"Bobby socks and a ponytail"

Accidentally took these pictures before I put on my red lipstick. Forgive the drabness of my face. 
I've been wearing quite a bit of red and brown lately; I love the new-to-me combo! 
dress blogged before here
Dress: ModCloth//50's Vintage Glasses: Speakeasy Vintage, Montclair, NJ//Lace socks: American Apparel//Oxfords: Endless
I've been chatting a lot with my friend Bob, the owner of Clash Bar, where I bartend. We've been chatting about my longtime dream of having a sock hop party. A couple of dude friends from Clash know of old doo-wop bands that we could get to play the night if we end up setting this thing up. It'd be so magical to have a band play all my favorite 50's & 60's songs, but I'd be just as happy with a DJ and everyone in attendance dressing up in their "American Graffiti"-esque best. I'll let y'all know if it happens. I hope it does, as I've been talking of going to/having a sock hop since I was about four years old. Of course there'd be a million totally bitchin' pictures.
I hope y'all are having a lovely week <3

P.s. Post title comes from this doo-wop song
P.p.s. I get to see my family in Texas on Thursday!!

  9. Very old school dude.

    I have a hat to send you. I think it will work in your wardrobe much better than mine. I need you to email me your address. Plus, I don't get good reception at my house, so if you call or text, I won't answer.

    1. A hat?! Oooh, cool! :) I love hats. You know I hate doing my hair. Wore a hat today, too.
      Damnit, no wonder you never text right back anymore. I hate your Indiana service. Grr.

    1. Me, too!! *Fingers crossed* Brogues are the best shoes ever - they go with everything and don't take up too much space when you pack them for trips! :)

  12. You look so adorable! I love the oxfords! I've been watching The Next Food Network star on Sundaynights and there's a contestant who reminds me of the blonde version of you! She's got a quirky style I love! Very retro! I think you would like her style too! I wish I was going hometown Texas in June so we could meet up but ticket prices are ridiculous. I'm going to try and make it down in July or August.

    1. Wha?? I need to google or watch this show you speak of! This blond better not be the cliche "dumb", if you know what I mean. haha I know I can be a bit ditzy but I take offense to dumb. LOL, I'm sure you don't mean that at all. I'm just teasin'. I need to google her like, right after I leave this comment though. She sounds like a cool chick ;)
      Yeah, we bought our tickets with plenty of time and they were still pretty high. Ugh. Oh well, there's always next time! Thanks for the sweet and thoughtful comment, love. ♥

    2. Just saw her (her name's Emily). She's sooo cute and stylish. Her voice is pretty funny and chatterbox-y as well. yes, I could see this reminding someone of me. Plus she has similar glasses :)

  14. THAT is THE cutest dress ever!.. and it looks so great on you!
    I think that you NEED to have this party! It's a life long dream that needs to be fulfilled... A while back, way back, I attended a 50's & 60's party (complete with Elvis impersonator & professional dancers) and I LOVED it (eerily, I felt so at home).
    Thanks for visiting me and I am SOO happy to be friends! Wish you the best in your visit with family Thursday!

    Happy Wednesday!

    1. Thanks, Dana! And I agree, it needs to happen, like, 10 years ago. I was gonna ask if anyone has been to a sock hop or 50's/60's esque party! How awesome that you've been to one!!!!! I'm so jealous! Not eery at all. I think that'd be like the main time in my life I felt like I was home; oh, I wish people could time travel. Anywho, thanks for the sweet comment!

  17. I love Montclair! I actually got the cutest dress from the UO there MDW! & The Petite Paris Cafe there has such yummy macarons! I'd love to set something up! I have a few job interviews for the next week or so, but once things quiet down we could totally strut the streets & check out the cute boutiques there :) fun! xo, Megs

    1. I figured you'd at least heard of it. It's one of the cutest towns in Jersey, I think. And not gonna lie, I just had to google "MDW." I feel a tad bit more cool now that I know what it stands for and can use it myself in the future now. :) And the UO in Montclair is the best! It's never packed and it's huge! We can totally set something up for around July if that's cool. I'm going to be out of Jersey for a while.
