Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (Viva East 2019)


WOW. Just WOW. I don't even know if this post will be coherent or will be anything other than me gushing over all the amazing ladies I got to meet last weekend at the Viva East Rockabilly Weekender 2019.

Mine Again (Bernie Dexter)


This dress used to be mine. Then it wasn't. And now it is again! Yep, this is another tale of a dress worn years ago when I was a size small then sold when it no longer fit. If you missed my earlier blog post about the importance of body positivity and how buying a dress in a larger size MEANS NOTHING WHATSOEVER, catch it here.


I snagged this on the Buy/Sell/Trade groups recently (even though I have not bought a single dress since April due to the whole buying-a-house thing we're doing) because it was one of my favorites, but also because it was my FIRST vintage repro dress.

Disconnected (Getaway House Boston)


Since March, Cody has been in boot camp to prepare to test for his black belt in Krav Maga. That meant that on top of going to class 2-3 times a week, he also went to a 3 hour boot camp every Friday night, coming home exhausted and drenched in sweat. He had 2 pre-tests this spring and then on June 1, he had his final official black belt test, which lasted over 4 hours and was the most physically and challenging afternoon he has ever conquered. It was challenging to watch as well! Especially the final hour when I knew he was having trouble with his muscles cramping up on him.

Spoonful of Sugar (Anthropologie)


Full disclosure: these photos are not recent! But it seems as though my spending ban has caught up to me and well, I just don't have anything left in queue to share! If all goes well, Cody and I close on our new house at the end of this month so as you can imagine, we're trying not to touch our wallets if we can avoid it for the next few weeks!

The Shift of Summer (My Bubbie's Shift Dress)


Growing up, I always wanted my parents' and grandparents' clothes. The problem was no one ever kept anything! I had a handful of some old band t-shirts from my dad's teenage years but my mother kept nearly nothing from her teenage years.


It is because of this that I struggle to get rid of clothes myself - what if my future daughter wants them? Well, let's hope she wants clothes styled like the 50s and 60s and not the 2010s because I don't dress to the time at all!

In My Happy Place (Happy Place Popup in Boston)


Now that it's getting warmer (though it is doing so very, very, VERY slowly), I can't wait to start taking more day trips and adventures with Cody and our friends. As you may recall from previous posts, we are always down to check out something funky with my girl, Jen, and her husband, Dave.


When I heard that Happy Place was coming to Boston this month, I immediately texted them to see if they'd want to check it out with me. If you've never heard of Happy Place, here's some more information on the fun pop up experience, according to their website.

What's Sara Reading? Forget About It


What are friends for if not buying dresses from each other?


When my boo, Anna, recently decided to sell some of her previously loved Bernie Dexter dresses, I knew she'd probably be getting rid of at least one or two that I am missing from my collection. Lo and behold, she shared her green gingham Kelly dress as one getting the boot and I decided to take it off her hands.
