Happy Thursday! i have found myself sick and way behind on all things this week..i'm hoping to be feeling better tomorrow so i can enjoy being at work and then to be able to work at night..i have allot of catching up to do and preparation for this Sunday's photo-shoot with the lovely Steph!
i have a few things up my sleeve in the coming weeks and can't wait to share! as well as FINALLY shooting and posting my hand made necklaces and scarf's i spoke about in this previous post ages ago bellavintage handmade..
on this day it was Zoe's last day of school dinner and blue belt advancement for Aikido! she couldn't be happier to be done with school and i couldn't be prouder of her accomplishments!
i wore this pretty floral 1970's wrap dress, very comfortable made of cotton, i happen to have heels from the 1950's that matched perfectly with the dress..perfect coincidence..
dress: vintage 70's floral wrap dress
shoes: vintage 50's tri-color heels
i so miss my beautiful photographer Zoe, she has taken quite an interest in photography lately and she purposely took the 1st photo at an angle to capture the sun glare...love to see her creativity flowing..
hope your all having a lovely night!

Happy Tuesday! while i was doing research i came across the look book of Belgium Designer Dominique Ver Eecke Autumn/Winter 2010 and i fell in love...i adore his use of vintage prints influenced from children's books...so colorful and fun just perfect for children's wear..
after Misha LuLu i have to say this collection is a favorite...i will definitly be following his brand!

Happy Monday!...not so much for me because as you guys know Zoe is off in Miami..i was all nerves when she was on that red eye on Saturday night, i was not able to sleep until Sunday at 5:00 a.m. until she arrived safely in her Dad's hands.
so what this week entails for me to make these months fly by faster is lots of work and lots of hanging out with all my special gal pal friends...i was able to do this on Sunday with my pal Laura we went to the Melrose flea market to see what treasures were in the piles...i did get a perfect summer time dress which i'll be picking up next week..
mean time i will be posting lots on le blog and packing up the store with beautiful vintage garments perfect for summer which officially started today!
for tonight i will tweet to my Zola and hear one Justin Bieber song as promised in her absence...i'll do anything for that cutie, even listen to Sir Justin....he's not so bad..

Happy Tuesday! i haven't been the best at blogging these last few weeks, it's been a struggle on keeping a strict to consistent schedule...i am working hard to getting on a good track and well with Zoe's departure this weekend this will give me more time to take on more work.
my baby is taking off to Miami to her dad's for an amazing summer full of family and friends..
i took these beautiful pictures of her before she left me to my lonesome..looking at these and pictures a month back she just keeps growing and changing literally over night..i can't imagine how much taller and different she will look 2 months from now when she gets back..wowza
she's been enjoying taking lots of pictures lately and has become quite the photographer, these are just a few of many that she took of lady bugs in our front lawn..
i will miss her soo..this week will be a bit slow for me in blog post and shop updates while i get Zoe ready for her big trip Saturday..i'm coming back with full gusto next week with lots of new photo-shoots, new model and lots of amazing new inventory to show off..
hope your all having a great night

happy Sunday ALL! this weekend was limited work for Bella because i'm preparing for my Zoe's departure to Miami for the summer..she will be gone for a full two months so by next week i will be putting allot more attention to the shop!
it's bitter sweet because i miss her sooo but at the same time as a single mom who is juggling a full time job plus my night time gig with Bella it will be a bit easier to come home and basically only worry on having to feed myself and catch up on minuet task around the house..oh and a little hanging time with friends!
i had a photo-shoot today with the lovely Stephanie which we cancelled and rescheduled for next Sunday; which works out so i may have a bigger update for the following week..besides me and Zoe need to spend as much time as possible..
but i did do a small update this weekend with the cutest slouchy sweaters, in the SHOP now:
vintage 1980's floral hand loomed slouch sweater
vintage 1980's floral appliqué loose knit sweater
vintage 1980's electric blue slouchy cardigan
vintage 1980's new wave abstract slouch sweater

Happy Wednesday all! leggings are my best friend for those days i want to be comfortable and loose not like the restraint feeling that you sometimes get from jeans. i lived in leggings in Elementary and never thought i would see the day they would come back..i actually went thrifting for them back in 2005 just for around the house use so it's little weird that i'm wearing some of my child hood clothes..maybe not the fact about the look because it's like our parents wearing bell bottoms but more of the fact that they are now considered vintage along with all the 90 Grunge dress's..i have to wrap my head around that one since it's over 20 years old..eeks
this red door also caught my eye! i loved all the contrast in it and it's rustiness..there is so much going on within it...and with the grainy look of the pictures..an happy accident
vintage 80's mesh jumper: available in the shop now bellavintage
leggings: Harajuku Lovers
sandels: Urban Outfitters
necklace: hand made antique skeleton keys (coming soon to the shop)
and my lovely photographer Zoe..she's the best!

GOOD Tuesday to you! i almost forgot to mention about our sponsorship over at MouseVox Vintage. We are very smitten with Miss Rachel's great blog, and through out these months of interacting with her i can surely say she is one of the sweetest bloggers on the block...so it was a given that i would love to sponsor her blog once she opened it up for sponsor ships this month.
she not only Blogs but runs her own On-Line vintage shops both on Etsy and auctions on eBay and soon to be in Market Publique..some of the reasons i have been a loyal follower of hers, is because i quite enjoy her Style Post and her Blog To Note Post; which has been a great source on learning about other bloggers out there...
so go check her blog out HERE and check out the other sponsors too!
