oh my, miss petulia

petulia's folly is one on my favorite stores in the city. it's no surprise that i went right over before my hair appointment to check out their stuff! my favorites are the alexander wang tee collection and rachel comey shoes. oh and make sure you check out their jewelry collection when you go. i have gotten quite a few house ware items from them too. i adore the stuffed characters they make. i hope one day i can buy one of my very own.

with sprinkles, please!

it's been a crazy week, so i decided to treat myself after all the work i've been doing! i can't rest too long, because i am finally getting a hair cut at 3 and then sorting through fall vintage to give to grid magazine for their fall fashion shoot. i have to get 4 looks together by wednesday. wednesday night i will be packing for my 2 week vacation to ITALY!! more about that later... and on thursday i'll be jet set!

vintage connection will remain open while i'm gone and will continue to get new vintage by the week!!
