Autumn Splendor Cocktail Dress

Hello everyone!
It has been a while since I last blogged about anything, and in one of my previous posts I had mentioned that I made a dress, but was waiting until there was more color change before I would shoot the photo’s for it.
The time has finally arrived. Just as I predicted, on or around Halloween we would receive more color, with November 1st bringing peak color.
I made this cocktail dress to wear on Thanksgiving. I wanted something fun and a bit retro to celebrate our first Thanksgiving in our new home.
Without further ado…Here is the dress…

IT WAS COLD!!! and Raining on us!! I brought warm clothes and fuzzies (fuzzies are like ugg boots from JustFab) to put on in the car after we shot these. It snowed in Western VA, and today it was sleeting outside here!
All I kept thinking was “WARM!” Lol!

Orange shoes from Shoedazzle. I love autumn, so of course I loved this fabric. I think it works for this 1960’s cocktail dress silhouette. 

I love how the color from the dress leaps into the trees behind me…or is it the other way around!
This was a few days ago when we were taking some test shots around my house.

So there it is. My fun vintage like Thanksgiving day dress. It really matches the trees around our home right now.

I hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween! We had a great time here. I posted pictures up on my Instagram account here, as well as some scenic photos from our freezing cold/rainy bike ride yesterday…it was fun!

Until next post,
Have a great coming week,
