SATURDAY WITH TOVA AT THE NITTY GRITTY

The Nitty Gritty is one of my favorite stores in Louisville (even better it’s next to one of my favorite restaurants, Lynn’s Paradise Cafe). Located on Barrett Ave, this vintage store sells all sorts of goodies ranging from cat-eye glass frames to roller skates, gold beaded high tops to airplane and buggy shaped belt buckles. When I was living at home, it was always a treat to have my mother take me there and I always tried to go as much as often. Each time I’m there, I make it a point to buy a button (or several – my whole collection stems from there). One time I found a pair of gold shoes! They were practically glued to my feet all through junior year of high school. (Now they contently sit in my closet, proudly adorned with Clinton Kelly of WNTW’s signature).

For some reason, Tova had never been there before (!). So Saturday we grabbed our wallets and I grabbed my father’s car and we drove to the holy land of Louisville that is The Nitty Gritty. Tova was beside herself. I was smitten to be back. Even better, the owner, Terri, remembered me! I was happily surprised. With every store I enter, I enter with the hopes that I will someday become a regular; where all the workers know me by name and occasionally grant me a special gift. And it happened! Terri graciously let us take a button each, one that made my heart beat scary fast as soon as I saw it (Stay tuned to see).

The Nitty Gritty is not just a fabulous store, but my vintage-filled home away from home.

Thank you Terri! Going to wear it everyday next semester.

Success!:Tova’s rainbow bloomers and my Tina Fey button residing harmoniously in the grass.

CURRENTLY LOVING NO. 3

Excited to hear the rest of her new album.

Became hooked last month. Since then, I’ve been leaping and twirling all around my apartment, wishing I were as crazy good of a dancer as Abby Lee’s girls (Chloe is my favorite). Rewatching every episode as we speak until the new season in June.

I wish I had Instagram so I could take beautiful pictures even when I didn’t have my camera/without having to lug my camera around.

 Biscuit dress by Caitlin M. Shearer. Want!

A show I could watch over and over and over again.

Love Tavi so much. Growing my hair out so I can do this everyday for the rest of my life.

WEBSITE OF THE MONTH: COLOR ME KATIE

Katie Sokoler is one of those people I wish I could be/be best friends with. Not only is she adorable, but dayum creative. She paints, she draws, she photographs, she makes streets art, and she does things that make people smile (like dancing with strangers or fun public pranks with Improv Everywhere). Plus soooooo much more. And she’s got a crazy cool apartment to boot.

Katie is one of those people who never seems to be down, who’s always loaded with infectious positivity. I’m always excited when she posts because I know it will be colorful and fun and bursting with happiness. Whenever I read her blog or look at her pictures, I immediately get the urge to jump around outside. I also vow to never wear black again, nothing but bright colors for the rest of my life.

…I guess not all of us can be like Katie Sokoler (good things she’s alive!).

VIMEO            FLICKR            MORE ABOUT HER

*Hooray for almost summer!*
