Okay well first of all a bunch of things happened before I got to doing this...
We were on an "emergency stop" at DisneyLand. We had eaten so much for lunch that we wouldn't have felt okay with ourselves if we didn't "walk it off".... so why not at Disneyland!!?

When we got back in the car on the way back I noticed my RING was missing!! :o( I was so upset at that moment and just came to the fact that it was gone and I would have to buy a new one. 

On the way home... I thought "I hope it's maybe in my bag"... so just a few minutes ago, I dumped everything in my bag on my bedroom floor. ***took a picture***
But no ring :o(

Then I looked down in the other direction and THERE IT WAS!!! It must've fallen off sometime this morning??? who knows?'s back on my finger now!  

*it's the stack ring on top that says 'Jesus' ...yayyy! Glad it's not lost on the Mr. Potato Head ride or something!

So WHATS in my bag???
1. polka dot iPhone cozy that I got on etsy (earphones inside for emergency jam sessions)
2. keys!
3. gourmet detective (the murder mystery dinner theatre i manage) keys!
4. black vintage mini coin purse i got at a thrift store
5. elvis checkbook inside an orange mesh zipper bag (that also holds my quad color pen, business cards and chapstick)
6. samsung bluetooth egg
7. black glitter draw string bag that holds girly stuff
8. cream quilted style wallet from ForLove 21
9. red 80's vintage sunglasses from LaBomba
10. 1/3 full bottle of water?
11. Chinese coin purse that holds my pills and dental floss ;o)

SHOP of the week - Boston Bag Lady

Through the wonderful world of etsy... God ran me into a sweet sweet lady with the SWEETEST etsy shop! ***She has the coolest vintage trinkets ever (see above)! It was like going to an amazing garage sale or the ultimate thrift store! I had to have her be my very first interview!
Please meet Boston Bag Lady's very own... Sandy.

Briefly...Who the heck are you?
Boston Bag Lady is Sandy - a sassy and sarcastic 27 year old gal living in Boston, working as a graphic / web designer and vintage enthusiast. 

I indulge in: foreign flicks, museums, coffee / tea shops, thrift shopping, gossip blogs, eating sweets, art, people watching, rock shows & giggling.

What were you doing before you started Boston Bag Lady and what launched you into pursuing an etsy shop?
Before BBL, I was doing what I am doing now (design). I've always had in interest in vintage items and have slowly been collecting over the past few years. It got to a point where I decided that I had to start selling some items to make room for new collections.

How did BBL start? Where did the name come from?
Boston Bag Lady came after much deliberation. I wanted to convey my location as well as what I sold. Initially, I was just going to sell vintage bags but slowly my paper and ephemera collection started getting out of hand so I included that. Bag Lady also reveals a bit about me in that I can never seem to throw anything away and just love collecting random and obscure items.

I started BBL in January of 2008. I actually had three sales on my first day opening so that was very exciting. I'll be celebrating 2 years soon!

Who or what inspires you?
I receive inspiration on a daily basis from many different things: people, events, imagery, colors, music, art, etc. Just today, I was inspired by a print on a women's dress for creating some holiday cards.

If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life... what would it be?
Skinny jeans, simple tee, some sort of long sweater / cardigan and flats. Casual and comfortable, but still sweet and sophisticated.

Any style Icons?
Zooey Deschanel - She's a classic beauty that has a unique quirky sense of style that incorporates vintage clothing. She takes fashion risks and it is always fun to watch her ever changing style.

Jen Lula of JenLovesKev - Amazing style. Great blend of thrifted items and contemporary fashion. I always look to her blog for "Style Files" for inspiration.

Favorite movie line of ALL time?
From my favorite movie Amélie:

Man in photo: She is in love. 
Nino Quincampoix: I don't even know her! 
Man in photo: Oh, you know her. 
Nino Quincampoix: Since when? 
Man in photo: Since always. 
Man in photo: In your dreams.

POP QUIZ: You have classic convertible full of gas and the week off. What do you do?
First, I would have to hire a chauffeur since I do not drive (the one downfall of being a city girl). I would travel to Chicago most definitely. It's one of the US cities I'm dying to see.

Biggest vice?
People who huff and puff while waiting in line. Life is too short to get stressed about having to wait an extra ten minutes for something. People who do not give you personal space while checking out in line also drives me mad.

What beauty products do you swear by?
Burt's Bees Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil. It's essential. 

Okay so...your house is burning down (oh drats!!) what 3 items do you grab... fast style?
My computer, my purse and my mother's wedding album.

Show us three items from FancyCat Vintage that you love?

Love this Blue Western Twirl Skirt. Great color!

This dress is so fun. Love the blend of colors in the tie-dye.

This Schoolgirl dress is darling. I love how you added the white belt.

Your song of the day!
"Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga

It's been getting a lot of airplay and Lady Gaga is pure style!

Isn't she Wonderful!?
