Fitted for Five…

Okay, EEEEEEEP!!! I am having an OMG moment. I just got back from the local vintage shoppe Bows and Arrows, they were having a moving sale…Everything was $1. Honest to blog, one buckaroonie. When does that ever happen?!? pretty much never. I am so excited and needless to say I left with about half of the store. There were no fitting rooms, so I was forced to pick and choose what I thought might fit me…and miraculously, everything did!!!

I am jumping up and down right now with pure joy! I was so excited in fact, I came right home and put together an outfit to show you all. Here is my five dollar fit of the day:

Everything down to the Sunglasses and Wedges came from the sale today!

please excuse the wrinkled skirt, I was too happy to care.

I’m beaming with happiness.

(fitted: blue cardigan, vintage white cami, pink wrap skirt, and wedges…All from Bows and Arrows.)

What do you guys think? Pretty sweet right!?! You will sure see a ton of outfit posts in the near future! Not only did I score majorly today, but tonight the boyfriend and I are going to see Bill Cunningham New York at the Crest Theatre. It should be amazing and I am definitely looking forward to it! For those of you who don’t know who Bill Cunningham is, watch the you tube video below.

Girl Crush…

It’s true I have a crush. I’ve had one for quite some time, and this one has remained proud and true…my serious obsession with the one and only Zooey Deschanel. But who doesn’t have a crush on that girl? Gahhhhhh…She is just so cute, and so insanely stylish, and not to mention has the sweetest voice, and bluest eyes on the planet. Bageezesus…I just love her. So to show the world my love for Zooey I’ve comprised several photos for you to gawk at in amazement…Enjoy.

…Seriously the cutest girl ever. If you would like to swoon a little longer, watch the you tube video below.

So, who is your girl crush? I know you all have one…might as well just lay it out on the table now.

Hats off To Ya…

Yay, today was a very productive day! I had a morning workout dance party, lunch with my beau, I planted some seedlings in the backyard, worked on a photography project, and finished my DIY hat collection. Pheeeewwwy… I’m pooped from my busy day!

I’m not sure if any of you are aware, but I have a serious obsession for hats. Ever since I can remember I have loved them…It’s just my thing. You know what I’m talking about, we all have that one “thing” we love. Whether it be shoes, bags, etc,etc… Well, hats are definitely my thing…and will probably always be. Case in point, I have acquired quite a collection, and I’ve been trying to find a way to show them off. I know I know, believe me I wear them… All of them. But they are just so beautiful not to showcase.

Cruising through blogs I found a very simple and fun DIY project. Listed below is what you will need…it’s an extremely long list so get your pen and paper ready.

Strong double-sided tape.

Laundry Clips. I used clips from an Ikea photo holder.

Did I trick you? I tend to do that. (Ha…I actually never do that.)

Tape the backside of the clip and place on the wall. Clip your hats and Viola…Magic that looks something like this:

(This is just a 1/4 of them, I’m currently working on the other half of my wall now.)

(Hooray for Hats!)

(The hat with the feathers was my Mom’s, which makes it all the more special)

(Niko likes to pretend he’s helping…)

So what’s your “one thing” ? And do you like to showcase it in a creative way? Hopefully I’ve inspired you to partake in a DIY project, because obviously some of them are quite simple, and can be really quite fun! Any plans for the weekend? I have a list of things I would like to do. I think a good starting point is a night of dancing with the girls! I got my dancing shoes on, let’s go!

Springtime…

It’s Springtime and I have a terrible cold. Grrrrrrr…I hate colds, they are wretched aren’t they? You just have to lay around feeling terrible, and you can’t even rest because you are unable to breathe or swallow. Alright, alright I’ll stop complaining now.

However, since I’ve been sick, I’ve had some extra time to check out the Springtime looks from Threadsence’s new Spring LookBook and thought I’d share them….mmmmm, so devine.


So wonderfully dreamy don’t you think? Perfect eye candy for someone who is sick at home. If you have yet to check out Threadsence new Spring line, do so here. I love their stuff! Well I suppose I’ll go back to being grumpy and sick now…

Feelin’ Dotty…

Oh, Weekends… how I love thee. This past week came and went with a blink of an eye, but I have to say, that’s okay with me! My Friday was pretty phenomenal, the local vintage shop Bows and Arrows is having a moving sale and everything is $5 or less. Crazy right!?! If you have yet to check it out, you better get your booty movin’ and get on over there! I took full advantage of the sale…I’m definitely a sucker for a good sale, and ended up getting a ton of stuff. Basically I have a whole new spring wardrobe for about 25 bones. I know, I am excited too! I went home with 6 dresses and 3 skirts, and I can’t wait to start showing you all of my fab finds.

I was in quite a good mood today, and decided to show it off with my current favorite print, polka dots. I have acquired quite a few, and now I am officially on a hold from purchasing another one. I just love them though! Here is what I wore:

( I love this photo, especially because my cat Neela always finds a way to sneak into the photo. She likes her picture taken too!)

(Being my silly little self)

(This dress is actually Navy blue, but you would never know because the photos make it look black)

(And I do a little turn on the catwalk)

(Fitted with- Straw hat and vintage polka dot dress from Freestyle, Crimson and Clover vintage belt, Tights from Target, and Mary Jane pumps from my very favorite shop, The Nest)

 I think it’s time for a weekend adventure…What do you say? Let’s find one.

Let’s Go Surfing.

For your listening pleasure, I found this amazing song…I figured it’s Friday, its springtime, and it’s beautiful out. Why not entice you with thoughts of Summer…

This song is by the Drums called Let’s Go Surfing. Enjoy!

Doesn’t it make you dream of summer, and surfing, and lounging at the beach….mmmmmm…Okay, I suppose it’s time to go back to reality.

3 Things I Love Thursday…

So I tried to do a 10 things I love Tuesday, but it takes me about 3 hours to write it up, and as much as I love writing about the things I love, I think I’ll stick with three on Thursdays:

1. Vintage Typewriters-

Aren’t they cool? After I saw one used as a guest book for a wedding, I have been hopelessly smitten with the idea of finding one of my own. I think it would be fun to bring out at a party, or to play around with at home. Luckily I found an awesome retro styled one at the Antique Faire on Sunday for $10…I can see a lot of projects happening in the future!

2. Pastels- Such great colors for spring! Especially since Easter is around the corner. I love the subdued lightness, so airy and fresh. Try it, I’m sure you will feel the same.

Easy as ABC

3. Skinny ties- I am swooning over the urban skinny tie look for guys…It is so hot. I just bought a few for my boyfriend and he looks so good in them.  Guys take note, skinny ties is where it’s at… and you’re guaranteed to look like a million bucks.

I think it also might be fun for us fashionistas to try and pull off the skinny tie look, playing on masculine and feminine could be really fun!

street style

I’m sure you will see more of these in the future, because the 10 things is just a little too ambitious for me. I just realized that tomorrow is Friday… Yippee! Wait, where did the week go? Well, I suppose it doesn’t matter. I’m just happy it’s almost the weekend, and I’m sure you are too. Check ya on the flip side…

xoxo
