I live the dream, singing and writing songs in Nashville. My favorite things (besides music) are thrifting, DIY projects, wine, puppies, and anything vintage.

Before my last album photoshoot, I went shopping to pick up a few extra options.  Loving vintage pieces so much, I knew I wanted the majority of the outfits to be vintage and I didn't know how many the stylist would be bringing. 

I wandered into one of my favorite music stores in East Nashville, Fanny's House of Music. Not only do they sell super cool gear, new AND old, but they have a killer clothing section.  I've found really cute things there before but this dress was like hitting the jackpot. It exactly what i was looking for and it fit me like a glove, which is rare when shopping vintage!

I later also wore this dress in the music video for "Get Drunk and Cry". It was absolutely perfect for the vibe for shooting at my fav bar, American Legion Post 82 in Inglewood. I also styled my band so we all matched, how stinking precious do they look!!!! 😍  😍  😍

This is one of those dresses that I will never get rid of. This one's getting passed down for sure.  Have you ever found a vintage piece that was love at first sight?

All my 💖,

Ruthie
