schoolgirl crush

Just when I think I'm a mature adult...... I go and give myself a haircut just like my 5 year old self used to do.... However, according to friends... "you have that kind of hair that even if you fuck it up, you can't even tell!".

Not sure how to take that statement.

Here's a few of my hairstyles muses... I always revert back to Jenny Lewis or Kate nash. Can't help it! :) Perhaps i'll get the courage to do a style post of myself. Feel a bit odd about it. I'm not good at playing cute. I usually pull out the Awkward Card.

...And just sometimes... i go black and pull a zooey. Haven't in a while though.

Wishing my cubical was at leeeeeeast by a window.
some things i try not to think about while wasting my days at work.
-my bed, where, most likely, my boyfriend is stiiiiiill snuggled up in
-the outdoors... Even as cold as it is today, i would love to be walking around town.
-delicious savory lunch smells wafting throughout the cubicals..... Someone is always eating a cheeseburger and fries....i swear.

Sparrow in the Papers

Great article about the Bayview neighboor hood of Milwaukee!
Featuring my co-owned store Sparrow Collective!
But now that i'm seeing this view, I can't wait to repaint in May! :)

Small Update

Small vintage update this week. We got a few great items on our thrifting trip on saturday. The majority of the items were for personal keep though. :)
Here's some of the shoes. Also, be on the lookout for a sale starting on friday! We're listing a few of our fall items on clearance.

online shopping to sway the mind from real things... and real work at that.

These boots have been on my mind ever since Stephanie and I abused my corporate discount in fall. And finally...... I economically indulged... 70% off. yay.
I wear boots all year long and my wallet loves that the retail world doesn't.

hunting and gathering

A simple vintage update. The only good pictures that i took saturday afternoon after a long day of thrifting with Tara and Angie. Sun was just about to set and the streetlights were starting to turn on....
Found some great finds on our Vintage hunt. Got this beautiful handmade eyelet purse for the shop....A few pair of shoes as well (will post later this week)... Tara and I fought over a wooden chest, which she won. :) aaand Angie scored a huge owl lamp! a wee bit jealous.
We were even able to compile a thrift hit list for next time.

Some of my favorites

Realized i haven't posted pictures of my mexican trip anywhere. Here's a few of my favorites.

Vintage Update

Excited about all these vintage finds i got when i went out this weekend... and for a sunday at that! Usually i assume the best have been snatched up by then. And they were all half off as well! You can find them here.

Will be venturing out this saturday as well. Tara and I have big plans. Hope my luck continues.

New Years in San Miguel was great. Dispite a few of us being mildly sick... we had a great sober evening in the garden.

It's the 100 anniversary of Mexico's freedom and they definitely kicked it off right.

live music, oodles of free goodies, and fireworks all around you.

We all plan to go back to San Miguel. But perhaps next time in a van, so we can buy more stuff!!
