It's that old devil moon in your eyes

My apartment is surrounded by Dogwood trees that have suddenly burst into full bloom over the past week.  It makes the trees look like they have little bits of antique lace hanging from each branch.  So pretty and delicate and Victorian meets Jazz Age!  All whimsy and exuberance and pixie dust.

I have decided to dress the part.  My fingernails are painted the color of frosted lilacs, and I went on a bit of an accessories spree yesterday on amazing, splendiferous Etsy site Bungalow.  I wish this girl lived in DC so that we could go shopping together!  Her site is amazing.  She actually has Sunday Best corsages that make me want to wear ribbons down my back and go buy fresh flowers at the farmer's market, then alternate between reading Everybody Was So Young and This Side of Paradise.

See my purchases below.  What do you think?
