HAPPY HALLOWEEN

(everything vintage from head to toe except jeans)

Just a quick snapshot of Ephraim's Jimi Hendrix costume...ugh he's going to be so bad ass! He should be counting his lucky stars that his Mom has an insane vintage collection and the fact we're borderline the same size, lol! I'm doing it Mom style in my UNIF cat face sweater...Ephraim's the star tonight. More photos tomorrow, duh!

SATURATED


OMG if you want all eyes on you, then wear the brightest red pantsuit you can find, lol! They have no choice cause you will be nuclear glowing and making people faces red when you stand in front of them, hahaha! I love love love the cutouts and fit of this pantsuit like I'm not gonna lie I used to despise boot cut anything. The thought of it just makes me cringe! But I have been persuaded and they're not that bad, at least on a pantsuit.
Now I know you giving me side eyes and think I have a tuna fish sandwich wrapped in foil but I swear it's a clutch and I found it that way while thrifting. Sometimes I like to find other people DIYs cause it's interesting to know how they made it. At first I was going to peel it off but it's laminated and sewn over a hard box clutch with bad ass mirrors all over inside. So at least it a conversation piece! 

I'm totally in love with the simplicity of this outfit. Red, black, braids and silver hardware...sounds good to me!

Oh and I'm going to have a step by step tutorial on how to achieve my DIY braided hairband and spiked ponytail. I'm also giving away the neon version of my I Screwed Your Boyfriend clear vinyl clutch, YAYS! There's alot going on so stay put.

B&W RAINBOWS

vintage rainbow B&W oversized sweater, Nasty Gal B&W crop top cutout dress/silver cutout rings, vintage leather backpack, Dolce Vita Kemp snakeskin boots, Beginning Boutique triple spiked bracelet, wayfarer black sunnies, Romwe spiked leather cuff, vintage silver bangles and Items by Johanna silver digit rings

So we all know I'm obsessed with anything B&W, right? Well I bought this dress from Nasty Gal without even thinking twice about it cause I knew it was made for me! Now Joel wasn't so happy cause I used his card but who care what he thinks...this dress is amazing, lol!

I'm slowly becoming a firm believer in the cropped turtleneck, like finally there is something out there that accentuates my long neck and bony shoulders. I will be investing in lots of them, in ever color cause I gives no fucks!

Anywho, I have an awesome giveaway coming up and a discount code from Dolce Vita! So be on the look out for that. I'm beginning to think I'm going to be forever busy and my emails make me violently ill but one thing I can say is I love it. So keep your fingers crossed that my old ass can get back on track. I feel like I'm half way there, I just need to work on being more consistent and time management...booooooo yeah I suck sometimes, lol!

PURPLE RAIN


Channeling my inner Prince with this Purple Rainesque attire! For some reason I feel Prince would wear this...he used to rock a crop top like no other back in the day. Why? Cause he's fine as fuuuuck and he still got it, lol!
Now the top I'm wearing is my version of his signature ruffle top that I got from Romwe a few months back and I decided to wear it backwards for some reason. As cute as it is (seen here in white), the best part is in the back. I just had to see what it looks like the other way and boy was my face blown off. Like FINALLY having negative A boobs has paid off cause I couldn't get away with it if I had a massive chest!

I'm also wearing my first ever pair of riding pants from American Apparel which I'm not gonna lie I assumed they wouldn't fit my awkward 22 inch waist but they surprisingly almost did. So I think I'm going to try the XS next time...hmmm there is a store around the corner from my house. I'm going to have to put it on my list of shit to do, along with all the other shizz I needed done yesterday! FML!

SKY BLUE

vintage denim maxi dress, Zara baggy boyfriend jeans, old black beanie, Beginning Boutique strappy wedges/silver cross and skulls rings, vintage leather backpack, Nasty Gal triple cutout arm cuff/silver cutout rings, DIY spiked leather wrap cuff, vintage bangles, Shop W.A.S. inverted cross/evil eye glass door necklaces and Items by Johanna silver digit rings

So this denim on denim action was kind of an accident. I was in the process of changing out of my jeans into the dress but when I looked in the mirror I saw pure magic...like WTF who knew! I instantly channeled Aaliyah and threw on a beanie, I added wedges and statement jewelry to make it kinda "tomboy chic." I'm borderline obsessed with this outfit, I feel like a frickin' model off duty or something, lol!

Anywho, I've been doing a lot of writing/interviews lately which has gotten me so behind but now I'm back on track and hopefully I will be blogging on the regular again. I seriously missed that connection I have with my reader. This blog has become more than just outfits and it still amazes me to this day that you're still here...cheering me on and all that jazz! So thank you from the bottom of my vintage heart!!!
