check me out: dressed for Oktoberfest

The Oktoberfest in Frankenmuth, Michigan (aka Funtown, USA) was completely outta pocket! I had bought this beautifully made vintage bustier drindl with flourescent pink flowers of love from my friend Jen’s amazing store, Thunderhorse Vintage (17th & L in back of Bows & Arrows, Sacramento) for the occasion, but I was pretty sure the corseting wasn’t going to allow me more than a couple of Hof Braus. Not only did it last me through innumerable beers, it also held out through 2 brauts with extra kraut, a bavarian pretzel draped in dijon, table-top polka dancing with my good friend Andrea, a nap on the river bank, and all kinds of photo-op antics.

Look at these lovely vintage filigree bird earrings and the silly little ruffles!! Heaven.

Man, I’m having a hard time trying to think of another non-Bavaria-centric occasion I could wear this to. Can you?
