i wish to pose a question.

A completely irrelevant question. If you had $50 to spend on American Eagle Outfitters, what would you buy? You may or may not know that I am a strong believer in not spending more than $30 on any one item. But, the other day, a gift card fell out of the sky. Kind of.

They inducted me into this survey thing, u.talk.back, and when you work up a certain amount of points, they give you giftcards. American Eagle, magazine subscriptions (nothing really good like Vogue or anything), Gamestop, etc.

Sorry if this post has turned into a giant add. But according to my mother, that's all my blog is. Oh well! So, after a few years of taking numerous mind-numbing surveys, i had enough points for a $50 ae giftcard. And i'm stuck. Help.

If you could buy any item/combination of items from them for under $50, what would it be, dear friends? Leaning towards these items:

Also, i might be having some street fashion posts later.. I'm in a college town for Thanksgiving, maybe i'll find something interesting.



family photos

I dug these up out of some old family albums... The first one is circa 90's, but the rest are 60's-70's. Even though I'm partial to the 20's, I still love looking at the clothing from the "olden days". Oh dear god, and look at the hair! Hah, I found beehives galore in the albums. Maybe these will inspire you to go a little retro this weekend.

My favorite has to be the one with the azaleas. It's just gorgeous, isn't it? Looks like something from out of a movie or an old photo shoot. It's that kind of candidly pretty picture.

In case you haven't noticed, the blog got a makeover. I finally had some time to work on it and now i think it's actually presentable! I'm happy with it. The background for the banner is the cover of one of the vintage photo albums. How i love florals ♥

Expect a few DIYs later this weekend... Today I have the day off, so I have some free time to slack off and have fun with some shiny new things from Jo-Ann's.
