i trust all of you had a safe and fantastic fourth of july weekend…?
mine was great! full of relaxing, a little thrifting, TONS of food, too much traffic (not cool), decent (but not great) weather…all with WrW and our wonderful friends, alison and daveed.
i have a few photos, but i’ll share them later this week.
recently, WrW and i saw goldfrapp at the hollywood bowl. i’m always amazed by how many people have never heard of her.
if you don’t know who she is, check her out! i see her as a cross between lady gaga and debbie harry. what’s not to love about that?? listen below!
fabulous, huh? she’s amazing, live.
on the way to the concert, WrW took this dope shot of me in the subway…
i love the movement of it.
ever have one of those last-minute wardrobe changes that you wish you’d never made?
this happened to me that night.
originally, i had the oversized blazer you see in the photos, belted with a long, gold chain necklace…
but for some reason, on our walk to the subway, i switched it up by removing the “belt” and wearing the blazer open.
i now see that belted was better.
oh well. ya live, ya learn.
blazer – thrifted (for sale in the shop!)
vneck tshirt – american apparel
denim stirrup leggings – local boutique
wedges – vintage, bought from etsy
belt/necklace – thrifted
yes, i’m selling the blazer. but not because i don’t LOVE it…because it’s a tad too big on me. if i had the balls, i’d wear it as a mini…sooo hot. any takers? i dare ya… *wink wink*
alright, so here are the new items…
1. 80s working girl floral print dress
2. dark teal vintage summer dress
3. oversized slouchy floral blazer
come take a look!
and thanks SO MUCH for all the lovely “scarf love” comments. if you try the modified suspenders…please, send me photos! i’d love to see how you wear it!
a few of you asked how to do it…
first of all, it works best with a long, narrow scarf. put it around your neck and tuck the ends into your high waist skirt, jeans, shorts, or trousers! add a belt to hold the scarf in place.
the scarf as a cumberbund is equally as simple. unfold the scarf, so that it is wide, wrap around your waist, and tie in the back. add a belt for an extra pop of color.
also, some new readers have left comments this weekend…hello and welcome! i can’t wait to check out your blogs, too!
lots of fun things planned this week…more new items, guest blogging, and a surprise!
