the bee’s knees…


Hello! I’m back and a year older! Last Sunday was my birthday and as a punishment for celebrating, I’ve been sick with a cold this week. Ah well, I keep forgetting I’m not as young as I used to be :) And colds are somehow worse when it’s 105 degrees outside…

It was also our good friend Sam’s 30th last week so we got a group together to stay at a local hotel and wigs/hats/monocles/fake cigarettes were encouraged, because celebrating is just more fun that way, right?

Fun fact: This gold dress was the first vintage dress I ever bought- back in the 90s when I was living in Eugene and trying to break out of my grunge/flannel style :) Don’t judge, it was the 90s!

    Happy belated birthday!
    May I first of all say, that hound’s tooth suit is KILLING IT. Killing it. I do love a loud pattern!
    Are those blue shoes Fluevogs? It looks like his kind of heel shape! And colour scheme. Dreamy, either way! Look like you guys had a good time! But with cigarette holders, sassy wigs and flashy attire, how could you not?!

      Thank you! Yeah, his suit was pretty awesome and he thrifted it that day- he’s lucky with the thrifts like that :) The shoes aren’t Fluevogs- I wish! I love their stuff. They were actually from Ruche last spring.
