Vintage 70's Dress and a Hat Obsession

Bucket has a serious hat obsession.
Or maybe it's just wearing things on his head.
He loves his sisters' headbands, a tiara, or even his pajama pants.
He also wore my bra the other day.
But let's not talk about that...

70'S DRESS - Hand-me-down (made by my cousin)
KUKUI NUTS - borrowed from my mom
GOLD BRACELET - iSanctuary
BROWN HEELS - Forever 21

BRACELET - iSanctuary
BLACK SANDALS - Urban Outfitters

Here are some outfits from the week.  The dress is a hand-me-down from my great aunt.  Her daughter (my 2nd cousin) made it for her in the 1970's.  I was thrilled to receive a vintage piece like this and wore it to a family event.  They immediately recognized the dress and were excited to see it passed down.  The second outfit is a Target one.  The pink jeans and striped shirt both are from Target and the black shoes I got online from Urban Outfitters for $10!!!

There's something special about wearing a real vintage piece, especially when it has family history behind it.  It's definitely a one of a kind.  Kinda like a little hat loving boy I know.

I think Bucket has stolen my heart...if he grows up and becomes a stylist, there is only one thing to blame--your blog. But that could be a good profession! Hope you are having a fun summer so far Claire. I know I always say this, but I would love to see you. Tuesdays are usually the days I'm in LA and sometimes later in the week too. What day is good for you--maybe we can at least have coffee and or go shopping!
