Leopard and lace





50 Dresses leopard dress with lace inset on the front. I have been working with versions of this dress for a while, and finally fished it out of the “finish later” pile. I love the stretch black lace at the front and how it balances the scoop back. It’s elastic at the waist and very comfortable. Sometimes I want to feel fancy and dressed up, but also as comfortable as if I was lounging in a muumuu. Actually sometimes that is the only way I will go out at night, so this dress is the solution.

I’m LOVING these new Jenni Kayne navy patent gladiator sandals (from last season, but found on eBay), but still coveting a pair of her d’orsay flats. S.W.O.R.D. leather jacket, Italian leather purse from my sister. Gold key-hole earrings from Nasty Gal. 50 Dresses leather hair tie wrap.

Hanae Mori Vintage sunglasses I found in a thrift store years ago. They are polarized and incredible. New Mexican medicine bag I found in my childhood jewelry box. Sperry Top Sider boaties, Simply Vera black stretch jeans, S.W.O.R.D leather jacket, Hanes boy’s shirt, Stella & Dot earrings. In other news, I finally got a haircut!



20130224-132523.jpgFound this great Woolrich shirt at my $1.49-per-pound Goodwill, so it likely cost $.57. I never would have found/bought it via the traditional shopping route, and I’m reminded of why I love thrift hunting. I’m wearing it with a black cashmere sweater underneath so it operates as a jacket. This bag is an amazing gift from my sister’s trip to Italy a few years back and I want to use it forever. Jeans, boots, sunnies are staples.

Rings and Crop Tops


20130217-192849.jpgI’m excited about rings and crop tops for the spring! I also should think about painting my nails sometime, yikes. Wearing a new crop top (thrifted), S.W.O.R.D jacket, Railcar Donna high waisted jeans, and Sperry white boat shoes (ebay!) Rings are L-R: gold signet ring from my grandma, turquoise thrift store find, Etsy knuckle rings, my mom’s New Mexican vintage stunner, and Rossmore ring chain (loving it). My sister bought this leather clutch in NY years ago and it fits my Kindle like a glove!
