Happy New Year Wishes, Football Fanatics and a Wardrobe Post!

I just decided to combine all of these entries into one post. I am headed out the door early tomorrow morning. For a couple of days away from the computer, and I wanted to make sure that I wished everyone a Happy New Year!!

I just can't believe that it's going to be 2010 in less than a week! This year just flew by in the blink of an eye. I hope that everyone had a really nice holiday season and are looking forward to ringing in the New Year. I am looking forward to a good positive year with lots of new and exciting stuff.

For this year's celebration I will be heading to San Diego, to accompany my football fanatic husband and son to the Holiday Bowl tomorrow. This year our own hometown college; The University of Arizona Wildcats football team, made the cut- Go Wildcats!!

Of course, I will manage to squeeze in a quick trip to the beach (even though it's probably freezing), remember I live in a dry desert. Do some sight seeing and a little Vintage shopping. Believe me, I can do a lot in just 3 days! There seems to be quite a bit of events going on in San Diego for New Year's Eve, so I guess we will just have to see where we end up! Though I would love to catch the fireworks over the beach, that would be swell!!

After all is back to some-what normal, and the holiday craziness settles down. I look forward to getting back on a regular routine with my blog entries.

I wish all of you a very Happy New Year and I hope that you all have lovely hopes and positive encouraging thoughts for 2010!

So I leave you for a couple of days with a good old wardrobe post. This is what I had on today, my favorite color combination of red and yellow!

Outfit Details:

Yellow Vintage knit sweater- Estate Sale

Red Vintage pencil skirt- Desert Vintage

Brown 1940's inspired pumps- Mossimo ( an old Target find)


Bakelite bangles and earrings- Razzle Dazzle Vintage

I am still rockin the poinsettia flower in my hair, through December!

  6. Syd, have you been named a Queen of Vintage yet? If not, I really think a campaign should be started to have you given a coronation!

  7. Va-voom Vintage- Thank you lovely! Yes! I enjoy combining yellow with anything really. I guess I am just fond of that happy color, but yellow and red do unite very well....
