Shop Update and Little Treats for Myself

Tonight has been a relaxing night of sitting down with my computer and listing my Etsy Shop updates for Dethrose Vintage. While my life has a lot of changes going on, I am trying to stay grounded and relaxed. It's not an easy task, considering anxiety runs in my family:} I have way too much to do to let all this interfere with a busy life. Very soon I will be taking 4 days to go see my family in Southern Illinois. It could not come soon enough honestly. I need to quite and serene atmosphere to put all my worries and over thinking to rest. It's also such an inspiring area to visit as well. Old farm houses, gorgeous farm land and state parks to roam through. Antiques galore and little vintage sales here and there.

I can't wait to take some more photos while I'm there! I am going to get some great accessories from the 40's while I am visiting and I will be sure to take pictures this time around. Last time I didn't take advantage of the scenery, the time just always slips by me so fast while I'm there.

Life Changing...

Fall is here. It's crazy how fast a year went by. I have been doing this little blog for a little over a year. It's still not what I want it to be but I need time for that. Hopefully that will be sooner than later, time will soon be on my side. I want to do so much for this little bloggy blog. And this weekend will be a great start. As I told ya a couple weeks ago, I will be doing a huge photoshoot for Dethrose with a super talented group of friends. This is something that will show so much of 4 different takes on vintage fashion. Soon you will all see.

For now, here is a shop update. Expect more and more of these frequently. I am here making a solid oath to my customers and readers that Dethrose will no longer be neglected. These new items are my favorites by far in the store right now. Please enjoy as it is breaking my heart to let these items go....

Among other ladies that are truly influential to me.

A Dreamy Dress

I always frequent my favorite shops and blogs daily. Mostly for inspiration and to check and see what my fellow vintage ladies are up to. I always bookmark items they may have for sale, hoping to snatch them up quick. More often than not, my favorite items are bought 2 seconds before I hit that add to cart button. But this time I lucked out and time was on my side! I was shopping in the lovely Quincy's Etsy shop, Q's Daydream, when I came across these amazing burgundy Eitenne Aigner boots. I quickly emailed Quincy asking to hold them for me and before I knew I came across the most dreamy dress. I mean this dress was meant for me to own. It was slightly too big but I knew I could make it work and eventually have it fitted to me. I mean, you know what it is like to want something so bad that no matter the size you will find a way to make it work. That is precisely what I did. I made it fit and I wore it today and felt amazing in it. 

I always shop Q's before any of the girls I "know" through this lil ol' blogging world because we have very similar interests in our style and old movie stars. Quincy is a beautiful quirky girl hailing from Nashville and if you don't follow her blog I suggest you start! Go here! Her obsession with Elvis is too cute and her posts are always an entertaining read. I hope to put together a little interview of some my favorite bloggers and she will be one of the firsts for sure! 

Here are some photos from today of this dress I fell for. And what a better place to snap photos of this dress  than in front of my Bird wall! Sooooo Cute, I think it is becoming one of my favorite parts of my new apartment! Photos of the boots too this week!

**And notice how long my hair is getting!! I'm so excited to have long hair again...
