Weekend Recap

Here is the My Daily Vintage: Weekend Edition!

First, let me introduce the new face on my blog: my boyfriend, Mat.

Here's what Mat wore out Saturday. It's a pretty nice v-neck and has three stripes on each sleeve. We aren't sure of the brand, but the shirt is from the '70s.

What really makes the outfit, though, is his belt:

I can't even tell you how jealous I am of this belt. Had I beat him to it, it would have been mine. But it does look better on him. The Budweiser logo alternates with the text.

Sunday, Mat bought Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe for his PS3, and since we pretty much played it all day, we dressed for comfort (and slight hangovers).

1984 Detroit Tigers American League Champs t-shirt.

Batman t-shirt.

The Batman shirt is from a Taco Bell promo for the Michael Keaton Batman that came out in 1989. It's still in amazing condition. I was obviously repping for my favorite DC character. Which, can I just say, that game is so fun. Rent it if you have the chance or like fighting games. The graphics are amazing and the fighting is really fluid. It's pretty sweet.

Today we are heading out to some thrift stores, so hopefully I'll have some good finds to post this week. I am also on a mission for some cheap khakis, because I finally got a job!

For those of you who don't me, here's a quick back story:

I graduated from Michigan State in May with my B.A. in Professional Writing. Ideally, I want to get into book publishing and become an editor. Unfortunately, my job search hasn't been going anywhere. Since I'm pretty much out of money, and I have to start paying back my student loans next month, I've been applying everywhere. I finally got hired to work at a Starbucks at Target. It's seasonal for now, but hopefully I can stay on, and even if I can't, at least it's money for the holidays. Eventually I hope to get to San Francisco and break into publishing, but for the time being, I'm happy to work anywhere.

Well, that's about all for me. How was your weekend?

Man, yes! I should have just went for it during the summer when I still had money. Now I'm broke =( However, the plan is, now that I'm finally working again, to save save save save save, and then move, job or no job!

Dude... I can't take it! I had that same EXACT Batman shirt when I was like, 8 or 9. Somehow it got thrown out and I've been so bummed ever since cuz I've never found one like it in any secondhand store :(

That's rough =(
Old Batman shirts are hard to come by! I thought about selling mine once, but just couldn't bring myself to do it! I have another shirt too that I'll have to post someday.
