the Cherry Blossom Dress

Hi everyone,
I defended my master's thesis yesterday and wore this:
I am not totally done though, so please don't start congratulating just yet. (Sorry for the poor light conditions, it was raining terribly outside.)
It's gotten a bit snug since I last tried it on, but oh well.
(dress: thrifted, tag reads "e.c. star" *shoes: sanita * slip: thrifted)
If you're wondering, my degree is in historic preservation and my thesis was on mid-century Airstream brand travel trailers.  I'm going to be doing some very special "aluminum fever" themed posts coming up.
In other news, I was interviewed by Laura of Applied Glamour this week about makeup. If you're interested in product reviews and makeup in general you should wander over to her blog.

  1. I really enjoy the cherry print pattern. I also like the composition and lighting of the last photo, and how the two patterns in it contrast with each other.

  2. What a cool topic for a thesis! Those Airstreams look beautiful rolling down the road, but I have always wondered about their interiors.

  3. I LOVE Airstreams! What an interesting field of study. My best friend just bought a used camper, we're looking forward to some road trips! And thanks for the link :) glad you liked my intro!

  4. what a beautiful dress! It fits you fine! Historic preservation, that sounds so interesting. Yay! post more about your degree, that is interesting in itself.

  5. No better outfit in the world can beat those cherries to defended your master's thesis. I bet everybody was drooling over it. I am, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
    have a wonderful weekend, my dear Melina.

  6. hehe you picked the perfect outfit of course :D
    Looking forward to some aluminum posts

  7. What a beautiful dress! You look great in it! I'm envious that you live in Oregon. I lived there for about 2 years and LOVED it! ~Serene
