Happy Monday Everyone! I had quite the busy weekend- just the way I like it. It always seems that as the weather starts getting warmer I have more things to do. I wish the winter kept me as busy! Perhaps I wouldn't hate the dark days so much if I had awesome plans. But I think most people are like me and they just prefer to hibernate.
On Friday night Steve's band Scale Model played a show at the High Watt with Tipper Whore. It was a great show and I was so happy that so many of my friends came to check out the bands. Nashville has a such a great local music scene!
I've been looking forward to Saturday for MONTHS! It was the Porter Flea at the recently closed Cornelia Fort Airpark. I was really excited for this one because of the new location. The airpark is super close to my house and it has plenty of open space. The previous Porter Fleas were held at Marathon Music Works, which is lovely, but the Porter Flea has outgrown it. The new location allowed people to walk around freely, find parking, and spend more time looking at all the awesome hand-made goodies.
Of course I picked up a few things as well and got to see some of my favorite people. I love that I have so many talented friends that sell their wares at Porter Flea. But don't worry, there will be a whole post up soon on all the goodies!
Sunday also contained much awesome as Steve took me to see Hall and Oates at the Ryman. I've always wanted to see them but I've never had the opportunity. Right before the second time Steve and I ever hung out, he took pictures of a Hall and Oates concert at the Ryman and I told him how jealous I was. He promised me he would take me to see them and boy, does that man make good on his promises. The show was awesome, BTW.
So I got this dress in the mail from eShakti and I thought it would be a perfect dress to wear to the Porter Flea. Add a few vintage elements to it and BOOM we have an outfit. eShakti is cool because they allow you to customize your clothes. You can change necklines, hems, and sleeves! Also, they ask for all your measurements (including height!) to make sure everything fits right. I have to say I was VERY pleased with this dress. The fit is perfect and I love the fullness of the skirt. Even better, the skirt is fully lined and has pockets! I have a feeling you will be seeing me in this dress more often.
Since this was an old airport, and there was still a runway, I had to pretend to be a plane, right?
