Marvelous Monday!

I hope you all had a great weekend! It is FINALLY starting to cool down some here in Texas. Makes for some lovely days! You know, the sort where you can walk around outside without being soaked in sweat after ten minutes. Sooo nice. Especially for bike riding!

  • Ashe Mischief brings us the shopping bill of rights. Couldn’t have said it better myself!
  • I’m surprised I haven’t seen another post like this, but I liked this on sewing & body image.
  • Be the One. Sarah Von brings a big grin to my face on a regular basis.
  • Elle at the Demoiselles answers a reader question about the in-betweenie blues.
  • Marie Denee opened her online boutique last week! If you’re interested in high-end plus size fashion, you should definitely check it out.

  • Wicked Halo has a photoshoot done for an online magazine that takes designer goods & relates them to bugs. Surprisingly fascinating.
  • Why I Am Not Afraid to Take Your Money, by Amanda Palmer (formerly of the Dresden Dolls). You might have already read this, but if you haven’t, it’s definitely worth reading. It’s a point of view most people don’t get exposed to enough.
  • Versatile Must-Haves for Fall is a pretty good place to get some starting ideas for your fall wardrobe.
  • Last but not least, I want to say a public “Thank you!” to Mary of Pretty Good Things & Winona of Daddy Likey. They both hosted giveaways that I miraculously won something in (on the same day, no less!). I won a fascinator from Mary (which has already got here! talk about speedy shipping), and a handbag from Handbag Heaven at Winona’s giveaway. Reviews will be up for both later! It’s so weird, I have honestly never won anything by random drawing in my life until the last two months. Anyways, Winona’s book is now out, so you should definitely check it out. I was surprised, I didn’t think it came out until early November! I’ll be ordering a copy in the next few days & you can bet I’ll be posting a review for that as well.

How did your weekend go? I hope it was amazing! And I hope you’re all having an awesome start to the week!

    So impressed with the butterfly heels!

  • sarah von says:

    Thanks for the nod, lady! I’m flattered to be in such good company!

  • Winona says:

    I was so happy when you won, my dear! And two contests in one day? You have the karma of a woman who has saved the lives of a thousand kittens (not sure if you have actually done that, but you certainly have the karma of someone who has). And thank you for the shoutout about my book! I actually didn’t know it was out right now either until I started getting texts from people who had pre-ordered it on Amazon and were already receiving it. The release date for bookstores is November 9th–thank you SO much for the support! :)
