    The County Fair

    More than just prize heifers, cotton candy and ferris wheels, an old-time US county fair could be expected to bring out the denim, bandana prints, wide-brim sun hats, gingham checks, sundresses, wicker bags, and other fun, Americana-inspired casual wear.

    Ride the ferris wheel in vintage style with help from the VFG.

    It is pretty great, isn't it? The name of the print, “Carnival” is inside the hem.
