Green in Greenwich || 1950's with UV

Welcome to historic Greenwich Village!  Stepping through the quiet, quaint neighborhood streets, it's easy to forget you're still in one of the most bustling cities in the world!  This entire area is registered as a landmark, and each home still displays the character of it's long past life.  To top it off one of my favorite film directors, Alfred Hitchcock, found inspiration here for one of my favorite movies: Rear Window.  It was an exciting moment to visit the iconic setting that inspired the set.

For such a charming neighborhood, my Unique Vintage polka dot day dress paired perfectly.  It was refreshing to find this very nostalgic frock, with functioning button holes, adorable pockets, and made of such an airy cotton... perfect for our NYC heat!  I styled "Hedda" with a vintage basket bag to match her wooden buttons, and added a petticoat - but this beauty looks perfect with or without.
