This week: marigold and sunshiney yellow for an extra boost of energy. I need it. It’s the week before Valentine’s Day, which means it’s officially go-time.

Last week was a doozy. We were unpleasantly surprised by a few unexpected expenses, our landlords put the shop’s building up for sale, our delivery van is in all kinds of disrepair, and the shop is slower than we’d like because, ugh, summer. There’s more, but, you catch the drift.

See: sack dress, take 1. I think I tried on six different belts with this dress today. It was a three little bears style dilemma.

I checked Pinterest, and Olivia Palermo’s done it, so it must be acceptable.
