Did I mention my vintage Christian Dior 1970's sunglasses?

what I wear.

(I don't think it even counts anymore as fashion when you follow a formula. Dress? CHECK. Heels? CHECK? Crapload of bracelets? CHECK. Curls? CHECK. What rut??)

UNFORTUNATE TARGET BAG-TARGET :(

le sigh. I wear it because I deserve to.

what I want.

I want to confess!
My love she has a mistress.
Or I do. So to speak.

I have been a loyal ebay shopper for years now. I love the WIN! And I love the unexpected, ever-changing selection. But lately mine eyes and mine heart have strayed... to Etsy. I know, I know, 6 years late or some such. I have been a hold-out, a nay-sayer for all these years. I was disdainful of the web site clogged with over-priced knitted wares and assorted arts and crafts (not my thing, no offense) but as of late I find myself scrolling through the expansive vintage selection for HOURS! My last post was a symptom of an addiction. There is so much to see! I come late to all good things, it's just the way I roll.

So I have my eye on some of the good stuff in the ESSENTIAL VINTAGE CATEGORIES.

1. Fall Bags!

I need an appropriately hippie, autumnal, patchwork, vintage purse.
Need I say!

Which one says you?

2. Cocktail rings!

4. Pendants!

5. Feather theme! For fun.

Also on my radar:
fall-ready dresses!
vintage oxfords!
victorian blouses!
the perfect native american pouch necklace!
and whimsical vintage hats that can fit my giant head (hair?!)

While I am lusting for all things of this world, don't forget to check the Magnolia Family Vintage Store right now! We added some great stuff this week in ALL SIZES. I wouldn't miss it if I were you...


Seacrest OUT. xoxo

Okay, I just "rediscovered" your blog through Tolly, I'm pretty sure, and am entranced. I read all the way back to your haircut post and am in LOVE with your haircut. It is SO 80's glam. It suits you perfectly and makes your eyes pop!

Hey there -- Tiffany here. I was wondering if you have an e-mail address I could contact you at or if you would be interested in doing an interview for my blog. I wanna do a 5 or so series on clothing companies / fashion retailers who sell online and that kind of thing. Plus, you're a blogger that is awesome.

Let me know -- tiffanydiane@gmail.com
