                             in Georgia for 4 BUCKS! yes! i was 
                              over joyed for sure! but there is 
                              a catch. when we got home i plugged 
                              it in and it blew all our fewses in 
                               our upstairs. haha. but all is

outfit post / mushrooms & red lips

hi dears!
this is my fantasticallywonderfulterifficstupendous mushroom dress.

like most everything this dress has a story.
when we were in new orleans me and mamma were walking around and went into this biker chic kind of store that had GREAT retro dresses so we went in and i tried on a few of the dresses... well obviously since i'm kinda obsessed with mushrooms this dress was perfect so i got it and my mom asked the guy at the counter what brand it was and he said the brand usually made stripper clothes.. yes i know i know.. thats odd but this dress is spectacular and now it has a story which makes it more spectacular!

xo katie

p.s. yes. i'm very awkward in pictures.

Guest Post | Hailey | Vintage Suitcases

Hello! I'm Hailey, the other half of Chalkboard Love Vintage, and owner to my own blog, Sincerely, Hailey!

Since I am sure Katie brought her vintage suitcases on her trip, I thought I would share some other ideas for vintage suitcases other than using them to pack in.

This is what I look like when I travel. (or that's what I think I look like, at least)

I think this idea is adorable! Jaydinn (who posted Friday) did this and it looks so cute!

This idea is great! Especially, for things that you don't use as often.


I REALLY like this! I would have one in every bathroom!

I am definitely trying this soon. It's like a portable mini craft room!

Hope you enjoyed! Have a lovely day!

P.S. Thanks Katie for having me over to your blog! I hope you had an awesome trip!

Guest Post | Jaydinn Miller | Tattoos

I'm Jaydinn.
I'm here to do a guest post for Miss Katie.
I spent days thinking of just what to post about, and i finally came up with something.

Since i was five or maybe younger, i would beg my mom to let me get a tattoo, i was and am OBSESSED with them. 

Kat Von D was my idol, and i decided i was going to try to dress like her once, and it didn't quite work out :)
So here on The Wanna Be Red Head, i'm going to post some tattoos that i really love and want.

I could just go on forever, and ever, and ever, but i'll keep it somewhat short.
The thing i love about tattoos is the colour,
the pure art of the whole thing.
and i really don't understand why people DON'T like tattoos.

Thanks Katie for letting me post here!
it was fun!!!
