prints charming

good vs. evil, republican vs. democrat, coke vs. pepsi, and the battle in my head: prints vs. solids. buying clothes (or even housewares) causes a jan-like war of the voices, only in a much less creepy way as i can't for the life of me decide which is better. the sensible side says, "solids are more transitional and age appropriate considering the big 3-0 is just over a month away." but the fun side says, "F the rules, let's have fun!" where do you stand? do you prefer one over the other or do you like an equal amount of both?

from the top: 1., 2., 3., 4., 5., 6., 7.

i don't spend as much time browsing etsy as i used to, not because i don't enjoy drooling over things i want in my life, but because it's one of those things you tell yourself you're going to do for 10 minutes, but next thing you know it's two hours later. the other day, since i wasn't very busy with anything, i decided to just search for random things, like "yellow stripes" or "floral print" and i definitely added some things to my wish list!

one more thing. that pretty floral dress up there is handmade, can you believe it?! i have the greatest respect for those that can make clothes because i know it's a lot of work. leah's shop is filled with great handmade clothes made from vintage fabrics! p.s. i just bought myself a tank top from her shop that i've been watching for a while, and i can't wait to wear it!

  1. Frankly at this point, I'd rather focus on prints vs. solids than political debates. I love that bandana/scarf in the third picture, gorgeous!

  9. I have Definitely had to curb my Etsy habit for that exact same reason. I open it up and next thing I know it's 3 hours later and I'm looking at war-era alarm clocks...

  13. I used to have way too many solid colors in my closet, so then I started buying prints all the time, and now I have too many prints and am back to buying solids. I think it's going to be a never-ending cycle :)
