And I miss you desperately.
And I miss you desperately.
Hello friends! Wanted to tell you about a super fun sale that’s happening tomorrow, June 9, at 614 Bolling Avenue in between Avon and Sixth streets. The Backyard Boutique, as we’re calling it, is basically a retail store that’s outside. Not a yard sale, mind you, because you won’t find any of these. You will, however, find stuff like this:
Felt posy pins!
Vintage beaded clutch purses!
Vintage wallpaper pendants!
Mercury glass mason jars!
Plus, not pictured: Vintage clothing. More jewelry. Art. Furniture and home décor. And me!
It’s all quite lovely and exciting. Please join us! The party starts at 10am—there will be balloons! And mimosas! And Benny Goodman! (Not actually Benny, as he had a prior engagement, but we will be playing his music.)
Saw this quote today and thought of me:
"I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little – if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”—Coco Chanel
Yeah, I said thought of “me.” What of it?
What do you think? Stay tuned for more on this topic in the coming weeks!
New perfume! Got this at Anthropologie last night for $8. I got the Jasmine scent, but I also liked “Vine.” It’s actually fragrance oil, so—and this may not be scientifically true, but I feel like it’s right—it lasts longer. I kept smelling myself all evening thinking, “What is that lovely scent?” And you know what? It was me.
Hi all! I’m headed to Harrisonburg this weekend for a jewelry-related photo shoot and figured I might as well share some images I’ve been perusing for inspiration. So many pretties!
New shoes! Except, mine are navy blue patent leather (not black) and I got mine at TJ Maxx (not Macy’s) for $22 (not $99). You know how I love a good wedge.
I’ve worn them twice already and can’t wait for this dreadful rain to go away so I can wear them again.
What about you? Bought anything new recently? Do tell!
Chiffon? Drop hem? What’s not to love?
Good news, all! I’m back into blazers!
Do you ever find something in your closet that you used to love, but then got tired of, and then forgot about? And now that you’ve found it again, you wear it and rediscover why you loved it?
That’s totally me and my khaki blazer right now. We’re having a moment.
And so, I wanted to do a little blazer round-up on the off-chance that you’re having a blazer moment right now too. The trick to a good blazer is to find one that nips in slightly (not severely! I hate the way that looks!) at the waist. Vertical seams are always welcome, too.
to let you k now I’m super sorry for giving up on S&W last week.
