Red Balloon

Red Ruby Vintage 1950s Style Halter Neck Full Skirt Sundress in a 1930s Novelty Cotton Gauze Fabric with Balloons and Streamers Print

In case you weren't convinced that I lived in a forever state of summer: I present to you a very weather appropriate outfit from last week.  While it has cooled down a ton (meaning it's no longer 90 degrees), having bare arms is still comfortable during the day.  Since she did come from Australia, this Red Ruby Vintage dress is perfect for their summer weather.  Luckily, I get to enjoy this beauty all year long!

I'm not a huge fan of halter tops, and by that I mean I usually hate them.  Having something wrapped around my neck makes me feel claustrophobic.  But this dress is made from a gauze cotton, which means it's extremely light.  It almost feels like crepe paper!  It does require proper undergarments to wear outside, but my petticoat and strapless bra (which I would wear regardless) was the perfect amount of coverage.  As always, Gail takes the utmost care when constructing her dresses and this one is no exception.  I would have a closet full of her creations if I could!

Anyone else excited for the Black Friday sales this week?!  I may have already purchased a Pearl coat from Unique Vintage yesterday.  Can you blame me?  Their week long site wide sale is amazing (use code BEST25)!  If you're looking for a place to find the skinny on all the Black Friday sales, make sure to check back here when the clock strikes midnight on Friday.  I've been a super-sleuth and I'll have all the details here!
