The Sun Will FInd You Underneath Your Skin

A couple weeks ago I went to the annual Corn Hill Arts Festival and walked around in the scorching heat trying to find something interesting to take home. I came across quite a few items that I wanted, but nothing that I could see making the purchase for, that is until I saw the booth for Excessary. They had this adorable dress that I couldn't help but walk up to. As soon as I saw the dress up close and felt the material I knew it would come handy in during a hot day. It's also based out of Rochester, which I thought was great.

Today was one of those days. 

The dress is perfectly thin, cut just right and has this adorable exposed zipper which is my favorite.

Dress: Excessary 
Blazer: Banana Republic

This is a city for not sleeping

Hi Everyone! 

I wanted to show everyone this great pairing that I stumbled across today. I love when I 'stumble' across things, I get so excited. 

Found Jeffrey Campbell Shoes through here.

Found Tea Glass Pocket Watch through here.

I have been very sad lately that I am unable to charge my battery for my camera, as I have been wearing quite a bit of my thrift finds lately. Hopefully the camera will be up and running tomorrow with some new outfit posts for you.

How is your summer going? Doing anything fun?

These are some of the favorite jewelry/accessories.

Summer Weather

I am so happy that the weather has turned around in New York and it's turning more into a shorts, skirts and dresses season that pants and sweaters! I was looking at my dresses yesterday to see what might fit for this weather. 

I stumbled upon this site and found it had some very cute summery dresses, great for a possible beach trip.

Check out more summer dresses. Also, I may be updating with some new summer dresses in the coming weeks, because there may be a beach weekend trip coming. Not coming soon enough though!

Vintage Fashion Retro

I am lacking in my party dresses, so I began my hunt for some stunning party dresses for what I hope to be a party hosting summer at the new apartment. I love those one of a kind dresses, which is why I look to vintage shops and homemade websites, such as Etsy. I stopped and awed over these dresses I found through Vintage Fashion Retro. The dress designs and prints are gorgeous, and it helps that I love Van Gogh. It is almost like a Van Gogh Le Sac Dress. I don't just want these dresses, I need them, and will get at least one!

Have a great Fourth of July!

Bird Houses

When we moved in to our new house, the front already had these pretty flowers put out by the neighbor, so we were trying to think of something else to do on the hook that hangs in the front/right side of our door. I was thinking about getting a hanging flower plant, but then this morning I was thinking having a bird house would be so nice and we could have plants on the left side of our apartment instead! I decided to look on Etsy to find some potential bird houses that I can get next week.
