saturday night + some stuff.

Just some silly party pictures from a friend's birthday the other night.
And of course, a family portrait style picture.
The birthday girl asked everyone to dress fancy, so I wore just about what I would wear any other day (a dress and tights) plus some heels. 

I have been caring for a sick boyfriend these last few days and now I'm just really hoping I don't get his illness! I always make lists and plan everything out, but lately other things keep getting in the way. Maybe I should just start accepting this instead of getting frustrated/annoyed that I cannot complete a million things every week..? Eh, that probably won't happen.

I'm going to try my hardest to not let anything get in my way and make it all the way through today's to do list. Thrifting, cleaning, picture taking and some new listings coming up this afternoon! Wish me luck!

Some newish items in the shop. Some have been added in the last week or so and some will be added in the next couple of days. There are some great treasures in this batch, have you seen that giraffe shirt? It looks like some crazy swirly design from further away, but then at a closer looks it's a bunch of giraffes! There is also a recurring theme of babydoll dresses, drop waists and a bunch of pretty cute tops. Check 'em out!

stuff & things vol. 6

This week's edition starts off with the perfect shoe. Look at all of those! While I probably won't ever be spending that much for a real pair of Swedish Hasbeens, I hope to get a pair of knockoffs this Spring!

This adorable little picnic in a suitcase is pretty perfect.
This funny cat picture with cat wallpaper! What?!
This neat tote bag with the ingredients for guacamole.
I know I've been talking about pastels all week, but this pretty dress definitely deserved a shout out!  
And finally, even though I didn't see many of the nominated movies I'm really looking forward to watching the Oscars on Sunday!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Well, treasuries, to be exact, but they are all filled with some pretty neat pastel themed treasures! Two pairs of shoes from my shop have been featured in all of these dreamy collections.

I just can't wait!

Seriously, I cannot wait for Spring! I am so ready for bare arms, bare legs, bike rides, cute shoes, lots of sunlight, tons of pastels and a million other wonderful things! 

What are you looking forward to?

Dear Photograph,

Dear Photograph is another really neat tumblr. It's filled with really great photos, sweet notes and some sad stories. Looking thorough all of these images makes me want to recreate some pictures from my own past.

stuff & things vol. 5

So, another week has come and gone already? Ridiculous.
After seeing this dreamy image I definitely have some plans for my Valentine's Day flowers in the next few days.
I saw these nails last week on Pinterest and thought they were adorable. I already had a clear matte nail polish, so I tried it out with a more orangey coral color. Now I kind of want to add that matte topcoat to every color!
I'm happy to see that Mandi is back to blogging! She is one of my very favorite bloggers and I can't wait to see what she does with that cute new house of hers!
This adorable old bike makes me even more excited for warm weather and breaking out my own bike. Come on Spring!
Kaelah just moved too and I am so jealous of all the peeks she's shared so far. Look at that closet! I can't wait to see the rest.
And finally, if you haven't already, be sure to enter my giveaway to celebrate MFV's second birthday!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

what i wore.

Yesterday upon getting ready for work I knew I wanted to dress for Valentine's Day and wear some red or pink. Then I realized that I don't have any red or pink dresses. So, I ran into my office/studio/shop room (whatever) and grabbed this dress. It's one that had been in the shop before and hadn't sold. I had planned on taking the sleeves off, but hadn't gotten around to it yet. So a quick fix, I cut the sleeves right off, threw on a red cardigan and was ready and festive!

I came home from work to Rickey, some flowers and some chocolate. We went out to dinner and headed home for dessert and some Netflix. Now that he's working all the time it was really nice to just have a little date night.

Outfit Details
Dress & Cardigan: Thrifted
Black flats: Ebay

P.S. There is something fun coming up over here tomorrow! Make sure you stop by!

happy valentine's day


Happy Valentine's Day!
Somehow Rickey managed to be off work tonight. So as soon as I'm off work we'll be off to do some Valentine's celebrating doing I don't know what, but I'm excited! I hope you all have a lovely day!

stuff & things vol. 4

James shared her wedding photos. Wow! Be ready to have your mind blown if you haven't seen them already.
I know I've seen a few cute painted jar DIYs around Pinterest and I think I'll have to give it a try soon. I mean, what else are we going to do with the 20 jars we already have saved? Why not just make them cute, right?

Wes Anderson slow motion shots set to Ja Rule songs. What?! My friend Lindsey posted this video on my wall yesterday. It's pretty funny if you're a Wes Anderson fan. I really love the Max Fischer scenes the best.
I also really liked this cute and clever print found over at design love fest.
Both Dr. Dog and Ben Kweller's new albums came this week!

And finally, Amy is celebrating Self Love Month with some really great and inspirational stuff going on over at her blog. Go check it out!

I am so excited that the weekend is finally/already here!
I hope you all enjoy your weekend!

One of the few things that I dislike about our apartment is that there is no overhead lighting in the living room. Having a lamp in the corner gives off an orangey glow in pictures and then editing them just makes them look a little funny. But it's okay, not that big of a deal.

Even though this shirt looks light blue it's actually green and white striped. And it is just the kind of shirt that I will grab almost anytime I see one in a thrift store... which is every time I go. Button down shirts like these are what I usually live in during the Summer. They go perfectly with a skirt, some high waisted shorts, jeans, tied up over a dress, there are so many possibilities! And they're even better when you roll up the sleeves! Wearing this one makes me that much more anxious for Spring to get here already.

If you've been here before then you've probably already seen this skirt. And the shoes too! I'm sure I'll throw on my trusty rust colored cardigan (which has made a few appearances) to head to work in just a bit.

What are some of your favorite pieces to wear over and over?
