Back In the Saddle

Oh yeah- I definitely tend to disappear from the blogging world sometimes. I have a good reason this time though! Im pulling double duty these days. My vintage etsy shop is always number one, however I have also been working at a lodge as their head chef. (2 months only) Fun yes- time consuming- definitely. So we picked up this lovely little bust model. LOVE her! Makes working two jobs so much easier- she does not fuss;). No make-up, hair fixing, pinning required. Just a few looks from our shop on our newbie. What do you think her name should be?
Also, its my birthday week! I will be offering to my readers only 15% off everything in our shop. Just mention 'blog' at check- out. We will take care of the rest!

Manic Monday

As you can see from the above picture....I had a blast at my cousins wedding this past weekend. boylerpf is able to pretty much sum it up. Our dresses are provided by nodtomod vintage and are up for grabs. check out boylerpfs blog for more quirks and pictures of the wedding! (also, we are having a free shipping week in our vintage shop...come by and take advantage!) Hard to get back into the swing of things after a much needed party weekend!

All About Accessories

Most of us know that when it comes to accessorizing a look, it has to be spot on. I was watching an episode of 'The Nanny' the other night (yeah...I watch it and love it) Fran went out of the house to a premiere event but did not get a chance to change her bag to match her leopard print gown. She was put in a magazine under the 'DONTS' fashion section. Here are some accessories that will not put you in the 'DONT' section of a fashion mag. Hope everyone is having a fabulous week!

What Kind of Dress Are You?

There are so many options when it comes to a dress. Mini, long, knee length, silk, bold print, neutral.......the options are endless. I for sure am a 50s silk dress gal for special events. A day out running errands?....I go for the bold french sweetheart dress. Out of these vintage dresses......which best explains you?

Date Night

Tom and I usually do have a date night. Whether it be on a Friday....Saturday...or any day of the week we try to do something by ourselves. (ollie is included of course) Some of our date nights we just stay in, cook a great huge dinner and dress up as if we were going to be going out. Our dining room rarely gets used so we like to eat there on our special night...just like a restaurant. Tonight, I will be wearing this 1950s silk dress from our shop. Nice look for date night?

Gone Country...Kind Of

This past weekend was the Brown County Fair. Im not a huge fair fan....love the rides and all but the food is wayyy spendy. (and for not a lot!) It seems that everyone likes to dress up as a cowboy or cowgirl. My campus riding boots...yeah...that was about as country as I was going to get. I definitely stuck out like a sore thumb in my Carnival of Souls mini dress. (which is available at our shop) This weekend is the city lights festival. Not sure how everyone dresses here for that....Im sure I will stick out yet again!
