Surf City USA

Just wanted to post and let you all know that I made it to Huntington Beach (a.k.a. Surf City USA) safely! Currently, I'm sitting in Starbucks using the WiFi to my heart's content after a very lovely, very filling breakfast at the Sugar Shack. A part of me really wanted to make the drive out to LB and have some good eats at Harbor House, but I decided against it for the sake of gas efficiency. I had a pretty awesome time out last night on Main Street. It was my first official pub crawl, actually. It started with dinner and a beer at Sharkee's where I met some pretty cool people, and then we meandered to Beachfront, and finally on over to Hurricane's to literally dance the night away. It was 2 or 3 in the morning by the time we got out of there. It was awesome. Good music, great people. Anyhoo! I'm working already and waiting to get into my place, so until then my connection will be a bit sparse, but the moment I can do a good outfit post for you guys; I will! In the meantime, I hope you guys are having as wonderful a time as I am and soaking up the last bit of Summer before school starts! Love you all! xoxo Kailee

Howto: 1940s/1950s Makeup for Every Day Wear

On my tumblr the other day, I received an ask from an anonymous follower who wanted to see how I do my makeup. So I thought I'd put together a video showing my step-by-step beauty regime just in case anyone might be curious; or looking for a simple, natural, yet still glamorous 1940s/1950s makeup look :)

Also, my truck is currently packed and I'm currently trying to pass the time until I need to go pick up Jonathan so we can head out on our Southern California road trip :)

That being said, I may be MIA for a few days, or until I can get my computer or laptop working! Hpe you enjoy the video in the meantime!

What I wore: Tuesday thrifting with the sis

Vintage shirt: Goodwill, vintage skirt: Thrift Town, shoes: Converse

So this is what I wore thrifting with my sister yesterday. This is one of my favorite new(er) skirts that I picked up recently, coincidentally on the trip before last to Thrift Town. I picked it up, along with another pencil skirt that I adore. I love the teal color of this one and the button and accordion pleats at the bottom hem on the back. This tee shirt has been one of my go-to pieces this summer. I bought a few years ago at the Goodwill in Huntington Beach, which I'm excited to frequent again when I get back. I love this outfit, partly because its so casual and cute, partly because of the colors all together.

You can also how my hair turned out a lot better here than the pic I posted before. I love how it turned out! For this who are interested, I followed this tutorial that I found on youtube:

This video has given me the best results, by far, for the perfect, easy-to-do, low-maintenance 1940s style. Tash certainly knows what she's doing! (And she's absolutely gorgeous to boot!)

Now to finish packing things for my road trip on Monday with Jonathan!
