I just listed this amazing vintage red leather motorcycle jacket. It is so well made, zippered slash pockets, a quilted lining and even a secret pocket inside. It has it all. Anyways recently I started playing tetris on my cell phone on the way to work everyday, I have gotten really obsessed with it. It isn't just normal tetris, different levels have ledges and split screens and magnets screwing up your gameboard as you play, the graphics in the background are of tornados and volcanos, they really tried to make it intense. Yesterday I got to a level that I could not beat, I was convinced it was unbeatable. If anyone was looking over my shoulder on the subway they must have thought I was crazy, I just kept hitting the retry button over and over and almost missed my stop. I kept talking about it at work while everyone gave me the side eye. Then I beat it on the way home today, it was a small triumph I suppose. I had forgotten how much I like video games. Although I should probably be reading a book instead.

New in the shop, several cotton 1960s era mini dresses, lots of new shoes and an incredible 1970s era leather trench coat. It is seriously killer, I was so excited when I found it. I have been so busy lately I haven't had enough time to list new things in the shop, it feels good to get some of it up. I have been working a lot at my freelance job, next week will be the same. On Saturday I took a cooking class, it was amazing. It was Thai cooking, we learned how to make Pad Thai, Yellow Curry, Mango Salad and Pad Kee Mao. This evening I tried to make the pad thai, it was pretty good but next time I make it it will be better. I wasn't too keen on the 1/4 cup of sugar, I like sweet things for sure but I don't like the idea of pouring that much into something I am going to have for dinner. I tried using agave instead, I think it worked out ok, next time I will use a little less, I don't like it too sweet. I also didn't use chicken or chicken broth, just tofu. After we learned how to make everything at the restaurant we sat down and they served us all the dishes together, it was so much food, I don't recall being that full at any time in recent memory. We drank wine at 2 in the afternoon, it was very decadent. Here is the recipe, the numbers scrawled on the side are the order in which the ingredients were added. The first 4 are first and that is 1 tbs of paprika, not 2.

I know that plaid is more of a fall thing but I keep finding it every time I go out, I just love it too. I don't really have the space to store things for another season so I list everything as I find it, I know the shop would look a lot neater if it was more organized by season. We like plaid around here, what can I say.

I just listed this vintage dress, it is so Wednesday Addams, I love it. It is a sweater dress, it has two small golden bows on the collar as well.

I listed some new spring tops as well. The pink sweater has silver metallic thread woven through it, the yellow blouse still has the original tags attached.

New in the shop today! Every morning I wake up to the sound of spanish music, I live above a bodega and they play it all the time. This morning when I woke up they were playing Fleetwood Mac, it was so strange! It was the song "Dreams." You know, the one that goes "Players only love you when they're playing." I seriously wasn't sure if I was dreaming or not.

I just added this pillowcase to my etsy shop. It is huge by the way, it measures 32" X 31" 

I LOVE all the new styles from Samantha Pleet, especially the polka dot shorts, just look at those pockets!

New items going into the shop today! My favorite would have to be the poncho, it's really awesome. The checkered skirt is pretty great too.

Here are a couple of new skirts I just added to the shop. The black one is especially cool, it has a slit up the side that goes to almost the mid thigh. Anyways today I walked all over creation, Valerie and I walked to Williamsburg and all around. At one point we stopped at a mexican restaurant for watermelon aqua frescas, I sat outside while she bought them and I got to hang out with this cool dog. It was huge. And sweet. At one point it leaned up against me as I was petting it. While we were sitting there I asked Valerie's baby Alden if he likes dogs, he looked at me very seriously and said "cats."
