The Color of Cozy

Just did a quick sweep in the store to bring you this Thursday morning COZY shop update. Crimson, russet, forest green, and various shades of brown are making my little spot on Etsy so pretty I think. Today I'm with the kids (subbing for kindergarten), so I won't be as active on twitter, but I'm wishing you all a wonderful Thursday!

Can't believe the weekend is almost here! Any fun plans?
Tonight one of my friends invited me to go salsa dancing, and how I want to go! The problem is that I've been feeling a bit under the weather the past couple of days. If I can kick this little bug, I'll be back with some latin dancing pics in the near future. ;)

Style Crush -- Jackleen

Do you ever get style crushes? I was at the wedding of my good friends this last Friday evening, and while checking out who was there and what they were wearing (as I often tend to do, naturally) I saw this adorable girl walk in with her date and right there: instant style crush!

This is Jackleen.  Isn't she lovely?

We became friends and chit chatted about art, blogs, and fashion at our little round table at the wedding reception while everyone else hit up the appetizer table and danced in the background. When it was time to go, we made sure to share online info to keep in touch. I even asked her if she'd model for the shop sometime. Since she does live a little ways away it might be hard to work out, but I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that we can make it happen sometime in the near future!

Here's the cherry on top of our meeting: after letting this girl know just how much I adored her sense of style she ended up giving me her blazer before she left the party. I couldn't get over the cute little flowers on it. Isn't that the sweetest thing? :)

Find Miss Jackleen posting pictures of her world on her tumblr here.

p.s. her date (standing next to her in the bottom picture) gets kudos too, his outfit is just as darling as hers!

Hats & Shoes

Just a little Tuesday shop update including some shoes & hats that have recently been added. By the way, do you think there's a chance I that I love black boots? ;)

I also have to share that I've recently finished reading The Painted Drum by Louise Erdrich. She is SUCH an amazing writer, and one of my favorites since I've read Tracks years ago. In case any of you are looking for something to read this month, I do recommend this book. Let me know if you have any recommendations for fall reading too.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Lu Flux

I know I have no right dreaming about spring time clothes right now. But I recently saw this cute little video and line for the London-based Lu Flux SS2011 collection and it made me wish (yes, already!) for warmer days. I'm torturing myself here, aren't I?!

P.s. Isn't that male model fun?

The video reminds me of the scene in Disney's Cinderella when the mice dress her up in her room! :)
I love that dress in the center with the house on it.*cute*

You Do Something To Me

Originally written by Cole Porter, this version of the song "You do something to me" is performed by Sinead O'Connor from the Aids benefit album Red, Hot & Blue created in the 1990's. I've always loved this pretty song, and it's fun to see Sinead O'Connor going glam for the video too. I highly suggest this entire compilation, actually. Some other artists on the Red, Hot & Blue cd include Tom Waits, Debbie Harry, Iggy Pop, and Annie Lennox, just to name a few.

Enjoy, and Happy Monday, lovelies!
