reading while eating

I can't quite recall what led met to Reading While Eating: The Photography of Juliette Tang, but I had it bookmarked and am glad I did. These are some lovely images.

new goods.

Just wanted to stop by and share the couple new items in the shop this week. A few old listings, a few not yet listed, but mostly fresh new goods already hanging out in the shop!

I just wish those blue sandals fit me! I think they are the comfiest thing I have set my foot upon (since they're not big enough to put my foot inside)!

behind the scenes

W Magazine just released some behind the scenes photos for Moonrise Kingdom. I had kind of forgotten about its May 25th release date since it snuck up so crazy fast (um, it's almost the end of May! What?!). Well, turns out it is a limited release and isn't playing anywhere near me. It'll be another whole month until the full release (June 29th), but I'm sure it will be here in no time!

Also, here's a funny tour/interview with the great Bill Murray.

more treasures

Oh, hey, it's been a while. After an unintended week away from the blog I hope to be back for good. I just can't believe how crazy busy life has been lately! Here's hoping things slow down a little bit!

I got a Wacom tablet a couple of weeks ago and this was my first attempt at using it. It's pretty fun to use, but it'll take a little bit of getting used to. I'm pretty excited about it! What's new with you?!

dear creatures

How is it possible that Fall/Winter collection lookbooks are already being released?!
It's crazy, but I don't think you can really mind all that much when they're this cute!

new hair & repeat pieces

I mentioned the other day that I dyed my hair. Well, here are the results, except that it's a little bit lighter in real life. It's kind of a mix of blonde, brown, yellow and orange, but it's really been growing on me this past week.

I wore this outfit the other night just hanging out with some friends. I just keep wearing this skirt, I really need to find a similar one that isn't corduroy! This is probably the 10th time it has popped up in an outfit post! Whoops! And this crop top is a piece that expired in my shop. I tried it out and kinda liked it. Who knows, maybe it'll go back into the shop, or maybe it'll just stay in my closet. 
This week has totally thrown me off. I've been working overnight, sleeping all day and then being lazy for the couple hours I have between waking up and going back in to work. But it's finally over now and I couldn't be happier! Back to regular, structured life! I hope you all have a great weekend! I know I'll be enjoying what feels like the first time off I've had in weeks!

in MFV

It makes me so happy to see a customer enjoying something they bought (or in this case won) from my shop! Geena Rose just featured her new dress on her blog. How cute is she?! You can see more of it over at her blog.

You can also see some other girls looking cute in Maggie's Farm Vintage.

 If anyone else has any photos in MFV I'd love to see/share them.

So, send them my way!

costume change

My days off work usually consist of several costume changes. I think I just get wrapped up in everything when I'm sewing and trying things on and checking them out. It's kind of ridiculous how many times I change outfits! Is anyone else guilty of this?!

But really, a costume is really kind of what this outfit feels like to me. It looks a lot more grungy than it felt at the time! I have had that sweater for years and I don't think I've worn it once! I've also had the shorts for forever and have almost worn them to their death. And then, I finally gave the sheer top (with only a bra) a try and I think I liked it..? I guess I was feeling a little daring with this look. But I only ran to Target to grab some hair dye (I'll share the results soon, if you haven't seen them on instagram) while wearing it.

stuff & things vol. 12

Fake house hunting is probably one of my favorite time-sucking things to do online. I found a few really great places recently. Including this one that not only looks really nice, but is a lot cheaper than our place. Bummer!
This is really cool!
The fact that Maggie's Farm is at 299 sales! Sale 300 gets a special gift! Who is it going to be?! :)
 So, How I Met Your Mother is one of the greatest shows ever, right?! I've been re-watching the whole series on Netflix these last few weeks and no matter how many times I see each episode they'll always be hilarious! 
I totally got sucked into Handmade Ryan Gosling once again last night. He's just so sweet and understanding. :)
I had to include this after cracking up when I saw it on Kaelah's blog!

I hope you all have a great weekend!!

Shop Spotlight

Atomic Attic is a really neat Etsy shop that has not only some really great vintage housewares, but probably THE coolest pet beds ever! See for yourself!
See what I mean?!

It's been quite a while since I've done a Shop Spotlight post, but you can see the others I've featured here!

like a glove

This is my perfect dress. It fits like a glove. I thought it was pretty great when I thrifted it at least a year ago. Then, I thought it was really great whenever I shortened it. But now, I think it's the greatest after I took off the pouffy sleeves a couple of weeks ago! I kind of want to wear it everyday. What is your perfect piece?
And then the shoes, I've been dreaming of some of these shoes (any kind of clog sandal really) for so long now and I finally went for it a few weeks ago. So glad I did! I know they will get a lot of wear this Summer!
Speaking of Summer -- does it feel like Summer where you are?! It was 90-something degrees when we took these pictures, it's been crazy!

confetti garden

Confetti Garden is a tumblr filled with hazy, dreamy, pretty pictures. Whether it's pretty flowers, pretty clothes, or pretty girls it's always a nice place for some good eye candy.
 See what I mean?
