Diners, Knotted Legs & A Hawaiin Dresses






the bf took me to some lovely 50s diners in the city of tacoma ... frisko freeze was opened in 1950 and has delicious fish burgers and fries ... shake shake shake is another diner designed in a fun retro style. sadly we didn't had anything there, because we were still full from the burgers at frisko's. i'm wearing a newly thrifted original hawaiin dress. it's not 'super vintage' but vintage and perfect for traveling ('super vintage' is my new fave saying. i heard it said by sellers in several stores now ...).
in tacoma we found a total amazing vintage fashion shop named glenna's clothing. sadly the owner had to close to pick up a friend from the airport, so i wasn't able to try on some of her fabulous dresses and skirts from the 50s or even to shoot some pictures. all pieces seemed to be in almost perfect conditions but highly priced (but we all know: super vintage + great condition = expensive). hopefully we go back there ... i already fell in love with some of her cotton day dresses and a light blue vichy/gingham skirt.
by the way ... what happened to my legs on these pictures? the left leg wants to be a right leg ... the right wants to be a left leg?
in two days i will be an almost married woman by that time ... so exciting!

What beautiful pictures. You look amazing in that dress! So sad that there aren't any Diners like that here in Europe.
And I wish you all the best for your upcoming wedding!

Oooh, love the term "super vintage". I think it's really handy way to designate the pre-1960s vintage from clothing from more recent eras which nowadays seems to fall under the banner heading of vintage, too. I'm not sure if that's how the sellers you encountered were using it, but that's how I would use it.

What a fun, cheerful dress - I have a 1980s does 50s Hawaiian print in a very similar colour palette and floral pattern, too.

Happiest countdown to your wedding, honey!
