Label love, lingerie & a little bit of CUTE

Just a little Friday night update for you vintage lovers! I don't know what made me happier, finding that pretty Mocha-colored vintage Lanvin dress, or stumbling upon that NOS Panda sweater. I really thought hard about keeping the sweater just because it's too cute for its own good, but both items are actually a tad bit big on me. Another item I initially wanted for myself was that 40's skirt suit! I love the shape of it. Too small, and too bad for me. But I'm happy the shop is getting more filled every day. My goal for the new year is to attempt 200 items. We'll see. . .

P.s. Also, from now on be on the lookout for more lingerie in the shop. I find the two pieces added today quite sexy and they make the perfect little something to have on underneath a bombshell dress (or something like that skirt suit!)  Happy Friday!

I Heart Yokoo!

So happy to find this in my youtube subscription videos this morning! Yokoo is one of my favorite artists with an amazingly talented pair of hands. Etsy did such a lovely job on this little video too. Enjoy. 

1,582 hats and scarves hand knit from this woman, how inspiring!

Relative Garments

I've been noticing some very similar items in the shop lately. Made me think of "garment families". ;)

If clothes were related. . .
This was a fun shop update to put together!

Music Monday : Blue Bayou

It's all too often I like to pretend I can sing this song exactly this way. . .
Love the music, love the lyrics, and LOVE the outfit too.

I'm going back someday, come what may. . .

Sing it, Linda!

Happy music Monday, everyone. . . and for the original Roy Orbison version of this beautiful song, click here.

B-day, Freebies, & Friends

“The secret to staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.” -Lucille Ball

Yesterday I celebrated turning blankety-blank years old! ;) My awesome town has several places one can venture to on their special day to get free food and other goodies. . . so after living in this area for roughly 14 years, I decided to finally take advantage of these offers, and went on my merry way with my sis and later a few friends. 

First we did some thrifting. I always love taking a gander at the old books, don't you?
Then came my free breakfast at one of the best places to eat breakfast locally, Northside Grill!
After walking around a little more, it was time for the free Ben & Jerry's scoop, of course I had chocolate fudge brownie. (only the best ice cream ever created.)
We just had to stop into a couple of vintage boutiques, but don't worry, no "fugly" sweaters were purchased for the shop, or us for that matter. bdayshoppin
6 free bagels from the world-famous (it's true) Zingerman's Deli.
Lastly, this delicious restaurant gave me a free vegetarian entree. I ended up choosing a cilantro-peanut stir-fry that was DELECTABLE. Thank you to my besties for joining me this evening. I love you bunches!

and p.s. I just had to share this with you guys. Do you remember me ever writing about the Innocence Mission? I've actually mentioned them a few times.  The group is one of my very favorite bands to listen to. . . and my brother just bought me their new cd for my birthday. What was so sweet about it was that they left a handwritten 'thank you' note in the envelope with the cd. Made my day! :) Isn't that neat? I want to write them a letter and tell them how much their music has meant to my life. I'm already loving the cd so much!

<3 my new Cd!
I'm grateful for having such a lovely birthday! A great big hug and thank you to my spunk-tacular ( I just know she loves that word) sister Dolores for spending the entire day with me! 
 Will post a few Thankgiving pics later this week! 
♥ Hope you all enjoyed your long weekend. ♥
