flowers, beer gardens, driving with the windows open...

It's still a bit chilly, but maybe spring is here at last: we have daffodils! And there are lots of flowers and ruffles to usher in spring in this week's shop preview, but also some items for those of you who love the less than frilly gear: a vintage auto print blouse, a mod striped knit dress, and a great print blouse that will take you back to Art 101. Oh, yes, and a dress that makes me think of one of my favorite beverages.

  1. i am always so envious of your finds! i am especially in love with the buttercup blouse, and i could definitely see myself wearing that muumuu - let me know when it's up in the shop!

  3. i'm soooo getting into the summer dress mode!

    (high life is my cheap drink of choice ;)

  5. Seriously, I could never get tired of 50's cotton prints.. such good ones in here! I love Wendy Woods too, her stuff is always so over-the-top cute. Is that buttercup 50's shirt a medium/large by any chance?

  6. Thanks, lovelies!

    TGS--I love that buttercup blouse, particularly the gathers at the back (not seen in photo). Sadly, it measures closer to a XS-S (35" bust), as most of this gal's 50s clothing did (blouse came from a big estate buy last year).

  7. i love the cut and color of that lady sutton. such a perfect workaday shirt. and that ruffled floral piece reminds be of my girl Alice on the L Word, so, yes, LOVE.

  8. How was I not already a follower? Weird. Anyway.... FABULOUS preview post my dear! What a lot of work you have been doing this past week, no? I am loving the Persian patchwork print button-up cotton dress, by Lady Bayard!

  9. You find the best prints! I too am loving the buttercup blouse!
