On fashion and furniture

This dress came from the same estate sale where I purchased the orange striped dress I wore a few posts ago. I was planning on selling it in my etsy shop because the waist was snug, but when I put it on today, it fit like a dream. So I guess it'll be staying with me for a while! (This instance isn't too bad, but I have serious issues letting things go for the shop...even things that will never ever fit me.) Sensible as always, I wore it to go pick up a barrister bookcase that I found on Craigslist. That's me; hauling furniture in snug-fitting 50's dresses!

Speaking of furniture, I've been accumulating things for my apartment, but it's slow-going. I never realized just how painfully expensive furniture can be. So far I've got a chrome and yellow laminate table, a metal kitchen cart from the 50's, and the aforementioned barrister bookcase. I have my sights set on a mid-century modern desk, but everything I've found has been way out of my budget. Feel free to leave any decorating links you find inspiring, as I'm pretty obsessed with all things home related.
