A little magic happened this past Saturday when I happened upon a sale and met the incredibly talented and uniquely gifted Jacqleeen Bleu.
I love when life hands you tiny gifts you aren't expecting. Jacqleen Bleu is a fellow Etsian, a wonderful photographer with an incredible, magical eye, and a jewelry designer who makes gorgeous old world style pieces. She also happens to be a very cool girl.
With one glance I fell in love with her photography. I told her "It's like you crept into my dreams". The photos are like fairy tales, magical and haunting. They spawn nostalgia of times you have never experienced but feel like you have lived.
I'd like to live in Alice's house. I'd have a tea party with my dearest friends. After they departed, I'd find solace outside while I sat quietly waiting for tiny birds to visit my bird house. Later that evening I'd fall asleep to the tune of the tiny ballerina spinning my cares away.
I may be in the minority but I absolutely LOVED Jessica Biel's outfit at the MTV Music Awards. To me it was the perfect mix of modern and vintage while being cute and classic. I love to mix old with new in my wardrobe. This is something I would wear. I wish!

With the glittery trend hot right now its actually OK to pump up the shine. But don't over-do it, tone your glitter with a contrasting modern, matte top or vice-versa.
Here are some fabulous vintage finds to mix with your new:
It's been a quiet week on my end. I am sick with the flu and on day #5 today. What else is a sick girl to do but lay on the couch and browse Craigslist for fabulous mid century furniture she has no room for?
My favorites this week from Craigslist Los Angeles and Orange County:
