This dress from Prairie Underground always reminds me of our trip to Bodie, California in the summer of 2010. Maybe some ghosts snuck into the fabric. In the above photo I’m wearing the dress with crazy geometric tights from Anthropologie and Marc by Marc Jacobs rubber boots. In the Bodie photos I’m wearing it with some old biker boots that I’ve since given away.



One of my January goals is to set up a better spot for what I’m wearing photos but it’s not done yet so here’s a favorite outfit from December!

Wearing: Gap kids jean jacket, JCrew sequined top layered over a grey tank dress from Forever 21, Marc by Marc Jacobs fingerless gloves, Black Milk map leggings and shoes from Anthropologie.

Wearing a dress and sweater from Target, Anthropologie cardigan, Black Milk pink galaxy leggings and Marc by Marc Jacobs rubber boots.


My mother in law is so very generous and has bought me some beautiful things from Hidden Treasures in Topanga Canyon, California. She brought me the dress below when she visited on Easter weekend. I costumed it up quite a bit on the first wear but I think I'll do something cleaner and more simple next time I wear it. It was really cold outside!

I love Sock Dreams and was compelled to head out to their brick and mortar store last Saturday. And on Sunday I wore these beautiful new tights. Here are my photos:

This one is a one of a kind dress by Bonnie Heart Clyde, a local designer in Portland. It' a vintage linen piece with an embroidered tree-woman and flowers.

I first saw this dress in the Anthropologie catalog last fall and then when I saw it in person in the store I didn't touch it! You see I wanted it so bad and I didn't want to love it. The next time I visited the store it was on sale! So I grabbed my size and ran to the dressing room. Love! Here I am on the beach in my pretty dress with black socks and boots and iin the black and white I've got on black tights and Melissa wedges.

Birthday plans for Thursday February 12. May have to do some of this on Valentine's Day cause the list is too long!

*Pie – to look at vegan footwear.
*Sephora – to smell perfumes.
*Blossoming Lotus – to eat raw vegan food.
*Yummy Tummy – for more raw vegan food.
*Free People – to try on pretty clothes in their equally pretty dressing rooms.
*Seaplane – cause it's next to Free People. Clothes are really expensive here but handmade and gorgeous to admire.
*Anthropologie – love it and I've got a gift card. Thanks Toni and Michael!
*Urban Outfitters – I love their new heart shaped mixing bowls.
*boot camp at the gym – cause I like to sweat and it's my birthday.
*Stella McCartney for Adidas – oh, yeah there's no where to buy it in Portland. blech.
*Lululemon – love this store too. Best pants and jackets to work out in even if their design turnover is way too fast for my taste.
*Yoga class – a nice way to start the day. If I don't go to a class I'll at least spend some time when I wake up doing sun salutations and more.
*Laurelhurst Park – for a walk if it's not too cold.
*Sock Dreams – duh!
*Xtabay – because it's fun to look.

If you could pick a cartoon world to live in, which would it be?  Why?
Submitted by Scio, Scio.

how about the cartoon sequence in the 1980 film, xanadu. this way i could become a fairy, a bird and a fish.

clothes: tops i've worn lately, my owl tank, fruit stripes top from anthropologie, it must be love tee by amy tangerine, pink angel tee from urban outfitters, greyish v-neck tee from old navy… i'm sure i'll think of more later.
