back it up!

A good long while ago - (and I mean it) the super awesome amazing way too incredible for words Tara sent me a little box my way...
The box was wrapped in a NYC subway map and brought me two new favorite things!



Sometimes I think Tara and I are cosmically connected - and in the case of this bag, it's so true. The colors are perfect, and fit in with the new found interest in wearing only pinks! It's definitely an autumn bag, but I couldn't wait to wear it - so I paired it with one of my favorite dresses for a wedding shower I went to a few weekends ago.



(PS I spy a jokester boyfriend who thinks he's a funny one... see what I mean?)

She also sent a feather headband I'm wearing right now! The little package she sent made me 24380834x more excited to hang with her at Renegade this past weekend! Saturday was a funny day though. For the first half, it was humid and in the nineties (I do not function normally when it's like this!!) the second half rained like cats and dogs.

I was at Renegade for the hot/humid part, but despite the melted popsicle feeling - it was great! I have so many great business cards and it was nice to be able to put faces to etsy shoppes! We went to Roebling Tea Room for lunch, and as we were walking to the subway - little drops started falling from the sky. We made it into Manhattan, and when we got out of the train station in Union Square the skies OPENED up. We stumbled into the nearest door to take shelter from the rain and it just so happened to be a two story Forever 21. The biggest and worst Forever 21 I've ever been in... That place was trashed and filled with bad stretch cotton dresses and tee shirts. But, once the rain let up a bit, we purchased one of those big golf umbrellas and headed for Fanny's. It took an hour to walk there... three of us squeezed under that umbrella... by the time we finally got to Fanny's we were all pretty soaked and burnt out on New York. I did end up finding a pair of glasses that I'll be converting to sunglasses tomorrow, but the lense-less version will be popping up in some etsy/ebay photos to come!

Yes, I just went to that Forever 21last week and I was thinking the same thing - it was all terrible bubble dresses with no waists - I'm waiting for the good stuff to come back in style! :)
