The 'ol shop has been updated today! And if I do say so myself, there's some nice things in there! It's warm and the windows are all open and I'm excited for lazy warm weather dressing days, the ones where you let the dress do the talking and all you have to do is add shoes.

This is me and one of my favorite dresses and and some of the shop's loot. Precariously hanging loot... but this is how my entire apartment is! The dress is from Bobby's ... Best length. Best color combination. Best skirt and neckline shape. I wish allll of my dresses looked like this!!!

green and gold is a favourite combo of mine also, and suits you well.

you have so many goodies in your store right now.

..i wonder if you can get that tea in australia. the tin is beautiful alone.

OH is that little polka dotted number behind you going to make an appearance in the shop too? IT LOOKS SO CUTE. Great job with the blog, I read it all the time!

mystery flight: thanks for all your sweetness!

this is the website for the tea, although it's terribly confusing!
http://www.mariagefreres.com/

you might find it available to order through another site, but if you see something you like - I could always ship it to you! the tins go for about $20-$22 here, a little expensive, but so worth the treat!

alli: thank you!! sometimes I don't know if what I post about is even very interesting to anyone else - so that's lovely to hear! and the polka dot dress will probably go up tomorrow! (although I think it might have already found a home)

Such a great blog. This post is great; I sometimes have to remind myself that I have already had oodles of iced tea & should probably have water! And that brown 'checked' dress hanging is absolutely gorgeous!

Elle said...

My grandma has that canister set in the background on your counter. I love it!!!

MissKellie said...

You look so adorable, I love the color combination of your dress! At first I thought it was a shirt and a skirt that you'd perfectly coordinated! :) And the dress next to you is pretty cute too! :D

I have to agree - jadite and iced tea ARE a perfect combo! Lovely shop editions!

alli said...

I often feel the same way, about blogging and never really being quite sure if anyone cares... But I always just tell myself to talk about what interests me, and I know you do the same! I think its more interesting that way.

Too bad about the polka dotted dress! I really loved it, and it was just my size! Although I am glad someone else is probably enjoying it right this very minute.

Keep up the great work! I plan to visit SF/LA in May and you make it look so beautiful! I want to go visit all of these places!!

I'm obsessed with your cute bangs. Do you cut them yourself? If so, any tips? I'm totally cutting in bangs tonight. Thx.
