From My Closet to Yours

2

Today's Etsy shop update is sponsored by... my closet! I've been lucky enough to find several lovely vintage dresses in the past couple of weeks that I'm calling my own so it's time to pass on some older favorites to new homes in order to make room. You may recognize a couple of these from past photos on the blog; like this one or this one.

I try not to get too sentimental about dresses but for some reason tend to get attached to them and have a hard time letting them go. For instance, the 60s ethnic print mini dress was worn on our first Valentine's Day date in Lancaster and the black lacy one was worn to a Christmas party at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles so I have lovely memories attached to them. But, alas, they haven't been worn since, so it's time to find a new home for them!

I am SO BAD at throwing out clothes, but I guess you just have to think of the other people who will get to associate lovely memories of their own with them. They are beautiful!

I really need to do this, but I have so bad when it comes to attachment to certain pieces. So bad, in fact, that I have dresses I've never worn that are at least 2-3 sizes too big for me, but I'm positive that in 20 years they might fit me?

The dresses are so stunning! I totally want one.

I think I feel less badly about getting rid of things if I have pictures of them. Then they're eternal.

Also, I gave you a blog award over on my blog if you go in for those sorts of things:
