RV

Dress: Thrift Joshua Tree Shoes: Jeffery Cambell

I dropped my boyfriend off at work today as I typically do on my day off. And as usual I had him take a couple of pictures. There's this weird old RV in the parking lot behind his work and for lack of other scenery we decided to shoot there. I swear this thing hasn't been moved from the parking lot in over 10 years. If I had the money I would love to buy it, fix it up, and travel around the states for a summer or two.... but that's not going to happen anytime soon so I instead I will day dream about it.

that rv is so rad! what a cool backdrop. and i love that dress. i am almost certain i had one similar to that in the 90s. i loved it so much! but mine was really long. anyway, you look great!

You have such interesting backdrops for your outfit photos. I need to explore more and find different places to take outfit photos! I love this dress. It looks so warm, you don't even need a sweater or cardigan! I think it's warm here too, but I've been stuck inside all day. I have been blogging, discovering new blogs and AVOIDING homework. So yeah, boo.

I just need bobby pins to keep the hat in place, that's it. Hehe. I need to buy more of those hats, because I always wanted them, but never knew where I can find affordable ones. ETSY all the way! Yeah H&M has amazing clothes right now... in love!

Zoe_Flood said...

your hat is so darling! and that white lace is so tasteful and obviously vintage, I think thats why I love it so much!

oh you live in NP! I grew up In HB and anahiem haha. I live in Downtown LA but I want a bigger appt, its kind of cramped sometimes with my boyfriend :[ hehe, I'm always open to a thrifting adventure! I would really like to go to the rose bowl, I still havent!
I think you remind me of her alot! you seem european in a way,
and I totally agree, I mean I'll see girls who wear just a tee shirt and no pants, its like, YOU KNOW YOUR ASS IS HANGING OUT RIGHT? hahaha.

I love this too much! I am so glad I came across your blog. You have a certain retro style that I just love. It's really refreshing and lovely. :]
Plus, I am madly in love with your hat. It's funny that I posted my rant on my love for hats just yesterday. haha

I like juxtaposition of the sweet lace and the rusty RV, both in cream.

And a love the dress, it's unbelievably adorable.

Your lacy dress is envious, it's so delicately pretty! I think I'm especially loving it because I've been eying anything lace recently, too...

And I love the backdrop, the old RV gives your photos that lovely indie feel. :)
