Buyers Remorse.

I love having the iphone, because if I am unsure of something, or, downright, over budget I can capture the item without having to fork out the cash. Such was the case today, when, at one of my buying haunts, I spied this amazing 1950s prom dress. I fell in love with it, but was unsure of it's salability. So I tried it on and had a mini photo sesh in the mirror instead.

I'm a Believer.

My sister and I met for lunch and did an impromptu photo shoot yesterday! Since I can remember, I have always loved this sign and was thrilled to get my picture taken in front of it! Here's to living in the bible belt, and, in your face, one word demands.

A Songstress of Synchronicity.

I am amazed at my skill for synchronicity lately. Last week I scooped the bins at the Goodwill Outlet and my first find was this killer vintage Autobiography by Tammy Wynette! Here's where it gets great, I was watching television last night only to find out that this weekend The Country Music Hall of Fame is opening a Tammy Wynette exhibit... I am gonna speed read this book on my flight to Japan, belt some chords Wynette style, and high tail it to the exhibit when I get home!!

Exhibit opened yesterday!

Creature of Couture.

This week's piece is absolutely exquisite! vintage 1960s Saks Fifth Ave dress is made of the perfect off white and black silk.
The best feature of all is the intentional off center zipper design, topped off with a black bow.

Kon'nichiwa Nippon

Next month I am going to Japan to sing with my pops! I am so excited that I have the opportunity to perform in Japan. Apparently my dad's band has a big cult following over there who knew??!!! I have dreamt about visiting Japan since I got my first Little Twin star tea set at age 6 only intensified when I bought the book Fresh Fruits in college. While I am going to be working my tail off, I am already researching the spots that I am gonna hit up. I cannot wait for all of the eye candy and real candy (see jelly filled marshmallows YUM) my head is going to be spinning with inspiration...and jet lag ;)
