Vintage Photos -- 1950's - 1960's

Loving these vintage photos. I love how the dress matches the carpet. How fun is that?

Okay, so matching your walpaper, how fun is that....

Forever 21 Lace Trim Shirt

Perusing the Forever 21 website, I ran across this new arrival. From the twelve by twelve colleciton. It retails for $26.00. Love the tie at the neck and the lace at the sleeves, and hem. Dressy but still casual, great with jeans and flats.

Boyfriend Watches

Boyfriend watches are big. All the celebrities are wearing them. You've seen Taylor Jacobson wear her Man's Rolex on Rachel Zoe. Don't have a Rolex budget? No worries. You can get a great Timex for under $50.00. Fifty dollars too rich right now? Hit your local Target, where they have them for $14.99. Still more than you want to spend? Raid your dad's jewelry box. Or in my case, I raided my own jewelry box, and found this old watch. Perfect with a cluster of bangles or a tennis bracelet. Boyfriend watches, any age can wear them. Put a little trend in your fashion.

A Girl's Gotta Do Laundry!!

One more non-fashion post. A girls's gotta do laundry. So when perusing my neighborhood Big Lots for nothing in particular, I ran across this shower curtain that said "Laundry" all over it. Well I have a water heater to hide in my laundry room, and this is perfect. That does bring me to the question, --Why would a shower curtain say "Laundry" all over it? Oh, well, what a great find for $1.00. They sold it to me for one dollar. What a great way to spend a dollar. Shoe store here I come.

2010 Organizing

It is fashionable to be organized in 2010. I bought one of these little Rolodex's at my local office supply. This is the year I get totally organized!! I am putting all phone numbers, addresses, and passwords in it so I have a hard copy. Then putting it in a safe place. I guess I could just type all into word and print out, however, I am constantly adding and subtracting, and this just seemed easier. So -- Are you getting organized?

I am also making an effort to stick to a budget, and writing down everything I spend on fashion, food, etc. Not fun, but very insightfull.

Not Fashion - But a Great Display Lamp

Not fashion, but a great display lamp. I love putting things on display. This, what I call Alternate Universe Lamp from Target for $39.99 is just amazing. (It is similar to one that Pottery Barn sells for $169.99). This would be great in any fashionista's room, filled with notions, patterns, or any fun small object. Hey, you could even put some shoes in it if you so desired. Imagination, up to you.
