Well, the etsy shop has been re-stocked ... I'm amazed that I managed to do this entire update whilst manually focusing my camera ... it took 2x longer then normal to photograph - but I'm realllllly happy about my newfound photo location. Taking photos in my apartment was really bumming me out. I live in a courtyard facing apartment and in the Summer time when the light is at its brightest - I have about an hour and a half of good light each day. Now that the days are darker my photo time is cut down to about 30 minutes, if that. But, then I realized that this little window area just 15 feet down the hall from my door is perfect! And the light is nice all afternoon!

Wow! I absolutely adore that silk wrap dress - every detail is scrumptious - but, alas, it's not my size! Oh how sad.
