Retro Rainbow // BLACK + WHITE

About a year or so ago I did a really fun collaboration with one of my best pals, Jenny Mitchell. We have known each other for over ten years—yet we’ve never lived in the same state. Along the way, our fabulous friendship has spanned 2786 miles, three different blog platforms (hello LiveJournal!), the birth of two kiddos, and countless conversations about life, love of pop culture and our common obsession: thrifting. We started the Retro Rainbow as a means of  sharing some of our favorite finds with each other— all with a special color theme.

When the series originally ran, I was guest posting on Jenny’s blog and she on MK. I never actually shared my finds here, so I thought it would be fun to do so. Today’s theme? Black & White!

Ahhh, I love color but Black and White has been slowly taking over my world. So bold and graphic! Oh, and that last phone purse up there?? It really works! I call it my Spy Purse….you can plug it into the wall and make a call. Ring Ring! Ring Ring! The 70s are calling….they want to let you know you look FABULOUS.

    The phone purse is…THE BEST THING EVER. I do declare…nothing that exists or will exist, will ever compare to its awesomeness.

    Love everything!

    I have a matching Ericophone–only mine is in pink and I have one in a mint green. We should call each other. (If I ever get a land line again.)
