During our time in Dubrovnik, we took a side-trip to Montenegro, which is just over the Croatian border (for you James Bond fans, this is where Casino Royale took place).

Don’t the ladies all look lovely!?), because though the organizers requested… Continue reading Vintage Saturday: What I would’ve worn to the Fur & Feathers Luncheon
Here’s to the weekend, readers! My original plan for today was to head down to Portland for the Fur and Feathers Luncheon Julie of Fab Gabs is hosting.
