Shop Update and More, 4/25/11.

Not sure if I mentioned it on here or not, but Foam Castles played a show this past Saturday in celebration of Metal Feathers (my favorite local band) releasing their new INCREDIBLE record, Contrast Eats the Slimey Green. You can download/listen to this record FOR FREE here! (What are you waiting for?) Anyway, here's a video from the show. (I normally play the bass, but just so happen to be playing the keyboard/jingle bells on these songs.)

It's hard to see my outfit, but I took some fashion inspiration from the lovely and hilarious Kate Sullivan Jones and wore a slip as a skirt. The blouse I'm wearing is pale pink, silk, and made by Avon in the 80s. It has shoulder pads, and we are in love. My shoes awesome, and are cut-out wedges from Forever 21.

And speaking of AWESOME, I just listed four new items in my shop tonight that I want to keep for myself. Unfortunately, the love of my life, my 1985 Volkswagen Jetta is making a scary rattling noise, and I need to take her to the mechanic... This is going to be my new catch phrase:

My Lack of Money = Your Vintage Score

90s floral grunge maxi dress
snakeskin patterned designer bathing suit
1970s strappy sandals
high-waisted equestrian jeans (the top I'm wearing in this photo is the one I wore at the Foam Castles show!)

You can buy any of those items shown above HERE.


And here's my car, her name is Peacock.

OH YEAH! And one more thing, how could I forget?! The wonderful Jessica over at Lola Vintage interviewed me, and posted our chat on her blog. Check it out HERE!
