I’m one of those people who has a major fondness for old things. Not all old things, but most old things, like typewriters, telephones, vintage glasswear, 1960′s Playboys, my grandma’s jewelry, you know what I’m talking about. I rarely frequent the grungy, really good, thrift stores, either due to lack of access, laziness, or a combination of the two, but my last trip early this week, has made me realize I’ve been doing it all wrong.
For this particular thrift shop extravaganza, I wore my new slip dress because one, I didn’t realize it was chilly outside, and two, slip dresses are the easiest thing to throw on when you’ve been told you have ten minutes to get dressed for spontaneous thrift store shopping.Maybe it’s my lucky thrift store dress, or maybe the thrift store gods were looking down on me, but I found three of the coolest 60′s Playboys that day. I’m talking troves of stories from the likes likes of Ray Bradburry, Ernest Hemingway, Rold Dalh and basically everybody who was anybody. It’s safe to say I’m ready to (carefully) dive into these bad boys. Conveniently there’s no better time than now, because April showers are a very real thing as I write this.
As far as the slip dress is concerned, my favorite way to rock them as of late is with something tied around my waist, and some booties for a little edge. On the flip side, I’m super stoked for these gloomy skies to head on out so I can go for platform sandals and a barely there belt around my waste. because one of these days I’ll acquire a good belt to switch it up.
Every once in a while, that special someone…something…enters your life and you never want to let it go, or stop wearing it. That’s me and my Wildfox sweater right now. From the moment the shopping gods bestowed the new-in-stores-but-magically-half-off sweater upon me, it’s been a struggle to not just wear my new favorite dream cloud all day, every day. So I wear it every other day for good measure. While we’re on the topic of things I can’t stop wearing, you can add this entire outfit to the bill. It’s safe to say this black romper is everything I’ve ever hoped for in a basic piece that I can wear day in and day out. My new-found Free People belt feels like the only accessory I’ll ever need, and my creme Jeffrey Campbells have made a reappearance from the depths of my closet; they’re here to stay. You can believe I’ll be wearing some variation of this look a minimum of once a week, just a warning.
I don’t know if you know this, but pink is kind of my color, and by kind of, I mean the walls of my room are painted the most brilliant shade of hot pink that Behr has to offer. It’s safe to say when Valentine’s month (basically the first two full weeks of February) comes into effect, I let my pink freak flag fly. Step one, painting my nails as pink as my walls. Seriously, minus the glitter, that’s the color surrounding me right now. Jealous?
Give this super easy Valentine’s Day nail art a try, and if you’re not into going all out on lopsided hearts, I promise your nails will feel just as festive decked out in a fun combo of white, baby pink, and hot pink doused in glitter!
To make the hearts, I used the smallest paintbrush I could find and hoped for the best. The white polish is Brigitte, the baby pink polish is Fifi, and the hot pink polish is Maddy. I topped the pink polish off with American Apparel’s glitter, then topped off every nail with American Apparel’s matte top coat.
Matte top coats are my jam right now. Have you used any that you’re super in love with?
We’re back with another episode of “How Does Wildfox Always Make The Best Lookbooks?” with today’s guest, Sarah, who will basically just tell you how much she loves their newest Gypsy lookbook. It’s magical, glorious, and all the other words synonymous with these that I don’t feel like googling. Ok, just a few more…magnificent, marvelous, memorable, and let’s end this with a powerful, majestic. Once you see my favorites, you’ll know what I’m talking about. It’s all glam camping, barely there dreads, and crowns for days on these three gorgeous girls that will make you want to trek into the wilderness for a half-assed re-creation. But seriously, I have to make one of those crowns you’re bound to fall in love with towards the end of the lookbook. I don’t even know what they’re made of, but I need one. I’ll just let you look at these photos now…
P.S. I so seriously recommend you listen to “I Lived” by One Republic while scrolling through these pictures. Promise you’ll love it!
So, do you love it as much as I do?!? And does anyone else want to go egg hunting now? If you want to see the full lookbook, you’ll want to click here.
