Photobooths and Sailor Hats

I went to town to meet up with fellow blogger and vintage lover, Miss Kitty Boo, the other day and had a very lovely time. I wore this new-to-me 1950s dress that I got from Betty Jane Boutique, which now has a physical shop, which you can read about on the site.

As you can see we had fun playing in the photobooth. I love photobooths (and that there is still one pretty close to me) but I haven't taken many photos in them over the years. I think I may have to start taking more from now on!

I was going to wear one of my new hats but then I saw my sailor hat sitting on my hat shelf and thought '...why not?' I've only actually worn it once before and that was as part of a costume! I thought it suited the dress rather well. I only wish I'd got a picture of the dress without the cardigan (which has nothing to do with the hat) - never mind. I shall just have to take more photos the next time I wear it.

I love the shot in the top left corner - we had no idea the flash was going to go off which is why we were caught looking so serious. 

Love,

  3. There's nothing like the spontaneous and retro look of photo-booth photos!

    Betty Jane Boutique looks fabulous - I am originally from Adelaide so I must tell all my vintage loving friends about it and visit it when I pop home next.

    Loving your sailor hat too!

  11. I love the sailor hat being worn out and not just as a costume! I've got one as well...if I can whip up something to secure a pin to so it stays on my head, I can follow your lead!
