I'm back! + Cherries Galore!

Okay, long time no see, lovies! I've been soo busy/tired/exhausted/lazy/etc...but I think I've gotten it outta my system. I did another drag king show, photos coming soooooon and I've been working hard and resting when I'm off. Why don't we have 3 day weekends every weekend? That'd be amazing!

We'll kick off my hiatus with a post about cherries because who here hates cherries?? Not I!   This is pretty surprising because I've never had many articles of clothing or accessories with cherry prints on them but I'm slowly changing that one item at a time. Check out the cool items I've snagged somewhat recently:


Cherry print hair tie from Dolly Cool Clare...absolutely love this! It's great for a simple hair day that doesn't involve hair setting and it instantly gives ya that adorable rockabilly chick look. It's made of cotton and sewn so it lays flat and never gets all bunched up. Awesome accessory Dolly!!  :) I'm getting the leopard print one next! ..C'mon payday lol Get yours here!



Cherry print handbag...found this at a Good Will for about $4.99. I would have preferred black trim but tan will do just fine. This is smaller than the typical handbags I carry so I'll have to condense a bit!



Cherry patch black summer top...I ironed this patch on this black sleeveless top and now it's got a fun, retro feel to it. Hmmm, I think I'll do the same to a white top too! Get some patches of your own :)



Ah cherries, they seem to brighten the day a bit!

I haven't had much luck with thrifted handbags {although I do have a slew of vintage clutches from a friend's grandmother that passed}. I used to love big bold patterns on a bag, maybe I should hunt down one for the winter months.

p.s. FYI: I was having issues commenting. Can't just type in name and website like I could in past. I and old account that's going away soon.

3 day weekends would definitely be amazing! Looove cherry prints too, even though I don't have a whole bunch of them.

@ Glamazini, it's nice to acquire vintage stuff from actual people, I normally find cute ones but not vintage ones. The local vintage stores are the ones I have good luck with! I wonder what's going on with the commenting, I hope it clears itself up, I'm kinda clueless about it!

@ Lucy Mae - I'm gonna run for president lol just for my own 3 day weekend agenda!

@ Funbi, thanks! That's my thought exactly, pops of color instantly! I'm gonna be posting more drag photos soon, I got some more good shots :D

@ Dolly, you're so welcome! I can't wait to get a new one, I'm so in love with my cherry one!
