So Much Good Beer & Food

One of our favorite little brewery/bar to hang is Burial.  It is a small, but awesome little family owned spot.  On Sundays they have delicious food at noon and then live music.

This was the menu today and it was amazing.  They have a little tiny outdoor kitchen set up on the patio where they cook right in front of you.  I should of taken pics of the food, but I didn't, I just ate it.  The red velvet waffles were so yum!  I had the Donut Skillet Stout (my usual) and they actually put a donut hole from Vortex Donuts on a little stick in your beer and it pairs so well.  A portion of the money they make from the Sunday brunches go to a local food charity.  The music was great, as well.

There was a poet:

The music was fantastic!  My friend snapped a shot of our kids while we were hanging outside.  They have a big outdoor area and there are always tons of families and kids.  There is really every age group from 20-70.  Asheville has a super inclusive vibe.

I wore a 60s shirt with a pointed collar and back zipper.  I didn't like the full length pics even though I did really like my outfit.   I wore flared jeans with it.

Pic of the bling!

Repeat Offender

I wore the same dress twice this week.  Once to The Big Crafty on Sunday and then again Thursday night to my husband's office dinner at a Japanese Steakhouse.

Forcing my children to take pictures of me in an effort to get out of the mirror selfie situation.  Needless to say, they weren't that interested in the project.  Ignore Foxy's bed beside.  He likes to rip up stuffed animals in there for fun.  

The dress is one I bought from a fellow vintage dealer that I talked about in an earlier post here.  It is one of my all time favorites <3

Almost all 2nd hand stuff here, except my trusty Ren Faire tote talked about here that was bought from a vendor and two necklace that were gifts.

I'm also trying to stick to the 1 in 1 out rule because otherwise I would just keep EVERYTHING.

I was thisssss close to listing this Catherine Ogust blouse.  Like, literally typing the listing, and then stopped and ran and put it in my closet to keep.  So, I knew I had to pick something to go.

I've come across several Catherine Ogust dresses and have a weird obsession with them, but I'd never seen a shirt.

I love it.  Probably won't wear it until spring, but still keeping.

This is what's going in it's place: 

A vintage polyester button up with leaves and butterfly print.  It's listed here.
I love polyester button ups, but I'm PICKY about prints.  I hate giving up stuff I like!!!!

Hooking up to Patti's Visible Monday and can't wait to see what everyone's been up to and wearing.

Wat up?

Time to post!!!
I'm keeping it more to outfits lately because I was finding it overwhelming trying to talk and blog about all the stuff I do.

Here I am wearing a hand me down turtleneck from my dad's cousin, talked about getting hand me down from her before here, my vintage black leather jacket (has been in quite a few posts!), and a sweet vintage wrap skirt my mom just gave me!!!!!!!  It was a gift from my Grandma (my dad's mom) to her after a trip to Egypt & Israel.  My mom has probably had it almost 30 years.  She doesn't actually keep much, probably only kept it because it was from my Grandma.  I love it :)

Accessories.  And my unmade bed.

We also got to pop out and join some friends that were visiting from Florida.  I have no pictures of it, but it was rather rowdy.   I am wearing some vintage 70s overalls I got from Etsy.  A thrifted modern sweater that is too tight, but works with the overalls, and some thrifted KangaROOS green tennis shoes.   Shoes are lucky scores for me.  I have always had trouble scoring shoes.

Off to check what everyone's been up to!!
Love & Light,

Why u so obsessed wit me?

This is what all my Brit friends must ask!!

Because I really do love England & Wales.

Here is my recently thrifted vintage Kappa Wales jacket.

Used to love Kappa, Adidas, and all those dope soccer styles in the 90s.  One of my best friends, and old roomie, is half British, and he was a soccer player and I used to swipe all his track suits to wear. 
So excited to find this and a keeper for sure. 

And this English soccer tee the same day.  You think they were originally from the same person?

Also, did everyone know about this 'Beauty Face' thing on the Android phone camera???
I am using it here.  Basically, it smoothes out all the blemishes and wrinkles for that Barbie look.  Not gonna lie.  I kind of dig it.  

We went out to this little vintage booth/antique store opening---I cannot remember the name rn.  I met one of the gorgeous vintage dealers (wish I'd snapped her pic!) and she was super sweet.  There were a lot of cute things I really liked, but they were too small for me. 

I wore an old thrifted 90s velvet top and some thrifted trippy palazzos. Oh yeah, and the amazing necklace I picked up in Dahlonega, GA.  I was there for my cousin's wedding and as we were passing through town on the way to the reception we saw a antique store. We popped in, met the most awesome vintage seller/owner, originally from Miami, and shopped the shit out of her store.

I added rings and my new (to me) leopard print jacket shown here.

I also wanted to discuss this thrifted leopard print hat.  I think it's great and it gets cold here and I'm thinking I might actually get to wear it (I've had it stashed for a while).  I'm just wondering how much use I'll get out of it because I will NEVER wear it with my leopard print jacket.  I don't care about everyone else, but I get weird feelings with too much matching print.

This is a dress from Antique Addict. One of my fav vintage stores that I've been frequenting since high school.   The owner Maryce is so nice and was a huge inspo for me.  I did a post with this dress as a brunette in 2012 here.   I loveeeee the color green and I'm always a sucker for a green dress.

So that is a little bit of my current fashion.  My mom popped into town this weekend on her way to/from a wedding in Highland.  So, that was nice!

I'll be checking blogs soon and def hooking up with Patti for Visible Monday.

Love & Light,

Never Enough Old Leopard Jackets

I've found yet another vintage leopard print coat.  This one really is perfect.  Perfect size, length, weight...

I've decided to sell the leopard blazer in the first pic in this old post and I actually can't find the leopard jacket in the second pic in the post...  So, even tho it seems I am constantly acquiring leopard print jackets, I will soon enough be back down to one.

Anyhow, just popping in to show off my new favourite jacket and hooking up to Patti's Visible Monday!

Love & Light,
<3 <3 <3

P.S.  Also, having some issues with people actually glorifying and being proud of being self-confessed greedy bastards.  Who thinks it's good to have an ungenerous soul?  Who related to Ebenezer Scrooge or wants to be Mr. Burns???  Who did you admire as a kid?  What qualities do heroes have?  We have some issues here in America over what people we admire, that's for sure :(
