A perfectly timed kiss (outfit #59)

As promised, here is the outfit that I wore to present Pueblo Modern: Inside and Out.  It's a fabulous 1940s dress in a gray floral, and red stripe pattern.  It actually has a matching bolero, but it was too hot to wear it.  The dress was an Etsy purchase, my shoes are Poetic License, and my red crinoline (not vintage) was from eBay.  The absolute best part of my outfit is my 1940s plastic novelty brooch.  It has two hearts that say, "kiss timer," and a working hour glass that you can flip!! It's my favorite piece of jewelry right now!  We stopped by Taffy's to grab some ice cream before heading to a park to snap these shots.  A guy walked by, who can best be described as Latino Elvis, and asked me if I just got done with a dance performance.  "Nope, this is just me," I replied.  He said, "Really? That's how you rock it? Sooo cool!" 
 It's always nice to get a positive response when you stick out like a sore thumb. ;)
