Oh Palm Springs

Palm Springs ended up being one of those places I never really went to (spent one night there years ago while passing through to somewhere else) – that was until we were able to head there for a wedding. I wore my summer finest, which gave me flashbacks of living in Las Vegas during the hot summers – the heat sticks to your body and you avoid going out during the peak heat moments. But, because I’ve been deprived of this type of weather so long, I just went with it. Poolside by the day, wedding fun at night. All I could have asked for. This lady has needed a break.

I can see why people like coming back now, I’m ready to explore Palm Springs more one day.

Disneyland play

Sometimes you just got to unwind and enjoy yourself in a kiddy way, so we escaped to Disneyland for a little bit (although, the price tag isn’t as enjoyable as of late). I found my most Minnie Mouse looking outfit, comfy shoes, finally got myself a little embroidered cap, and I was set! Only kids are allowed to wear costumes, but there aren’t any rules about having fun with your outfit!

Psssst, I’ll be trying out this new table form for the outfit information – so I can track my shopping sustainability a bit better. I’d love your feedback about it (if you have any).

A dress off the bucket list

There are just some things a woman who thrifts wants to find (I speak for myself clearly). I always dreamt that I would find a vintage Pucci dress, in all its 60′s swirly goodness. But I’ve never, ever, had the luck of finding anything. Like, even remotely close. I could find a new Herve Leger dress and Yves Saint Laurent heels, but yet I couldn’t find this one thing!

So when my sister called me, and asked if I wanted a Pucci dress, I was sure that it was either a) really expensive or b) she was joking. But here she was, handing me my one impossible find (thank you Diana!). It really is the perfect summer dress. Now I need a real vacation to use it! So that’s one more tick off the fashion bucket list!

Do you have that one fashion find that you hope to get one day?

In the tall grass

1. Hello California drought

2. A quick Saturday trip up north is my battery charger – stepping away from the hustle & bustle of the city is nice, makes me appreciate it all that more when I come back! I wish I could take longer trips up there, but alas! The laundry calls (along with 8 billion other errands).

Hat: Vintage. Top: Vintage. Top: The Row, from Jeremy’s SF (black or white version here). Shorts: Maison Scotch. Sandals: Nine West. Glasses: Ray Ban.

And now back to the grind! Happy Monday!

Weekend hair

I’ve never been one to be very adventurous with my hair – I’ve had it almost every length, colored it every shade of auburn and brown, and a blonde just once. But never something unnatural! I admit I’m scared. Since I recently finally caved in and went to a professional to fix my hair, it has left the ends of my hair much lighter – thus allowing for what I’m now calling weekend hair. I went to Walgreens and found some hair chalk. I got pink, but now I wish I’d gotten the blue! So now I can have fun with it on the weekends, and wash it out when it’s time to go back to work.

Dress: Betsey Johnson, I’ve had it for years. Shoes: Matt Bernson (so comfy!)
