By all these lovely tokens

I know it may be hard to appreciate the cuteness of these warmer clothes in today's shop update, especially if you live anywhere near the mitten where I am and are taking in this 90+ degree weather we've been having for the last few days. BUT, September is upon us, darlings. . . and as if overnight we'll be tweeting about how we're enjoying the smells and sights of Autumn too too soon.

Happy September TOMORROW, can you even believe it?!


"By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer."
- Helen Hunt Jackson, September, 1830-1885

Novelty Print of the Day -- Vintage PAULINE TRIGERE Women & Trees Silk Dress

I can't believe the beauty that is this vintage Pauline Trigere dress. Besides the fact that it is made out of silk chiffon, the print is incredible. I love the fluidity of the women figures, they look like mythical goddesses, and they seem almost entranced by being in nature and surrounded by trees. The large tree that takes up nearly the entirety of the skirt of the dress is stunning! I'm in love with this.

For sale by B and H Studio on Ebay.

What'll I do?

Okay, let's be honest, some covers of songs just plain STINK. I won't go into naming the ones on my personal bad list, but it's true.

HOWEVER, sometimes, and more often than not actually, I come across a remake of a song that I absolutely love, and on a few occasions, even by accident!

A few years ago when my boyfriend worked in Portland for the summer, I found this song completely by accident on youtube and sent it to him when I was missing him like crazy. I love the voice of the girl, and her expressions and actions in the video reminded me so much of how I felt at the time.

♫ When I'm alone with only dreams of you that won't come true, what'll I do? ♫

The lovely song, originally written by Irving Berlin was also sung in the past by Julie London and Frank Sinatra, both also worthy of a listen.

My Best Friend's Wedding

One of my very dear friends, Abby Rose, was married this weekend to her sweetheart of 5 years, Tommy. I loved so many details of their charming little outdoor wedding, that I just had to share some pics! Hope you enjoy.

A + T = ♥

The Happy Couple

If I'm ever to be married, I hope it is an outdoor wedding as well. I really delighted in the greenery all around and especially the rose petals on the ground where the couple stood. Also, how about that little lacey 50's style wedding dress!? She had it specially made for her, and she couldn't have picked a more flattering and beautiful dress.
Such a cutie pie, my Abby Rose!

Beautiful outdoors

Really love the colors chosen for the outdoor decor too.

My sis and I had a marvelous time, wish we would have taken more pics with the bride, though! Will have to post the photo booth ones after I scan them. Photo booths at weddings are SUCH a fun idea, btw!
