First, I must apologize with all my soul for once again being absent without any word! The boyfriend whisked me away on a weekend trip, silly me didn't take any pictures, and since then it's been work work work and school!
But most importantly, I must tell you about the most exciting thing that arrived in the mail! A few weeks ago, the every-so lovely Sally Jane Vintage ran a contest on her blog, and my stars must have been lucky because I won! After exchanging a few e-mails to determine taste and size a splendid package arrived for me! I opened it with my mother and it was just like a birthday, or a holiday, or something else exciting! The box was all Mary Poppins and seemed never to end, being filled with all kinds of lovely treasures: tights and dresses, scarves, sweaters, gloves and tiny purses, and even a funny little book that I've been flipping through! I am so overwhelmed by her generosity, it was just the greatest treasure! Or, is, rather.
(Isn't this just the sweetest card! It's so clever and wonderful I almost can't stand it!)
I can't wait to integrate all these goodies into my wardrobe, especially for fall! The boots in the picture above were also in the package (they are comfy as ever and perfect perfect perfect for traipsing around campus--just as I did today!), as well as a terribly intelligent black dress that I can't wait to wear to my new job (exciting! It's still something in retail, but a change is nice, and it is for the best really)!
Thank you so much, <3333!
