Vintage dress, yet again

This dress makes me want to hang out in a wood paneled basement and listen to Nancy Sinatra records. I totally remember this style of fabric (where everything was this color scheme and had a vaguely nature-ish pattern on it that made it look like an abstract field of wheat or leaves?). My parents had sheets like this when I was little (with matching LION HEAD pillowcases.) Anyway, the dress will be in the shop soon because I can't justify keeping it. But I also couldn't justify selling it without wearing it once first. Because I am selfish.
Glasses - Prada
Dress - thrifted vintage, handmade
Tights - Target
Shoes - Miss Me (free - won gift certificate to Modcloth)

So it's been above freezing here for a few days and a ton of the snow is melting! Which is awesome (until I get gutter-splashed by the bus, which I have somehow managed to avoid thus far.) I am so ready for spring... my mind is entirely focused on one thing, err, two things:
Oh yes, biking to work and around the lakes. I am trying to be realistic about it though. This is Minnesota. It WILL snow again. Probably several times. But this thaw is the small ray of hope I needed to get me through the rest of February.

I like the dress. The basement of my house is wood paneled, and painted yellow. Very Minnesota, and very 70s.

Whenever you wear something on the blog I'm tempted to buy it until I remember you are a petite lil thing. And I? Am not! This looks great on you!

Those shoes are awesome!
And yes, it is so tempting to dream the spring might actually be HERE! I don't know if I can handle more snow.

Fab shoes! Growing up we had lion head blankets! (and one that looked like a leopard pelt)
