Coming Soon....

There is something so sweet about this 4get me not vintage skirt that I couldn't resist. From the "warning signs,"to the alligators ferociously munching on what looks to be a pair of keds, I knew this skirt was a dream come true. My specs are peeled wide, as I await its arrival from another  Emily's shop (across the pond). Take a peek at 4 get me not vintage, your dream alligator clothes (or whatever) await you!

The Shangri Las...For Your Listening Pleasure

Busy Weekend- Bright Colors a Glow

It's my first sick day all year... bring out the sweats, and bring on the couch! Although I feel like the bottom of shoe (crappy... yeah I went there),  I could get used to  the lazying and lounging. The photos above are a snippet from a busy, lovely, weekend (we celebrated friends, candy, barbecues,darling dogs, and dyeing eggs).

Sticky Situation

Last night I had the pleasure of accompanying Alex, and most of his coworkers at Sticky (some alumni as well) watch the Portland Trail Blazers play the New Jersey Nets (complete with that one guy who was married to one of the Kardashians for like 2 days....him). I knew the night was going to be grand, when I showed up at Sticky to see Brandon (Alex's fellow Sticky-ite) with his face painted like a Blazer Bandit (aka Blazers stripes around the eyes and across the nose....can you spot him below?). Although I vowed from the start that I liked the face paint look,  I was going to  steer clear of the pastel paint pens for the evening... Well two drinks, and a pizza burger later (yes, a pizza burger later), I found myself eye to eye with the face paint (call me crazy, a liar, or even "blazer tear of joy..."  can you find the photo below?) An-y-ways, the game was good (and in the winning type of good way). To make matters even better, it was the type of win where the team scored enough points (atleast 100) to give the crowed free chalupas. I like to call this a "wi-lupa"  (by "wi-lupa" I mean I will never type or speak that hybrid word again). There were laughs and cheers (so much so that I shouted "COME ON BLAZERS" till the point my voice sounded similar to an 11 year old boy),  and when the crowd chanted "CHA-LU-PA, CHA-LU-PA" to the tune of a giant trail cat wearing a poncho and playing the  maracas, we chanted right along with them.

David Bowie...For Your Listening Pleasure

Spring Fever

Top Shots: A vintage scarf  adorned all over with the word "Holland" in beautiful cursive  (not to mention rainbow). Perfect for a sunny day head scarf, and back yard basking. Keep your specs peeled for this silk beauty to surface in the Delicate Doilies humble abode!

Take Two: Our Backyards first taste of Spring. It's a fact that as a child I used to love to pull  apart those Grape Hyacinth flowers (above) one by one (I know I know, it's terrible now, it was terrible then, but there was something so satisfying about it...judge me sure, but please don't tell my mom that's where the flowers went circa 1991).
