The snow is melting!

Well my son was sick all week last week and I was sick all week this week. But we’re feeling better now. And the big dirty snow piles are finally starting to melt away so I’m happy. I went out thrifting today and got a nice little haul. I’ll come up with some blog posts in the next week or so, I haven’t had much time since I spent the last couple weeks with a whiney sick kid demanding entertainment 24/7 and then I was pretty much useless being sick myself.

News & New in the Shop

I’m super excited because in the next few months I plan to really incorporate my art into the shop, selling upcycled vintage stuff, screen printed tees, and more. I’m also getting rid of the kids and mens sections to make room and so I can focus more on women’s. So today all of that will be going into the sale section and you’ll be able to snag it super cheap! I’ll be updating the blog and keeping you posted about all the original goodies I’ll be starting to sell and the process! 🙂

1960’s Fashion: Icon Francoise Hardy

“This is my favorite record album” Moonrise Kingdom, Wes Anderson, 2012

I can’t blame you, Suzy. Francoise Hardy’s music is great. I would best describe it as psychedelic chanteuse. But it’s more than that. And not only was her voice beautiful, she was also a major style icon. She was great looking, had awesome hair, and was basically the epitome of a chic french woman. She’s definately worth looking up to, big time.
