total opposites.


That moment you put on a 90’s velvet floral dress and think “you know what would make this look even better?, a snake skin blazer!”. If you’re gonna play around and have fun with fashion just go for it.

I just recently found an oversized black suede bomber jacket that would look totally cool over this dress too. Paired with some sneakers. And hoops. Totally doing it.

pajama dressin'


Pulled this vintage Christian Dior pajama top out from the back of my closet a few weeks ago, because it’s finally “winter” and I can wear long sleeves now without sweating my ass off. And now I want to wear it all the time. Probably one of my favorite finds form our local Salvation Army. I need to know what old lady had this before me, because I need to go raid the rest of her closet.

I’ve been noticing a trend in my closet. Black, white, tan, animal print, and RED. If there’s something red at a thrift store my eye is usually drawn to it. And what’s better than red on red? That’s one way to stand out! I found this in Michigan when we were there this past fall. I knew it would be perfect for the holidays when I spotted it. This is the comfiest fancy set I’ve ever worn. And I love the crossover detail in the top. Paired it with my even fancier gold super pointy mules and vintage geometric earrings. Perfection!
