shop spotlight

SuPmon is a pretty cool Etsy shop I recently came across full of really neat (mostly Wes Anderson) film illustrations. Not only is the shop full of these, but the owner also has his own original works AND coolest of all, a customized I always wanted to be a Tenenbaum listing where you can be added to the Tenenbaum family! Neato!
 (he also has a few illustrations from The Big Lebowski as well!)

prom ride

Things lately have been busy, busy, busy again, as usual. On Monday night we decided last minute to join in on the fun and go on the FBC prom ride. So, here are a bunch of pictures of people that I don't know to share some of the funny prom attire. All photos are from the FBC blog.
 And that last photo is me and some people I do know.
The night was a pretty crazy adventure involving a broken bike, being stranded, finally meeting up with the group at a gay biker bar, tequila, dancing and a 2 a.m. diner dinner. It was a pretty good night.

You can see other FBC events here

stuff & things vol. 13

I really love Mandi's handmade dress and really want to make one just like it of my own.
But you know, not maternity.
What's cooler than floral jorts?! I need to find a pair!
What a clever tattoo idea! I love this!

I am so excited for this to come out! It looks so cool, plus Leo is just the dreamiest.
If I had $238 to spare I'd definitely grab this dress! I've never been a big stripe person, but I've been crazy about them lately!
Sarah of Mouse Trap Vintage posted this awesome Moonrise Kingdom themed update.

If you haven't seen this yet you must!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

I can't quite recall what led met to Reading While Eating: The Photography of Juliette Tang, but I had it bookmarked and am glad I did. These are some lovely images.

new goods.

Just wanted to stop by and share the couple new items in the shop this week. A few old listings, a few not yet listed, but mostly fresh new goods already hanging out in the shop!

I just wish those blue sandals fit me! I think they are the comfiest thing I have set my foot upon (since they're not big enough to put my foot inside)!

behind the scenes

W Magazine just released some behind the scenes photos for Moonrise Kingdom. I had kind of forgotten about its May 25th release date since it snuck up so crazy fast (um, it's almost the end of May! What?!). Well, turns out it is a limited release and isn't playing anywhere near me. It'll be another whole month until the full release (June 29th), but I'm sure it will be here in no time!

Also, here's a funny tour/interview with the great Bill Murray.

more treasures

Oh, hey, it's been a while. After an unintended week away from the blog I hope to be back for good. I just can't believe how crazy busy life has been lately! Here's hoping things slow down a little bit!

I got a Wacom tablet a couple of weeks ago and this was my first attempt at using it. It's pretty fun to use, but it'll take a little bit of getting used to. I'm pretty excited about it! What's new with you?!

dear creatures

How is it possible that Fall/Winter collection lookbooks are already being released?!
It's crazy, but I don't think you can really mind all that much when they're this cute!

new hair & repeat pieces

I mentioned the other day that I dyed my hair. Well, here are the results, except that it's a little bit lighter in real life. It's kind of a mix of blonde, brown, yellow and orange, but it's really been growing on me this past week.

I wore this outfit the other night just hanging out with some friends. I just keep wearing this skirt, I really need to find a similar one that isn't corduroy! This is probably the 10th time it has popped up in an outfit post! Whoops! And this crop top is a piece that expired in my shop. I tried it out and kinda liked it. Who knows, maybe it'll go back into the shop, or maybe it'll just stay in my closet. 
This week has totally thrown me off. I've been working overnight, sleeping all day and then being lazy for the couple hours I have between waking up and going back in to work. But it's finally over now and I couldn't be happier! Back to regular, structured life! I hope you all have a great weekend! I know I'll be enjoying what feels like the first time off I've had in weeks!

in MFV

It makes me so happy to see a customer enjoying something they bought (or in this case won) from my shop! Geena Rose just featured her new dress on her blog. How cute is she?! You can see more of it over at her blog.

You can also see some other girls looking cute in Maggie's Farm Vintage.
here,  here & here
 If anyone else has any photos in MFV I'd love to see/share them.

So, send them my way!

costume change

My days off work usually consist of several costume changes. I think I just get wrapped up in everything when I'm sewing and trying things on and checking them out. It's kind of ridiculous how many times I change outfits! Is anyone else guilty of this?!

But really, a costume is really kind of what this outfit feels like to me. It looks a lot more grungy than it felt at the time! I have had that sweater for years and I don't think I've worn it once! I've also had the shorts for forever and have almost worn them to their death. And then, I finally gave the sheer top (with only a bra) a try and I think I liked it..? I guess I was feeling a little daring with this look. But I only ran to Target to grab some hair dye (I'll share the results soon, if you haven't seen them on instagram) while wearing it.

stuff & things vol. 12

Fake house hunting is probably one of my favorite time-sucking things to do online. I found a few really great places recently. Including this one that not only looks really nice, but is a lot cheaper than our place. Bummer!
This is really cool!
The fact that Maggie's Farm is at 299 sales! Sale 300 gets a special gift! Who is it going to be?! :)
 So, How I Met Your Mother is one of the greatest shows ever, right?! I've been re-watching the whole series on Netflix these last few weeks and no matter how many times I see each episode they'll always be hilarious! 
I totally got sucked into Handmade Ryan Gosling once again last night. He's just so sweet and understanding. :)
I had to include this after cracking up when I saw it on Kaelah's blog!

I hope you all have a great weekend!!
