I’m getting into a crunch point for the things I need to do in a short period, but I have such great things to look forward to that I’m not stressing too much. Mostly. Taking a break from sewing though, but considering I made three dresses in a week and a half I think I’ll be okay 😉 . . . #harwoodsteiger #saguarolake #arizona #phoenix #desertgirl #cactusobsessed #1950s #vintagestyle #seamstress #memade
I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of seeing Chihuly. I get so excited when I recognize his artwork in places I wasn’t expecting 🌵 . . . #phoenixbotanicalgardens #chihuly #phoenix #botanicalgardens #cacti #desertlandscape #desert #cactus #glassart
This is just one of the best Veteran’s Day weekends: getting to spend it with someone special, enjoying my time off. Also, can we take a moment to appreciate this beautiful outfit @tina_vines helped me create?! Swipe to see my original vintage inspiration 🌵 . . . #phoenixbotanicalgardens #cactus #vintagelover #1950s #vintageinspired #amateurseamstress #homesewn #cactusobsessed #tinavines #chainstitch #truevintageootd
The light was so insanely beautiful this morning. How can people say that nothing grows in a desert? 🧐 . . . #tucson #arizona #morning #morninglight #nofilter #landscape #plants #outwest #desert #desertflora
It’s Monday! Back to your regularly scheduled desert themed outfits. Also, I can’t figure out how to do the strap on the dress I’m sewing and it’s driving me batty! UPDATE: I figured out what I did and it’s so obvious. Never do late night sewing, y’all, it’s when you make stupid mistakes 😒 . . . #vintageootd #vintagelover #desert #catalinamountains #tucson #arizona #arizonababe #cactuslover #1950s #mickeymouse #minnetonka #moccasins #1950sskirt #johnwolf #scenicprint
My next Harwood Steiger creation is well underway! I want to be able to wear it to Saguaro Lake 🌵 . . . #harwoodsteiger #cactus #saguaro #vintagefabric #vintage #cactuslover #cactus #cacti #cactusobsessed #dressmaker #amateurseamstress
Since I’m working tonight, this feels like an appropriate throwback. Happy Halloween everyone! 🎃🍁 . . . #halloween #orange #pumpkins #vintagestyle #vixenbymichelinepitt #vixenstyle #1950sstyle #50s #happyhalloween
These flowers are luminous! Does anyone know what they are? 🌸 . . . #tucsonbotanicalgardens #botanicalgardens #tucson #arizona #flower #blooming
Don’t mind me, I’m just over here pretending I’m allowed to wear real shoes 😂 (don’t worry, my boot went back on right after this pic) 🎃 . . . #truevintageootd #botanicalgardens #tucson #october #1950s #vintagelover #pumpkins #halloweenspirit #orange #ghostpumpkin #orangedress
I get itchy feet if I live somewhere for too long. But surprisingly, that hasn’t been a problem here. Out west is home 🌵 . . . #painteddesert #newmexico #petrifiedforestnationalpark #petrifiedforest #desert #nationalpark #western #outwest #arizona #westernlandscape
Feeling the need to make a return trip to Santa Fe sometime soon. Also, side note: if I had a little house you can bet I’d love to put this in the front yard with a bunch of real cacti around it 😍🌵 . . . #santafe #horrockses #espadrilles #newmexico #vintagestyle #lovevintage #1950s #1950sdress #horrocksesdress #vintagebabe #desertgirl #cactuslover
For as much as I find Vegas over the top and gaudy, they do have remarkable taste in shoes. I’d wear these if I could! 👠 . . . #lasvegas #nevada #highheel #shoe #shoesign #neonlights #vegasstyle
Seeing the Harwood Steiger exhibit made me so incredibly happy. He (and his wife) deserve recognition for their amazing art! 🌵 . . . #harwoodsteiger #tucsonmodernismweek #vintagestyle #amateurseamstress #b5882 #butterick #gertiepatterns #vogue1172 #arizonagirl #tucson
Apple trees and roses should always grow together 🍎🌹 . . . #fall #autumn #orchard #appleorchard #apples #roses #blueskies
Fall means apple cider to me, and black tea with cinnamon and cloves. And being curled up in bed with a good book 🍁 . . . #vintage #truevintageootd #fallstyle #fallootd #autumn #vintagedress #1950s #swedishhasbeens #throwback
This is, quite possibly, the coolest sign I’ve ever seen. I love that there are neon flowers 🌵 . . . #neonmuseum #yucca #desertstyle #desert #lasvegas #nevada #yuccaflower
I’m super hopeful today will be the day they let me at the very least start standing on my ankle again. And maybe if I’m really lucky I can start walking! 🤞 . . . #truevintageootd #vintagestyle #neonmuseum #rainbow #lasvegas #vintage #1950s #fracturedankle #converse #nevada #western #westernstyle #vintagewestern #saguaro
This is my absolute favorite print from the Steiger exhibit for Tucson modernism week. I wish I had some so I could make a dress out of it! 😍 . . . #tucsonmodernismweek #harwoodsteiger #arizona #saguaro #tucson #arizonaartist #cactusobsessed #cactusflower
