I was curled up watching New Girl tonight and thanking JESS HAS THE BEST PAJAMAS (which is how the adorable Afterhours Satin Pajamas in Hat Print ended up above). I usually lurk around in the yellow robe I wore in last week's Friday Favorites, a vintage nightie OR my Harry Potter Snuggie (pictured). Yep, that's right... Harry. Potter. Snuggie (although I'm bummed because they only come in Gryffindor and I'm a Ravenclaw).
Then I started thinking about other things that make me excited about "staying in". Besides reading, drinking tea and grabbing a pillow to hug while binge watching random TV shows, I absolutely love to bake so the things above are just a little sampling of what makes me happy when I'm relaxing. And the Kit Kat Clock... well that's just there because it's awesome.
"Rockabilly Dress" by Maggie Tang in Red Rose
Fuchsia Floral Print Bow Front Dress
I like to bookmark things I see over the week and come back to them when I write my Friday Favorites post. I didn't actually notice they were all patterned until the end of the week! This week, I was also stoked to stumble across this little Martini Glass Brooch for $7! Anyway, for the first time in years, florals are starting to grow on me. They sort of remind me of wallpaper but really badass old grandma's house wallpaper, and that's awesome.
I stumbled across a new brand and am curious to try it, it's called Maggie Tang. It seems very akin to Lindy Bop, and they make the Red Rose Dress above. Have anyone ever purchased a Mage Tang Dress before? Also, the little love letters on the Day After Day Dress in Yours Truly are pretty damn cute.
One of my favorite online gal pals, Kristin a/k/a Super Space Chick is a comic connoisseur. We like to randomly instagram, tweet + email each other things from time to time that we think the other would like and in one of my recent emails, I found a recommendation for this comic! It's called Lady Killer and it was released by Dark Horse Comics. Josie Schuller is a homemaker + housewife but with a twist... she's also an assassin. She's described as Betty Draper meets Hannibal. I've already read it three times, I LOVED it.
So, over the last couple of weeks Pinup Girl Clothing showed a sneaky peak of some of their new novelty prints! Extending their Fairytale Fantasy collection/continuing their collection of Disney-inspired prints )which currently Snow White + Peter Pan with a mermaid print + castle print) will be an Alice in Wonderland print (left). Alice is near and dear to me, so I'm incredibly excited. They also posted a picture of this beautiful ballerina print drawn by their very own, Micheline Pitt. Both prints are absolutely amazing and I have to say, depending on what items they end up being printed on, I think I might have to snag one of each!
