Enormous Green Vintage Sunglasses from My Friend's Mother and just green dress and kitchen and that green life, ok?

I mean, whattdya know about green?

Wearing a vintage 60s dress & tons of vintage jewelry. 
These glasses were my friend's mother from the 60s/70s in Argentina and she gave them to me.
I cherish them. 

Handmade crochet necklace sold at the Sly Grog
Vintage 60s dress. 

Stickers from Hello the Mushroom.

These 2 are from my closet and they're all listed here!!!!

Me in this work uniform onsie on IG tho-----I look thick in it and kind of rough, but I'm v into it.  I just straight up wear it like a jacket over an outfit for the day.  When it's cold enough.   It hasn't been that cold lately...    Come visit Asheville in the little Airbnb!

Here's a throwback on IG to when it actually was cold when I went snowboarding at Jay's peak in Vermont with my friend I've known since like, 7th grade. 

Yeah, we're wearing matchy-matchy beanies and I'm wearing jnco...

No More Excuses -- The Holidays make me want to Hustle and also stay inside because I'm scared of the cold! LOL!

I basically do the same two things for a living that I did in Tampa and I'm lucky I love what I do.
One of them is sell vintage!
The 'stockroom' needs help.
I bought some cheap wooden poles and $1.18 bike rack hooks from Lowe's to start dealing with my stock in a serious, yet super simple way.

I'm smiling, but I'm embarrassed by my work space & it sucks. 
I'm doing what I need. 
I mean, I needed it years ago tbh, but I'm finally doing it now. 
I've had 3 tables donated, thank you Sparky's!!
And mirrors and a sewing machine donated from my friend's storage! 
I'm getting a 3rd pole from Lowe's because I was ever so subtly reminded that the result should be stockroom, not dressing room. Touché.
So many jokes about poles and needing more poles in the basement, but I'll spare u lolol 

New stock, like the high-waisted 80s acid-wash jeans available here!

Me modeling this peachy-orange vintage 70s maxi dress.  Rly lovely on---has an 'I want to slow dance with your uncle at a wedding' vibe!!!!  
P.S.  I love weddings & old school slow dances---omg & open bars lol!  So that is a v positive vibe!

I also did this fun triple frame (on IG here) showing how I dressed up on a night it was actually chilly.

#1.  I wore straight up leggings and otk socks and boots!! 
I wore a major strapless bra, and fingerless gloves (from Antique Addict when I was an actual teenager lol!)
#2.  Strapless dress over the top!  My children had to help zip me up!!  Borrowed tiny hat from Ms. Empanada!!!  Big black ribbon around my neck!
#3.  Add completely ripped up black vintage velvet coat bought off a street marked in West Asheville & you are ready to party in a strapless dress on a cold night!  

Also, be a guest!!!
If any of you people (&/or pets lolol) are ever nearby, come check out Asheville--(this is the Airbnb link), but there are so many options!!
Plus, it's easier to get around and enjoy in the winter when there are so many less people :)
We have so many fun events happening continually!!!

Holiday Hustle Mind your Bizness & Get to work----that's the best idea

I'm really more worried about the holidays than usual.  I want the kids to enjoy it.
I'll be doubling down on work.

This here is a skirt from a fav dealer Maryce of Antique Addict.  She is a lady that inspired me to become a vintage seller myself.

This look below is a vintage t-shirt and thrifted velvet GAP pants----which are navy blue, not a go-to color 4 me normally, but I love them---REMEMBER TO TRY ON DIF STUFF!!!  I almost didn't attempt these pants bcuz of the navy color & I'm so glad I did!  And booties!

I met this special lady over 20 years ago at her cool kid pad in Seminole Heights thru SamIAm.  It was such an unexpected treat to have her visit----and here she is modeling a PinkCheetahVintage coat from my personal collection.  She looks amazing :)

Let's just say we went on a 'hike' and leave it at that lolol

Bathroom selfie at the coffee/tea shop to hear Maja's friend from the The Hostel in The Forest (sounds like a horror movie, but it's a spiritual retreat...  Which actually still makes perfect sense).

