So anyone who knows me well knows that I'm pretty addicted to thrift stores. I think it's because it's like a treasure hunt, combined with there being so many good ones in Minneapolis at which to find way cool vintage or designer duds for next to nothing. Occasionally though I pass on something only to find myself later lamenting over letting it slip through my fingers! A few such finds include a perfect condition vintage red round suitcase ("But where will I store it when I'm not using it?" I said), an amazing vintage camel color wool coat with a luscious natural fox fur collar ("Idk, Dylan just became a vegetarian. He might object." Boo on that!) and more recently a chic pair of brown leather high heeled sandals that made my calves look awesome! I went back for them this morning but of course they were gone and now I'm bummed out with thrift store regret. But I did end up saying yes to one thing which I might have hesitated over normally, a super cute old lady spring jacket! It's plaid which I love and I think it kinda has that granny chic thing going. (Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if my 94 year old grandma actually owns this!)
It doesn't look like much on the hanger but paired with a tank and a cute pair of jeans I'm lovin' it! Hope your weekend is filled with fun and fruitful shopping!

I don't know why I live in Minnesota. After a week of spring-like melting and sunshine it is snowing again. Fiercely. And what makes it worse it that tons of my friends are escaping it by traveling the globe. Several have been taking trips to steamy hot India, another just went to Arizona, and I keep seeing these facebook pictures of people mountain biking or ocean swimming. Next year I'm gonna HAVE to save up for a winter trip! In the mean time though I'm going to try to stay positive and that's why I'm posting 7 images of summer from Flicker.

Wedding cakes are such an art form and just when you think you've seen everything, you spy some cakes that just take your breath away! These beauties are from Bobbette & Belle Bakery located in Toronto, ON. Even if you're not going to be up ol' Canada way they provide great inspiration!
