Friends! Check out this dress: the perfect, perfect 1960's Mod Babydoll, no? A friend of the shop brought in a treasure trove of vintage, and this was buried and ready to be found! I'm not gonna lie, I can't believe it actually fit! :::Sigh::: Love it so much. It reminds me of so many things: Mod, Babydoll, Twiggy, 1960's, 1990's, GoGo, Riot Grrrl... all rolled into one. Paired with my favorite new boots, this could be one of my favorite outfits ever! I even got some nice compliments on my way to get coffee :).
I got a comment recently asking me which Newport I'm in- it's Kentucky! As someone who migrated to Ky as a young person, I can assure you, it's like anywhere else. I think it's funny that even adults that I meet (when out of town of course), act surprised that Jimmy and I are from Ky. I grew up in Florida, so I was pretty horrified to learn that I would be moving to Ky (would have been upset about moving ANYWHERE at that age). But no, it isn't just a region of media created hick persona's (but of course there is always a reason that stereotypes exist). I've grown to really enjoy the history of the region, and the beautiful scenery & weather. Also, looking back, I'm glad that I didn't go to high school in Ft. Lauderdale- things were very "fast" there, as you can imagine.
By now, you have probably noticed the unruly rugs that inhabit our store. They are the bane of my existence!! Grrr- I have to fix them a million times a day, haha. And we have tried everything to keep them secured to the floor- but alas, nothing solved yet. Have any suggestions??
Here is a close up of that gorgeous white textured fabric. There is a 'wave' pattern; and some fantastic balloon sleeves.
I won't bore you with my weekend; although we did have a fun little cookout!
On Saturday night, my friend Lindsay came over so I could 60's-ify her hair. She was a 1960's flight attendant. It looked awesome! The dress came from our store, which fit her perfectly. She made her navy pillbox hat, and the wings were her fathers (he was a pilot). I teased the hell out of her hair, flipped out the ends, and finished it off with a little roll to the side. We had ONE bobby pin ladies- can't believe that roll held up all night! Haha, awesome!
This outfit below turned out to be a reject of sorts. After editing, I felt they were a little boring (?) to be the subject of a whole post. Although, I found some 1970's brown bootie boots! I believe it was the day after my post where I call out to the universe to send me some cool boots. And wouldn't you know, just a few minutes ago, a friend brought in a pair of vintage black riding boots, haha. Dear god, I hope they fit. Man, that would totally finish off my list! :)

And that my friends, is one long post. Hope you enjoyed! See you tomorrow :)
