Tiki Disco in Rockaway.

Here are a few photos from my day out in Rockaway a few weekends ago. I drove into Brooklyn and met up with my Wagner people. We spent the day on the beach and most of the evening at Rippers. We drank frozen sangria (mine was the only one colored green, not sure why) and danced our hearts out. I came home with a nice little tan and memories of a solid day of hang times with some of my closest friends from college. ♥

LOCAL • Lilly's on the Canal, Lambertville.

A few nights ago, Frank and I took a trip to Lilly's on the Canal in Lambertville, NJ. We ordered two orders of crab cakes, jalapeno poppers, and a chip/3-dip sampler. Then of course we had a slice of apple crumb pie for dessert. It was a little bit pricey (definitely not part of the Cheap Date series, haha!), but worth it. Everything was delicious. I really enjoyed the outdoor patio, too. When we got there, we were the only people sitting outside and it was so calm and quiet. I'd love to go back in the fall, maybe with a group of friends. Also, how great is that vintage-style sink full of ice and beverages? Love it!

Cheap Date 02.

Last week, Frank and I had a few hours to spend together so we decided to head down the shore. Windmill is the best. End of story. It's not exactly cheap , to be honest (about twenty bucks for two dogs, two drinks, and cheese fries), but it's cheaper than a sit-down dinner somewhere else. I was in a funky mood that day, and some hot dogs and cheese fries were exactly what I needed to get out of it! We drove down the shore, blasting music and enjoying the weather. Perfect.

Updates + Christmas in July Sale Reminder!

Hello, my friends! Today's post is going to be short and sweet, since Flickr is undergoing maintenance til 1AM. Oops! This week as been full of vintage shop work. I have so much inventory still to add to the shop, it's not even funny. I've been steaming and shooting vintage clothing all day today. My goal is to have the shop fully stocked by mid-August, when I return from Texas. I'll be in Austin for TxSC til the 5th, but I'll be back to work as soon as I get back. Are any of you guys going to TxSC, by the way? I'm SO excited. Last year was so fun and inspiring, and I have a feeling this year will be even better. I'll leave you tonight with a quick reminder about the Christmas in July sale • All vintage is 25% off + use code "CIJFREE" for FREE worldwide shipping on all orders! Crazy, huh? The sale ends on August 1st, so get to it! ;)
