Jeffrey Campbell

I was going to title this post "Lusting", but since I've used that before I figured I'd head over to the thesaurus to spice things up a bit. And maybe it is just due to my love of vampire movies, but "thirst" really popped out at me. As did these Jeffrey Campbell boots when I was browsing the Nordstrom website. So I put the two together. Enjoy.

New Slang

Soft Grunge festival fashion
 90s grunge

(Albertus Swanepoel for Target Hat/ PacSun Crop Top/ La Lune Vintage Flannel/ DIY Vintage Shorts)

 The only bummer about styling vintage pieces for my shop is I always end up wanting to keep them. Luckily the initial sadness is soothed by knowing that someone else will have as much fun styling them as I did. Not only that but they'll be able to call the piece there own, and avoid the detachment that is often felt toward clothes you know you are not going to be able to live in time and time again. 

This outfit totally plays into my continued mini-obsession with the 90s. And although the song I chose with this look isn't actually from that era, it still gives off that depressive "everything sucks" vibe that the 90's seemed to dig so much.

May Wishlist

May wishlist

Here are a few things I've had my eye on lately. Now that the sun has finally arrived I'm tempted to reach for bright colors and pastels, something that I've rarely done in the past but am looking forward to playing with this spring and summer.

1. I'm obsessed with all things tie-dye this spring, and this tee UNIF expresses that "whatever" attitude of a 90's summer.
2. Quite frequently, while getting dressed, I realize how much better certain outfits would look if I swapped out basic leggings or tights for a pair of garter leggings. I like these ones from Love Culture, and the price is right.
3. Really digging kawaii nails right now. Etsy has a plethora of them, like these from ElluminationsND.  
4. OMGOMGOMG Deandri! 'Nuff said.

 Tank- Pacsun
Pants- PLNDR
Shoes- Jeffrey Campbell

Ideally I'd have plenty of time to get ready and choose a creative outfit every day. Realistically I have days where I don't have that luxury for any number of reasons, however most often a result of oversleeping. While I've finally come to a point in my life where oversleeping has become more of a rarity (thanks to four consecutive alarms set on my phone), it is still nice to be able to throw on a few comfortable basics in a rush and head out the door. 

On another note, being a fashion documentary junkie and all, I'm super stoked for Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf's. I'll be seeing a screening on May 20th, so be sure to check back after that date to hear what I think of the film!
