Caution! Pinterest is HIGHLY ADDICTIVE!

Silk blouse: Thrifted
Cut-off shorts: Ancient history
Over-the-knee socks: Sockdreams
Obvious Chloe knock-off wooden heel oxfords: Jeffrey Campbell

 Pay no attention to the GIGANTIC hankie hanging out of my pocket. Allergies have been awful this year! I normally don't have them too bad, just the occasional sneeze in reaction to miscellaneous pollens and dusty attics. But this year, I've been a watery eyed mess! 


Also: A word  about Pinterest!

A few people have asked me recently if I'm sponsored by Pinterest. Ha! I wish! 
I just really love the site and I wish more people would use it. It's a social bookmarking site, like Digg or Reddit, but instead of just linking websites, blog posts, or stories, you save images -- and then your link is saved via the image. So basically, if you just like saving and sharing inspiration photos, it provides a way to save those, and view other peoples' as a stream. But if the place where you found a particular picture was a blog entry on making your own tea cozies or a top you want to order from ASOS, that bookmark is saved with the image for you to go back to as well. You create "boards" (like a pin-board, get it?) of various themes, like sets on Flickr, to provide as much or as littler rigid categorization of your "pins" as you'd like.

For example, I have a few specific boards, which you can click the following links and see if you're trying to get your head around it. I have one for Clothes, one for Home Decorating and Design, one for Hot and Sexy Stuff, and a totally generalized one for anything and everything that appeals to me. 

If you wanna get really specific, MC has an entire board devoted only to images of women that remind him of me.

Needless to say, I find it addictive and awesome and I highly recommend it. So get on there and check it out. To follow me on Pinterest, click here and hit the big Follow All button on the left. To follow MC (who has remarkably similar and awesome taste in all things vintage and wild), click here and do the same.
