  • Vintage Finds

    This is Katie and Elise. 

    Prepare yourself for several more posts about thrift and vintage shopping: it's one of our favorite hobbies!

    These are a few items we found over the summer that we absolutely love.

    Starting with this tiny polka dot top, and basket bag

    Next we have a ruffled white top and vintage handbag

    Moving on to this dope black 90's skirt.

    And finally, there's nothing like a little shock of yellow to wake you up in the morning. Loving this 80's blouse forever and always. 

  • Yellow, Orange, and Talbot's.

    This is Elise. 

    This is the story of what were for sure bridesmaid's shoes in the 90's and a never-color-palette: orange and yellow. There are two colors I've sworn to stay away from in the past, but here we are. 

    One thing I've learned after years of trying to dress well (basically ever since I woke up at age 13 to the fact that cargo shorts weren't cutting it anymore) is to not write something off as a "never". There will always be a context in which a color, cut, style, or fabric will speak to you, so never say never. 

    That being said, here's to opening my heart up to the possibilities of orange. 

  • A Subtle Spookery

    This is Katie.

    Halloween is upon us, my friends. And while I don't go full carnival on my home, I do appreciate the subtler spooks. Accenting my "non-seasonal" decor with bat stickers and googly eyes, a few strategic wheat stalks, the haunting creep of sunset, and the horrors of home renovation, and I'm set. Actually, if you are thinking of doing any kind of gut job on your home, I would highly recommend this time of year. Nothing says "Halloween" like exposed walls, dust, and stripped paint. I have chills running up my spine just thinking about it.
