It was only two weeks ago that I was gushing about one of my favorite brands, Fleet Collection, and then I got the saddest news delivered to my email inbox last Friday! Fleet Collection is going out of business!! What?!! I was so sad and wish I had known about them sooner. Even though they have been in business for the last four years, I have only known about them for a short time. I had plans to order many more pieces from them and just like that, they are gone. The blow was only slightly softened by the huge discount they are giving for their closing sale. They started to sell out of things very quickly and I’m so glad I got the email when I did, because I was able to snag three beautiful dresses. If you act quickly and check out their website there may still be a few things left. Owners Eileen Chai & Lisa Hsieh sent out a sweet thank you email to all of their customers explaining that they are closing Fleet Collection because they are both starting their own separate ventures. I am sad to see Fleet Collection close, but excited to see what they do next and wish them nothing but the best. I am especially excited for Eileen’s new clothing line, Apricity! It is still a vintage inspired line that looks a lot like everything I loved about Fleet Collection. I actually got my first Apricity dress in the mail today and let me tell you, IT’S AMAZING!! It is so beautifully made and fits like a glove. I am so excited to take photos in it this weekend to share with you all! I seriously love it so much and I highly encourage you to check out Apricity. So I guess it’s not all sad news….when one vintage inspired clothing shop closes, another one opens. ;) Goodbye, Fleet Collection, you will be greatly missed.

Truly,

Tamara

Sunny Days Ahead

Remember the gorgeous sunny weather I wrote about in my last blog post? Well it’s all a distant memory, and all I have to remember it by are these photos. We woke up to cold and dreary weather on Tuesday and it’s been downhill from there. It even snowed on Wednesday! I obviously keep forgetting that I live in Michigan and there is no guarantee of nice weather until at least June. Even then we get three, maybe four months of good weather and then it’s back to cold. I really should look into moving somewhere warm and tropical, I am so not built for this! Sorry to be such a downer, but isn’t it amazing how the weather directly effects your mood and energy level? All I want to do is lay around and watch Netflix in my pajamas. I’m in desperate need of some vitamin D, maybe I should look into getting one of those sun lamps. Anyone know if they work?

Yellow is one of my favorite colors and this sunny outfit helps lift my spirits a little. This adorable skirt is made by a brand I discovered a few months ago called Fleet Collection. All of their pieces are original designs made in Los Angeles and they are so beautifully crafted. I was really impressed with the quality, especially for the price, and it fits like a dream. If you love vintage inspired clothing as much as I do, then I highly suggest you check them out. You will not be disappointed.

Well I am definitely going to be praying that this weekend warms up and that the sun re-appears! What is the weather like where you are? I hope it’s lovely.

Truly,

Tamara
