It's not quite over...

I have always been a little (a lot) impatient, so transitioning between seasons is a slightly difficult time for me. All the new styles of the upcoming season look so bright and shiny and new, I just can't wait to try them all out! So, I have been working to remind myself to savor what I have. The last remaining weeks (or months, depending on where you live) of warm weather means enjoying dresses without tights, wearing all those beautiful sandals you've purchased, and enjoying a beer while grilling out with friends and family.  In honor of the fact that summer is not quite over, here is a selection of wonderful items that will surely help you enjoy this transition :) 

Classic Maxi Drapped Long Dress
Boyfriend White Buttondown w/ Eggshell Blue Linen Poppy Pin
Fabric Flower Headband
Spring Awakening Maxi Dress

brought back to life

Here at gracie b. we tend to enjoy the simpler things in life and take great pride in finding beauty in items that would have otherwise been headed for a trash heap.  Over the last several weekends I've spent a significant amount of time getting my office reorganized and decorated to properly reflect the gracie b. aesthetic. 

My first project was this chair, a $15 find at a local thrift store that now serves as a beautiful place to sit.  I truly wish I had a picture of the way it originally looked to show how worn down this chair was. The frame was a nicked and scratched oak color, with a dingy blue seat cushion.  It did take a little sweat and perseverance, but after some sanding and primer, several spray cans of white lacquer and a trip to JoAnn's to find this beautiful blue and green lattice fabric, suddenly an unloved chair becomes a beautiful piece of furniture!

At some point I would LOVE to incorporate a home decor section into the shop... but I have to remind myself that Rome was not built in a day :) For now, here are a few wonderfully revived items currently in the shop! Happy Shopping!
