I've been 'shopping' in vintage catalogs again, building the perfect wardrobe, in my mind. The problem with that is, you can't just order the items and happily wait for them to arrive. Plus this catalog was a Simplicity pattern catalog, so first I'd have to find the pattern, and then find some good old fabric, and the hardest thing to find - time to sew!
These first 3 patterns are so me, or who I'd really like to be, casual and elegant, ready for Summer. The first pattern is for a wide legged lounger, which I think is so very chic. Next is really me, straw hat, pretty dress, picking flowers - if only that was really me. Finally, a chic Summer dress with a hood for drama, I love the way the shoulders are cut-in and the buttons are on an angle from the hood.
Next, a few casual Summer pieces for walking around town, or going to the market (In my glamorous dream world I go to the 'market' rather than the foodstore. At the market I carry a basket and shop for fresh produce from handsome young local farmers who tell me how fresh their vegetables are)
Then two more dresses, these would be for Summer afternoon lunches at sidewalk cafes, or early evening strolls on the boardwalk. Wow, I have a really great life going on in my mind!
In my mind I'm eating pizza at the cafes and ice cream on waffles at the boardwalk, not fancy foo-foo food, I like real food. I'll never be too glamorous for good old fashion cheesy pizza.
