 Pendant - via Keely
Sundress - UO Urban Renewal, thrifted
Flats - Christian Louboutin, ebay

Woowee it's hot out there today. I stuck with a simple linen sundress and flats. My Sister-in-law and her family are here for the long weekend, so my usual photospot was not usable. I did get to go grocery shopping today. Aldi is my favorite grocery store. It's bare bones, dirt cheap shopping. You gotta bring your own bags, pay a quarter to use the cart (you get it back though!), and everything is pretty much just stacked on it's original shipping slats. But I'm crazy obsessed with Happy Farms cheeses, their store brand coffee drink (99p for better than starbucks!), and Moser Roth chocolates. And the lack of advertising, bags and charged carts mean that you pay uber reasonable prices. What's your favorite non-clothing store to shop at?

Mint Cherry

 Wrap top - gap, thrifted
Tank - thrifted
Skirt - Banana Republic, thrifted
Sandals - Liz Claiborne, thrifted

Ah today's weather is perfection. Hot, but not humid. Sunny and bright, with a nice wind. I know, weather again? Well it means that I'll be curled up on the porch in these nice comfy layers finishing the last Pendragon book. To talk about the clothes, the wrap top is not sky blue in real life. It's really more of a mint/tiffany shade. The skirt is 100% wool (for realz?). It's very light weight, and the wool keeps it super airy. It'll be layered under everything this winter as a warmth layer, but it's surprisingly perfect for summer too.

Space Crazy Girl

 Tee - Theme, thrifted
Belt - thrifted
Star Skirt - Versace Jean Couture, thrifted
Boots - Fluevog

Wee! D and I went swimming for the first time this summer. I had so much fun. It's sad to think that's summer over half over for me and that I have to start thinking about the fall semester already. Booo.

Anyway I decided to pull out one of my doodle outfits since it wasn't a bazillion degrees. I loved the proportions of this, and pulling out one of my favorite color combos of blue, red, yellow. I am sad that this skirt doesn't photograph well. It's star patterned, not polka dots!

Check back tomorrow for the announcement of the next Fashion Challenge!

Weekend Stuff

Top - swap
Jeans - Target thrifted newstock, altered
Pumps - John Fluevog
I'm going to start this round up with a babble explaining why green shoes are amazing - and just as vital to my closet as red ones. They add the best pop of color, are much more versatile than one would imagine, and really add a reason for a double take. When I first got them for my birthday, I thought I didn't have anything that would go with these crazy colors. Little did I realize, I had tons - including this awesome top that possibly nominates me for citizenship in MatchyMatch town.

Check out how many things green shoes go with!

 Lace top - gift from Mom
Vest - All Saints
Jeans - American Eagle, thrifted
8R Harness Boots - Frye
Bracelets - gift from Sarina
T Scarf - DIY
I jokingly told my mom that this was my "Old West" outfit. I nearly added my harness, but I thought it might be a little overkill. This outfit was more geared to watching movies and couch surfing than gun-slinging. These jeans were a lucky goodwill find. Jeans that fit are so hard to come by and I seem to just try on as many as I can and buy what fits. Not my favorites, but upon seeing them in photos - they're better than I thought. Super Saturday is coming up this next weekend - So excited!!!!

Did you do anything fun this weekend? Are you looking forward to the next Fashion Challenge? Keep an eye out for the announcement about the next one!

Lives in a Pineapple

Dress - Sigrid Olsen, thrifted
Harness - Audra Jean 
Pumdals - X-appeal, thrifted

This pineapple dress always seems suitably ridiculous. I knew I would have to pair it with my harness. It really calls for a huge belt to break up the mass of pineapples - due to the way it's cut. Brilliant day with lots of wind, so of course I had to pick the one 'wrap dress' I've got. Haha.

Check out my self-done manicure. I suck at painting my nails, but so many blogs I follow have been showing off the manis lately that I decided to do my own with what I had around the house. NYC's Flat Iron Green (green so dark, it's black) and Revlon's Salsa Red (pinky watermelon red) on my left ring finger. Here's hoping I don't destroy it on day one.

