I get some West coast traffic here on girldust, so I thought it would be fun to share the ModCloth IRL Event that will be happening in Los Angeles April 9-11. For the first time ever, you’ll be able to see some of ModCloth’s vintage inspired pieces in person, get fitted by professionals, and try on your favorites before you buy.
I’ve personally always been more comfortable shopping online, but I know tons of people who aren’t! There’s an absolute benefit to seeing clothes in person, and being able to try them on, especially when it comes to dresses with vintage silhouettes! And because ModCloth has always been an online vendor (and were around in my LiveJournal days), this event is sort of be like meeting an old, old internet friend for the first time in person. You’ll be able to actually talk to a few of the folks behind-the-scenes.
If you manage to attend, maybe come back and tell me all about it. Sometimes I like to hear about how the “other half” lives. You know. Social people. ♥
Here are a couple springtime(ish) looks with some of my favorite ModCloth pieces.
Spring in New England is great layering weather (actually layering is necessary most of the year), and I like to lighten up my normally dark wardrobe just a bit with some paler neutrals. Spring is also an appropriate time to bust out the florals.
The event itself is free, but requires an RSVP.

Our “anniversary” is coming up, and I am feeling a little misty and romantic. I have a really wonderful partner (who sometimes has a black-red-grey pirate beard and glasses and oh my goodness), and it kind of blows my mind. Sometimes that’s a little overwhelming. That’s probably not a normal way to process feelings of love, but I think my normal is probably not your normal, or the normal. I’m sure that’s the case with most folks, though; default settings vary.
Maybe it’s not even the love. Sometimes I become overwhelmed about pancakes.
Maybe it is the love. Pancakes are great.

I seem to have camping, wandering, and star gazing on my mind, this week. Summer is slowly fading. I’m hoping to make the final weeks before the leaves change last as long as possible.
I suppose, if I do the math, I have had at least as many adult summers as I’ve had childhood summers (I’m 30, and we’ll say summers started at age 5 and lasted until age 19), but it doesn’t feel that way. It feels as though the summers of my younger years stretched endlessly, and I still live partially in the mindset where I expect that extended break. I am always a little disappointed when I realize that time away does not currently exist for me. I have to get out of bed and face and world and brush my teeth and pay for things. I hope to recapture that floating feeling of freedom at the end of August with campfires, ocean-side bike rides, and books for hours, even if it only lasts five days. I am thankful to have the perfect person to escape the world with.

A reboot! Friday Favorites is back! Retail therapy. Lately, my money is being stashed for gradschool and our end-of-August camping trip. I’m happy with this, but there are always things to dream of. I have a hard time letting go of my desires for material possessions. I think that will always be a work in progress. Also interesting to note: my style is becoming more and more feminine as weeks go by. Admittedly, there is a part of me that worries my short hair makes me look a little more androgynous than I would like to appear. That’s not to say I haven’t skirted the line in the past and enjoyed it, but these days, I am feeling comfortably soft.
Thanks for stopping by. My name is Naomi, and this space is made of girldust. This blog is a picture of my comfortably scattered life on the coast of Maine. I'm trying to be a slightly better version of myself every day. I like old houses, reading, the ocean, ghost stories, and museums. You can learn a little bit more about me here.
