Vintage Outfit Post-Indian Summer

Technically, at least according to the Old Farmer's almanac, Indian Summer can only occur between the dates of November 11 and November 20th and is marked by warm, windless days with a hazy or smoky atmosphere, and these days must follow a cold frost.   Indian summer is fleeting and rare and therefor precious.   The colors on the dress in today's outfit post remind me of the most beautiful Indian Summer's in my memory, all hazy and golden.   The dress is from Revamp Vintage, I scored during their early summer sale at a very good price.  Revamp makes clothes for theatre and tv productions and every day vintage afficianados alike and there attention to detail is impressive.  Their clothes are extremely historically accurate, and unlike most repro companies they don't focus only on the later vintage decades, the 1940s and 50s, but include many items from the 1900s through the 1930s.  My dress is a copy of a 1920s cotton lawn dress and it reminds me of the robe style looks popular in the twenties.  The beautiful hair clip is from chatter blossom and she made it with vintage flowers in the same colors as the dress.

Revamp has great customer service and for no additional fee they shortened the dress so I wouldn't have to have a tailor alter the complicated hem.  I'm certainly hoping that there will be some warm days in late Autumn so I can wear this dress to walk through the leaves.
