I apologize for being completely MIA for the past two weeks, my latest shoulder injury has been consuming much of my life thus far. I decided to take a break and attempt to fast-track the healing process by abstaining from pretty much everything for as long as possible. Well, I made it two weeks…and now I’m back in action, ready to jump back in the swing of things.
During my two week hiatus I did sneak out to to the 2nd annual Velo and Vintage fashion show held at Hot Italian on May 7th.
Showcasing beautiful bicycles alongside beautiful fashion…This event was quite the crowd pleaser, and was put on by two fabulous local bloggers!!! What more could you ask for…? Oh ya, it was free! All I have to say is WOW, what a phenomonal, fun event.
Take a look for yourself:
Big shout out to Kari from Juniper James, and Lorena from Sac Cycle Chic for putting together such an amazing show!!! As you can see, I’m extremely lucky to live in such an awesome city with so many awe inspiring people.
On the subject of bicycles, May is bike month, and since it’s such a cycling-friendly area, Midtown has a lot going on. In addition to the fashion show, Hot Italian also held the Sacramento Bicycle Film Festival over the weekend, the Tour of California is coming through town, and today kicks off national Bike To Work Week. Nothing brings out your inner kid like riding a bike, so be sure to get out there and join the fun!
I hope everyone had a fun, fabulous weekend! After a week of being tremendously sick with my chronic condition, the boyfriend and I took a mini-vacation to the BIG city of SF to see Sweden’s finest, The Sounds. The show was in a hole in the wall place, and we were all packed in like sardines. Nevertheless, we ended up finding a great spot on the second floor balcony to see it all go down…and what a show it was! WOW… The Sounds are truly the only band I have seen where every single person in the crowd was singing along and dancing together in perfect unison. It was fantastic, and I can’t wait for them to come back to the States for another round, but I’m sure we will have to wait another couple years. 😦 I tried to take you guys along with me by using my iPhone to video the show, but the sound is terrible, and I know you would appreciate if I didn’t put you through that.
The concert was in Hayes Valley, which is one spot in the city we really haven’t explored much before. We always end up cruising around the Haight, Downtown, or the Marina. So it was a nice change and we had a blast exploring the neighborhood. Awesome upscale boutiques, trendy restaurants, and beautiful people. I can pretend for a day can’t I??? I did end up getting a few shots of my outfit, so here’s a look…
(Head to toe: Vintage sunglasses, Jones New York scarf, UO striped top, vintage high-waisted floral shorts, tights from Target, and Chinese Laundry black boots)
Our weekend in the city ended up being a complete blast, and I can’t wait to do it again! I’ll leave you with my favorite song by The Sounds…Maybe it will convince you to go see a show next time they play. Hope your Monday is filled with sunshine and laughter.
