“Everything I buy is vintage and smells funny. Maybe that’s why I don’t have a boyfriend.”

I stumbled upon that Lucy Liu quote online today and couldn’t stop laughing. Well, maybe I’m exaggerating. It was more of a snicker, and it was quite short.

Anyway! Happy Friday guys and dolls. As I sit here sipping my Ice Blended White Mocha beverage, I can’t help but be thankful to be indoors today. It has been around 100 degrees everyday this week. Too hot to handle, fo sho.

My lovely Aunt who lives in the beautiful city of Pasadena emailed me with this neat blog to check out today:

They have two etsy shops: one that sells vintage fabric (pintucksew), and one that sells apparel (pintuckstyle). I was already planning a thrifting adventure tomorrow, so looking through their shop is definitely inspiring my wish list.

I absolutely love the fabric that you see at the beginning of this entry. I wish they had more than half a yard. Wouldn’t that be adorable as a short, elastic banded skirt? I wonder if you’re getting the same visual as I am, and if you are, isn’t it cute!? Haha. Also, this dress is great, but would look ridiculous on me, as I have broader shoulders. But I love it anyway.  I would probably remove the sleeves.

That’s all for now. Keep cool out there, kittens!

Me too! Isn’t the smell oddly comforting? It’s also the smell of “good deals.: Hehe.

Thank you for the wonderful mention here in your blog!
In case you are serious about that floral fabric, there is more–we just list by 1/2 yards since that’s what many crafters want to buy.
If you decide to buy anything from either shop, just remind me who you are, and I’ll give you a 15% discount (remind me of that too)–and I think everything smells great, cause I wash what I can before it goes up for sale.

thanks again, Jen
