a heavenly exposition


Every six months the magical Vintage Fashion Expo comes to town and my wallet explodes. One of the expo dates always falls right around my birthday, which means of course that I treat myself to a few beautiful new pieces. And by 'few' I mean a giant, stuffed bag full. This year I found a 1960's green lace vest and matching pants (seriously, best outfit ever), a pale pink sparkly 1970's blouse, several 1950's circle skirts, a brown 1950's cardigan, an I. Magnin hat in the prettiest shade of rusty orange, and a tote bag that looks like the Kool-Aid mascot (just as crazy as it sounds). Birthday money well spent, I say.

ahhh, i had tickets to go the expo both days, but when the weekend came around I knew I didn't have enough money to go. I hope by the next time the expo rolls around I'll have job in SF and can afford to have my wallet explode : )
You look beautiful!!
