newly acquired


I have added a few lovely things to my various collections lately, and by few I mean many piles. My makeup collection in particular has just become way more spectacularly colorful and fun thanks to a generous box of goodies from the wonderful Lime Crime. My new favorite thing is the lavender lipstick, a color I'd been searching high and low for but nothing came close until this magical shade. I also now possess just about every color of shadow you could imagine so I think all of you should come over for a slumber party so we can do each other's makeup.








This seafoam dream dress is another new addition to the collection, courtesy of a sweet lady at the Alameda Antiques & Collectibles Faire who took pity on me and gave me a great discount because I was nearing the end of my flea market funds. How amazing is that lace? And the scalloped hem? And the matching jacket? Perfection.


This sweet little neck tie is a gift from my lovely new sponsor Christine of Flapper Girl. Her shop is filled with this style, the Lady Tie, in a bunch of different colors and patterns. It's the perfect thing to wear with collared blouses and dresses. I have my eye on this mustard-hued beauty as well.



A few other newly acquired goodies: that amazingly girly robe (so perfect for glamorously lounging around my apartment and making my roommate laugh) and a few pretty dresses (1960's lace, 1970's green silk chiffon). Okay, so now it's time for a bit of spring cleaning and purging so I can make room for all these new things! Sidewalk sale, anyone?

These are all so perfect. The seafoam dress is amazing, the lady tie is beautiful. Don't even get me talking about Lime Crime products because I'm so obsessed with their wide range of colours. Great post!

The blue dress is beyond spectacular.

I will be interested to see how the Lime Crime goes. I don't have any but it on my radar.
