    Huh, I never would've guessed that you were shorter than me (I'm 5'4").

    Today, I am wearing my new Aris Allen black slacks. I am also wearing a necktie I got from the thrift store. It is 58" long. It has no logo on it. It it slightly padded.

    A lot of love right there in that picture. I bet she views you as her favorite buddy as well.

    I'm not sure. The company Aris Allen makes dance stuff. However, the pants seem to be just any old pants, made from polyester, with vintage styling. :D

    Actually, I don't know how to dance. :p

    I'm glad you like the pants! I plan on getting a black jacket, as to make a suit out of them. I also need a grey fedora. :D

    +1 and if she grows up smart - you'll always be her best buddy. Yes, she will and should develop her own circle of friends and, eventually, boyfriends, etc. but always having you to call or stop by and visit with to really talk to would be great gift for her, that I can only hope she'll appreciate.

    But that is all in the future, for now, the two of you look awesome and - as I know you do - just enjoy the time you spend with her.

    Here in Merry England we are only allowed 12 sunny days a year by law, this being the first day of my allowance I thought I'd go to the coast. No real vintage clothes at all but the setting is, I hope, sufficiently attractive on it's own.

    Thank you, jolly kind of you to say so. On my way to Cromer I stopped at Holt (A beautiful, quant and wealthy little town, much favored by second home Londoners) and I did all the charity shops where I picked up a lovely Lochinvar wool tie.

    Love finding wool ties out in the wild. So often they have been attacked by the dreaded moths though!

    1950s gingham dress, 1930s or 1940s (-ish? I'm not 100% sure) white beaded purse that once belonged to my maternal grandmother, and a necklace that was my paternal grandmother's (not that you can really see either of those, but I'm sentimental about them). It's been in the low 60s the last couple of weekends, which is good enough for me to break out the sandals and imagine it's already summer!

    P.S. Sorry I look really snobby in this photo, haha. I discovered today that I make involuntary strange faces when spinning around. lol Who knew! I'd never seen photographs of myself spinning before today, but the full skirts of 1950s "new look" dresses were made for twirling around!
