the Blues.

DIY "True Love" heart barrette ($2, 'Fabricate')
Navy Dress ('Mod Cloth', $42, years ago, xmas gift from Mom)
1970's Red Jacket (Thrifted, $6)
1990's Girl Scout Patch (DIY'd into a pin, and earned by me)
Brown Tights
1960's Red, White & Blue Wedges (Etsy, xmas gift from Mom)

Oh, what a morning it has been.  It's been THAT kind of a morning.  A ripped tights, button popping, rainy, cold, bumping into everything kind of a morning.  :)  Now that that's out of the way; check out these awesome shoes!  Damn, right?  From the front they look like your normal bowling-esque shoes, then you turn to the side, and, Bam!  They are perfectly mod wedges.  My mom got them for me for Christmas last year from Etsy; they were only $24 (!?).  Thanks mom!

So, I finally stopped into 'Fabricate', a Cincinnati store that is dedicated to all things hand-made.  I've been missing out!  There were all kinds of goodies in all price ranges (I'm always afraid everything will be WAY out of my price range in these small stores).  I got this rad cushion-ey "True Love" heart hair pin, a plastic Hammerhead shark hair pin, and a cool ring.  Also, they've started to carry some art supplies, so I picked up some much needed white felt; all for $14!  I'd say that's a good deal.  But, you can definitely find some pricier items. 

I found out this morning that I'll be attending 3 Halloween parties this year- score!  I'll take ANY excuse I can get to have multiple costumes :).  I'm making one, and buying the other (it's vintage).  Excited!!!

Remember that 'They Might Be Giants' show I was telling you about?  Well, I actually took a couple pictures!  (Which is no small feat when you are trying to have a good time at an awesome concert). 

The show was at a place called 'The Southgate House', which is located in Newport (where I live).  It's my ALL TIME favorite place to see shows, hands down.  There are 3 floors, all of which have a stage (and often times, there are 3-4 bands on each stage in one night).  Plus, I'm able to walk there, which is one of the reasons we moved to Newport (yeah, I'm serious..haha).  Jimmy's band 'Sweet Ray Laurel' is playing there tonight, so if you live in the area, come out and hang out with me, geez! 
I know, I'm talking your head off today, but the other night I watched a movie called, "Feast of Love", and it was fantastic.  It's one of those movies that follows the lives of several people who are all connected in some way.  Such a beautiful movie.  And, ladies and gentlemen, there is enough nudity for even your boyfriends/you to enjoy!  Haha, just joking.  (Not about the nudity part).  It's a really insightful movie, and makes you feel really grateful for the love in your life. 
Have an awesome Friday.
