I've had this 50s tan dress forever & I'm always on the fence about whether I should keep it or sale it. Today, it was hanging on the rack to be sold at tomorrow's Flea Market sale, but I tried it on, and now I can't sell it again. I didn't do much today, except eat Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles for breakfast w/Pete, family and friends, then get ready for tomorrow's sale while listening to country records. It's been raining like crazy all day & the palm trees are beating on my windows. It's the perfect time for hanging in doors. In these pictures, I'm lounging in the "back room" which also serves as my wardrobe room, library, sewing room, and general disaster area. Big eyed creatures line the walls.
This is one of my all time favorite country music songs, sang by the beautiful Jeannie C. Riley. I remember first hearing her on the backside of a Johnny Cash record, when I was probably 19 years old. It was one of my first records, and likely the most influential. I felt I could relate to her songs about growing up poor and becoming tough and rowdy. You could hear the grit in her voice, and I loved to listen and sing along, and still do. What a lover and a fighter, Ms. Jeannie C. Riley.
See you on the back side of somewhere.
Outfit: 50s floral tan dress, Bass oxford shoes, vintage butterfly brooch (thrifted), Rodarte for Target tights.
