I Fink U Freeky

After a few weekends of being housebound I was so happy when Chris said he would watch Peetee for a few hours so I could go have brunch with Cristi and shop a little.  Simple pleasures people, simple pleasures:)
Like finding this 1940's Hungarian embroidered bag.  I saw one like it on etsy a few months back that sold for $90, mine was $10.  It's always worth waiting if you really want something at a good price.

 Cristi even found a dress too.
 Ain't she hot in this photo?!?!?!
 For breakfast it was fried chicken and waffles, no pictures because we were HUNGRY!
 I also found this sweater for $6, made of a blended wool, warm and comfy.
 Rocking our Kiss Me Kitty leggings.
I also found this great needlepoint.  Peetee is still recovering and melting my heart daily.
May 25th Cristi and I will be seeing Die Antwoord, to say that I am excited would be a GROSS understatement.  I plan on dancing my ass off.
Hurry up and get here!!!!!

You deserve that Die Antwoord gig so much, what a traumatic time you've had since you told me about scoring those tickets.
The pair of you are looking gorgeous, love the bag you scored and that cheeky jumper with the strategically placed stars. The KMK totally rock my world (and so do you).
Big hugs to Peetee - the gang send their love!)
Love you! xxxxxxx

Vix is right, this gig is JUST what you need! You deserve a night of insanely loud music and crazy dancing, it will be therapeutic!
I always love to see you and darling Cristi having fun together and looking gorgeous in your KMKs! What a great find that bag was, I adore it, and Cristi's dress too. I just had a quick peek back to see what Vix meant about strategically placed stars... NOW I see! Nipples ahoy!
Give Peetee a kiss from me. Love you! xxxxxx

AHHHHHHHH I CAN'T WAITCAN'TWAITCAN'TWAIT!!!!!! I've already told my husband and friends they best get out of my way! And I'm drinking......a lot. So if you see me, you better tackle me and the same if I see you! And I just choked because to say I love that sweater would be a huge massive understatement. If you ever decide you hate it, you let me know! Glad you got out you deserved it!! AND THIS WEEKEND IS WHAT??!!! Dang I'm so excited too!

I Fink U Fun!!!

This shade of green is so wonderful on you! You girls had lovely time, and it looks like more coming - so happy for you, Krista!

The embroidery purse is so cute! I have a Hungarian box in my collection with this design too.

Hugs to Peetee! xxxxx

Beth Waltz said...

Krista, I always enjoy seeing your joyously colorful hair and clothes, knowing there's no possible way I could wear any item except perhaps the shoes. That Hungarian bag is an entirely different object of envy, however!

Loving pats to Peetee, sweet lad.

Sana said...

I just discovered your blog, I'm absolutely in looove with your original style!! xoxo

Helga said...

Cristi is hot in every photo!!!
Chris is a darling to give you a much deserved break...and that BAG!!! Feck me, I love it! He must have known an awesome bag was out there waiting for you!!! Love the sweater too, but hopefully it's getting too warm for it!

You two are hot gals! love all the goodies, the embroidered bag is divine! the gig is going to be awesome, a night of dancing with Cristi sounds bloody brilliant - lots of love and hugs sent to Peetee (and all of you!) x x x

Pull Your Socks Up! said...

Dear Krista it's wonderful to see you enjoying a day out with Christi, you certainly deserve it! Your new bag and sweater are incredible and what bargains! Peetee is looking stronger, I hope he's on the mend. Adore Christi's new dress and you must know I will be living vicariously through you when DA come to town - I'll be forever grateful to you for introducing me to them, they changed my life! Xxxxxxxxx

Nothing like some hot and sweaty dancing shake off the funk! The little Hungarian purse is very cute (and red!!) and I love the pink and green skull sweater. I don't think I noticed that Cristi had purple tips on her hair before - they look fab, and the parrot pattern on her leggings is one of the coolest I've seen. Such pretty colours!

Hope Peetee is getting stronger every day.

Rella B said...

That green and pink sweater is a great score! It looks great on you. Best wishes for Peetee's continued recovery and have a fantastic time at Die Antwoord. Did you see the new video Pit Bull? Weird as ever!

Tammy McGill said...

I love your sweater!! Can't wait to hear about that show. I hope peetee is at least feeling a little better.

Francesca Edesia said...

That is really selfish of you to eat that chicken without putting pictures! Now I'm curious! You both look so cute and goofy. I want that bag by the's red, and you know how I feel about THAT color:) You're right about waiting for the price to go down. Last year I saw these pretty vintage-style shoes in a shop here, they were just perfect for my daughter, who is a vintage addict. They were 130euros so I thought that were just too much. I kept going back about once a month to see if they lowered the price. They finally did in April, when it became too hot to wear those shoes. 50 Euros. Well, I bought them. Italian made, real leather and all the's not easy to find vintage shoes that fit, and online it's Always risky, so I bought them. She'll wear them next winter:)

Nat said...

Oh my gawd! I can't believe you are going to see Die Antwoord :-) They are hilarious and a real blast from my Southern African past!
So glad you are finding some little snippets of happiness... you are looking gorgeous :-)

thorne garnet said...

yes, it is the simple pleasures. Hanging with your buddy, buy oddball stuff and eating freaking chicken and waffles!!! How Mildred Pierce of you.

Meghan Edge said...



You look fab. I agree, it's the little things like coffee in the morning or voice chats with your BFF. Or thrifting.

Sheila said...

I love that the "teeth" in the sweater look like tentacles - very Lovecraftian!

I give you fair warning, if you bring that bag to the UK with you, I'm going to have to rugby tackle you to the floor and nick it off you, K? It's so beautiful! And so are you and Cristi. Good to see you out having fun together. Xxxxxx
