I'll admit, I was getting a little overwhelmed with the amount of brown in my pictures lately, so I decided a location with a little more green would be a refreshing change. I love how this shoot ended up with a Tuscan feel to it- I think it really captures where I live.
I have some great news this week as well. I finally buckled down and drew up two designs for the ModCloth Make the Cut Contest. Well, guess what? Both of them are finalists! I would appreciate it SO very much if you would take the time to vote for them. You can find them here & here.
Also, I just found out today that I was featured on the ModCloth blog, Story. Click here to check it out!
This cute little plaid piece is actually a jumper that I wore as a skirt. I found it at Alison's lovely shop, My Avonlea. I love this shop because the clothes are beautiful and the pictures are always so lovely! There's nothing like beautiful pictures to show off beautiful vintage. Alison started the shop to make her dream of being a stay at home mother and wife a reality. Today she and her family spend their time going on grand vintage treasure hunts for the store! "I consider us a vintage archaeologist family, " says Alison. Doesn't that just sound like so much fun?
Cats & Crickets
I have been looking for a simple white bow blouse forever now. They seem so hard to come by- yet I see them online all of the time! This lovely little beauty comes from Cats & Crickets. There are some adorable things in this store right now- including a wool skirt, and a pair of shoes that I particularly have my eye on. And there is another blouse in pink, similar to the one I am wearing among tons of other pretty things. If you stop by, be sure and look through all of the pages, because you don't want to miss any of it!
I am seriously considering the opening of an online vintage shop. I love finding and reviewing them ( as you all are aware- hehe) and I know I would love to run one of my own. I just have to iron out some details and I think I may just get started on that. Do any of you have vintage shop running advice you want to share?
