STEPPING OUT LIKE A "ROCK STAR" IN MY "ALL STARS"



HELLO FRIENDS!
HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE FOND MEMORIES OF BEING A KID AND THROWING ON YOUR CONVERSE ALL STARS AS YOU MADE YOUR WAY OUT THE DOOR TO HANG WITH YOUR BUDDIES? I KNOW I WAS ONE OF THOSE KIDS WHO LOVED TO GO OUT AND PLAY AND RUN AND BIKE AND SKATEBOARD IN MY HOOD! FAST FORWARD TO ADULTHOOD, AND ONCE AGAIN I AM SPORTING MY ALL STARS! I PICKED UP A PAIR OF CLASSIC BLACK ALL STARS ABOUT A YEAR AGO AND NEVER LOOKED BACK! I WEAR THEM WITH JEANS, AND IN THE SUMMER I AM NOT SCARED TO THROW THEM ON WITH A COTTON DRESS. I LOVE THE LOOK, BUT I REALIZE IT IS NOT FOR EVERYONE. I ESPECIALLY LOVE THEM WITH DRESSES BECAUSE IT CREATES A LOOK THAT SAYS STYLE AND COMFORT AND A REMINDER OF THE DAYS OF OUR CARE FREE YOUTH. ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE ROCK STARS, KURT COBAIN, USED TO WEAR THEM TO EVERY CONCERT HE PERFORMED IN. I CAN STILL SEE HIM IN HIS RIPPED JEANS, WHITE TEE SHIRT, AND V-NECK SWEATER, SINGING CLASSIC CLASSIC GRUNGE SONGS LIKE PENNY ROYAL TEA AND SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT! MANY OTHER CELEBRITIES WEAR ALL STARS, NAMES LIKE U2'S EDGE, AND OLD TIMER PAUL MCCARTNEY, JUST TO NAME A FEW OF THE MANY. IT IS THE EVERY DAY PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF WHO MAKE UP A MAJORITY OF THE SALES OF CONVERSE ALL STARS. I PICKED UP A PAIR OF PINK, SPLATTER COLORED, CHUCK TAYLOR'S TODAY FOR SPRING. THERE ARE SOOO MANY CHOICES TO CHOOSE FROM IN MANY COLORS AND DESIGNS....LIKE HUNDREDS! YOU CAN BUY VINTAGE CONVERSE ALL STARS ON A SITE LIKE EBAY! I ENCOURAGE YOU ALL TO PICK UP A PAIR FOR SPRING/SUMMER 2010. I HOPE TO SEE YOU WEARING THEM FOR ANY OCCASION!!!! I PROMISE TO GIVE YOU THE TOTAL THUMBS UP!!
RIGHT ON!! I LIKE THE LOOK!! YOU ARE ALL ROCK STARS!!!

ATTENTION WALMART SHOPPERS.....THE CLASSIC TEE!!!



