So Wrong? So Right?

You may have noticed that we love all things vintage, especially a fantastic dress.  This week we’re taking a look at the lace mini dress, an always coveted find at your local vintage boutique.

Vintage Cuties?

We love that lace can not only transcend the seasons here in Austin, Texas but that there are a plethora of fantastic shops to find these beauties in! However, we also know lace can go from classy to trashy pretty quickly…so what do you think?  Do these say classy lady or hot mess baby?
Here are some Local Austin Boutiques to check out for all your vintage clothing needs:

So wrong or so right?

I am not entirely sure if it’s the umbrella or these fabulous (and I do mean fabulous!) ceramic tiki tumblers, but with one sip, you’re instantly transported to a tropical paradise. (Ok, who are we kidding? It’s totally the Mai Tai’s that do the transporting!) But seriously folks, what do you think? Do my vintage tiki tumblers make you want to break out your ukulele and burst into song?  Or do you just think that these tiki’s may just have the Brady Bunch curse?

P.S. Regardless of what you think of my tumblers, you should try a refreshing Mai Tai this weekend – recipe below!

  • 4 parts dark rum (2 oz.)
  • 4 parts light rum (2 oz.)
  • 2 parts Curacao (1 oz.)
  • 2 parts fresh lime juice (1 oz.)
  • Grenadine (1 tbsp.)
  • Orgeat (almond) syrup  (1 tbsp.)
  • Pineapple spear
  • Umbrella and awesome tiki tumblers optional.

Combine all ingredients with cracked ice in a cocktail shaker and shake like there’s no tomorrow. Strain into a chilled tumbler or glass highball over crushed ice. Garnish with pineapple, umbrellas, orchids, etc… Have fun!

So Wrong? So Right?

From serving as a trusty side-kick to your toaster, to elegant serve ware for your table, who wouldn’t want this amazing vintage toast rack? Chances are you probably already have one, unknowingly re-purposing it for a way to organize mail or bills. Silly rabbit, toast holders are for toast–not post!

But what do you think? Is this toast holder so wrong or so right?

Oh and PS. Ignore that adorable condiment jar the jelly is in…that, my friends, is an entirely different post!
