I went to an antique fair today with the intention of getting a bookshelf, a writing desk and a dresser. I found none of those things.

Instead, I found this little ditty.

It’s the perfect mix of Eastern Europe and the 80s, two things I love very much.

And it’s way cooler than a bookshelf. Funny how you can go looking for something and be perfectly happy you didn’t find it, isn’t it?

    Cute but I’m still waiting to see you in a vintage Canucks jersey.

    Genius – kinda reminds me of the little bolero that you have. Will pair nicely with the sundresses.

    I think the detail is wonderful on it. It’s classy and definitely has a more European flair to it. When I look at it…it’s almost as if designed for casual royalty. But I still hope you find your bookshelf
