Cowboys and Indians





what am I doing with my face? I promise, I'm not angry!

Here are my two new dresses! I can't decide if I want to shorten the first one or not. I kind of like it long and flowy. As for the second dress, I have it tucked up in these photos because it looks really silly on me as a floor length dress. I'm thinking about shortening it to that length though. What do you gals think? Both of these are going to be put up in my Etsy shop (whenever I get around to opening it!). Actually, the shop should be open by the end of the weekend since I'm going to have a lot of free time over the next few days. Anyway, I love both of these dresses!! The bohemian one clearly does not fit me. (It's not zipped up in the back...shhh!) The 50's housewife dress fits, but I know that I'll never wear it, and I'm sure there's a gal out there who would just love to own it....so, Etsy it is!
I was hoping to get some more thrifting in this weekend, but now I'm afraid the snow might force some shops to close! Bleh! Soooo ready for spring. Although, yesterday, on my way home from work I was listening to some really beautiful instrumental music by the band Balmorhea and the snow was falling in this magical way...kind of, floating through the air with no particular direction. It was really relaxing and beautiful!
When Mike and I woke up this morning, all three of our kitties were snuggling with us on the bed! It was so cozy, I could have slept all day. But Mike decided to make me waffles, and that's fine with me! :)

ps: I have 50 followers! Thank you all for reading and for all of the sweet comments you leave! :) I love every one of you and I'm really excited for the give away I'm preparing for one of my fabulous readers :)

  9. i'm so glad your opening a shop. i think you have such fantastic vintage taste and i'm happy that your sharing it with us! the print on the first dress is hands down my favorite thing right now, makes me think of girlie china. i think i'd shorten it though. i can't believe your not keeping the second one, but i know what you mean when you say you'll never wear it. no point in keeping it around! my favorite part about this post is your place. you have the best retro furniture in the very best colors!!!

  13. I can't wait for your etsy shop! Both of those dresses are so lovely! I would shorten the first one but maybe reattach the ruffle at the end. The second one looks great at that length! I can't believe you're not going to keep it! It looks great on you!

  16. Both dresses are AMAZING, but the first one is particularly so! Yeah, I wouldn't shorten it either! It's a perfect dress for a photo shoot sitting in a tree, picnicking or swinging! LOVE IT!
