Kitsch Picks : Anatomical Heart Vase

My jaw dropped when I saw this Anatomical Heart Vase by Dellamorte & Co. I am a huge fan of Michael Locascio's art ever since I featured him on the blog and ordered Derek's Yule gift last year. Gorgeous, gorgeous work!

Thank you for reading!
(Thanks to Iris for pinning this beauty!)

Aloha Weekend!

+barkcloth shift dress: vintage +bangles, necklace, earrings: vintage
+hand carved wooden purse: DeTiki

With Saturday being National Mai Tai day and Sunday was a luau party at our friend's house, it was a Tiki weekend! I can never pass up a chance when I can wear one of my beloved barkcloth dresses and this blue one is making its first appearance!

I didn't have anything with these colors, so when I spotted this beauty at our wonderful local vintage store (Miss Josie's) I snatched it up. I used my trusty sewing machine to take in the armpits by an inch to give it a better fit and shape. I generally don't wear 60s shift dresses, but I think I am now digging this silhouette on me! 

My earrings are massive and I couldn't pass them up for only $2.00. Hey, it doesn't cost that much to look this tacky. *Wink* Not pictured : my blue eyeshadow that Derek said was a perfect compliment to the blue on my dress. 

Speaking of Derek, here's my main guy proudly wearing his Lava-Lava. His what? A lava-lava is a traditional garment worn by Polynesian peoples that consists of a piece of fabric wrap and rolled at the waist. Here's a little more about a Lava-Lava.

Today is Labor Day which means most Americans are bbq-ing and celebrating 'the last day of summer', even though the Autumnal Equinox is not until September 23rd this year. *Shrugs* It's just another typical Monday off for Derek and myself, but Happy Labor Day USA!

Thank you for reading!

Kiss My Woof Woof Goodnight

+t-shirt: Eddie Munster +vest & bat patches: Sourpuss Clothing
+skirt: vintage +creepers: TUK

"Kiss My Woof Woof Goodnight" is what my t-shirt says with Eddie Munster holding Woof Woof in a coffin. I love The Munsters, so this t-shirt happily was added to my ever growing black t-shirt collection. I swear black t-shirts multiply on their own.....

I think Derek would agree that I would need a t-shirt that says, 'kiss my Ice Bat good night', because ummmm, I don't know anyone that sleeps with three Ice Bats and an Ugly Ghost. Nope. No one.

Sorry Derek, no room for you! Haha!

So now you know my secret. Blog will self destruct in 3....2....1......*explodes with Ice Bats everywhere!*

Thank you for reading!

Bats on everything you say? I am totally okay with this! I need the batty cardigan in my closet, bats are a neutral, right? Haha!
