I really felt like I was traveling back in time reading your post. You look so pretty in this dress. It fits you so well. I also did notice a bit of unevenness in the hem but I thought it might just be me:) But, I guess this adds to the charm of the piece:) You really brought to life this dress and really embodied with the sisterhood of the vintage dress is all about. I also very much enjoyed seeing your farm and seeing how you incorporated your history into this dress. Everything is so well done! Your niece is so cute! What great pictures and you accessorized this dress beautifully:) Thank you for participating and getting this dress on to a great start!!!

Oh how exciting to see the first stop on the voyage! I really like how you used brown accessories with the yellow and purple in the dress-that wouldn't have been obvious to me at all. You really captured the look of era with the hat, gloves, and those beautiful shoes. The dress doesn't look snug at all (from this side of the computer screen)rather it appears to fit you nicely.

Your farm is beautiful, and that barn is breathtaking. Maintaining barns and outbuildings is a huge job, but then you get to have the world's best backdrop for photographs ;)

I just love it. All of it!

What a lovely first stop for the dress! I love the way you've styled it, especially the hat. And your farm is stunning and provides such a great photo story backdrop :)

How incredibly lovely! I adore how you styled this dress for its first stop on its worldwide tour. That hat is strikingly gorgeous! Beautiful accessorizing, dear gal - this whole look is timelessly magnificent.

Wow! What a fabulous photo shoot to kick off the Sisterhood of the Travelling Dress. I will be scouting locations while I excitedly await arrival of The Dress.......


Aw, thanks for all the sweet comments! It was a lot of fun and I'm anxious to see what everyone else does with the dress.

Your styling of the Travelling Dress is lovely! Your niece is super cute as well, she looks very sweet in her little 40s outfit.

Beautiful job styling this dress! I love all the pictures from around the farm. :) The traveling dress comes to me in October and I'm really hoping we have some fall foliage left here in VT. The leaves are starting to turn already!


I love your opening image with the dress laid out on that gorgeous patchwork quilt. I think you have styled this dress in such a great way, I like how you got round the issue of the low neck by making a brooch. Your farm looks amazing.

You did such an amazing job styling and writing about the dress. I love this post! The dress looks, and you sound, so sweet and classy. I can't wait to get my hands on it, although I can only hope I live up to posts like yours.

Hi! You look so lovely in the Traveling Dress! And the farm is absolutely beautiful. I have been ill, so I've missed all the stops the dress has made so far; it's fun catching up and seeing the dress on it's journey!
