Peachy Keen.

Hair Acc.:  Butterfly, Felt flower (DIY);  Bakelite hair comb (Heirloom)
1950's? Silk/Chiffon Blouse (Estate Sale, $1)
1930's Knit belt (Matches dress, 'Sin City', $12)
1970's Peach bellbottoms ('Casablanca Vtg.', $16)
Knockoff 'Korkease' sandals :(    (Thrifted, $6)

Wow, this blouse is beautiful!  I've wanted to wear it so many times, and it may not seem like it, but it's kind of hard to style with the other items in my wardrobe.  I can picture a million things to wear it with- but I don't own any of them- rats.  :)  But then I remembered my peach pants!!

That comment got me thinking.
I don't know about you guys, but there seems to be some negativity floating around lately.  Not just for me, but for the people close to me- in a big way.  Comments, and general negative attitudes that are forced into your conciousness.  Obviously, you ignore, then you ignore some more.  And, unfortunately, fighting back has proven to NEVER be the answer.  What I (we, you, humanity) take offensively, the 'hapiness intruder' doesn't even register.  Every single person participating in the same situation, is going to walk away with a vastly different outlook.  Holding back, staying calm, and not reacting is a muscle that needs to be developed, just like anything else. 

How do YOU stay upbeat when someone is constantly sending negative vibes your way? 

Dinner was great last night!  Sadly, no pictures.  Haha, I just can't get used to it!  I have all the intentions in the world, I'll take a couple, and then foget until it's too late- lol.  Tomorrow, Chad (Jimmy's bro), is having a little pool party for his actual b-day, which is awesome because I haven't swam once this year! 

I'll be at home tonight in crazy bake-mode for the vegan bake sale tomorrow- mmm, cupcakes.  Let's hope for some sunshine people! 

Love the built-in scarf!!

Wowsa- this blouse came with the original tag- which is priced $420!?!  It came from a store named 'Matrin's'.  Since there isn't a brand tag, I did some research on the store, and found out that it was a boutique in New York City, circa 1940's-early 1970's.  Judging by the lack of taggin (except for a lot # tag), and the fabric, I am guessing this top was made between the 40's-late 50's.  I WISH there was another way to date this top- if anyone knows anything more, kindly enlighten me!

I hope you all have a great weekend! 
(I have been listening to the 'Little Miss Sunshine' soundtrack at work for the past couple days... don't know if you can tell, haha.)

  1. Not only am I drooling over your incredible outfit - PEACH PANTS! - but you've given me some delicious food for though. I've got the LMS soundtrack on it's way to me now as I loved that movie so much, so I'll be listening to that this weekend. Sometimes I take my camera out to meals but I feel such a dick photographing everything when I'm supposed to be relaxing: "Stop! Don't eat that, I've got to take a pic!" - see what I mean;))? I do LOVE food posts though and admire anyone who has the tenacity to see it through to dessert with pics. The blouse is stunning and I love the attached scarf - the original price is madness!! Beautiful cat eyes hon, and yes, we original types need to exercise that "calm" muscle. xoxo

  2. I adore that blouse! absolutely beautiful!
