I cannot believe its here already. At work I have to initial and date next to everything that I review, so I have written October 1st probably 100 times already today, and its so strange! I am sorry to sound like a broken record, but September just flew by. October means that my parents visit, R's birthday, and Halloween, so I think its going to be a pretty awesome month!
Dress: Vintage- For Sale in the Shop!
Purse & Scarf: Vintage/ Thrifted
Collar Necklace: RomweSpeaking of R, he kindly took the pictures for me last Friday during my lunch break. He also "kindly" pointed out that I looked like Ronald McDonald with my red plaid shoes and mustard tights, but I don't care- I like it! When I wear something that is black and white like this vintage gingham dress, I can't help but want to pair it with colorful accessories. I have been wanting to take pictures at the gorgeous St. Julien hotel for months, and when I spotted the red and yellow umbrellas while biking past it on my way to work, I knew that it would be the perfect spot for this outfit. You guys all know how much I like matching my outfits to the backdrop!
In other news, I got the most exciting sale ever for my vintage shop last Friday. The girl ordered four pieces at once, which I was excited about to begin with because that is my biggest order thus far. Then, when her transaction went through, I looked at the shipping address, and it was going to the Dolce & Gabbana headquarters in Milan! I completely understand that its probably just a personal order, but nevertheless, to get a big order going to one of the biggest names in the history of fashion pretty much made my whole week. If you follow me on instagram (@braidedbandit), then you saw the packages I shipped out this weekend. You can bet I was even more careful and nervous while inspecting and wrapping those babies! It really just goes to show how the internet can bring amazing connections and opportunities - I have really loved getting to ship things that I have found and personally adore to lovely ladies all over the world!
Anyway, I hope you are having a great start to the week and cheers to October!
