VINTAGE HEAVEN

Today my friend and I went on a search for a birthday dress. Now I did not find it but going into this one store more then made up that I didn't find it. Here is my day in pretty pictures.





This is vintage pink
2500 SE Hawthorne Boulevard
Portland, OR 97214

If you live in the Portland area GO... not now they are closed but when they open at 10am GO. If not drive take a road trip and spend all day inside dressing up looking at old playboys sit on awesome vintage 70's furniture. I took some pictures I wasn't sure on their policy for indoor pictures.




The building alone sold me that I had to go inside.
















classy



Now for my finds.
vintage diane von furstenberg lace up shoes.

( I nearly died when I saw these it made my day especially when I saw they were only $22





my lovely old man sweater I love old sweaters like this.







Im so happy with my finds today. I plan on going back and just dedicating a day in that store. Going through every piece of vinyl and knick nack I was kind of on a time crunch. The people there are so nice I loved the little old lady who worked there. I told her I loved the store so much I want to live in it. She laughed and said I was the third person who has said that today. So SERIOUSLY check out pink vintage on hawthorne.

Later that evening I met up with two of my best friends from elementary school I went to school with them from kindergarten through fifth grade. I hadn't seen my own friend Kelly in twelve years I can't believe it has even been that long it certainly doesn't feel it. It felt like just yesterday I was going to school sock hops, holiday bazaar ( that's when my love for crafts was born), and wearing daisy kingdom dresses with salt water sandals. We went though EVERY YEARBOOK all five years the hair the clothes oh my. So much catching up was had I feel like we took over right where we left off it doesn't feel like its been this long. So much has changed my friends are married or getting married having kids. Its crazy but I needed that today more then ever this will defiantly be the start of many get togethers. Where would we be without facebook I wouldn't of been able to find them with out it. And now some funny pictures from today that i scanned.












I also want this car




I hope everyone had a great weekend. I must get my beauty rest it certainly does not feel like it's almost 1am I hope to wake up to snow covered roof tops tomorrow. It's supposed to snow this coming week. I just want to curl up in my cosy grandpa sweater, leggings and house boots. *fingers crossed*
