Come one! Come all! To Dalaga this Friday night! We will be celebrating a great matrimony between the lovely little Greenpoint boutique and The Loved One!! This winning combo has been a long time coming, Dalaga has always been a great supporter of small designers and jewelry makers, it only seems fitting that TLO should grace their clothing racks with their beautiful underthings! Come out for a night of drinks and treats and lingerie!

Wow you guys, I have been the WORST blogger this month!!! I don't know what it is, I'm just not feeling too driven about it anymore... or I'm just going through a lazy period, which happens to me from time to time. But thats no excuse! I last left off in St. Louis, but now I'v been home for about two weeks, and I have a whole new wardrobe with me! Thanks to Donnaland I have had a new dress to wear every day! And lots of pretty things for the shop. Which brings me to my next point, there has been a Golden Fur Vintage shop update! The first in like over 4 months! Sorry about that guys, I have been hoarding vintage!!! This is just a little one, I convinced my boyfriend to help me take shop photos today, and I could only get a bit out of him. I have about 40 more pieces to shoot and list, just waiting for the help of one of my lovely lady friends. So scroll down for a little peek at whats in the store now, and stay tuned the rest of the week! I want to dress you all for the holidays, and with 30+ vintage dresses waiting to go in the shop, I think thats something I can make happen!

So we have been in St. Louie for a week now, and still another to go! We have spent this last week completely organizing Donna's warehouse, making sense of the madness that is over flowing from huge cardboard bins. Apparently not too much organization had been done before, a bale would just get popped and thrown wherever. So we have ben digging through things and putting like things together.. ya know, fun stuff! And I ain't joking, it's like a treasure hunt! Especially when we get to keep goodies for ourself. Enjoy some more instagram photos below, because I haven't been able to take a single shot with my actual camera yet!
The most random grouping of stuff on Donna's table, and some hot babes that held our gin and tonics, who also lost their underpants with the chill of the ice!

So I have made it to St. Louis! We arrived in town yesterday, me on a flight from JFK and Sam and Courtney coming from western Mass. And today we got straight to work! The Donnaland warehouse is in part of the old Lemp brewery factory that went out of business when prohibition took hold of America. But I'm happy the buildings are still around because it's a really beautiful and creepy place. We spent all day going through big big boxes of vintage, sorting things out, getting rid of stuff that was not up to par, and just messing around. Oh and drinking PBR ;) Today was just the first day of two weeks here working for Donna, and after we get things organized in the boxes, we get to start opening bales! Stuff that has not been seen by human eyeballs for at least 35 years! Now, below enjoy some instagram photo taken by all three of us today, we did a whole lot of that too, hah!
Tons and TONS of unopened bales of clothing that have been that way since at least the early 70s. And here I am with the my two lovely friends and partners in vintage diggin' Sam and Courtney.
Sorting a big box of corduroy in my sweet new "rosie the riveter" jumpsuit from Beacon's Closet. And can you spot me in this mess?
Sam on one of our "dress breaks" since we get to take stuff home with us too :) And me, being happy
Lemp Brewery. And there is an example of a bale of leather and fur coats.
Courtney, hard at work! And me, scaling mountains.

After having a Halloween party two nights ago I want to have them all the time! I really love decorating mostly, it's too bad there aren't more holidays or special occasions to really go all out on. I do plan on keeping most of these decorations up for a bit, like the lights and the paper chains perhaps. Makes the place look nice I think.
Anyway, most of the people who came were new friends and co workers from my new store. There are twice as many people at this one than at my old one.. so having a party and inviting nearly everyone is a totally different experience hah. And with this group, you get people comming in waves every hour, because we work till 2am at TJ's so people were getting off every hour until then. I also don't live too far from my Trader Joe's so lots of people decided to come I guess. The last few stragglers left around 5am! And by that point Jeremy was passed out on the couch, but I was still going strong haha. I didn't get very much sleep this weekend, but it was the best Halloween I had in a while and the clean up after didn't turn out to be as bad as I thought it would be haha.
I made all the decorations except for that keep put banner between the rooms. lots of paper chains and bats.. strung some purple lights and lit a billion candles. switched out regular light bulbs for red ones, and black light ones too!
the morning after, had to brush through the huge knot what was the back of my head and fix up the curls a bit ;) gotta say, I love having big curly hair though.
the aftermath, I was going to count but then decided I didn't really care, and just wanted them out of my apartment cause it really stunk of beer in there!
