Go Here

May 29, 2009

It’s not finished (when am I ever satisfied with how my blog looks…LOL), but I’d much rather that you go to the new site instead of coming to this one…because if you come to this one, you’ll see this post.  Over and over and over and over again.  I’m leaving this blog up for pure reference and posterity purposes only – no new posts.  If you want new ish, you should probably go to the new site.  Actually, you should definitely go to the new site.

Karrie B <3s Instant Vintage

May 29, 2009

Here is one of my dear lovies, Karrie B, stuntin’ at a party in her Chain Gang:

"I'm so fabulous, I piss glitter"

"I'm so fabulous, I piss glitter"

Come on…admit you love it.

Get them here.

Worth the Wait

May 28, 2009

If you read my latest rant, this is what all that profanity (you missed a LOT) was all about:

Mudflap Jill

My very own Wendy B exclusive, Mudflap Jill!!! The detail on this piece is jaw dropping. Notice her little thumbs, pointed toes, plump derriere and *ahem* ruby capped jugs.

Mudflap Jill's ta-tas

Dudes, she even has a face and separate legs. I am in awe. I’ve been told that Wendy is making more in gold for some other lucky ladies, too. RAWR.

Wendy’s jewelry (if you’re living under a rock and had no idea whatsoever) is incredible. I had the pleasure of seeing it up close and personally over a pomegranite margarita when I visited New York and met the legend herself. I stand by my claim that she is twice as gorgeous and fabulous in person and that every piece she designs is worth the money she charges. Trust me. This isn’t a Ralph’s candy machine necklace. Not at all.

❤ you Wendy!!! I still hate the post office with the burning heat of a thousand suns, but I’ll love that woman forever. You should too. Go here. Or here.

UPDATE: I neglected to mention that Mudflap Jill isn’t available on her site.  If you reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally want one, hit up her blog and shoot her an email.  Tell her I sent ya! The necklace is now available on the site!

Better Late Than Never

May 27, 2009

Oh Em Gee!!! I had NO CLUE that my shop was featured on back on May 15th.  Are you serious?  You are?


I’d know that wrist anywhere.  Thanks to Lucky and Jennifer by way of my dearest Molly Cake (the tipper-offer of my store to the first place).

This is a Rant

May 27, 2009

dudeguy’s jeans, vintage cub scout belt, colin stuart boots, chained up vest

This is what happens when you get dressed with the intention of taking a decent outfit picture, but have your day ruined when your expected special delivery gets royally fucked by the Postal Service. I mean…it’s a 9 story building with a reception desk on the floor that the package was addressed to. To WHOM did they “attempt” to deliver it and WHERE did they leave this little “notice” informing me of where my precious cargo was being taken back to? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm? Couldn’t leave it with the receptionist, huh? Huh?


I’ll have you all know that I have a ferocious temper (with extremely low tolerance for stupidity and/or lack of common sense when it directly affects me and ish I paid for) and sometimes, throwing things into piles from across the room is the only thing that makes me feel better. Sometimes. Because right now, I still want to cuss out the damn mail carrier.

Attempted delivery my ass.


Ok, I know there has to be a reasonable explanation as to why I am not wearing my Mudflap Jill right now. Since I’m done overreacting, I will politely call USPS tomorrow and resolve this…situation.

How mature am I?


In lighter news…the site is launching on Friday! Are we ready to input new URLs into our feeds? Are we?

The Little Things

May 27, 2009

Ok, as much as I oscillate between shopping as if I have limitless funds and taking the ascetic route (usually prepping for the enormous binge to come by scouting potential buys), one would think that I have bought something from nearly every online shopping outfit available to someone on my salary.  There are, however, those certain shops that I browse, go back to, consider, and then get distracted from when a new shiny thing pops up on ebay.  One of these shops is ModCloth.

The stock of adorably cute vintage is certainly there.  The shoe stock is also a big draw.  The fact that it’s an indie operation should make it an absolute shoe-in.  Thoughts of “why have I not given them money” always seem to cross my mind as I browse the site.  Strange, I know.  Especially for me.

Fortunately, I won’t have to consider for much longer because they carry this:

Fun Guys Necklace

Yes…mushrooms on a chain.  This item is the icing on a cake full of reasons to support this site.

Anyone who’s been riding with me since December was around for the chronicles of my Nama’s illness and passing.  Lady used to tell this joke that she thought was absolutely hilarious:

This mushroom goes up to a woman and asks her out on a date.  She, of course, turns him down. Not willing, to give up, he pleads with her…

“C’mon lady, I’m a fun guy…”

Yes, it’s one of those jokes, but it made her laugh.  Hard.  You can imagine why this necklace appeals to me.

This day marks the beginning of a brand new relationship…because right now I’m looking at about 16 other things that should be in my closet.  This is only a partial list:

(sensing a color theme here…)

(yeah, definite color theme…)

END THEME – I pretty much need this shirt.  Like yesterday.

I would normally *sigh* at the site of all of this want, but shopping indie always makes me smile.  Now where is my wallet?

I’m going to be a bad blogger today.  Maybe tomorrow.

I’m going to be a bad blogger because I’ll be making chain vests in antique gold and silver, regular silver, and gunmetal.

If you’re following me on Twitter, chances are you’ll get the heads up on when they’re available in the store.  If not, just hit refresh on etsy in about…umm…4 hours or so.  😉

New site coming soon…

This Weekend

May 25, 2009

Amy Appy tank, Chained Up vest

Wow.  This weekend has flown by.  Did a lot of sleeping, a lot of shopping, went to a couple of parties and wound up in the boonies of Mount Wilson observatory getting attacked by insects and freaking out at how high up I was.  Apparently I’m NO GOOD on driving up and down mountain roads.  I gave dudeguy the blues.

I finally found a maxi dress that didn’t cost an arm and a leg after braving the clusterfuck that is Ross on Memorial Day weekend.  I also managed to pick up a James Perse tank dress at the Rack courtesy of a gift card my aunt gave me for Christmas.  What I’m most excited about however, is my Mudflap Jill necklace that I should be getting this week thanks to the amazingly fabulous Wendy B!  I’m excited.  =D

I put the chain vests in the store. Some lovely lady already called dibs on the one I’m wearing in this photo, but there is an antique silver one waiting to find a loving home. There are 4 silver (comme de this photo) right now and more metals going in tonight.  =)

Chained and Bound

May 24, 2009

Last night and this morning were productive ones…

UPDATE: since enough of you inquired, I will put the chained one in the store once more are made (give it a couple of days).  The leatha one will be special order so email me if you’re interested in one of your very own.  =)
