70′s Luau Wedding

Ross’s cousin got married last weekend, so that meant the D family needed to get a little spiffed up for the occasion. I had plans to wear a dress already in my closet, but when I was in Little Ghost Vintage helping Turtle Love Co shoot some vintage engagement rings, I spotted something I knew I couldn’t walk away from. 1970′s, navy blue, maxi, flutter sleeves – suh-weet!

Dress: vintage via Little Ghost Vintage
Teal clutch: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Yellow hair feather: Ce Jaune

Ross said I looked like I was going to the beach in the 70′s. “PERFECT!” I exclaimed. “I’m going for 70′s Luau Wedding.” Ross was then quiet.

I wore this feathered hairpiece for my own wedding reception (photos here), just over a year ago. Time flies!

This is also the blog’s first introduction to my new hair. You see, I had been rocking an unintentional ombre look for some time (aka roots). So when it occurred to me that I needed to get a hair cut I knew I would have to cut out my blonde ends. I didn’t wanna! So, I had my hair stylist (Thomas at Salone Burke, love him) add some more in. No one seems to notice it but me, but I like it. I quite enjoy the duality between blonde and brunette, thank you very much.

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.

  9. She’ll deny it, but I am pretty sure a frying pan flew past my head. All blacked out components by having an elongated thick tube steel frame choose this bike not just a comfortable ride but a beauty to consider it. It’s
    worth the cost to shop around to get a good deal
    on these, but expect to pay what they’re worth.