Dress, Vest - All Saints
Bellevue Pearl Hart Pumps - John Fluevog

Decided to wear my favorite pieces today.(seriously, all my pieces are my 'favorites' so it's almost irrelevant to say that). I remembered to take a shot of the back of these pieces! I really wavered on ordering this dress because it had a 'butt pleat/bum roll' that was really throwing me for a loop. I was afraid it would bunch up short in the back or fall in a strange place, but All Saints designs their pieces to be worn on bodies. The 'pleat' hits right above my tail bone tailoring the waist in for a very pretty fit. Even on my 'junk-in-the-trunk' booty it doesn't hit too short in the back and it doesn't require a belt to fit in an hourglass-y shape.

This outfit was worn to wander around Goodwill while waiting for D to finish up an appointment he had. I managed to come out with a bathing suit (top). I started looking into a new suit back in spring but wasn't thrilled with the options of one pieces or bikinis. So I decided to liberate one of D's pairs of board shorts and found a matching top. Now I'm looking forward to time at the pool!

Red Wednesday

Top - vintage, thrifted
Belt - thrifted
Jeans - London Jean, thrifted
Boots - Fluevog, ebay

This is my favorite shirt. It's shapeless, it's shiny, it's iridescent. It's cool today. Odd weather for June. So I pulled out the jeans and ankle boots. I still wish I knew the "name" of the specific style of boots I have. They are from the Fluevog Time family (dated around 2005-6?), but I haven't been able to find the specific style.

Last night I decided it was Time. I picked up a new shade of dye in a brand I had never used because no where in town carries Herbal Essence dye I used to use. I always pass over Preference because the gold box seems a little outdated/cheap looking, but I decided to try out RR07 since it was the only true red I could find. I was pleasantly surprised. It brought all of my hair to mostly the same color. There's subtle tones and differences, but it actually brought it all close to one color. It also didn't leave my hair feeling crunchy despite the amount I have dyed it, and it didn't stain my head. If you've ever used red dye, it's notorious for staining.

Fire and Ice

Tank dress - NY&Co, thrifted
Sheer Kaftan - thrifted
Sandals - Van Eli, thrifted

Or rather fire and water. Today's weather is so convoluted I hardly knew what to wear. It's raining one second, super sunny the next. I opted for loose thin layers and sandals. With lots of shiny stuff. Today was all about running errands so this made a comfortable outfit extra necessary.

Not much else to say today, other than I'll be sitting around watching re-runs of How Do I Look and that I found a quarter in the parking lot (24 extra cents of luck). What are you doing this awesome Tuesday?

 Kameez dress, belt - thrifted
Sandals - Liz Claiborne, thrifted
Shalwar Kameez is worn by men and woman in the South and Central areas of Asia. The top part is called a kameez and has split sides to accommodate movement (and I'm guessing putting on because the top part is nicely fitted). I spotted this insanely bright green 'top' sticking out of a random rack a few weeks back. It was split all the way up to my hips, but a quick buzz through the sewing machine left it wearable as a dress (with sleeves!).

The fabric is a light and airy cotton which makes it awesome for these super hot days. I wish I had it in 4 more colors, and I could give up on thinking about getting dressed for the whole summer. Also I need to trim my bangs some more.

One more reminder, I had items up for swap in my little swap stop. I finished putting everything up.

Big Time RoundUp

 Tank - thrifted
Cardi - Rugged Warehouse
Jeans - DKNY, thrifted
Shoes - Eject
This weekend started out slow. I puttered around goodwill searching for the ever elusive "jeans that fit". I made out with two pairs of capris, one pair of jeans, and two skirts. Not bad. Weight gain sucks, but it's awesome when you can come across items that are super close to things you already own. The skirt below is the exact cut as my grey one, just one size bigger and in a black colorway. (The grey one is now up for swap)

 Blouse - LOFT, thrifted
Skirt - IZ Byer, thrifted
Shoes - Fly London
We had an early lunch with the in-laws and some extended family who was in town. I wanted to make a good impression so I ended up in this all black ensemble with red shoes. I really like the proportions though. 

