I bought this yellow 60’s Evelyn Pearson dress at St. Luke’s Thrift shop, in the West Village, in NYC, when they were having a sale last summer. I liked the bright, sunny yellow cotton fabric and the pretty Oriental knots on the shoulder. At first I could not quite figure it what to wear it with. In time I came across the Oscar De la Renta silk scarf that I wear it with in this post. The colors go with it very well. Also, this summer I bought the cardigan in this post at Uniqlo and I like the soft shade of beige with it. When I first tried to do a post with this dress my daughter thought the outfit needed more to look complete. Once I found the scarf and sweater I started wearing this dress a lot more. It is very comfortable. It is referred to on the tag as “Lounge Wear.” I am perfectly content to wear it out as a dress. I like to wear it with my John Fluevog shoes that I also found at the same thrift shop. They have a bit of a twenties look with their multiple straps of closure.
I took these pictures with a tripod up in Mount Kisco, NY one day when I was up there. The creek that runs through the downtown area is very pretty. Right now they are doing work on the area surrounding the creek so not as many ducks as usual are in the downtown area. They are most likely further up the road. The old Stone clock structure is near the train station for the Metro North train. Mount Kisco, NY and that whole are is lovely.
This is a brief post since my schedule has been hectic. I figured it is better to do a brief post rather than none. I still am commuting over two hours a day during the week; which is why I decided to take the camera and tripod with me sometimes. Well I hope you are enjoying the rest of summer. I have been bike riding when I can or kayaking in the Hudson River.
