i rode my bicycle [backwards] passed your window last night

But for the freakishly cold weather, and the hat lady vendor who must have repeated “Get a hat, get ahead” about 1000 times to passers by, and within ear shot of us, Stacy & I had a fun time selling vintage clothing last Sunday at the Long Beach Flea Market.  I wore one of my all time favorite vintage sweaters, a treasured gift from Mikey, who gave it to me when I turned 19 years old.  She found it at the thrift store, of course. It features a lanky gal with flowers coming out of her hair, riding backwards on a bicycle. I think it pretty much sums up my personality.






Fancy Disaster & Nakedcowgirl Vintage will be selling at the Long Beach Flea Market next month too, so if you missed out on this one, and you live nearby, you’re in luck.


Outfit: vintage 70s suede jacket, 70s sweater, vintage olive-green skirt, vintage Bass oxfords (thrifted), book necklace (etsy), Rodarte for Target tights. 


  1. when i saw the pics on flickr, i was afraid you were modeling the sweater for sale. i'm relieved it's still where it belongs!

  2. These photos are so nice, the first one is just amazing!!
