**I think my face looks pretty herpderp in the second to last pic, but Grant likes it so I'll humor him**

Outfit Details:
Camel coat: thrifted
Vintage floral dress: thrifted
Vintage Salvatore Ferragamo flats: thrifted


Okay so we finally saw The Artist a few nights ago and man, it really was so good! If you're in OC I recommend seeing it at the Lido in Newport Beach because it just makes sense to see a movie that was set in the mid 20s-30s in a theater that was built in the 1930s! Some quick googling also informed me that when the theater opened in 1938 they played Jezabel, a film which starred Bette Davis. Bette lived in nearby Corona Del Mar and straight up told the people at the theater you better open with my movie... or else.

Well she didn't say the or else part but I could see it going down like that.  Anyway, these photos are from when we saw the movie.

On a related note, I really wish that I knew how to tap dance! Maybe I could find some adult tap dancing classes? Never mind that I have two left feet and what is probably an arthritic left knee...I wan't to learn dangit!


ALSO: I will be updating the new store MILK TEETHS vintage starting Monday! I'll announce the opening week deals and steals on Monday, too. If you could take a second to favorite the new store that would be awesome and methinks it will be worth your time to get a heads up on the stuff that I will be posting ;)

  10. Hahah your herpderp photo is pretty cute. You actually look like a 1930's movies star in this outfit! Oh man, don't you wish they had the kind of paparazzi photos back then that they do now for catching stars in their daily attire? I guess that's what made that time special though.

    Tap dancing is awesome, I definitely recommend taking a class or two. :)

  21. Beautiful dress. That soft shade of blue is lovely on you. I really like the coat as well.

    I agree, seeing The Artist in a historical theater makes the experience SO much more magical. I was lucky enough to have a similar experience to you. (Well, except for the fabulous Bette Davis part, lol). I hope it wins some Oscars!

  22. as ever you look gorgeous! When I saw the first photo of you all I could think was wartime Britain in the blitz. You look spot on for that period.

  23. Hey A!
    Your photos reminded me my grandmother's photo from years 20s, 30s.
    Is your wardrobe had to reflect your mood after a visit at the Lido? :)

  28. I used to have a coat very much like that! I wore it in college and then gave it to good will at some point when I was moving afterward. Also, I love going to old movie theaters. I'd take pretty surroundings over 3D, surround sound (or whatever modern movie theaters are boasting these days) any time. :)

  33. Okay, three things: 1. I loved The Artist, too! It was funny - in my theater a lot of people were eating popcorn and drinking sodas - and five minutes in everyone realized how loud they were being, got embarrassed and stopped. 2. Your posts always make me miss Orange County - I love the Lido theater, and love it even more with that story about Bette Davis. 3. That coat is fabulous.
