It’s Monday. Let’s rock this shit.
I’m a skirt and dress kind of gal. Overall, this is true, but it is especially so during the warmer months. I’m not sure what happened this year, but I’ve been really digging cute shorts paired with lace tights. I’m also really loving rompers for the first time ever, too. I never thought I would feel sexy or badass in shorts*, but I’m glad to be proven wrong.
Have you had any fun fashion discoveries lately?
* I grew up during a time where I witnessed and possibly participated** in a ton of really hideous jean shorts action.
** This participation may have scarred my ego.
Today I’m feeling inspired by these badass ladies in their road trip gear. The sunglasses and jumpsuits are especially lovely. I wonder where they were headed?
*I can’t find the original photo source for this! If this image happens to belong to you, and you would like to receive credit, or have this image removed, please contact me and I will do so. Thanks!
This vintage 1920s Halloween dress makes my head spin with delight. The shape, the colors, the design, the owls. It’s all very dreamy and incredible. It’s making my head swirl with images of vintage-inspired Halloween wear that will hopefully come to fruition this fall.
These photos are of the gorgeous Rhiannon Macbeth of Garb-Oh Vintage, who also happens to be a fellow Portlander. They are part of her Vintage Self set on Flickr, which showcases her amazing vintage style. Also, her vintage Etsy shop is dreamy, so be sure to check it out.
I am loving this casual yet chic two-piece summer ensemble from the 1940s. Makes me wish I was having a frolicking picnic on the shore.
Well, I did it! This weekend I had my hair cut into a bob… and I am absolutely in love with my new hairdo. It’s a nice change.
After I left the salon, I picked out some new vintage eyeglass frames to match my new ‘do. I will show you guys when they come back in a few weeks with my prescription in them.
Well, it’s the middle of summer, which means it’s time for me to daydream about shorter hair again. I stumbled across these lovely photos the other day, and although I’m a little scared (I’ve had really long hair for years), I think I might just go for it! I really love the length and style of the bob on this gorgeous lass.
