Our lovely and versatile Lola dress played a part in a very special wedding. Eleven shining bridesmaids rocked the dress. I can certainly feel the love from here.

After reading this sweet post on Oh Happy Day I got to thinking about my own parallel love for Juke boxes. I was very lucky to inherit one when I was 17. My Dad owned a bar and when he downgraded to a cd type player he gave the old Jukebox to my sister and I. It was a seventies rainbow type filled with Rolling Stone, Otis Redding and Beatles. All 45′s.
Owning a Juke box sounds a lot like acquiring an old photobooth, they both involve special repair man who will tell you all the reasons you should not own it. Yet when you hear the sound and see the pictures, they drown out the this may not be a good idea sound. Of course both can get the party started with just one click.
Moving around with a jukebox as a teenager in those early years was no small feat. I even traveled with it to college in San Diego. I met many an interesting repair man, and counseled movers on how to get it safely from point A to B. It broke down many times, aging fast under our wings. It took month long breaks where it served as a ashtray/laundry/gossip table. Amazingly we always scraped together our quarters and got the beauty up and singing again. When I think of the days we had the jukebox thumping I cannot help but crack a smile.
My husband and I were driving around the other day and spotted a serious young thing walking around with long gray hair. He was perplexed and I was majorly intrigued. One thing is for certain we both cranked our necks to get another shot at this look. I like neck twister trends. One swoop around Pinterest and I got all up on the young going gray.
The sunshine will be here soon, or maybe it’s already arrived where you live? We’re seeing glimpses of her shining through San Francisco. If you’re like us, it’s time to start inventory on the current wardrobe. What tanks and dresses actually survived last summers antics? We think there’s always room for one more sun dress in the mix.
