This gave me a good laugh this morning

I looked at my blog stats this morning, and someone found my blog by searching, "sneaking a peak at older wemon" I hope you found what you were looking for, mystery searcher :D

(Early) Musical Monday: Cry Baby

I will be out of town until Tuesday so I figured I would do my Musical Monday post early.

John Waters and My Love of Retro/Vintage

There's no doubt that watching John Waters movies like Hairspray and Crybaby as a child imprinted some love of retro/vintage in my mind forever. I'm going to see him perform his one-man show at a film festival next week. I've seen it once before, and was able to meet him afterwards. It was seriously one of the best nights of my life! I was just in awe the whole night! I'm super excited about seeing him again!

Musical Monday: Forever Plaid

There was a version of Forever Plaid on TV this weekend. Unfortunately I missed the first one, and the second one was on at 4am. I am a severe night owl, and am usually up that early (or late?), but this was one of the few occasions I wasn't going to be up that late because of work. Oh well.

What Not to Wear Made-Over a "Vintage Girl" Tonight!

What Not to Wear has been one of my favorite shows since it's been on TV. Tonight, they made over a woman that dressed in head to toe vintage. At first all I could think was, "Oh no, don't do it!" but it ended pretty well, I thought. They actually let the woman keep a good chunk of her vintage wardrobe, and even used her own vintage clothing in some of the clothing examples for outfits she should look for. In the end, she still had some good vintage pieces, but they showed her how to pair them with modern clothing. They also had some of her vintage tailored so it would look as good as possible. I have no problem with people who want to wear head to toe vintage, a piece or two, or no vintage at all, but I personally think she looked much better after the makeover. I was really excited to see the end result. Did anyone see tonight's episode? What were your thoughts?

Vintage Manicure

My friend, Star, gave me a vintage manicure today! I've never had one before, and this was her first time doing one. I looove it! It just looks so dainty!

Musical Monday: Harold and Maude/Cat Stevens

Harold and Maude is not actually a musical, BUT I feel like if it had different music, it would be a totally different movie. Maybe I'm way to into it, but I loooove this movie, and I looooove Cat Stevens. I think the two were made for each other.

This post brought to you by the color pink

My sister and her friend stopped by my house on the way back from their Spring Break trip. We went to Exile, that store I mentioned that is closing. Everything was at least 50% off, and was a 10 dollar minimum for credit cards. After I found these gloves, I HAD to buy a couple more thing to reach that limit (and beyond). Poor me, right? I'm also going home for my spring break, so I'm sure that will mean more thrifting with my other sister. I can't wait!
