I like the disaster of the night sky, stars spilling this way and that as if they were upturned from a glass. I like the way good madness feels. I like the way laughter always spills. That's the word for it. It never just comes, it spills. I like the word 'again'. Again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again. I like the quiet sound a coffee cup makes when it's set down on a wooden table. So hushed. So inviting. Like morning light yawning through the window and stretching out onto the kitchen floor. I like the way girls' lips look like they're stained with berries. I like the way morning light breaks like a prism through the empty wine bottles on our dusty apartment floor. Glasses empty except for the midnight hour. I like the way blueberries stain my fingers during the summer. I like the way light hits your eyes and turns it into a color that doesn't exist anywhere else other than in this moment. I want it all. I want the breeze to call my name as it rushes down my street, looking for me. I want to feel grass underneath my bare feet and I want to feel the sun kiss freckles onto my cheeks. I want to hear you yell hello as you make your way towards me and not goodbye as you have to go.
That's just a little bit about me.
Now a little bit about this dress and New Old Fashion Vintage:
Amelia, the owner, lives in a sunny house from the 1800's. Her dress form's name is Dolly and she bribes her sister with chicken tacos to model her pieces. She treasure hunts for a full time job. She finds dresses that were once part of someone's first date, someone's summer picnic, someone's ridiculously fun dinner party (where tinsel garlands were included. I'm assuming.) All years and years and years ago. Then she puts a stamp on them and mails it out to a new girl, where she'll shake out the dress and give it some new event to shine through. Each item holds a story and it's fun to thumb the sleeve and try to imagine what it lived through. It makes you want to put it on and experience just the same- that's the fun part of vintage. So if you're in a shopping mood, be sure to pop over to New Old Fashion Vintage here and give a big hello to Amelia!
