Paisley Pout

I picked up this handmade paisley wrap about a year ago from a lady on Venice beach. It's purrfect for warm weather and I love how it moves. The Roxy dress I bought years ago at TJ Maxx I believe. These cork wedges are a hand-me-down from my mom and they are so comfortable! 
Busy week ahead of me... ten page paper and volunteering at hospitals with my little Therapy Dog, Jeepers just to name a couple tasks.
I'll be sharing photos from my Florida trip soon as well!

une année sans lumiere

I'm a bit late on this post... I actually went to this show April 14th. 
Oh man. They put on such a great show! 
The music was amazing of course and it was so much fun to be in the crowd dancing and singing along to the songs. I probably sound kind of stupid trying to explain how I felt about it. I'm not very good at that you see; describing, in words, how I feel about certain things things. Yeah, not really my forte. Anyways.
 The finale was awesome too... just when I thought they weren't going to perform Sprawl II for me to dance to (as if I wasn't dancing around enough) they break it out as their final song. I don't know why but when ever I hear that song, I feel a sudden urge to go rollerskating. I still have yet to rollerskate to that song. *Note to self: add Rollerskate to Sprawl II to bucket list.
And then... yes ladies and gentlemen there's more to this magnificent night, as if it couldn't have gotten any better right?
Well, I won the set list signed by the Arcade Fire! 
Ha I bet I looked pretty goofy with a big old smile on my face when I walked out of the venue with my hands holding this delicate piece of paper to my chest.

Flower Powerz

Me not being able to wink is like Zoolander not being able to turn left.
Today i'm wearing a wrap found at a thrift store, a shirt/dress from my grandma's closet, tights from Buffalo Exchange, and the shoes are Rocketdog found at a garage sale. Oops forgot about the purse! I love this thing. I break it out every spring and get so many complements on it. I should really learn to make them because I could be making bank selling them.
I am so excited! Arcade Fire is playing at The Joint tonight and this lady is going! Mhmm. This will be my 2nd time seeing them live. The first was at Lollapalooza in Chicago and it was epic. 
Here are some photos from Lollapalooza:

A Very Vintage Hollywood Prom

I'm so happy to have such a great boyfriend who was willing to come down from college to be my date at my senior prom... thank you Zac! xo The theme for the prom this year was Vintage Hollywood, I think Zac and I were up to dress code. His shoes are of a previous Savers trip and we found Zac's jacket and shirt at savers as well. Score! His pants, however were a bit more difficult. He ordered tan corduroy pants from a skate company called active in his usual size only to find out the night before prom that the pants were a 'super slim fit'. He looked like a little middle school, tight-panted skater boy. Needless to say, it was hilarious. So on the day of prom we went down to the mall and ended up finding a better deal and fit at The Gap on sale for about 15 bucks. Naice! 
Moving on to my ensemble... My vintage 1950s dress was purchased at a local antique mall for only 40 bucks. And I can wear it again. The Classiques Entier shoes were a little bit of a splurge but Hey, they're good quality and soo comfy with that little kitten heel. Another piece i'll be wearing again. The jewelry I wore was borrowed from my mom. Her earrings are vintage and the ring is a newer one. They are both really great pieces. 
Oh and the hair! The style is called victory rolls. I love the pin-up look. It was such a shame to wash them out of my hair though. I've had a girl named Ashley who has done my hair for the past three years from poufy pony tails to giant beehives this girl knows how to make any style work with my hair. I'm going to miss having the excuse of a high school dance for her to do my hair!

These last two photos are from one of the dress up days we have at school before a dance. This day was 'Celebrity Dress up Day'. My friend Devon was dressed as Katy Perry and I as Mary Kate Olsen. 
See any resemblance? HA
