Last Friday I scored some new smashing vintage dresses , so I thought that it was only right to take one out on the town. My first thought was the Frolic Room, where the popcorn is fresh and the jukebox is full of great music. Joan was there, eyeing my dress. And Marilyn gave it a toast! Good times were had. There's a new place on the same block that sells $3.33 pints of beer (Dylan's I think), but that place has nothing on the Frolic Room. It's full of boys wearing flip flops and jeans and super awful music mixed with bad cologne. Give me a historic old Hollywood mural and free popcorn any day. Not to mention, they know how to appreciate a nice dress!

So, I have a little pretend game that I play. Here's how it works: I go on an auction website and look at the things I would buy if money was no object. My theme the other night was the clothes of my heroes. Here's what I picked:
Ritchie Valens Shirt
Patsy Cline's Dress
Buddy Holly's Cardigan
And his shirt (he had some amazing clothing)
And Elvis' really cool Beatle boots.
All items can be seen originally HERE .

Pure class, talent and inspiration. She will be missed and never forgotten. A true pioneer in so many aspects, and a wonderful example to follow.

I am wanting a ukulele so bad right now! I just want to play some 1930s tunes on it, how cool would that be? Besides, these ladies must have been on to something...because they sure look like they are having a lot of fun! On my list of songs to learn with my future ukulele: Dream a Little Dream, Lullaby of Broadway, Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen and My Baby Just Cares For Me. If I learn enough, I could totally be a one woman show! Ha ha ha ...Slow down Davis! Get the Ukulele first.

The Los Angeles Times currently has some pretty cool recipes online right now for Cinco de Mayo. But it was this pink wonder that really spoke to me. It is just so darn pretty, and sounds like it would be refreshing too. So drink up and remember the Battle of Pueblo!
