Vintage Valentines Day Look.. #1

Hello everyone. I have lot's of Valentine's looks to share with you! and at the end you will have to guess which one I end up wearing! Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays. I love all of the red and pink cute hearts, vintage valentines, love, and of course cupid! ! Keep stopping by to see all of the inspiration looks for Valentine's Day. This piece is a vintage dress probably from the 80's, but I decided to add some crinoline under it to make it have a 50's feel...since the 50's are my favorite. I found this dress last summer up at the campus Goodwill, and it was half off! so this is what I came up with using this dress..what do you think?


Vintage dress: $2.50
Crinoline: $3.99 from Ohio Thrift
Merona tights: $2.00 from Goodwill (new)
Merona shoes: $2.00 from Salvation Army


Total look: $10.49





What am I dreaming of for Valentines Day?


Ha ha..I said "dreaming" lol. I do love this gorgeous pink.. my favorite color!


Check out this site! Amazing..and all handmade.






Don't you just want to squeeze him? lol


I will never fall out of love with this dress..

I would never be able to afford this Lazoro dress, but I would love to have it! 

Okay.. so these are Valentine's dreams..lol
Dear Cupid, I don't want much...lol

  1. hi Heather! That post was bit of a venture for you. You pulled it off. Did a great job. Do you know Anita at Castles Crowns and Cottages? I featured her last Friday. She makes those stunning dresses but her's are made of paper!!! ya, paper!! They aren't to be worn just admired. Crazy, huh? I loved the ruffles under the other wise longer and flowing dress. Great, great idea, you smart gal, you!!!!!!

  3. Blog hopping from Frugal Living and More - the dress is cute but more of a Christmas than Valentine's day look.

  4. Stopping by from Helene's link-up. LOVE that red dress! I don't know if I could pull of the crinoline underneath as well as you can, but I'd be willing to bet it would look great on it's own. What's the fabric?

  5. I love your Valentine outfit, really cute with the crinoline under it. I thought I might be too old for crinoline until I saw Wendy Malick (61 ish) on a talk show with a simple pretty dress, crinoline and flats. Sooo pretty.
