Coconut Banana Blueberry Cinnamon Popsicles

So... what's easier than making your own popsicles? I love knowing exactly what I am putting into my body because I made these popsicles from scratch with the help of these adorable popsicle makers from JoAnn's! They have other cute colors, too! I have a feeling a new obsession is starting................
RECIPE:
(Mix together in a blender)
1 pinch of shredded coconut
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
3 tablespoons of coconut yogurt 
1 banana
1 handful of fresh blueberries
1/2 cup of almond milk
Pour it in the mold, stick it in the freezer overnight and have them for breakfast the next morning!

Thursday

Blue Brocade & Wedding Day Satin

I remember trying this dress on at one of Adrienne Weber's vintage sales at the Red Herring Vegetarian Restaurant last year and absolutely loving it, but not buying it due to limited funds (TEARS!). Upon trying the dress on again: WOW. This dress is not only classy and beautiful, it is figure fitting! I was surprised at just how well this dress fits me! It's truly one of a kind and it takes someone special to have confidence to wear it out in public. Believing in yourself is key to getting what you want in life. Here's to being confident and chasing after your dreams! This dress definitely makes me feel empowered.... Nevertheless, you may buy this dress at my store Paulie Antiques! It is now for sale! I am offering it to you....... .
I love Brocade!!
Oh- and the hat is a bridal hat made from white satin. It makes me feel a little more special... like a princess getting ready to meet a prince. I like imagining fairytales like that in my head a lot, lately.... But, sadly- I am still searching for my prince.
What do you think about this dress? Where would you wear it? What accessories would you pair with it?

1950's Saks Fifth Avenue Blue Dress for sale at Paulie Antiques!

Hi, there! Over the past couple of weeks, my friend Adrienne Weber, Nathan Adhikari and I have been photographing some vintage clothing to sell in my shop, Paulie Antiques. Adrienne Weber and her mother have found these pieces and they are all very special- so I am curating them for my shop with extra care. It is really a pleasure to work with an original 1950's Saks Fifth Avenue dress! WOW!! 
These wonderful glasses are courtesy of GlassesUSA.com and I absolutely adore them! They are so comfortable and I love the case they came in and the cleaning cloth as well. I have a feeling that I will have these glasses for a very long time thanks to the care they put into the order. They make everything I look at slightly holographic- looking at my phone with them on is a little off setting, but I think it gives me a new perspective and I quite like it! Get 10% off of your order with the coupon code: Blog10 and check out their twitter and facebook! XO
If you'd like to purchase this dress, please visit the listing in my shop! I am so pleased to offer this wonderful gem to the public through Paulie Antiques!

Outfit: Could You be Loved

For the past few days I've been playing Bob Marley back in the costume shop at my job and I just can't enough. Bob Marley makes me feel so relaxed and happy in my own skin. I don't want for things or feel like I am not good enough when listening to his music. My mother actually got married in Jamaica and lived there for a few years... and she really got me into Bob Marley's music.... and it's really been affecting my experimentation with style. I'm definitely feeling funkier thanks to this wonderful vest my amazing cousin Heather gave to me for my college graduation! I love you, Heather!
Outfit Details: Gold hat- vintage, my mother's
socks- unopened at Salvation Army
petticoat- Goodwill
purse- vintage, 1950's, Goodwill in St. Louis
blouse- Salvation Army
vest- Funky People, gift from my cousin Heather
