in the sun

hi friends. this morning philip and I went to an estate sell filled to the brim with wondrous vintage dresses, records, and other pretty vintage things. I'm trying to make all of the dresses I got for the shop, so I'm using my will power not to keep them all! I found a gorgeous white slip dress and I am proooobably going to keep it. muaha.

it has been ridiculously warm here in california so we spent the day at the beach and at a mobile home park swimming pool. hey, we got desperate for a nice swim!

sailor blouse
1970s rusty suede dress

today he got an iphone (jealous!) and made this little video in a matter of two minutes. he's a technology wizard. expect more random little videos!
