I’m sorry. For what you ask? I don’t know exactly… I think I’m sorry for my complete and utter obsessions with vintage. I honestly do not know what has gotten into me. I’m generally not a shopper; in fact, I hate shopping. I hate clothes, well maybe hate is a strong word but I do not care for following the latest trends in clothes. I don’t give a rat’s fuzzy what some Hollywood actress or singer is wearing. I much rather spend my money on my house, my cats, animals in shelters, Farm Sanctuary, organic vegetables, soy lattes from SBUX, 60% dark chocolate, honey crisp apples, and wine…but Etsy.com is a deep dark glorious black hole of vintage. [Sigh] As a fallen away Catholic, I do not necessarily subscribe to the whole heaven and hell thing, I mean c’mon, the walls might not be red, but isn’t this hell right here on good ole Mother Earth? [Let’s not go there.] Anyway, I think my idea of heaven is going back to the 1950s like that movie Back to the Future, minus M.J. Fox (I was never a fan). Leave me Doc; at least he seems more interesting to hang out with. Load him up with liquor and watch him blow shit up. Did I just say shit? I did. Sorry for that too.
This past Tuesday, I was home, sick from work and bored out of my effing mind. I recently cut the cord with cable so there wasn’t anything on TV and I was too sick to do anything productive like, say, tend to my garden so what’s a GiRRL-Earth to do? I know, SHOP! Shop for what? Vintage shit (there I go again) Shop where? Etsy.com where else? Sheesh!
So in a hazy shade of sickness, I purchased two more coats. If all goes well, I’ll post the link to the sellers. Of course, you know I am hopelessly devoted to DaisyandStella (you never forget your first, do you?), but I like to spread the wealth around, I mean, it’s the least I could do for the economy, right? Riiiiiight.
With the smell of fall lurking around the corner like an ugly snake ready to scare the ever living shit out of me [this actually happened to me. Last weekend I happened upon an ugly snake in my basement (blech). I may blog about that at a later time depending upon whether or not I want relive the entire, horrible, shook-me-to-the-very-center-of-my-core experience].
As I said, with fall lurking, I bought the following coats. Feast your eyes on these beauties. Not that I want to rush the summer or anyting but c’mon let’s be honest, Thanksgiving will be here before you know it and I’ll be bitching about how I have to remind everyone I am a vegan and no I do not want any G.D. turkey, especially one who lived a horrible existence before being slaughtered… but I digress.
These are the coats. Aren’t they groovy?… Admit it, they are, c’mon…you know you love them. Well, I do and that’s all that matters.
Coat Numero Primo [and no that is NOT fur. As if!] :
9/2/2012 Update: I received the above coat yesterday (Saturday 9/1) and it is even more beautiful in person! The photo does not do this coat justice. Additionally, as it turns out, this coat is also a Youthcraft. So this purchase was a win-win all around. Lastly, I purchased the above coat from the following (awesome!) Etsy vintage seller: ByMidnight Sparkle.
And coat Numero Secondo [which is a Youthcraft! Also, seller is throwing in the scarf for free because she said, “…based on your Etsy profile pic, the scarf would look fabulous on you.” Wasn’t that sweet?]
I cannot WAIT to wear these coats… I’m giddy with anticipation…
