Rainy Day Skirt from Tatyana

Well, gee whiz, see you later, May! It was nice knowing you - for the whole 2 seconds it feels like we had you here. MAN! Maybe it's because of my epic travel schedule of April and May, but is anyone else freaking out over how quick 2016 has passed so far?

Tomorrow is June, for crying out loud! What is THAT about?

Pinup Girl Clothing Maria Dress & the New Purple Robbie BAITs!

Do you believe in fate? As in, things happening for a reason? Coincidences don't exist and all that jazz?

I certainly do - and I have a story to prove it to you, my friends!

See this Pinup Girl Clothing Maria dress? Good.

Throwback 80's Special: Tegan & Sara "U-Turn" Inspired Outfit

I thought it was time for something a bit different on the blog - it's time for a totally 80's throwback post!

Here's a little unknown fact about me: in high school, I was all about the 80's. I know today I am a retro housewife with a modern pinup twist, but back in my teens, I just wanted to be Pat Benatar and Bruce Springsteen's spawn. I loved fishnets, big dangly earrings, brightly colored tights, torn denim, boots, Converse, hounds tooth, and all kinds of clashing patterns. I even wore finger less gloves and rocked some colorful hats! Oh if only I could find you some pictures...

The Annie Dress by Dolly & Dotty

Lately, I've been seeing Dolly and Dotty everywhere - and on everyone! The more I spotted my fellow blogger gals in a Dolly and Dotty dress, the more I my wishlist grew. So you can imagine how tickled pink I was when they reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in a collaboration. I don't think I waited more than a nano-second before I replied with an excited "YES!"

Tatyana Strawberry Pie Skirt

Ahoy from my parents' backyard! I wore this outfit back home for Mother's Day and forced my sister, Emma, to snap some pictures for me in the damp grass. She was in flip flops. Ah well, it's the price you gotta pay sometimes! She dealt with it and managed to snap some good ones so all is well!

Bernie Dexter BBQ Skirt in The Las Vegas Neon Boneyard

BOOM! With that, my whirlwind of shows and travel has come to and end...until June, anyway! Until then, I am staying put at home and definitely getting some R&R. In fact, starting tomorrow, I have a few days off to visit The Brimfield Show and do a whole lot of nothing.

Feelin' Like Spring: Hearts & Roses

And just like that, ladies and gents, it's May. Happy May, everyone! May the Spring weather begin! Yeah, sure, it's been "Spring" for a couple months now but that's just according to the calendar. New England is a bit delayed. Spring has only just started here.

Actually, it hardly seems like it's Spring with days still hitting as low as 40 degrees F. But hey, I mean, someday soon it will start to look, feel, and smell like Spring, right?
