American Vintage

 necklace and top: crimson and clover, skirt: American Vintage
I'm back from my trip and especially in retrospect it was quite an epic adventure. Missed my darling family though. I didn't get a chance to do outfit posts there as I had food poisoning for half the trip. The other half was pretty awesome though including Crystal's birthday party, vice magazine's world cup party, Santa Monica's gorgeous beach, and finding the American Vintage Shop. We also had a celebrity sighting at Swingers Restaurant, Pete from Mad Men (which is where I got aforementioned food poisoning!) This skirt was one of the finds in the dollar bin of American Vintage in Los Feliz. I wished some of the 60's dresses there fit me, they were also amazing.
 
I can't believe I was worried that this hat wouldn't match my clothing. It has been matching a plethora of outfits lately much to my delight.

  1. That hat is awesome. That's rubbish about the food poisoning though, poor you! However $1 skirts and sightings of mad men actors sound like they might have made up for it.

  9. I can't say I've ever been a fan of Pete Campbell, but I love Mad Men so much, that I think it's really cool that you saw him! Too bad about the food poisoning though...

    This skirt is great, I love the pattern on it!

  14. I love these shots of you! So sorry you had food poisoning, I've only had it once and know it is not pretty. I have a mustard bag that seems to go with everything too! I meant to tell you, I loved that post on shopping your own close, the dress is spectacular and is perfect on you. Oh and I plan to show my vintage Gunne Sax dress soon, you are right, I've never posted it!

  24. The hat is KILLER. You look so darling.

    I just read through many of your recent blogs, and it made me so sad that we weren't able to hang out! Bea is a freakin' doll and I think she and Mycie would have a blast playing dress up out of M's closet.

    So sorry about your friend. It's so hard when folks, young folks, die. Life/death knows/doesn't know. I sure don't know.
