Lost in Drawers

Soooo

So, its been pretty slow and quiet around here and yet pretty darn busy all at the same time. When we’re not at my parents’ house, we’re watching many a Miyazaki film, reading new books, watching Emory sit in a random box for two hours, again being with our family who is all-the-time greatness, celebrating their anniversary, generally being lazy and completely unplugging from social media and in a way the whole wide world.(Obviously, though not too far from our phones) But isn’t it nice to unplug once in a while?

We have some amazing things poised on the horizon, and hoping in faith that they will blow our minds. And so while we are waiting for miracles, we find things to make the day-to-day a little sweeter. I’ve been obsessed with my custom ring from Come Along Fawn! I can’t seem to pry it off my finger, and I’m okay with this. But the true joy is time spent hanging out with my mother laughing, changing around the layout of our house, and finding the time to have an all around uneventful but still very lovely Valentine’s Day.

Here’s to the little joys and the big hopes.

Happy Be Kind to Yourself Day

Valentine’s Day. This day, or as my mother says “week,” can be overly cheesy or overly cynical. With a ton of lovely, dovey photos to go right along with it. So, alongside the typical onslaught of red and pink, it is always good thing to remember to be nice and kind rather than cynical or sarcastic. Love shouldn’t be so narrowly defined, as it doesn’t just come from a significant other, but from close family, our rapscallion Pomeranian, our friends and a larger sense of community.

So from now on February 14th, consider making it a lovely day to remember to be kind to yourself and to others around you!

P.S.

Now that being said, I absolutely love and adore my wife. Heather is simply the greatest, and absolutely the best thing that has ever happened to me. She inspires me to be less cynical and embrace a life based on kindness. Because love wins. She is my example of this every single day. I am an incredibly lucky man.

Hello, our dearest readers! We are super happy as we just got these dresses back from our lovely seamstress, Linda! Each one has either been shorten or had sleeves removed for a more modern fit and look. It might seem funny that a reworked sleeve or a shortened hem can change a garment. But it suuuuuuuuure can. The more we tailor dresses, the more we want all of our dresses to be truly wearable and something that will fit into your wardrobe seamlessly. It is the best thing to work with newly acquired pieces and old favorites then see our tailor work her magic. The results are truly something unique and one of a kind that will only be in your closet. That’s the beauty of wearable vintage, and what we strive for every day.

It is simply the best when you get tokens of kindness in the mail! So a very lovely and huge thank you is in order to the McDine family, and especially little Oscar Fox for this one of a kind thank you card! Also on the thank you list is my husband, for this purchase from our friend Jessica of the wonderful Come Along Fawn! Be sure to check our her Etsy. Adorable, one of a kind jewelry and dresses? I mean, one couldn’t want or ask for more!

In the world of Lost In Drawers Vintage, we’ve been working working working on shooting new dresses and getting some special things done to make great dresses uniquely special. Spring is an incredibly fun time for great wearable vintage pieces. So, we are working very hard and are really excited.

Speaking of working so hard, we needed a break and so we headed south and east to see my parents and brothers  which was so great just lounging and spending family time. And even if I got sick while my husband watched the Super Bowl, there is no better person to take care of you than a mother and my mom is simply the best.

And last but not least, it’s the second month of the year and here we are…trying to get this little boy to understand that Valentine’s Day is next and Christmas is over. He seems to think its a year round event. Maybe it should be? Just maybe.
