zenni optical precrip sunnies, vintage dress from my mom, bluenotes belts worn as a harness, h&m band leader denim jacket, jeffrey campbell litas in black ♥, view the full entry here.


Well, my mom found an old photo...

on the far right you can see my aunt & my mom (in the red) wearing both of those dresses!! haha, what a rockin 70's picture eh? :)

Isn't it funny that when you clean your closet of things that are out of style, it's because they're a couple of years out of date... but if you REALLY wait it out (10 to 20 years lol) they'll maybe come back again? My aunt just gave us a bag full of 90's style dresses & we're loving how so much of it is like "OH! I can see Rachel or Monica wearing this on Friends!" hahah

  4. I LOVE that old photo!

    My sisters and I combed through my parent's photos and put them in albums for xmas last year, and it was so awesome to see bits of them that I didn't know about... that, and since they were both geologists, they were totally rocking the grunge/lumberjack look way before it was trendy. I only wish that they'd kept the plaid shirts for me to steal!

  5. I LOVE to see a vintage piece in it's original form and then restyled. Both dresses are gorgeous, as are you!
    XOXO
