shirt: forever21  skirt: vintage, will be in shop  bag/shoes: thrifted

i have made the decision to open up an etsy shop. i am a ball of nerves & excitement all at the same time.
i will be trying to wear a few pieces here n' there that will be going into the shop.
i have always been a visual person & feel it helps sometimes to see someone else wear/style a piece.  (example, this yellow skirt)
thank you to all the lovely readers who gave me encouragement to start this shop.
i can not wait to share my little shop of vintage teasures with you all in a few weeks.

ps. Callie, a sweet blogger asked me a few questions..pop over here to see my answers.

  5. An etsy shop sounds lovely!! Cant wait to check out all your sweet items! And I agree with you - I always love to see how people style an item rather than just see an item on a hanger.

  25. I'm sure it will be a lovely shop, and I look forward to getting a gander at your wares! I do hope you'll continue doing outfit shoots without store items as well though. Exclusively store-based blogs kind of turn me off...
