July Favorites with The Soubrette Brunette

For the July installment of my monthly favorites series, where I introduce you to some of my favorite bloggers, who introduce you to what items they're coveting for the month, I couldn't be happier to introduce you to Sammi. I fell in love with her blog, the Soubrette Brunette, pretty much the moment I clicked on it. She has the best collection of beautiful dresses and quirky jewelry, has such an enthusiasm for clothing and blogging, is gorgeous, and on top of it all, is ridiculously sweet. If all of that wasn't enough, she also manages to make me drool over her finds every week. I'm sure you'll all love her picks as much as I do, and make sure to stop by her blog as well! —Elana

Hi, everyone!  I'm Sammi from The Soubrette Brunette.  I'm an actress and singer with a love for all things vintage, retro, kitschy and adorable.  I'm also an avid follower of Elana's lovely blog (isn't she just the cutest??), and I was so flattered when she reached out to me to ask if I'd like to feature a few items I've been coveting as part of guest blogger series for this month!  I tried to give a balanced sampling of the kinds of pieces to which I'm drawn, from novelty prints to kawaii-inspired items.  I post an admittedly-lengthy Friday Favorites post every week featuring these types of pieces, and I'm a Pinterest fiend, so narrowing down my choices was actually the hardest part!  Thank you so very much for featuring me as your July guest blogger, Elana!  I hope you all enjoy my picks.  :)

First up is this beyond adorable plaid beach set from Trashy Diva.  I've been lusting after it for quite a while now, but I think it's perfect for those hot July days.  The colors are wonderful (they make me think of summers on the boardwalk), and the little buttons are so cute!

Speaking of things that remind me of summer, these kawaii style ice cream sneakers take the cake... or ice cream, rather!  I'm a lover of pastels, as well as any and all food-themed clothing items!

My love of food-themed items continues with this amazing popcorn bag from Kate Spade.  She has a whole cinema line that I absolutely adore.

I don't know about you, but whenever I go into Anthropologie, I head straight for the housewares section.  Anthro has some beautiful clothes, but their little kitchen items are so pretty and are priced extremely well, all things considered.  I recently found these really neat pH color test glasses and caraffe that look like they've come out of a particularly artsy science lab:

Isn't this vintage daisy dress the sweetest?  I think I've saved pretty much everything from Crush Vintage in my Etsy favorites list by now.

And finally, one of my favorite fashion elements: the novelty print.  Bernie Dexter knows how to highlight a great print with a flattering, retro silhouette, and this dress of hers is my new favorite:

Thanks for checking out my most-coveted July picks!  Hope to see you around my blog!  :)
