Etsy Success

It's been nearly another month. I am no good at this. Although, I am hoping that the warmer weather + school ending will yield more dresses in the etsy store and more blog posts.

I just returned from a relaxing week back home in good ol' Kingston, MA for spring break. While my friends explored Turkey I lounged with my pups, hung out with my boyfriend and the fam and made cupcakes with my long lost best friend, Ali. I listed a couple of items right before I left for break and all three sold in a matter of days!

I know it's sort of old news now, but I must share this lovely pink searsucker open-back dress that is going to a lucky gal in Mississppi.

It's been awhile!

Haven't posted in a few weeks...
Back to school now. Things pick up as they always do!

I am clearing out the shop slowly but surely. Most things are on sale so take a peek!
I have a few new dresses but I think I will wait another month or so, when the weather feels more appropriate for 1960s backless seasucker dresses!

Until then, here are some lovely hand-pained post cards and photographs I have been collecting in a folder for a while. A few my teacher forwarded to me, and others I have collected from other's blogs.

Fried Green Tomatoes

I just watched Fried Green Tomatoes for the first time with my mother.
Other than the great plot and talented cast, I was mostly won over by the 1930's dresses that Ruth (Mary Louis Parker) wore throughout the film.

Take a peek...

I couldn't find a lot of photographs where her lovely frocks where properly showcased, but you get the idea. Not to mention her beautiful hair. How did they do that?!

First Semester Portfolio

Strange to be home for Christmas break already. The semester really flew by..but anyway, this is what I did in the last  dozen weeks!

I have been looking at a lot of Lewis Carroll's photographs of young girls lately (yes, the author of Alice in Wonderland, for those of you who did not know he was also a photographer!)

His work has been a big inspiration to my work recently. I'll be posting my final portfolio here soon- I just finished making eight 17 x 22" prints for my final critique. The large size intimidated me at first, but it's been so amazing seeing my work that large!

So as I mentioned before, my boyfriend and I dressed as Jack and Rose Dawson for Halloween. I was really excited with how we looked once everything was all put together. I must admit, I feel as though I had a bit of Halloween over-kill this year, I spent the three nights leading up to the actual holiday celebrating it with various events. Regardless it was lovely to have the boyfriend up for the actual day of, and he even spent an extra night so we could see the final installment of Saw in 3-D.

But now! I am officially done with Halloween. I took down the cobweb and jack-o-lantern decorations and even swept away the actual cobwebs in the apartment. I was thrilled to log on to my favorite craft blog (www.oneprettything.com) and see this on the first page:

Woo-hoo! I am so ready to start thinking about Thanksgiving (and Christmas!)
