3 Spring Dresses

I know it's ONLY January 13th but I'm thinking of spring!! It could possibly be the sunny 79 degrees Fahrenheit I'm feeling with my patio door wide open letting the warm air in or perhaps it's some of the darling  vintage cotton spring dresses I've picked up in the last couple weeks. Yesterday I bought a sweet 1950's lime green patio dress that I will try on later today to see if it's going in my closet, and if it does you can bet I'll be on the hunt for the perfect pair of espadrilles to go with! 

So with the thought of long sunny spring days ahead here are a few blue cuties that will come to my shop later this week.

Vacation Finds!

I can't seem to ever take a vacation, as short or close to home as it might be, without wanting to go scouting for new vintage finds! And this past week was no exception. I took a few days off to spend at my sister and brother-in-laws. While out and about exploring I came across was this beauty. STUNNING!! And she is in wonderful condition!!! I could barely believe it when I saw her. At first I thought it was a reproduction. She was on a dress form so before I attempted to rip it off the form and pay for it I asked the store clerk what she could tell me about her. She said, 'There is a crinoline under the dress....' Hmmmm.... I asked if I could take a closer look at the dress so she took it off the dress form. SOLD! I purchased another 5 quality 1950's dresses there. It's occasions like this that keep me shopping/working on my vacations :)
