New obsession

My routine has been disturbed. The kids don't have school today and I have an extra child here today because of a sleepover. On top of that, I'm slightly less mobile than normal due to a leg punishing weight training session yesterday. I'm pretty much useless today. I've been muttering swear words with every step. Going from a standing to sitting position results in involuntary screams. So I thought it would be best if I just sat at the table all day with my laptop. Moving as little as possible until my husband comes home and I can soak in my lovely jetted tub.

Anyway, I've been looking up vintage clothing on the Internet. I'm in love with the way women dressed in the 40's and 50's. I hate to age myself but I would love to be one of those women who cooks and cleans in a dress and heels and dons an apron and pearls. Seriously, it's odd. Because I typically dress myself in clothes from the juniors section of stores. I can't help it. It always seemed like such a big step to move on the "women's" clothing.

So I was looking for dresses and blouses and was able to find a lot on Etsy but the problem I found there was that the ones I really liked were hundreds of dollars or the cheaper ones were a bit frumpy and ugly. Then I came across this beautiful site called ModCloth. And oh my dear LORD, I've never seen so many awesome dresses on one site!! The only problem is that almost EVERY SINGLE ONE I wanted was out of stock! UGH, frustrating. Anyway, they are a bit on the pricey side but REALLY adorable.
