Something Old, Something New

Vintage Inspired Dress ft. Charming Charlie

Hey guys, I'm BACKKKK!!!  Sorry if you guys have been feeling a bit deserted by my absence.  I am still here blogging, and styling up outfits with hints of vintage flair.  However, I have been concentrating a lot more on professional styling, and building my online store.

When I first started this blog it was my outlet.  I wanted to tap into my love for fashion, and create a style diary of sorts.  I had begun to challenge myself with style.  I recall attempting to not repeat outfits for an entire year, and I was actually able to do it.  So then I thought maybe I should document this.  Thus was the birth of my personal style blog. 

Fast forward to now, after blogging on and off for nearly 5 years, quitting my legal job and moving to London, I can proudly say that I have a career in fashion, butunfortunately sometimes work doesn't allow me to blog as much.  **priorities man**  However, I promise to work harder to be more visible on this platform.  You guys are my friends, and I love that even when I go on a hiatus, I can always comeback and you all are right here.

Sourcing in Something Old

Hey guys, I have been shopping almost non-stop as of late for my very first editorial shoot, and although it has been a lot of fun, it is also very tiring...hence my face in some of the pictures.

Believe it or not but, it was incredibly hot in London over the weekend.  However, I still don't trust the weather here, so I wanted to dress nice and cool, but just in case the temps started to drop I wanted to be able to cover myself.  I picked up this maxi dress some time ago at a Goodwill for a few bucks.  Usually, I wear it belted at the waist for a dressy look, but this particular day I just wanted to wear it loose because I felt it looked best with the sneakers.   And this comfy look with the sneakers were a must for running around London, and going in and out of the shops down on Oxford Street.

Periwinkle Hues with a Snakeskin Statement

With warmer temps on the rise, I have been scouring thrift stores for dresses and boy have I had some awesome luck.  I found this beautiful dress at the Goodwill for $4.99 (yes people...that cheap).

I paired this simply dress with a snake skin statement necklace from H&M that was gifted to me by a friend.  Snake skin is one of my favorite prints, and oftentimes I wear it as a neutral.  It just seems to work with everything.
