fancy dress

I commented on Twitter last night that I think this latest shop preview might be too fancy for me.  But now that I look it over, it's really not--especially with the holidays (and holiday parties) coming up.  And there's a lot of "meat" (i.e. everyday wear) in this preview, too.

The first and last dresses kill me, by the way.

Look for these in the shop soon!

  1. Oh my gosh, I just love the tribal pattern dress and that cute red plaid skirt! You sure do have an eye for discovering the best vintage pieces! I hope you are treating yourself to keeping a few ;)

  2. peplums & plaid, tribal & aztec! wonderful! My favorite of all might be the bubble skirt though. What a great dress!
