The harlequin prints from Pinup Girl Clothing continue to grow on me. I got this purple and green colorway on a Facebook swap and sell group (the dress version supposed to be coming back later this year), and while I'm glad I own it, it's very clear to me that it was put in the washing machine (and maybe even dried). I got it for a good price, but even so, it's annoying when people don't disclose the state of their garments when selling them. And as a general PSA: don't throw expensive items like these in the wash! I always dry clean my PUG dresses, and even for the stuff I do wash myself (like the peasant and vamp tops), I always wash on cold and always line-dry. You can't really tell from these photos, but this skirt has pilling and has faded a bit, and I also bought another vamp top that definitely went through the dryer. I know dry cleaning is expensive, but I'd much rather pay a little more to keep an expensive piece in great condition than even risk the chance of ruining it completely. Just a little laundering tip to start off your Monday morning. :)

I moved most of my stuff into my new apartment this weekend, but it's a bit of a process. I won't have electricity until Tuesday (and probably won't have internet 'til next week), so it gives me a bit of time to space things out, which makes it a bit less stressful. It's gonna be beautiful when it's all done, and I can't wait to show you guys! My first week of work went pretty well, and I'm hoping this week will have me feeling less overwhelmed with all there is to learn. I'm also hoping my backlog of blog photos will last for a little while until I get settled!
Have a great Monday!
