Little Dolly

I feel rather guilty every time I visit my mom’s store; she always loads my bag with vintage pretties and never lets me pay. My most recent trip to Florida left me with several pounds of clothing, accessories and a hat box full of vintage underpinnings still in their packages. I also picked up a few pairs of shoe clips, of which one pair is shown above. They’re the perfect pick-me-up for any pair of shoes – you can wear them on the front or back, as shown. Considering how much I’ve been wearing my Seychelles Blimeys (they’re so comfy!), it’s about time I accessorize them a bit.

This was the last day of no laundry, which is why I ended up wearing another Postlapsaria dress. I now have a couple of loads worth of clean clothing, so I can stop cutting into my own profit. It’s really bad when you actually go out and buy a ton of new underwear, just to delay laundry day. Really, I know that’s too much information but it seems relevant to this topic. We’ll go with it.

In other news, my little sister (who, at 23, is not so little anymore) Amanda is coming to New York for fashion week! I couldn’t be more excited. Which brings me to this: NYFW Roll Call! Who will be here? Looking forward to seeing so many of you again – and meeting some of you for the first time!

  1. I love this!! The little bows on the shoes are just lovely! I am also in love with that gray eyeshadow!!

    I will in town this friday night and on saturday. I am not going to the chictopia conference but will just be hanging around. I also think I am going to come back in on Monday for the IFB conference. I hope I will see you around!!!

  2. notjustmedical: Thank you so much!

    princess poochie: Definitely! Hopefully we'll be attending some of the same shows or events!

    jenloveskev: I'd love to see you! A few of us were too late to register for the conference but I think Jennine said something about a dress up event. I hope that happens so we can have all of us in one room again;)

    Naomi: I'm glad I'm not the only one! Thank you.

    Diane: Thank you! Looking forward to seeing you this week. Btw, Sheila never got back to me about the silent auction – I know she must be crazy busy though. I'll plan for it just in case:)

    Mel: I will probably post it on the site tonight!

    Diana: Thank you!

    Stephanie: haha yesss, that's me;)

  3. Oh darling, sometimes I purposely don't bring a jacket on an outing on a chilly night just so I have an excuse to buy something new…!

    I have never heard of shoe clips before! Those are absolutely fantastic. And you are so lucky to have a mommy with a vintage store, so jealous..

  4. Your makeup is gorgeous and I love that dress. I am also ashamed to say I didn't even know shoe-clips existed. I LOVE them. Seems like a great way to turn old shoes into new ones πŸ™‚

    Check out my (new) blog if you ever have some time πŸ™‚ – Celine


  5. Erin (calivintage): Yes! I was thinking if Jenny (Feldman) has a free moment, the three of us should meet up for coffee or something. We went out the other night and you came up in conversation (all good things, of course). And I can't hear/see the word totes without thinking of Fred Flare:)

    mirattes: thank you!

    Dap: That's a girl after my own heart;)

    Celine: Thank you, I will check it out! Also, shoe clips are great – I have a bunch of vintage ones I need to wear more often.

  6. where is Florida is your moms shop? I am new to South Florida, Delray Beach and have been looking for some good vintage.

    Also, love your blog. look forward to your fashion week posts!

  7. IΒ΄ve found out your blog recently and I like it very much! You are very sweet and your way to avoid doing laundry is funny and creative. I wish I could make my own clothes !

  8. i love your make-up!!! i wish i had flawless skin like yours!!! wow!!!

    anyway, it's nice to see shoe clips. i see them online but dont know how they are placed. now, i might have to buy some! πŸ˜€ yay! πŸ˜€ they look great with your oxfords! πŸ˜€

  9. I wish I was going to fashion week. I'm hoping I can find a way to go via Converse since I intern with them. It's making me kind of wish I'd accepted working at Brian Reyes but I've always loved Converse. Have fun at the shows you go to.

  10. Those shoes are growing more and more on me everyday. I might just have to go out and buy a pair!

    I like this version of your dress a lot! The little dolly is perfect πŸ™‚

  11. Jenny (this is Keiko – signed into a group account, sorry!)

    I use the classic Burt's Bees – it's just called Burt's Bees beeswax lip balm. It's the all yellow packaging, not the one with the red top. It's peppermint and it's my favorite!

  12. love those little shoe clips!
    the pics are great!!
    have fun in NYC!


  13. This is my absolute FAVOURITE outfit I have seen you in, I seriously love everything about it and your makeup is so stunning! Absolutely beautiful dear! I know you said you do make larger sizes and once I get some more money I would love to order one exactly like this in my size. (:

  14. Hey, you're looking beautiful just like always. Have you always had that perfect skin? I'm seventeen and my skin condition just depresses me and constantly seems to lower self-esteem. πŸ™

  15. I love your style & blog so much! I am definitely following your blog πŸ™‚ Hope you are having a lovely week!
