shop showcase: crush vintage

Crush Vintage has been on my favorites list for a long time now, and you can see why just from a quick glance at all the lace, bows, and dreamy colors. The shop is currently stocked with the perfect assortment of feminine party dresses, perfect little coats, adorable cardigans, and plenty more. I hardly need any more clothes in my life but being trapped in this storm sure does make a bit of online treasure hunting even more appealing! And lucky for me and you, Crush Vintage is offering 15% off everything in the shop using the code FANCYFINE15 through November 3rd. I've got my eye on one of the lace beauties below, what do you fancy?

Autumnal colors are my favorite colors, always. Mustard, rust, brown, burgundy, and everything in between. I found this perfect 1950's dress during my last visit to San Francisco and I couldn't resist the hue and print. I'm fully enjoying my first real Autumn on the east coast, although as I type this the entire city of Philadelphia is in a mad flurry because of the impending Frankenstorm. I will admit I'm a bit excited because it will be my first true storm experience. My family, however, keeps calling me from the west coast to make sure that I've stocked up on food and batteries. I have a feeling they are more worried than I am. I'm just disappointed that my Halloween plans this year have been a bust! Perhaps I should have a one person costume party and take advantage of all the costuming potential my wardrobe has to offer?

a wedding, part one

I love weddings. Any excuse to dress up, dance with my friends, eat delicious food, and get a bit teary eyed and sentimental! When Annalise married her Matt last weekend I was so happy to be there to celebrate with them. She was the loveliest bride (and just a bit sultry too!) and I gave my waterproof mascara a rather thorough testing. Jen, Isla, Rachel and Christina were all there looking beautiful and making me miss San Francisco something dreadful. There is another round of photos to come, mostly of us flailing around dancing, so peek back soon.
