Yes – I went there. I took this eensie weensie bodycon skirt and made it a tube top. I’ve been feeling the hipster-spice girl vibe lately. I practically wear these Berkshire Anklet Socks with everything. Lipton Publicity provided me with a number of pairs as a road test sampling – I can’t get enough! They are so soft, airy and comfortable. They’re the perfect accessory for these Steve Madden loafers!
Okay, it’s true – fisherman caps are my new obsession. I’ve always been known as “The Hat Girl”. Since I was a baby I’ve been wearing hats of all sorts, so when I saw this chic cap from Tenth Street Hats I had to have it. The same goes with this cozy teddy bear jacket I scored for 50% off at H&M (who needs a purse when your pockets are this big!?). All about dem steals!
I will admit – I over wear this jacket. You could say our bond is like that of a squirrel with nuts in winter – unbreakable (I have no idea where that analogy came from). This was my grandfathers jacket from back in the 50s when he served in the army. Pretty neat, right? Most people are pretty surprised by that. I’ve managed to make it into a vintage fashion statement shocker and match it with just about everything. The rest was history!
p.s. – the first day I wore these tights I tore a hole in them (typical), and so instead of throwing them away, I tore more! Now I have a sick nasty pair of badass punk tights.
I fell in love with this dress as soon as I laid eyes on it, but it also immediately became problematic. It’s completely made out of mesh and came with no insert piece to hide everything going on underneath. I figured the dress was worth the trouble and went on an intensive hunt for a black slip – but I fell short. Oddly enough, I threw the dress on over some jeans and came out with this little number. I decided to keep it low-key casual this New Year instead of falling into the stereotypical glitz and glam that surrounds it. Black and red is timeless. Sadly, these heels are no longer available from Urban, so I was unable to link them, but I added in a cute winter alternative up there. (I scored these babies on a last minute clearance sale for $19it’s too bad they hurt like a bitch. )
