dress me up

I think I have a love-hate relationship with clothing. I could go on and on and list all the reasons why I love clothes, and why I hate them, but perhaps the most prominent one for why I sometimes can't stand them is: I have to wear them, and wearing them often makes them lose the splendour that they have while on a hanger, or while on a rack. There are so many beautiful pieces of clothing that I purchase out of sheer admiration, but that I never seem to love quite as much when they're draped on my own body. Thus, I seem to have drawer after drawer of beautiful things that never really get put to use.

These are some of the aforementioned! I adore every one of these pieces, but I simply can not figure out how to wear them and make them look flattering. I too often end up purchasing dresses or skirts or blouses (usually at thrift stores or markets, but occasionally at full retail price) that I never wear as much as I should. I hate to part with these, but I'm not sure what to do. I haven't had the heart to put them on my etsy just yet. Perhaps I'll hold on to them just a little bit longer, and will them to look lovely on me... or, if anyone is completely enamored with one of these, name your price, and perhaps I'll sell a dress or two!

Vintage lingerie and I, on the other hand, have a purely love relationship. I love scouring etsy and vintage boutiques for high-waisted lacy or silky tap pants.


On the bright side, during the large scouring/upturning of my drawers that I did this morning, I managed to finally organize my closet cohesively! I even hung up all of the blouses and skirts, in pairs, that I wear constantly. Oh, clothing. I can't help but confess to my occasional materialistic tendencies. x


  1. I love your blog. I just stumbled into it through tumblr. I saw your tumblr too. You are a darling.

    Your posts just inspired me. I'm your new fan. :P

    Also, if I can, I'll steal all of your clothes. And where are you selling your clothes? Please do link me through Tumblr (! Thanks very much.


  2. That green dress with the collar! So so so lovely.
