They're here!

My birthday gift to myself arrived today!!! (OK, one of my gifts to myself...)

I needed a sweater jacket so that I could wear sleeveless shirts and t-shirts in the fall/winter. And to keep warm in the A/C here at work. So, of course, I went to Etsy. I haven't bought myself any clothing on Etsy yet, so I took my time browsing.

This ice garden jacket from Ahpeele immediately caught and held my attention. I had to have it. So I bought it. I wasn't too sure on sizing. I'm normally a medium... but I wanted to be sure it fit perfectly. Thankfully, Ahpeele has measurements in each of her listings, and I decided to go with large. I'm glad I did, because the fit is perfect ~ roomy enough to wear something underneath when it's cold out.

So Ahpeele is having a summer sale. I'm not sure how long it's going to run for, but if you buy any 2 articles, you get a free surprise t-shirt! Of couse I can't resist a free surprise!

It was difficult to choose a second shirt. I was torn. But I eventually settled on the Japanese koi t-shirt in navy. The front is pretty and simple, with some stylized clouds on the front. But the back is what kept bringing me back to this shirt:You can't even begin to see how awesome it is from this photo. Go check out the listing in Ahpeele. Honestly, as soon as I put it on, "F*** YEAH!" escaped from my mouth. It's that wonderful!
This is my free shirt: It's sleeveless, with a loose, collar-less neckline and in the prettiest slate gray. It features two thorny roses on the left side. I love everything! The quality is superb ~ definitely something you'd find in high-end retail shops. But sooooo much better because it's handmade by Hiromi and AdAm! And shipping was extremely fast! Go check out Ahpeele today ~ you won't be disappointed!
