Tis’ a small collection of the faves that got me through childhood.

Trolls! Trolls! Trolls! In every color.

I could still play with this all day long.

Retractable hair to style. Fave!

I can't bake, but I'm sure I could impress the boyfriend with this baby.

My boy cousins would only play Barbies with me if they could use the New Kids on the Block dolls. Teehee.

Barbies forever.

Itty bitty Polly Pocket (I was an only child, haa)

The inevitable schoolyard game.

I'm still unsure how this became a toy fad, but yes, I had some pogs.

My ultimate childhood toy: SKIP IT!

It’s concluded that my new Blast from the Past series greatly hinders my work productivity– All I want to do is reminisce on how fantastic being a kid was. I could google image search my life away remembering all the cool shit we used to do/have/love. Such a fine line between work and play…

Ta ta for now. Xo.

Since I’m trying oh-so-hard to blog more, I decided to take a few snapshots of fashionistas and fashionistos that strolled through our boutique this past First Friday. I meant to get this post up on Saturday, but in le crazy life (crazy-busy) nothing gets done on time.

Seth sporting a Butter Toast blazer.

Caleb & (I know I know his name) looking hipper than hip.

Jasmine looking pretty, per usual

Awesome boot man.

Awesome boot man & his stylish friends.

The always stylish Bam & plaid coated friend.

Hot & sexy Butter Toast shoppers

Crazy cool phone purse lady.

Eddie & Derrick in all their awesomeness

Robert of Java Magazine & friends. Please note the fantastic handlebar stash.

The drinks started flowing and the photo taking came to a halt. This weekend was full of fun fashion, this is just a glimpse of how hot downtown Phoenix can be.

Yes, I’m behind on blogging. And yes, there will be another installment of Blast from the past tomorrow ❤

At the beginning of the month I celebrated my one-year (dating) anniversary with my more than amazing boyfriend, Brad. He had mentioned staying at a unique place in Southern Arizona that he once passed through knowing I would love it for its vintage charm. I was more than thrilled to check it out. We ended up at the most amazing boutique motel Arizona has to offer, The Shady Dell. It was a complete vintage paradise, and such a memorable experience. Every thing about this place, down to every detail and hidden surprise, was incredible. Located in Bisbee, Arizona, The Shady Dell lets you experience the 1950’s in full technicolor. It is a collection of vintage travel trailers, perfectly restored to combine mid-century Americana kitsch with the comforts of home in a way that only the 1950’s were capable of.

We had the opportunity to stay inside the “Tiki Bus”, such a good choice!

Every detail about this place was so perfect. The soundtrack: classic 50’s music and vintage commericals. Plus hidden treasures everywhere. The drawers were filled with vintage photos, vintage games, vintage cookware, vintage records, vintage magazines and even vintage coozies, as seen on my beer to the right:

And we cant forget about my favorite little vintage cup:

We had a ton of fun playing croquet in the courtyard, playing on vintage trucks, AND the little row-boat on the side of the Tiki Bus:

AND we played dolls and got a little ridiculous with our tiki dashboard accessories. She is such a little floozy, showing us her goodies. Hehehe.

To make this place even MORE wonderful, there is a little vintage diner, Dot’s Diner, located on-site. We had breakfast there…DELISH. And the personalities at Dot’s are amazing. I want our sweet little waitress to serve us breakfast everyday.

Dot’s Lingo was pretty amusing too:

So, I’m a huge hat person. I basically wear one everyday. And lately, it’s been the same one because I’m semi-obsessed with it right now. I HATE to do my hair, and it’s becoming increasingly harder to find the time to do to it anyway….so simple fix: HAT. One of my favorite VINTAGE hat-wearing starlets currently is Sienna Miller. I like her style all around, but her hat obsession is probably my favorite. Enjoy the photos lovelies, xox.
