Navy blue and rhinestones

When I snagged this 1940s day dress from Etsy, I immediately thought it would look cute paired with my Fiona Timantti hat. The shade of the hat and the dress are a very close match. Furthermore, the bow of the hat nicely emphasises the cute little bow at the neckline of the dress. The rhinestone buttons that run down the front add a subtle touch of glamour to the day dress.

These photos, like the ones in the previous post, were taken by my brother, Riku. When I asked him to snap a couple of outfit photos for me, we got a little carried away and ended up with hundreds of images. He's such a great photographer - and peep just how adorable his chihuahua, Poppy, is! She's such a star.
