Sunday stuff

Happy day-after Halloween! I hope you all had a great weekend. B and I definitely had our share of fun and we're off to yet another get together here in a minute, but I wanted to share my most recent purchase with because... it has to do with POLAR BEARS!

How I ever decide to purchase anything online when there are an incredible amount of cute, wearable options is beyond me; however, purchasing this particular dress was a hands-down easy decision.
Arctic Charm Dress $54.99

via ModCloth
Do you SEE the polar bears??? The idea that these lovely creatures are slowly dying and will one day be extinct absolutely breaks my heart. I'm not being dramatic here, the loss of these beautiful animals is a tragedy and huge sign that this Earth is NOT ok.
Anyway, back to the dress - I really can't recall seeing another dress quite like this (and as you all know, shopping for dresses is kind of a passion).
On another note, as busy as this weekend's been, I'm really excited about adding some new necklaces to the shop. Here's the latest piece:
Restrained...vintage, black gem necklace $18



via my shop
Come to think of it, this necklace would really work with that dress...how's that for coming full circle?

That dress is fantastic!

I keep thinking about how weird it will be to tell children years from now how there were bears that blended in with the snow, and it will be like we're talking about dinosaurs or something. Also fireflies are going extinct too -- imagine not seeing those magical insects in the summer, or trying to explain to children how bugs used to light up all over the sky. It's so sad.

A super dress, indeed! So is the necklace...the pendant is large enough to be noticed but does not overpower....yummy! ox

For sure it is a beautiful dress, and the new necklace is so simple but so elegant and pretty. It is very sad about polar bears, such handsome creatures, such beautiful planet... :O(

That dress is amazing--like a ski lodge sweater, but an adorable dress. And I'm very much in need of that necklace. Lovely!

Rachel said...

Absolutely love that necklace. And such a fun dress.

that dress is adorable! and we cannot lose polar bears. it just seems their shaky status is the biggest sign (of about a million recent signs) that we have got to get our shit together or we will lose EVERYTHING. ugh! it all gets me in a huff!

and now i need to visit your store and see what all you have been up to!
