the colors of fall

the colors of fall by mlee30 featuring mid heel shoes

I've decided on this color scheme for fall, we'll see if I can stick to the plan.

All of the above are from Modcloth and I especially love the measuring tape bracelet... somebody give the mister a hint ;)

how cool is she...

it's been awhile hasn't it?

i've known of etsy for awhile and finally took the time to peruse the site. I have since purchased four vintage patterns, this one, being number 5.

it's pretty thrilling, a virtual treasure hunt, and for once i get to own something vintage.

like i said in an earlier post, being navajo is a bit cumbersome at times. with all the taboo and traditions i try to abide by, being a vintage lover has limited me from buying actual vintage wear to settling on vintage patterns that i can sew myself.

old girl in the red jacket is looking fierce, i must say.

it seems summer just stopped by for a visit, the chill is definitely in the air. i've got big plans for wool jackets and very excited to hack up a couple of pendleton blankets! 

i anxiously await your arrival.

weekend fun!

We stayed in the city this weekend.

saturday was a day filled with jammies, cartoons and sewing. i'd say pretty uneventful.

Sunday was wonderous!

we started with our sunday ritual of breakfast at Frontier restaurant. which still has retained most, if not original, design elements from when it was established waaaaaay back in 1971. Not to mention, the food is delicious! stop by there sometimes, you'll join the likes of my family and even Man vs Food!

next we headed on over to the flea market. usually i cringe at the thought of walking aisle after aisle in the sweltering hot, but this time, i made a plan.

I always read about people finding vintage patterns and fabrics on their flea market trips so, i set out to find my treasure.

Instead, i walked away with this..

a box of random 45s
oh those 33s!


i'm a nerd for turntables.
this behemoth weighs about 10 lbs and as soon as we got it home, we broke the needle XD TALK ABOUT EXCITED!

i also found some fabric and a couple of old sewing machines, one was a SIGNATURE brand for $20. didn't buy any of it though.

i love my culture and being navajo but sometimes it becomes a little cumbersome when you're a vintage-lover.

namely when you find something like this...

WOOL sailor jacket/shirt/sweater?!?!
I could've cried! ;)

circle skirts
i always knew mom was psychic

rez interest

Run to the East Trailer from Run to the East on Vimeo.

There seems to be a lot of cinematic interest on the rez, probably nothing new, but here you go.

delusions of grandeur

While I had envisioned greatness for those 2 yards of seersucker
there just wasn't enough
but holds it's own as my go-to skirt
i could wear everyday
and sometimes do
