Vintage 60s Suitcase.

 Dress and cardigan- Forever 21, DIY feather hairpiece, 60s vintage suitcase

 I bought this Vintage suitcase from a little antique store in San Luis today. 
It's a child's suitcase, but I think its perfect for toting around a few items. It will be great for when I leave for Spring break. Oh yeah.. I forgot to tell you all! 
I'm going to my beach house in Fort Bragg CA for 10 days over Spring Break. I wont be posting anything when I'm gone, but I will have SO MANY photos to show you all when I'm home!
also, Thank you to all my new followers!
Please leave your comments so I can go see all your blogs!

DIY feather extension.

I recently said that, If I was a man, I would want to be Julian Casablancas.
if you don't already know, Julian is the very.. VERY attractive lead singer from
the band, The Strokes.
In this video, Julian has an amazing feather hair piece that inspired me to make one of my own.. and do a Julian lookalike shoot.

What I used-
1. Big, natural feathers
2. Thin black ribbon
3. Hair clip
4. Scissors
The finished product-


Yep. I still want to be him.

The versatile blogger

 Skirt- DIY, Cardigan- H&M, Velvet top- Material Girl, Velvet hair bow- Vintage

I recently was given the title and award of the "Versatile blogger" by the gorgeous, Cayce from Madame Joy! This award comes with two requirements; I must share interesting 7 facts about myself and pass the award along to a few other blogs that inspire me! So here it goes!

1. My mother is from Racife Brazil.

2. I have an adorable pygmy goat named, Brownie. 
I've had him since I was 8.

3. I write a lot of intensely descriptive notes so I can remember certain moments in my life.

4. I have a deep, partly unrealized need to travel to Alaska.

5. My favorite year is 1965.

6. I love to be alone in a church. The architecture fascinates me

7. I'm an Art history major. 
And if everything in my life falls through, I'm opening up a gallery.

Here are some the blogs that I believe are also versatile-
Crimson Rosella
The Moptop
Who the Fuck is Mick Jagger

Sun Traveler

Sun sun sun.
 Denim shirt-Walmart $7, shorts-forever 21, bow tights- best friend, urban heels

Canada Roadtrip 2011- Part one

So I have this best friend, named Stephanie. She is a wise, talented(as you can see by my lovely header!) babe of a lady who I couldn't live without. Our friendship has just one problem... I live in California ..and she lives in Canada.
But this summer my other best friend, Bibbles and I are embarking on a great adventure to BC; A road trip. We calculated that it will take 36 hours of driving on over 1,200 miles to get there.
But it's so worth it.

Here's our route-

                          We are purely staying only at super tacky, 50s motels on our trip!
Here are the motels we will be hitting up along the way!

The Stardust Motel in Redding CA
The Palms Motel in Portland OR

Vancouver to Victoria

The Marco Polo Motel in Seattle WA
The Rose City Motel Roseburg OR
                                                 The Surf Motel San Francisco CA


But now I need all of your help you natives out there! 
Anyone from any of these towns willing to share some great places to eat, stop off at, or avoid?
Let me know!
