little white dress

indah dress, urban outfitters shorts, betsey johnson ziah booties (also awesome in leopard), low luv triangle necklace, gifted skull necklace (similar here, here, here), h&m hinged ring, nail rocks wraps in gold, vintage sunglasses, diy serape minaudiere

With the temperature hovering around 100+ degrees in Denver I haven’t been interested in wearing much more than a tee and a pair of cutoffs.  So here is my attempt at making that basic mix a little more fashion-y.  Yes, I just used the word “fashion-y”.  Anyway… this little white dress from Indah is perfect over a pair of shorts (I wouldn’t recommend wearing it without the shorts on a breezy day), plus these dope Betsey Johnson booties.

Happy summer people!

back to basics

h&m blouse and bracelets, american apparel shorts, vintage pearl necklace, low luv triangle necklace, asos watch, vintage bag and shoes, american apparel vintage deadstock sunglasses

Today’s outfit is super-basic so I can show off these American Apparel shorts.  They were a little overpriced, but if you knew how many pairs of high rise cutoffs I’ve tried on searching for the perfect ones, you’d completely understand.  I was basically willing to trade my left kidney (it’s the weak one) for a pair of denim shorts that didn’t strangle my thighs and overexpose my cellulite.  Here they are!!

On another note, I decided to try a new makeup look today.  Normally I play up my eyes, but today I really craved a clean face with a bold red lip.  I like it, and the lack of eye makeup is great for those spontaneous crying fits (hey, no judgies!).

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??

today

h&m jacket, forever 21 tank, skirt, and teardrop pendant, low luv triangle necklace, vintage bag and rings, asos watch and spike bracelet, zara sandals

A waterfall skirt has to be the best thing to wear on a breezy day – especially one this light and sheer, with a stay-put under layer of course.  I’m getting a lot of use out of my new Zara sandals; they manage to function as a neutral and a statement piece at the same time, which I really dig.  I toned down the fanciness of the flowy skirt and heels with casual black accessories and a jean jacket.
