- vintage wool beret

Just the other day Tom and I took advantage of a little bit of sunshine and above freezing temperatures to get some fresh air in the park down the street. There's still plenty of snow on the ground (and 8 more inches coming today!) but it was refreshing to finally see some blue sky for a change.

I didn't have a lot of time to write yesterday when I posted about my sponsorships so I wanted to take a second to say something today. Rest assured that I don't plan on turning this space into Times Square with flashing ads and pop ups that assault you when you come to visit. I see the sponsorships as a way to connect with other Etsy sellers, bloggers and small business owners. Thank you for the encouraging comments and as for the anonymous naysayers (why are they always anonymous?) I think you'll see it's really not going to change things around here too much.

On another note, sorry it's been so quiet in the Etsy shop! I've been in the middle of a major office overhaul and I'm finally starting to feel organized after our move (yes, it's been that long!). I'm also working on getting a big pile of spring time dresses ready for you. In the meantime, I will be taking photos today for a little shop update tomorrow.

That dress with the little velvet jacket is a 40's dream. I was drooling over that jacket during the holidays and was so sad it went out of stock.

Love the colonial row houses behind you. They remind me of where I used to live in Boston.

i think it's true that "haters" always hide behind the anonymous option....don't even listen your blog is amazing and I think supporting each other with sponsorships and advertising is a great thing! :)

Mustard colored socks + oxfords= the most perfect combination ever. So lovely!

princesspolitico said...

impeccable. the fact that this gorgeous dress is slightly sheer takes the entire outfit to another level. love the slightly longer length and the combination of navy blue and black. i've always loved that combination!

Wow it looks chilly with all that snow. Love your outfit, you really suit strong primary colours like that navy, just stunning against the white of the snow.

Those oxfords are seriously to die for!!

I think sponsorship for your blog is a fabulous idea. Your blog is so well established and professional. There is absolutely nothing wrong with sponsorships!

A gorgeous dress and a gorgeous outfit, per usual. Love the colors. I actually kind of like the idea of sponsors... I'm sure you'll pick good ones, and I can add a few new shops to my favorites. :D
