sweet and salty

Listen, I like a skirt as much as the next girl but I don't (generally) like when it looks too sweet. So today I took a fluffy lace skirt and added some edge.

Much better.

Today's look was inspired by a great new site I found:
They've got clothes for any occasion but I was especially drawn to the sequins (shocking, I know)

 These 2 dresses are from

black hole sun.. glasses

Of all the clothes I own, in all the different colors, I still love wearing all black. I just can't help myself. And sunglasses. All the sunglasses.

so fresh.

OK, here's the thing about this look. None of these clothes are new.. it's all the same old stuff that I go to time and time again.

However !...

You can freshen up an old outfit by adding new small touches. In this case it's leather palm gloves and a funky hairdo.

And as usual, don't forget to smirk and pose.

contextual healing

Let's talk for a minute about context. When shopping for clothes,  you need to be able to imagine individual items not in the context of the store they're in, but how they will look in the context of your closet.

For example..

Here I am wearing a men's shirt from the thrift store and thrift store pumps. The skirt and jacket are from a cheap, Jr's retailer (think ForeverWhatever). Those stores might appear overall not to have anything for you, but try to imagine individual pieces not crammed into overwhelming racks and racks of inappropriate items, but instead fitting into your wardrobe. With that in mind, you can find clothes in basically any store.

nifty thrify

New Year, new photo format. We're movin' up in the world, kids.

Got everything but the shoes at the thrift store. Second hand is a great way to go to find one-of-a-kind pieces for a steal.

new year glam

Happy New Year!

I spent New Years Eve at my local bar, nothing fancy. But I did, of course, dress extra fancy. To me, NYE is the perfect excuse to wear something over-the-top, even if everyone else is in jeans..which they were.

 Big hair!
