Everyone who knows me, knows that my favorite movie of all time is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Hands down.
I have an eternal Willy Wonka crush. Seriously. I imagine we would run the chocolate factory and hang out there all day cooking up new weirdness.
So when I saw that it was playing in the neighborhood and on the big screen, I jumped at the chance to see it.
It was not disappointing at all. The theater was packed and it was great that so many people were into it. Young and old.
I wore the cutest little dress. Oddly enough, I look like one of those little twin girls from the Shining. Kinda funny but also creepy....
Really though, my dress is extremely cute! 1950's vintage piece in cotton with pleats and these little hearts all over it.
This picture was taken in one of the women's lounges in the Paramount bathroom.
The bathrooms there are the absolute nicest. The theater is in pristine condition and it was built in the 1920's. Going there for any reason is an absolute treat.

Today is the 40th anniversary of Altamont. What started out as a follow up to Woodstock was turned into a violent nightmarish scene.
If you have not seen it , and even if you have, watch Gimme Shelter. A well filmed documentary about the experience that ended a decade. The concert footage as well as the interviews are excellent.
I hate to relate such a sad event back to fashion but Mick Jaggers use of capes is truly inspirational. uggh, I really hated saying that but it's true. I became obsessed with having one like his .
sfist has a great article with pictures.

look to the stars, they'll tell you what to do.
Not really , maybe some guidance but the truth is the best astrologers and astrology will tell you that your best bet in life is to know yourself and never look to anything as written in stone. Life can give you guideposts and suggestion but it is truly up to you to live life in the best way you know how and see fit.
these are my favorites:
Aquarium Age - http://aquariumage.com/Free Will Astrology -http://www.freewillastrology.com/
Jonathan Cainer - http://www.cainer.com/
And as with everything - take it with a grain of salt ( really only a grain, sodium is bad for you )
Remember the lesson of the day - No one can tell you about you better than you.

I am oficially obsessed with jumpsuits, rompers, overalls, whatever you call them. The one pictured above ( image stolen from Style.com ) is perfect. It could be that it is the perfect garment and it plays to the eternal child in me that wants to sit on the floor with a box of crayons. I also have an obsession with ruffles, lace, patent leather mary-janes and white dresses - my best friends are a stuffed kitty, rabbit and teddy bear so this could be true. All that aside, it is truuly the perfect outfit. I will be constructing some for myself shortly out of cotton broadcloth and perhaps mens suiting fabric - also fucking pinstripes , YES!!

This is - Out Of The Closet.
It is the absolutely best thrift store I have EVER been to. Being that, I am not going to publish the exact location I frequent- Seriously thrifting Nirvana. That should not be spoiled. There are many locations in The Bay Area and Southern California and there couldn't be a better cause than AIDS Healthcare and prevention. It is seriously underfunded and always has been. AIDS and HIV affect everyone, not just the gay community. It is a very preventable and fatal disease and by shopping for great clothes at extremely low prices and donating those you don't need, you can help do your part. As far as charities go , this one actually makes sure that the largest proportion of funds possible actually go to the cause. Unfortunately many charity shops have so much overhead and administrative expense that very little ends up in the hands of those who need it most.
GO!! Donate!! Shop!!

Lord: it is time.
Command the last fruits to be full,
Who now has no house, builds no more.
