Something Old, Something New is the personal style blog of Tookie Too.  The blog is where she showcases her personal style, and affinity for mixing thrifted, vintage inspired clothing with modern, trendy pieces.

Birthday Style

I was honored to have the opportunity to style this young lady for her 22nd birthday celebration.  She wanted to be super girlie and cute, and I know that we achieved this look.  She looked and felt just like a Princess on her big day.

What I Wore To A Speaking Engagement

Hey guys, I wanted to do a full post with outfit details of what I wore to speak for the Bloggers & Media Personality Meet and Greet.

What was most important in picking the perfect outfit was wearing something that was essentially me.  The outfit had to embody Something Old, Something New.  So I wore vintage and thrifted pieces, as well as trendy cute pieces from H&M, Topshop and Forever 21.

Accessorizing with Blazers

Accessorizing can give outfits loads of textures and character with ease, as well as give you completely different looks while only alternating one or two elements.

Have you ever picked out an outfit and as you're walking out the door you see other accessory options that will work just as well with the outfit that you're wearing??  Well that happened to me this particular day.

I was pretty much sold on the classic look of my black and white cardigan.  I wanted to give my look texture so I paired this somewhat soft look with my snakeskin sandals.  I felt the outfit had great balance, but still lots of character.

How about we add some color...

With a quick blazer and sandal switch, I created a vibrant summertime look.  I changed into a thrifted 90s vintage blazer and a pair of metallic bronze ankle sandals for a fun after work look.

Floral Jumpsuit

Hey guys on this particular day I wore this outfit to mainly test it out with the red lip.  Usually I do a nude or soft pink lip with this floral jumpsuit, but I just wanted to see how it would look with my beloved RiRi Woo.  I think the red lip gives the jumpsuit a dressier feel.  What do you think?
