Roping Up Some Christmas Spirit

Knott’s Merry Farm is in full swing at Knott’s Berry Farm, and over the weekend a group of my gal pals (plus Patrick) and I went to enjoy all of the sights and shows. I’ve wanted a steer head jacket for years now, but they aren’t exactly a dime a dozen. The first one I […]

Birthday Fiesta

Over the weekend one of my friend celebrated his birthday, and with his Mexican heritage he encouraged his friends to incorporate Mexican elements into their ensembles for a visit to Disneyland, and while I never really need an excuse to break out any Mexican influenced garments, I do love a good excuse! Outfit Peasant Top: […]

Fall Dapper Day

Dapper Day, the twice annually event that both well dressed folks and Disney lovers look forward to every year, was last weekend. Last fall Dapper Day I wore a western ensemble with slacks, and I enjoyed that so much I decided to go with a similar outfit, and as the weather was quite cool, Patrick […]

Cowgirl Coven

With the move, we’ve been unable to really do anything for Halloween at the house, which is a bummer, as I adore Halloween! So I’ve been trying to squeeze in visits to Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm to enjoy their Halloween festivities as much as possible. Over the weekend we did just that with a […]

Daisy Jean Brooch Review

Recently I was contacted by Daisy Jean Floral Designs to review new items from their stellar Halloween collection. Now, I’m always on the hunt for new Halloween themed jewelry, so I was super excited to take a look at their collection. I selected the “Witch’s Flight” brooch, and the “Winged Accomplice” brooch from the collection. […]

Spooky Hillbilly Chic

We’re almost all moved into our new house, meaning we almost have all of our stuff over at the house! But we are far from settled! We’ve been so busy I haven’t had time to blog about an outfit I wore a week and a half ago! Normally I like to blog within three days […]

Sleepy Hollow

Sorry for the lack of posts lately! This move went topsy turvy real fast due to the fire in the Anaheim Hills. I received a few concerned messages about our new home, which was sweet. What was funny is that our soon-to-be old apartment in Orange is actually closer to where the fire is, and […]

The Sixth Annual Tiki Day

Sunday was the sixth annual Tiki Day in the Park at Disneyland. Like Dapper Day, Tiki Day is one of the unofficial theme days at Disneyland, and is a time for those who love tiki culture and Disney to come together. I’ve been feeling the Halloween vibes a lot lately and opted for a darker […]

Spooky Saturday

Saturday was the first day of “Spooky Farm” at Knott’s Berry Farm. Spooky Farm is Knott’s Berry Farm’s kid friendly event, happening every weekend during October, and it allows for kids to dress up and trick-or-treat within Ghost Town, take part in a costume contest, and more. For me, even though I can’t do any […]

Wardrobe Shop Review

Recently I collaborated with Wardrobe Shop, an on-line retailer specializing in vintage inspired clothing, but with an emphasis on older decades, such as the late 1800s, the early 1900s, and the 1920s, an area I’ve been wanting to expand upon more in my wardrobe. Lately I’ve been feeling the whole 70s does Victorian, and putting […]

Country Rapunzel

Way back in April, during our road trip to Idaho, I scored a square dancing dress that was absolutely perfect for a Rapunzel Disneybound and I’ve been waiting for the perfect moment to wear it. That perfect moment arrived when I was invited to a Disney couples themed Disneybound event! So Patrick, who doesn’t really […]

These Boots Were Made for Walkin’

Last weekend Knott’s Berry Farm’s interactive guest experience Ghost Town Alive came to a close. The summer event was like a three month long, family friendly version of Westworld, and I enjoyed getting super dressed up for visits. I originally had much grander outfits planned for visiting during the last couple of days, but humidity […]

Stagecoach Ride

I love it when you have accessories that match and just come together and create a themed ensemble, which is what happened over the weekend at Knott’s Berry Farm. Inspired by my vintage stagecoach skirt and Knott’s Berry Farm’s stagecoach, I created a parasol featuring a Knott’s stagecoach. Outfit Peasant Top: Pinup Girl Clothing Skirt: Mystique […]

