Something Old, Something New

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.

Get Sporty

These fun colored sneaks are by far my favorite recent purchase.  They are super cute, comfy and I scored them at a really awesome price (high fives all around).  Being that I'm getting a little older I can not don my signature 6" stilettos as often anymore so my style has taken a sharp turn down comfort lane.

Extra-Ordinary Camoflauge

Hey guys, sorry for my short hiatus since the holidays.  Hope you guys didn't miss me too much.  It has been so cold that I really haven't been able to get out and take outfit post pictures like I really want to.  However, I did manage to pull this look off with one of my favorite new thrift store finds and my go to burgundy hat. 

Since the holidays I have put on a few pounds, so I have been playing the great camouflage game as far as my wardrobe is concerned.  This extra long duster was a must buy when I came across it.  It was over sized and I figured the bold vertical stripes would create the perfect illusion.

Target Finds

Hey guys, I wanted to write this post to piggyback off my last blog post featuring the orchid print sweatshirt from the Altuzarra for Target collection.  I wanted to post pictures taken while in Target's dressing room, as well as pictures from the collection's lookbook.

I only ended up purchasing the black sweatshirt. I didn't think the items in store matched the pictures, mainly regarding fabric quality.  I did, however like the booties that I wore in the pictures, but I put off buying them that day and now I can't find them anywhere.

Here's another look at the one item that I want from the collections that I didn't purchase.  I spied this pair on eBay, wish me luck as I am in a bidding war someone as I type.  Please share your thoughts, I am very interested in hearing them.  Thanks.

Here are a few sale items from the collections. Happy Shopping!!!

Floral Focal Point

Hey guys!! This outfit is the essence of what my style aesthetic is.  It's comfortable and practical (the sweater), with with a hint of vintage prints (the skirt).

Some of you may recognize the black orchid sweater as a one of the capsule pieces from the Altuzarra for Target collection.  I was able to recently purchase it on clearance.  The skirt is old, I got it at my neighborhood Goodwill.

On the Go

There is really nothing that can come between me and this hat.   Since I still work a  corporate job I really don't have much freedom during the week with my wardrobe, but that doesn't say anything about my weekend wear.   I wear this hat every weekend.  It is my all time favorite addendum to my fall wardrobe this year.

Black and white are my go to color combinations this season, and I love to pair it with any pop of color.   My shoes offer a pop of color, while my hat acts as a statement piece.  Burgundy is a color that I have been treating like a neutral this season.  It just seems to work so well with other neutrals.  You should try it.

Face Off - Black and White Pants

Hey guys!!! I hope your week has been productive and filled with lots of love.   In this post I wore one of my favorite, most comfortable pairs of pants.   Not only are these pants comfortable, but they are great for color blocking and monochromatic looks.  Another awesome attribute of these pants is their length.  They are a great length for heels, flats and even sneakers.
