This weekend was wet. When it wasn't raining, the heavy fog and humidity provided a nice, constant mist-- it was beautiful, and so welcomed for a relaxing weekend. It all started with early morning treasure hunting and spring cleaning, followed by a heavy dose of friend time. I've decided Sunday naps with the windows open are mandatory. 

On Saturday I met with Isha from Daylily Weddings. We're working together to style a woodsy, outdoor wedding using 6 petals vintage pieces. There's lots of beautiful ideas and we had so much fun visualizing the setting with the bride-to-be. I love working with other creatives. Very exciting!

Now that it's getting warmer, it's time to go bike riding. Last weekend Jay and I rode bikes through Seashore State Park, stopped at an epic yard sale, traveled down to the Oceanfront for lunch and then back home...about 20 miles. You never know what you'll come across on the streets and in the woods! We have a city park close by too that's on the Elizabeth River. It'll be the perfect place for many picnic dinners to watch the sunset.

Lots and lots of beautiful vintage to come...

Happy weekend!

::vintage style // dear golden::

Thursday, 22 March 2012

My favorite places to shop online for vintage is Dear Golden. Hands down. Each pieces makes me want to drive straight up to Michigan and try on all the beautiful wears. The dresses, blouses and shoes are in great condition and most very wearable, not so much for this gypsy eye-candy.

There's so much to love about vintage clothing. Dresses that show off your waist, flirty lace details, the perfection of color palettes and so lady-like. I've been collecting some vintage dresses, shoes, bags and accessories for an extension to the 6 petals shop. This weekend I'll be photographing that collection. There's still some work to be done before the debut, but it's gonna be cool. Promise.

Lately, I've been feeling at bit unstylish. I blame winter. But now that it's officially Spring, here's to getting out of this funk and into creative dressing. I'd rather be wearing these looks...

Monday, 19 March 2012

My friend, Kelsie, loves having little get-togethers at her quaint vintage shop in Norfolk. This time it was a tea party, fit with mixed-matched vintage tea cups, homemade cookies + treats, and of course her little boutique filled with vintage goodness. And music. There's always a bench for local singer/songwriters to play their heart out. 

The shop was bursting with spring colors. So many pretty details in her shop and no lack of florals. Fine by me.

There's something mesmerizing about that lady up there– the hair, big eyes, sparkly top. Whenever I see boxes of vintage photos at antique stores, I must look...at all of them. Seeing what they wore, their facial expressions and black + white photos just seem more elegant. And that room, perfection.

After a busy last week and eventful weekend, I'm finally sitting down to post. Hi.

How cool is this wearable foods series by Yeonju Sung -- constructive art forms made with food. Awesome colors naturally mixed with subtle prints. I'd rock a radish dress.

I finally got a juicer and I can't wait to try new recipes. The green juice was on tonight's menu. Anyone have a 'oh-my-you-need-to-try-this' concoction?


::window seating charts // ruffled::

Remember the window seating charts I created for Devon? Well, her beautiful ranch wedding was featured on Ruffled blog. The images are incredible, thanks to Stone Crandall Photography, and tons of vintage items. She and her now husband spent a year gathering old wooden crates, antique spoons and other treasures for her big day. She rallied a handful of Etsy artists to complete the finishing touches.

Are you getting hitched? Need some windows? email me for more info.

Add these to the {wish} list. The perfect ring for any finger. When in doubt, get one of each.

It's been a while since I had some retail therapy. That's a good thing though, because I have student loans to pay. Hey, small private liberal arts college, I blame you.

I came across this graphic from here, but couldn't find anymore info. It has my name written all over it.
