Awesome Affordable Etsy Find of the Week!

Oregon is currently experiencing a heat wave. We hit 101 today. Anytime the temperature climbs above 90 I'm convinced my second floor apartment is not actually an apartment but a human oven closely observed by alien chefs. It's terrifying. And sweaty.


Today I fled to the beach to escape the heat. Tomorrow I plan to wear nothing but a vintage slip to work, then crawl over to the air-conditioned grocery store across the street, lay down in the freezer section, and try not to get arrested for indecent exposure.

p.s. For all you sweaty, stylish Portland folks, also happening tomorrow: The Up in the Air Summer Affair Rooftop Party and Fashion Show. I'm hoping to peel myself off the grocery store floor, put on a bra (hopefully), and go check it out. Should be a really good time! See you there?

I understand that heat. We once hung out in Kmart for 4 hours because it was too hot in our already air-conditioned apartment.

I know just what you mean. Temps above 90 are excruciating. That slip will be just the thing!

Ha! Consider yourself lucky.
We hit 102 a few days ago.

Well Taylor Momsen gets away with it somehow and she's only 16 ;)

It is SO hot here too! I love your plan, although at my super casual job, it's likely nobody would even notice. ;) In my freezer section, however? Causing a riot. Brb, off to scandalize the masses!!

I agree - this heat has been ridiculous! I will be at the party tonight and I'm excited to go, but know that I too will have wear foundation garments and that it will be crazy hot.

Who knew they installed hell in a second story apartment? LOL.

Let's see if I can pass as a 4' 10" 21-year-old so I can get into that rooftop party...:P
Seriously, that sounds awesome and I can't wait until I'm legal so I can actually go DO all the cool things here in Portland.

I'm now going to go lay in my kitchen in front the AC and hope no one sees me through the window in our front door and thinks I have died.

wow, 4 hours north and 35 degrees warmer...
Gracey, think Lady GaGa and use some tape for "foundation garments"
