Again these were from Crown and Crumpets, a charming place I mentioned in the last post. As you can tell we were certainly having a good time. We ordered the Darjeeling Second Flush with a side of soy milk and Momo Oolong Super Grade. It was delicious! My vintage cardigan that I got on etsy awhile back totally matched the wallpapers and table cloths! It was totally unplanned.


vintage dress and sunglasses, h&m belt, nine west booties

On Saturday we met up with my friend Bettie at Japantown for the Cherry Blossom Festival. I was quiet surprised that not many people dressed up. I was really excited when I saw couple of people wearing kimonos and a guy in a samurai outfit. Earlier in the day I tried shortening my dress by pinning it underneath my belt but it was really windy and I almost had a Marilyn Monroe moment. I'm still deciding whether I want to actually alter this dress to make it shorter. What do you all think?

that place looks so cute!

floral looks really amazing on you. and i dont think you should cut the skirt because the blue on the bottom makes the skirt look so good!

My knee jerk reaction is to hem every dress to 34" long....but I agree about the blue...don't cut it!

i was thinking of cutting it from the waist because i too love the bottom of the skirt..so i dont know. the length makes me legs look shorter haha.

interesting..34 inches starting from the shoulder? hehe, i just went to go measure and that's like creating mini dresses...and that i like! but i want to cut the dress from the waist so i won't cut the blue out from the bottom. i hope it will work!
