On the 3rd Day of Christmas...

My True Love Gave to Me...






Three French Hens!



I really don't know what French Hens are nor did I know how to dress like them, haha! So I came up with this. I think it would be something a French college girl or young lady would wear in the 50's. The dress is homemade vintage and I love the pattern on the fabric. Isn't it like a French country side?


And look I have French Braids and am wearing a beret!

Ok, ok. Cheese. Too much.

I... love... this. It's so colorful and modern, but it has a total WWII vibe. It reminds me of that movie Never Let Me Go; they wear a lot of stuff like that. I think. I seem to remember. Anyway, this is one of my faves on you! That hat! <3
