I owe my new-found obsession with ModCloth to my dear friend Annie of Marry You Me. She sent me a link to a gorgeous dress she wore for her Mad Men party and from that point, I was smitten. I’m such a vintage/antique/retro junkie so the vibe of their clothes and accessories is right up my alley. I’m in constant swoon over their retro and chic sheath dresses, embellished cardigans and chunky Mary Janes. Once this wedding is over, I’m going to boost their sales quota by purchasing a few of the fabulous numbers below. I’ll have all the makings of a stunning little housewife then! 🙂 Just don’t ask me to make you a sandwich.

IT’S FRIDAY, WAHOOO!!! Even though my week wasn’t exceptionally stressful or irritating, I’m still beyond happy it’s Friday. For one, we are escaping the hustle and bustle of the city for a weekend at the Shenandoah Valley. Not only will the weather be gorgeous [60’s and sunny, yes please!] but the scenery will also be remarkable. I need some fresh mountainous air and lots of bright fall foliage. I also need to spend 2 full days exercising, especially with the wedding countdown ticking away! Luckily, I also booked us a pet friendly room in the hotel on the top of one of the mountains [hello gorgeous sunrise!] which means the pups can get out for some much-needed exercise. Although, I suspect, Oscar will be in my arms the whole time. Let’s just say he’s not a “rough and outdoorsy” kind a boy.
Enough about me though, it’s time for some fab finds. I know that’s why ya’ll stick around 🙂 Honestly, as much as I’ve tried to shy away, I just can’t overcome my blatant, wallet busting OBSESSION with Etsy. I’ve tried to not shop there, but I just can’t stay away. And Peppermint Pretty’s, a vintage wedding dress line based out of Kansas City, page is partly to blame. Erin Coleman, the owner and designer, has seriously blown me away with her stunning, one of a kind vintage wedding dresses. Not only are they gorgeous, but they are incredibly affordable! With no dress costing more than $1,500, they are priced to fit into almost any budget! I could ramble about these stunning gowns forever, but I know ya’ll just want to see them. Get ready for some seriously amazing dresses. And don’t say I didn’t warn you about getting hooked!
