song of the day: 'heaven is a place on earth' by belinda carlisle
this is another thing i bought fully intending to put in the shop, but then decided i couldn't quite part with it. it's so not me with its super bright colors and ultra girliness and all. oh well it makes me look tan and i love the buttons down the back and the flowy shorts that make it look like a dress. yep, it's a romper! so super fun! and to be completely honest, i'm not sure the buttons do indeed go up the back. the tag is back there but i am not totally convinced i'm wearing it as i should be. i don't care too much though, i prefer it like this.
do you see the hideous dark clouds behind me? yeah, it was sunny and hot all day and then i began to see these rain clouds roll in about 5:00. i hurried out to take pictures so i wouldn't lose out on my chance and about 20 minutes after this it started pouring. big time rain, i'm talking here. but the sunset was amazing! the most incredible color i've ever seen. the sky was tangerine. and it looked so beautiful against the dark of the buildings lining my street. i took a few pics on my phone but they don't do it justice. i posted it on twitter though if you're inclined to take a look.
what do you think about the new background? wood slats. i think it's pretty rad.
and thanks so much you guys for all the wonderful comments about my shop! it's funny because when you open a shop whether online or traditional, you worry about what other people will think about it. will everyone love it? hate it? think you could have done this or that better? it's hard to put yourself out there for the world to critique sometimes, especially when you put so much time and hard work into something. it's very personal, you know? so thanks for the boost of confidence! and i do wish that all of you could come by and see it and chat with me.
i'll go into more detail about stuff tomorrow probably. i kinda forgot that i wanted to talk more about it and i feel like i've used up my allotted blogging time. this is already kinda a lot to read on a monday morning. but anyhoo, thanks!! you guys are the best :)
