Amy shot these a week or so ago when the rain, like yesterday, decided to kick the sun aside and force us to huddle up in our most homely of garments and stick to the great indoors for a day of art projects and old cinema. Can’t say I’m happy about the rain in May, but after a weekend of fashion shows (more to come on Stanford University’s Charity Fashion Show), live music (of course accompanied by dancing into the wee hours) and Bay to Breakers (we did not attend, merely watched from our perch, snapped photos of waaay too many men in diapers, and sighed in relief that we had not consumed gallons of alcohol before 8 am), we needed a damp, cold day to tell us it was OK to stay inside. 

(floral blouse-vintage, jacket-vintage Painted Bird, velvet stirrup leggings-American Apparel, jewelry-vintage) Eeeee, one more thing: What’s better than finding a new vintage store in your city where you literally want to buy everything down to the reclaimed wood doors on the dressing rooms? Nothing. We found a new gem in the Mission the other day and we peed our pants just a little. Definitely on the pricier side. You know, the usual arm and a leg for a well worn Rolling Stones tee, $60-100 on a vintage leather jacket, and plenty of floral gettups, along with a few newer brand such as Cheap Monday denim and sunglasses. Even if you step in just to check out their mad decorating skills you’ll leave with a grin on your chin…..After Life.
