a penny for your thoughts

Happy Monday kids!
I spent my Sunday searching out new vintage stores downtown. It's one of those things I've been meaning to do forever, but something always gets in the way (sleep, sunshine, traffic...LA things). After a few sartorial blunders in the form of unnecessary sequin kimonos, and a few misguided impulse buys, I made it out alive with a few swing coats and a pretty 60's shift. I finished off the trip with a celebratory street cart taco. Success.

Did you have a good weekend?

Please check out my Glitter Guide feature! Thanks.
