Accomplishments...

How am I supposed to accomplish anything when the days are passing at warp speed?

Birthday week is feeling very un-birthday-like which is a bummer.

Last year I celebrated for a month.. it appears as though this year will be much more mellow.

Anyways, for those who asked about my order from Downeast Basics clothing.. it has arrived and I'm in LOOOVE.

The picture below is very bad quality (cell phone pic), but I wanted to show you what the clothes look like in real life. I'll definitely be ordering from them again.

I ordered this skirt (summer leaves), the Orchard Skirt, the Southstreet skirt and the wonder tee (in cream which can also be seen below). The Orchard skirt is super fun and bright, and the Southstreet skirt is beyond comfortable.

I wear a size six normally (although I'm pudgy as you can see below).. and ordered the skirts and shirts in Size Medium. The skirts fit perfectly (they are actually a little large, but may shrink as they are 100% cotton). The shirt on the other hand is a tiny bit tighter than I would like, but it works.



Get thee booty to Downeast Basics and place an order. Oh, and let me know what you get if you do.

I was just going to say that.

I took a look at the site the other day and found a ton of cute things, but I wanted to wait and see what your verdict was first.
=)

And thanks for giving us an idea on how the sizes rank. I was a little worried about that too...
Another reason I hesitated to order...

hahha that's a skinny mirror! I swear.

Anyways, you'd probably be just fine with a small.

Although the sizes say different.. I'm willing to bed that a Small is more like a 2/4 whereas a medium is a 6/8 and so on.

and that's bet. not bed.

I see no pudge! I was also waiting to see how you liked the items before buying things myself. Thanks for the tips on the sizing. I'll let you know what I buy!

So, I know this was a looonnng time ago for you, but I was wondering if you could give me a tip about the south street skirt. I just bought one thinking it was really cute, but I can't seem to think of what to wear with it. Quite a complex indeed. Do you have any ideas or tips for me? thanks so much!
