack sale. Since Santa had not brought me enough vintage reproduction clothing, I couldn't resist. I had my eye on the Lillian Dragon dress, but had to pick up a few more things on the sale rack. One that took me by suprise was the Jenny in military green.
Dress: Trashy Diva "Jenny" in long sleeve
Hat: Ducks in a Row, sold on UniqueVintage.com
I usually pick out clothing with bright colors and whimsical patterns, so this one went unoticed during my last visit to TD. However, when I tried it on, I instantly loved its understated, simple elegance. The fit is very flattering and the knit fabric is extremely comfortable. I think it goes perfectly with my new hat from UniqueVintage.com. It's from a brand called Ducks in a Row, who have many more adorable hats on their website.
I originally was planning on wearing the hat with a black dress, but I think the deep military green compliments it much better.
A special guest appearance by my neighbor's cat, Rosie, who has decided she is our cat now (I guess our cat food tastes better). She is checking out my vintage purse that once belonged to my grandmother.
Two seconds before Rosie bolted. She hates being picked up.
