Oh, hi y'all! I feel like I haven't shown my face around these parts in quite a while. Sorry about that. I know everyone's tired of hearing about the weather... I'm tired of writing about it! The truth is, last year was my first full winter on the East Coast. I hadn't seen much snow in my life, and it was still a bit of a novelty to me. I felt like I was living in a snow globe and would secretly be a bit giddy every time more fell. Well, it didn't take long for the novelty to wear off and now I'm adjusting to the idea of living with cold and snow on a long term basis. I think my Southern roots are showing.

I also wanted to take a moment to say a huge thank you to everyone who purchased something from my shop last week. The sale was a definite success and I'll be a very busy bee sending out all of the packages this week. Now I have lots and lots of room to start breaking out the spring and summer pieces. Yay! I'm also talking to a couple of my girlfriends about playing mannequin for me in the future. Everyone seemed to love seeing the clothes on real people (I did too!) so hopefully we'll be seeing more of them soon.

I'd love to purchase more from your shop sometime. Hopefully when I have some money to spare. Your shop is one of my favorite and first etsy shops I ever visited. :)

Happy Valentine's Day!!! :)

I love when you link the songs! I have discovered lots of good music thanks to your outfit posts. Which, by the way, I love also. It's great to see the way you mix vintage and modern pieces.

Good to see you on your blog again! I love all of your posts, but your "My Wardrobe" posts always inspire my own wardrobe the most. I bought some of your sale items on Saturday (after a haircut, when I usually like to re-invent myself with "new" clothes). I am looking forward to receiving the items. I also have my eye on two more pieces -- not sure yet if they would suit me. Your shop is among my favourites on Etsy. Thanks so much for running it. :)
