I've just returned from a meeting that means some exciting things are in store for SJV in the upcoming weeks. I can't say too much yet (I hate being so vague, but mums the word, for now) but I know that you're all going to be very excited too! I'll tell you more as soon as I'm able.

In other news... well, there's not a whole lot of other news. I suppose I could blab on about the weather (it's really nice right now) or our weekend plans (going to see Thrice at the Chameleon) or what I'm watching on TV (old episodes of Twilight Zone) but what I really need to do is get to work on today's shop update. I've done a little closet cleaning and will be adding a few of my own vintage pieces to the shop in the next couple of weeks. Today it's one of the very first vintage dresses I ever bought! A little red 60s mini that I adore but doesn't quite fit me anymore. Wah! Someone find it a good new home! :)

Ahhh, this is such a cute outfit. The dress and vest go so perfectly together. And the polka dots just scream summer.

What do you like about having an etsy shop? I'm hoping to start one of my own. Are there any tricks to it?

Love the little waistcoat/vest, looks fab with the dress.Am so envious of your warm weather, it's been freezing cold here in New Zealand and I'm rugged up and dreaming of the sun....

I'm seriously loving the colour combinations going on here and of course that waistcoat is perfect for your complexion.

I'll keep my eyes peeled for the SJV news!
