Ah, the weekend... Saturday, Chantal came over to model some of the goods for the store and it was such fun and she looked (and was) terrific!
I had never tried the dress below on, but when I saw it on Chantal I just had to! It perfectly fills the gap in my wardrobe where a semi-dressy, conservative item should be. I love the shape, and of course brown and navy are an irrepressibly classy combo. I've got a nice, "luggage brown" skinny belt to pair with this and the heels in the pic.
That evening, I visited my Cincinnati friends and folks. My friend Jenn, my Dad and I went thrifting Sunday morning in the vintage mecca that is the Village Thrift of Newport, KY. My Dad was so fun to try things out with! His favorite suggestion is a "sash".
I left with a few of the Seventeen magazines I have stashed in the parents' house from the mid 1990s, as well as one I have from 1982 (featuring a 19-year-old Whitney Houston's advice on dyeing your eyelashes)! Scans to come! I'm excited about the 1994 issues especially, featuring lots of terrific geek chic looks...
Here I am today, creepin' in my man's basement as I take flat measurements for the incoming dresses! Trench, mildly Mayim Bialik reminiscent blouse, and penny loafters are vintage and thrifted, the black skinny jeans are from Urban Outfitters.
