Good day, Sunshine!

Remember that whole "I heart brights, I want to get back to that" thing? Yeah...this is a little attempt. I felt super Spring-y this morning so I made sure to grab some color when I picked what to wear. Turns out, the brights made my day substantially better, even though it involved a 3 hour Psych class with a "sucktorial" (as she would say, the prof that is) professor. I sat in class passing notes while drawing dresses, and day dreaming about a day not to long from now (about three weeks) when it will be "summer" and I can spend all my spare time sewing and thrifting, not doing papers and studying. Sigh. Couldn't come soon enough.

An aside: The sun decided to stay for more than 2 minutes AFTER I took these photos. *tear* But I borrowed Rachel Zoe's and Nina Garcia's books from the library today, along with Breakfast at Tiffany's and Cat Power's Jukebox! I heart you, FVRL! P.S. The funny face in the last picture is due to me panicking at the seeping marsh water from my backyard. Fuuuuuun.

EDIT: Do you like the new layout? I think some spring cleaning was long overdue....

Everything is thrifted, except the $ store tights.

I have to bring back my love of brights.
Isn't she gorgeous?

Vintage Queen?

The lovely ladies over at Queens of Vintage named me one of their top 100 vintage queens!
It's an honor, since I'm mixed in with some of the lovely girls
from flickr such as Lina and Heini.
Many thanks for the feature, I'm honored!

Check it out here!

P.S. If you're bored and want to hear a little group called Elk sing,
check out our vids on Youtube.
This is me...don't be too harsh, ok?
I sing on others too (Universe and U is one).


That's all I can say.

It's getting hot in hurr.

I like how my circle scarf is now...
a sexy asymmetrical skirt!
Expect to see me rock this style more often, I'm in love.*

*So is the BF ;)

Thrifted cardigan, boots, heels, headscarf.
Self-made scarf turned skirt.
AA V-neck tee. Joe tights.

H&M+....Value Village?

Someone keep donating H&M to my VV.
I'm not complaining.
I found this on Sun, when Em and I went thrifting.
The colors are so very unlike me, no?
I still really like it though.

Thrifted dress, belt, jacket. AE tee shirt.
Dollar Store tights. Payless wedges. H&M Scarf.

The Usual.

Sunday's outfit.
IHOP+Thrifting with Emily= classic.
We lurked outside Value Village for 15 mins until they opened.
It was pretty hilarious.

Thrifted dress, belt. Gap cardigan.
Joe tights. Payless forever ago wedges.

Take only what you need from them.

Sorry for the lack of posts! I have that looming Art History paper to do,
but I've been taking pictures so expect more outfit posts soon!
Also, I'm going to update the store this week, so look out for that as well.
I've got scarves (this polka dot one included), cute jean cutoffs, a dress and
one of most adorable jean skirts I've seen in a long time!

Thrifted skirt, scarf, jacket, belt. F21 (from Buffalo Exchange) shoes.
Old Navy tights.

Next of Kin.

Julia Restoin Roitfeld.
She's inherited her mother's stylishness,
making her yet another French woman to be jealous of.

I need these YSL heels!
I think I'm jumping on this train late but..
Either the Mary Jane or Pumps would do.
If only I had $800!*

*for shoes, and shoes alone.


So this tunicy, striped thing was originally for the store BUT...
It's slowly growing on me.
I'm think maybe a D.I.Y. a la Lily Allen in this Dolce and Gabbana dress.
A red sailboat might do it some good, non?

P.S. I like how we are almost hair twins ;)

Photobucket Sadface.

So I exceeded my bandwidth...and all my old photos won't work until the 25th! I'm really sorry, I will try my best to up load the ones from my last post (or at least a couple) just so there is something there.

Gonna Be Okay.

Lady Gaga tonight!
I'm super excited!
I'm thoroughly enjoying this 80's throwback, and my tutu!

Thrifted everything, except Dollar Store ripped tights.

Hair Did.

Finally got a haircut! Sorry for my absence, once summer rolls
around I'll be a far better blogger. For now, bear with me!

Thrifted (altered) dress, shoes, cardigan. Joe tights.
