If I Were a 50s Housewife

I'd wear this dress.
These earrings.
Bake a casserole in these dishes.
And invite you all over to watch The Price is Right.

PS: I kinda want that dress. You?

The dress is really pretty, love the belt and the full skirt:)

That dress is really cute. While you're planning your party, just keep in mind that I require 24 hours notice, so I can sleep on my curlers the night before for just the right amount of bounce.

my mom actually has that top dress and wore it over the 4th of july weekend.

it's perfection in person and the etsy seller was a dream to work with.

Wow, I love the dress and the bowls. It's so fun to think about what our lives would have been like in another era.

I really want that dress even though it is not my style at all. Here's where I would wear it: around the house to make my daughter smile, to a picnic in the park, or to Sunday brunch. And those dishes are a great find.
