Another week and another Friday Favorites! I hope all of you in the States are getting prepared for a relaxing Labor Day weekend. I'll be going (back!) to Universal Studios with Michael so we can spend Labor Day in Diagon Alley.
Ms. Micheline Pitt completely sold me on them! Doesn't she look amazing?
What are some of your favorite things this week?
June and I are always lurking Etsy for new purchases, and after including paper dolls in my last Friday Favorites I searched Etsy for some. I did find some amazing dolls and I also stumbled upon Belle Hibo. These are retro doll brooches are made from vintage fashion doll illustrations, and they totally remind me of June and me. I would the one on the left and Amanda would be the one on the right! Also, doesn't the dress on the right look this Lindy Bop Dress? I've always wanted that Lindy Bop Dress, but now I really want it! Okay--I got a little side-tracked, but seriously aren't these brooches great? They're obviously a little 'in your face', but I have never had an issue with that. ;)

I think I'm one of seven people who ISN'T stoked for Fall/Autumn. I know it means pumpkin flavored things, but it also means that the sun and I can't be BFF's anymore. The only way for me to like Fall is if I embrace Fall colors. These two Lindy Bop dresses make me excited for Fall with their deeper tones. The first one the 'Zarah' is appropriately described as a 1940s Librarian....which in a nutshell describes how I want to dress. I love al the details, and the print of the dress. The red piping is just the cherry on top of the cake..err dress. The 'Penny' Dress is so classic and I love the neck details. I can definitely see this dress being a work staple for me, but also classy enough for a nice dinner. I know we've talked about Lindy Bop a lot in the past, but they're really impressing me lately with their styles.
I typically stick to hair followers or silk scarves for my hair accessories, but I can't help but fall in love with a few new hair accessories. I've been wanting this turban for such a long time, because it reminds me of Lucille Ball! When cooler weather hits I'll probably buy it. Also, it would be the best at hiding my roots when I get too lazy to color my hair. Next, this fascinator from Pinup Girl Clothing screams quintessential Southern style to me. I want to wear it and then go drink sweet tea on Amanda's grandma's front porch. Sadly, it's recently sold-out, but I still stare at the picture longingly. Lastly, this amazing Louise Green Karen Hat sold by Trashy Diva is too adorable. I'll basically buy anything if it has cherries on it, and it reminds me slightly of Mary Poppins' hat.
It's no surprise that I love this Breakfast Club Dress by Steady Clothing since..well I love most things by Steady Clothing. I've wanted this dress ever since I saw how amazing the print was on Amanda's crop top and skirt. I've never met a novelty print that I didn't love, and I'm a breakfast food fiend so it just makes perfect sense that I want this dress! I mean, what could be better than eating breakfast for dinner while wearing the Breakfast Club Dress?! Ron Swanson would approve.
Recently I've been watching a lot of films set in the 60's and this includes Grease 2. Everyone loves Sandy's style, but for me, the ladies in Grease 2 have amazing style. I mean, those sunglasses and all of that color!? Don't even get me started on the bowling alley scene and the luau. I know I'm probably alone in this, but man oh man I love Grease 2...but maybe it's because I want a "cool rider".
Do y'all have any plans for Labor Day?
