I work at a little boutique called "Clothes in the Past Lane". We are located on Main Street right next to the University of Delaware. It's a pretty nifty shop- chock full of both vintage and new clothing and accessories. We are always on the lookout for cool, unique items that no one else will have! Like this pink hat- rockin'!
I wish hats like these were still everyday attire. My favorites are ones like this from the 40s and 50s that are covered in fabric flowers, lace, and leaves. The details are amazing!
Here I am with our mannequin, Bertha. Yes, we name our mannequins (hey, it helps us keep them straight!) This is little Bertha, we also have big bertha (so named for her voluptuous shoulders and rear) and wire bertha (made of wire).
This is a curated collection of some of our vintage jewelry- we all take turns decorating the displays. You can probably guess I had a ton of fun with the rainbow case on the left. Our other themes right now are spring pastels, and black and white!
A pair of floral jeans that I should own by now!
A little corner of the shop for my little jewelry line "The Lemon Moth" with a small collection of moth and butterfly necklaces and jewelry.
A lovely collection of vintage animal pins that I set out on Saturday. Hope you enjoyed the little tour!
And Sunday....what a crazy day! Since it was my one day of the weekend where I could actually get things done I sort of went into overdrive. My checklist for today was waaaaay too long, but somehow I squeezed most everything in. Getting to the gym, getting last minute gifts and groceries, making cupcakes, cleaning up my closet (didn't get done, haha) visiting Daniel's mom and mine, taking photos and updating the blog! Whew! Bedtime is next on that checklist! ;) I hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day, though! I had a great time seeing my Mom and spending time with the family. I have a friend out in Washington who is hoping to be a mom very soon- (she is still in labor) and I am so anxious to hear of the announcement for her baby boy!! Hang in there, Lydia! <3
It was beautiful outside today! Just that picture perfect weather, you know? Unfortunately, most of the sun had gone before we were able to get photos, but just enough that we could capture some good ones. I had to take advantage of the beautiful bright pink flowers that were sitting all sprawled out on the grass here. My parents have HUGE azaleas in the yard in all different pinks, purples, and white. It made for a pretty backdrop and great grass shots!
I LOVE the pattern on this 1960's dress. What could be better than monochromatic strawberries, right? If it looks familiar, you're not crazy. This dress inspired a strawberry painting I did a few years ago- and it sits on my living room wall and has made an appearance or two on the blog! I have to give high kudos to my husband Daniel because he hemmed this for me today while I was baking cupcakes. Amazing, yes? This man is more handy with a sewing machine than I am, I need to work on that.
