Boots for baby

I just found these amazing boots and shoes by Caterpillar Vintage. They are new to me and of course I can only find them in the UK. They are definitely Potsch's old workman style. More and more he is styling himself after a 1930's depression Man. Interesting. Some how he is making poor and desperate look hot and sexy. Anyway, I am going to you, lovely readers, for help - where can i find these kicks?
Caterpillar Vintage Cat Clyde Pea - These are my favs. (above)

It's Ok My Dear

I am obsessed! It's Ok My Dear not only has adorable headbands and collars but her photos and styling are to die for. This is definitely a link to leave as a sweet hint for a gift for you!
And if anyone is looking to get me a gift I will take the cat ears of course...hehehe.

The Brass Hussy

I know it's not much but this necklace from Brass Hussy made me giggle.

P.S. - What the heck is cyber Monday? Has it been around for years or is this the first year and all retailers are acting like it has been around forever so that we think it is a thing?

Me & P in love in Portland!

Here you go! the long awaited engagement photos! Potsch and I are thrilled beyond the moon at the magic Kelty of Steep Street made with us two goof balls. The colors and scenery. i love it all. Engagement shots were never something I thought I would have. They seemed so old school and not in the cool way. Now, I will beg every couple and family and best friend group to get their photos taken. So much fun and what a great way to remember this time in ones life.









We had such a great time with Kelty and her sister Hanah, that we are having them come to L.A. to shoot our wedding too!!!! So much excitement y'all.

Check out this link to see the awesome stop action Kelty made of me and P locking!

Pounds and Personality

I have been a "girl of size" my whole life. It was a rough way to grow up but kids can be mean and I figure we all got made fun at some point. But I will tell you this - as much as I love the 50's and 60's you better believe I am super duper thankful to not have grown up during "Chubbette's".
Come to think of it maybe that kinda stuff was around when I was kid but I just had a mom who did not subscribe to such lameness.
Still, it makes me laugh. "Chubettes". Now a days that would be a totally rad girl band.
I do wish I could get a copy of that helpful parenting pamphlet "Pounds and Personality". Also a great band name.

click on the images to read.




Tracy Harper is not a Chubbette. She gets her "fashionable chubby-size" at Sears.

My question is this - if plus size ladies have been around for this long why is it still hard to find fashionably trendy clothing that is not just hip for a secretary or goth? When I was in London there were plenty of cool in style clothes for the full figured girl. It was like heaven. Equality.

The Holidays are truely upon us

Potsch and I went to trader joe's this evening and I immidiately ran
over to get my free tiny cup of coffee. I fixed it. I sipped it. My
eyes popped and jaw dropped in excitement!!! Trader Joe's Wintery
Blend is here!!!
I am still enjoying my brilliant Stumptown House Blend but a seasonal
switch may definitely be happening.
Incase you have not had the Wintry Blend before let me entice you with
this; a warm blend of medium dark roast beans combined with cinnamon,
cloves and red and green peppercorns. So yummy!

Totally clutch

Chlorine Los Angeles is the premiere seller of refurbished and artfully embellished vintage handbags. They are gorgeous bags! Definitely on the higher price side but when it comes beauty does price really matter? How stunning would some of these be accompanying a gorgeous bride?

Sneak Peek! K+P engagement shoot!

I have it on good authority that we will be getting a bunch of our Steep Street Portland Engagement photos this week!!!! Yeah!!! Potsch and I have been super patient but are definitely chomping on the bit now. Though Potsch and I are both *lookers we definitely wanted the amazing Kelty to do her magic. From what I have seen so far it is way worth the wait!
enjoy!

Tasteful Kitch

"Tasteful kitsch or tongue-in-cheek elegance are two ways of describing Ida Sj√∂stedts design philosophy. Her aim is to create beautiful, sexy clothes for women who don’t take dressing up too seriously –and who see fashion as something fun rather than as a must."
I thought some of these dresses could make some seriously dynamite wedding gowns. Definitely unforgettable. But are they too far from traditional? Do you think a brides dress could ruin the mood of the event?
