A vintage walk

It feels like summer is ending! The atmoshere has that "summer-ending" feel to it and we're just in July! It's strange. We've had some colder temperatures lately. Like, right now, it's 67 degrees! Granted, it is night-time. And I do live on the lake, so we get lake effect, but still. That's cold for July! We have our air conditioning blaring right now and it's so cold in the living room! I need to get up and turn it off, but I'm too lazy. It's 2:35 AM and I'm just now finally posting. I thought about sleeping, but decided against it. I'm going to try and pull an all-nighter. Too much to do!

I bought this vintage paper umbrella last spring from our antique mall for so cheap. I absolutely love it! It's so pretty! I can imagine bringing this down to the beach to block the shade - in vintage style! I usually don't buy a whole lot of vintage for my own wardrobe, but I absolutely love vintage-inspired clothing. Finding things like this are so fun too because they inspire new outfits (and make my photos look pretty!)

I need a simple, perfect LBD like this! I don't have one. Well, I have a couple.. but one has lace at the top, the other is super scandalously short.. and.. I think that's it. I loved this one! The detailing down the front is so pretty, but very subtle! I love styling clothes up in the Delightful Dozen, but I never want to return the clothes to their rightful owners! I'm actually trying to play catch up with DD swaps right now because I'm sooo behind. I feel so bad about holding girl's clothes hostage in my closet!

Well, you can tell it was muggy. My hair is a disaster! I've been thinking about highlights or dying it all brown. I'm not sure. My Aveda color karma says to go dark brown. My obsession with Eve Gravel's fall/winter 2010/11 line's model is forcing me to go back blonde. Life is so tough! I think I'll stay ombre. I don't know if I want to make a change before NYFW or not! I hateee hair. It's so annoying. Maybe I'll just keep growing it out to my natural color so that way I'm not blonde, I'm not dark brown. I'm a little bit of both! Well, I'm off. To clean our apartment! At 2:46 AM! Edit: I'm going to bed, I give up. I'm an old lady!
