Avalon Ball – May 12th

The 10th anniversary staging of the world famous Avalon Ball kicks off this coming Saturday May 12 at 6 pm! Hundreds of your Art Deco and dancing friends have already made arrangements to be there on this auspicious night—don’t miss out!

There’s still time to purchase your advance admission to the most exciting, romantic event of the year and be there when we celebrate a decade of vintage magic at the completely restored—and simply spectacular—Art Deco Casino Ballroom. With a 10,000-square-foot dance floor (yes, you read that right!) surrounded by romantic ocean views, there is plenty of room to foxtrot, swing and tango the night away to the authentic big band music of Dean Mora & the Avalon Ball Dance Band.

Day 24 – Roll it Up

This video is on the long side, but I love what Cherry Dollface looks like and I want to remember this hairstyle. What do you think?

If you want to follow her, here is her information:


I’ll be honest, I still haven’t bought into prepping my hair, curling it, and using products, but over the last month, clearly most of these gals prep, tease, curl, and use product and the results are solid. I find that when I haven’t washed my hair in a while, or if I’ve been keeping my hair in pin curls, I don’t tend to need product anyways. Anyone else in the same boat?

This also reminds me that I need to find a great colorist here in San Francisco. I know there are lots of them, but who is going to be my go-to-gal? Any suggestions? He/She needs to have already colored hair like mine….I’d prefer not to train another one.


Summer Wheels

I recently found that I want a vintage bicycle, or something that can carry me from place to place in style. Haha, but where would I actually get to use this since I’m never home? Herrang!! Here are some fun pictures of bicycles that I recently found. Enjoy!!
