Arts & Crafts (an outfit post)

 Outfit Details:
Scenic Painting Umbrella Skirt: ROMWE (see other ones here, here and here!)
Black mock turtleneck: Target (a few years back)
Gray stockings: Borrowed from Mom's collection
Lady in Rad Boots in Ink: ModCloth

Isn't this skirt divine?  When I saw Kate from Scathingly Brilliant wearing it in an outfit post not too long ago, my mouth dropped open because the same skirt was hanging in my closet, waiting to be worn!  It's such a cool print, and the print seamlessly continues onto the back (it repeats, but does so flawlessly).  In retrospect, I wish I had paired a long necklace with this outfit for one extra thing, but alas.  Next time!

Last weekend, my mom and I went to this great co-op here in Rochester.  There are a ton of stores there, offering everything from antiques to homemade goods.  We had been there once before, and I had seen this set of four beautiful cafe chairs (they were each painted a different pastel color and the seats were covered in pastel plaid and gingham fabrics).  They were having a 20% off everything sale, and I had hoped these chairs (which I hadn't stopped thinking about since we saw them) were still there, as they would have been a wonderful addition to Steven's and my future apartment.  I was heartbroken to discover that the chairs were gone, and was kicking myself for not insisting we purchase them when we spotted them! I swear that next time I find some beautiful, reasonably-priced metal cafe chairs, I will be buying them on the spot and painting them myself.

Luckily, with over 200 stores at the co-op, there was at least one thing that caught my eye: a vintage wood purse with decoupaged wild mushrooms!  And it was only $7 with the 20% off sale!

I also liked this hat (which was also very inexpensive, especially when you compare it to of all the similar hats listed on Etsy), but the shape looked pretty silly on my head.  I'd like to be more of a hat-wearing girl, but I think my head is too large to look good in a majority of them.  I mostly just admire them on other people.  I can rock a fascinator with the best of them, though.

Although the location of this place is a bit out of the way for us, I'm eager to go back at some point soon.  I should have taken a pictures of the white and orange retro hutch and old fridge they had.  I also can't wait to pair the purse with an outfit... and I already have one in mind!!  :)

Have a nice, restful Sunday!
