I wore a vintage slip as a tea dress to brunch with friends!:D
Slip as dress: Vanity Fair (thrifted)
Cardigan: Alternative Apparel (thrifted)
Hat: unlabeled (thrifted)
Sandals: Born (gift from Cathy)
I had a lovely time and I felt very feminine until my mother pointed out that the slip is somewhat sheer and that you can see my underwear. Sigh. Back to the drawing board.
I have a cropped wool sweater I wanted to use, but it's a) in storage with most of my things, and b) too warm for SoCal weather yet, so Alternative Apparel thin cardigan thingy it was!
I cannot help but notice no one else down here wears hats. I was pleased with my choice because the veil shaded my eyes while we were chatting outside the restaurant, but I stand out quite a bit.

I really like brunch because I hate mornings and it's a chance for night owls like me to eat breakfast foods at a reasonable hour, and wash it all down with cocktails in a socially acceptable context.
Lately, I've heard a backlash against brunch (specifically in dense urban areas like NY and SF) from folks who think it's part of the eternally childish and irresponsible privileged culture of today's middle class youth. I didn't realize it was an issue. Of course, if you asked my family to describe me, "eternally childish and irresponsible" would sum it up very nicely, hah. How do you feel about brunch?
This outfit may not have turned out as I wished, but I'm linking up with the lovely Judith of Style Crone's Hat Attack! I've missed participating. :D
