Morton Salt Girl
I've mentioned the Morton Salt Girl before (pretty much whenever I talk about yellow dresses)--& I've wanted to take photos dressed like her for ages. When I got this dress in the mail yesterday from Shop Tacky & it was a bit short for my 5'6" frame, I realized that it's an ideal Morton Salt Girl-length!
I really love this dress. Actually unbelievably so. I usually have a whole host of issues with ready-to-wear clothing, but this dress, once I took out the bubble hem to give it 3 extra inches, fits perfectly, is super comfy & light for summer, & is just generally adorable. Isn't the embroidery the perfect touch? My mom has an embroidery machine; I should look into drawing some designs to put on fabric to make dresses equally lovely!
