Oh the Target shoes were a very recent purchase. Our roommate Audrey (nick's girlfriend) came home with them several weeks ago and I knew I needed a pair. Its hard to tell from the pics, but they actually have plum and black alternating panels on the front. They also come in tan and brown...and I think they were only 20 dollars:)

What gorgeous vintage things you have today...ahhhhh lovely!
This video - how fun, don't think I remember this one - but there is nothing like the muppet show...we got a dvd of the first season for my kids last year - they loved it - why aren't there shows like that on anymore?!!

Love that clip Gabbi - blimey very grizzly though:poison lemonade, trapped in the basement - you wouldn't get that now

Here's a couple of my fave muppet/Henson and related clips..

Lynda Carter

Supergrass

Scissor Sisters

Stevie Wonder

Pen Pen said...

That video was kinda trippy! :)
I love ur favs-esp the kittens and vintage wear! I JUST saw a dress like the black one with a bow, but the actual dress part was white-and it was a different material! I wanted it, but it was uber expensive. :(

Oh! and I wanted to say that I thought Katy Perry was ripping on Zooey when I first saw her too!! I've loved Zooey so long, and then I heard Katy on the radio and googled her. They look like twins-but they have differences. Zooey is like the more "serious yet quirky" twin who loves 20s, 40s, and 50s fashion, while Katy is more out there and her fashion is very 80s/40s)- I love them both now :)

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

That last "thing" the Lady Margaret. I want.

kirstyb said...

Hey Harriet said...

Love your taste! This is such a fun set of goodness! I really like the 'ring ring' print due to my obsession with old phones. And of course I adore Sam's Follies print...oh and I like everything here really. Love it all! :)
