Friday Favorites #78

Thank goodness it's Friday.  This week was kinda rough (maybe because the holidays are all over?), but here are some things that brightened up my mood over the last few days:

Barbie has kind of a negative connotation these days, and I absolutely understand why (between the unrealistic body proportions and the lame career fields, it's no surprise she isn't seen as a feminist trailblazer)... but that being said, I will always love Barbie with all my heart.  This Barbie-inspired line by Wildfox is what pastel Mattel dreams are made of.

(I mean, the birthday sweater is VANILLA SCENTED!!!)

This coat is pretty Barbie-esque, too (and very Valentine-y):

Truly, the '90s are back in full-force, and this iPhone backup charger is sparkly nostalgic goodness: charger
I could use a bit of sparkle in my life right now... and these Kate Spade gold glitter glasses(!) would certainly do the trick.

Speaking of Kate Spade, this hot air balloon skirt from their newest line is adorable:

And of course, I'm dying over this coordinating hot air balloon purse (and a couple of other fun novelty bags I found this week):

This red dress is so darling!

Good news, Twin Peaks fans: there is an iPhone case that not only looks like Cooper's tape recorder, but it will apparently turn Siri into Diane?  I can't tell if this is real or how it works, but I remain hopeful.  You can get this phone case here.

I adore these three dresses from Pinup Girl Clothing (two are coming soon):

I love all of Sara's artwork, but this Marie Antoinette piece is one of my favorites:

Someone please buy me this sweatshirt:
Revamp Vintage has a ton of amazing pieces, but goodness, I'm going ga-ga over these green beauties:

And here are some links I loved this week:

I can't possibly be the only one who gets incredibly nostalgic for computer games from my childhood (even though they gave me anxiety)... did you know that over 2,500 MS-DOS games (INCLUDING OREGON TRAIL AND CARMEN SANDIEGO) can now be played online?!  Check out all of the titles at the Internet Archive

- I loved this piece about breaking up with your breakup.

This piece on 21 Oddly Satisfying Disney Moments is SO spot-on for me!!  Numbers 6 and 10 were some of my favorite animation moments as a child.

Evidently, Joni Mitchell is modeling for Saint Laurent, which is pretty cool.

And finally... this list of 15 places in London for afternoon tea pretty much sealed the deal that I need to go there... especially since our one local teahouse just experienced a bad fire!  :(

That's all for now!  Have a great weekend!

  1. I didn't think novelty bags could get any better, then I saw the hot air balloon! That bag is the thing of dreams! xx

  2. Kate Spade always makes the cutest bags! I was dying to get that take-out box one they were carrying for a while. If only they were within my budget! :)