 Tie Dye Tank - Target
Cranberry Capris - thrifted
Zebra Tennies - Chuck Taylors

Speaking of proportions, I did a quick change right after lunch and met my mom in her town. I had originally picked up a t shirt to wear but the rain had drifted and the sun coming out so I grabbed this tank in target. One of the very few retail things I've paid for in months. The tie dye tanks were awesome! I wanted it in three different colors, but stuck with the purple. Hubs called this my "grunge" look. By the end of the day, it was. I walked a ton, carried groceries home for mom, and generally got sweaty. Yuck! And although I'm posing in front of a parking lot carnival, I did not go over.

Xmen First Class

Teal top - Studio Y, thrifted
Capris - Banana republic, thrifted and altered
Sandals - Van Eli, thrifted

Mom and I hit up our second movie of the summer: X-men First Class. I was happily pleased with the movie as a long time X-men fan. I was pretty pleased with the actor choices. James McAvoy made a great young Professor X. I originally saw him in Starter for 10 , which I wasn't terribly fond of, but I learned that he is an astounding actor who can play both cool and collected Xavier and bumbling British college kid. I've enjoyed most of the X-men movies, but in particular was fond of the Wolverine Origins installment. Can't wait to see what might be lined up next.

For those less interested in geek talk, today's outfit needed to be comfortable, easy and cool. I was a bit worried about this top after Wednesday's discomfort, but I didn't have any issues with feeling like a wardrobe malfunction might happen and I love the funky neckline. These capris have much more appeal now that I'm pretending they're grey (actually black and grey mini-striped). And I stuck with my new sandals because they're comfortable and I didn't feel like pulling out the under the bed box to find another pair.

What are your weekend plans? Has anyone else seen the newest X-men? Any summer movies you're excited to see?

Amok Time

Tank - H&M, thrifted
Skirt - Casual Corner's Annex Petite, thrifted, altered
Trek pin -, gift
Sandals - Van eli, thrifted
Woo! The most awesome thing about clothes is that they are so easily changed. After feeling awkward in yesterday's outfit, I knew I needed something that made me feel awesome. This skirt was one of the many 99p dresses I've bought. I loved the fabric, but wasn't fond of the difficult to get into and shapeless top portion. Logical solution: Remove the top! Now I have a fun skirt with lots more versatility than a dress that can't be belted. Today's theme is space, inspired by the Cat's Eye Nebula.
tiny heels~

Also debuting my awesome shoe find. I knowwww. (I did get rid of those vintage green sandals due to the strap crumbling after wearing, and also giving away my cole haan wedges that didn't get much wear. One in, Two out.). But I've been hunting for a light colored neutral sandal forever! It finally showed up in a crunchy silver/pewter sandal this past week. I think these set me back $5. I've had a rash of shoe thrifting finds. These had to be cleaned up, but were in relatively new shape.

Hubs made out like a bandit though. I found him an almost new pair of Chuck Taylor low tops. They were coated in dust, but under the dust the sole was still 'sharp' (you know I what I mean if you've ever owned Chucks) and clean. A few lint roller sheets and bam - like new. Thrifting men's clothes/shoes is really hard because men tend to wear everything until it's literally falling apart and then they argue that "It's still good!"

Garments of Discomfort

 Top - Michael Michael Kors, thrifted
Skirt - thrifted
Belt - Kenneth Cole
Flats - United Nude

I love love love the idea of this outfit. Bright cyan blue with marigold yellow, full skirt with circle designs throughout. But honestly this whole thing made me so uncomfortable. I rejoiced when I found this NWT Michael Kors top in a golden yellow, thinking it would be the perfect match for this sore thumb of a skirt and a dozen other things in my closet. I was excited. So much so that I didn't bother trying it on. I wish I had because the one shoulder thing? Definitely not for me. I felt 'exposed' until I got home and changed.

But this is good news for anyone interested in a swap, because both items can be found in my Swap Stop now. Ah well, live and learn.

Lace and Laces

Dress - All Saints
Vest - thrifted
Shoes - Chinese Laundry, thrifted
Necklace - via Mom

lace detail
It's that time again! Everybody, Everywear. I had this outfit on my list for awhile anyway, but I realized it worked great for today's challenge. The black sheer, lace vest (no way I'm calling it a dress) was a thrifted item that I thought would work great for layering. This white dress has edgy lace-ups, but it still comes off as rather 'sweet'. So I tossed on a bunch of black over the top accessories and dark lipstick. I just plum felt like dressing up today.

