Shop Preview: Fall Cozy, Fall Fancy

From Sasha

Well, ladies, I am about to hit the shops here today, then off on weekend adventures-- but before I go, I want to give you a preview of what will be coming to our store early Monday morning! As usual, if you have questions about anything, hit me up via Comment or Convo and WE'LL TALK! Okay, here's a wee slice of the yummies:

Cozy-coze 70s wool cardigan!

Victorian princess or new waver? You decide! Hello LAVENDER!

Fall is a great time for a new bag... especially a 70s leather patchwork one! I am obsessed with patchwork lately. Call me a hippie.

And while we are talking accessories, let's not forget shoes. Check these killer-diller 70s tall leather Campus boots, in size 5.5:

Softest ever black velvet dress... the kind of dress that makes you perfectly fine with the fact that the weather is getting colder:

It's cocktail party time, ladies (I left Zouzou in this one for ya'll):

IMG_7557  

This dress must have lived a fun life before I found it, cause it made me feel va-va-va-voom-eriffic when I modeled it!:

IMG_7567  

Gorgeous 70s interpretation of a 1920s gown... this one is for tall, curvy gals, so if you have been waiting for something that's not teenager-tiny, check this honey out!:

Okay, I'm outtie! Hope you all are having a Fabulously Freaky Friday!

Shop Preview: Hippie Chic and Bundly Fall Goodness

Today's photo shoot took place right back in My Big Backyard. It's changed so much in the past month! The sweet peas and grasses are almost completely dry, and there are tons of baby frogs hopping around under foot. Yessums, baby frogzums! They really are that cute.

Check out these cute dresses I found! Soft and pretty, my two favorite things:

And skirts! This one has elephants on it. I love an elephant!:

Maximum Woodstock Babe:

A gorgeous wool skirt from Saks Fifth Avenue (thank to my mom for this fur headpiece-- I snaked it from her closet last time I was visiting! It is going to come in handy all winter long):

IMG_6897

And yes, it is almost capelet time... and there is nothing I like better than a great capelet! In red plaid, hel-LO.

IMG_6882

The "yeah, my capelet rocks, whattaya want to do about it?" face. Somewhat silly outfit thanks to early morning "idea" fest... but I decided to go with it. When we first started an Etsy shop, I asked for a critique on the forums, and one girl told us to quit with the weird accessorizing. I was hurt but took it to heart... a little too much, I decided. I am weird. I can't hide it from you anymore.

And an awesome fitted leather jacket. Here I am trying to look like a Badass:

IMG_6909

Tough! Grrrr! But wait... who got in the picture?

IMG_6914

It's Zouzou, my little tree-climber! Zouzou is so happy this week because the stray cat we were taking care of got adopted (by one of our Etsy customers!) (Seriously!) and now no one is eating his food and muscling him out of the best nap spots. He was proud as a lion on the savannah today. These ones are for my dad, who always asks about the cats, and any other Cat Fanciers out there... and my apologies for my self-indulgence:

On the hunt!

I spy with my kitty eye...

Well, wait a minute.

What was I doing again?

***My tummy is full of my honey's Tuna Mac, and I am going to try to upload these all tonight to the shop. If you want a Reserve, hit me up!***
