This won’t be the first time I’m demonstrated my finer ability to count. I just realized that I never got around to wearing item 30. Technically, what we have hear, folks, is a 29  for 29. Since I’m probably the last living remixer at this point, for the sake of just gettin’ it done, I’m calling it a done deal. It’s been fun but I’m ready to chronically repeat again. And wear some new things, too!

It was a little quiet this weekend because I joined some fine ladies in Las Vegas for Style Nation 2011. It was very exciting! Typically, I’d be snowboarding but what’s life when it’s always predictable? The lovely Loudmouth has elaborated a little on the company we’re keeping. Don’t worry, there will be a full report shortly.

30 for 30 Winter, day 4. It’s a wrap!

Wrap me up

Playing up the curls again

Roses and blue buds

Friday marked a preview of location site outfit photos. My hope is to get out of the office once a week and take some pictures with a coworker of mine who happens to be both a fantastic artist and photographer. I’m looking forward to it though I must admit it felt weird not to be taking my own photos. You’d think I’d be more relaxed not having to deal with the equipment. I’ve discovered that I’m more comfortable camping it up all on my own, even if it makes me look like the crazy neighborhood lady.

The wrap top I’m wearing is interesting. It can be worn numerous ways. I’m wearing it backwards with the ties in front almost mimicking my fourth grade sweatshirt-around-the-hips style. I like going back in time like that.

On a different note, I wanted to let you all know that two birds is having a special Valentine’s Day event. If you’re in the Minneapolis area you might want to check it out. 

As you know, pop-up shops have been all the rage lately. two birds has been hosting vintage pop-up shops since 2009, and has now collaborated with Salvaged Strawberry and Salon Stella to do a Valentine’s sale and styling event. Salon Stella, in Northeast Minneapolis, is hosting the two vintage vendors and we plan on selling a complete package to our customers. People can come in and get their hair and makeup done (by appointment), and then shop for Valentine’s gifts and outfits. All the vendors will be on hand for free styling advice. We are avid vintage collectors and will have plenty of merchandise on hand, including clothing, jewelry, purses, shoes, housewares and artwork. The sale will be perfect for men and women alike who are looking for the perfect one-of-a-kind gift and/or the perfect outfit for their Valentine’s celebrations.

The sale will be held February 12 and 13 at Salon Stella, which is located at 654 19th Ave. NE in Minneapolis.
More details, including a sneak peak of items to be sold are included here.
