dress- see by chloe
ballet flats- french sole
we've had spring weather on and off here in the bay, which gave me the opportuniy to wear my favorite floral dress to a wine festival a couple weeks ago. it's a rare occassion you'll see me in anything strapless as things don't usually want to stay in place on my body type but this one has some major rubbery elastic in the bust that actually does its job. that extra asymetric inset just adds a bit of "flair" that makes an otherwise simple dress a bit more interesting. oh, and we can't forget the pockets. they're the icing on the cake when a dress has them, don't you think?
p.s. if you haven't already, you must check out my favorite new blog, if you need lovin' written by fellow vintage proprietress, rebecca crowther. and not just because of the sweet piece she just wrote about yours truly, but because as i've said before, the girl has got some seriously great taste in vintage and music and writes with a cheeky style i'd dare say rivals that of the great dorothy parker. need i say more?

dress- 1960s vintage
bag- dooney and bourke
a few snaps from last weekend down at the boardwalk in santa cruz. damien and my mom share the same birthday so the saturday before, the whole family went down south for a day filled with sun, sweets and lazy strolling. to my delight i found i was pretty much in carnival camoflage with the colorful 1960s shift that i wore-- it had been in the shop but it's migrated from my shop rack into my closet. a good pop floral print gets me every time. as for my badass tattoo (damien's initials in old english, complete with shamrock graphic - so classy!) it was a joke i surprised damien with towards the end of the day. i'd like to think that it made his birthday complete.

here you have a long overdue blog update of some of what's new in the boutique-- at the moment the newest of the new includes a lemon and mint color story-- one of my favorite palettes for spring and all over the place in the fashion mags at the moment. the update preceding this soft palette was pretty much the opposite-- bright fuschia, corals and blues. so whether you've got a spring wedding to go to, or a bachlorette party in vegas, we've pretty much got you covered.
