well, i was out of town over the weekend due to family related issues… (i apologize to my ebay buyers!)as difficult as that can sometimes be, i was happy to have all of my family brought together for at least a day. i saw cousins and aunts and uncles and people who i hadn’t seen in years
and i saw my more immediate family, as per usual. here i am with both my older sister and my younger brother. they are the coolest people ever. i love them.
my sister is so pretty.
me and my brother are making silly faces.

here i am posing next to an orange tree in southern california. that’s murdok the dog. she must’ve thought i had yummy treats! oh, and it was like 100 degrees out that day. oh dear, i am glad to be back in the bay area!
ok, so i’ve been in a rut, but here’s my first attempt at getting back to my normal self. i spent hours altering and hemming and making new (vintage) clothes look like mine. so i’m feeling pretty positive in my new finds and creations. i’m a little matchy-matchy today, but so what? it’s definitely not overdone, in my opinion. so hellooooo. and more soon.

the weather is odd. it’s overcast and muggy. not exactly warm, but not cold either. strange things must be brewing in the sky. what does that mean? i don’t know.
i bought this dress forever ago and then i tried to show off the stretchy, springy fabric that makes is so lovely to wear. i did a sleepy dance to show you. yeah, that’s right. i’m sleepy. and it’s laundry day. i need to finally warsh my clothes if i wanna get snazzy and wear some nice outfits again.
anyway, i’ve done a little bit of thrifting and have some good plans for estate sales this weekend. i bought an amazing brown faux fur cropped vest. just try to think of it. you’ll like it, i think. and some pretty amazing hand-made 60’s dresses that are oh so tiny, but oh so lovely, too. lucky for you petite girls out there! it’ll all be in the shop on thursday. and i mean it this time. really, i do.

to be honest, i’ve never even seen the kentucky derby. i just became fixated with it after i learned that the mint julep is one of my favorite drinks ever, which is also the official drink of the kentucky derby. they’re delicious. especially with crushed ice. the kind that you stuff in a sack and crush with a mallet until it’s like little shaved flecks. seriously. try it.

i am also turning into a hat person. you cannot and will not ever understand my excitement at finding this sweet vintage hat. and you probably shouldn’t. i don’t think that would be healthy. but for serious. i am already on my way to becoming one sweet eccentric old bag lady. i’m into it.
so there was this crazy heat wave like a week ago and i freaked out. it was hot. i was miserable. i was confused. so i did what anyone would do, and i bought a shit ton of dresses. now it’s not so hot, but i still wanna wear my cool new stuffs. i think i’m making that sad face because i’m a tad too cold. silly me.

at a certain point this spring, i thought i had seen too many florals and i decided i would clean my palette and avoid them. but i was wrong. who can resist a floral pattern, really?
i’m sure you all know about my chloe obsession. this outfit was heavily inspired by a certain see by chloe line… except it’s like a teeny tiny fraction of the price.

i’m pretty sure i’ll be taking photos of new ebay stuffs tomorrow, which is a very good idea because i’ve been spening like mad and i am but a poor college student, for reals!!! but i have to get up and get moving and do washing and ironing and fixing-up and getting ready first. ok, i’m almost up.
in other news, i am suddenly hankering for another hair cut. why is my favoritest stylist in the world so expensive? 70 dollars for a cut and that does not include tip! i will patiently wait and try to make a few bucks on ebay before i get crazy. anyways, i’ve got rent to think of. and i desperately need new glasses. oh expensive life!

ok, so i’ve recently become obsessed with this whole giant bow/hat thing a la luella this spring. i got a copy of the latest lula mag the other day and i threw myself on the floor in a fit of joy and inspiration because they featured a lot of what i’m in love with these days. like charles anastase and isabel marant and luella! and glasses! oh glasses, how i want you! i wish i was not so broke.

additionally, i am now really into mint juleps. kentucky derby ready, dude. can you just order one up at any old bar? and if you do, will it be as good as the ones i’ve been making today??? so many hard-hitting questions….
