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.

Love & Light,

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,
<3 <3 <3

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 :(

We've been pretty lucky and have gotten to see a LOT of very good friends in Asheville lately.  Also, our crew is fairly international.  This is the X-man with his best friend since junior high (originally from Mexico) and his gorgeous wife from Lithuania-----and their brand new baby that you can't see!  They popped into Asheville and it was amazing to see their faces.  We are at Wicked Weed Brewing.  They are supposedly one of the top US microbreweries.  Beers are good and so is the cheese plate and the fish n' chips!

That very same evening we had another set of high school friends pop into town to stay with us.  Our really good friend Jessica and her husband from India and their little 2 year old.
They joined us at dinner above, but we headed out hiking with them the next day.
Here they are at Dupont State Park where we were checking out some good waterfalls:

Here are some waterfalls!

We always chill bit and have a snack.
The one below is Hooker Falls and you can actually stand behind the water and/or take a canoe right up to the actual falls.  I want to do this!!!!!!!!

The very next week my BFF came to visit!!!!!!!!

We were also able to pop out a few times to places for drinks.  One time I wore this thrifted black velvet and beaded side zipper 40s dress.  I am having a serious moment with black lately.  Joining Ephemera's Party dress link-up because this dress makes me feel like I'm going to a party!

Sorry.  Until I can afford a new camera it's crappy selfies.  I really love the dress.
The X-man looking pretty fly!!! vvv

We are at a place called The Crow and Quill and it is awesome.

They serve absinthe and make real drinks.  The bartenders have to actually know their shiz.  

We also popped over to The Double Crown, but my pics didn't come out!  Click the link if you want to see the place.  It is really cool :)

We went hiking with the BFF and boyfriend and they stayed for about 4 days.  Her man made a cool video of our hike, but I can't figure out how to share it here :(  At some point I will have to share pics of it.  And her.  because she's VIP in my life :D

We also hung out at the Asheville Pride Festival.  Here are the girls riding a turkey, which for some reason I KEPT calling a vulture!  

Had a great time with everyone!!!!

Last, but not least, I wanted to share my epic shower curtain I ordered from Ilaria Novelli's Society 6 store.  I know most of you know her and are friend's, but it doesn't hurt to put it out there.  I am in LOVE with my curtain.  She did a double image of 'Alice' for me.  This print is no longer available, but she has more.  It has transformed my tiny shitty bathroom. SUPPORT ARTISTS YO!

I can't even get the whole curtain in because I am literally backed into the farthest corner of the door.  

Love & Light, 
<3 <3 <3 

P.S. Did I mention I love my shower curtain or nah?
