Zip Me Up!

Dear Friends,

This darling, zip up the front, 1950's number is one I have had for a while. {I wore it in my music video for my song Willie.} The fabric is almost like a thin canvas, or a thick linen and the dress features two large pockets with strawberry appliques as well as a front tie at the waist. I bought it for $25 at a vintage store in Williamsburg, Brooklyn when I was living in NYC and teaching at a high school in the neighborhood.

I think of it as a summer staple, but last month, my band-mate Todd Grebe, was playing Music City Roots with his Honky-Tonk band and I needed something to wear. So, I gave it a little fall flare by pairing it with pearls and riding boots. It was a surprisingly cool night and threatening rain so I tucked a little blue and white polka-dotted hanky in my pocket and grabbed my trench coat and headed out to the show...(Which was fantastic!)