Also I really need to get a good picture of the back of this dress. All Saints clothes are really designed all the way around.

I'm ordered by Dr.Mom and Dr. D to rest my shoulder today. I mentioned over the weekend that I was having pain. So I'll be hitting up as many blogs as I can today since I'm not allowed to do lifting and whatnot. Additionally, I've begun updating my Swap Stop if you're interested.

*Edit: fyi, it's raining.

Return of the Poof

 Burnt Orange Tee - Banana Republic, thrifted
Pima Cotton jeans - The Limited, thrifted
Pumdals - X-Appeal, thrifted
Cardigan - Rugged Warehouse

Dry hair and a sort-of smile
Waaah, Can I complain enough about the unholy hour I had to get up this morning? Really it wasn't that bad, I did get Starbucks after all. D and I had to travel to Nashville for his dental appointment. I decided to go with jeans, a fancy tee, and carry along a cardigan for waiting in the lobby. Apologies for the wet hair and sleep-face, but this is 15 minutes after waking up, getting dressed and out the door.

You can see my painted toes!
These are my newest jeans. I can't stop buying wide leg dark denim. The plus to these is that the fabric is actually light weight and 41% Pima cotton. They are super soft.

Liar, liar, pants on fire. Here I am again eating my own words. Again and again. I lament the puff sleeve all the time. But really, there are alternative puff sleeves that work for broad shoulders. I think the sleeves on this tee actually help minimize my shoulders. This was a happy find from a few weeks ago when I went to the larger Goodwill in the next town. I want it in every color plz.

How was your Monday?

Heated Wrap

 Plaid Dress - Converse newstock, thrifted
Belt - thrifted
Shoes - Louboutin Mumbai flats, ebay

I hardly know where to start talking about this past weekend. I started out Friday into Saturday with a badly pinched/hurt nerve in my shoulder/neck area. I wimped around most of the day, but finally made a green tea run. As you can probably tell, it was hot. I didn't even want to wear the belt, but I ended up wearing one anyway.

 Top - gift
Trousers - Express, thrifted
Pearl Hart Pumps - Fluevog
Bag - Tyler Rodan, TJMaxx
New Rack!

Sunday, I got fire under my butt to start moving furniture (if you know me irl, it tends to be an OCD quirk). Hubs and I moved out a desk/bookshelf hybrid and moved in.... A clothing rack!!!! I'm so excited. My dresses can be hung, not shoved into a too small closet. There's even more floor space and my clothing and accessories are visible now.

Mom bought me this top during her Super Saturday shopping. She surprised me with a couple tops for summer since she knows my spending habits have had to slow. I normally would have never bought this for myself, but I loved how it went with my 'Vogs and pink pants. Also the wind was on my side for once. Sort of.

Retro VS Dated

Retro VS Dated
Let me preface this with the fact that I am in no way qualified to write this, but this idea has been bouncing around in my head since reading Sal's comment from her latest article on Trend Awareness. She responded to a commenter saying, "As for the line between frumpy and retro, that is a tough one. I’ll have to give it some thought! Anyone else care to weigh in?" So here's my answer:

Head to Toe
Dressing from head to toe in a certain decades trends is the Number One way to looking outdated. Wearing bell bottoms, a fringed vest, and a headband is more likely to make a person look like they've just stepped through a time warp than out of an editorial. We've all seen "that person" who looks like they haven't updated their closet since high school - 20 years ago. There are times where head to toe vintage can come off as polished, but that brings us to:

Cut and Fit
Remember the 80s and those big shouldered blazers? Everything had shoulder pads? Look in a magazine or at your favorite fashion online rag and you'll see celebrities galore with strong shouldered jackets. What makes them look fashion forward instead of frowzy? Fit. Those jackets have slimmed down in the body and sleeves, instead of the boxy bodied shapes of their yesteryears. Wide leg pants have also taken on a new cut. The rise has risen from ultra-low, the width slimmed down, breathing new life into what was a dated cut.

Fit has changed drastically over the years to compensate for the current concept of "beauty". It never hurts to try on that vintage dress, because it may fit better than it's modern counterpart. Many current pieces are fashioned for hanger appeal, to increase impulse purchases. Vintage pieces were cut to fit bodies. So try things out, you may be pleasantly surprised.

