Don't Go Far From Here

Yesterday i was feeling a bit fussing about being couped up all day while the weather was so beautiful, so i decided to catch what was left of the day, and went for a small adventure. I ended up going to Long Beach and taking a quick stroll down Retro Row. While i was there i decided to cruise around the neighborhood to get the lay of the land since i am considering hunkering down and finding me my own perfect little vintage apartment! However,i left empty handed and didn't quite find THE perfect little cocoon to call home but before dinner i stopped off at the park to snap a few photos of what i wore for the day. Unfortunately i winded up breaking that necklace shortly after i took these photos but now i have a reason to go on a hunt for new jewelry!

Im back from my trip to Seattle, WA! I was suppose to be home last Friday but spontaneously hours before my flight was originally suppose to leave miss bee hives convinced me to cancel my flight and hop in the car and drive back to my hometown(Spokane,WA) to surprise my mum which i have not seen in over a year! I was only in Spokane for less than 36hrs and the majority of my time was spent visiting miss bee hives! My first night on the town in Seattle, Cassie and I got all gussied up to go see Crow Quill Night Owls, only to realize we had just missed their set as we got there! However, we did catch them the next night in Bellingham, which was my birthday and i couldn't have found a better way to kick off turning 21 then seeing my favorite jug band while kicking up my skirt and heels and dancing the night away to some ol' time 20s & 30s jazzy tunes!

what's a lady to do?

Help! Which dress should i wear? My 21st birthday is on Wednesday, and im in a frenzy as to what to wear! I have decided i want to enjoy the early evening wearing a 1920s dress, so i spent the afternoon today picking through my collection and after trying on a dozen plus 1920s beaded dresses i have narrowed it down to just three! Of course between dressing my two best friends and myself there will be several wardrobe changes through out the night, but im in a pickle as to what to wear to dinner? Do you have a favorite?

She's Here!

My new(old)1920s beaded beauty has arrived! It never ceases to amaze me that there are still 1920s beaded dresses out there to be found! The hand beading detail is incredible, and the structured wired hips have such a lovely fairy princess look that i feel that i should be frolicking in fields of wild flowers in it! Although,I had originally bought this dress to add to my collection of 1920s dresses, but depending on where I am and what im doing, im going to bust this baby and or a few others out for my 21st birthday!
