bitter sweet.

Yesterday morning I woke up and found out I had sold my favorite dress ever on etsy.. The most beautiful vintage 1960's COCO of california flower dress.
I was completely devastated! I had plans of taking it off my shop and wearing it all Spring long. Should have listened to my gut and taken it off a long time ago!
It's completely bitter sweet because I love it so much but the money was well needed! Soon I will be left with a hefty vet and car bill so everything helps. It still was so hard to let this one go.
I feel like such a crazy person, being so upset about selling a dress. It didn't have any sort of sentimental value or history with me, So why am I so connected? It's just so beautiful and amazing. But, come on.. it's only a dress, right?
I have been pretty compulsive with my spending lately. Buying unnecessary amounts of hats, shoes, blouses, dresses, everything! I know most of these things will appear sooner or later on my etsy but this compulsive behavior must stop! For example: Yesterday after selling my favorite dress I went on etsy and purchased a dress of the same shape/brand as the one I sold.. WHO DOES THAT!? My emotions for this thing completely took over.
I was able to savor a moment with it and have photographs wearing the dress. It's always going to be one of those things I just let slip away.
You're going to have to excuse me for being a little too picture happy, it's just so good!!

  2. I've been in the same compulsive buying of nothing phase. its frustrating. Im sorry you sold your spring soul mate, but i have faith you'll find another. xox
    btw your hair still grows SO quickly hah

    I had been planning on buying this dress!
    I am so bummed!

  4. You're so beautiful!

    & I definitely have felt depressed after selling certain items on Etsy. I sold a lot of my mom's things, and I felt like I lost a part of her when I did it! I'm over it now, but it's a difficult thing to have to part with things you love sometimes, even if they are just clothes.

  5. This dress is a gem. Reminds me of vintage Lilly Pulitzer prints.
