Ay Caramba

I had become a bit obsessed with the weirdest thing a few months ago. I got it into my head that I NEEDED to find a vintage Simpsons sweatshirt. Don’t ask me why, I can’t even remember why. And the problem was that it was hard to find. Mostly because I’m neurotic about buying things online you cannot try on (and return easily.) Half the time, the sweatshirts were too big – mostly because they were for men. Or they were really expensive – because they were rare and funny. Sometimes they were just too worn or weird (aka dingy) looking – not what I was going for…I ended up jumping for something I thought was cute. It did end up a tad bit too small for me (okay, really small.) It fits more like a top than a sweater, but with our mild San Francisco summers, it works.

It’s hard to read what Bart is saying, but it’s the famous “Jingle bells, Batman smells…” line! I’m actually shocked to realize I haven’t shown this skirt more here on the blog – I practically lived in it last year!

MoMa

So a lot of my outings lately have been to museums. Sorry (not sorry.) I’m now the proud member of three different museums in San Francisco and cannot urge you enough to do something similar near you! In the long run it becomes affordable if you visit often (like I do) and you typically always have a bonus ticket to invite a friend – and what good friends wouldn’t take you up on an offer to visit world class museums for free?!

So when I got the chance to visit the SF MOMA for the first time, I jumped at the opportunity to get a membership. Solely for the fact that it’s also too large to enjoy in one whole day. So now I get to come back as much as I want for a whole year! I feel lucky.

I’ve been trying to figure out where one can wear a bright yellow, wool, mini skirt…and if a museum isn’t perfect, I don’t know where else you’d wear the damn thing?! I still can’t believe I found it at the thrift store! It’s by Sonia Rykiel, who seems to have just passed away (RIP)

I’m not sure how long ago it took me to realize this, it must have been after what felt like the 100th BIG BOX STORE and SMALL BRAND collaboration. I quickly realized I could find the real deal much cheaper most of the time. I’m fairly certain it was right after the Missoni x Target collaboration happened and people went crazy in the stores. So when I saw that Marimmeko was collaborating with Target…I told myself again, I’ll be able to thrift the real deal. And I did!! The same week it came out. I had several kiddos at work (in the library) tell me my dress was fun and bright! (it’s always sweet when a little kid compliments you on your outfit!)
