Field Trip.

I'm not sure I'm going to make it to the weekend... the excitement is beginning to be too much!  Aghh, Halloween.  It's almost here!  I have a party Friday, Saturday & Monday.  3 costumes- oh yeah.  I'm thinking that on Friday I'll do a regular post, then take pictures at the party and make that Saturdays post; and so on until Tuesday.  Two of my costumes hinged on a vintage piece of clothing from Ebay, and I'm happy to report, that they both fit!  Thank the universe.  Really, the only thing left to buy is tights, and white face paint.  Luckily, there is a fantastic costume shop (that stays open year round) on the same main road as the shop, so I can walk down :). 

Anyway, this sweater is NOT something I would ever seek out, but when I put it on I knew it had to be mine.  It's soft and warm, and the fit is exactly what I look for in a sweater (and as well all know, is the hardest thing to find in a vintage sweater).  I went on a quick thrift trip this morning, and found a glorious fringe jacket for the store!  It's really the first time I've ever found a vtg. fringe leather jacket, so it was an exciting moment.  And I'm glad it didn't fit me- I would hate to have to keep it! 

Um, is everyone else out there aware that 'The Wonder Years' is on instant watch on Netflix now???  I've been waiting years and years for that damn show to come out on dvd, and now I can finally watch it!  Happy day!  So yes, the next week of my life will be spent vigorously taking in 6 full seasons of Kevin Arnold awesomeness.  One of my favorite episodes is Kevins' "summer love".  Is he at 'Coney Island'?  Anyway, the colors, the mood and 'I wish that I knew what I know now, when I was younger..' playing in the background is enough to solidify it as one of my favorites :).  I'm so glad it held up to the test of time! 

Oh, also, I just started watching 'The Walking Dead'.  Yeah, it's rocking our worlds.  We watched the entire series so far in one day..  lol.  Now we're week to week status.  Ughh, the horror!  Show marathons are the best.

See ya tomorrow, ally.

  1. Thank you so much for your kind wishes lovely friend:). You look a charm in your candy floss pink sweater, it fits beautifully and I love it with the pretty yellow blouse. The shop is looking amazing and it must be a bitter-sweet moment when you find something you want that doesn't fit so you "have" to sell it:). Can't wait to see all those party outfits, thank god for eBay! xo
