new and blue


This pretty blue vintage dress reminds me of a jellyfish, which is exactly why I pounced on it when I saw it hanging in a shop window. I'm completely smitten with the many ruffled layers and pale color. My dress closet (yes, you read that correctly... a whole closet of just dresses) is getting rather packed so I've started hanging the newly acquired ones around my room. I'm not sure if it's looking too crazy in there yet but I do enjoy admiring such pretty things all in a row.

I've been planning some exciting adventures lately. First up is a trip to Reno this weekend for some thrift store hopping, swimming pool antics, and a much-needed heat wave. In a few weeks I'm finally going to Los Angeles, partly on a buying trip for my shop and partly for fun, after months of plans being made and then ruined at the last minute. So Southern Cali ladies, let me know if you want to meet up for champagne and girl talk! I'm also hoping to take a little weekend jaunt to Portland sometime in August. And lastly, the most exciting trip of all: New York in September (6th - 13th) for Fashion Week. I know I already mentioned it but I'm too toooo excited. I've been going a bit stir crazy lately so I'm looking forward to getting out of town and making new friends along the way.

I'm so jealous of all your fun travels. I wish I could get the time off of work but we always seem to be so busy. The jellyfish dress is super pretty, I hope you have a fun occasion to wear it. Encore perhaps?

I love the color of that dress! I have a fuschia shirt with similar sleeves.
Hey it'd be cool to meet you when you're down in L.A... I'd wear a vintage dress my grandma had sewn for herself, just for you! I'm karaoke-shy, though, so perhaps I'd join a different activity.
