weekend update





My best friend from back home came to visit us last week. Dagmar is the coolest girl alive, and adventure has been in high supply: Corona chugging, fireworks over the Brooklyn Bridge, shady thrift stores, snacking on street produce, Indian food, Icelandic chocolate, moving sales, roof-wrasslin', Fleet Week!, dog packs, cherry pie, Found videos, Rock Rock Rockaway Beach, and copious napping. I wish she could stay with us forever!

first of all, i believe you are to blame for my current love of vests, espically those of the vintage variety.
secondly, you look adorable in that first pic.
thirdly, your friend's back tattoo is SO cool. :D
thanks for always being so inspiring.

aww, that's so lovely. I had a friend from back home visit me in the city and although it was cold, which I'm not too fond of, it was fun, fun, fun!

p.s. do you think you could recommend some thrift stores in nyc?

thanks!

Thanks everyone! Dagmar's tattoo is actually of a plant called teasle, it grows wild on the island where we grew up. But either way, it sure is awesome!

As far as thrift stores in New York, I guess I should have amended that to say "Buy/Sell/Trade stores", because I have yet to find a legit, awesome thrift store here. But there's a Savers out on Long Island that has potential, and a few others in the same general area that I keep meaning to check out. The only downside, of course, is that it means a full day and a train trip, but that's only a downside if you're broke and haven't got the time!

And blossom and Ashley, I'd love to swap links! Consider it done :n )
