you can still win a $50 credit to the shop!  visit yesterday’s post for deets on how to enter. 
and i know what you’re thinking…”paige, why would i enter a contest to win $50 towards a shop that’s closing?” 

good question.  i have an answer…

people, i’m not out of vintage.  i have a guest bedroom full of it…coats, boots, bolos, dresses, pants, etc…it will be sold…either on consignment through another etsy shop or maybe even via my blog…so…i will not disappoint you.  i promise.  if you enter and win, you’ll be able to put $50 to good use!

oh…and if you’re on a budget, but really like an item…make an offer!

now go shopping!  ;)

sweet pants

you all know how much i love a great pair of pants…

check these out!

i found them hanging on the rack at the thrift store and damn near squealed with delight.

the color is to die for, they’re high-waisted, and perfectly tailored to fit my bod like a glove.

love

at

first

sight

i imagine that these are the kind of pants that would illicit awesome pickup lines.

“is that a mirror in your pants?  cuz i can see myself in them.”

or

“are you wearing a space suit?  cuz your ass is out of this world!”

the second one is my favorite.  hands down.

sadly, no awesome pickup lines came my way.

however, i did get some comments from coworkers…

“only paige could pull off polyester.”
my response – you KNOW it!
“i had a pair of those in 8th grade…”
my response – you were the coolest effin 8th grader, then.
“you remind me of peggy lipton from the mod squad.”
my only response was to do some saturday night fever inspired pelvic thrusts.  which was followed by a roll of the eyes from my coworker.
“saturday night fever!  show us your john travolta moves!”

so i did…

yee haw!

that’s all i got today.

the pants speak for themselves.

etsy photo shoot this evening!  stay tuned for new items!

oh and don’t forget…i’m still offering 20% off in the shop!
just add “MOUSEVOX” in the comment box at check out.
i will reimburse you via paypal after payment is made.

i know i know i know…all i’m doing is plugging the shop these days, but i have to keep going…the fire i lit [under my booty] is roaring!

and when i start to get a little burnt out (inevitable), i’ll switch it up and start posting outfits again.  this is how i roll.  back and forth, up and down, all over the place…i wouldn’t have it any other way.

some people knit or bake to keep idle minds and hands busy…i just pile a bunch of shit on my plate and go to town…stressing myself out, but enjoying the feast anyway.  (well that’s kinda gross.  i pretty much just made it sound like i enjoy feasting on piles of shit.  not just feasting, but going to town. sorry for that mental picture.  i can assure you, i don’t do any feasting.  and really, that should go without saying.  awkward.)  sooooo…back to filling my plate with too much and loving it…i’ve come to the realization that this is just who i am!  lost sticky notes and all.

guess what??  i’m leaving this evening for my little vacation!!  couldn’t have planned it any better…perfect timing, really.  looking forward to getting out-of-town and having no worries or stresses or expectations or…anything!  just fun and laughs.

i can’t focus at all today…eeeeeeeep!  so freaking pumped.

okay, one thing before i go…thank you so much to all who have purchased an item (or items!) from barefoot & vintage, in the last week or two.  i can’t thank you enough for driving me even harder to make the shop more successful!

don’t forget about the 20% MOUSEVOX discount!!  take advantage while you can.  offer only good until the end of august.

ps.  i’m going out of town wednesday evening and won’t be returning until sunday.  aside from the shop updates, you probably won’t hear much from me.

i did however, want to leave you with this…

and btw…those are my freshly, self-cut bangs!  not bad, eh?  probably doesn’t look like much to you, but it was a big freaking deal to me!  although, now i’m kinda obsessed and i’ve been snipping here and there since friday afternoon.  (perfectionist at heart.)  it’s like that eyebrow plucking thing that some girls get into…they pluck so much, they end up with no eyebrows at all and have to draw them in!

i hope i don’t have to draw my bangs on my forehead…

yikes.

baby’s 1st fart

i had a fabulous weekend!

