Où est la bibliothèque?

Go on a fabulous vacation this summer, or just talk like you did with vintage language lessons. I love these old vinyl records with language lessons. Now I can say "where is the library" in 4 different ways.

Found It! Part 3

Today's look comes from J Crew. A store I have loved since high school and have even saved some of the old catalogs because I often try and recreate the looks. They are like a seasonal paperback look books for me. Nobody makes better sweaters for sure. Many of the looks can be recreated from the vintage pages because essentially the look of J Crew is classic preppy. Here is the look I have chosen for today: http://www.jcrew.com/ www.thepuddingstorevint.etsy.com

Found it on Etsy!

I have set a new challenge for myself to find a new outfit from our favorite shops and recreate the look using the vintage pages. It's kinda like "Splurge or Steal" from Good Morning America. My first look is from Urban Outfitters.http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/www.whatsheknows.etsy.com

Inspired

We all knew that Keith Richards was the inspiration for Johnny Depp's fabulous performance of Captain Jack Sparrow but who knew that his wife was such an inspiration for such a chic bohemian style. See an example here: She's gorgeous and gets even better with age and she has inspired me do a Patti Hansen/Rock Royalty themed post today. Here is what I found on the vintage pages that Patti might just might have in her closet. Planet Claire Vintage: www.planetclairevintage.etsy.com

Baby, It's Cold Outside

Geez it's hot! I live in a country with no air conditioning so it's hot inside too. So to cool off, let's all think like its a blizzard outside, kinda like when you think of a waterfall when you need to pee. Today I'm only thinking of "snowflakes that fall on your nose and eyelashes, brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few...... "
Sorry got side tracked there, anyways, back to the blizzard:GoodEye: http://www.goodeye.etsy.com/galleriadesigns: http://www.galleriadesigns.etsy.com/Heresyourladypirate: http://www.heresyourladypirate.etsy.com/ladyhawthorne: http://www.ladyhawthorne.etsy.com/abandc: www.abandc.etsy.com
Brrrrrr, I'm feeling so chilly, [sigh, I wish].

Do You Take Etsy to Have and to Hold From This Day Further in Sickness and in Health until Death Do You Part???

I DO!
The handmade and vintage wedding movement is growing like crazy, and I love it. And why not?!, with dresses and fun accessories like these it makes it so much fun. And anyways, just having a wedding is an old tradition in itself.
So, would you wear a vintage wedding dress?isidoraverde: http://www.isidoraverde.etsy.com/IWObyCourtneyJane: http://www.iwobycourtneyjane.etsy.com/VintageFosterCare: http://www.vintagefostercare.etsy.com/santokivintage: http://www.santokivintage.etsy.com/qualityvintage: http://www.qualityvintage.etsy.com/treasuresinanattic: www.treasuresinanattic.etsy.com

Get Your Weave On

Straw, wicker, basket, or grass, these organic purses are a more "natural" way to style the summer.

I Was Tagged

I was tagged by Vilate's Nifty Nook:
And I am supposed to name 10 random things about me.

1. I have volunteered (worked) for the Sundance Film Festival for 13 years.

2. I love and drink iced coffee with honey even in the winter.

3. I try never to wear make up or lotion that contain petroleum or mineral oil.

4. My sister taught me how to color my hair and touch up my own roots therefore saving me thousands of dollars over the years and I am forever grateful for it.

5. I live out of the country and the store I miss the most from home is Target.

6. I am learning to speak Italian....slowly.
7. I love, no LOVE sweaters, I wear and buy them all year long.

8. My celebrity look alike is Sophie Dahl, and I love her.

9. I love John Legend's music and I met him once without a shirt on, him, not me.

10. I spend more time thrift/vintage/antique/garage sale shopping than sleeping.

2 Bonus random things:

11. My guilty pleasure, TV speaking, is Big Brother UK. Which, during the summer, if I could only watch one program I would I would watch BB and be perfectly happy. (picture at the top)
12. My dog is obsessed with kissing everyone she comes in contact with. She's a lover, not a fighter.
Now I am tagging the following blogs to do the same:

Be Truly Outrageous


I distinctly remember asking my parents if I could paint a picture of Jem and the Holograms on my bedroom wall because I wanted to be truly outrageous! Now as an adult, I have the tights and earrings (my boyfriend doesn't know this) but I'm searching for the rest of the look.... (don't tell him, he might think I need to be truly medicated).