Browse through any thrift store and you're bound to find garish prints that haven't looked modern in decades. Prints can date even the most modern cut garment. There's been a resurgence of "Grandma's Couch" florals in recent years. These items look instantly dated, even on the shelf. (In my opinion) It can be hard to overcome a dated looking print.

Fear not, fashion-lovers! Those vintage pieces don't need to languish in your closet until the fashion cycle turns around. Refresh your pieces by pairing them with modern counterparts, accessories and shoes. Try a large statement necklace with that 50s style dress. How about that fringed vest with a pair of skinny jeans? Try vamping up that dated print with fresh color pairings. Mix a 60s dress with a 20s cloche hat. Try taking things to the tailor to be hemmed or altered to better fit you.

What you think makes a garment dated? Do you wear vintage, and if so, how do you keep it fresh? When is it time to say goodbye to an outdated piece?

Commenter Audi says: "I'd also add that fabric is another thing that dates vintage pieces. For instance I love 60's mod styles, but find that I can't get past the polyester fabrics so often used back then; I'd much rather have a 60's-style garment in a modern fabric, or else hold out for the really high quality vintage stuff in wool or silk."

White Cherry

Tunic - NY&Co, gift
Tank dress - Faded Glory
Belt -Kenneth Cole, via TJMaxx
Socks - gift
Pumps - Fly London

Return of the doodle! I finally got some time to sit and draw. I did a few doodles, so hopefully I'll be able to share some of my doodle outfits over the next few weeks. This outfit was so floaty and cool. I love socks, and my mom is notorious for sock-gift-giving. These red and white striped were a perfect match for this red and white layering.

Today's FF questions were about summer trends. I don't really see how summer trends were different from spring trends. So I don't have much to comment on here.

Instead of rehashing trends, go check out the Fruits Week round up over at Casual Chic Kiki.

Return of the Stripe

Shirts - thrifted
Wide leg pants - Express
Louboutin Mumbai flats - ebay
Tyler Rodan Bag - TJMaxx

This outfit was planned for Super Stripes Week. It got cut in favor of other outfits, but I kept it on my list for later. The pants have little stripes, the shirt - stripes, even the shoes are striped. I needed some easy clothes for today. Something already put together. I have lots of planned out outfits, but can never decide when to wear what. I think my "saving" feeling is coming back. The obvious thing I need to do is wear exactly what I want to.

And stop shopping. (For real.)

How Neutral Can You Go?

Dress - ICI, thrifted
Belt - thrifted
Boots - 8R Harness Frye

Today I started my outfit from a post by Twenty York Street. The title was How Neutral Can You Go?. I normally can't stop myself from popping neutral outfits. But I decided to give it a try. In honor of my interview over at the gorgeous Wendy Brandes's blog, I started with my animal print dress and some red lipstick. I even did the Wendy pose. I tried to keep things simple, but interesting. Temps are hitting the 100s today.

The belt is new to the blog. Cost me all of 75p. Thrift stores host some amazing accessories for rock bottom prices. And yes, I am wearing boots despite the super heat. Sometimes I prefer to have my feet covered up in summer. Having socks and shoes between me and the humidity actually keeps me cooler sometimes. Do you wear boots in the summer?

Trying out Tuesday

 Top - Target newstock, thrifted
Skirt - Versace Jean Couture, thrifted
Necklace - via Mom
Paris Pumps - John Fluevog

 As many of you have noticed, I've redone my header. I've been planning a space themed layout for awhile now. The final piece of inspiration came from this awesome skirt. I love stars, and I saw this skirt peeking out of the racks at Goodwill. I ran down the aisle and checked the tag and the size - Major Score! I had to wear it right away.

I also borrowed some jewelry from my mom this weekend. I don't have tons of room for jewelry/accessory storage and my mom has some of the coolest jewelry that she's accumulated over the years. In particular, I took home this adorable single lizard earring and the hematite necklace above.

Top - H&M, thrifted
Jeans - thrifted, altered
Sandals - Liz Claiborne, thrifted
Sew Sunday I hemmed some jeans. The William Rast Target jeans I thrifted became a pair of capris. I'm really not big on shorts, but sometimes like capris. I don't remember when I wore this outfit, but I think it was before Fruits Week. It's simple, but I liked it enough that I wanted to document wearing it.

