truth be told, I had plans to post some photos this week even though mw and I are quite busy doing things like lazing by the pool and drinking pinot gris in the middle of the afternoon. but I forgot my camera cord and, well, I guess vacation just got in the way.
there were some great california vintage finds (some for me, some for the shop) that I'm excited to share next week. and until then, I hope everyone kicks off their long weekends as early as possible!
neat little side note: the top home featured on this vintage postcard belonged to bing crosby. the bottom house was bob hope's.

this summer, all I want to wear are long dresses in sophisticated prints, and this early 1970s cotton batik maxi outdoes everything else I've come across lately.
it's always a nice surprise to find a great tag inside a dress and this one's got it. but as I stuck my hands into the side pockets, I pulled out something even more telling: a place card from a wedding forty years ago where the original owner graced table number 16 with some serious style.

my love for things that are black and also from the 1950s is no secret. but combine those two qualities, add a tag that's pretty much to die for et voilà: a showstopping, vixen worthy cocktail dress that will undoubtedly stop traffic in all directions.
vintage 1950s ceil chapman return to yesterday dress in the shop soon!
