Novelty Print of the Day -- 1950's Owl Print Day Dress

Ohhhhhhh my goodness! This dress is too adorable for words.
Owl lovers, are you smiling?
This has seriously got to be one of the cutest dresses I've ever seen in my life!
Besides that ridiculously cute print, I'm loving the bow tie at the neck and the cap sleeves, not to mention the fact that there are rhinestones down the black trim of the skirt.

On Etsy from seller FrauleinMarlene

matching belt too? so sweet.

Just realizing today how much I miss these novelty print posts.
I promise to try to post more in the future. Life is full of little hiccups, but I truly miss looking for these darling little unique pieces, and I've got to get back on to sharing them with you, dear blogger friends.

Happy Saturday, everyone!

Wednesday Wishlist :: 70's Leather Sandals

Goodness, I'm going crazy about leather sandals from the 70's lately.
I really want to get a pair for myself,
and am still on the hunt to find the perfect fit and style.

These remind me so much of what I've seen my mom wearing in old pictures
when she was about my age.
I imagine wearing them with little tiered sun dresses, or high waisted figure-slimming bell bottoms. Wouldn't that look cute?
I especially love the wooden heeled pairs, so bohemian chic.

Enjoy my current Etsy faves below -- gorgeous, every single pair.
Aren't those huge platforms a RIOT?!

Anna Miminoshvili

Stumbled upon these gorgeous photographs of designer Anna Miminoshvili's creations here, and it became obvious that I had to share them with you.

I wish to step into the dreamy, foggy landscape of these pics and stay there for a day or two.

Love the details of the dresses as well, they're so feminine. The first one reminds me of a princess strolling outside of her castle.
