Opening in January at the Hollywood Museum in Los Angeles, California is the Batman ’66 Exhibit.
At the exhibit there is a ton of vintage Batman memorabilia, show props, costumes, and even the Batmobile.
The admission cost for the Hollywood Museum is $15, and there are several other exhibits to check out while at the museum, which I’ll write about in a future blog post.
Thanks for reading!

It’s getting so close to fall! I know I’m a couple weeks early before the first official day of autumn, but here it goes. The weather is almost cool enough, so here is some fall weather outfit inspiration.

Bangle bracelets are one of the simplest and effective ways of adding a little style to your overall look. I am a firm believer in the idea of taking the time to build up a plentiful accessory treasure chest. A good accessory can add miles to an outfit with very little effort. Adding a few bangles to your jewelry collection is an easy place to start.
Bangle bracelets can be traced back in history to 2600 BC in the Mohenjo-Daro settlements. A statue of a young girl was discovered in an archeological excavation. The statue, entitled “Dancing Girl” is a nude figure who is wearing an armful of bangle bracelets. Based on this evidence, bangle bracelets are noted as the first accessory of the human culture.
The bangle can be seen across Indian, Mayan, and Roman cultures throughout history and has come in almost every material imaginable, including: stone, glass, terracotta, shells, plastic, resin, and various metals.
With such a long standing history that the bangle has had, it is safe to say that this accessory isn’t going anywhere. Whether it’s day or night, or if you are wearing one or several; your arms are guaranteed to reach their glam potential when they are adorned with these little circular wonders.
Bangle on! 🙂
Classic and iconic, Converse are an asset to any wardrobe collection. From solids, to patterned; from fashion to limited editions, the variety is endless. Since 1908 the people at Converse have been styling the feet of the masses. Uniquely and unlike any other footwear company that comes to mind, Converse has successfully broken down the barriers of cliques and classifications. They can be seen gracing the feet of musicians, athletes, fashionistas, and the like. Young and old, and everywhere in between own (or have owned) a pair over their lifetime.
Whether low-tops or high-tops, worn in or brand-spankin’ new, Converse are unmistakably trendsetting, yet quintessential at the same time.

14th and Union is a company I just recently discovered at Nordstrom Rack. These were the first two pieces that I have bought from them and I can safely say that I know I will be a repeat customer. I love vintage jewelry and when I saw these bracelets, I knew I had to have them. They have a very vintage-esque look and I was able to mix and match them easily with a lot of the vintage pieces I already own…Which is a bonus! 🙂
Upon doing a little bit of research, I have come to find out the 14th and Union is not only a jewelry company. They design menswear, women’s wear, scarves, hats, shoes and yes..jewelry. I can not attest to the greatness of any of the other merchandise, but the quality of the jewelry is fantastic.
14th and Union is available at Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack

I love, love, love finding vintage jewelry, specifically necklaces. Most times I search out these treasures on eBay, such as the one pictured. But if you are lucky enough to live somewhere that has nicer thrift or antique stores and/or in a neighborhood where estate sales are plentiful, then you can often find some beautiful jewelry there as well. The advantage to adding a few vintage pieces to your accessory collection is that of originality. Most likely, no one else will own what you have. If you like standing out fashionably, this is for you. Another advantage is quality. Vintage jewelry was built to last. The only disadvantage is that of having to sift through the rubble to find your treasure. It can be time-consuming and tedious. But anything worth having is worth waiting for, right?! 😉