We went to grab coffee one evening and had to park the car to go stand in the pretty purple lights they put up in our small downtown.  It was kinda magical---glad we walked thru <3

In the store now here

Love & Light,

Historic Cotton Mills Art Studio in the River Arts District of Asheville A Cool Steampunk Circus Event

My friend Krista, talked about here & here, did the graphic design work for the Historic Cotton Mills Art Studio opening.

It was a steampunk circus theme with a big top that had a DJ & speakeasy bar.

Since there were so many separate artist rooms, I'm showcasing my fav room.
This one with many headdresses.  Winter is wearing a thrifted American Girl velvet coat with fancy ribbon bow and comparing her narwhal to the horned floral themed head pieces.


My favorite were these two:

Cozy little gypsy hang-out up there----you're welcome to join :)


So many glass pieces.

There were fire-dancers and grinder girls, as well as a balloon making clown.

Free peanuts, cotton candy, & popcorn!

More music inside----this band was so fun!

Grinder girls, sparks flyyy!

Free henna tattoos!  Coco Loco's:

Krista & Tommy!

LondonDaBridge's henna tattoo!

I'm wearing an 80s Victor Costa dress & vintage gloves I've had since HS, a borrowed tiny top hat headband, & a vintage torn velvet coat (not shown here).


Love & Light, 

Hooking up:

Thursday, November 2, 2017

I've been wearing my 70 year old cousin's husband's clothes---and the comfort level is on point. Also, don't be scared to wear a harness.

My cousin gave me some hand-me-down clothes earlier this year.  She's in her 70s and I got everything from silk tank tops to Spanx and stuff.  I wear a ton of it as I've mentioned in other posts.  She also gives me some occasional stuff from her husband.  I've been wearing his long sleeve XXL shirts and pajama pants!

Here's me in an XXL Tom James shirt and a few other bundled up lewks :)

Winter and eating crap and some stress have my skin looking horrid.
The light is filtering it out.
I'm going to dig around in my boxes of stuff for a face mask or something soon.  
And I already ripped my secondhand thrifted vintage 90s v-neck GAP sweater below---sheesh.
I'll mend it.  It's on the bottom side hem.

Old secondhand vintage leopard print hat back out again because it got cold for a day or two and I couldn't find my one beanie.  Of course. 
Old sunnies and old thrifted sweater dug up again for another year. 

I never got to sew the curtains my friend Neala gave me, but they're so long if you fold them over and tie them, they work! 
That's Foxy in the window <3

Also, this 90s Banana Republic dress is now listed.
I had 2 purple dresses and I had to decide between them.
The knit wrap dress is listed here.

(sorry for the wack screenshot--only pic I can find---weird)

And for now I'm keeping the silk dress---I wanna say Ann Taylor???

It has a wrap 'style' fit at top, but is not a true wrap dress.
Wack pics all around, I guess.  Nothing new.
Also, I like to wear the harness almost whenever I think about it!!!
Super fun accessory :)
Like belt and suspenders COMBINED.
Combo accessories; level up!

Also, this is me 'saving' some super old boots with Duck Tape lol

They're cheap anyways---faux leather---so we'll see how much longer they last lolzzz
I actually wore them with this vintage 50s dress, harness, & 'blood spattered' white thigh highs!

This is me being El Stupido

I got the inspo from this artist I love on IG who post a lot of singing and dancing ridiculousness & utter nonsense to try to have a moment of fun.

Thanks for the sweet comments on the party.  I busted my butt to clean & organize the place on a shoestring budget, while simultaneously working, and packing and sorting thru extra.  It was exhausting, but worth it.  Tried to make it cute, since she picked a party at home.  It was hard not having my mom around for sure. She is so so missed. Just hard. 

Off to bloggy land for inspo and werking all day :D
