Paisley .

its been TOO long guys & i apologize for the delay .
I guess i was waiting for a decent camera but I
started playing w| my mother's and I got some great shots
of an OUTFIT i wore last fri . -- all the pictures were taken w| 
her camera except the 1st one . (that's a blackberry shot]

I decided to be daring despite the fact
that people don't understand where
i get my COMBINATIONS from -- i guess i just don't care anymore .

... I think that's a good thing . 
paisley jacket -- Burlington
lime & gray tank -- F21
watch -- my mom's
(closeup of the watch]
 i love the BIG stones

 booties -- charlotte russe
bag -- etsy.com
 i LOVE LOVE LOVE the scrunched detail
on the back of these booties.

 i thought it was soo cute that
the bag was actually a mini
picnic basket. ADORABLE !!

hope you guys ENJOY, gimme feedback.



live it, love it, wear it.

  15. Your combinations are just admirable.
    I'm never that creative to even attempt it, but I do love that bag/basket though.

    Makes me want one - I can picture myself strutting my stuff with it :-)

    loooooooove the jacket!

  16. i personally LOVE mixing prints. when everyone starts to like and understand everything you wear, that just means you're playing it safe. and there's nothing wrong with that, but there's also nothing wrong with standing out. you look great!

  17. THANKS EVERYONE FOR THE COMMENTS SO FAR !
    @cello-in : you just have to go for it i guess ! before I started thrifting I started playing with prints and colors. I HATE when things are so matchy matchy all the time , it annoys me . I normally find a color that is similar or close in the two fabrics and go from that .

    @simplychic : thanks for the encouragement .

  18. hey! the thrift stores i go to are goodwills, salvations and regular thrift stores just like them. I manage to find vintage by keeping an eye out for the tags. Make sure to check them, most the time i can see an outfit and tell its vintage but check the tag to reassure it. i just bought a dress last month and the designer is Lew Magram, i literally googled the name in the thrift store haha and for sure it is. i hope this helps! i'm complete opposite i never do shopping on etsy..but i think i'll start checking into it more!
