Etsy Sale

Since Valentines is just around the corner, we thought it would be fun to have a little sale on Etsy. Etsy is a great place to shop when you are out of town, can’t sleep, at work, or snowed in:)

One of our very favorite dresses.

I Heart Mondays!

29 11 2010

Hey Y’all,

Happy Holidays everyone!

So, what I heart the most about this Monday is… this Young Tradition’s coat! I walked in this morning and instantly feel in love.  It’s not going to be here for long, so if you love it as much as I do, come see me.

It’s perfect for weather like this- add a little color to a grey day like today!

At Roulette, we love bright colors, boots and blue jeans!  There’s no need to go all drab for fall.  Think of all those great fall leaf colors.  Burgundy, red, yellow, orange and the blue of the sky.
