REFEREE


(everything thrifted from head to toe except shoes)
vintage 50s band cardi, vintage neon orange cords, vintage B&W stripe referee tee, vintage B&W stripe clutch, Jeffrey Campbell Slovang woodies, white round Lennon sunnies, vintage Smokey the Bear hat, vintage cross necklaces, vintage bangles and random rings

You remember a few post back when I was raving about bold colors for the Fall/Winter? Well this is what I'm talking about. I want some action when I walk down the street. Like I want you to see me from a block away...I want you to say WTF, holy Mary of Satan and chat amongst your friends about me! Ugh I love that!!

You may have seen these cords before, here, but for some reason they pop more with the bolder B&W. I know I'm a bit matchy matchy but it's okay if you do it right. The key to matching is that solids and prints are BFFs. The orange cords and the referee tee could have been worn together alone but the cardi of the same colors pull it all in...like DAMN! Add shades, hat, stripe clutch and a shitload of jewelry!! You know how much I love a good shitload of jewelry? Lol!

So try this look at home with some of your favorite vintage pieces but don't go overboard. A subtle solid pop of color can go a long way and it doesn't have to be the same exact color, it can be in the same color family. I seriously HATE that and don't wear ANY jewelry that the same color you're wearing neither, yuck!! Tacky as fuuuuuck! VOMIT!

Well gotta go and do Mom stuff since the rain has finally stopped! LOVE YOU ALL!!

a quick comment can't explain how much I love this ! I love the continuity of the varsity jacket and the complete contrast of the bright, bold hued pants. And the heels add just the right amount of feminism!

I love the matchy-matchyness here. True that sometimes it doesn't work, but I think it brings an old school charm here; a throwback to when matching was really important to people. It makes me really want to describe the look as "dapper", and the bright colour makes it heaps cheerful as well. Love it.
