Ain't that a kick in the head?

 Dress: 1950s vintage, from Minx (last worn here);
Ostrich purse: vintage, from Agora;
Shoes: Target (from my wedding); Watch: gift from Marilou.

And ... I am back. Since this summer has been full of weddings for Jeremiah and I, I'd like to share one particular Saturday that was very special. My friends Val and Sam got married in an 1840s church in Oxford, a small town that is steeped in history as the college campus where their relationship began. With the couple's love of Southern Gothic literature, vintage looks and 1950s swing dancing, it made for an incredible night for all, punctuated with music from Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and all the era's best. I thought I'd honor the couple in two other ways: a vintage dress of my own and a blog post dedicated to their awesomeness.

Val embroidered handkerchiefs as gifts for her bridesmaids.

A moment with the bride's dad.
