it's my birthday and i'll shop if i want to.

shop if i want to,
shop if i want to...
you would shop, too, if it happened to you.
(sung to 'it's my party' by lesley gore)

got a call from the sister asking if i wanted to "birthday shop".
shure. don't have to ask me twice.
fun mini spree. got a few items that will pop up later.
but, first...

these are the dresses i will be living in this summer.
i say 'these' because i am going to get evvvry color and design.
i love the racerback, i love the slightly thicker t-shirt material, and i love the a-line cut.
i was a little disappointed that they were a bit short. this is the length, mentioned here, that shows my ankles and makes me look short. but, on the weekends, with slippers, they'll be the perfect length.

and, regarding my feather necklaces,
cel of spider silk stockings asked:
"That necklace is beautiful! But how on earth do you store it so that the feathers don't get all messed up?"
answer: i hang them on a cork board with thumbtacks.

  18. Those do look very comfy. Maxi dress that is also a-line cut is screaming ease of use.
    The corkboard is cool. I hang all my necklaces too. They are either inside my jewelery cabinet or out over my dresser. Amazingly i know where each and every single one of them is.
    Love this dress with the fur vest. Very cool.

  25. Well, happy birthday :)

    And that dress does seem like a perfect summer uniform kind of dress. I am a HUGE fan of the corkboard jewelry storage. I use it for all of my necklaces and most of my earrings...I think I get a lot more use out of my jewelry, having it out in the open like that. It's hard to miss.

  32. Happy Birthday (I'm so late - for some reason when I try to comment on some blogs, yours included it registers as Anonymous - grrr, I'm so mad at Blogger). Anyway, you look amazing and the jewelry is flawless!

  33. Aaand I am extremely late getting around to reading this, but ah! That's actually a really great idea. I might just put up some cork board and do the same now!

  34. I love the jewelry storage! I think that cupcake pan is perfect for your rings - good thinking :)

    I have a little bathroom shelf thing that I got from target and some little clear plastic drawer dividers that happen to fit perfectly - now I use that as an unintentional jewelry organizer for my necklaces and fruit basket for my bracelets...

    I did the hanging necklace at our old apartment, but there isnt a good spot at the new place. I love being able to see everything - makes it so much easier!
