$11 in '11

i've got big plans for my little etsy vintage shop in the new year.  it's always been a great way for me to cycle out vintage pieces from my own wardrobe while ensuring everything i've loved finds another loving closet.  but i'm ready to expand (hello, sizes other than mine) and really have the shop turn into a beautiful thing in 2011!  so!  as a little "happy new year" to my shoppers, i've marked nearly half my inventory down to a measly $11!  great way for you to score some post-holiday treats for yourself, great way for me to make room for the new old stuff!  shop away, and have a wonderful new year's weekend!!!

fancy felines

oh, snap.  united bamboo's 2011 calendar.  though they can probably never top the above photo from their 2010 calendar, i can't pretend i didn't almost buy this.  (and i'm sure i still will.)  next year they need to hire jude.

silly sweet sweaters

after a warm and lovely christmas here in florida with our family, my parents flew back to virginia and were greeted by several feet of snow.  sorry, mama!  i figured the least i could do was toss a few of my favorite vintage sweaters into the shop for all you chilly ladies out there.  our good friends at the postal service promise to get them to you come rain, sleet, or snow- so shop away!

1. not having to bake sugar cookies from scratch again for a year, 2. the adorable portrait my friend christy drew of me for christmas, 3. cracking open a new sewing kit, 4. finding the baggu i've been eyeing for $4.99 at a day-after sale (i got one for my brother too), 5. lingering party decorations that will continue to linger.

to sell or not to sell

i've always wanted to find a vintage sequined butterfly top.  always!  and a few weeks ago i found a pristine one, which has since been hanging in my "workshop" begging to be worn to an excellent new year's eve party.  i don't think i'm going to an excellent new year's eve party.  should i stick it in my shop so another girl can shimmer under the disco ball while ringing in 2011?  check yes or no.  {edit: yup!}

happy feet

a couple weeks ago we went to R's parents' to celebrate his dad's 65th birthday.  little did i know i'd be walking away with presents myself!  remember when i mentioned all the amazing old clothes R's mom had stored away?  well, the lady had shoes too.  size 7 shoes.  amazing shoes she bought thirty years ago in italy and never wore, packed away in boxes to be donated.  i'm a size 7 and when R's sister pulled pair after pair out, i squealed and clapped like a little kid.  the white leather boots need some tlc (any tips?), but i'm quite certain i don't need a thing for christmas now.

oh, pushing daisies.  i loved you in 2007, and i really love you now.  we've been watching it instantly on netflix, and though it's given me a nightly pie craving, it's so so pretty and perfect when watched under five blankets with a boyfriend on one side and a cat on the other.  completely the love child of my favorite movie and favorite television series (amélie & six feet under), dressed in vintage frocks and floral wallpaper.  (dude, they even made the city morgue cute.) plus chuck looks just like my best friend brie.  what's not to love?
