I went up to my family’s cabin this weekend. I paired the shorts from my 1950s playsuit with an amazing 50s hand-painted blouse I got from Nicole of Fashion Forestry. The blouse is incredible. The collar and sleeves are filled with talking horses and inside jokes for whoever “Cordy” was.
I had a great time at the cabin, but it’s good to be home. I just posted a couple of vintage treasures in my Etsy shop.
and a 50s blouse:
It’s my friend Nick’s birthday on Friday so we celebrated it last night with an amazing dinner, pineapple upside-down cake, and some archery on the wii. It was also a jam-packed day of great times with friends. I met my good pals Uni and Her Ukelele and Griffin Point for breakfast, and then walked around downtown doing some Halloween shopping with Nicole before heading home for the birthday dinner. I didn’t even realize it, but the outfit I wore really mimics the kind of fun day I had, with all the colorful people in my life. Awwww! That’s stupid sweet!

I’m sure most of you who follow my blog also follow Nicole‘s, but if you don’t you should check it out. She just posted a few of our recent adventures together. I thought I’d post some of the pics from the art walk and share my outfit details.

I’ve been obsessed with collecting vintage pajamas and lounge-wear recently. Maybe spending so much time at home has made me yearn for something glamorous to wear instead of t-shirts and sweats. I’ve also built a pretty rad 1960s peignoir collection, which will be a post for another day. I’ve found that collecting vintage pajamas can be easier on the wallet. You can find them very cheap and reasonably priced, I think because they are often overlooked for actual day-wear and party dresses.
