This picture is terrible but it's a good depiction of how I feel in the morning, ha. This is a pre-coffee photo, and my eyes are obviously not yet adjusted to the light.

The shirt reads: "Another boring day in paradise ... Key West." It was a good find, although it was almost ruined at one point. I washed it with a green sweatshirt (another thrift store purchase, and one that I assumed had been washed many times before), and the sweatshirt bled all over my entire load of laundry. The yellow color of the shirt turned into a sort of puke green. Luckily, most of it washed out, but it still isn't as bright as it was originally. Still, salvaged.

Last weekend Mat and I did another Rock and Rummage in Toledo, Ohio. It was a good time, and if you get the chance to go to a Rock and Rummage, I highly recommend that you do. Check out the MySpace for more info: http://www.myspace.com/rockandrummage

Heroes in a half shell!

I am the worst at blogging, I know. I'm hoping that the summer brings lots of good outfits and lots of opportunities for photos. I've been busy re-watching the first season of True Blood (ha) and haven't had much time for the computer.

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend; I ate a lot and did go to some thrift stores but only got a couple things.

Anyway, 1991 t-shirt for the second Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (live action) movie:

This shirt was for sale for a little while but I decided to keep it for myself -- you snooze, you lose! It's pretty awesome and I like the TMNT movies more than I should probably admit.

I'll leave you with this:

What is up.

Today I wore this shirt:

Early '70s Fruit of the Loom gym class t-shirt. I really like the shade of green and it's soft as hell.

Only had to work a half-day today in honor of Memorial Day weekend. I'm hoping to get to some thrift stores Monday, but who knows.

After work, I stopped by a bike shop and then grabbed a cupcake at Just Baked:

I had no idea a cupcake bakery even existed near me until yesterday. Consider me a regular.

I'm in the process of fixing up a vintage Trek (and by fixing up I mean, I buy the parts and Mat and his friends do the work -- I don't know much about that end). The frame itself is gray but I'm going to outfit it with pink components -- pink tires, seat, chain, and crank. I already got the chain and crank, and I picked up the same grip tape that's on my Schwinn. I'm probably going to get some pink brake cables, too.

I can't wait to get it going, I'll be sure to post pics!

Rock and Rummage

Last Saturday, Mat and I participated in the Rock and Rummage 2nd annual Spring Cleaning Spectacular. There were 8 amazing vendors, + a DJ and ticket giveaways. It was a good time, and we were able to sell a lot of shirts. Here's some pics from the event, which took place at the Belmont in Hamtramck:

Our setup.

Showing off some shirts.

The best part, though, was probably the T-shirt I was wearing, which Mat found at a Salvation Army the week before ....


I lucked out -- the only reason the shirt is mine is because it currently fits me better than him. If that ever changes, I have to give it back. The shirt is so ridiculously soft I can't even tell you, and I love the color. Oh yeah, and, VAN SLAM.

Worn with some '92 Nike Sonic Flights, also Mat's find. He's had them for awhile but I finally got to wear them out. I'll post some pics of the shoes later.

Again I have been neglecting! Mat and I were really busy setting up for Rock and Rummage this past weekend, which I will talk more about in a subsequent post. For now, I want to give you a treat -- you've earned it.

Here it is, an authentic vintage Beatles shirt circa 1980:

I was in pure shock when I found this shirt. I've seen remakes, sure, but an actual vintage Beatles t-shirt? Amazing. It's printed on a Hanes 50-50 tee, so you know it's good. I'm not even a big Beatles fan, but this shirt is so awesome.

You may also have noticed a new addition to my arm; perhaps I will most more about that later, too.

In the meantime, I hope everyone is having a good week. Go see Star Trek!

I'm Sorry!

I'm sorry for neglecting the blog... I really am back! After this week, I should be able to post more. Here's a shirt I wore last week to go out to lunch with my work:

Mat actually found it, he has good taste. The front has a bunch of buttons so you can button it any way you like, and the collar folds over (should have taken a picture like this). I started off leaving a few buttons at the top undone, but then I buttoned it all the way. I'm not sure which why I prefer.

I love the back!

The best part is, it was only a quarter! And as far as lunch goes, it was delicious, and ended with a nice banana chocolate mousse. =)

So, more to come, hang in there! By the way, did anyone see Wolverine? Thoughts?

Bike Show

Sunday, Mat and I went to a bicycle show in Ann Arbor. We were hoping to come back with some new bikes, which unfortunately didn't happen, but we did score some new t-shirts.

This shirt is super comfortable:

His is even better, I'll try and get a picture. We also hit up the Value World out there and I found some good shirts, including a Detroit Tigers shirt and a 1985 Yngwie Malmsteen tour t-shirt. All in all, a good day.

I spotted a vintage purple Fuji last week at a different resale shop, but when I went to go pick it up, it was gone. I love my Schwinn, but I'm on the lookout for a second bike.
