Tie-Dye Cowgirl

Silk tie-dye shift by Rory Beca, turquoise necklace from Santa Fe, and vintage leather belt

First outfit post of the summer! Many more to come, but these photos were taken on a whim because I happened to like the outfit a lot after throwing it on.

The belt was my dad's, until I stole it a couple months ago, and he wore it throughout the eighties, so it's well-worn. I love the rustic feel of it and I think the yellowy-brown leather goes nicely with the reds and yellows of the dress. The clash between the rough leather and the silk is cool, too.

And maybe you noticed, this is the first time you've seen my face on this blog! I've kept it well-hidden until now, but I thought it was time to reveal my true identity to my faithful readers.
