flowers & stripes / love & some verses

i thrifted this dress over the weekend, and have been living in it the last two days. it's long & it hits right between my knees & feet. every time i wear a long dress, my favorite iron & wine song plays in my head: love is a dress that you made, long -- to hide your knees.  and i like the little print. maybe only to a clotheshorse can a piece of clothing feel like home -- and this does, to me. i've edited close to a 1,000 photos in it, listened to a new album, called a best friend, tasted the world's best mocha (courtesy of robbie), had good dreams in it. i like the stories the things we own tell.

  5. i'm in love with how you worded those stories your dress tells. clothes with good memories are some of my favourites to slip on. or saving new clothes for just the right adventure...

  6. This little dress is beautiful. Clothes that make you feel good are the only clothes you should wear.

  9. I couldn't find where or how on your blog to connect with you so I'm hoping this works... I'm wondering where your favorite places to thrift are in Seattle! I know you don't live there anymore, but I'm sure you've got a few favorites...?! I'm new to the town and have been looking...unsuccessfully! Please help! :)
