A few weeks back I had my annual closet clearout. It’s always such a good feeling to pass on things you no longer wear to fellow vintage-lovers who can be another chapter in their story. But, as my husband always says, it’s not really a closet clearout. It’s really a “Make Room for New Dresses.” He clearly doesn’t know me at all…

True to form, no sooner had the last parcel been dropped off at the post office than I suddenly spied so many beauties floating around the interwebs, tempting me with their full skirts. Their novelty prints. Their glitter. But, as I tend to rationalize…now I have all of this extra room in my wardrobe…

For My Castle

If I were a bird, I know where I’d want to live

For Some Sparkle

I feel that there’s just something about vintage jewelry. Maybe mores than dresses, a special piece of jewelry comes with a story of a fairytale night. Of where she wore it. Who she wore it with. Or if she simply wore it to please herself.

Everyone’s always asking me where I find my belts. Truth is, no one particular place. But when I see one like this, I simply must pounce…

Ahhh there are too many beautiful things out there… Some days, I want them all. And others, I get joy out of simply smiling at them from afar, imagining the wardrobes they’ll en d up in and the adventures they’ll get to have.

Right, time to stop window shopping and time to get back to work. I have new students starting in a few weeks and am busily trying to get the lab prepped: lab coats to order, dissection kits to buy, microscopes to polish. Okay, except for that last one….

What about you – Had your eye on anything lately??
