This past week my boyfriend, Brandon, got crazy news that he is the new drummer of the band Doyle (guitar player from The Misfits). His first show was Wednesday at the Whisky a Go Go and this is what I wore. I always find it funny when I go to punk rock/metal shows and I’m the only one wearing color. The looks I receive are pretty priceless…

Global Vintage: Austin, Texas
April 10th, 2015 by Emily Vallely

Last month I went to Austin for a day while I was visiting Brandon’s family in Dallas, I wrote an extensive blog post about my trip if you are interested! I was slightly overwhelmed by all the amazing stores on South Congress. My one small complaint is that every store was slightly pricey, so I ended only buying one dress which is actually in yesterday’s outfit post. There was TONS of great, authentic vintage though, so if you go with a semi larger budget than I did you can find some really great pieces!

The dress I bought is actually from this store, Leighelena. They had some really great priced dresses, the one I bought was only $10!

Uncommon Objects was by far the coolest shop I went to on my whole trip. It’s almost like a museum of creepy, amazing, antiques. If you only go one place in Austin, this is the place to check out!

The Gypsy Wagon sells new/trendier items, so if vintage isn’t for you definitely check them out.

Blackmail is a very high end boutique carrying new clothing. I really loved the aesthetic of this shop. It was very fashionable goth, think Kat Von D style. I was in love, but unfortunately could not afford anything.

Gypsies Antiques was one of the two shops I visited not located on South Congress. I’m so happy I visited this amazing place because it actually had two amazing vintage showrooms in the back (photos below). Bloomers and Frocks has an amazing collection of 50′s and 60′s cocktail/party dresses and Ledbelly has a to die for selection of vintage wedding dresses and accessories.

Last stop of the day was the Austin Antique Mall. Unfortunately, we got their 10 minutes before they closed so I had to rush my way through the large mall without seeing too much. I probably could have spent hours in this place!

Changing Seasons
April 9th, 2015 by Emily Vallely

Almost everyone knows that seasons don’t change much in California, but I can always feel it in the air. Spring is my favorite, spring has always brought new and amazing things to my life and I’m sure this year will be no different. Thanks so much to everyone who has supported our blog over the last 5 years (yes, this is our fifth year)! We have tons of amazing content coming your way!
