I swear, it's so easy for me to turn into a slug, and I by this I mean .. I end up with absolutely no motivation for anything. But, the ever so lovely Rhiannon of Liebemarlene Vintage always, always seems to have a knack for keeping me inspired! That girl, I don't even know where to start...! Whether it's her perfectly pieced outfits, her ebay store (I swear, I always want everything she lists for sale!) or her blog (one of my favorites) ... this girl doesn't stop! She always seems to have something new up her sleeve and is definitely living the dream life - living in the charm of the South and filling her days with trips to the thrift store for beautiful vintage pieces to sell online. I really only wish that we lived closer to each other because I would love to run around the city with her!
I asked Rhiannon to do a swap a long, long while ago - and I'm soo happy we did! It was so much fun shopping for her and I couldn't be more happy with everything she sent! And you know, I really don't know how she did it, but everything she sent fits so well!!!!
I have this lovely little summer outfit I put together around the perfect blouse she sent... which, I think she must have read my mind, because I've been on the hunt for something just like this! It reminds me of something Libby would wear in Carnivale. (yes, cheesy HBO show - but with the most perfect costume/set design) Oh, and the little bracelet resting on the bag is so precious with little bananas hanging off the chain!
And then there's the lovely little embroidery, which really goes quite nicely with the others!
I put this skirt on immediately! It fits so, so perfectly, and I can't wait to wear it to work tomorrow. And let me just say, that these poor shoes were in a rough state before I received the package. You see, the bows on them fell off a while ago and I thought that the things were put into their box for good... however, Rhiannon enclosed these white bow shoe clips that fixed the situation perfectly!!!!
My boyfriend suggested I write one of those silly little name poems to say thanks.. you know the kind you do in grade school where you spell the name out and put an adjective next to each letter.... I will have to think of just the right adjectives and enclose it in the second box I'm sending since I forgot a few things, and found a few more!
In the mean time.... Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!
