Detail Oriented Projects & Layering Techniques (Power of a Pretty Dress Cont...)

Hello everyone out in BloggerLand!

This will be a quick outfit post <3 

Remember "Power of a Pretty Dress"?
Well, I'm still wearing that black floral sundress (shown here), but I added a tight off the shoulder blouse----you could do the same over a dress or sundress.  Just add a knit top or sweatshirt.

Handmade crochet choker also shown here.  My vintage from my childhood Rebecca heart locket shown here & my Mom's vintage heart locket I had given her years ago.

I wasn't trying to make a fist or anything, but I ended up liking the accidental picture.

I'm about to eat Burger Gang Burger Gang Philly Cheese Steak Burger and Chicken Pot Fries----info on IG here. A burger pop-up in Asheville.

I'm doing tons of organizing for work and also for little house projects.  Doing a massive closet overhaul that I'll be discussing soon as well as the importance of the secondhand shopping movements and similar ways to stay stylish while minimizing your negative impact on the environment.  There are several ladies I really admire on the forefront rn and now is the perfect time to get involved and get INSPIRED to be really fashion forward---with the future truly in mind.

Love & Light,

VISIBLE MONDAY Go VOTE!!!!!!!!!! Get Political!

My entire stock room/store is under construction.  I have to store my stock completely different and I'm having physical storage issues.  I have to reconsider how I'm going to do everything (all myself of course) and the project is daunting.  Vintage clothes are just extremely suspectible to damage and caring and storing the items isn't always easy.

In fact, a lot of things aren't easy.  We're having elections here in the US and it's critical.  Much like the environment, we are fast approaching critical mass politically.
I'm a single mom running two small businesses.
I'm very concerned for everyone around me.
It is not okay that GREED has hijacked politics, healthcare, education, spirituality, the earth itself...  It goes on.  Through systematic racism and misogyny entire lives are disregarded as nothing more than just a way for those in power to mine more for themselves.  Truly awful.

This is me earlier this week in a thrifted blue modern peasant style blouse.  I tied a black ribbon around my neck.  Blue was my fav color as a kid and I'm weirdly into mixing black and blue.

This is me Monday morning.  In my hand-me-down 80 year old cousin's blue shirt with a blue collar.
My face is kinda somber, but it's a reflection of my mood.  
The shakedown is real when things get tough and I worry about the less fortunate and vulnerable. 

PATTI is doing an amazing VISIBLE MONDAY featuring PinkCheetahVintage.

She looks so FABULOUS!!!!
And I want to peak my head out and be visible with her.
It's the most perfect Visible Monday----right b4 elections.
Go check her out <3 <3 <3

I'm proud to be political.

Love & Light, 

P.S.  I have a lot of lovely stuff to write about and share when I get sorted and I will be catching up on your posts!!!!!
