RSD recap!
I’d say I was over all pretty pleased with how I faired at my local record shop yesterday. people were lined up around the block way before 8 AM on saturday morning but when I arrived around at a much snoozier 11:30 or so, I only had to deal with about 10-15 folks waiting outside. I was most excited about the flying nun dunedin double reissue featuring songs from the chills, sneaky feelings, the stones and the verlaines. they only put out 2000 of these guys and the original double 7”, if you can find it, goes upwards of $200. I snagged the last one at my shop! and have already listened to it several times. SO GOOD. also managed to pick up built to spill’s first album, and my second favorite BTS record (tho admittedly one of the world’s ugliest album covers of all time!) which was NEVER on vinyl until now. gold vinyl to boot. so so happy to have this guy in my collection. other scores included a 7” of the stranglers peaches on green vinyl, the nirvana 7” of pennyroyal tea, and of course thee oh sees latest full length, drop, which they saved to release on RSD. 
misses were the devo live at max’s kansas city 12” and the REM unplugged sessions 1991/2001 which were long gone by the time I had arrived. guessing the REM 4xLP was super pricey so maybe I wouldn’t have ended up purchasing but man, it really sounded pretty spectacular.

dudes! olo’s violet/leather is currently 25% off!
I think I’ve gone through 3 of these now and I haven’t tired of it yet. it’s already pretty reasonable at $45, but with an additional 25% off and no tax, this is one affordable fragrance I don’t think you’re going to regret treating yourself to. 
see more here: olofragrance and enter promo code “crushed” at check out. through the end of friday. hop to it!

I wouldn’t say I’m someone who’s all about pop culture and/or in the know on what celebrity is dating whom, who’s recently preggo, or just went into rehab, again, etc. and I’ve never bought an us weekly or watched tmz for fun. I’m pretty much, not that interested. BUT, deerdana’s tees and totes may be an exception to the rule.
lets just say I never thought I’d be obsessing over a james franco tote bag so hard :/

officially booked my summer mini vacay this week and now having a hard time not shopping for several ladies trip essentials!
so I realize my getaway is not until JULY but… I just feel like a couple new dresses, pair of denim cutoffs, and a cute coverup might be totes necessary in the very near future. and unfortunately for my financial situation, what appears to be this summer’s most classic, comfy, and universally flattering dress from madewell, landed in my email this week… who doesn’t need this dress in their summer wardrobe, I ask of you? ughhh… :/

last night Jay and I saw a band that we never thought we’d be able to see together. we both listened to these records over and over again, before we met. and admittedly, rarely after. but seeing them live yesterday, sounding so spectacular, trying our hardest not to sing along super loud to every song, or squeal at the beginning of every first chord/note, because as every NMH fan knows, there are no losers on either of these albums. anyway, because of all of these reasons, last night was a really, really, REALLY good one.

calling all my incense loving hippie pals (or closet hippies)!
if you were super stoked on the incense I posted about last week, from blackbird, but weren’t so excited about the hefty price tag (paxton gate sells them for $34 a tin v. $28 retail at blackbird), I wanted to share a 25% off promo code that’s good through the end of the weekend. it will work for ANY of their 10 scents, and even better, if you’re ordering from outside of washington state, no sales tax! quite the deal guys. I finally ordered izba (woody lavender) and hibernus (honeyed wintergreen) and can’t wait for their arrival.
promo code: gqburnafterreading - good through the end of 4/13, so you can wait for pay day if you need to :)

finally watched the punk singer tonight (it’s on netflix instant!) and really, really enjoyed it. if you were ever a bikini kill fan, a le tigre fan, called yourself a riot grrrl at one point, or were a teen in the early 90’s, I feel like you will appreciate this doc. also, I think I will always have a bit of a crush on KH.

these beauties made by oakland’s own, lauren wolf, are currently 30% off until TOMORROW. in fact, all stud earrings at ofakind are 30% off for a limited time only. these guys just happen to be my favorite. they’re the kind of earrings that will never get old, that you can leave in for weeks and always look effortlessly stylin. a super light green amethyst paired with a tough, oxidized silver setting. if I hadn’t done so much tipsy online damage over the weekend I would be seriously considering!

heads up ladies, my favorite black jeans are just $60 at anthro right now. not bad for a pair of jeans you may live in. they call them “skinny straight” for obvious reasons - they’re a slightly skinnier version of a straight cut. a super soft black/grey denim with a lot of stretch and generous sizing so I’d definitely consider sizing at least one size down. these are the only pair of jeans I own that I seriously feel like I could sleep in, comf city. :)
