Being a stay-at-home Mom for the past 3 years really taught me how to spend on a tight budget. Now that I have a job again I keep forgetting I have paychecks since they're direct deposit. I also spend little money since Joel's our sole provider. So I haven't checked in like 2 months but I did today....and baby, mama bought herself a new pair of shoes!! I'm DYING to tweak them with some studs across the front or add laces. IDK?? I just hope they look cute with a pair of  lace ruffle socks!

I love your blog - and it is because you are such a real person. It is so refreshing to see someone who blogs because they love it, and hasn't become all corporate and shit. You say what you want, and don't give a fuck what anyone thinks! yay!

P.S. were you one point a part of the "delightful dozen" blogging clique or whatever it was called?

Kara: were you one point a part of the "delightful dozen" blogging clique or whatever it was called?

Awwww thank you for speaking the truth! <3 <3 And yes I was part of DD but I've come to realize I'm more of a loner and like to do me. It's hard for me to keep up with what other people are doing. But it was fun at the time and they were all really nice ladies!

Hi Vintage Virgin!

I hope you enjoy NYC! I love all of your pics and my friend and I wanted to know if you have ever modelled or acted before? Because you look like a model or actress. Trust me this is not a sleazy pick up line and I'm a straight chick! LOL LOL

I think you look great in all of your pics and you've found some really great vintage finds in most of them! Have you ever been to London?

I've lived in both the UK and the US, and I'm in London for now and the shopping is off the hook. I don't mean designer shopping, I mean everyday shopping. Come over here and check it all out. Although, there's always internet shopping! LOL

Have you ever seen the All Saints website?
