Retro Gold

It’s hard not to look at this outfit and see the belt right away. I wanted that to be a focal point and keep everything else really casual. I found it while on one of my thrifting outings in Little Rock.

I’m not sure if any of you have ever been to Roy Dudley’s Estate Sales over off Rebsamen Park but it’s one of the many I frequent. I know it’s hard to find thrifting places sometimes but if you live in the area I can always list out place if you’re interested.

Anyways.. Back to my outfit! Besides the awesome belt I found I thrifted this leather black skirt from Goodwill – I will always love leather pieces cause they’re classic and can be a great staple piece in anyone wardrobe (or faux leather pieces)

I wanted this outfit to be all about texture and bring attention to my statement belt. Instead of pattern I added a jean top to bring out the warmness of the gold and leather in the belt. Sometimes less pattern isn’t a bad thing if you think of your outfit in textures and shades.

I was inspired by a Versace ad I saw awhile ago that had a belt similar. Now obviously I wasn’t going to wear exactly what I saw in the ad but It’s always nice to have inspiration. I like to always think of the overall feel if I get inspired by an outfit instead of directly copying it – that way you make it your very own.

I hope you have a great week – If there’s any great inspirational pictures out there I’d love to see some maybe for future outfit ideas.

XOXO ,

The great thing about fashion right now is that a lot of vintage items are coming back. There’s so many pieces that you can find thrifting that would look like something you could buy full price now. I saw this top while out at some yard sales – It’s a Top Shop shirt from the 90’s and It is a staple piece for me now. I wanted to show off the sheerness and since the pattern is fun I paired it with a lace black bralette I got from Aerie.

I love seeing how people pair thrifted items and I’m going to start sharing some of my finds when I get them. So on a second day of the week look out for some of my posts on my favorite finds of the month!

I hope everyone has a great week – Let’s start this Monday off on a good note!:)

Fun in Fringe

One of the hardest parts about doing pictures is location and obviously living in a smaller city it can complicate things – For this particular one we had seen this old garage door covered in vines while we were yard sale’ing and it was to perfect not to use.

The outfit I wore I wanted  to keep it casual but fun. Layering in the hotter days of the year is hard cause you really have to find cooler pieces. This scarf is one I’ve had for quite a while. I thrifted it back in high school but it’s still one of my all time favorites because of the little orange and gold embellishments.

I hope everyone is doing well. I’ve been having a lot of new photo ideas and I can’t wait to see what these next months holds!

Have a great rest of your week!:)

Faded Pink

This was such a fun concept to shoot. We wanted to find a really light wall that would contrast the texture of the faux fur. I’ve been pretty obsessed with this specific shade of pink, so when I saw this coat I had to have it!  Fur can be a hard thing to pair when you don’t want to be over the top, but you  still want to be stylish. Since this fur was colored I wanted to pair it with black and gray so it was toned down but would still pop!  If you ever question your outfit just remember a lady back in the day, for example  Audrey Hepburn – Would it still look classic or timeless even if she had wore it? Now obviously the cargo pants she wouldn’t have worn but just think about the overall esthetic.

Oklahoma City

I really loved being able to do pictures in another city again. Oklahoma City has a flat landscape but really interesting architecture. I wanted to showcase that in my pictures as well as my outfit. I really enjoy the nude color tops, especially paired with a tight pencil skirt. It’s sexy but not over the top. It’s classic. I paired this outfit based on shades of blue, the nude as the neutral and to add some simple pattern I wore the ascot. The richness of the navy blue velvet really pulled it all together and added a contrast with all of my light pieces.

 

Nude top – Goodwill : $3.50

Ralph Lauren Velvet skirt – Goodwill : $5.00

Blue peacoat – Given to me by a really sweet co- worker!

It’s been snowing a lot here in Little Rock but I finally got to do a little outfit shoot. I found this red skirt at the Goodwill in Hot Springs, and I loved the pattern and the color. Since I was going to be on my feet all day, I wore my black Calvin Klein kitten heels -Calvin Klein has the most comfortable heels to work in!
I hope everyone has been doing well. I know I’ve been getting a lot of questions about where my weekly posts have been. I decided to take a break from blogging for a bit, but I’m getting back into it. I can’t wait for the spring and better weather!
