Greetings friends, and very long time no see! The long absence is due to nothing exciting. I've been working non-stop and not buying or wearing any blog-worthy clothing. But this weekend I had the pleasure to attend a wedding in coastal South Carolina and was excited for an occasion to dress up. This floral-printed kimono style dress was discovered at Asos and is on clearance for $30 right now! I paired it with a gold tassel belt and vintage gold clutch with black tassels (by the way, lovin' tassels right now). One of my favorite comments from the wedding came from an older lady - as we were in line for food, she told me she loved my shoes and my white hose. I looked down and told her I wasn't wearing any hose and that I was just pale. We both laughed at that one. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous week!

Happy Tuesday! I discovered this fun lizard print tank (though it looks like alligators to me) at H&M recently and thought it would look cute with this old LOFT skirt (a great purchase, I've been wearing it for years). Also, did you know that if you go to Kendra Scott during your birthday month, you receive 50% off one item of your choice? I've been wearing KS for six years and just found this out recently when a student told me! So I snagged the linked necklace above. Have a wonderful week!

Greetings, greetings, and Happy Monday! I'm super excited to share something I've been thinking on for a while and that is my new crochet Instagram account (here, or look for username granvillestitchery). After a ten year hiatus from crocheting, I picked it up again a couple of years ago and have been practicing, practicing, practicing! I originally only learned a few basic stitches (this was before YouTube, Blogger, etc. and many internet resources become popular) and never thought I would be able to crochet more than rows and rows of these basics. When I picked it up again, it had to reteach myself and it was a lot easier the second time around. Once I tackled this challenging scarf last Fall, I figured it was time to try more advanced works (like these vintage doilies)! After thousands of yards of yarn and thread running through my fingers, I'm ready to share my work online - a kind of scary thing, but I'm going for it anyway.

As for this cozy sweater, I crocheted it from a fabulously easy pattern made by the talented Kelly at Knitbrooks. It worked up quickly and I ended up making a second this week - though by now, it's a bit too warm in Atlanta to wear them so they will be stored for next Fall (when I'll probably make a few more in other colors). Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to see you on IG!

One more note - today should have been Bandit's 8th birthday!

Heels - Brian Atwood "Sasha" {last seen here}
Purse - Morris Moskowitz, vintage {last seen here}
Earrings - Vintage
Ring - Kendra Scott "Tela" 

Happy Monday! I've been searching for a {cheap} basic black long sleeve collared DvF dress for a very long time and finally found one on the clearance rack at Nordstrom Rack - and it was marked down to the prices I see them go for second-hand on eBay. So big score for me! I dressed it up with these fun vintage green sequined disco ball earrings and an equally groovy vintage velvet clutch, and my tallest heels with metallic platforms. Have a wonderful week and thanks for dropping by!
