batik dress

I found this sweet little African batik wrap dress last weekend at an estate sale! I love wrap clothing, may you never suffer a "fat day" again because these pieces always fit just right! I think i'll keep it for a little while, but i must admit that i bought it and another for the etsy shop i'm working on... it's probably a bad practice to keep my inventory for myself...

so wait, what? an etsy shop?... yeah! i'm starting one! i mentioned it a few weeks ago when i posted about my ebay pop-up shop for newer pieces, but the etsy shop will be way more fun! the pieces i'm collecting are worldly vintage, that, like i said, are hard to keep my hands off of. :) this shop will also have a partnership with a very talented friend of mine who makes sunning jewelry with found bones! (like my fox vertebrae necklace, you could have one too!) Seriously, every time i see bones in the woods, i've been collecting them for her... mmm deer toes.

at this point we have plenty of inventory to start with... we just have to pick a name, and do EVERYTHING else... photos, measuring, writing... yeah, that's why it's taking so long with a day job... one day i'll post with a very special shop opening announcement...
