Howdy blog land! It's been a while. I will spare you the dull details, but let's just say I lost focus. I haven't given up on blogging yet, so I hope you haven't given up on me.
For now, I'll start out easy with a SHOP UPDATE!

Wedding Post II

I was so excited to see Kristen wearing some Pretty Damn Cute vintage heels in her wedding pictures that I didn't notice right away how similar our Big Day outfits were.

I hunted and hunted for a vintage gown in my size but ended up falling for this vintage style dress. And though I would have loved to wear red heels, that just wasn't practical for a farm house wedding. I still love and wear my red floral sandals so I'm happy I went with them.

To see the post of Kristen's wedding pics featuring a pair of Pretty Damn Cute here.

Iconic vintage wedding style

How cute is this couple?!?!? What an amazingly cute couple in such iconicly cute clothes. Kristen got her cute red heels from my shop! I'm really glad they worked out as they work perfectly with their whole look!
The other great part about these photos is how they connect with my own wedding. I was married last year in August, and I wore not only red shoes, but a short, lacey, wedding dress too. Tomorrow I intend to post shots from my wedding.
What are some of your favorite wedding looks? Did you do a vintage wedding? My wedding had a vintage flavor to it, but, despite my best attempts, I could not find a dress nor shoes that were vintage that worked for me.
Thanks again Kristen for sending me these great shots! Best of luck to you and your handsome man!

Something Wicked (Cool) This Way Comes

These are some items that have been waiting and waiting to appear in the shop!

The Victorian Jacket/Dress: A one of a kind piece from the velvet neck wrap with tassels to the chunky buttons to the fur collar. I can (and did on the listing) go on and on about this piece. Best of all: you can wear it as a dress or a coat!

The dress: Howard Wolf 1960s. Babydoll style. Full-skirt. Chunky buttons. Beautiful blackbird and floral designs on bust and cuffs.

The shoes: Cut-outs! Brogue detailing! Oxfords! Chunky heels! If these were my size, I'd weat them with cute socks/bold tights evey day.

Lil' Bitty Sneak Peek

This is a dress tha tI found months and months ago. It screams goth, Wednesday Adams, and fall. But it also sings gorgeous, one-of-a-kind vintage. It has full length sleeves and hits just below the knee. It is oh, so lovely and I will miss seeing it hang in my closet, but will love knowing it finally has a good home!

Coming soon:

Autumn Rush!

Blogger is acting a bit odd today, and I've been trying my best to format this post for quite a while now, and it's just not working (it won't let me cut and paste text or photos), so I'm kind of giving up.
These cute, bold bits are some of the new fall pieces in the shop. All are on sale now. There are many new pieces to come, which I had planned to preview, but blogger be damned!
Click on the photos to view the link! My fav is the Rust colored button down dress -- VINTAGE Yves Saint Laurent! Gush!

{After long last, it's time to blog again! I was away for much of August and then with September came SCHOOL! Yes, I've been back in the classroom since August 25th; my chater-school-speil belongs not here, but elsewhere, so all I'll say is that most, if not all of us, in Massachusetts at least, have longer days and longer years. C'est la vie!}
