Cool Finds...Vintage Fabric

So, this weekend I checked out this local dive of a fabric store in Walkertown, NC. It's called The Fabric Center located on Old Hollow Road. Locals know it as it's been around forever!!!!!!!! Seriously, some of the fabric in there is older than me, but that's awesome because i found some fabulous vintage fabric finds! And you can't tell from the outside, but the place is ginormous! Take a look..... 

Just wait 'till you get inside!

Outside complete with cammo school bus! To hide all that fabulous vintage goodness!

I hit the fabric motherload!!!!

Vintage orange houndstooth polyester! Quite shag-a-rific baby!

I love both of these fabrics! So retro, would make fabulous curtains!

Fabric of all kinds!

I love it! More retro-fabulousness.

I love it!

Rolls and rolls of trim, binding, whatever you need....

I love this trim. Forgot to get me some so I will be making a trek back. Darnit. :)

I love this dinosaur fabric but whatever would I do with it??

Ooh, vintage lace...

...and more....

...and more vintage lace, my favorite.

So much fabulousness under one roof! And then my camera battery died so you didn't even get to see the button stash! If you're in the area check them out. You'll be glad you did.

Doxie Things i ♥Luv♥...Found on Etsy!

So, I just love doxies, ya know, the dog....dachshunds. Did I spell that right?? Don't get me wrong, I love all furry babies, but I especially love the doxies. :)  Maybe it's the short little legs, and fat little feet, the long chubby body, I don't know. There is just so much cuteness packed into little doxies! Here are some of the cutest wearable doxie items I found on Etsy. Soooo cute!! The doxie hair bobbies are so mine!...really, they are, I so ordered them. :)

I'm Baaacckk...Again!

Oh, technology, it's a gift and a curse. It's one of those things that once you get a piece of it, it's hard to live without. This brings me to the point of my rant: my computer went on the fritz! It was crazy! I couldn't get on the if!...because some stupid malicious malware thingy was unleashing some serious craziness on my operating system. Everything else worked, just not internet. That's all i really need, at least on a daily basis. So, this meant, no Etsy, no blog, no Facebook, no twitter, no email, no Picnik.....yikes!

But now, I'm back and getting caught be on the lookout for the fashion updates, and my favorite things updates. And I'm trying to come up with some new stuff. Trying to get into a routine on the blog because I know you girls eagerly await my posts. :)  But seriously, try to do something like Fashion Friday or Things I Love I need to come up with something crafty the other days 'o the week. Hmm, stilll thinking on that. :) Let me know what you'd like to see! I am looking to do something like a seller spotlight so if you're interested speak up.

Later girls. Happy Friday! How cool is this?! (Look down.) Lol.

Plus-Size Fashion Spotlight

Good morning, my fashionista friends! I'm always on the lookout for something fabulous to wear to the office. Remember ladies, just because your outfit is fabulous, doesn't mean you have to sacrifice comfort!

  • Since I tend to be more comfortable in slacks at the office, I started with these pinstriped trousers from Lane Bryant. Aren't they great?
  • I paired them with this print top from Fashion Bug. The right print can actually be more slimming for full figured ladies, according to Clinton and Stacy on What Not to Wear. Love it!
  • A simple, silver butterfly necklace handmade by yours truly, moi! Find it here.
  • This awesome hot pink suede microfiber bag really brings out the pink in the blouse.
  • And finally, perhaps the most important part of any outfit, the shoes! This affordable peep-toe wedge is great for work or play.
