Agriculturalist


This dress is oooh soooo divine! I would have already snatched it up if I didn't have such "womanly" hips. I need one of you to buy it and hang out with me so I can see it in action!

on the water


As the workweek begins, I find myself often day dreaming of the Great Gatsby lifestyle. 
Today I am especially wishing I was on some waterfront in a white lightweight dress with a lemonade.

Thrifty Thursday! five pieces for $65!!!!!


Holy smokes! This whole outfit only comes to $65.00 all thanks to Forever21! 
I'm sure everyone has noticed that the majority of my Thrifty Thursday outfits come from Forever21. They are always my "go to" for inexpensive trendy outfits. 

If you are a DC gal like me, you are in luck! Forever21 is opening it's new location at the old Woodies building this Saturday. The first 400 customers in line receive a free gift card and with this coupon get 10% off! WooHoo!

I love how these all come together for a completely comfortable and casual ensemble but are still totally chic!

Steampunk is A-OK!


Today I want to give a shout out to the Steampunk movement in the Goth scene. While the goofy gadgets and goggles are beyond my appreciation, I am so excited to see ladies dressing in the more demure fashions of the victorian period. It's a thrill to see corsets used properly (as an undergarment!) rather than out front and center boobs and fat oozing out everywhere.

W.a.s.h.i.n.g.t.o.n. baby DC!


One of the loveliest things about living in the Nation's Capital is the trees. Whether spring has just sprung or its July 4th, there is always one tree or another flowering around town. It makes the walk or bike ride to work in the morning extra pleasant!

Coming Soon!?!?


I sometimes get so very frustrated with online vintage stores. My major pet peeve is sites that leave up images of things that have already been sold! Ugh, Don't show me what I can't have! Pet peeve number two is sellers who don't steam their garments before they take pictures. It hurts my heart to see lovely vintage garments all wrinkled up. You can buy a garment steamer from Macy's for less than $60, It's totally worth the investment. Getting to my point, my number three pet peeve is "Coming Soon" 
They have the garment, they've taken pictures and measurements of the garment, they have posted the garment online, but no price! What a tease....
