tuesday remix: sister style

yesterday, mimi and i were in line at the post office, waiting to mail some packages. one of the men in front of us was wearing a red stocking cap, a red sweatshirt and navy blue wind pants. he also had a white beard and a beer belly. i likely wouldn't have noticed any of this if it hadn't been for for mimi who suddenly, and with wide eyes, pointed at the man and exclaimed, "SANTA"! i looked in the direction she was pointing and immediately muffled my laughter before shushing her. the man either didn't notice or pretended not to...but, in megan's words, "he was kind of asking for it in that get-up. i mean, everyone knows santa wears wind pants in the off season".

for this week's remix, we chose a vintage cynthia rowly dress that was, for a short time, a piece in the two birds' collection...until i stole it. sorry, but it had to be mine. i love this dress. it has such a mod, 60s feel to it, which is one of my favorite eras in fashion (although it was not actually made in the 60s, since cynthia rowly, the brand, wasn't even established until 1988). it is just such a classic, gorgeous piece. i adore the scalloped neckline and the sweet, rhinestone buttons on the sleeves. actually, i just love everything about this dress, so it was really fun to remix it! i hope you think so, too!

  1. you two are absolutely gorgeous! thanks so much for stopping by little seed :-).
    1.) adore the dainty scalloped neck of your dress.
    2.)the wedges from kohls are amazing - love the camel/white/black coloring

    great looks ladies! can't wait to see what you have in store for your next post :-)

  2. Haha, Santa! That's awesome, and he definitely wears wind pants on the off season. Love that thrifted lbd, and those dotted tights are SO cute! :)

  3. That's so funny! The other day a guy with a long white beard was mopping the floors at Target, and my son said, " Santa's cleaning Target?!"

    Love the shoes, ladies!

  4. Such a cute dress! I love the neckline and the dotted tights :)

  5. Totally LOL at the Santa thing, that is too cute!

    And I don't blame you for stealing that dress - it is really cute! I love both looks! The buttons on the sleeves are so cute!

  6. always enjoy your sister remix style. I adore that LBD, the scalloped neckline is fabulous! Looks simply elegant with black tights and nude heels or with a gorgeous fur vest and pokka dotty tights. You girls are queen of remixing


  7. LOVE that dress. LOVE. I totally dig the black on black and I can't get over how much I love that vest!!!! Oh and your polka dot tights are adorbs!

  8. What a fantastic dress! Love the twist of the vest and belt.


  9. Loving that dress, the details in it by itself are lovely. I also love the remix, with the fur vest and polka dot tights! :)

  10. I like the idea of Santa, in his off-season, chillaxing in sweats and giving the reindeer a break by using the USPS.

    That dress is lovely - I can see why you couldn't give it up!

  11. Wow this dress is gorgeous on both. What a classic! What a great find as I know that her pieces can be rather pricey. Nora, conservatively sexy, where are your librarian glasses? Looks beautifil the way you have styled it. Megan, va va voom. Beautiful with the vintage vest and you KNOW I LOVE THAT BOW!! Have a great day lovely birds. Dawn Suitcase Vignettes xo

  12. I think stealing that dress from your shop was the right decision. It is too cute to sell!

  13. What a gorgeous dress! I love it by itself so you can see the cool scalloped neckline, but man is that vest awesome too!

  14. the scallop detailing on the collar, with the cuff slits, & buttons make it a unique LBD. i can see why you'd want it for yourself. funny wannabee santa story.

  15. the dress is beautiful, the long sleeves and the collar. I can understand why you snagged it.