Old Trapper’s Lodge

Off the 101 lies Pierce College in Woodland Hills, and on its campus is a unique and downright bizarre sight, a collection of concrete sculptures depicting old west figures, along with a faux cemetery featuring rather colorful epitaphs. What is this exactly? Well, it’s the remains of Old Trapper’s Lodge. Built in 1941 by a […]

Zorro at D23

Over the weekend Patrick and I attended the D23 Expo, an event that happens every other year that is basically Comic Con, but just Disney, or rather Disney owned things, because Star Wars and Marvel are also represented. There are panels to watch, exhibits to see, celebrities to meet, and lots of shopping. Patrick and […]

Independence Day

Without getting too political, the last couple days have been rough, culminating in yesterday, with Independence Day. I’ve been getting back in touch with my love of the American Revolution, and recently took a quick visit to the replica of Independence Hall at Knott’s Berry Farm. Some of you may recall my visit last July, […]

Cacti Love

Last Friday Patrick and I went to Ladies’ and Gents’ Night Out on Magnolia in Burbank. The monthly event is like one big party, with food trucks, live music and lots of sales at the amazing shops along Magnolia. So I swung by some of my favorite shops, and then headed over to Pinup Girl Clothing‘s […]

Jackalope Jamboree

Some of you may already know of my love of the mythical creature the jackalope, so it was no surprise when Erstwilder released a jackalope brooch I just had to get my hands on one! Now unlike so many of my vintage loving friends, I’m actually not the biggest fan of Erstwilder’s stuff, as I […]

Yeehaw! Saturday at Knott’s

As mentioned in my last Knott’s Berry Farm post, lots of visits are planned this summer, because Ghost Town Alive is just too much fun. So over the weekend, Patrick and I went for the day. We’ve been having a bit of “June Gloom” recently, but I didn’t mind the mild weather, as it worked […]

First off, I want to thank those of you who commented in my last post about what you wanted to see on the blog. It was so wonderful to get ideas from you, as well as receive support for the types of posts I already do. It’s your positive comments that really keep me going. […]

The Return of Ghost Town Alive

Last summer, Knott’s Berry Farm did something that was nothing short of magical, and something I gushed about repeatedly here on the blog, Ghost Town Alive. If you were ever a fan of the original film Westworld, or have been caught up in HBO’s reimagining of the 1973 film, it’s easy to relate Ghost Town […]

Survivor Soiree

Once again, it’s been a spell. Well, when I mentioned feeling better last time, enough to go out, I basically expelled all my energy and ended up right back at square one with my spring cold. But now I’m feeling much better! And just in time to celebrate a very special event! Five years ago […]

Western Party at Paper Moon

Well, it’s been awhile, hasn’t it? I got laid up with a really wretched cold right after Dapper Day, and only recently have I began to feel normal. And thank goodness, because Paper Moon was hosted their Full Moon party last night, and it was western themed! Paper Moon is hands down one of the […]

Spring into Dapper Day

Last Sunday was spring Dapper Day at the Disneyland Resort. Recently I have scored some amazing vintage square dancing dresses, including several spectacular floral ones, so I decided to wear one of those for the day. All day I felt one part cowgirl, and one part southern belle. Which works out just fine, as Frontierland […]

Ticket to Ride

For my actual birthday, myself, Patrick, and a few friends spent the afternoon at Disneyland. I also decided it was time to do a Disneybound I’ve been working on for awhile – a Disneyland ticket book! I got inspiration for this bound from Match Accessories limited edition D brooch that was based on the D […]

Mad for Boysenberry!

For Easter Sunday, Patrick and I returned to Knott’s Berry Farm to enjoy the sights, sounds, and treats of Boysenberry Festival again. I also finally finished my boysenberry parasol! During Boysenberry Festival I had the absolute pleasure of meeting J. Eric Lynxwiler, one of the authors of Knott’s Preserved, an amazing book about the history […]

And Knott’s puts together some wild and crazy things for guests to eat during the festival, including boysenberry pizza, which was new for this year! There is also loads […]
