The most anticipated issue of the year...

...yup, the Vogue September issue is on-line. Woo hoo!!!! Love the ads, the trends, the styling!! So much fun! Have yet to find the hard copy in my neighborhood.

On a side note, yesterday I found the most amazing shoes in a little thrift tucked in the middle of nowheresville, Alberta! Kids and I did a day trip and I scored 2 pairs of peeptoe 1940's shoes and some sizzlin' red patent mod shoes. Pics to come soon!!

Dusting the cobwebs off the old blog here. With Fall just around the corner, I am gearing up for back to school kidlets and more time to do other stuff that I enjoy!

A little peak of some of this Wednesday's ebay auctions for your perusal.

Love the autumn colors here - just like an oil painting. It's sort of a wiggle - bubble dress!! So sweet!

A fab 70's vintage Lanvin shirt dress in great print!! Love the op art feel of this black and white material. Easy to wear. Great size 14 too!

Another Lanvin. This one is silk and has a lovely birds and flowers print on pale gray. Great hip detailing with teeny tiny pleats. Size 8 - but generous!

I heart these boots!! Vintage 80's at it's best. Lipstick red suede, metal toe kicks, belts & buckles and slouchy and pirate-y!! Size 5

Ultra hot!! Tan suede and leather. Ankle pixie boots with straps - size 7.5!!