HI EVERYONE!!
I AM BACK ON MY BLOG, FRESH WITH SOME NEW TIPS ON EXCITING NEW PRODUCTS! THE ENTRY TODAY IS THE CLASSIC TEE SHIRT AND HIP TWEEN AND TEENS GIFTS!
WE ALL WEAR TEE SHIRTS AS THEY HAVE BECOME A STAPLE IN ALL OF OUR WARDROBES. I MYSELF HAVE FALLEN VICTIM TO BUYING THE $60.00 TEE SHIRT FROM THOSE HIGH END RETAIL SHOPS. I USED TO SCOUR STORES LIKE BERGDORFS IN NY LOOKING FOR THAT SOFT, 100% COTTEN, FITTED TEE TO WEAR UNDER MY SWEATERS, OR ALONE IN THE SUMMER. THEY HAD TO BE REALLY SOFT, AND LOOK NICE ON, AND HAVE PLEASING COLORS. I USED TO DROP 50-60$ ON TEES FROM MICHAEL STARS, VINVE, AND SLENDID, JUST TO HAVE THOSE OH, SO SOFT, PERFECT TEES! WELL, I HAVE SEARCHED AND FOUND A NEW FAVORITE RIGHT HERE IN WALMART OF ALL PLACES. MY NEW FAVORITE BRAND WHICH I DISCOVERED 5 MONTHS AGO, IS CALLED FADED GLORY!!! IF YOU LOOK AT MY PICS, YOU WILL SEE ON THE TOP, A WHITE BEACH THROW ON WITH A HOOD IN 100% ORGANIC COTTON, PERFECT FOR THE BEACH AND VERY SOFT AND FLOWING.....$7.00 BUCKS MY FRIENDS. YES, I WILL BUY A FEW TO WEAR TO THE BEACH THIS SUMMER AFTER A LONG DAY IN THE SUN. I ALSO PICKED UP FOR 5 BUCKS, THE 3 TEES YOU SEE HERE IN THIS BLOG....A SCOOP NECK GREY, BLUE AND WHITE V NECK, AND CLASSIC WHITE....FOR THE PRICE OF ONE SPLENDID TEE, I CAN BUY 10 OF THESE BEAUTIES AND WEAR THEM ALL SUMMER LONG. THEY ARE IN THE JUNIOR DEPT AND I BUY A LARGE OR EXTRA LARGE. TEY HAVE SIZES WHICH WILL FIT ALL!! I AM WEARING MY WHITE ONE AS I WRITE UNDER A NAVY CASHMERE SWEATER!!
LASTLY, THE FUN, FUNKY, TEE AND BAG FOR THOSE TWEENS AND TEENS IN OUR LIVES!! I PICKED UP A MILEY CYRUS PEACE BAG FOR $5.00 AND IT IS IN WHITE WITH A SIVER SEQUENCE PEACE SIGN LOGO ON THE BEACH BAG...SO FREAKIN FAB!! ALONG WITH IT, I PICKED UP HER BRITISH TEE FOR $3.00 AND I FEEL LIKE LONDON IS CALLING FOR SURE...MICK, EAT YOUR HEART OUT. A PERFECT BIRTHDAY GIFT WOULD BE THAT BAG FILLED WITH A COUPLE OF THOSE TEE'S AND YOU ARE GOOD TO GO FOR 15 BUCKS AND BE THE HIT OF ANY TEEN PARTY BRINGING A COOL GIFT LIKE THAT!!
SO THERE IT IS FOLKS....ANOTHER FASHION TIP FROM PATTY P. I THINK YOU GUYS ARE GOING TO REALLY ENJOY MY BLOG WITH ALL THESE LITTLE SECRETS I HAVE AND AM WILLING TO SHARE WITH ALL OF YOU.
I PLAN ON DOING THIS BLOG WEEKLY NOW THAT I AM UP AND RUNNING. NEXT WEEK, I AM GOING TO DO A RESTAURANT REVIEW WHICH I THINK YOU ALL WILL ENJOY!!
BE COOL AND SHOP SMART AND LOOK FAB!!!
PEACE AND LOVE,

o'canada! beautiful vancouver british columbia!






hi everyone!
i am posting once again today for a very special reason......to let you all know about beautiful vancouver, british columbia!!
i am sure you all have been watching the olympics which are taking place in vancouver! i had the pleasure of calling vancouver my home for 6 years while my husband played hockey for the vancouver canucks. yes, hockey is canada's obsession! it is a religion up there and the whole country shuts down to watch hockey on saturday nights for hockey night in canada. it is equivalent to baseball in the us!
i wish that you all could have the chance to go and visit this beautiful city! it is the most beautiful city in the world and there is so much to do. i would recommend it highly to all, especially those with kids who like to bike, hike, run, curl, shop...etc etc. for all those fashionistas....vancouver has the best high end fashions and restaurants in the world. the city is a melting pot of many cultures and has so much to offer and see. where else can you be swimming in the morning and skiing in the afternoon?? beautiful whistler mountain has world class skiing and for those who do not want to travel up to whistler, there is grouse mt right on the edge of the beautiful city, with views for miles while you ski day or night!! i could go on and on. if anyone ever wants any info about the city of vancouver ....please let me know before you go!! i can give you a list of all the best places to see, stay, and eat!!
so for now...please tune into the biggest game of the olympic games.....the us vs canada tonight at 7!!! they say that almost 100% of all canadians will tune in.....let's do our part here in the us!!
go usa!!!

charlie hunt bracelets

hi everyone!!
i have received a wonderful response from some very fashionable people and i am humbled!! i promise to do my best to make this blog great for you!! i am new to this, but i want to do this my own way and i am not going to look or copy anyone else's blogs as i want this unique to me!! i am not posting anything here that i sell myself as i want this to be a blog about all the great things in life and i have no personal interest in any of the products or restaurants i will be blogging about.
i want to let everyone know where they can get these fab bracelets!! fashion forward people know these kind of bracelets would retail in the hundreds in stores like ralph lauren. i want to find stuff that is wonderful, but off the beat and path and bring them to you all here!!
the gallery where i found these gems is called the navarro gallery in sedona az. i e-mailed the nice woman who i bought my bracelets from and told her that people may contact her to buy some and she will ship them directly to you. she only had 3 left last week, but she said that charlie was making more and they are all handmade and would be there in the gallery next month.
her name is leanne and her e-mail at the gallery is cnavarroart@qwestoffice.net
they also sell beautiful belts to match the bracelets!
cheers and giddy op!!
