My go to vintage color combo always seems to be navy and red.  I love how it looks so sweet and americana. The butterfly dress I am wearing in these pics is a FAVORITE.  I purchased it in Simi Valley CA long ago at the Goodwill (that is when I would drive, in my beat up Ford Taurus, to every Goodwill in a 100 mile radius to buy vintage). Such a find..RIGHT?? Oh and that jacket with the killer polka dot lining....found it in the dollar pile at Jet Rag on La Brea.  If you live in LA I think they still have the $1 sales on sunday...sooo don't miss it! 

I took these shots when we were having a little burst of January warm weather here in NY! Today there is snow on the ground so that is long gone! Not to worry...some fashion shoots in the snow are on the way.

Happy New Year all!!! For the 2012 I am going to be bringing you a lil' closer into my life here in Brooklyn New York with some VERY personal style and food posts! It's just more fun that way..right??? 

So today I didn't really get anything done, because I was so busy parading around the house wearing this GORGEOUS beaded vintage gown!! Won't it be perfect for tonight? I picked it up at Shereen Vintage in NYC. Have you been???  It's amazing and really got me back into vintage again... after being without since I moved to NYC (prices are too high here). Shareen and her staff are just such a pleasure to visit with and offer amazing suggestions on what is just right for your body type. I would shop her LA location years ago and now I am all to happy to shop her vintage finds in NYC. 

Hope everyone has a lovely evening with lots of champagne and sweet kisses at midnight!
