Hello! Just popping in to let you know that I'm having another sale at the shop. Hope your Thanksgivings were wonderful :)

beret - etsy
sunglasses - Asos
loafers - thrift store
So here I am trying to make a beret happen (again). I love hats and have no problem wearing beanies, baseball caps, floppy hats, mountain man hats, however, when it comes to berets I'm always like, "...I think this might look stupid on my head?". Cue Grant walking by, "oh hey Samuel L Jackson". SIGH. Not the look I was going for, but thanks.
Anyway, I guess I was feeling particularly bold this day and threw caution to the wind. Berets will forever remain elusive but I suppose it won't stop me from trying to plop one on my head every Fall & Winter.

A while ago I was contacted by Maybelline and Refinery29 wanting to know if I was up for trying out Maybelline's new lip gloss line, Color Elixir. Uh...yes, please! I always have an eye out for fun new lip products, if you look into my purse you'll find about 15 different lipsticks, lip glosses, lip pencils, lip balms...you get the picture. No such thing as too much lip stuff, I say!
They sent over three colors, A red (Signature Scarlet), Pink (Fuschia Flourish), and a Purple-y pink (Raspberry Rhapsody) . I was kind of apprehensive about the two shades that weren't red (those above mentioned 15 lip products always in my purse? All of them are shades of red) but I was pleasantly surprised. The pink, although bright, was totally wearable and didn't look weird against my skin tone, which I've found is usually the case with pink lip colors. Also, I was expecting the Raspberry Rhapsody to go on super dark and purpley but it's actually a really sheer, wine color. Not bad!
However, my true love will forever be a red lip and the Signature Scarlet did not disappoint. For everyday, I usually just do a small dab of the lip gloss and smear it around with my pinky for a natural look. You can definitely intensify the color by adding more gloss (which I did for these photos!). BONUS: there is no shimmer in these lip glosses. Shimmer has it's time and place, but I don't normally like it on my lips. DOUBLE BONUS: this lip gloss stays on for a long time and has a really nice texture, sort of like a thick, velvety lip balm, a perfect antidote to the super dry Fall & Winter air.
Anyway, thanks for the lip loot, R29 & Maybelline. These babies will be added to the roster ;-)

leather loafers - thrifted
Poppin in to say hello! Pictured is pretty much what I wear most days out of the week. Jeans, stripes, loafers. Nothing too crazy.
On a different note, here's a list of things I've been into lately:
American Horror Story
I normally don't like watching "scary" TV shows but since it's October I feel like it's only appropriate to try to get into the Halloween spirit. Welp, Grant and I watched the first season on Netflix and UMMMM.....wut?? I would say the first half of the season was legitimately eerie/ spooky but then the show got RIDICULOUS! Like Grant and I would look at each other and just start laughing during certain parts because it was so outrageous. Anyone who watches the show feel me on this?
Rice Krispy Treats
Specifically, Kellog's Rice Krispy Treats. I've opened a Pandora's box that had previously been closed for YEARS. I can't stop eating these! I look for them in liquor stores/gas stations....I can't bring myself to buy a box at the super market because I will devour said box in an evening if left to my own devices. Full disclosure: after I write this post I'm going to eat a 'king size' rice krispy treat. The texture is the BEST, homemade can't compare.
Peanut butter and honey on toast
I pretty much dislike the taste of honey and yet when spread on some peanut butter? Not so bad! I've been eating a piece of toast with peanut butter and honey for 5 days straight.
It's getting looonnngg! I'm a little tempted to cut it but I haven't had long hair in a while so I'll keep growing it out. I'm also tempted to dye my hair but I don't think I'm prepared for the upkeep. Maybe when I start to go gray? Hopefully that doesn't happen for a long time (I probably just jinxed myself).

Hello! Thought I'd pop in and post an outfit from a week or so ago. My hair was an unwashed mess so on the bandanna went.
In other news, life's been pretty good. I've been busy working and maintaining the shop. I have so much stuff that's sitting in my vintage closet just waiting to be listed but honestly, after working in front of a computer at my "regular" job during the day, coming home and hopping back on a laptop is definitely very low on my list of Things That Sound Like Fun. I usually get home around 5 and do one of three things: either hang out with friends and get dinner, look up a recipe and make dinner, or go out thrifting with Grant which results in me finding things for the shop and stuffing them into the closet to be dealt with later (and the cycle continues). Sigh. Doesn't help that we have the slowest internet known to man at our place. Literally 1998 modem status. And if both of us are on the computer at the same time? Forget it.
I think that's enough ranting for today ;-(

vintage stetson hat - thrift store
vintage leather boots - thrift store
A few weeks ago Grant and I decided to check out Huntington Gardens in Pasadena. We both had never been but had heard so many amazing things--we just had to go. Also, that weekend was my birthday so we decided to go big and get afternoon tea there too (it was great!). We went on a Friday and luckily it wasn't too crowded and it stayed kind of overcast which nice, it made it seem more Fall like. Besides gardens, they also have some amazing art collections on the grounds. They have an exhibition about the California missions which was interesting to see, namely because they had an old slideshow playing on one of the walls projecting old kodachrome slides of people from the 50s-60s visiting some of the missions.
On a different note: OMG BREAKING BADDDDD! Still not over how good the ending was. So sad the series is over :*( Perhaps I'll drown my sorrows by buying some merch at the AMC store?? I definitely have my eye on a few things...
Outfit details: vintage Stetson: thrift store, navy blue corduroy jumper: Old Navy, vintage button up: thrift store, Everlane tote bag
I think this navy blue jumper dress is the oldest thing that I continuously wear from my closet. I probably wear it at least once a month and I think I purchased it 5+ years ago? One time I found a tan version of this dress at a a thrift store a year or two ago and I'm still kicking myself for not grabbing it.
In other news, currently sitting on the couch re-watching old Breaking Bad episodes. UGH this show!!! Cannot wait to see how the series finale plays out.
Oh and also, I've been working extra hard on my Etsy shop these days! Trying to fill it up to the gills with new merchandise and I'm flirting with the idea of expanding more of the home goods section. We'll see. I've been updating several times a week so come take a look? AND if you like MILK TEETHS on facebook you can get a 10% off discount-just message me for the code ;-)
I know that I usually update with a thrift files post about the cool stuff I've seen while thrifting, but I realized that I never really share the pieces that I've actually found and BOUGHT at the stores so I figured I'd do a post on that. Without further adieu...
I found this old mirror a few weeks ago at the Goodwill. It is HEAVY but I love its trifold shape. I don't have a place to put it yet but I'd like to carve out a tiny vanity in the bedroom, this mirror would be perfect for that nook.
A pretty blue glass electric insulator. Found at the Goodwill
I pretty much don't drink but it doesn't stop me from buying vintage barware. All found at various thrift stores. Pictured: a glass cocktail shaker (with scenes from Paris), a California jigger glass, leather ice bucket, and wood and brass bar set.
Can't remember If I've shared this one but this is a dried floral and driftwood arrangement housed underneath a bell jar. Found at the Goodwill. I've left it as is but I may want to put something different under the jar
An old '50s wire cake stand.
A favorite find (from the Salvation Army)! An old '60s world map, this hangs in the sitting room. I love the colors so much.
