The Hunt

IMG_0536I saw this pretty cool shirtdress at House of Vintage. It had a full skirt and super cute heart pattern but there were just way too many holes in it. Ah well, on to the next.

IMG_0714My heart went pitter patter at the sight of this one, but alas, the buttons served no purpose and it looked really weird on. Stains, too. Nope!

IMG_0770I wanted this dress BAD (the collar? the fabric? HI.) but, and this is a big but, it kind of hurt to breathe in it.

IMG_0814Cuuute. I like breathing, though.

IMG_0771Louder than I usually go for, but appealing nonetheless. Also, it might be a jacket.

IMG_0781I dropped by Hollywood Babylon and these ladies caught my eye. As soon as I buttoned up the blue dress I thought, “WE HAVE A WINNER.”

SAM_1226I found two pairs of floral tights at Anthro on sale with an additional 25% off. HELL YES. Andy told me that these made me look like a burn victim. Whatever.

Plaiditudes

SAM_1215Wishing you all a very Merry, Plaid Christmas!!!

I made a collage of all of our plaid goodness thus far. I really enjoy this tradition, and I look forward to seeing how many different plaids I can find and throw together (it really bothers me that Andy wore the same plaid shirt two years in a row ARGH). The clash-ier the better! I’ve become obsessed with finding and buying plaid clothing for the boys. Because you know what they say: The dream of the 90s is alive in Portland.

Holy Coats: For the love of Plaid

 

SAM_1217I scored this awesome amazeballs coat at Portland Flea for $17! I figure it’s exactly the kind of coat I need as my hair is getting bigger and bigger every day. Big hair calls for big coat. For real though, I’ve been looking for a plaid coat with a big fur collar for AGES. YES!

Three Things

1. I can’t get over this. Debra Rapaport is AMAZEBALLS, mkay? Her hats are splendid. Simply splendid I say!!

2. Autre Ne Veut

Have I already posted this song? If so, sorry I’m not sorry. LISTEN AGAIN. It’s the weirdest thing, the singer’s voice kind of annoys me and I don’t think he’s very good live, but my shoulders start popping every time I listen to this album. I can’t get enough. I just called you up to get the play by play by play by play…

3. Amber Riley and Derek Hough on DWTS.

I HATE reality shows/celebrity competitions/whatever but I get SO MUCH JOY from watching these two dance. I tried watching two of Corbin Bleu’s performances and NOPE. There is no there there. I also saw some bits of them “behind the scenes” or whatever and I repeat: I HATE REALITY SHOWS ZOMG. Anyway, what is up with the uber touchy feelies going on with him and his choreographer? The constant draping on each other and linking fingers when they’re holding hands…wait they’re holding hands? Okay, ya’ll. Simmer down. Anyway. I dare not try to watch anyone else’s cuz barf. Back to Amber and Derek: she can move like whoa and he is an amazing choreographer. Together they taste great! Their freestyle performance? WUUUUUUUUT. Their Charleston performance (both of them, actually)?! WUUUUUT. THEIR PASO DOBLE PERFORMANCE?! WUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT.

Say. What.

Damn.
