Waiting For My Man…

Pat and I had a really great weekend! Friday night’s show at Gilman was really fun even if it was ridiculously cold here in the Bay Area that evening (it snowed in the hills). And Sunday we went out to lunch with a couple friends of Pat’s and then did a little vintage shopping. I’ve been sticking to my 30 for 30 rules and not shopping, but I DID do some window shopping and hinted to Pat about a couple awesome necklaces for my birthday next week.

Pat took this photo of me while I was sitting on our front porch. We both thought it reminded us of Andy Warhol or the Velvet Underground. What do you think? Is there a little Lou Reed in me?

I’m wearing all items from my 30 for 30 but you can’t really see them in this pic. We’ve been really bad at getting pictures taken for the challenge, forgive me!

30 For 30 Round-Up!

Hey peoples! Here’s a little update for you on how my 30 for 30 challenge is going. So far I haven’t missed a day, which is awesome! I’m dressed in my 30 for 30 items today but am skeptical that I will be able to take photos today. But it might happen! Anyway, here are days one through nine! Do you have a favorite?

I think my favorites are days four, five and six! I LOVE my outfit I wore on day five – it reflects what I wish every outfit had. I little vintage and a little edge. What do you think?

9/Thirty – Taking Out The Trashman

So what’s up with the title you ask? Oh I was just eyeballing that trash man in the bottom boots photo. You’d think I would think to crop him out but no. Oh well! I figure he might want his 15 minutes of blog fame too! ha.

Dress – Modcloth

Boots – Oh you know, the same old brown boots I’ve been wearing.

Socks – Black thigh highs from American Apparel

Necklace – Hand made fused glass

Man was it windy today! You can tell by how much my hair is swirling around in these pics. I really love it though. I look all wind blown and romantic. Right? Right?

Enough babbling for now, until tomorrow Dearies!

8/Thirty – Oh The Romance

Hello Everyone! This is my outfit from yesterday – Valentine’s Day! I didn’t intend to wear such a VDay themed color scheme, but apparently I was feeling the love without even being aware. My Mister and I don’t really go in for this romantic holiday. We tend to spoil each other on a daily basis instead. But we DID go out to eat some Thai food and see the film The Illusionist. The film is super sweet and I highly recommend it for anyone who is a fan of The Triplets of Belleville (same director and animation team) and Jacques Tati (he wrote the original screenplay – and he makes a cameo). It’s also up for an Animated Film Oscar!

Top- Red Forever 21 Sweater

Bottom- Jessica Simpson zipper leggings

Boots – Kensie “hiking” boots. Man do I LOVE these boots. They are all furry inside and super comfy. I only wish I could wear them all year round, but for some reason they just look so wintery to me!

Tank – cheapo lace cami

Scarves – Leopard Print scarf from Calivintage/Floria Vintage giveaway and Blue flower scarf “stolen” from my sister.

It was a rainy night last night and my new Kensie boots got all wet and drippy. I actually love it when my shoes get worn in so I’m not too bummed. I honestly ❤ rain, even when its blowing so hard that my umbrella turns inside out and I end up completely soaked. This happened to me today on my walk home. It was really PRETTY though.

Until later Dearies!

7/Thirty – 7 Days A Week

I did it! I wore seven 30 for 30 outfits in a row, even though I said I was only going to do it 5 days a week! I’m so proud of myself. Now I just have to keep up this momentum!

As you can probably already tell, we went bowling on Saturday night! My top score was a bit over 100. I normally bowl better than that but it must have been an off night. Our friend Jon bowled an impressive 178 – I need to start taking lessons from HIM! Anyway, check out what I wore below!

Sweater – Black Banana Republic Cardigan

Top -Brown Oversized Tee

Bottom -Black Shorts

Leggings – Very holey striped gray footless tights – these are totally falling apart and though i love them dearly, they may have to be retired soon. Holes are one things, but these are wearing thin.

Shoes -Bowling shoes! I love the color of these! Though I had on my Diesel Trainers for most of the day. You can check those (and the layers I normally wear) below.

Jewelry – That same blue flowered scarf I’ve had tied to my wrist for a week and a pretty faux turquoise cuff from my mom.

Scarf – Pretty vintage Frank Lloyd Wright print scarf that Pat got me for X-mas last year. I love this scarf!

Here are a couple photos Pat and I took while waiting for BART to take us to the bowling party. I think i might have too many buttons on that jacket these days! They just keep adding up one and a time and I didn’t realize that there were so many of them until now!

So yeah I made it to day 7! I’ll probably be doing a recap here in a little bit so keep your eyes peeled for it.

Until next time dearies!

6/Thirty – Dress Project Number Three!

I had lunch yesterday with my boyfriend Pat and his sister Katie. She brought along her new baby Harper (a girl) and so it was a lot of fun playing and holding her while we waited for our food. Check out the amazing photo below that Pat took with his iPhone.

I spent the afternoon hosting Michael Franti at Amoeba Berkeley. I’m not the biggest fan of his music but his energy and message are amazing! He is so present and charming, interacting with him on a professional and personal level was a pleasure. I had one of those moments when I really value the fact that I’ve met someone special. It was really a treat!

And here’s what I wore!

Dress – Dosa – Here is another item that I got from the clothing swap. I really made out good on that one!

Sweater – American Apparel – X-Mas gift from my mommy

Boots -Those same boots I keep wearing from AV Clubwear

Scarf -I won my scarf on a giveaway at Calivintage!

Jewelry – Fused glass necklace I made by fusing two pieces of glass together after “painting” a spine onto the glass with gold leaf. Then I attached a chain that I took off of another item of clothing that I don’t wear anymore. The Clipper Ship Locket is from the Renegade Craft Fair in SF last Summer and I wear it all the time.

This is also the third installment in my Dress Project. There are 4 dresses in my swap picks So if you are following along to see how I will wear all of my (40) dresses this year please keep your eyes peeled. I’ll be wearing some of my other dresses outside of the 30 for 30 on the weekends!

And I’ll leave you with this amazing picture Pat took at lunch of me with the Demon Baby! I seriously can’t stop laughing when I see this. Amazing no?
