Vintage finds for February. In all sizes!

Hey everyone! I went shopping for you again. It has been over 2 years and running  TOH and I am still excited to be bringing you vintage finds.I have been getting more and more emails asking to find not just plus size clothing but vintage clothing in every size so I will be doing just that. Naturally I will cater more towards plus size clothing since it is such a hard task but slowly I will introduce smaller sizes as well. I couldn’t model for you this time for 2 reasons. First off  because of surgery a coupe weeks ago that left me weak so I wasn’t feeling up to the challenge and second off I bring you smaller sizes this voluptuous body cant squeeze into (even though i want to badly!) The dress form is a wonderful addition to the shop. I would love to get your feed back on what you prefer though.

But for now here is what I have found just in time for Valentines Day!

New goodies for TOH

I went shopping again for ThreadOverHeels . I LOVE these little vintage numbers I found!

OK… they aren’t “little” but who cares they are fabulous!

Also I decided to get fancy with my eyelashes just because it was on Valentines day.

Also. I just wanted to share my outfit for Valentines day. THAT SHIRT. An old ASPCA shirt thrifted. It makes me laugh… then cry.  It was a whole 50 cents and the best 50 cents I have ever spent.

I spent my Valentines holiday with dear friends with 6 dollar pitchers of blue moon on Karaoke night.

Celine Dion’s  All by myself… 2 pitchers in at a dirty bar… That shirt. Picture this.

HOT MESS. And a wonderfully perfect night.

Cute quirky T-shirts, classic pencil skirts, chuncky cinch belts and bold shoes (mine are Candy’s from Kholes – $20!) is always a fun way to sassy up your weekly wardrobe!

 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentines day! And have a better week ahead!

Hoops & Prints- a new kind of picture frame

So as you all know I have been drawing my fingers off this past month.

I am in the process of making my very 1st collection that I am proud of and I well on my way.

Who needs art school? I have books, the internet and determination!

My goal in 2012? Get better.

I will have prints available  hopefully by next week if not sooner!

In the mean time I have created a new type of a print.

I have taken my illustrations and printed them on a fine piece of cream canvas and fastened them in an embroidery hoop. A little different for your wall decor.

These will be handmade by order.  They can be customized to your liking. So if you would like a different image in your hoop I am more then happy to create something personal for you!

For sale now is “Coriander” Prints and Hoop Prints

I hope you enjoy!

Have a great night everyone.

-April
