It really was less of a long weekend and more of a looooooooong Saturday. My friend Alex and I headed up to
early on Saturday morning, had breakfast at Gravy, visited the Mississippi Flea Market and then hit every vintage store we could find. On Portland , we went to Flutter and Animal Tracks. On Mississippi we had lunch at Petite Provence and went to Billy Goat Vintage and The Factory. And downtown, on 10th, I think, we went to Fat Fancy and Ray’s Ragtime. Alberta
Sadly, neither of us were very successful in finding anything; although I did purchase an amazing clutch from the Mississippi Flea Market (I love clutches, I have a couple dozen of them) and Alex found a gorgeous dress at Flutter. Luckily, our trip to
was two-fold; we were also going to an 80s concert in nearby Canby that night. Portland
The concert was absolutely fabulous. It was outdoors at a bar called The Wild Hare Saloon and it was great. It was $12 for three bands all of whom played 80s music. The first group was Radical Revolution; they play 80s pop and are the same band that played at our 80s prom.
The second group was Stone in Love, a Journey tribute band:

And the night closed with Hair Assault, a hair/metal group:

We had the best time, but didn’t get home until nearly 1 am. Therefore I spent most of Sunday lazing about the house and re-watching Casino Royale (it’s one of my favorite movies and I adore Daniel Craig). I think I was still tired, or maybe just uninspired today, because I couldn’t come up with anything to wear besides this:
Oh, no, it’s not bad, I know that. It’s just so neutral. And I am not a neutral kind of gal. But, I liked this outfit in spite of its snooze-fest of a color palette. The black jeggings (Gap Outlet) are super comfortable, as is the embellished tank (Design History via Ross) and the wedges (Bamboo via TJ Maxx). I added simple gold hoops and a vintage cameo bracelet and pedaled my tired little heinie to work.
Today’s Takeaway? For all you color-lovers out there; neutral isn’t bad, it’s just neutral (and that's okay).
Happy Monday, Everyone!
