Golden Garbs- In a 1960's mood!

I apologize for the lack of consistent posts lately. I have been crazy busy creatively directing and organizing a fashion show that will take place on October 8th at the Rialto Theater, in downtown Tucson (more details on that later). I escaped the walls of my office-slash-studio on Friday evening, to attend a family members wedding. I was feeling the need for a change, a new inspiration and in a little bit of a 1960s mood. So, I scoured the inventory in my closet and pulled out this little yellow number. It was made in 1962 by the Lanz Company. I paired it with my black glass beaded jewelry, patent black bow clutch, and black babydoll style-skinny heel pumps. A little more snug than I remember, it looks like I need to quit indulging in the sweets when I'm stressed te-he-he!

I've been reading for a while now, and thought it time to say hello, especially when there are shoes to talk about :) I love the Oxford styles, I have a pair- in patent leather (black and cream) and I love them, they always get plaenty of wear in the cooler months, so versatile. Oh, and I loved your outfit too- Lovely.
