Friday Favorites

Ahh, I'm so happy it's Friday! This week has been great, but now that we're a little more settled, I'm excited to maybe do some exploring this weekend. These photos are some of my favorites from last weekend. While the early snow was strange for us, I think Zebby and Zephyr we're a little more confused. We have a lovely window in our new dining nook, and Zeb took some time to admire the snowfall from the kitchen table on Saturday morning. The kitties are very much enjoying their new home, with new stairs to zip up and down, and new wildlife to obsess over through the window (a wide variety of wild rabbits, one enormous groundhog, and some excessively friendly squirrels). We're all settling in nicely.

Thank you all so much for your incredibly kind and supportive words on my post last friday! I'm so excited to be working where I am, and so excited to see where Orchid Grey will go in the future. Hanna asked me what exactly my job entails, and basically my job is split in two: half my time is spent dreaming up blog posts for the ModCloth blog, and the other half is spent composing product descriptions (like this one). Any more questions? Feel free to ask!

Below are just a few of the things I've been loving this week. My imaginary shopping cart is full as usual:

Have you seen Ruche's new look? The whole site looks amazing, and I'm loving this lace dress.

I cannot get enough of these earrings from Noble Town Vintage, they're so simple and understated.

Wouldn't this skirt look amazing with an oversize black sweater and tights? I love the bright colors.

I can't wait to get these boots in the mail, I love the color and they look so cozy! DOn't forget, you can receive 15% off your order form Blowfish Shoes with the code BFORCHID15!

This sheer top would look great with dark skinny jeans and a cardigan, I love the pattern. Plus, you can receive 15% off your order by using the checkout code orchidgrey!

I've been obsessed with this perfume since receiving a sample during NYFW, it smells so fresh and happy!

Umm, I'm in love with this. #catlady


Have a wonderful weekend!

vintage ferragamo's can totally be a tough find, especially with size and style and quality. as with any vintage shopping, there is always an element of the hunt, but i have been fortunate to live in two places in my recent years, ithaca and suburban northern new jersey, where rich old ladies like to donate clothes to places like the junior league.

i cannot vouch for vintage clothing shopping in your neck of the woods, but, for antiques, you are near the mecca, adamstown. if you like cocktail ware, jewelry, handbags, furniture, kitchen ware, you will find incredible things, for great prices, if you know how to look.

I just wanna say that, after looking
the photo of a cat. I felt sad, thinking of my cat. She is now in heaven.
