Duck, Duck, Cute!

Monday... aka the first day summer school... aka the start of my "grueling" four hour days!
I think if I had to pick one "go-to" dress, this would be it! It just makes me feel good on days I can't deal with the closet monster... although this dress did get me in trouble one day. I was in a very backwoods antique store in Wisconsin with the boy when a huge bug flew at me! I started freaking out when it flew down my dress! I grabbed the zipper and just yanked! So there I was, dress unzipped below my belly button and excitedly brushing at my collarbone and screaming! I flicked the bug off and looked up to see the old half-toothless owner and another male shopper just staring at me in the aisle. Yeah, time to zip up and go.
Cardigan - thrifted
Dress - thrifted
Shoes - Unisa


Tuesday...
Another easy "go-to" dress!
Dress - vintage via www.santokivintage.etsy.com
Bangles - thrifted
Shoes - thrifted Nine West

In other exciting news... I opened a new etsy shop! The Roof is on Fire - Vintage Homegoods and Hand-screened Art! My poor little condo is just too stuffed with amazing little cute things, so it's time to let a few of them find new homes! Plus I'm starting a line of hand screenprinted art! So far I just have one listed, but will add more once I get more canvas! Plus I can do custom colors to match your decor! Yay for cute, unique, pretty, rad, cheap, awesome, fun home things!

I'm sorry the bug attacked you but, your story bought a smile to my face... in the something like that would totally happen to me kind of way.

The second dress is beautiful, I almost thrifted a skirt very similar but, the size was written wrong and it was too small, sigh.

Ooooo that embroidered dress is bringing on one of those times when I curse a "from etsy" tag; you just know there won't be another exactly the same. Curses!

Great big story, too. :D.
