Put A Bird On It


I never pinned myself someone that would enjoy watching Portlandia so much, but I just do. For years and years Scott has called me Chelseabird, and he even had a bird for me drawn on the side of his vehicle once (long story, but Scott used to have a van that everyone would spray paint and draw all over). So when I finally saw the now famous "Put a Bird On It" skit, I literally tumbled over in laughter at how funny it actually was (everyone was right!). What I'm really trying to say is that I ADORE this flowy, bird top and I LOVE that someone actually wanted to "put a bird on it!"










I also really love this little polka dot spotted area. I always feel a little magical when I'm in there, and a little terrified at the same time (cars drive RIGHT over our heads).



Here's to a better day tomorrow, and late night iced coffees (I just might be drinking one now, shhhh). XO

  6. Such a gorgeous top! I've never watched a Portlandia episode through. I just watch the clips on Hulu. I love the "she didn't bring a bag" sketch. I have to admit I've experienced that shaming a time or two living in Berkeley.

  7. I haven't seen that show, but I DO love shirts with birds on 'em. I do love other pretty patterns too! Kitty heads, rabbit heads, hearts, etc. Done right, they can be classy instead of cutesy... Or cutesy instead of classy!

    Anyway: you look adorable and I think the area you were shooting in is downright magical!

  11. i own so many things with birds on it, it's starting to feel inappropriate. my fave is a bag i scored via someone's blog shop online: http://www.katilda.com/2011/07/birds-word.html ...i also once made a shirt w/ an ostrich on it for the chandler ostrich festival, but that's a story for another day. also, my good friend calls me "katiebird" and always sings that beatles blackbird song to me but inserts my name and sings, "katiebird singin' in the dead of night..." (you should try it with chelseabird. it's catchy.)

  16. That is certainly a beautiful location! I guess it's worth the cars driving overhead? My boyfriend constantly makes fun of me for hoarding things with birds on it after we watched that Portlandia segment together...but it seems like everything really IS made better with a bird on it. Your blouse would be stunning either way, of course.