friday night – cut my own bangs (thanks for the courage christina!)…then photos, editing, and a shop update.
saturday – slept in.  drank lots of coffee while blog reading, tv watching, and more shop updating…followed by a nap.  got off my lazy ass around 3 and went for a 4.5 mile hike/trail run (thanks for getting me out of my funk, steph!).  after said run, needed a bean and cheese burrito from my fave mexican place.  got home, rinsed the stink off me, watched diane keaton movies on lifetime, then crawled into bed.
sunday – up early for thrifting in ventura with my good friend aimee (had so much fun, huge!).  we ate breakfast at a quaint little french bistro, did some more thrifting, then headed home to laundry, house chores and more posting.  oh and more lifetime movies.  in bed before 11.  rare.

maybe not the most event-filled weekend, but i enjoyed it!

anyway, aimee and i came across a rad antique store while thrifting.  i didn’t buy anything (too expensive), but i did take some photos.

a blog friend recently inquired, “what do you do on the weekends?”

well, since WrW and i broke up, i’ve stayed close to home.  typically, i’m a homebody.  unless i have a reason to leave, i don’t.  as much as i love exploring, going to concerts, hiking, hanging out with friends, etc and whatnot….

i’m easily amused and entertained, so i’m good at home…even on the couch, with a book or a cheesy horror flick on syfy.

on weekends that i have my son, we either head down to san diego to hang with my dad and stepmom, or we stay close to home…usually watching episodes of spongebob squarepants (our fave) or maybe going to dinner and a movie.  occasionally, he spends the night at his best bud’s house.

so yeah, that’s about it!  as i said, i’m a homebody at heart.  i do love road trips though!  i’m contemplating going on a solo weekend road trip.  hmmmmmmm…i’ll keep you posted.

how do you spend your weekends?

ps.  there are many new items in the shop!!  and don’t forget the 20% off discount with code mousevox!
(i’m adding 3 more items this evening.)

happy monday!

early birds.

this outfit is entirely thrifted.

i’m wearing…
blouse – thrifted, vintage
tank – thrifted
skirt – thrifted, vintage
boots – thrifted, vintage 9 west (score!)

i have a confession to make…

i didn’t actually wear this out…anywhere.  not even to the mailbox or over to 7 eleven for a cup of coffee.

gasp!  i know…

i woke up pretty early on saturday to hit up some garage sales (yes, i know…i was supposed to be on a thrifting freeze, but i have an evil twin that i haven’t told you about and she’s the one who spends all our money, eats all the oreos in one sitting, dances drunk on the bar, hits the snooze button three times every morning, and has road rage.)  she is a pain in the ass.

anyway, i planned to wear this outfit, but as i walked down the carpeted stairs and onto the smooth tile of the kitchen floor, i damn near fell on my ass.  and if you’re a garage sale-goer, you know slippery bottomed shoes just won’t do.  in order to get to the 50 cent reader’s digest books, vhs copies of cocoon, kitschy lawn ornaments, and silver frames…you have to wear a good rubber soled shoe that will allow you to run past and shove through all the old biddies.

(i actually bought 4 reader’s digest books.  they’re VINTAGE!  don’t judge.)

dude, honestly, hardcore garage sale folks are looney tunes.

my first stop was an estate sale.  what is it about a garage or driveway full of cheap crap and used goods, that cause manners to disappear and grown adults to act like pigs fighting to get to the trough?

true story about the estate sale…

a van pulls up, a woman jumps out, she’s got her game face on.
no joke, she scans the contents of the garage, then asks about the furniture for sale in the house…when they tell her she has to be escorted in, she scoffs under her breath, heads back to the van and says (in a snotty tone), “glad i wasted my time on this one.”

wtf?!

lady…what were you expecting?

funny thing is, she wasn’t the only person who made snarky, rude comments about the contents of the sale.

early birds aren’t effin around, okay?

you better have your best shit out or else.

moral of the story.  garage sale-ing is a sport.  before the adventure…you better eat your wheaties, do some stretches, stock up on hand sanitizer, and be prepared to get in a cat fight over a bruce springstein cassette tape or milk glass vase.

cuz it’s bananas.

ps.  i’m thinking about putting the skirt in the shop.

anyone interested?

let me know.

oh!  and don’t forget about the discount i’m offering!

20% OFF WITH CODE “MOUSEVOX” (at checkout)

happy tuesday.
