This weekend was filled with pretty mundane things like trips to Lowe's for more paint, watching lots of World Cup soccer and eating Auntie Anne's pretzels at the mall. Really, those are the best kinds of weekends aren't they? Now I'm back to work taking photos for this week's Etsy update. I've been doing a major closet clean out so expect lots of dresses from my own collection for sale this week.

Update: Hi everyone! Just checking back in quickly to let you all know that my laptop has officially kicked the bucket. I'm working on getting a new one in the next day or so, but until then it'll be radio silence around these parts. I'll be back in a couple of days with lots of new items for the Etsy shop and regular blog updates. See you then!

Really lovely dress! I own a romper that is really too small for me (but someday soon will not be!) that has vertical stripes in the same color and I love it!

Damn! I adore that dress! My weekend was pretty much the same as yours, household things.
Can't wait to see what you're selling from your closet!

I love the sailor dress so adorable! I agree, those are the best weekends, mine was much the same except we don't have pretzels here (sad face).

I adore this dress, so nice and classic. I always find your photos so stunning as well. Looking forward to your new additions to the shop.

Nice. When I find myself in the mall every once in a blue moon, you can definitely spot me with a Auntie Anne's pretzel. Cinnamon and sugar please!

This is such a fantastic photo shoot. Love the dress. It's super charming with the striped print.

Leilani said...

I love your sailor dress, the stripes are quite unique. The pairing with the cloche works really well, is it from the 20s or is it newer?

Sidewalk Chalk said...

I'm in love with your dress -- glad you had a relaxing weekend!

ohhh, your poor knee...i hope it's not anything serious, i.e. nothing more than a superficial scrape.

on a different note, i love this cafe au lait palette of your pretty ensemble. that sailor dress is wonderful.

I was reading your post but then just stopped at: eating pretzels at the mall.
For some reason I had to think of this for a second and imagine you in a mall, all decked out in pretty vintage with a little straw bag amongst scantily clad teens spending their allowances on oversized slurpees and more scandalous clothing.
I'm glad you made it out ok.
