This outfit post is really just one item in a long list of things I've done over the past few days to avoid working on my Archival Appraisal paper. What else is on the list? Well, on Thursday, my sister Amy and I dragged our mattresses into the living room and watched the entire 2006 Jane Eyre BBC miniseries for the first time. (Which I loved! I think it's better--in many respects--than the 2011 film version that I'm so fond of.) I also spent an embarrassing amount of time poking around online trying to find a vintage stuffed panda. (Amy is in love with a giant one at a local antique store, but it's marked $375...)

Plus, this morning I stopped by my friend Amanda's to pick up a special 20's dress; more on that in another post!

Not a whole lot of paper writing got done today (read: I didn't even start), but I've been meaning to post photos of this dress for a while, so at least there's that. It hits all the right notes for me, with the bowler hat print and off-kilter peplum. I wouldn't mind having an entire closet full of printed rayon dresses from the 40's!

Outfit details:
1940's dress via Eons Fashion Antique (a Pittsburgh vintage shop)
