Things that I like but did not buy. I am usually a careful spender and only buy things that I actually need, will use right now and are well made. Buying things for Emma also takes priority because she needs to replace her clothing and shoes all the time as she keeps growing. All this doesn’t stop me from looking at everything, oogling all the shoes and trying on pretty vintage dresses. ^_^
I love trying on vintage dresses and this one actually fit really well. I wasn’t crazy about the frilly collar bit (and tucked it in) but otherwise it was lovely. I like to wear dresses on warm weather days because I don’t like shorts.
I have been spying string of pearl plants like this one lately and think that are so neat looking. I would love to hang one in our living room and this type of plant is on my list.
Every time that I visited the San Francisco MoMA I saw this backpack made by Baggu. I just love the red type on the grid pattern.
Oh, this red coat was so cute! It was made by Sears and weighed about fifteen pounds. The size was large on me and it had large square buttons that did not fit in the button holes. If I lived where it snowed it would be well used but alas Oakland will never get that cold.
Things that I did buy: a Sleepy Jones pajama top (thrifted), a J Crew navy wool/cashmere sweater (thrifted), slippers for Emma from Kamik, a long sleeved Bon-Ton shirt for Emma (thrifted) and furry fleece coats and underthings from Uniqlo.
