Me-Made-May Week 2

Another week of Me-Made-May outfits!  Isn't his month going by so fast?  Here's my round-up of outfits from this last week...

Day 5: 
In celebration of Cinco de Mayo, I wore my 'Kitten' 1950s skirt and my 'Pretty Pendrell' blouse underneath a sweater (it's still not that warm yet!).


Day 6:
It's a Scottie dog day!!  I wore my new 'Scottie Dress' (McCall 3820 from 1940) with my Scottie dog shoes from Irregular choice and my Ness jacket.



Day 7:
I love my 'Luck o'the Irish' dress (also from 1940) so much--it's super, super soft.  The green is a hard colour to photograph but it's a bit more emerald green in real life!


Day 8:
I revisited an old favourite today, my 'Midcentury Madness' dress which I wore with a pumpkin cardigan and brown Mary Jane shoes.


Day 9: Big day at work today!!  This is my power outfit.  The 'Hawk's Eye View Dress' is from the BurdaStyle Sewing handbook.  I paired the dress with my red Ness Jacket, vintage 1940s shoes and a red belt.  We took the photo in our very brightly painted hallway--which messes with the colour a bit (no need to adjust your screen...lol)!


Day 10:
On day 10 I wore my 'Rabbie Burns' dress.  I just love this dress and wear it all the time.  I wore it with black boots and a black belt.


Day 11:
Date day!  David and I went to our favourite local tea parlour, Anteaques, to enjoy high tea.  I wore my 'Celebration' dress while enjoying Margherita Assam and a tasty scone with fresh cream and jam.



Day 12:
A trip through the local Regent Road Park called for a casual dress.  I wore my 'Purple Parfait' pinafore with my 1940s Dubarry blouse.



YAY!  Me-Made-May is so much fun.  A super big thank you to David for taking all the photos!
