Just a quick post to share some recent vintage purchases with you. I know I am not supposed to be shopping, but I can't pass up a good deal!
The first two are from a repair lot I won on ebay for only $11!
This dress just needed a hem repair and repair at a few other seems.

This is terrible, but I never shared with you all what I did on the 4th of July! I figured I must do this before it becomes August! The saddest part is that it really was a fun day and I have really been meaning to post about it. So here we go...
On 4th of July we went to The Redwood for Brunch Americana. There was a fantastic line-up set to celebrate independence day: The Side-Wynders, Chris "Sugarballs" Sprague and His 18 Wheelers, and the Dave and Deke Combo.
The Side-Wynders were the opening band. They had Carlitos on washboard for the show-extra special! It has been too long since I last saw them (since their bass player moved to Las Vegas), so this was a real treat.

About Viva Las Vegas.
Did you book your room yet? I hope so, because The Orleans sold out weeks ago. I must have mentioned this before, but it is worth saying again. To do VLV right, you have to stay at the host hotel, The Orleans. In order to stay there you basically have to book a year in advance. So, if you are a bad little socialite and didn't book your hotel yet, get on the waiting list now.

A few weeks ago a friend contacted me and asked if I wanted to shoot with a photographer that was working on his profile. I didn't know the photographer, and hadn't seen much of his work, but I figured-what the hell, why not? I mostly wanted to try a new hair and makeup style. The first few sets were just okay because the lighting was not cooperating, but the outdoor ones are much better. Not really the best way to spend a whole Sunday in my opinion, but at least I got a few good pics out of it. So, what do you think?
