Dp and I went to the Red Bull Soap Box Derby over at Piedmont Park Aug. 29 for the races, laughs, and then for lunch///
vintage shades, Target dress
the heat this particular day was so excruciating we stayed at the races for only a bit before hitting up a little mexican joint down the street. cold beer. m.m.m
the lava bowl was filled with chicken, cactus and a sweet sauce-you mixed all ingredients in a tortilla shell and enjoyed profusely.
never mentioned the fact that one day after work, drove up to Buckhead for a Dolce & Gabbana sample sale//&& like a fool I forgot my camera but snapped this one with my phone cam///everything was 70% off but that didn’t mean affordable, for example, the above photo. . which are retailed at 10,000 + some change. it was fun just trying on a couple things and looking at all the shoes that have walked the runways. none of which I could fit and/or walk in. . .the man running the show thought I would just looove these bejeweled slacks, he was right, they rule! as well as the paisley velvet number to the right-which were priced about the same. ouch.
found the motherload of my old bows and immediately started playing dress-up.
apparently Wednesday nights over at MJQ are off the wall crazy so Ashliegh and I headed there a couple weeks ago to see if it was all true////and YeS it is! the djs played every song that I would ever care to hear, break dancers busted their moves, and the crowd-Ashleigh & I in particular-threw down till they kicked us out when the place was closed!
vintage romper, Penny & Kenny gladiators, vintage assorted bracelets.
also seen HERE
the fun doesn’t start here either, this weekend was great! had a little mini vacation on Friday, after getting 1/2 the day off and heading to the Blue Ridge mtns. and yesterday did a little shopping at DSW and H&M, then headed down the street for a Luau for Wasabi’s 3yr anniversary with free food & Sapporo. good times.

Sounds like another awesome weekend!
Those top pics make me so sad the ATL summer is coming to a close. I saw read leaves on the trees today in Decatur- isn’t this early Fall for the South? What’s happening???
ps- love your MJQ outfit!

I love all of the colours used here! 70% off sounds so good and then you realise everything was fifty billion pounds to begin with and the happiness slips away. Sounds like you had fun anyway! :) x
