spring cleaning

I have never wanted to sell vintage clothing on Etsy, if only because there are already a lot of sellers who already do it and who do it so well (estatesale, allencompanyinc, deargoldenvintage, darlingbrigade, secretlake, ramonawest, halfCaf, thrush, allthishappiness, etc., etc.). Most importantly, I am no model and/or model scout. However, it is time for a little spring cleaning and for me to finally let go of a couple of things that I have that I cannot wear, and I just might put them up in my sad, neglected Etsy shop.

I love this dress so much, but it just doesn't fit me. It reminds me a bit of the blue Lover dress that Rhiannon posted yesterday, although of course it is, um, totally different. It is also the dress version of my mauve raincoat.

This pair of shoes is perfect. Just absolutely darling. Scallops and cutouts and an ankle strap? Yes, please. I need to have the heel caps replaced; the shoes haven't been worn much, but they are old enough that the caps cracked and broke when I tried them on. They are a size 8 or so. I would wear them every day if I could, but I can't wear ankle straps because of my ankle that was once smashed to bits and patched with metal (oh no, not bitter).

I am saving a bunch of things for an upcoming rummage sale (more on this later!), but since most landlords in Toronto seem to consider a closet a luxury feature (oh no, not bitter), I may be forced to make the occasional clothing listing a regular thing.

  3. I take it no luck yet on the apartment hunt? I actually thought about you on Saturday out looking and crossed my fingers for you. But alas, my crossed fingers don't have the superpowers I sometimes wish they had...

  4. Thank you, Jane, that is very sweet. Sigh. Still no luck. We put in a couple of applications yesterday but have to depend on the luck of the draw, it seems. I'm trying not to think about how we'll be homeless in a month if nothing pops up soon!
