What I Wore: Color Pop

(what I wore: 80s motorcycle jacket – vintage from a garage sale, sweater – thakoon for target, necklace – vintage from mae’s heirlooms, skirt – bcbg, tights – hue, booties – asos)
I hope you had a wonderful holiday. I am struggling to come back to “real life” after such a lovely break.

What I Wore: A tutu, among other things

(what I wore: blouse – vintage from potter’s house thrift, skirt – old navy, tutu – dance supply store, tights – hue, boots – aldo, jewelry – vintage and forever21)
Every time I put these thigh-high heeled boots on I feel a little like Hooker McCanIWearthistoWork. However, I believe they can be done in a ‘tasteful & edgy’ way instead of a ‘streetwalker – pretty woman’ way. Hopefully that was accomplished with this outfit. Either way, I didn’t get walked out by HR, so no matter.

What I Wore: The long & short

(what i wore: skirt – lush from shop ultra, blouse – vintage from potter’s house, heels  & earrings – forever21)
I had the opportunity to get a blowout at Ultra studios last Friday. It was a total treat. Anyway, I found this asymetrical skirt and knew it must be mine. I wore this Monday, when the weather was balmy but I think the skirt will really come alive over tights and platforms. 

What I Wore: All Tied Up

(what i wore: blouse – polo, bowtie – claire’s, earrings – forever21, leather skirt – unknown vintage from potter’s house, tights – dkny, platforms – nine west)
I found this gem of a leather skirt for (wait for it) $5 the other day. I decided to snazz it up with ruffles and bows. My husband told me I looked like a card dealer at a casino. He might be right…

What I Wore: Complimentary Colors

(what i wore: blouse – vintage from potter’s house, skirt – banana republic, pumps – michael antonio, jewels – gifts & vintage) HAIR BY JENNI ASHFORD OF ULTRA SALON :)
I love wearing blue & navy or  pink & red (as in this case) together. I think it adds depth to an otherwise simple outfit. Do you feel the same?

Looking Forward to Fall

Ok. Officially. It is too hot. I’ve given up hope that it will ever cool down. I’m thinking we will have to bring sweats and leggings to Italy where the high is a balmy 82 and the low is a frigid 60. If fall ever comes, here are a few things I look forward to wearing.

Outfit: Flower Child

skirt – vintage from Daisy Exchange, white tee – hanes, belt – vintage, platforms – BCBG, right hand ring – mom

I found this delightful vintage skirt at the Daisy Exchange in Fayetteville. This is a perfect example of why I like shopping there. It was $4. No offense, but the people that run the place have no idea how to price quality vintage items. The same skirt at cheap thrills would have been at least $20, which still would have been reasonable. It wraps around and clips in the back, it’s extra long and it also has pockets!
