(everything thrifted from head to toe except shoptoast sweater)
vintage sheer slouch blouse, vintage DIY scallop shorties, vintage faux fur cardi, DIY lace turban headwrap, vintage TIME messenger bag, DIY leopard platform maryjanes, vintage cross necklace, vintage bangles/watch and B.E. rings
Hey girl, haaaay? So I think it's obvi that I'm like super OBSESSED with scalloped trim shorts! I love them so much that I decided to make my own out of these vintage pink denim shorts. I just traced 2 1/2" petals along the edges and cut it out. Seriously that simple! Kinda anxious to see what they will look like once they start fraying in the dryer, hmmm.
 It usually takes me forever to wear stuff I get in the mail. But this sweater is like my new bfff(best fucking friend forever, hehe) and we will never part! NEVER!! It just adds that EXTRA I need in an outfit, LOVE!
So it's pretty much the same old same old. Family, school, gym, work and blog! I'm kinda sad that I can't go to NYFW, since once again I've been invited to a lot of events and parties. Strongly wished I lived in a city of dreams and opportunities. Instead I live in Buttfuck, Texas where it's cool to be a drug addict loser who throws house parties! LAME! I dress way too FUCKING CUTE to go to a house party!! I could probably count on one hand the people I know who don't live with their parents, have a real job and actually accomplished their life goals. One of those people is my hubbie, Joel. He is like the most mature person I've met in my life. He's definitely help me change for the better. THANK SATAN for Joel!!
Well I could go on and on about the losers of Houston but I gotta go meet my trainer Stevie at the gym, booooooo! 
Thanks for all the LOVE you guys show me on a daily! Really makes a girl smile!
Hugs from above,

Bluefemme: Anyhow what is up w your vintage store??
I'm working on it love. I just need to take time outta my schedule to take the pictures. Every time I try to get around to it something bigger come up. Do you sell vintage?? I love that you mostly wear items from the 60s and 70s...yes I read your blog,haha!!

Tayler: did you happen do get inspiration from my tutorial??
Very close indeed but I got my inspiration from the Topshop shorts I won on eBay but they didn't fit :( so I DIY my own.
it's cheesy but great minds think alike!

Kb said...

Really love the shorts, will add to the DIY list.

Bluefemme said...

Ahh! Thank you!!!!I heart the 60s/70s!! : D I have a small vintage store but I need to add better items. I have this problem where I buy vintage to sale and then I can't sale it because I like it. Booh! If you ever come to LA I know all the cheap vintage stores starting at .099. I hope you find time to update your vintage store! :D

Seeing you in shorts with NO tights. And sitting on GREEN grass only makes me extremely jealous of you right now.
