Saturday Inspiration

Today, everything is inspiring me. Maybe it's the weather,or it could be that the trees are starting to get their leaves back. The flowers are blooming and I'm loving the spring more and more each day. Here are a few pics from various sites that inspired me today.

This post is short for I have a lot of photographing to do. The sun is bright, and is shinning through my bedroom window, beckoning for me to enjoy another beautiful day of my life.


Hope you all enjoy your weekend!!

Flyy Day The "CTV" Edition

Allow me to reintroduce CTV! As most of my readers know, I've spent countless months on preparing the launch of my online store called Chai Tea Vintage on 1-1-11. Unfortunately, that didn't happened. I am such a perfectionist when it comes to presenting things and as much time as I spent on preparing the store, I felt that it wasn't right so I never opened. However, five months later (May 1st,2011) I will finally open the store!! Yay!! I know in my heart that I've selected some pretty awesome merchandise. Most pieces were gifts from My Grandmother, and her friends, so you know they will be stunning. I chose not to sell through etsy as well. (Which was also a tough transition) Finally after all the sweat and blood (ok ok no blood) lol I am ready to start this new adventure as an online store owner. I'm sure you all have been seeing a few of my pieces in stock for the S/S & A/W. I am so anxious & nervous to do this but it has to be done. I've always wanted to own a boutique and I believe that starting one online would be a start to something wonderful. Wish me luck!! Also, make sure you all buy buy buy!!


I believe in me!

Spring Dreaming "Wishlist"

I told myself to never write "Hi Guys" again! It's soooo played out to me. So I decided to switch it up and write "Hi Gals & Guys" lol. Do you like that better?lol oh gosh nevermind don't respond to that.

My wishlist grows by the minute whilst browsing the internet everyday. I think by updating the things I'm lusting over, someone would surprise me with them. (hint hint to anyone out there with a buttload cash) lol

Here are my current obsessions
A C√ČLINE 3306 Dark Coffee Shiny/Croc Veins Leather

Hot Red Pants- as seen here on Kate Bosworth (Her's are Valentino)

Rebecca Taylor Ruffle Duster Trench

YSL Split-front two-tone cotton-canvas skirt (Aren't you in love with the asymmetric pocket?)

Alexander Wang (One of my FAV designers He's a freggin Genius)Cotton-poplin handkerchief dress

A TRIP TO PARIS!!!!!!!!!!!

April Fool's Day :p

The First Of April! Is it me or is this year flying by? Gotta work harder to make my dreams come true. Everyday is another day to progress. Well it's 1 am and I have Sammy up talking his head off of his shoulders. (Which is nothing new) lol He just told me to start a countdown to his special day which is April 19th. I literally do not know what to get him :s...Please don't tell him ok? shhhh!!! I'm taking a break from measuring and steaming my merchandise. I can hear my bed calling my name. I feel bad for ignoring it :( Enough with the babbling already. Here are a few photos Sammy took of me doing what I do best... As my store is coming along I hope you guys are just as ecstatic as I am. Happy Flyy Day and I hope you all have a great weekend!!!
