White Lights

This weekend has been kind of a bust. I was terribly ill yesterday and had to miss the Rookie Closing Party at Space 1520 with my coworkers, but they looked beautiful nonetheless!

Tonight I am getting bangs again, so say fare the well to my ever pale forehead, at least for a little while!

Life The Past Month Via Instagram

Here's a little snippet of the mayhem that has been my life the past month, through the eyes of
instagram. The bulk of them are from a visit earlier in July to Seattle which was just really lovely!

My little brother gifted me a vintage Lord Of The Rings book and  I got to spend plenty of time with my gentleman caller before returning to L.A! Enjoy my photo journal.

And I'll give you an actual well organized outfit post soon!

A stroll through the park

A stroll through the park, or rather a hike, and let me tell you I was not really wearing the proper shoes! I went with my talent friend Othello to the valley to take some photos in the beautiful park there.

It was heinously hot, and being a Seattle girl body and soul I fair poorly in the hot weather, but we hiked around and took some great photos, and enjoyed gourmet sausage afterward.

Fond and prolonged farewells.

You know, as I prepare myself for the move back to Seattle I find myself feeling more and more nostalgic, and yes, even tid bit sad.  I think there are a ton of reasons we move back to where we came, and a ton of reasons why some of us don't. But my experience here in Los Angeles has been really lovely, and I have the best job and mentors a  girl can ask for.

I guess for now, lurking around the store and taking photos is what I'll do to satiated my need to have some physical memorial to carry with me from place to place. It's been looking really good  here at our tiny Pasadena space lately! Enjoy.

Dear Creatures Sample Sale/Hello!

I guess it's sometimes appropriate to start something the new with ending of something old.  I've been thinking about blogging for a very long time and have never really forced myself to do it. It'll be a bit skeletal for awhile but I invite you to follow my life, the things, food, people and fashion I love.

If you need to know anything about me, it's that I have red hair, I work at the most amazing vintage store The Loved One and I currently live in Echo Park.  Also important, in about six weeks I will be leaving all of these beloved things behind to move back to my hometown of Seattle, so thanks for joining me fore the transition.

Recently we had a really wonderful sample sale at the shop with a brand I love Dear Creatures.  Rob and Bianca are pretty much the sweetest folks around and they make a really lovely, not to mention affordable line. Of course I pretty much gorged myself on goodies. I'm a huge fan of "treatin yo self", plus I'm moving home and woefully shall not be able to partake of their events any longer!

It was pretty darn crazy! Lots of folks waiting in a line out the door and my head spinning as I tried to ring them all up in a timely and accurate manner. Check out a few snaps from and after the event below!
