Shop Update

DSC_1515DSC_15361960s Purple Plaid Pinafore/Jumper (S/M)

It has been a good while since I have done a shop update. I’m still working out the kinks in my new apartment for shop photos (lighting, location), but that will come with time. It started out nice and bright, and then some really weird shadows started happening nearing the end. I’ve just got to find the perfect hour when the sun is flowing through the windows and my body isn’t making weird Peter Pan shadows on the wall.

Anyways, the shop update! I’ve got three – quite lovely – pinafores/jumpers (whatever you would like to call them) listed. They are excellent layering pieces and the type of item that’s fun to have in your closet because they are so versatile. I’ve got quite a few of my own, as you probably already know. There is a sweet mini skirt as well, that if it fit me, I would have kept it. And the blouse I paired it with is also for sale…I think they go quite nicely together, to be honest. The black slinky dress is such a fun one, but hard to photograph (I hate photographing black). It’s hard to see, but it has a weaved waffle detailing on the bust and sleeves – upping the little black dress game. And last but not least, the camel wool skirt. Now that I look at it, I should have steamed it (eep!), but regardless of the odd crease, it’s an excellent piece for the cold months, and not to toot my own horn, but I like the way it makes my bod look from behind – shapes the bum quite splendidly and I only point that out because I am not that curvy of a woman, so this skirt is like a magic bum enhancing skirt.

And we’re back! I apologize for the lengthy hiatus on shop updates. With a new man in my life, the holidays, and just really getting back into the swing of things, I was having a hard time getting around to listing items. I took these photos about 2 weeks ago, and am only getting around to posting them now. Sometimes there is so much goodness going on in your non-internet real life, that its hard (or your don’t want) to step away from it. I am finding myself at a point where I need to find the balance in it all, so I’m not giving myself self-inflicted anxiety over all that needs, and should, be done.

Anyways, only four new items for you today, but all quite lovely pieces. Come on by the shop and have a look-see.

Bonjour! Un Shop Update

It feels like every time I take listing photos for the shop, a thunderstorm rolls in. What is this curse? So once again, the lighting in these photos leaves much to be desired. But what can a girl do? These are the woes of a girl who cannot afford a shop studio just yet, and thus, lovely natural light can be few and far between when the sun does not hit my apartment windows quite right (or at all). Anyways!! This week I have two very lovely skirts! The polka dot baby was actually from my very own wardrobe, but I decided to let her go. She deserves a lot more wear than I was giving her. Oh, and then these adorable 1960’s powder pink ruffle bloomers! Eep! So darling. They need a good vintage negligee loving home. As does the robe. I love this robe, I do. But my hoarding of robes needs to come to an end (it won’t though).

I hope everyone has a very lovely Thursday! Come virtually visit the shop today. Maybe something will catch your eye!

Okay, so I kind of lied last shop update when I said that was it for my Summer-ish items. While thrifting in NY State I happened upon far too many delightful items that I just couldn’t pass up, regardless of the changing season. And you know, sometimes I feel there are many pieces that transition nicely into many seasons (even if it’s robin egg blue!) Styling is the key. Anyways! I’ve got a bit of both this shop update. The Fall skirts are ever so lovely. I’m sure they would love to find a new home. Although I’m happy to keep them company in the mean time. Pop by the shop to check these new babies out!

PS – I apologize for the horrid lighting in most of these photos. I use natural light, and a lovely thunderstorm rolled in in the midst of photo taking. So thank you, mother nature.
