lilac lovin’

sine dress (similar here), h&m jacket (similar here), vintage sunglasses, low luv triangle necklace, thrifted lightning bolt necklace, DIY minaudiere, bracelets (from top): h&m, bauble bar (similar here and here), asos, forever 21, forever 21 nude oxfords

An easy outfit for another pantsless Tuesday.  Though a box clutch and a ruffled silk dress don’t seem casual at first, a denim jacket and a pair of nude oxfords bring this outfit down to earth.

rejected

I went to sell my clothes the other day, figuring I would make bank, since I had a decent haul of cool vintage stuff – a sequin leopard mini skirt, a neon techno-tribal silk dress, some awesome 70s blouses – the usual.  But if you’ve ever sold your clothes before, you know exactly how it went.  It’s a lot like that scene in Portlandia:  the employees generally make fun of every item you have (while you timidly defend your taste “that was for a themed party… the theme was ‘cats'”), then explain to you, in a tone usually reserved for five-year-olds who eat crayons, “your stuff wouldn’t really sell here…” though you aren’t sure what would, since over half the merchandise is covered in nasty stains, falling apart at the seams, or both (yay!).  Eventually, they return most of your items to you except a couple of Gap t-shirts you weren’t actually intending to sell, they just missed the laundry basket (no one said you were an NBA all-star!) and hand you $5.43 in store credit.

This sweet 90s tribal print miniskirt was one of my rejected items.  As you can see, it looks great for daytime with a pair of flats:The high waist is great for tucking a shirt into, or it can be worn casually with the shirt untucked:It even looks great with heels (though I don’t know what wouldn’t look great with these awesome Zara heels):And you can tuck the shirt back in if it’s Friday night and you’re going all out:forever 21 top (similar here) and teardrop pendant, vintage skirt and bag, low luv triangle necklace, asos watch and spike bracelet, neon bracelet from bauble bar, custom spike friendship bracelets from my little fisheye shop (and DIY here), vintage sperry topsiders (my grandma’s) / zara sandals

So I decided not only would I hold on to this skirt, I would show that resale shop what they’re missing!  Seriously, who wouldn’t take this??

open weave

forever 21 anorak and sweater, thrifted diane von furstenberg skirt, vintage clutch, zara sandals, custom spike friendship bracelets from my little fisheye shop, neon cord bracelet from bauble bar, similar here.

I’m embracing the sporty feel of this open-weave sweater.  It makes a great boxy silhouette paired with this vintage skirt.  And I’m sorry about the anorak overload in recent posts, I just can’t get over how I can throw it on over anything for a totally effortless look.

Happy Friday (the 13th)!!

I just got back to Denver (and a reasonably speedy internet connection) last night.  Now for reminiscing while I look back on photos of myself in paradise…

Happy no pants tuesday!
