fashion friday

stacked.......










packed........













midwestern girl travels in comfort with chair.......












travel girl. train girl.

this girl loves her suitcases and travel cases. She hoards them. Doesn't it sound romantic to travel by train?

*sigh*

This ends a 4 week run of fashion friday. as you can see, it's not the ideas that are hard to come by, it's the planning and time involved. But, i promise to bring it back one friday a month...at least.

*dress was clearenced at Gap last summer for $28.

*ruffle boots from anthro 08"

*vintage suitcases from my own collection


{and i found another girl playing along, check Tara out here.}

I love these posts! I have always been impressed with what it must take to create one of these darling posts, so I understand you cutting back on them. I'm just glad that you aren't eliminating them entirely! You look darling, by the way...but I bet you were a little chilly ;-)

Reese & Marie said...

You've done it again! How do you lug these large props around and get someone to take such fabulous pictures of you? You always manage to create a fantasy world... like a scene from a great movie. It's really amazing. Sorry to see the series end my friend!

Brr - you make me shiver to see you in a summer dress so soon. But you look really cute - why didn't I buy that dress when I could?? Darn. As for the suitcases - love 'em. I have the top one in a pretty tan color myself. Need bigger suitcases to stack it on. Cute!!

Everytime I see your little bio I think St. Charles! But I'm thinking St. Charles, MO, not IL. Ever go there? The mainstreet is not to be missed - wonderful shops and cobblestone streets and horse drawn carriage, etc.

I've always loved vintage suitcases and am truly going to suck it up the next time I find one and just buy it--even if it's musty!
