After the longest time of procrastinating my little shop is starting to take shape.
It is far from perfect and I don’t know if anyone else has ever experienced anything similar when starting an online shop – even one as small as mine – but whenever I have taken pictures of my stock, I have felt that it hasn’t represented me or the way I had hoped it would look. Which is so frustrating and feels so inconsistent.
In a sense my personal style is the same. I am split into two ways. For example on the one side I hate owning more than I need, anything I buy always needs to be fit for purpose and I feel I must have bordered on seeming callous at times as I rarely keep anything unless I completely adore it or it is truly sentimental.
Then there is the other side of me and this side LOVES EVERYTHING.
I see the potential in every shoe, belt and dress, I dream about putting outfits together all day every day, with stripes and florals and lace and beading all of which must make me look like a total loon when i’m thrifting, trolling around charity shops with armfuls of mismatched goodies.

I’m telling you this I think so that you understand a little more about me, my evolving style and the process I go through when choosing treasures for my shop.
Or maybe also a little selfishly, I think to perhaps excuse my little shop and I somewhat, while she and I find our feet and of course some perfect little shoes too.
