Just listed in the shop today! The cat sweater has the original G. Fox tags still attached to it. G. Fox used to be the big department store in Connecticut, it disappeared in the early 90s. When I was growing up my best friend's dad was the vice president of the store, at least I think that was what he was, he was something really important there. One day when I was about 10 years old I got off the school bus and as I was walking home I noticed there was a black stretch limo outside of her house, I was so totally intrigued. It turned out that Muhammed Ali had stopped by to visit her dad that day. Ali had a launch party at the store for a cologne he was coming out with, her dad couldn't make it to the party because he unfortunately had cancer so Ali came by the house to say hello. It was super cool of him, I think of that every time I see a G. Fox tag.

All new in the shop! In other news I woke up yesterday to the sound of fire engines, I hear them often but half asleep I realized they were extra loud and seemed to stop right outside of my apartment. I went to the window and saw people running down the street. Then I looked out the back window in my kitchen and saw that the house two doors down was on fire! They have a lot of cars in the yard of that house all the time, when I walked by after it was over I could see the skeletons of burnt out cars, it was eerie.

Yay! Jo from Lost in the Haze is wearing a dress from my shop on her blog right now. It amazes me to see things I have sold travel all the way to the other side of the world. You can check out her blog here

All new in the shop! I took a short break tonight from listing new stuff, I just finished reading the book The Hunger Games. I borrowed it from my sister-in-law. It was so good. I couldn't stop reading it, I can't wait to get the second book in the series to start next.

New in the shop! I know it's like 0 degrees outside but that plaid romper is super cute. In other news, has anyone else watched the show Downton Abbey? Valerie told me to watch it and I finally did, I am addicted. I cry every episode, I'm very easily moved to tears. The clothing they wear on the show is also very amazing. I heard an interview with some of the actors on NPR, they said that what they wear is all reproductions of vintage clothing. I recommend the show if you haven't seen it yet.
