drest friend













my closet has been a bit of a wreck since we moved and up until today i hadn't touched two of the four wardrobe boxes i had stuffed in there. prompted by visits to a few vintage shops over in the lower east side yesterday i decided today to visit with some of my favourite treasures. i've been a very bad caretaker and have on display quite a wrinkly lot of dresses (ohh steamer, i dream of you) but i'm sharing them with you regardless! some on display for their sentimental value (first blue dress is my all time favourite - a christmas gift from landon our second year together) and others are new friends that i've yet to slip into (the wonderful fur collared with bows and buttons wedding dress). if you're curious to see more i've uploaded heaps of them over here!

  14. I have a very off-topic comment. Rather, question.
    My boyfriend and I. Landon and yourself. You seem so in love. Even through pictures, the love radiates through.
    You remind me of us when we were starting out. We're past a year now, and things are starting to get a bit difficult. We don't yell and scream, just argue. We love eachother so much, but the constant bickering is becoming too much.

    My question is, Did you and Landon ever go through such a phase? If so, when, and how did you make it through it?
    I just want to know that love like yours isn't always easy, and that if you could make it through such times, maybe other couples can as well.

    I know this is such a strange and personal thing to write to someone, but I thought I could try..
    Thank-You.

  20. Ashli, the best thing i can say is that while romance will ebb and flow a strong friendship will always be steady! landon and i are most certainly not always gazing amorously into eyeballs but we always enjoy to be in each other's company. i feel like too many people give up on a relationship when the fireworks have gone quiet. i hope the best for you and yours!
