song of the day: 'mandy' by barry manilow
how's this for a funny memory: i remember singing this song in kindergarten. it was raining one day during recess and me and a friend were looking out the window singing with all the emotion our little 5 year old selves could feel. you see, growing up, everyone called me mandy. now, no offense to those out there who choose to go by this lovely name, because i know a couple of them, but i hated it. my grandma still calls me mandy. i let it slide cuz she's 86 and i figure she's lived a good life and while she's in great health, could probably not survive a beat down.
this dress came from a girl who brought some vintage clothes to my shop for me to buy. i love it when people come to me with stuff. i still get a great deal but i don't have to go searching. she had some fantastic pieces, like so super cool. i brought them home and tried everything on to decide what i'm keeping and what i'm selling. there is a gorgeous gunne sax dress that i can't part with so you'll be seeing that one soon. it's so pretty and feminine. but there are some great things that will make their way slowly over to the shop. probably starting this weekend. can't wait to get them listed!
