Remembering Shelly

I try to keep things lighthearted and cute here at ChewZeFAT. With that being said, the name of the blog gives me complete freedom to talk about anything. Plus, It's my blog so I can do whatever the hell I want. 
Today would have been my wonderful Aunt Shelly's 52nd birthday. While I know I should be celebrating her life today, I always have a hard time doing so because it was stolen from her. Today's post is in her honor. She was kind, quirky and beautiful. If she were here today we would have put flowers in our hair, danced barefoot in the grass and laughed until we cried. So here's to you, Shelly.

Shoe Farmer

I think my recent Jeffrey Campbell splurges and straw hat really say all that's needed to justify the title of this post but it wasn't until I was packing all my things to move today that I realized how addicted to shoes I really am. Three boxes later, they are safe and sound. Some people have drug addictions, I have shoes. 
Life is so crazy busy at the moment. After a week in Yosemite, I went to San Francisco to get my visa Monday, worked Tuesday and moved all day today. Sometimes life can be a little impatient. It's important to appreciate the little things like vintage hats and yummy mint pants.

Post Vacation Blues

I've spent over 24 hours driving, riding and sleeping in moving vehicles this week. All the dead legs and horrific rest-stops were well worth it though. A week camping and cabin-ing in Yosemite has cured my summer blues; however, post vacation blues have already set in. My all black ensemble is to mourn the end of a very stellar week.

In With The Old

Whoever said, "out with the old, in with the new" was a window licker. My life would be so boring without my favorite vintage finds, like this hat. I'd rather change the saying to "in with the old, new and whatever other weird shit you find." 
So here's today's outfit. We've been through a lot already today - new tires, a car wash, preparing for a Yosemite camping trip, the beach, a vegetarian pizza sandwich, new shoes and the day is hardly over. We're pooped! (my outfit and I)
I've been doing really well saving money for France. Well, that was until I discovered this kitty cat blouse and Jeffrey Campbell Lita's. Oh well, there's always tomorrow.

Cakes & Kittens

My favorite person in the whole wide world invited me over for breakfast today. While she was distracted making coffee treats, I threw a couple scoops of batter down in an attempt to sweeten her plate. Later, we discovered this kitten mailbox while scouring the neighborhood for a place to snap some photos.
