New & Old

This week brought (you guessed it) more snow! Despite being stuck indoors the majority of the week due to the weather, I grabbed a friend of mine who had flown in from LA and decided to stage a little photo shoot in my apartment. At night. In winter. My "professional lighting kit" consisted of one of those disposable foil baking pans duct taped to a floor lamp. Resourceful is, after all, my middle name.

So... all of these items are newly available (or newly updated!) in the shop. Head over and check them out... there's something for every season. The plaid maxi skirt above is my current favorite; I researched the designer and the company that made these beautiful USA-made wool skirts in the 60's and 70's. I'm sure it won't be hanging around here for long!

There's an adorable little 60's shift dress that brings out the Twiggy side of anyone who slips it on. It's in beautiful condition, and I love its whimsical prints.

This criss-cross denim dress is an absolutely fantastic vintage steal. It's one of those unique pieces that you just can't find anywhere else. Go on, go check out all of the new inventory in the shop!! After all, spring it just around the corner, so I'm told.

Snow and Again

It's been a while, I know.
 The holidays sneak up on me every year, and this year seemed more overwhelming than most. Then, just after the season should have come to a close and given me a few days to get back to normal, this snowpocalypse fell from the sky and stranded us in the apartment for two days. Apparently no one in this city owns a shovel or a plow. As a Pennsylvania native, it's so disappointing when the rest of the east coast loses their mind over a few inches of snow. State of emergency? Please.

I can't just complain, though; the snow days gave me some time to undecorate and unwind after a busy couple of weeks, before I head back into the city for my first day at my new job tomorrow(!). I hope everyone had a beautiful holiday(s) and I can't wait to see what this new year brings. New beginnings, a clean slate for good health, and best wishes for all!
