Thanks to Little Lost Love (side blog to Vegan and Vintage) AND Anna of Vintage Veggie for the Blog Lovin award!! Not only is the award super cute-lovin that pink!-but it's really sweet of you two, thank you thank you thank you!
outfit 100% vintage. headband:F21
((outfit worn to Star Bar where Ash&I got on stage and boogied down with one of the bands!! such a fun night!!))
and while I'm catching up, I was tagged by Bug of In Bug's Drawers with the "Six Little Things that Make Me Happy" here goes:
1: Wheat Beer
2. Passion Pit
4. Thrift scores
5. Girl outings
if you can't tell, a couple of the things that make me happy are ((nouns)) that were incorporated in this past weekend's Bachelorette party in Nashville. Friday I managed to get there by 10pm their time and 11 mine, the drive was through beautiful mountains with a tropical-like sunset so it was pleasant despite being a.l.o.n.e. I had also made a bangin mixed tape for the ride, which was the only music until Chat. and Nash. so I listened to that on r.e.p.e.a.t. When I arrived the ladies had FOOD, gift bags, cold beer, and s.o. much more! it was awesome!! We partied inside the two hotel rooms we had combined via connecting door-easy way to make a suite-and had a blast. ((Saturday)) The beer fest RULED. We ended up getting extremely hammered, the sun partially to blame +++ the heady beer which was also a culprit. afterwards we crashed for several hours ((3 too many!!)) until getting up, minus the bride-to-be who had unintentionally got too sick, and found out about a hip dance party. We took a cab out at freakin 1:30am!! and was not even prepared for the party that was ahead of us. there was fun remixes, original shit, and dub mixes.AND LAZERS!!! way cool. pictures to come! I'm headed via bike to hang with Adrienne and catch up with her weekend. Thanks so much kind ladies!!!
PS///just noticed the date and on the 25th my blog turned 2 years old!!

Tonight We are having a dinner party in the hotel, lingerie shower, and other festivities and tomorrow going to the Music City Micro Brewers fest, hanging around pool, exploring, and God knows what else . . .

as many have noticed I'm a pretty relaxed kind of gal. on one hand I love vintage dresses, tights and the frilliest things around but on the other I am pretty laid back. My True Religion skinnies have made numerous appearances lately and simply pairing them with a couple vintage pieces seem to do the trick. especially if you skip out on shaving for a couple days and don't wish to let the entire world know. . .but let's keep that between us.
bf's vintage Mellow Yellow tee, True Religion jeans, Kenzie sandals, Michael Kors purse, gold plated Ginkgo leaf from Tannehill Rock and Mineral Show.
took this photo out one night behind the UO on Ponce. thought it was very neat.
the pink flowers here, the Mirabilis//Four O'clock Flower//Marvel of Peru, open up mid afternoon and look real pretty. in the morning when I leave for work they are closed up real tight waiting for their time to shine. too cool.
snapped at SoRare in Decatur. purchase an adorable vintage bracelet that will surely pop up soon.
last week I sported my suspenders to Wasabi for a drink with friends, little did I know I would never wear these shoes again after sneaky Grits ate the side off. so sad. now on the search for perfectly broken-in vintage sandals as rockin as these.
a cozy nook at the adorable retro shop down the street, still thinking of what the name was, something long. . .
UO shirt, Vintage Levis suspenders, T.R. jeans, vintage shoes and bag.
this crazy fishface is seen on a couple things around my hood, i really dig it.
more girly things to come, of course I'm backed up on posts, but at least life hasn't gotten dull enough to have nothing to say or share. . right. .work is keeping me super busy as I'm learning the other side of the print shop-the customers. man there really are some clueless people out there, I suppose the whole signage phenomenon is rather new but still. ok my poor fingers are aching from using a mouse and keyboard . .a.l.l. d.a.y. l.o.n.g. . so I'm off this piece.

my first day of work went great!!! arrived early and was able to come home for lunch, feed && play with the animals and sit down for a minute or two. .the staff is really fun and fairly new (three people's first day on the job, shop has been real busy and needs more hands. . .) so we are learning together with the alums. 8am came early but by after some rocket fuel, aka, the shop's coffee, I was wide-eyed and bushy tailed-ready to GO!
hehe, well anyways, I wore the below outfit out to dinner at Six Feet Under-yummy seafood joint with a great view-back when my brother came to town for a couple nights. I bought the dress off Ebay (and wore it HERE too) a couple years ago and am so thankful it still fits, the band around the waist can be restricting, so I ended up changing when we went out to the bar but still love sporting the cacti appliqués around!
dress//handmade, shoes && cuff//vintage, purse//vintage Liz Claiborne
spotted this flower out back and fell in love! it's still kickin it today (picture taken 4 or so days ago) and closes up certain parts of the day-too cute!
i looovve mushrooms as well as fungus, moss, and really all wildlife in general and thought these bright little guys were awesome!
one is the loneliest number. . .
Hope everyone's Monday was grand!! Aside from a great day at the job the other parts of the day were rather,
I'm just glad to have human interaction with fun people my age!

As promised a couple posts ago, I wanted to share my favorite pics from the shows I've been to lately. but first I need to announce something really awesome. .
/////I GOT A JOB!!!//////
starting Monday I will be working at FASTSIGNS downtown as a customer service associate helping peeps choose the materials, size, color, etc. . of their project. The hours are 8-5 and it's only minutes down the road, literally, less than a mile!! Don't have to dress up either, we wear jeans, tennies, and a polo that is provided-which means I can dedicate all my clothes $$$ to fun gear! Way stoked and wanted to share since I've bitched constantly about the job hunt, which is O.V.E.R.
So now that that's done, let's get on with the photos////
Dubconscious via Dubocracy
my little bro's fireworks were quite the show!!
@@ The Earl's 10th Anniversary show w/The Black Lips
Urban Renewal dress, Michael Kors purse, Kenzie shoes.

the wheel in the sky keeps on burnin'!
The Black Lips///
petal away///isn't this the neatest TAG ever?
Shrimp and salmon are being prepared for grillage since we ran our weekly errands (ie. groceries, pet shop. .etc. .) and picked up some goodies including my favorite summer time brew-Abita Strawberry. mMMmmM. Last night went to the StarBar with Ashliegh so probably going to take tonight eazy--Hope you ladies are having a swell Friday!!
