It's the time of year to start filling up the shop with plaid, knits, and coats...and some festive wear for parties!  I kept a couple sweaters for myself that were meant to go into this preview--whoops--but there's still plenty of cozy stuff here for everyone.  All items coming to the shop over the next week.

  1. That 70s plaid coat is lovely. What size is it?

    1. hi! I haven't measured it yet, but it's a juniors 13/14, and I'm guessing it will measure like a women's XS or S.

    2. Oh, that sounds like it might be a tad small! I tried one on very similar a few days ago but it was too big..! I'm jinxed not to own one! I'll check the listings for measurements, just in case.

    3. hi again! I just measured, and it's closer to a Medium. Here are the measurements (it will appear in the shop tonight at about 7 pm EST):

      *17 1/2" / 44.5 cm shoulder seam to shoulder seam
      *41" / 104.25 cm bust
      *40" / 101.75 cm waist
      *armholes measure 20" / 50.75 cm in circumference at shoulder seams
      *22" / 56 cm shoulder seam to end of cuff
      *28" / 71.25 cm top center back collar seam to bottom hem

    4. Oh great! Thank you! I'll take a look...

  2. Bloody LOVE plaid! ALL year round, dammit! X

  3. I've been naughty have been keeping a couple of things for myself lately too. But… we should spoil ourselves sometimes! :)

    And I'm with Helga. Love plaid all year round.


  4. I love that coat as well, with those cool zippers on the pockets. The Black watch is wonderful as well. I love fall clothes!

  5. The Mulberry Dress is fabulous! I added Small Earth Vintage to blogs I read on my new blog, & I'd love if you could check it out!