Seriously, I'm hiding those white sandals from myself - otherwise, I'll wear them everyday. ---->

Weekend of the White Sandals

 Dress - Karen Kane, thrifted
White Sandals - Liz Claiborne, thrifted
Flower - From the garden
This picture is nearly a lie. Why, you ask? Because barely an hour later the sky was raging with a huge thunderstorm. Mom and I caught the bus and midway down the line a black cloud drifted over. We usually do some minor shopping along the way home for food, drinks or whatever essentials Mom needs so we had to run through the rain to the shops. I was dressed for the hot sun, not cold rain.. so I was drenched. But I still had a sweet woman stop me and gush over my dress. I promise I look better when I'm not sopping wet!

Now about the dress! I've had a rash of marvelous thrifting finds lately. This Karen Kane dress was hanging on the rack as I walked in. I picked it up because weird prints always draw my eye and the dress is a very swishy jersey. It fits so amazingly well I couldn't put it back. I was iffy on the length, but after wearing it I really, really liked it. I also got my pineapple dress on that day.

Saturday was Super 50% Off Everything Day... and I hadn't planned on going since I had already bought the two dresses mentioned above. But Mom called to tell me she had found me a couple of tops out at her Goodwill. I decided to be nice and see if I couldn't find her a couple of goodies (I did). But I also spotted two things for myself. I gave a budget of no more than $5 spent on me and managed to come out with a BNWT Michael Kors top and a Versace Jean Couture skirt. It took me all of ten minutes to spot these! Super Score!

Sew Sunday: T Shirt Scarf

Fig. A
Many people requested a t shirt scarf tutorial earlier this week. There are tons out there, but I wasn't able to find one as simple as this. There are many, many variations on this theme, but this one is the easiest with no sewing, no embellishments, etc.

What You'll Need:
A big t shirt
A straight edge (optional)

Picking your t shirt: Bigger is usually better for scarf making. My white one (pictured here) was made out of a Medium Hane's Mens shirt. My suggestion is to pick a bigger one if you want to loop it. Also, if it's made of plain cotton versus 'jersey' will make a difference in how your scarf feels, moves and looks. Patterns, stripes or graphics can also provide visual interest to your scarf without any extra work.

How to:
  1. First lay your t shirt on a flat surface. A table is good.
  2. Like fig. A shows, cut off the bottom hem and from arm pit to pit. You don't need this fabric. Save it for another project or use it as rags.
  3. Now you will have basically a tube of fabric. As fig. A shows, use your scissors to cut strips from one end to the other, leaving about an inch or so of fabric uncut at one side. I suggest one inch strips, but you can vary the widths to give a different look.
  4. Now you will have what looks like a bunch of fringe attached at one side. Part your loops and put them over one arm. You will now have a bunch of rings that should be attached at the top. (Should look like this!)
  5. Grabbing the bottoms of all the loops in the other hand- pullllllll. This will stretch the loops, curling them.You can change up the lengths of individual strands by pulling some more.
  6. Tah-dah! You're done. 
Additional suggestions - You can add chains or beads, cut, braid, tie the different strands, use the extra fabric bits to lash things together and create different scarf looks. I suggest not wearing a newly made white tee scarf with a black shirt (or other contrasting colors) because the raw edges will most likely shed fuzzies for awhile. Please feel free to ask any questions if anything is unclear!

Fruits Week: Very Berry

 Tank dress - Faded Glory
Bolero (Express), Belt - thrifted
Sandals (Michael Antonio), necklace (Urban Outfitters) - Rugged Warehouse

Or more accurately - not all that berry. Summer is getting the better of me. I needed to go grocery shopping (flat shoes), it was in the upper 90s (nothing more than a dress), and I drove! (comfort). So I tossed on a tank dress with my new disco-ball-shiny bolero that I thrifted a little while back. Yes, sequins at the grocery. Rock'n'roll.

I did top everything off with my bigass strawberry necklace though. This thing is a mini-wrecking ball. It's super heavy, long and - hey I only paid $3.99 for it at Rugged Warehouse.
