Ticket To Ride

unique vintage circus print dress

Circuses, carnivals, festivals – I love them all. So when Unique Vintage launched an entire collection devoted to life under the big top, I had a tough time limiting myself to just one piece. They designed a three-ring circus skirt with a functioning stage curtain, for goodness sakes! But this ticket print Billie swing dress was the clear winner for me. As a performer myself, how could I say no?

I ordered up in this dress after Ashley told me that her normal size in it was teeny-tiny. But actually, this size is a bit too big on me! I was worried about not having enough room in the bust, but I had to tie it as tight as it could go – and there was still extra fabric along the back. Fortunately, the straps are designed to be adjusted (the fabric bow is the end of the straps), so it's an easy fix. I really love this style overall, with its zip-up bodice and roomy pockets. Plus, it's super comfy and lightweight, making it perfect for summertime.

I have to thank my fantastic photographer, Emma Rizzo, for these shots. All of the photos in this post were taken by her. I really hate taking photos in public under normal circumstances, and having to lug around my tripod and not get in everyone's way would have been really difficult and embarrassing for me. Not only did she save the day by coming with me, but her photos made both me and a rather underwhelming local carnival look our best. And I felt so special having a photog with me! If you're in the area and need a photo session, get in touch with her!

Thanks so much to everyone who placed in order in my Shop My Closet store last week! There's still a ton of great stuff left. I'll be out of town for most of next week, so if you've got your eye on something, now's a good time to grab it! 

Have a great Wednesday!


  1. Ummm yeah ok so I am super jealous of these photos. I have always wanted to take blog photos at a carnival, planned to in June, but then got into my accident and that de-railed my plans and I missed the carnival and my opportunity. Still have to find a local carnival to snap photos at!

    My drama aside, these photos ROCK! And hello, beautiful smile! You look fantastic in these photos and the outfit was definitely made to be worn and photographed here!
