old stuff new stuff

Fun times at the Golden State Goods opening this weekend!
There was lots of old stuff and of course, I partook in purchasing
some of it! yay me. More on that later. 
There was racks of fun vintage..
 creepy cats + ceramics? yes please. 
Notice my favorite, hidden here in the case. I repeatedly begged
to buy them, but Amy would NOT allow it. 
trunks of bags and belts. 
and these.. specially made. So amazing. 
I settled for that big red guys little brother. 
Still desiring him. Some day. 
removable feathers. 
backless suede dress!
and this guy. 
seriously cute. You must check it out if you are in 
Long Beach!
And, some shots of Ava from the pumpkin patch. 
oh! and good news.
 Despite my really bad blogging 
commitment, we are going to start shooting some of our inspiration
pieces for swim, fall and holiday and start blogging them 
over on Split girl/FB. I, of course will be stealing some of the 
shots and putting them here. 
In the meantime, I will continue to do what I do best at work..
dress myself up and take photo booth pictures. 
have a good week everybody!

Sigh followed by sigh.  It's been another banner week. 
Lately, our lives have been plagued by bad news. It is 
seriously and amazingly too much!!
But, it must get better from here. 
Really, the only way to handle this situation is to 
get the winners out of the closet and throw them on. 
Yesterday, said winner was the old batwing romper. 
Don't be jealous. 
 It even has bling!
look closely. 
The second winner, which is currently hindering my 
ability to breathe, is these. 
and my new furry ankle booties. 
these really do make you feel like celebrating. 
 even Ava knows what's up (and how to pose). 
she is styling out one of Mommy's sassy
eighties dresses. 
 and when outfits fail, there are always good vibes
happening on the weekend...
Have a good one!

totally unrelated

to the random quinceanera reference..
I am semi-obsessed with the old Mexican poncho and 
let's be honest that plain old ratty scratchy Mexican blanket. 
You know the things I am talking about...
Yes yes yes!
And! I almost fell out of my chair looking at these!!
not sure where Vdingy gets ahold of this stuff. But it is so 
incredibly amazing!
Happy Friday!!

notes from my desk

Sorry internet lovers.. but, life has been calling and the old blog is officially on the back burner.
Ava P has started school and about 5 hours of each day is devoted to preventing potty accidents. 
Luckily, Darth Vader  is apparently the patron saint of poopies, because Ava would 
do anything for him. 
and, of course I am cat keeper for 2 more days. I think I'm gonna miss em!
 I do promise to come back in full effect someday. I have been looking at the
stay at home mom blogs and this picture is looking better everyday. 
In the meantime, I am here, designing Holiday and I am ready to share. 
I love cropped trenches and I love dropped batwing armholes... and so, I love this. 
 Sending out some swim goodie packs!! You know who you are!
But, really, they are for the models and some WINNERS. So, don't get angry. You'll get yours(eventually).
 Some winter vintage inspiration...
 and lacey laces!
 and how scrumptious is this maxi. It is as soft as butter, yet fall heavy. yummm.
(I am not really wearing it - just tricking your eyeballs). 

  Hope life is beautiful! I have given a few permissions for a few more contests. So, let's hope those bad boys happen soon.
