A day to myself

Today I traveled into New Hope, PA mainly to "go" with my mom to get her tattoo, yes I said her tattoo, my mom got a tattoo today ha! But I really just went for the free ride to New Hope to do some vintage and thrift shopping, and see the gorgeous Delaware River. It was a bit cold but I had a good time going into all the vintage stores by myself and spending as much time as I wanted in each one basically examining everything.

here's some pictures from my day;


my favorite vintage dress shop, which is a little out of my price range had a wreath decorated with Audrey Hepburn pictures! I basically died...

I was sneaky and got a picture of one of the displays in the store, gorgeous - I know.

I went home with a lovely black velvet short cape from my favorite vintage shop Nightbird, I plan on adding a button and chain to it since it comes with nothing to keep it on, I'll show you what it looks like soon!

Also just thought I'd share my excitment about Polaroids coming back into my life soon, they are making new cameras and coming out with more film - YAY. Although I'm not a Lady Gaga fan, so I'm not thrilled she's the new creative director for Polaroid, but whatever gets them going again!
Heres some prototypes for the new cameras
I love the black and wood one, I can't wait!

and last but not least, I finally purchased lipstick yesterday, I feel like an adult in lipstick and never wore it before but I've become sightly in love with it, here's quick pictures I took in my two new shades. My hair color looks horrible with the shades, but I'm dying it back to my real color (dark brown, basically black) (- it's red in these pictures, you can't even tell though) on friday so I should look wonderful when it's done!



tomorrow, Passion Pit in NYC, so excited!

Those vintage shops look divine. Have fun seeing Passion Pit! They're coming down to Australia in a few weeks but unfortunately I won't be able to catch a show. xx

I am SO GLAD they are making polaroid film again...I luckily already own a camera that I inherited, however not being able to use it because of film issues has been a major bummer. Also, vintage shopping alone is SO FUN. I'm jealous of the selection, and I think it's pretty cool your mom got a tattoo ;).

So glad Lady Gaga is helping them again! I want some film for my camera so bad! And I'm really curious as to what tattoo your mom got. haha you look really cute :)

April said...

Oh, Polaroid! What is Lady Gaga doing there? Hmm.
My eyes are really intense so I feel like I can't wear lipstick. Looks nice on you though! :)

ashleymoe said...

I don't know why lady gaga has to be messing with polaroid! siiggh. They do look wonderful, though! I'm very excited.

Otis said...

AHHH! I am friggin in love with POLAROID CAMERAS! Are they going to be cheaper because if they are than I can finally get one. Oh and I'm glad I'm not the only one with a family member wanting a tattoo...apparently my grandmother really wants a smiley face tattoo on her butt. Concerned.

It's been awhile since the last time I went thrifting. I can't wait to go next week with a very good friend.

Charmalade said...

Thrifting and red lipstick-- wonderful! and Lady Gaga, even more wonderful. :D

It's hard to tell here, but those shades look great. I always feel more sophisticated in new lipstick.
