Vintage Haul

Hauls, What I Wore

As you all know ( or don’t know) I am in love with everything vintage! I thrift a ton of my clothing because I just love pieces with a story. My favorite fashion era is the fifties because I adore the prim and proper, put together look that women had back then, but I am in love with clothing from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s as well.

Recently I found out that one of the coolest thrift shops in my area is closing for good! This made me extremely sad but I found a silver lining in that they are having a fifty percent off everything sale! So Last week I headed on down to the store and picked up a few vintage gems of my own before it’s all over.

I ended up buying two skirts but wanted to buy so much more. The first one is this 70s plaid number that fits me like a glove. It feels just like I am wearing a blanket but was easily paired with my sunny yellow top and mittens, and my cape style jacket.

Next up was this long pleated skirt of my favorite color. I love the quality of this skirt and the fact that it is so full, but my favorite part would have to be the pockets! I was actually so inspired by this skirt that I decided to create a bunch of different looks with it as soon as I brought it home. This denim jacket and sneakers look is just one of the five looks that you can look out for in a later post.

Though I am sad such an amazing shop is closing for good, I fully intend on going back and taking full advantage of the deals and steals to come! What are some of your favorite eras for fashion? Let me know down below!

Lady in Red

What I Wore

For anyone that couldn’t tell, red is my favorite color of all time. I love bright reds, burgundy, maroon you name it. So for this post I decided to take my obsession to the next level by wearing an entirely red outfit!

Monochromatic outfits are challenging for me because I am truly an introvert although part of me loves to stand out. At times I struggle with confidence and question the brighter, crazier things I want to wear because I know that it will bring attention to me. Thankfully on this day I decided to really just go for it and I am so happy that I did.

It was Christmas Eve that I decided to wear the ultimate Christmas sweater. This knitted homage to Home Alone is one of my all time favorites and makes me laugh every time I read it.

The second I found these burgundy pants I decided to make it an all red lewk. Despite this incredible combo, the shoes are what really brought everything together.

These beauties are actually Hunter by Target rain boot/ sneaker hybrids. They are often the highlight of my outfits simply for the fact that I can find nothing to match them with.

The moment I put this outfit on I knew I had something special because it felt so completely me. Even though I felt this way part of me really wanted to rip the whole thing off and throw on a pair of jeans and neutral shoes instead. But when I feel this way I know that it is just my anxiety speaking, so I wore the outfit.

I wore the outfit and, to be honest, I felt pretty self conscious but I also felt happy and like myself. And it may not seem like such a big deal to others but this small win really made my day.
