i'm a HUGE fan of The Cult...love love their music and style. when i first got turned on to them i was a kid and i could not forget their music video that played constantly on MTV back when they played videos aww i miss those days..it was for their song Fire Women, and i saw Ian with his long black thick locks and hat it just stood out to me..i really didn't appreciate his style as much then as i do now..but he is definitely one of my many Male style crush's..i would not mind raiding his closet although his recent style no longer reflects his gypsy style roots..but hey we all change..

woah it's been almost a darn week since i last blogged..the fact that i am still waiting for my internet connection to kick in is one reason, the other is my day job is kickin my butt right now with 20 things to juggle at once..all i want to do is come home feed Zoe and crash!
outfit post sometimes makes me feel a bit narcissistic, because i know this is a character trait which can be innate in us humans and when fed it will grow..but i balance this perceptive out with the fact that i know allot of us bloggers and blog readers quite enjoy sharing and seeing other's way of styling clothes..at-least I DO and it's a memory card in my book, it's also very fun and i LOVE vintage and vintage styling, hands down..i have my friends to knock me of that cloud if i ever go there..
on this day i felt very slouchy knowing i had a long day ahead of me running around trying to get samples made, technicalities done and meetings to be in...i needed comfort!
Photographs: Zoe my great photographer (she just had to take one of our house warming gifts, a cute flamingo in our front yard).
Wearing: vintage 90's electric blue knubby sweater, grey heather basic tee Target, abbey dawn jeans, re-worked vintage necklace by Trixy Jewels (i love love this necklace, can't take it off), vintage 70's italian booties
i can't wait for this weekend me and Zo will be hitting the PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) and exploring each beach town until we hit Laguna Beach..pictures to follow!

Happy Monday! yay me and the Zo-miester are all settled in our new home and i am ready to start cranking out the blog post and vintage updates once again! this week the store will be filled with allot more cute vintage 90's dress's..they have been flying out the store..THANK you ladies..I can't wait to do a "chick night" post which I haven't done in ages because of all the hecticness.
Zo and I spent our night watching old skate videos..one a documentary about Christian Hosoi..she wants to start learning how to skateboard so i'm basically showing her the history of some of the most amazing professional skateboarders of our time..at the moment her favorite is Tony Hawk..of course, more relatable.
any-hoo we had fun taking these silly pictures..i hope you all have a lovely night and thank you ALL for the well wishes on our move!

so this weekend Zoe and I are on the move..i will be missing in action for a few days but i hope to be back to work and new items to be posted next week..we are so excited to move into our little cottage..pictures to come soon..after moving to Los Angeles we had to down grade to a one bedroom because the rents here are up the wah-hoo, but through many blessings and hard work we were able to FINALLY get a cute two bedroom place owned by my land lord...the property is right across the street so it won't be to hard of a move..i count my blessings..
hope your having a good one, be back soon!
