Antiques

One of my favorite things to do is browse kitchens and bathrooms and bedrooms and living rooms (ok I could’ve just said homes) on pinterest. Dreaming, planning, but mostly dreaming about how I want my home to be like. Being a grad student (ha! not me, AKG…sucker) means semi-permanent living situations, so I often think about if I ever will be in a more-permanent living sitch.

I love when I read blogs and someone asks, “…where’s that couch from?” and the person responds something along the lines of “Oh it’s an old/vintage thing that I had reupholstered.” It’s the same reason why I love Hobags….I just adore that someone can have something that likely no one else does. Having something truly unique to you & talored to your taste is priceless I think. So, sometimes I also wander through antique shops and do some more day-dreaming…

Lip Service: Spring

Desktop38

Okay I have been hoarding lip colors lately, and I feel compelled to share them with you. I guess you could call this a new “series” for Foggy Dress. I’ll be sharing pretty favorites and I’ll try to post pictures of me wearing them!

Now on to the good stuff.

Two colors to carry you into spring…

  • Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon in Sedona Sands ~ so I am obsessed with lip crayons. So easy when you’re on-the-go. This is one of my new faaaaaaave colors to wear every day, it’s like a nude + blush pink shade that will look gorgeously barely there.
  • Mac Sushi Kiss Lipstick ~ Ugh I cannot express how good this makes your lips look. If you’ve always wanted to try an orange shade, this is your lip color. It’s more of a peachy-orange that almost looks slightly neon in real life… but in pictures? It looks delicious. It’s the color I wore in some of my outfits on theWKNDS.com & I just adore how it turned out.

What’s in Your (ho) Bag?

Okay, it’s time  for another round of What’s in Your Bag.

I just got back from a wonderful week in Colorado, I’ll share photos later. Seeing as it’s Monday and I have to do work (I mostly work from home), I naturally am procrastinating and thus blogging about all the crap I haul around in my bag. I love seeing what others carry in their bags, so I figure I might as well share what’s in mine.

I always carry a portable phone charger, floss & gum, my “lipstick bag”, hair clips and bands, lotion, sunnies, phone, wallet, keys, and…apparently a rubik’s cube! Phew, that is a lot of crap.

That silver lipstick baggie is silly to haul around all the time, but lipstick/gloss/balm is always the thing I’m putting on in the car on the way to wherever I’m going so…it’s super necessary.

What kind of silly/necessary things do you haul around in your bag?

PS – the Hobag pictured above was my very first Hobag that I ever made, back when I was a sophomore in college.

Estate of Mind

wpid-2015-01-11-07.58.12-2.jpg.jpegI can rarely just keep on driving once I see an “estate sale” sign along the road….I mean just thinking what’s behind those doors… the curiosity kills me!wpid-2015-01-11-08.00.45-2.jpg.jpegThey had a huge rack of fur coats of fox and mink. I felt like I was walking into 1945!

wpid-2015-01-11-08.00.43-2.jpg.jpegAnd these glass frames….seriously, someone had a classy grandma. Which pair do you like best?

I ended up getting a few things, including a gorgeous vintage gold SEIKO watch that needs a little cleaning and a new battery. If you live in the Pasadena/San Marino area, there are always amazing estate sales going on, you just have to dig a little. One house I went to off California Blvd. ended up being the house where they filmed Catch Me If You Can! Sometimes it’s worth a stop just to poke around the old homes… Do you know any good estate sales in the So Cal area? LMK!
