shop update

I had totally planned on an outfit post for today, but unfortunately Saturday's insane weather decided otherwise. Rickey and I were on our way to the zoo when it started storming, so we turned around and came home instead. We went out a little bit later thinking we'd take some quick pictures before heading to a movie, but then ended up cutting it too close. While we were in the movie (The Five Year Engagement, which was really really great) it started hailing, in-theater sirens went off, we almost evacuated the theater, were told to sit back down and they finally resumed the movie. It was a pretty scary experience, not really knowing what was going on outside. Did anyone else have crazy storms?

All of that aside, these are the goodies that will be heading into the shop this week! I was tempted to keep almost all of these, but I guess I'll share and offer them up to everyone else! :)

stuff & things vol. 11

I've had my eye on this cat tote, but I just can't decide, there are way too many cute tote bags out there!
WOW! That couch. I need it, or one like it!
Next weekend Rickey and I are heading all the way down to Houston to get my new car. Anyone know of some good things to do there? Good stuff to do/see/eat?
I am really loving this dress! Stripes are one of those things that I haven't been too into until sort of recently. Now, most of the dresses that catch my eye (and come home with me) have been striped!
I've really been itching for my next tattoo, but there are SO many pretty vintage florals out there! How will I ever choose?!

There is currently a Maggie's Farm giveaway going on over at Tick Tock Vintage. Head on over and win some free stuff!
Did anyone catch last night's live episode of 30 Rock? There were so many awesome cameos! So funny!
Wasn't TGIF like the greatest thing ever?! 
But really, TGIF! I feel like I've been waiting for the weekend for so long. 

Even though our trip got moved to next week I am really, really looking forward to still having the weekend off!

Do you have any fun weekend plans?

Color Stories

Orange is one of those colors that I feel is a little bit tougher to wear, for me at least. I have one orange shirt and I think that's probably it. If I had the chance/money I think I'd wear any of these though!

Do yo have any certain colors that you find hard to wear?

off time

It's been pretty rare lately that Rickey and I have a whole lot of time off of work together. Our work schedules are kind of backwards, but this week I've been working some overnight shifts, so we've matched up a little bit. The other day we finished up all of our tax business, grabbed some lunch and took it to the park, looked at some dogs at the Humane Society and went grocery shopping all before I headed back into work later that night. We managed to get a few quick outfit shots even though the wind was shooting right at me.

Over the weekend I decided to finally dedicate a day off to working on my 'stuff to work on' pile. Those days are almost always hit or miss. Either just about everything will turn out pretty great or I'll end up messing a bunch of things up. Luckily this was one of those good days, actually a really great day! I fixed up so many things that had been waiting around for so long. A lot more of them went into my own closet than (will be going) into the shop, but I'm so happy to finally have made some progress on it! Including this skirt and the perfect fitting dress minus its funny puffy sleeves! I just want to wear the dress everyday now!

polka party

 I know I've shared my love for polka dots here before, but as I was reorganizing my rack of clothes for my shop the other day I noticed just how much of those wonderful polka dots I wasn't keeping for myself and passing on to some other vintage loving ladies instead. A lot more than I had realized!

easter sunday

 This is what I wore on Easter Sunday. We managed to snap a few pictures of my outfit outside as I was running out the door to my Mom's house. So, that explains the not so great shots. I asked Rickey to get some pictures of my shoes since I hadn't shared them yet, but his shadow was in every picture! Haha, better luck next time hopefully. 

The shoes though. I fell for these Seychelles and hunted down a pair on ebay last year. Turns out that this off white color is pretty tricky to wear, for me at least, they just blend in with my pasty white legs. But I decided that Easter would be a good day to try them out! And the dress is one from my shop that hadn't sold. I decided to try it on the other day and I really like it! 

I hope you all had a nice Easter!

stuff & things vol. 10

This week's installment might as well be named 'things I want this week.' But that's a-okay with me. All I'm doing is window shopping and lots of money-saving (because there's hopefully a new(ish) car in my future).
Vanessa of The Velvet Bird released her perfect new collection earlier this week. I really kind of want every single thing she has in her shop.
These Leah Goren iPhone cases are great, especially the floral and the cats!
 Summerland's 2012 Spring lookbook was also recently released. I would love anything and everything I see in these dreamy photos!

I don't know what it is about me and tan polka dots lately, but this top definitely satisfies that love.

bits & pieces

Today has been a very busy, very productive day. I cleaned and organized some things in my office, did dishes, got some pretty tape in the mail, took shop photos, rearranged our bedroom, hung new artwork and new curtains too. 

And now it's time for editing photos, making some lists and maybe even some sewing too.

Whew! What a busy day! Are your days off of work this busy too?
