How I'd Wear It.

When it comes up that I'm in to thrifting and vintage, some people say that they can't figure out how to wear old things or put them together. I thought I'd put together some things from seek vintage, because what's more fun than playing with clothes? (Actually, some things, including boys and champagne, are more fun, but that's beside the point.)

blazer, blouse, skirt (coming soon to seek vintage), bag, shoes

blouse, skirt, bag, shoes (coming soon to seek vintage)

dress, Stuart Weitzman shoes (coming soon to seek vintage), pup (not for sale)

I think I'll do posts like this more frequently, so if you see something at seek vintage and are wondering how I'd wear it, email me at or leave a comment, and I'll show you!

A Rainy Tuesday.

I'm bummed to be missing out on Washed Out at Eve Level Art (why am I so stingy about paying more than $15 for things?) tonight, but it does free me up for ladies' beers and bowling. When God closes a door, he opens a window. Amiright?

The Google.

Should I feel accomplishment or fear? I think this is a sign that I have too much of an internet presence. Oh well. I might as well keep going until "sabrina heise international celebrity" shows up. I also think I'm going to Google myself more often.

Seek Vintage updates.

After a bit of a hiatus, seek vintage has some new additions!

? Stuart black leather booties SOLD

The last pair of shoes are something of a mystery. The first part of the brand name is worn off. All that's legible is "Stuart." I've ruled out Stuart Weitzman, because it looks like this Stuart is a last name. They aren't Colin Stuart, because the quality of shoes are much higher (made in Italy, and "vero cucio"). The logo doesn't look like Jill Stuart's, and I'm out of ideas. If anyone knows what brand these shoes might be, I'd love to know!

Last night I wore a black lace skirt and feathers in my hair to celebrate the birthday of a co-worker who makes possibly the most adorable drunk person I've ever seen. We laughed among boys whose clothes were accented with tiny whales and acted silly. Later, gin and tonics were drunk in a half-full bar, while tales of a clandestine romance were unfolded before me. Not a half-bad Friday.

New year, old idea. Frankly, I miss my LiveJournal. I miss just slightly over-sharing and name-dropping and philosophizing and rambling and throwing pity parties and celebrating the small things. I'll never be one of those gals with a dream-like, photogenic life, but I am someone whose garrulousness and awkwardness allows me to take part in some random situations, and I feel like sharing them on a public platform for the time being.

So follow me as I navigate the late-20-something waters with all the dignity and maturity of a 17-year-old.

For example, did I mention the time I joined (last week)? As you, dear reader(s), may or may not know, I am a social networking addict. In my more emo, pre-Facebook days, I was at one time a member of MakeoutClub (I can't believe this still exists) and other such sites. That, combined with my enjoyment of posting flattering pictures of myself  on the internet, and all the stories of people whose best friend's third cousin met the love of their life through an online dating site started getting to me. The idea of being able to be a voyeur into the lives of some of Charleston's single guys was too much to resist. Anyhow, once I joined, I lasted all of four days. I didn't respond to a single email, wink, favorite list, poke, cattle-prod and other such methods of semi-passive-aggressive flirting from random shirtless (and clothed) dudes in the Charleston area.

I give many congratulations to the people who have met the love of their lives online, and I do believe it's possible. I, however, was entertained yet completely weirded out by messages like, "How would you like to spend some time with an Italian Bad Boy???" or three consecutive messages from a 42-year-old with three children...the first two messages detailing his life and childhood, and the third telling me that he was so excited by me (though I hadn't communicated with him in any shape or form) that he sent my picture to his mother and brother. A day later, he wrote again, juuuust to check in.

Upon canceling a membership, makes you choose from a list of reasons why you're leaving.  No matter which selection I chose, I felt like a jerk. One was phrased like: "The selection isn't good enough here. I am looking for perfection." I could almost hear the seeping disdain in that choice.

Here are the selections I wish they offered me:

* Too many Republicans
* Not enough guys who know the difference between your/you're and their/there/they're
* Only solid profile belongs to best friend of someone I sort of dated
* I don't count hunting/four-wheeling as my top activities and would probably be a total bore to most
* I'm too awkward

Needless to say, until there is an online dating site for nerdy yet mildly attractive people who enjoy word games, music, and historical anomalies, I doubt I will foray into the land of online dating again.

However, this will give me tons more time to drink wine and over-share my personal life on my blog, so there's that.

Because I like to occasionally endorse various food and drink products.

I bought these Rold Gold Dark Dipped Bavarian Twists for the first time before Christmas, and am now thoroughly obsessed. I found out after much research that these seem to be limited edition holiday snacks and probably won't be on the shelves much longer. I actually purchased the last two bags at the Belle Hall Harris Teeter. Whoops.

Anyway, if they still have these at your local grocery store, I highly recommend you purchase them. They will CHANGE YOUR LIFE. That's all.

I am officially 27. I'm now going to go to Costco to purchase the biggest jar of eye cream I can find. Just kidding. I'm just getting Botox. Just kidding. I'm just going to eat a cupcake for breakfast. Not kidding.

Here are my 2011 and 27 resolutions:
* cooking/baking
* yoga
* travel
* Seek Vintage-ing
* writing

* complaining
* impulse buying
* nail-biting
* interrupting
* procrastinating
