1970s white embroidered peasant dress: pile sale ($5)
Pretty sure I've posted this dress on this blog before....and I've even blogged about this beach before but you know what? I don't care! This blog is more of a photo journal that chronicles what I do with my time and how I dress rather than some out of touch "aspirational" fashion blog that only features girls constantly wearing new or gifted clothing (...do bloggers not re-wear their duds ever?) from designer X,Y, and Z. I think that format is really boring but maybe that's just me.
Anyway, here are a few shots from an afternoon at my favorite beach in Laguna. A little off the beaten path, I like this beach because it's less packed, has remnants from an old 1920s swimming pool on the beach, and it has a tower on it. Talk about picturesque. Until convinced otherwise, Laguna Beach has, by far, the best beaches in Southern California bar none. Clear, deep turquoise water, rugged cliffs bursting with flowering succulents, jagged hillsides studded with crystals...no beach can compare.
After the beach we ate at The Stand which is a small vegan health food joint off of Thalia. I was wondering what people would think to be quintessentially California-style food and I think it would probably be "health food". People really do love their avocados, quinoa, bean sprouts, tofu, whole grain, macrobiotic, gluten free, organic, locally sourced, farm raised, raw etc. etc. etc. diets over here. Well, that and Mexican food. And In-N-out.
Tonight my pals from high school, Young The Giant, played the MTV VMAs. So crazy. I think I also heard their song being used as The Survivor theme song for this season?? Anyway, pretty neat stuff. Congratulations guys :)
