Red White & Blue

Tuesday, May 5, 2015

I guess I was feeling patriotic, I didn't even realize my color scheme was so "Merica" until I decided to wear these shoes at the last minute. I'm gearing up to head back to Europe in two weeks, shit, that's like tomorrow. I'm so unprepared and scrambling but I'm trying not to think too much about it.

You've probably seen this look on social media already so I thought I'd get it up on the blog. I've always loved shades of green, so when I put this look together I thought I'd mix slightly different sades to give the look texture and add depth. I love how this came together. I got these trousers from Zara and they'll be in heavy rotation this summer. They're so versatile, they can be worn with anything from a slouchy tee to a bra top and still look really chic.

I know everyone is into these monochromatic or tonal looks. But as I mentioned a good way to add character to this trend is varying the shade of each piece slightly. I think visually that makes tonal looks more interesting. My top (actually it's a dress) is Helmut Lang, I scored for 25 bucks at Mint Condition. My Blazer is thrifted, shoes are by Costume National, and another sick box purse from Fran.

If The Shoe Fits

Friday, April 24, 2015

It’s official, I fucking suck a blogging. Where does the time go, I feel like I just wrote my last post and that was two weeks ago. Tughhhhh…well can’t have it all. I have to admit I'm currently shitty at staying on top of things. However, one thing I am not so shitty at is blowing your mind with my thrifted finds lol. People, this is why I throw nothing away. Because one day I’ll wake up punching myself that I got rid of something glorious. Which has happened on many occasions. My thrifted finds have me thanking the Lord on a regular basis...I AM NOT WORTHY!!!

I've been waiting for weeks to wear these shoes. Finally a pair of lace up sandals that fit chicken legs!!! I thought for sure when I ordered them they wouldn't fit, but they were on sale so what the hell, I was pleasantly surprised that I'd finally succeeded in finding a pair that fit. See, never give up. One day you too may find the elusive pair of sandals you've been searching for (or man lololol).

Been a Long Time

Friday, April 10, 2015

Things are winding down at the moment so hopefully that means more consistent posting but who knows. Spent the past few days working on giving my moms house a face lift and the other design project I mentioned before. So in a nutshell I've been ridiculously busy. I'm putting things on pause so I can catch my breath, I finally had time to snap some photos and get a post up.

I'm debating on changing the blog layout again, I have mixed feelings about what I wanna do. So bare with me as I figure out the best format for the content I wanna cover. I don't really like blog layouts that have a news-like/magazine feel but I totally understand why bloggers gravitate to that style. I'll try my best to have a good balance as I continue to expand my content outside of solely personal style.

No Fuss

Monday, March 30, 2015

Happy Monday guys. So I'll start off with my usual unrelated rambling then move on to this look. I've mentioned this a million times but I'm either a sweats and tee kinda girl or all out dressed up. By no means do I dress up everyday because I just don't feel the need to. I'll hit the streets with no makeup, looking slam like I rolled out of bed in a heartbeat. That's just me.

There's no rule that says because I'm a blogger I have to walk out the house everyday trying to impress the world. I'm no different than any of you reading this. With that being said, I'm such an advocate for personal style because in my opinion it's a great way to express yourself. My love of thrifting and creating looks for little money is me expressing the cost of things doesn't equate to style. Style is like it's own language, it translates no matter knowing the sum of it's parts, it's an appreciation of composition. I've never been impressed by labels, and sure if I was rich I could afford nicer things, but that wouldn't change my eye in terms of style.
