1. Who is the person that made you do the dumbest thing? What was it?
That's be myself really. For my Dad. I love making him laugh. I can't explain the story behind it because there isn't one. I just ran around a grocery store after him screaming orange juice. In my slippers. In a funny voice. But he was dying laughing & it was awesome.
2. What was the FIRST job you ever had?
You know how retro t-shirts with customized decals were all the rage a few years back?
So okay, they are still in style. Well, I was in on that in the 80's-- when it wasn't retro, it was just...well, the 80's.
I was 14 and worked at Shirtique, ironing on the customized quotes, logos or decals to order at a local mall. It was pretty sweet, & its still there. And I can still fold shirts like a superstar~*

3. When do you relax and how do you do it?
When Frankie says. Obviously.
But that's a whole other layer of nerd~*
4. Where was your most memorable date? Who was it with?
Well right now all I can think of is the anniversary dinner I just had with my husband a few nights ago! We aren't get-dressed-up-and-go-out people, but there was this fancy restaurant we wanted to try. So we got all Madmen-tastic & had a smashing dinner & a lovely time~*
5. Why do you blog?
As a creative expression. And as a way of meeting fantastic people like these:
Thanks Dawn for the questions!!
Okay Lady Lund, you're up!!
And on a completely unrelated note, you can still get $40 off your first order at eShakti using the code:
I am currently drooling over several of their dresses. Which isn't a pleasant image, but is sadly true...
I just adore modern-retro dresses. I'm an addict. And I can't see paying hundreds of dollars for some twee number that is both badly made & too short for my taste. I like "retro" not "toddler."
That's why I love eShakti & continually talk about them like they are my own personal tailor. Cos...well..they are actually-- I have the option of customizing my dresses to my exact measurements. Which is, I believe, one of the definitions of "tailoring." Or I can add sleeves or change the neckline or the hemline or all 3 for a whopping $7.50 total. You see that blue number? I want to have it with a square neckline. Wouldn't that be adorable? All I have to do is check the box on the site. I have a tailor! Sweet!
And I'm not getting paid to say any of this.
I am advising you to try them out, however. The only "catch" on the code is that it has to be a dress (or skirt or top) valued at $55.00 or over. So you can get a $55.00 dress for $15.00. Add on $7.50, and you can have it custom tailored to your measurements or change to a square neckline. For an additional $15.00, you could do both. So for $30.00, you can get a dress tailored to your measurements with your own customized styling twists. Like a squared neckline and cap sleeves. Or whatever you want.
Because life is just that awesome.
See why I love them so?? And they aren't just retro, they have more modern designs as well. I just love the retro. In case you missed that bit.
