Happy Valentine's Day, buddies! I am spending mine passing out vintage valentines to my coworkers (I know, the nerdiest) and then camping out inside with my mountain man and a glass of wine while the snow turns to slush outside. I will also be toasting my grandparents, who celebrate their 61st (!) wedding anniversary today. And, because I can't resist a holiday with such an awesome color scheme and motifs, I bought myself a few valentines: the vintage heart shaped chocolate box and red woven box purse in the photo above. What are you doing for Valentine's Day?

A cold and snowy morning spent in my apartment, drinking Dunkin' Donuts coffee (I'm becoming an addict now that I'm an east coast girl with one right across the street) and longing to wear the colorful dresses that hang on my bedroom door without hiding them under my winter coat.

A few new frocks hanging on my bedroom door, all vintage except for the polka dot Karen Walker number.
New goodies, including glittery socks from Opening Ceremony, two matching vintage brooches, and an Anthropologie coin purse.
I've been collecting a lot of fake food lately and these glittery grapes are my favorite find so far.

The last time I photographed this cotton candy hued mohair coat was back in 2011, which feels like forever ago. I wore it then with a similarly saccharine 1960's dress covered in giant bows, and in these photos I paired with my favorite brown suede skirt and an orange silk blouse I unearthed from a pile at the Alameda Flea Market. These photos were shot over a month ago (which you probably already noticed if you follow me on Instagram) but I've been a blogging snail lately. Today I'm bundled up in a winter coat, oversized scarf, and hat with ear flaps, dreaming of those recent days when many thick layers were not a requirement!
