The flowers are blooming, the bees are buzzing, the birds are chirping, and I'm... online shopping.
It's 102 degrees outside and I have A/C; can you really blame me??

I LOVE window-shopping online! I like hearting things on Etsy, putting items on my eBay watch list, and saving for later on Amazon. It's all the fun of shopping, without having to pay for anything! Plus it helps me keep track of the things I want, and the things I actually need.
*Why are the things I need, never-ever as much fun as the things I want? Bleh!
This is the Summer of Gingham for me. I'm obsessed with finding the perfect gingham dress, with the perfect price tag.

And since this past anniversary Husband complained that "women should just say what they want, and not hope their husbands get it right," I thought I'd start a little weekly wish list. (Notice the title of this post is Wish List Wednesday?? Ha! My cousin came into town and I never published this!)
Pay attention Husband! Hehe!!
I would die to find a vintage 50's gingham dress. But it is near impossible for me to find vintage dresses with my waist size. (Seriously, who has a 24 inch waist?? Is it time for a girdle??)
|Yeah, I don't see myself getting this excited over a GIRDLE!|

Dollydagger, an adorable retro shop out of Brighton, UK, has this sweet little number available...

But of course Trashy Diva is leading the pack with the Hopscotch Dress. I posted it before, but it deserves a second mention. It is too-too cute, and too-too pricey for me right now. *sigh*
