Can you believe it…it’s that time of year again. The days are long, the weather is warm and the 127 is on!
If you aren’t familiar with what the 127 is I will quickly get you up to speed…it is the World’s Longest Yard Sale! Yes you heard it right…it is held the first week of August , it’s on rural route 127, it runs from Alabama through Michigan and it’s 690 miles long!
Whenever I share my enthusiasm of this epic adventure I get one of the following two responses…Oh wow that sounds AMAZING, what’s it like? or eww! I get more wows that ewws but I get it, treasure hunting isn’t for everyone! So for those who are curious instead of a photo recap of this year’s trip I decided to do my 127 Show & Tell video style…
One rental mini van, three days, four states and 961 miles and this is how it went down…
Day One…Signal Mountain, TN to Crossville, TN
Check out tomorrow for day two’s clips from the road!
a mountain + a temple + a Buddha = a beautiful day
…this muumuu’s got moves and here’s a small clip to prove it in the magical country of India.
India is one of my all time favorites that transports me to another world that is a total sensory overload (in the best of ways) that includes the gorgeous colorful clothing and textiles to the various exotic scents to the amazing and delicious veggie friendly cuisine and the music that sets the ultimate soundtrack.
Guns N’ Roses N’ MuuMuus is how Julys’ muumuu of the month went down…
An epic evening with 40,000 fans throwing the horns to a world-class drop the mic performance from the iconic Sunset Strip Super band that holds a special place in my heart.
Thanks so much guys for an amazing night of rock n roll…\m/
I am super excited to announce that my lemonade stand is officially open for business. And when I say lemonade stand unlike my stand from back in the day there isn’t actually any lemonade it’s more like a closet full of vintage frocks, tops and jewels.
Check it out and feel free to share!
Style With No Regret,
All I want for Christmas is this super fab fantasy gift from Neiman Marcus. I couldn’t even believe what I was hearing when I first heard about this gift and them when I actually saw it with my own eyes my heart skipped a beat…an Ikat fabric covered treasure trunk filled with 200 pieces of jewelry and accessories from Iris Apfel…WHAT!!!! If that wasn’t amazing enough it also comes with a personal styling session and lunch with the rare bird herself!
I swear I have been good this year!!!!
last but not least…
This is my final report out from the epic 2015 longest yard sale. This was by far one of if not my best finds from this year’s treasure hunt!
Roller skates have been on my must get list for the past few years. I have gone back and forth on should I buy new or wait for the perfect pair of old school skates…and here is a perfect example of the age-old quote “good things come to those who wait”. And if good things mean super fab throw back sneaker skates that is ohhh sooo true! These wheels came home with me for an honest $5!!!
As a bonus track which was something I have never seen…businessman skates.
Until next year,
It was a Friday night and I slipped into a dream sequence that looked a bit like I entered an old school 1970’s VFW holiday party. The room was walled in a mix of wood panelling and mirrors and to fancy up the place the columns were wrapped in tinsel garland and holiday lights….Sweet! WAIT…WHAT THE WHAT…it wasn’t a dream sequence, in fact I was wide awake and just entered the most amazing Chris Owens Club off of Bourbon Street in New Orleans. We enter this fine establishment to watch a gentleman Reggie groove out to a mix of R&B, Soul and some Rock and Roll which was a good time and just like that it went from a good time to a great time. Enter stage left…an OTT wonder woman with long jet black hair, a sequined leotard, fish net stockings and bedazzled heels not to mention with the energy level and moves of a 20-year-old… Three Occupations: 1) Performer 2) Club Owner 3) Big Easy Icon Two Numbers that equal one spectacular age: 82 years old One Phrase that captures it all: Style With No Regret Congratulations to Chris Owens for being the super fab lady she is and welcome to the Style With No Regret Hall of Fame!!!! Power to the People, JSY
18 days, 4 countries, 45+ hours of flight time and one crocheted camel later I am Home Sweet Home…
This MuuMuu was my co-pilot and officially now needs its own passport!
This month’s MuuMuu of the Month was on the move making appearances in Paris, London, Shanghai and ended its great adventure in India.
Peace, Love and MuuMuu’s,
Geek, Freak’s and Dress Up…Doesn’t get much better than this!!! And I say this will all the respect in the world and totally include myself in this statement.
Once a year the best dressed pop culture peeps strut their stuff at the Dragon Con Parade in ATL as part of their yearly gathering…this is a total must on your bucket list.
Although I have only attended the parade portion of this weekend long extravaganza I totally want in!!! I need to be part of this parade is some form or fashion next year so I am thinking about a developing a super hero story line around “The MuuMuu Hunter” and her adventures rescuing all the misunderstood MuuMuu’s in the world and then I can have The MuuMuu Hunter accompanied by her MuuMuu Mafia roller-skating in the parade…who is in????
I wanted to showcase some of my favorites this year but was not able to edit that much so happy photo viewing.
The MuuMuu Hunter,
