In the Shop │ September

So, here in Sacramento, things stay pretty warm throughout most of September. This is fine and dandy for all of us Californians until the actual first day of Fall arrives, and everyone -- I mean everyone, including myself -- gets worked up into a frenzy wondering, When will this heat end? And I just want to wear pants and boots! And Why can't we just have some seasons around here?

Yeah. We're pathetic. Really whiny at times, too.

Well, guess what? I baked an apple pie in hopes this would usher in Fall (not at all because I want to eat this delicious thing that one could equate to heaven) and behold... this morning, it felt like Fall. Like for reals. The crispness. The it-won't-go-past-80-degrees- mark. And the I-can-wear-boots-and-not-die-of-heat-stroke, feeling.

Fall is here. And in my shop, Fall is here too. I'm ready. Stocking up and stocked up.

Take a look at what's going in or has gone in this weekend then visit the shop for more.

Happy Autumn everyone! And partake of apple pie if you can. Heck, come on over. Any excuse to make more pie is great with me. I'll be waiting.

Wolverine Boots │ Gap Selvedge Denim │ Fall Must be Close

Okay. No joke I just met my most favorite pair of boots. Ever.

Sure. They cost a few dollars more than the average pair. But let me tell you, these aint average.

Oh, and they'll last pretty much forever. What are they? Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots.

They consist of the softest, most perfect leather. Not kidding, here.

They smell amazing too (I mean, before you wear them a ton). I had my nose in them all day Saturday.

Also, these selvedge denim jeans by Gap? Beyond killer. Beyond comfy. Get a pair!

Here's a little run-down on what ► selvedge denim is in case you were wondering what the heck I mean.

I'm thrilled Fall is around the corner. Even here in Sacramento, I can smell it in the morning.

And it's a little bit of heaven.

Vintage Stripes │ Vintage 1970s Lanz Dress Does 1940s

This dress. I'm at a loss for words. Stripes, perfect length, perfect fit.

Sometimes I think vintage can be so superior to modern that I ask myself, Why do  I ever wear anything else?

(Okay. I'm not actually going to ask myself that. 1. It's hard to find vintage that looks great. 2. It's hard to find vintage that fits. 3. I have an abnormal love affair with vintage, so the glasses with which I use to view fashion is extremely distorted.)

But this dress. 1970s vintage Lanz dress (the history behind this company is incredible, Salzburg, Austrian-based -- Hello, Sound of Music -- since 1922) with a 1940s cut. Perfection.

This Lanz Dress: For sale 

I'm going to try my hardest to find a comparable for you, so you can find one in stores after this one sells!

Stay tuned friends...
