Gosh has it really been 2 weeks since my last post? I'm so caught up in work and trying to find a new place, and trying to buy a cheap car...

(Please click on this pic for's too dark to see if you don't!)

But enought about me. Here's a handmade ...40s? dress I found at a local scenester consignment shop. I am having a really hard time dating this dress-it's made out of such a fine feedsack cotton that I'm afraid it will melt if I try to wash it, but it has a zipper, but the length is too long to be 50s, but the sweep of the skirt is too wide to be 30s...we'll just leave it at the 40s for now and be happy.

Here is a close up on the pattern and the hand-done pintucking. Unreal!

Extra for Experts: Don't forget to peep at my Etsy for all my readers! (All 8 of you)

Things I Didn't Even Know I Wanted

-I saw a girl on Friday night at Wal-Mart (don't judge me) with beautiful, soft, matte waves that flowed across her skull like a font of silken beauty. If she hadn't looked like a bitch, I would have asked her what hair products she used. I think I found it, though:

It hits all the rich girl pointers: it's exclusive to Sephora, it is prohibitively expensive, and yep, gives you matte waves. Now if I can only pony up $24 for this stuff.

I'm a sucker for names; if you call your ebay listing NANCY SINATRA DOLLY TWEE DEPRESSION NEW WAVE DRESS I am 75% more likely to bid on it, even if you're only selling a toilet scrubber.

So these Nars nail polishes are really hitting me in the caveman part of my brain; with names like Arabesque, Pussy Galore (ouch) and Schiap, they are impossible to resist.

In my mad search for mattening hair products (and most of the mattes seem to be waxes, ni goed ni), I found this website full of Camellia oil hair treatments, baby food, and these bizarre hair dyes, which come in colors like Cinnamon Milk Tea and Jewelry Pink. I have always wanted pink hair (but subtle, not shocking), and for $8.99, how can you lose? Well I guess you can lose by not being fluent in Japanese and not having any idea of how to apply or for how long. But I think if you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much room.

Which leads me to my last and final covetable; Today on Luxirare, she featured a pair of thigh-high stockings with back zips, and I felt the proverbial apple fall on my head-I could cobble my own Margiela boots, and make them flats so I need not totter around on a pair of nails! And for considerable less expense!

Oneandahalf-What to Buy?

Today on Style Bubble, Susie talked about the new clothing line Oneandahalf, and the simple shapes and mostly black color choice piqued my interest. The clothes are so inexpensive, and look so nice, it's hard to decide what to choose!

Zip-crotch pants, $37 (That's like a tenth of those Alexander Wang [or whoever made them, I cba to remember] pants!)

Dress with draped armhole, $27

Detachable blazer, $55. The sleeves detach! DEMASIADO!

Or if you prefer, detachable shirtdress for $55, unreal.

This is the Reebok Top Down. It looks old, but it isn't. It looks like a boy's shoe, but it isn't that either. You can fold them down to look like regular old low top sneaks or leave them high with skinny jeans tucked in to get the New Edition look we all crave. The canvas ones are around $50 some odd dollars, the leather ones pictured here are a bit more.
