Friday Favorites #45

Happy Friday, everyone!  We are *finally* getting some springier weather here (thank goodness!), which has launched me into full-fledged spring fever.  I'm so thankful not to have to wear snow boots and a heavy coat now!  With the influx of warm weather comes a flood of new items and lines.  Here are some of my favorite finds from this past week:

a // b // c // d // e // f // g 

Retro UK brand Trollied Dolly has a slew of new arrivals for spring!  I have a few of their dresses, and they always carry the most darling prints and silhouettes.  I'm so into a bunch of these!  The wildflower print dress (letter b) might be my favorite, but they're also carrying a few different dresses in a really charming bicycle print (which is shown in both letters c and g).  I also really love the shape of both of those dresses!  Other prints this season include dragonflies (letter a), cockatoos (letter d), beach deck chairs (letter e), and sprinkles (letter f)!  So springy and retro and hard to choose!

I'm seriously going ga-ga over all the amazing prints that are popping up lately!  My favorites include...

This umbrella printed dress by Nishe:
A hot pink dress with a peter pan collar and a marionette print?!?!  Amazing!
The print on this dress is a little busy, but it's soo much fun!
This pink kitty cat dress and matching cardi are so darling and retro!

Speaking of retro, this dress is my favorite of the bunch!  It's currently sitting in my shopping cart.

I've said before that I can be very picky about florals, but these are all so lush!

This new Bernie Dexter creation is so beautiful!  It reminds me of Monet's garden!  (In fact, now that I look at it -- IS it a print of Giverny?!  It's hard to tell, but it definitely could be!)

This violet print dress is absolutely beautiful.  I saw this dress on Miss Victory Violet and fell in love!
I am very preoccupied with thoughts of making over my room lately (though motivation to actually do anything is seriously lacking... oops), and I'm pretty fixated on making one part of my room into a little ice cream parlor-themed section.  I already have ice cream parlor wrought iron chairs (which I need to paint - gah!) and am on the hunt for a bistro table.  I bought an ice cream cone lamp recently, but I think these housewares would be a good addition to a fifties-inspired, snacky space:

I'm always hovering somewhere between pastel and kitch.  Though the above items satisfy my kitschier tendencies, these springy pastels are just as enticing.  For starters, I adore this beautiful blue vintage number from Urban Outfitters: 
I need a good pastel purse.  The first one is Betsey Johnson, and the second one is all jelly material!

This pink dress from eShakti is so sweet:
For all my dresses, I really don't have many skirts in my wardrobe.  I love these two baby blue options!

This pink scrub brush wand is magical!
These dresses are so pretty and delicate!

I can't resist a lavender dress, and I love the detailing on top!
I love Glitters For Dinner and their made-to-order adorable wares!

I love anything nostalgic or fantastical, so these are right up my alley!  Anything made out of jelly material is always on my wish list, and I love these bracelets made out of Cracker Jack prizes!  Plus, these heels are Pegasus-inspired (and on sale!).  So much fun!

On the subject of mythical creatures, I have to thank Amy from Hipsterbrarian for finding this amazing unicorn dress from Folter Clothing!  They truly have some of the coolest printed dresses in existence.
I love this Golden Girls phone case (since Bea Arthur is both my spirit animal and a mythical creature in her own right), but I wish it were better quality -- and that it specified the compatible iPhone model!
Myths... legends... you can't talk about that without mentioning Mr. White.  Some kind samaritan should buy me this Heisenberg sweatshirt immediately.
I desperately want this book!
I want to try this Thai tea frappe recipe!  I'm so obsessed with Thai iced teas, and this sounds like a yummy alternative.  I always think that it's precisely what Pooh Bear would order at a Thai restaurant.

I love the whole Billy on the Street series, and this one with Paul Rudd is pretty excellent (though I am partial to the one with Amy Pohler).  So dreamy.


That's all for this week!  Have a great Friday!

  1. Um, I basically want every.single.thing. I obviously have the exact same Modcloth stuff in my wishlist. And look! There's my name in your list! I feel so special. :)


  2. I always love your Friday Favourites!!! I love those purses, and the star wand! So cute!

  3. That lilac dress with the sheer top and tiny pleating details is absolutely precious precious!

  4. I want all those dresses especially Monet's Garden dress and that cute little two piece apple outfit! Gah!

  5. Oh, how fun are all of these.

    That bridge is very like the one at Givenchy, but I don't think it is though. the print has pine trees, which aren't at Givenchy... (Yes, I was that obsessed child who had a pop up of that garden....)

  6. So many beautiful dresses and housewares. Your Friday faves are the best <3

  7. Everything here is super adorable and beautiful. I just came across your blog and it is so gorgeous and totally my style. Love your outfits. I'm your newest follower.

  8. I used to convince myself I didn't like pastels when really I truly love them. I plan on fully embracing them this spring!
