P.O. Trips & Goodwill Silk Shorts

I cheated again yesterday and squeezed a small outfit shoot into my busy schedule. Somewhere in between my anthropology final and a trip to the post office I fit a couple photos in (which should explain why there are so few in this set). I've made so many trips to the post office this week, and yesterday alone I mailed off five packages. Then, later in the evening, I sold three more orders! You guys are so awesome. The support I'm receiving with the store is just beyond belief. It's showing me that I made the right decision by quitting my job and going full time with this whole store venture. I'll do my best to stay consistent with my inventory and photos throughout this whole process, but again, thank you so much for making this possible!

Yesterday I wore that same shirt I paired under the denim dress earlier in the week, only this time I stuck it with a pair of silks shots I scored in my 16 for $60 Goodwill spree. The shorts were originally bought for a whole different reason (which I'll explain a little more next week), but I sort of feel in love with them when I tried them on. We'll see if the other thing actually goes through, but if it doesn't I'll still reveal the secrets I'm holding.





Also, there's only one more day to enter the Shop Dixi giveaway. I'd like to see a ton more entries, so if you haven't already, make your way to that post and get entered!! I mean, it's a FREE dress at stake. What girl in their right mind wouldn't want a free dress!

Sorry I made you go to the post office to add to that.

You really have a talent!

The blouse and shorts are both so wonderful! I've been searching for a good pair of shorts like that in the thrift stores but haven't had luck yet! Do you have better luck for long shorts that drape well in the men's or women's section?

♥Lola said...

I love your blouse, it's such a pretty colour :)

Diana said...

I love reading about etsy success!
How about just saying you go to to post office one day a week? I'm not sure if that works for your shop. I bought stamps.com and that saved me SOOO much time.

Amanda said...

These photos are lovely! Those shorts are very cute and I really like the top that you chose to pair it with :]

Manja said...

Oh that outfit is so lovely!
The silk shorts remind me of a pair of shorts I have, except mine are wool :)

You look so pretty all sprawled out in the grass, Starr! Every time I try to do that, I worry about bugs too much. Ha!

Perfect outfit! Lovely pics! :)

This outfit is amazing! I'm so inspired!

Where I live is lovely...but there isn't much else but the ocean. and in the summer it's filled with trashy tourist's so the beach becomes not so much fun, lol! I have family here so I can always come back.
