Shocking story of Half Man Half Tree

Thrift Finds etc.. etc...

Look where I found my crazy cat.. I have her food in that glass jar. She also tried to eat the brown sugar-there were holes all in the bag!!! Ok these Chloe heels I got on ebay but I may sell them, I don't wear them all that often. I figure i'm going to start taking photos of all my stuff for insurance purposes, esp the valuable stuff. I have renters insurance but no proof that I own anything. Plus, this is me being bored and trying to finish off the huge bottle of wine I bought-need to drink it all before it goes rancid. Marc Jacobs score at Last Chance-may sell these on ebay also. I just hardly wear them
Jazmine gave me these old, old platforms. They are like Rainbow Bright shoes huh? Cha, Cha, Cha! This is that White Dress I wore to the White Party. It's completely see thru with lil black polka dots and lace trim. It's so pretty! I think i'll be keeping this one. It reminds me of the one kate moss is wearing here that is very revealing

I got this Lanvin shirt (2007 collection) at Last Chance for $9!!!!! It's like a poet's shirt with cool pleats on the back. I'm scared to wear it most of the time b-cuz I am super clumsy and ruin lots of white clothing and this one I can sell on ebay down the road and make a couple extra bucks. I have a hard time deciding what to wear it with also.
Below is the dress I wore for the X-Mas Party in Tempe. I got it at an Estate Sale for $25 and now it's pretty much ruined. I was so drunk I ripped the sleeve off, tore a few other sections and stained it HA! Oops, I always feel so bad ruining vintage because it lived a full life until it meets me. The dress was also more fragile than I thought. If you just pull on certain areas gently it rips like tissue paper. I believe it's an early 1900's dress

Tons of hand stitched details
see all those black holes in the grey section? yup..holes, so fragile

The sleeves have a tulip shape. They are really big at the wrists and fitted

Love the floral print on this dress-the cut on the back is super sexy. I had to have it altered to fit my non-existent chest. It reminds me of the floral Prada dresses from last year..

Cute lil pinafore by Woolrich. It seems to me that somebody added the red details themselves. I feel like Heidi when I wear it.
This is my favorite thrift find- fits me to a T.

I love the star details on the front of this dress. Inside the lil stars are rhinestones. I wear this one to work a lot.

Ok, this one is WAAY to frilly for me. It's a Jodi of California dress and it's so foofy. I thought about cutting it or dyeing it.

I have yet to wear this one. I had it altered. Maybe i'll wear this one for dinner with the girls.

Wearing this one right now! It's polyester tho..

Now on to the house goods - This Kitchenaid mixer I got at an Estate Sale for $50 and spray painted it baby blue.
This Staub cast iron tea kettle. I saw it in a magazine in orange and was like " I want one of those!" I love orange things but.. it was $100+!! So I gave up and then I found it at Goodwill for $9.99
Love these high waisted jeans from the 70's

These 70s bell bottoms remind me of Marc Jacobs a few seasons back.

Mourning/Prison Ring

Ok, the first one I just posted cuz it's cool! The rest below are all photo rings..

Remember the post I did back in early April about the vintage mourning items? Well here you will see some vintage mourning rings. Loved ones faces are imprinted on them.. check it! Rad, but kinda weird. You will find some of the coolest bakelite stuff here I don't know too much about the prison rings. If you know anything more let me know, I haven't found too much info on the internet.

I have the Luck of the Devil!

Yes..we showed up at the Tom Waits show ticketless. It sold out in 5 mins and tickets were being sold secondhand for $350++++ on craigslist- BUT, BUT!!! The last minute after waiting outside for a bit with no luck on scoring tickets Joe went to the box office to see if anything opened up and sure as shit-TWO TICKETS were released-8th row in the middle. PERFECT!!!!!! It was THE best show I have ever seen, even better than Rodan's last show ever at Lounge Ax in Chicago, even better than Merle Haggard and Bob Dylan-sorry guys! It was still rad to see ya but Mr Waits was rad.

The pics aren't the greatest but I tried!! They are also in reverse order. I can not figure out how to get these pics to post on this dumb blog. I'm too lazy to drag and fix em all.

Like these two pics were from like, 1 am at the Royale. I went with my neighbor Peter for a drink after the show. He was about to ride his bike over as soon as I pulled up to my house. Lucky guy is leaving to France for cooking school for a few weeks!!! Mrs Lil is the bartender at the Royale and she's been the bartender for the last 35 years or something crazy. I love Mrs Lil. She pours a good strong drink and they have the coolest pinball handle.. look above!

I think I look at too many celebrity photos and I tend to pose like them-arm out, chin up! At least i'm not saying "Prune" like they say the Olsen Twins do when they are taking photos.


Inside the theatre on the way out

Light fixture-neat-o!

I want to dress like Mr Waits!

The Disco Ball hat was the coolest part!
