September is the month that never really makes up it's mind as to what season it wants to be. We had quite a long stretch of chilly late fall weather so I packed up all of my summer clothes.
And wouldn't you know, it was decidedly summery this weekend. So goes life in the midwest.
So I pulled out this Bernie Dexter dress to wear to a wedding we shot this weekend. It is such a fun dress that I couldn't resist the chance to wear it one more time.
To be honest, I'd been having a bit of an identity crisis lately. Between the growing out pixie, the new hair color and the having to wear more modern clothes to work, I just wasn't feeling like me.
Plus, I've been doing so much costuming, I haven't even had the chance to start on any of my fall sewing projects!! But this weekend, I really felt like I found myself again.
My hair is finally back at pincurl length again! It probably would have been ok earlier, but with work being crazy, I hadn't had time to really play with it until this weekend!
And I finally gave up on the reddish brown hair color. It just wasn't me! So back to darker hair it was.
Sometimes it's nice to have a break from all of the effort that goes into dressing vintage, but just like any vacation, it feels good to be home again once you're done!
