As I've been hinting at forever, here is part one (more to come...) of the photos my friend Anna took for me last week! It was so much fun posing for someone who loves photography as much as I do and this gal has some serious talent. It was also interesting to see the difference in photos between her camera and mine! I may or may not be begging the husband for a new lens now...
I'll be posting the photos I took of her soon too, she's a beauty!
I found this amazing 1940's jacket while we were thrifting and I knew I wanted to wear it immediately. It is such a gorgeous color, indicative of the era and it is in fabulous shape. It's only missing one button, which doesn't matter to me one snit because I can't button the thing anyway (shh our secret). This romper is one of my very favorite pieces. It is actually from around the 90's, but when styled the right way it can look like many different decades, which I love. Anyway, we took way too many photos, but I loved them all so enjoy!
Also, if you made it all the way through that long post you deserve to hear my announcement! I've been thinking about doing this for months and months, but just didn't feel like it was the right time. Well sometime last week I got a fire in my belly and decided to just go ahead with it! I started an Etsy Shop! I've worked steadily for the past several days buying, mending, pricing, sizing, taking photos, and uploading them to Etsy, and I'm proud to say I have quite a few items listed already :) If you're interested you can find me right here at Midwest Charm Vintage. I'd be honored if you would check it out and let me know what you think! Criticisms welcomed from those with experience as well :) I will be adding more and better things as I get acclimated to the process, but it's a start.
I am so grateful that God has given me renewed passions and energy this summer. I felt very stagnant at the end of the school year and these past couple of months have really changed my mindset back to a joyous and thankful one :) Nothing better than that!
Have a blessed day everyone!
Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
