dressed up like a lady: Meet me in the bathroom, that's what she said.

Apr 8, 2010

Meet me in the bathroom, that's what she said.

If this maroon wall looks like a just about perfect background for a blog pic, you can thank the purely awesome Anya at Zingerman's Coffee Company for so stylishly painting the bathroom this way. While you're at it, you can also thank her for being a fountain of smart conversation, sweet disposition, and of course, ambrosial caffeinated beverages. That girl makes our morning just about every day.

Okay, my squee of the day is this vintage charm bracelet -- featuring a string of tiny people all doing The Twist!

I LOVE thinking of how of-the-moment this bauble was in the early 1960's, but what I love even more is thinking how it probably seemed dated and square just 10 years later, when the dance craze was over. Thank goodness it survived long enough to go from passé to kitsch.

  6. You are looking fierce as always! Those heels are amazing and so is that bracelet! I used to have a little pin of a skanky outfit (booty shorts and crop top) and the bottom of the pin shook when I walked so it looked like headless outfit girl was dancing! It was my favorite pin, even if I'm not explaining it well right here.
