Shopping: Virtual Vintage

I have a thing for vintage. I know I'm not alone in this. Search the blogosphere--heck, search the entire world wide web--and you're greeted by a plethora of blogs, shopping sites, articles, and message boards all dedicated to the love of vintage clothing. Lately I've been suffering through some pretty serious withdrawal as I haven't been able to spend time browsing the cluttered aisles of my favorite thrift and vintage haunts (Goodwill, I miss you!

Has the impending spring season had an impact on your style?...

On the Road Again: Chicago

I'm not sure why I continue to torture myself in this manner, but I've decided to take the Megabus to Chicago to attend a friend's birthday celebration (woo-hoo!). Long bus rides are not my idea of a good time, but it beats driving: Tamia + long distance drive in unfamiliar territory = road rage of the highest degree. Plus, I'd inevitably get lost. Like, stuck in the middle of a cornfield in Arkansas lost. Yes, even...
