So as of late my camera's battery decided to completely give up on me. It's dead and there's no reviving it. It really puts a damper on my listing things to sell in addition to outfit posts. I can't really blame this problem on my absence since March(?). That's another story but I've decided to dig into my archived outfits that I never got around to posting. They're all pretty much from the winter. It is a little bit of a downer because all anyone seems to be thinking about(including myself) is Spring but they are outfit posts nonetheless.




Top:Ivory Lace Bodysuit(Strawberry's)
Skirt:Black Denim Circle Skirt(H&M)
Tights:Black Opaque(H&M)
Shoes:Black Suede Ankle Wedge Boots(Office)
Bag:Vintage Quilt Chainlink purse(Thrifted)
Hairclip:Velvet Bow(Ann Belen)

My Loss Your Gain

It's time to do some spring cleaning and clean up the big old mess that has become my closet. With less going into storage due to seasonless dressing(i.e. summer dresses in the winter, sweaters on cold summer nights). It's become hard to manage the damn thing. I'm going to start off with shoes because well theres never enough room for shoes.

First up are one of my more favorite shoes I own. I bought these circa the chanel runway and scored them before it was impossible to find them for lower than a triple digit price. I was very lucky.
They are Vintage Colin Stuart. A size 8( but can fit a 7.5).They have a great tan leather. Just know that these were really loved by me so they do have some wear and tear(but very minor).
Shipping: $12.00

Next up are a rather recent purchase that I made. They were scored from the infamous LF end-of-season sale. I love these and they look great with an all black ensemble.
They are the limited edition Jeffrey Campbell "Alexa" wedges that were inspired by the Acne Atacoma wedges. They are Patent leather and are a size 8(they fit true to size).
Price: $50.00 valued at $195.00
Shipping: $12.00

Up Next are my favorite lace up heeled combat boots ever!!!
I've had these for a long while now and really love them!!! They were great to match with floral dresses and denim jackets.
They are the famous "Little J" Nine West boots that were so publicized.
They are super comfy and are great for walking(if your not a big heel wearer these are great). They are a size 8(I believe) and have some wear in them.

Next are these H&M wedges that are sold out everywhere.
They came out last spring and were great to wear with black tights or without.
They have a gladiator inspired look to them and look great with everything.
They are a size 7 which run kind of big for H&M so if your a small 8 these will fit just fine.The top part is a great black leather and the wedge part is made of canvas.
Shipping: $12.00

This is based on a first come first serve basis. All you have to do is leave a comment in the comment section with your e-mail address and which pair of shoes you want.I am flexible with price so if theres a price you would like to negotiate I am willing to work with you within reason. Shipping fee is based on Priority Flat rate through USPS and should ship within 2-3 business days based on when payment is cleared. I accept paypal or money order. Only available within the United States. (I'm so sorry to all of you who are outside of the U.S.)

Good Luck!!!

Maximum Coverage


Lately I have been on a Maxi Binge. I didn't fully commit to this trend but I have a few pieces that are awaiting their exposure from the old closet.Maxi dresses/skirts are not new to fashion trends because they've been on the radar for quite some time now but this modest look has a new face. Less bohemian, more minimalist.I've never really approached the maxi because any time I've come across something it's always been the same thing. Cut at the empire, flares out exaggeratedly.It was a look that didn't suit well for me.I would always look for something that was cut at the small of the waist or something straight so I could belt it to create a silhouette that would work for my frame but was always unsuccessful. Until last year. I found this amazing sheer gauzy maxi in a paisley print at forever21.It was perfect because it was straight and allowed me to play with the silhouette.However this year the more body conscience the better. It's due to the fact that Sweden is THE place to get your source of inspiration and lately Swedes have been pulling out the goth goddess look. Its a formula that works so amazingly well. It's all about getting the right silhouette. Whether it's vintage, a stripe version or plain old jersey scoop neck one thing if for sure the maxi is not going anywhere.

From the Heavens


I came across these gorgeous hybrids when I was reading a post on Ringo, Have a Banana. I saw these along with a slue of other shoes for the Opening Ceremony Spring collection. It was the tiniest of a shot of them and you could hardly see the details but I knew that they were my "Sole" mates(a little dorky word play).It's so strange how O.C. really tapped into my psyche on this one.It's like they took everything that I love about shoes and put it into this heaven sent ankle boot. Well one day as I was looking for clog boots (N0.6, you are no match for me)I was reintroduced to them I didn't realize that they had already stocked the website with the collection. I am so enamored I was really thinking about spending such a ghastly(for me at least)price.But as always the conscience, it is a guilty one. Anyone know of a similar option?

Two Lovers Intwined Pass Me By

I wore this out to go to a friend's house party and then to a bar in the LES. At one point in the night I got beer/alcoholic concoction spilled on my t-shirt that I hadn't gotten a chance to wear before then. I was bummed for like two minutes because it seemed like it disappeared but then the following day I realized how bad it was in broad daylight and I was super bummed but I hand washed it and got most of it out. Aaah the casualties of drinking!!!

Sweater:Dark Gray Slub Cardigan(Forever21)
T-shirt:Smiths "Meat is Murder" T(Flea Market)
Skirt:Black Bandage skirt(H&M)
Tights:Black opaque(H&M)
Socks:Black Ankle Scallop Socks(H&M)
Shoes: Black Suede Wedge Ankle Boots(Office UK)
Bag:Vintage Black Quilt Bag

I've got my eye on you


I saw these on the Office website back in the fall and was unsure of whether to get them. (I'm not one for the UK shipping fees). When one day they had vanished in the size 8 that I was ogling for over a month. The pang of regret immediately came a-rushing.I started doing searches all over the web to find them or something that was anything similar but alas, nothing. Well the retail gds have answered my prayers and lo and behold one day as I kept going back to the Office website I finally saw they had restocked these awesome boots.I quickly reached for my wallet and made the purchase with shipping fees and all. After a short while of waiting for them to arrive and no sign of any shipping information I e-mailed them inquiring about any sort of information and I got a response saying that I would get them in about a month? A month??? Can you imagine my astonishment? Well I figured that's what you get for ordering something from the UK. Then on one fine(rainy)Saturday I heard my bell ring and there he was the man I was waiting for with a package delivered from across the pond.And it wasn't even a month that had gone by. I was soo happy I wore them out that night.
P.S. I'm not sure if this was intentional on Office's part but these totally resemble the YSL ankle boots seen on(who else but) MK.

Everybody Watusi

After a while of hearing about The Drums and how good they are I finally got down to hearing their stuff and at first I didn't really think much about it but now about a few months later I'm drawn and going to their show in a few weeks.In addition to that a few weeks back I went to this little hidden party at Fontana's and they were playing a bunch of songs from the late 50's early 60's. The combination of the two has really gotten me into a surf rock, twist-y kind of vibe and this is what I've been listening to lately:

another modern band feeling the 50's vibe
