Bumblebees and Cherry Trees

Outfit details: Vest- Wet Seal, Dress- Vintage; altered, Jeans- Forever 21, Flats- Gap, Glasses- Vintage

Today my dad told me I looked like a bumblebee. We're doing a photo shoot out at the Sound Farm in Jamaica and I'm going to be his assistant. It's a good way to get experience and keep myself busy.

Some photos I took a few weeks ago when the trees were blooming.

New Purchases

A new pair of vintage specs. 

Pretty lace gloves. 
Vintage skirt pattern.

A new cardigan, on sale at Target. 

A pretty vintage dress. It was originally $75, but the saleswoman sold it to me for $25 because I am a collector. :)

Bee Smith Millinery

I absolutely adore these gorgeous hats from Bee Smith Millinery
You can find her millinery creations along with some other great vintage items on Rokit Vintage

I'm excited because my friend Hannah and her mom and I are going to learn to make hats this summer. These designs are incredibly inspiring and I can't wait to learn!

Birthday! May 25th, 2011

Outfit Details: Dress- Express, Shoes- Younkers, Sweater- Target, Clutch- Target
I attempted to do a cute beehive, but I guess I still need practice. It turned out like more of an updo and I used the rest of the hair that wasn't teased at the top of my head to make a braid that went across the front. 
A view of my back tattoo. I wish I had a better photo of my nails, they matched my clutch and dress!
My mom took my friends, sister, and I to get pedicures. I chose to have purple with purple glitter and a pretty design with a rhinestone. I can't tell you why I love sparkles so much, but every time I look at my toes it's a little burst of pretty. 
Birthday flowers from mom :)
Birthday flowers from dad. :)

Chocolate with buttercream frosting, my favorite!
We had dinner at Ohana Steakhouse which is one of my favorites. 

My birthday was quite lovely. I got a little emotional a few times throughout the day though, which sort of put a damper on things and the last couple of hours were really terrible. I don't know why but it's almost a tradition for me to cry on my birthday. 
Still, I am incredibly grateful to my friends and family for being so sweet to me and making me feel special.
