Plaid and Stripes

Plaid and stripes

Things have been quite slow around these parts for the past few weeks, I have been so busy with work things and helping out my hurt man at home. It rained all day yesterday so we stayed in and made some tasty  treats for eating on the couch while watching tv shows. I find it very hard to get all dressed up during these times because I always feel like hiding indoors and not coming out till next Spring.  But today I made it out and made quite the show for all the walking by pedestrians in my neighborhood. Every time I wear this vintage Missoni maxi skirt I get all sorts of looks. I love this skirt so much, it is like wearing a big warm blanket. I love the way the front form's a chevron and the flow of the skirt. I will never get rid of this vintage piece. Do you have a favorite piece in your wardrobe that you would never let go? 

I am taking it pretty easy peasy today, taking some much needed etsy photos for my shop, I have a special piece I handmade myself. It is very hard to find anything 60s and older lately thrift wise, so I decided to take matters in my own hands and make some 60s yeye inspired dresses. I use deadstock vintage fabrics and add a little me in the mix, every piece is one of a kind. Keep your eyes peeled this week!
