Saying you haven't been blogging because it's been too cold is a little like saying the dog ate your homework... But really, it has been so cold. There is a scale of  'oh it's a little nippy' to 'what is even happening to my face I've been outside for 23 seconds' and we are at the latter part of the scale. The shop is cold too and I had to take the space heater home because our laundry lines froze (good times...) so my shop girl style is pretty much this...

Even though we are moving to the bigger and warmer shop this week, I still cracked and bought a replacement space heater for the shop because retail is bad enough in February without frost bite.

The deep freeze took a two day pause this weekend though and you would think when the temperature goes to a half reasonable place, that I would be out wearing some crazy dress or flashing some ankle, but not this time. I found an amazing vintage trapeze top at a flea market for $2 recently and it is basically all I want to wear. It's so basic and drapey and wonderful and when you wash it, it stays the same shape... Kind of a big deal because there isn't much that is more annoying than throwing your new top in the wash and it coming out with some crazy twisted side seam.

I feel like they tried to make twisted side seams a thing in 2001 but we're too smart to fall for that nonsense right?.

I like the cat necklace...after I figured out that it was indeed a cat necklace. :o)

It's great to hear that you've been able to score a warmer place for your stuff, than having to tread through the cold season. It's always a relief to be able to do so, and much better to be able to deploy the useful technologies while at it, such as heaters and stuff. In any way, I'm glad everything turned out well for you, Yen! All the best to you!
