Date Night Outfit

Sweater & Tights: Target | 50s Dress: Mother Fletchers | Shoes: JC Penny

Every so often, the bf and I go into the city for a fancy dinner and drinks.  There is this cute Japanese restaurant that we both really love and that's usually our desired destination.  A lot of people give Detroit a bad rep, and while there is some truth to that, there are a lot of hip little places to gab a drink or eat a good meal.  I really enjoy seeing what's left of the old buildings and imagining what it must have been like in the 30s or 40s to have a dinner out in the city.

I might be a little late to the party, but.... I'm finally on Instagram.  You can follow me @livinvintage.

I tend to post there much more often then on here.  If you stop by, let me know, I'd love to follow you too!

WI Thrifting

One of my favorite things to do when I'm in a new town is checking out the local thrift stops and antique shops.  When I was in Milwaukee a month and a half ago, I visited two really large antique malls.  One was three stories high and it took nearly two hours to see it all.  Both Jesse and I found some real gems there, like this MCM pendent light.  It's cream with raised gold lines.  I haven't found a spot for it yet, but I'd really like to work it into my home office somehow.

I found this guy at one of the other antique malls we stopped at.  He was a steal of a deal at $9!  I've always wanted one, not just because I adore owls, but also because I have limited vintage fall/Halloween decor.  I kinda think I will miss Mr. Owl after Thanksgiving when I start to switch out the fall stuff for my Christmas decorations.  Maybe he will have to find a permanent home elsewhere...
