Shadow Shot/Shutter Click

Hey Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday:



 Dresser tray shadow




Tea & Honey Bread's Shutter Click & Chat: Fantasy Wardrobe Remix, One Amazing Ensemble.  

I chose vintage items (with the exception of the black & white earrings).

The little black dress I would need to buy, the vintage men's black & white, checked, wool coat I've been wearing every winter since I was 18.  Yep....that's me wearing the coat in 1985.





Little black dress found here



I would have to have this bag



and both necklaces: the black & white for daytime, the red for evening



black & white earrings found here, red earrings found here


and we musn't forget shoes!  black shoes found here, red shoes found here


A nice fantasy....the reality is I rarely find vintage clothing suitable for a 5' 10" woman who wears a size 10 shoe.  Sigh.  I could always get the jewelry....

Lovely shadow shot. I'm not sure what it is? Some kind of sweet dainty little dish? With cute things inside it? Whatever it is I like the subtle shadow it cast.

And I also like that red bag! I want it! :)

Love the delicacy of your shadow! Quite intriguing!

And also love your comments that follow! Especially the last wistful one! (Sorry! I had to smile at this point! You see, I usually find if I want retro pants they are far too long legged for my mousy 5'2' height! Perhaps we should trade shops!)

Is this the Queen's tiara??? Pretty shot, now I have a question, what is this thing you speak of...a dress??? Oh yes, I remember the day. Back when (school) it was enforced and our only choice. We froze our bums off in deep snows walking to school in those silly things. Gimmee my jeans any day. But I too have those retro shots, the 'disco days', when we all wore the damn things. Can't imagine a trip to the hen house in one, but if Tasha Tudor could, hmmmm...

Just a country gal...

those black and white earrings are nice. and it's the best keeping and still wearing items you love over the years. I've got a few like that myself.

Very nice shadow shot. I'm amazed at how continuously creative they get...I'm a shadow shot lurker!

I love your vintage finds-such a great eye. Unfortunately, big butts weren't invented until J-Lo...vintage is not my friend either! :)

Jenn said...

Ooh I love the delicate lacy look of your shadow :)

I would have to have this bag I'll agree with that one, it is one hot little purse and those red shoes to match...gorgeous! All your selections are amazing.

Love the hair in your 80's photo :)
