On Owning a Vintage Shop

The worst thing about it is, wanting to keep everything I buy for myself. "It's mine, all mine!" a dark small voice cries inside. Not good, crazy little vintage monster, not good.

Especially when I try stuff on my kids... and it looks this super cute!

The best part, is my daughter beginning to break out of her shell in front of the camera. I love how she's finally relaxing and...

woah! posing? Where did she get that from? Must be those Florida cousins we saw a couple weeks ago.

When the greedy vintage monster starts to rear it's ugly head, I try to remind myself that I'm not buying anything that far in advance for Cruz and it won't fit Eliana for much longer. 

 And if it doesn't sell? Well then! I suppose Cruz may have a chance to wear it after all.

(plaid wool romper: vintage- headed to the little vintage me shop very soon!)

okay that is cute ... i think you should keep it ... or at least until she outgrows it :) and her hair is just darling ... did you layer it yourself or is it just like that?!

Love it! I know I would have the same problem. Only after they didn't fit would I be able to part with them and even still.....

So so so adorable! I know what you mean, it is hard not to buy every cute thing I see! Your little one is just too cute :)

So I went over to your shop because I thought Sarala might need this little outfit & it's not there. Did you decide to keep it for now? Either way, it looks like a great find!! And I am so glad Eliana learned something from her older cousins. Tomorrow I will have to show them how cute she is!!! Miss you!

What a darling jumper. I love it because it is original... one of a kind type of piece. So so cute. Keep it. Go for it.
