Throwback Thursday: Vintage Gold Earrings

A month ago, BF and I were in LA, so we decided to check out the Los Feliz/ Silver Lake area, rated the #1 hipster hood in the US.  After brunch on the patio, we strolled up and down the streets and stumbled across Co-op 28 Handmade, a store with a cool collection of vintage digs and décor in the back.  I spotted these gold drop earrings, made eye contact with them, and the rest was history.  Love at first sight!  To me, shopping is all about gut.  You either get a feeling, or you don’t.  I can’t stand going shopping with friends that are too indecisive.  Drives me insane!  Anyway, back to the earrings.  Here they are paired with one of my favorite dresses from H&M with gold buttons.  Oh, and my new black suede Ash booties that are hot hot hot!

Throwback Thursday: Don’t you wanna Fanta?

Last week’s Mickey Mouse throwback got such a great response, so I thought I’d throw out another….Orange Fanta.  Remember when this soda was so hot in the 80’s and early 90’s?    Before society got wind that soda’s were evil and banned them from schools?  I never really liked the artificial taste of orange soda, but I totally dug the electrifying color.  Insert Fanta tee (below).

Throwback Thursday: Mickey Mouse Rules

In honor of Throwback Thursday, I’m giving a nod to my ole pal Mickey Mouse.  Ah, yeah!

When I was kid, I won a Mickey Mouse plush doll at Disneyland, but my mom gave it to my cousin in Taiwan since she was obsessed with Mickey and never had a chance to go to the park.  I was crushed, but sucked it up since I was a nice kid.  So, when I was Urban Outfitters a few years back and spotted this tee from a distance, it was like it was meant to be.   It’s like Mickey Mouse meets psychedelic, rock and roll. To complete the vintage look, I even threw on some Van’s.  I’m not trying to perpetuate the stereotype that all Asians  throw up peace signs when taking photos, but I kind of am.  I am embracing it and  just having fun with it.  How can you not?  It’s Mickey!

NOTE:  It’s really hard to wink gracefully.  Here’s my best attempt at it.
