"How to be Alone"

Lauren of deargolden shared this earlier on twitter and well, I just had to share it with you, dear blog readers, because it's just one of those sweet and special little uplifting videos that needs to be shared.

I've always found a comfort in solitude, but I have to admit sometimes when the loneliness sets in, it can be hard to bear.

Don't we all feel that way sometimes?

I hope this little video by filmmaker Andrea Dorfman, and poet and performer Tanya Davis makes you SMILE. :)

"Lonely is a freedom that breathes easy and weightless and lonely is healing if you make it."
(I couldn't agree more)

Novelty Print of the Day -- Vintage Vested Gentress YAK PRINT Skirt

If you're a Vested Gentress fan, then you can probably be able to tell immediately that this is a cute little item with their label attached. Yes indeed, the details fit the name: silly, playful, and usually with an animal or two as the star of the garment. In this case it's the happy YAK, and in pink to boot!

Blue Jean Baby

I'm lovin' the denim looks for fall that I've been seeing all over the place
in my favorite fashion mags.
Is there really anything that DOESN'T go with jean?
These high waist jean shorts were just added
earlier this week to the shop.

My friend Amy over at WildfellHallVintage is telling me I should keep 'em.
I'm very tempted. At any rate, if you don't see them in the shop later on today, you'll know why.

How do you like to spruce up your denim? I adore that first runway pic below (Ralph Lauren) with the ruffled top underneath the overalls and the hat. So CUTE.

Novelty Print of the Day -- 70's Vintage DIVE DINER MENU Dress

This is SO cute to me. Being a lover of dive diner food, I can completely appreciate this dress! As a matter of fact, we have a local 24 hour-a-day dive diner just a few minutes from where I live, and my favorite thing to eat after a night out on the town is called "hippie hash". It's hash browns with tons of veggies on top, sprinkled with feta cheese. Hits the spot every time late night hunger hits, I'm tellin' ya!

Find this cute dress in the shop of digvintageclothing on Etsy.

You were the sweetest thing that I ever knew

Annie Lennox and John Malkovich people! I have always loved the dramatic and passionate performance of the leading lady of the Eurythmics in this video. Also starring (yes that is him!) Hugh Laurie of HOUSE. This video is so visually rich as you'll see; just chock full of luxurious lace and velvet costumes, along with powdery pale faces and Victorian wigs. Watch the story that unfolds and see if you think the end is real or just her imagination. The part when Annie's character makes a scene playing tug-o-war for John with his new bride is the BEST!

But I don't care for sugar, honey, if I can't have YOU

Novelty Print of the Day -- vintage STATE FLOWERS Cotton Sundress

States and their representative flowers adorn the cotton frock that comes with its original belt. AND because it has a few tiny imperfections, the seller is starting off the auction at 99 cents!
