Feeling Groovy

Here are just some of my recent acquired items (i say acquired and not purchased because all of them were gifts or hand me downs from my mom)! They're all super cute and most of them are vintage and fun!

My mom bought me this dress she found when she went thrifting with my Abuelita a few weeks ago. I think its really cute and it was union made in the 60's so I feel like I'm supporting cute old shit!

This is the bag of my dreams! My mom has two others that are like it and she's had them since I was a kid. She found it at the salvation army last week and it was in perfect condition (it looks brand new)! It's from Japan and is super cute, I think its probably early 70's and I think its precious.

 This little box was my mom's and she's had it since she was a teenager! She went to my Abuelita's house this weekend and they went through the garage and found old goodies. The inside has pictures of mushrooms and other fungi that my mom cut out of magazines back in the day. I always loved it as a kid and she decided to let me have it (she loves little boxes to store things away and since I'm moving out in a few months she wants my organization stuff to be super cute).

 Lastly, these super cute boots my mom found at the thrift store this weekend are to die for. They remind me a lot of Bob Dylan and they make me feel super cool lol (excuse the lol). She found them for $8 bucks and they're Italian leather. Finding stuff like this is always so rewarding for some reason. Can anyone explain why finding a great deal feels like you just won the lottery???

When my best friend and I were driving back from San Francisco last month it was around 10:00 pm and we were driving on the coast and through the forests of Big Sur. She made a playlist and Simon and Garfunkel's 59th Street Bridge came on and it made the scary night and curvy road feel...groovy.


I started a Threadflip page to sell some clothes on! I love the idea of reselling clothes but I just hate going to places like Buffalo Exchange and such because I don't enjoy sitting there while they judge all my clothing choices (not a knock on them that's their job). I'm not saying don't shop at consignment stores, they have very cute stuff sometimes and I do buy things there, but I don't like selling to them. Hauling in bags of clothes, selling like one or two things and then hauling it all away again is a hassle.

Anyway enough complaining! Threadflip is an awesome website that does basically the same thing but you get to set prices and they take a percentage off for shipping and stuff. You can shop from all over the country and most items include FREE SHIPPING (the godsend of online shopping).

So if you have time, and want to buy some cute stuff on the cheap, check out Threadflip and my page too if you want (just click on the picture up above)! :)

Yes, I am back. But it's not as if anyone really noticed I had left.
I guess some months ago I deleted this blog and today as I waxed nostalgic on the days when I put effort into things like blogging and fashion and what not I learned that you can in fact "undelete" a blog.

I missed being able to read up on other peoples blogs that I followed via this blog simply because I had forgotten their url's or didn't think about blogspot like ever.

So here I am again, hoping that in this semester off from school I can reignite some sort of passion for things that peak my interest such as music, fashion, tv and film making!

To start off, Gia Coppola (yes she's related to those Coppala's, who in that family isn't good at movie making???) made a movie based off of James Franco's book Palo Alto and just watching the trailer made me feel very young and alive again for the first time in months.

And, if this got you thinking about James Franco, yes I did totally watch and love his roast. I was so happy just watching it and watching like a stage full of friends make fun of each other and get each other back! Favorites included Jonah Hill ending every joke with "Just kidding, you're awesome (little giggle)" and Andy Samberg roasting himself basically. And of course gotta love when Aziz Ansari fired back for all the random out dated Indian jokes!

So yeah, it's September again and this blog is now a year old. So much has changed since I started this stupid thing but I do think it's all been for the better! I graduated high school on June 13th this year, I went to Outside Lands and roamed San Francisco for a week, I had an awesome fun summer job working at a concert arena making latte's! Now that school has started up for my younger friends, and college has begun for my aged friends I have a lot of time to explore my interests while I wait for the spring semester. Even without school I'm still looking forward to Thanksgiving and Winter breaks because that means my friends from out of town colleges get to come home for a bit, already miss them a ton and they've been gone for only a month!

Major Goal/Plans I will be bloggin'/talkin a lot about:

  • moving into an apartment with my best friend by the end of January
  • registering for classes at Santa Monica College for Spring 2014
  • working on songs/music for my band
  • my band in general (we're pretty cool but we haven't recorded anything yet)
  • working on my short film (i wanna film it over winter break with my friend who goes to school in Texas)
  • the never ending job hunt!
  • working on my grandpa's retirement house in Rosarito (lots of beach time in Mexico yay!!!)
So there ya have it, I'm back bitches, deuces ✌
