Vintage Addiction & Hairstyles

16 12 2009

Hello, My Name is Lady Grunge (AKA Stacie) and I am an addict.

Now that my stock is pouring out of my closet…. as it always ends up doing… mostly because I like to try everything on and sometimes borrow pieces…. :::SIGH::: I have issues.

I discovered this because I am trying to organize it again and haven’t yet broken down yet to ask my husband (Mr. Organization) for his help.

The main problem is that I love to shop and get bored with the photographing and posting. This must change!

Okay, I have admitted I have a problem and that I need to change. I’ll skip the accountability part because I don’t want any of that. But I do have a great motivation to get everything going and all of my floating unposted stock going… a clean office! And once it’s clean then i will want to be in there! Once I want to be in there- I will sew! Once I sew then I can sell my adorable recycled skirts I’ve been playing around with and then…. SHOP MORE! BLOG MORE! POST GREAT IMAGES FROM Magazines that are lost under dresses and skirts! I will prevail over this addiction and become a contributing member to society by providing adorable vintage and handmade!

All of this will be powered by my new Natalie Imbruglia (circa 2006) Choppy Pixie HairCut courtesy of Nancy in Riverside (amazing stylist for only $35 who works with all types of hair and lengths and is stinkin adorable! Plus she loves vintage!!)

If you see new photos by Friday Afternoon you will know I am back on track if not, maybe next week =)

For now enjoy these cool hair styles that I have found places including my own magazines and would like to share

Sneak Peek and Fresh and Easy Review

10 12 2009

Just finished a shopping spree in Pomona which left me so excited I had to post a Preview of what is to come!

So, after being convinced that I was going to be mugged in the parking lot of the Salvation Army I got my treasures to the car, jumped in and then hauled my booty out of the parking lot. I only venture there rarely as they don’t always carry much good vintage. It’s sad but true… I still heart the Salvation Army Thrift Stores.

Here’s a few peices… I would have added more, but the photos came out pretty bad.

I have about 6 tops, 1 leather jacket and a dress waiting for me to pick up tomorrow… Maybe I’ll do a quick posts so you can see the fruits of my labor.

Part 2: Fresh and Easy Review.

LOVE IT! Why? A few simple reasons: Great packaging of products, they look so appealing to me, They carry Pesto, they clearance out their bread super cheap! I am talking RoseMary Rolls for 65 cents!

Issue: The check out, I was asked 3 times if I needed help working the self-check out scanner so I must really look like a dunce or something. But I did enjoy grouping together the different foods in the bags.

Part 3: Hair Cut on Saturday:

Woo!

Happiness is My New White Vintage Table

13 11 2009

Oh, the joy that this brings me!

We bought a Hutch, set of matching danish chairs… oh, and a HUGE UGLY table that was thrown in with the other two items off of craigslist. For 9 months I have been staring at the hideous beast every day. Finally we got around to selling it on craigslist and I purchased a beat up ugly table for $7 from the thrift store.

Two months after that (I move slow) I went with my hubby to pick out paint and actually remembered to buy all the needed supplies. I waited until he had left (I work best when he is gone because the fun in the painting is to be able to suprise him when he gets home!) then painted 3 thin layers of primer and 4 coats of brilliant white paint.

I then dug into my fabric stash for some fabric he and I had picked up a year ago in LA and never figured out what to do with. I wasn’t really sold on it, but we had some people come by to pick up our danish sofa and the two of them plus Lee decided it’s a good combo…. Stacie-1+ Lee-3= Stacie Looses =(

Dang.

So, once I find my staple gun that he bought me for valentines day I will attach the fabric… Also, I am drying some coats on the chairs… so ignore those.

The Value of a Vintage Sweater

13 11 2009

Ah, the Art of the Sweater. In my opinion, one can never and I mean NEVER have enough Vintage Sweaters. They add a unique touch to what you are wearing no matter what the season it is. The same sweater can take you from a lovely layered look in winter to thrown over a swimsuit in summer. Plus when complimented who doesn’t love to respond “Thanks. It’s Vintage.” Or maybe that’s just me…
