When I started this here blogity blog and joined wardrobe_remix about 6 months ago, I really didn't comprehend the amazing social aspect of it all. Between the blogosphere and flickr groups and the overlap between the two, it's so much fun to "meet" so many wonderful gals around the globe with similar interests and creative perspectives to share.
It's especially cool as someone who is a bit shy and would definitely not classify herself as socially outgoing in the "real world". Meeting new people has always been somewhat of a challenge for me, so this is really a fun experience. Not to mention, the large majority of my time these days is spent hangin' with my pre-toddler, which is no doubt a beautiful thing, but lets just say adult interaction is always welcome :)
Speaking of wonderful gals around the globe, there happens to be one in particular who has come to feel like a dear old friend even though we've only been corresponding for a matter of months and have never actually met. Me in California, her in Finland, brought together by our uncanny appreciation for the same types of styles and a series of magical coincidences which continue to weave there way through our lives on a regular basis, somehow making this friendship seem destined to be.
I'm sure a lot of you already know I'm talking about Milla or if you know her from flickr, the lovely and ever stylish, sunshineupton. I've sung her praises before, so I won't let this turn into a complete gush fest, but I did want to share this amazing outfit that just arrived in her latest care package that I was SO excited to get over the weekend...
... and my cheapo-red-mary-janes-turned-fabulous with the awesome little clip-on shoe bows that came as well! Thanks Milla for hookin' a girl up with the perfect red, white, and blue summer outfit :)
More treasures! The very cool postcard in the middle is from Anja's awesome clever nettle Etsy shop, bringing the total to two items that took the "scenic route" to me from Portland via Finland :D
This is Jean Jeans, the coolest vintage French paper doll from the seventies that ever was, complete with pages of fabtastic denim outfits!!!
Oh Milla, you know me too well! Thank you soooo so much! You truely are the best internets friend a girl could ever have! Also, thrifted treasures will be making there way across the globe to YOU shortly, including a piece from the magical flea market tarp o' vintage goodness :D
