This weekend I went on a roadtrip to San Francisco. Four of us in a my sister's mini cooper+one ipod on shuffle+multiple Taco Bell/McDonalds stops=a very good time! San Francisco was full of live music and good food. All in all, a fun trip.
Took these in the middle of nowhere on the drive back. Right off the freeway in a place called Altamont, specifically. It was there that The Stones played the infamous concert that apparently was sort of the end of the whole 60s peace and love thing (some serious violence went down). It's a coincidence that I wore the shirt!

I'm wearing vintage everything...I got the boots on Haight Street this weekend, exactly the style I've been wanting. I hadn't bought anything all day and was a little discouraged. Then, in the last store I spotted these! For a good price and exactly my size. They're actually kids shoes. One of the perks of having rather small feet is that every vintage shoe seems to fit me just right. These are a little tight and uncomfortable on the top of my foot for the time being, but I love them nonetheless.

Listening to: The Honeydrippers: Volume One. (a band including Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck). Favorite track: Sea of Love. I have three words to say about this song: Watch. The. Video. I find it hilarious for some reason, it's so 80s and random! Most people I show it to don't even laugh, but you can see for yourself. I personally need to watch it regularly.

I hate having big feet, I can hardly ever find shoes that fit me at thrift stores.
