Better make it count.

So, obviously, the best part of buying clothes for a store is the fact that you get to wear them! I can't wait until I have a Brick and Mortar and can shop designers and such! Who knows when (or where) that will be, but I would like to make it happen. About 10 years ago I made a list of things I wanted to accomplish. It included learning to cut hair, learning to sew, and opening a children's bookstore. So far, I've checked off two of three! Unfortunately, a children's bookstore made a lot more sense 10 years ago. I think any store will do in achieving the goal, though. Actually, I'm hoping it can blossom into two goals and I can do something else children's book related (ie: write a story). The silly thing is, there was one more thing on the list that I can't remember. I guess it must not have been very important! Sometimes it's motivating to share your dreams with others...so...thanks for listening. :)

No matter what happens, the most important goal I have will always be enjoying the simple things in life and spending as much time as possible with those I love.

Anyway, here's my outfit. :)








Wearing:

Blouse: Fancytreehouse Vintage
Pants: Fancytreehouse Vintage
Shoes: Fancytreehouse Vintage
Purse: Fancytreehouse Vintage
Socks: c/o Chicwish


It's already Wednesday! I'm going to try to make it count. ♥ Lately, Gabe and I are feeling very motivated and very anxious. It's a good thing!

  2. HaHa good luck! You should read the Dream Job ecourse by Elsie (The Beautifull Mess)... she writes about how she set up her vintage store brick and mortal and online. You guys have a very similar vision. Good luck with whatever you´ll decide, you´ll be great! :D

  8. I'm always making lists of things I would like to accomplish.. they're worth it purely for the satisfaction of crossing items off! Oh and I love your trousers, such a beautiful shade of peach :) x

  9. I've always thought it would be fun to write a children's book. The floral print of your socks and top are darling. Your outfits always look like beautiful desserts!

  22. Love that pattern play with those adorable socks and your printed blouse....So Coury, so Fancy! Can't wait to see you knock off everything on your checklist babes...maybe a children's wear line perhaps? My good friend just debuted his 5/6? season of golf-inspired wear for kids and it's been picked up by everyone and their mamas....I could totally see you going that route...If you have a moment, swing by my blog I just did a feature on the line...

  27. Coury, if you ever find yourself in need of an assistant, once your store gets bigger (and it will)-I would love to work for you. You're such an inspiration. Makes me want to go for all of my hopes and dreams.

  37. Coury, I owned a brick and mortar store in San Francisco that sold vintage and new, so let me tell you this: it is much easier than you think and you should just go for it, pretty lady! It would be fantastic.

  38. Go for it! Maybe don't focus on children's books, but you can can have them in your fabulous store! :)

  39. To my point of view that's what I call a flawless article! Do you use this website for personal goals only or you still exploit it profit wise?
