  1. That scallop print sweater and the chevron dress are to die for! Love.

  2. there just aren't enough brick prints in the world if you ask me. And that polka dot dress!

  3. I just don't know how you decide which of your amazing finds you decide to keep for yourself, I'd want to keep them all ^U^ and if they didn't fit I'd want to put them on the wall.
    I love your blog and shop.

  4. Ahhhhhhh - must have that zigzag stripe dress! And someone is going to be fantastic in that poodle blouse. I'm with claire - I don't know how you deal with not clogging up your own closet.

  5. well the last dress is just, well, is *just*. sigh...

  6. chevron knit dress with scarf is amazing. the 40s dress is divine!

  7. I don't think I've ever even seen a brick print, it's pretty fab. Also, that scarf neck on that 60's dress is C U T E!

  8. Whoa, you have so many amazing vintage finds! Did you already put these in your shop or will you soon do so? If it's the former I'd be entirely sad because I kind of need that poodle blouse. And also maybe kinda half of what you posted.

  9. Hi Eline! This is a preview--I'm starting to list these items today, and they'll be appearing in my shop throughout the next week.

  10. Okay, I am starting to obsess just a bit about that gray chevron zigzag stripe dress. It hasn't been listed yet, has it?
