*My pictures will be back up on friday -___- Apparently I exceeded the bandwidth. I don't know what that means, but I'm working on it! I'm still new to this html bandwidth tech savvy stuff. Whatevs -__-

SOOOOOO this past weekend, I went back home to Orange County and went shopping with my cousin B. We went to a couple vintage shops and thrift stores and found some cool stuff and some nasty stuff too...(we didnt buy the nasty stuff.. haha)

Oh, I sewed together the high water white pants the other day. There's no inspiration behind them...I just needed white pants! hahah!

I love buying old junk and turning it into not-junk! It's a lot of work sometimes to dig through piles of old stuff, but it's definitely worth it! Going to vintage stores and thrift stores I think really challenges the way you style yourself and just how you think creatively. The flower hat B is wearing is actually a centerpiece for a dining table. She put it on her head for fun and we actually really liked it. That being said,I think everyone should consider going vintage shopping more often!

ONE: It's super cheap!
TWO: You don't have to worry about someone else wearing the same shirt as you
THREE: It's really fun looking at crazy old stuff
FOUR:Vintage is the new green! SUSTAINABILITY!

*There was a racoon in the tree when I climbed in it...(BARF)Look how miserable I look...*
