A Bird in the Hand

All About the Outfit:
This is one of my favorite dresses from Pinup Girl Clothing!  (Junebugs dress in Blue Birdcage print).  I own the orange and pink version too (seen here), as well as the solid green and pink style (seen here).  If I acquire the squirrel print one, my collection will be complete!  The fit is perfect (XS for measure) and it's super comfortable as well.  Plus, while vintage inspired with a demure collar, I think it passes for an any era sundress as well.  I believe this is the first time I've had this dress photographed for the blog, or even for an Instagram snap, though I have worn this a few times since getting it late this winter in one of PUG's famous Yard Sales!  I think this dress is my favorite dress from PUG (so far...)!

PS- Thanks for tolerating a brief time-out from blogging the past week!

Outfit Details:
Dress- Pinup Girl Clothing (on sale!)
Brooch- Luxulite
Belt- Bernie Dexter
Shoes- Bamboo via ModCloth (also on The Oblong Box Shop)

Music Time:
Nobody can accuse me of not zigging when one thinks I may zag.  I scream until I'm blue in the face about how much I love punk, indie, and metal but then I quickly turn around and get giddy about gangsta rap.  Ice Cube is one of my favorite rappers (I saw him nearly 4 years ago!) and he has a song "A Bird in the Hand" off of his 1991 Death Certificate album.    The content of the song has nothing to do with the print, other than having birds in common.  This song is catchy and aggressive at once, which to me is a fairly unique combination.  And, I've said it before and I'll say it again: I find rap music to be amongst some of the most interesting and insightful poetry of the modern era and this song is not an exception to that rule.

  18. Oh, you always look so lovely! Beautiful, classy and feminine! I loved the birdcage print! And so nice that you have so many of the dresses, hope you buy the one to complete the collection, the squirrel one :) Your shoes are also so beautiful! It's fine to be out a bit, like one of my blogger friends told me when it happened to me too "life s what happens while we are not posting" :) Hope you have a very nice weekend!
