  1. Love the school girl dress & the plaid dress! I'm sooo ready for spring!

  2. Check my pulse... I think I just died. There are about 5 things there I would sell my front teeth for. LOVE the brown Fauvist, the Vera is FABULOUS! That green jaquard cardi?! The Chuck Howard?!!! OUCH! You really should only post two or three of these at a time lady. It's just too much.

    On a more personal note... when we came home from our snowy night time walk last night we realized Rudy was trying to smuggle a dirty old Slim Jim wrapper inside the house. At first I thought he had a leaf or something caught in his beard and when I went to brush it away I discovered what it really was. Gross! But super funny.

  3. WOW!!!!!!! These are beyond amazing! The Fauvist dress.. unbelievably adorable. Really they are all fantastic!

  4. GGS--Thank you! I'm not sure if I'm ready for spring or not, but the shop is. I have racks of summery dresses begging me to photograph them.

    Bethany--And thank *you*! Oh, Rudy! Lucy had a little feast while we were out on Saturday night. I'll tell you all about it--I owe you a convo. :)

  5. Thank you TC&TC! I love that Fauvist number, too.

  6. That last dress is just perfection! Somehow you can pinpoint what era Jonathan Logan's dresses come from, but they never look dated. Love.

  7. brown flower dress, FTW! (ps: are you still listing new stuff from that one huge clotheshorse estate?!)

  8. G--yes, I am! In fact, everything here except the mint green 1950s dress is from her. And we still have stacks and stacks of it. I'm really looking forward to spring/summer if only because I've been sitting on so many summer dresses from her.

    Have I mentioned she is still alive, and, apparently, still quite the shopper?
