Holy shizz it's Spring and the weather has been AH-MAZING! Like there's fucking flowers everywhere, that I know was not there last week. Either my mind's playing tricks on me or old age...one of the two. But it's beautiful out and I'm shocked cause it's usually hot as hell in Texas around this time! Go Texas...
So I finally got my dream blouse in from Romwe and the color/fit is extremely mod. Being that the 50s/60s are my first love I decided to go for a more modernize girl next door look. I think Peg Bundy hair, floral petal pushers, pops of colors, cat eye sunnies, polka dots/stripes and neon wedges did the trick.
Now if I had Diet Coke in a glass bottle you probably would have thought you went back in time (haha not) and I definitely would have a switchblade in my clutch, like badass Wanda Woodward from Cry Baby, lol!
Also wearing newer items keep you from looking like you're sporting a costume, even though vintage is my life, I loathe girls who go too far and let the clothes wear them. You're supposed to be influenced/inspired by the era not become it! Vomit, rolling my eyes so hard, looks like I'm having a seizure over here, lol!
You know what I'm talking about? If you feel you look too much like (enter your favorite 50s/60s icon here) take a few vintage pieces off and and add newer accessories or vice versa. I promise this will freshen up your look for sure...bring yo shit into 2012!
Before I go I just wanted to say THAAANK YOOOOOOU to all my lovely readers! I feel like I haven't said that in awhile. Shit has been beyond overwhelmingly CRAZY and I'm just sooooo thankful you guys are on my side supporting me! Sometimes a positive comment from you guys can keep me from going bat shit crazy...ugh I love that!
