Purchases at Plain and Fancy

The end of last month I was in nearby Rochester, MI on business, and afterwards I stopped in at one of my favorite shops, Plain and Fancy.

While there I purchased a cute blue jacket that I thought would be nice for cool nights. It resembles a denim jacket from the front, but the back has a lace inset with a gathered peplum. 

I also found a cute set of four tea-themed ceramic coasters by Mary Lake-Thompson, Inc.

After I got the jacket home I decided it would be fun to embellish it with a lace teacup and teapot applique set from a vendor [Zoey Story] on Etsy.  I didn't realize until after I placed my order that the vendor was in China, but to my delight the appliques arrived very quickly.

I machine sewed them on right away, and wore the jacket to the riverboat dinner cruise that I've already blogged about.  The appliques are perfect for a tea lover, and I like their addition to my jacket.


  1. You made a cute jacket even cuter!

  2. Your new top is lovely, and with your newest additions of tea themed embroidery, it really is unique and special!
    I think I may have been in that shop about 5 years ago, were there open then? Wish I could pop in today : ) Thank you for your sharing about how you have had trouble with blogger too.
