On My Mind

Photos via fashiongonerogue for NY Times Style 2009

I leave Friday for 2 weeks of vacation and that's all I can think about right now!
Madrid, Ibiza, Rome and Santorini.
The beautiful photos above were taken on the Greek Island of Patmos, and I will be traveling to the Greek Island of Santorini as one of my stops.

I am thrilled to be visiting Santorini!!! I hear the island is beautiful, the food is amazing and most of my pictures will look like the photos above (or so I hope).

To Jumper or Not to Jumper?

Rachel Roy Bubble Sleeve Jumper

Rachel Roy Strapless Jumper

Big Bow Romper at faduncan

Hunter Jump at BrunoPolo

So I have recently been fascinated by jumpers, mostly the pants, but not sure if I can pull off the look?
 I'm really loving both of the Rachel Roy jumpers, oh and her shoes are fantastic
 I have found an emerald green color jumper pants, there cotton and the legs are wide and flowy, but I think I may be to tall for them, maybe for someone who is 2 inches shorter than I am, because they look sort of high water on me.
Would you wear jumper pants?

set found here baublesbeads

Black Glass Bead via RamonasCluter

White Dress via VivaLaVintageShoppe

Dolores Del Rio, SO GLAM, 1940 OLD HOLLYWOOD! I LOVE.

Oh and My ETSY review on a purchase.
So I recently bought this very cool, striped shirt for my husband. I sell on etsy and buy on etsy, good way to support etsians. So my package arrives and it is fantastic! I'm not talking about the shirt, the shirt was great, but the PACKAGING! Outstanding!
Great customer service and no one takes the time now a days to do something like that. I don't even want to throw the envelope away!!! So if you have time checkout this etsy seller ToatsMcgoats and read his profile!
 I think this dude is about 18, and what a great start on his business. And I hope maybe one day we can meet, since he lives a few hours away and go on a thrifting adventure.

All these pieces are magnificent! They each have a retro, mod kind of vibe to them.
 Click on the link above to checkout some more lovely MJ Resort fashion.
I would wear all these pieces! I actually recently found a navy blue mini with long sleeves, that I can't wait to wear this fall.  Just looking on ETSY, there are so many possibilities! Do you like the mod look?

Day Trip Thrifting Adventures

One day road trip.
Texas Highways.
7 Thrift stores to be explored.
Yummmmy Food.
Good conversation.
A small town with old art deco buildings.(swoon)
A HOT summer Texas day, was my day yesterday.

I visited Beaumont, Texas, yesterday with my Amiga Ivania. (she sells on Ebay)
Funny though, we didn't come out with as many treasures as we thought we would. Still good finds.
Ivania scored tons of AWESOME belts, and I came out with some FUN shoes!
Not to lucky on clothes, but a lady always needs accessories!

Our road trip to Beaumont was just to thrift and we did just that!
We plan on going back to explore the cute, quaint small town.

Here are some pictures I took with my cell phone
This was at Rao's Bakery...we just got coffee here.
Ivania did spot some empanadas, which she said might have been banana! *Drool

That's Ivania holding the John Travolta record.
Love the hair glow!
This was at IZ resale. It was a mix of new, vintage & costumes.

Lunch! We ate at Zydeco's. 
I had the chicken & sausage creole, garlic mashed potatoes, green beans,
jalapeno cornbread and Community Sweet tea.
(Beaumont is a few hours from the Louisiana border so you have some great Cajun food)

These are some of the shoes I got. Heels and clogs.
I will these up in the store this coming week.

This weekend I am having a garage sale to get rid of a bunch of old clothes and housewares we don't need.
It's nice to de-clutter, especially when I'm constantly bringing new things home every week.
What are your plans this weekend?
