English Country

This outfit makes me think of the English countryside. Even though I've never been, this is so something I would wear if I was to go. I wore this for a lazy sunday afternoon spent walking around, going to second hand stores and having lunch at a cafe.

I just purchased this coat this a little while ago. It was an amazing find because I was really so close to purchasing the babydoll coat from Old Navy. It totally fulfills all my princess coat necessities.I've been looking for a babydoll coat for a while now and found this one at an american aparel store by way of california select(how random?). Apparently the brooklyn flagship store carries California Select Vintage. Its Rothschild and very girly. You can't tell from the photos but on the pocket flaps and the hood there is a layer of velvet. Also on the hood there is a trim following the outline of the hood. It is really adorable. I'll take a photo of it the next time I do an outfit post.

For the longest time I've been feinding for a chunky platforms or wedges. In the summer I wanted a wedge sandal that was chunky but instead I found a pair of wedges that were a bit on the not so chunky side because they were on sale and super cute. Now my cravings have come back. Now more than ever have I wanted something so bad. I've been encountering chunky platforms all over. They are in editorials, in blogs,on runways. We'll see where it takes me and what finds I can come up with. I would absolutely die for the stella mccartney wedges, in mary jane form or ankle bootie form. Or the sonia rykiel wedges, theyr so what I've been looking for.
On a side note: my camera has been acting kind of funny lately so I haven't been able to make any outfit posts lately but hopefully this problem should resolve itself soon.

Random 90's Video Post

Looks like Hercules and Love Affair's "You Belong" video, but that's probably because the video was 90's inspired.

But I haven't got a stitch to wear


I recently purchased these oxfords from one of the very few thrift stores in the city called No Relation.They remind me of something Brenda Walsh would have worn with a very body conscoius top and a huge black belt with boyfriend jeans but alas I cannot and will not try the boyfriend jeans on myself because I know that will be a disaster. But I'll always have my florals....

The Spotlight Shines Upon You

Last Monday my friends and I went to go see coldplay. It was a great show(although I really don't like stadium shows) this was pretty good. It was very chilled out and they are really tight with their sound.They had a few surprises like glow and the dark confetti and a dance re-mix to a slow song that sounded pretty amazing.

The weather has changed so drastically since I left for my trip that I went from just wearing sweaters to full on layers of clothes.I'm in such denial that fall isn't so much lingering as its just kind of blowing by(literally). We've been having some crazy wind storms. I love Autumn but not this kind of Autumn. One that is crisp but still warm enough to just walk out with just a really chunky sweater.We have had a few of those days lately but more often than not just really windy, rainy weather.
Jacket: Black Leather Motorcycle jacket(Ebay, boy's section)
Sweater: Tan Cable Knit Chunky Sweater(Forever21)
Tunic: Black Flutter Slv Tunic(???)
Leggings: Black (Forever21)
Shoes: Black Ankle boots(Minnetonka)
Bag: Vintage Cream Quilt tote(Thrifted)

On a side note I have also decided I absolutely can't keep pushing off getting a haircut but I'm so afraid that the stylist is gonna cut the length, when I really just want a trim and layers in the front. I've been growing out my rattail for about 2 years now.
This was taken about 2 years ago. I still love this haircut but it was so hard to maintain.I've been trimming my hair myself but just at the bottom.
Well anyway I have to suck it up and just go.
