Ending of Summer

A few more pics from my Summer photo project, including my little tiger

I always squint my eyes when I look at Ferris wheels, so I took a picture of how I wanted to see it




and trees that did not survive the hottest Summer I can remember

Shop My Closet

A good bit of things loaded into the Simple Shop right now. A new outlet for me to get rid of totally loveable but barely worn items I have stashed away. I haven't even unloaded my Fall/Winter wardrobe yet! Above are listed now or about to be in a few minutes! Enjoy and check out SellSimply!

Who's that girl?

I picked up all three of these dresses at one of my favorite local thrifts. Each one is handmade and built with lovely details. All incorporate a ruffle near the bust, self covered belts, fitted waists and a-line skirts. I believe these all came from the same talented seamstress who made these dresses in the 50's and 60's with a pension for 30's and 40's details. The fabrics are all lightweight with beautiful patterns.
Here's the kicker though, I purchased these dresses over a 3 month spread! So I am hoping to find a few more from this wonderful lady, whoever she is.

My Favorite Part

Loved seeing recent client Mary Van Notes all gussied up in this awesome 1960s Halter from the shop.
She wore it perfectly if I might say to a Hawaiian themed birthday party of a friend named Lou.  Lou WOW indeed! To see more wonderful vintage outfits and to visit or join her blog click here------> Mary Van Notes

Behind the scenes~ Wedding

 Last weekend I had the pleasure of being a secondary photographer at a friends wedding. It was my job to get behind the scenes, while more formal photos with a much more professional photographer, were being done. So, while the bride was getting her pictures taken, I was hanging out the the guys. If the guys were having formal photos taken then I hung out with the kids and so on.

Picture of the cake before the cutting, check. Boutonnieres and bouquets before wilting, check.  Cute kids with cute curls before crying, check. I love all of the candids here and even with two photographers I feel like there is so much we may have missed, but as you can see we all had fun!
