Saving up


You know when you see something you really like, you really really like, and you have to blink a few times just to clear your eyes and make sure you are seeing what you are seeing? Yeahhhh, well I did that when I saw this coat. It's everything I love! It's gray! It's got a high collar. And it's vaguely, ever so vaguely Star Wars style! It's at JCrew and I am pretty sure I am now saving up to buy it.


Today I am wearing one of those dresses I would never usually wear because it needs ironing after washing. BUT, I have a stand-up steamer now so I don't have to neglect all the wonderful garments that will need ironing. I recommend a steamer if you also do not like ironing, it has saved my home from "to be ironed" piles which tend to get very high. Also today you get a photo of Ella who always hangs out when I shoot photos for the shop, once a bin has enough room for her, she jumps right in.

heathered gray dress - thrifted
belt - thrifted
shoes - Aerosoles (yes, yes, they are! and thereby comfy!)

looks like ella is hanging around in hopes that you'll include her in your photos shoots...ya know, the stylist or make-up artist, who secretly hopes the model will fall ill and she can step in...

the coat is gorgeous.

love the dress, too!

seriously lauren, you look good in everything! ;)

Ah yes, the J.Crew coat. I believe they have always set women's hearts a flutter. I had a J.Crew pea coat in college and wore it until it fell apart. The one you posted is a beauty!

Thanks doll,
