A citizen of rosebud
I am fortunate enough to live in the same town as vibrant blogger/savant Bella of the Citizen Rosebud and to have attended a few of her fab vintage clothes selling events. I procured an amazing hang ten striped t shirt, a bee print dress and a super cute cape, just to name a few of my treasures she made available for sale at very reasonable prices. We have had fun talking, eating and trying on vintage clothes. She has featured me on her blog and it has been overwhelming to see myself so much! I love the pictures she took and am lucky she has shined her kindness my way! I created a tribute annsemble as a way of saying thanks, the citizen rosebud is my inspiration.
