I am pretty sure that a few months ago, I stumbled across vintage utopia.
Justin, Felix, and I were driving around...I am pretty sure we were probably desperate to get a nap out of Felix...when Justin remembered that our friend had mentioned a vintage consignment shop that was near by. I have an awesome husband that encourages me to shop for myself...I.love.him.
We drove up to the store (an old converted Victorian house...GORGEOUS!) and I was already super excited...I was not disappointed when we got inside! Room after room of amazing finds, dresses, sweaters, aprons, purses, shoes, hats, scarves, pants, tops, coats, gloves, jewelery ....and on the list goes! Just plain amazing!
Here are some of the finds I made these last few months...I will post about the vintage aprons I got there another time....they are so cute, they deserve their own post!
Here is a sweater that I have been wearing daily since I got it last week...
I LOVE the colour of it...the photo does not do it justice! And the neck is super cute.
This top I love too....it's just so friendly...and very comfy!
Another flowy top (I am a big fan)...the sleeves are adorable and the buttons are just lovely with the detail...
This store has definitely become a fast favourite of mine!
Feel free to check out their facebook page and if you live in the area, go check them out in person!
I have personally never been to a 1st birthday (before this one)...well...other than my own I guess....but that doesn't count, because I can't remember it ; ) ...and this one was pretty darn cool if I do say so myself....and I do! Someone decided that they did not want to miss any little bit of their birthday and decided the best way to do that was not to nap all day. Despite some crankiness, the day truned out to be lovely. Not much was consumed of the blueberry & banana birthday cake....not because of taste....but because the birthday boy was still getting over a very bad stomach virus from a couple of days prior. The birthday ring that will be brought out for every birthday from now on in our little family, was a big hit! Top the day off with a first "swim" in a big pool and all in all you have yourself a really good first birthday.
