RIP Rik: I Loved Ye Well

I was very sad to hear that comedian Rik Mayall passed away last week. I loved to hate his character on The Young Ones, but later developed a serious crush on him after seeing him in Drop Dead Fred. I'm posting this clip of Motorhead doing Ace of Spades on The Young Ones as a tribute, because it's my all time favorite musical number from the show, and Rik himself leads it off and closes it (at least the way the the person who posted this YouTube clip edited it). RIP Rik. Gone way too soon.

Throwback Thursday: Acid Washed Denim and Perms

My big sister just posted this picture of herself on Facebook today for TBT, and I immediately asked her if I could repost it here because, well, just LOOK at those shorts! She was a professional ballerina back then, and could really pull of the high waisted look. 

As it happens, I've been listing a lot of vintage denim items lately, and they've pretty much all been flying out of the shop. I have more coming up very soon, just as soon as I can photograph and list them.

Music Monday: Thousands Are Sailing

I know it's a bit late, but I wanted to post this in honor of the day. Thousands Are Sailing by The Pogues is both dark and beautiful, reminding us of how and why so many were forced to leave everything behind and come to the US. Also, The Pogues = Kickass.

Went shopping today and came back more with fabulous vintage dresses, rompers, skirts, and tops. New Spring listings are coming soon, including an 80s Calvin Klein full skirt, TWO All That Jazz dresses with criss-cross backs, and an awesome IB Diffusion oversize polka-dot tee dated 1992. Yay!

Music Monday: Plastic Bertrand

Thanks to my brother in law for reminding me of this song last week, thus implanting and earworm that JUST. WILL. NOT. DIE.

So I thought I'd share.

You're welcome.
