Something Old, Something New

Safe Places in Leather

Guys, I had the most insane thought a few moments ago...I actually considered starting a new blog anonymously .  For some strange reason I felt reservations about being completely transparent on this platform.  Honestly, I felt an inkling of fear about being myself and sharing here on my very own blog, but why?? Especially since I've been blogging for 5 years.

If you know me personally then you know that I am incredibly accommodating, so in my mind, I thought that maybe since this is a fashion and style blog that you guys wouldn't be interested in hearing a rant or talk about my personal development.  Over time, as I've gotten older, I have done quite a bit of psychological work to become this strong mind individual.  And although, I may seem detached and rather reserved when interacting with others, I am very in tuned with myself.  Please let me know if you would be interested in more personal content, along with outfit posts.  I want this blog to be a safe place for all of us to share our amazing style, as well as personal testaments.  Overtime, I learned that on the surface we may seem different, but we are all really similar and share many of the same struggles.  Here's to knowing a little bit more about the sharply dressed young lady in all of these photos.

Outfit time:::  I'm sporting one of my favorite vintage blouses.  I just love the elegance that the pussy-tie bow gives.  This blouse is also 100% silk, and feels absolutely amazing on my skin.  I know I thrifted it years ago, but I can't recall from where.  I do, however, know exactly where this awesome pink leather skirt is from.  I bought this beauty in the Zara sale many years ago.  I would like to add that you may never know the many outfit options a pink leather skirt can provide until you own one.  The possibilities are endless guys.  I vote pink as a new neutral.

Wacky Holiday Outfit

Tis the season guys, so I am back with another outfit post.  However, this post serves a different purpose meaning that it's not meant to be so cute.  This is an outfit that I would wear if I were invited to a holiday party that I didn't want to go to.  It's sort of meant to shame the person that's making me tag along. hahaha. Have a looksie, and tell me what you think of the outfit.

Looking back on these pictures, I actually like this outfit alot.  Maybe minus the oversized sweatshirt, but still a great look.  Those tights are so festive and cute, and my black brogues are second to none in my wardrobe.  I scored the tangerine rollneck at my local Salvation Army on 50% off day, and I have been wearing it non-stop every since.  The satin skirt is an oldie, but goodie from The Gap.
