The Vintage Valley

The personal blog of a vintage & goodwill shopper

Thursday, July 5, 2012





Photobucket Ive noticed recently that everyone looks so miserable walking down the street, ive started grinning at them (with teeth..that never happens) and saying hello just to conjure up a spark of happiness from somewhere! aside from the buzz off faces and annoyed "why are you so happy looks" a few people chirped back a lovely "morning"...im assuming its because its Winter and people are on a mission to get somewhere, but whats wrong with a little rain? i definitely make an effort every day to walk a little slower and take in the day, the sun, the flowers! its so easy for a day to go past without even noticing the small things...

So since its Friday (and washing day is tomorrow) i pinched this bright yellow print dress from The Shop and took in the sunshine before it disappears later today!

I have a full weekend planned pizza with a friend tonight, op shopping, coffee table searching, quality time with Z & pancakes...lots of pancakes! XX

(Wearing: Vintage Valley Dress, Vintage belt, Target Tights, Vintage Purse, Vintage Watch, I Love Billy Shoes)

absolutely lovely. I always smile at people when I make eye contact with them and don't understand why people don't feel like doing the same.

ps do you have any hair tutorial videos?

I absolutely positively love your hair and the vibrant dress. I definitely have been finding the weather affects my mood recently. Your idea/gesture sounds like a lovely way to get people out of this winters slump. Sounds like a great weekend ahead for you.

That dress is so lovely!

I have to admit, I'm always a little taken aback when strangers say good morning. I always respond though.

Love this outfit! It's so sunny which is what we all need right now! I have to admit that I often become extra-sickengly nice when everyone else is being narky just to get a reaction. It's a lot of fun.

I couldn't see this dress in your shop - is it already sold? I've been looking for something yellow to spice up my wardrobe. :)
