I’m standing in the middle of life with my plans behind me.


White & purple floral print tunic : vintage (70s) from the garment district
Lilac beanie : thrifted

I’ll have more resolutions, eventually, but for now?
2015 = more hats, less pants.

I’m pulling my questions from my shelf

I’m asking forgiveness.


hard rock Hanoi tee : bloodbuzz vintage
floral gauze dress : thrifted (vintage 90s)
destroyed & patched 512s : Levi’s (thrifted vintage 80s)
tooled leather belt : dollar store
studded & buckled ankle boots : ecote
coin necklace & triple layer necklace : forever 21
silver turquoise cuffs : vintage navajo
grey beanie : savers

I've been wearing these jeans a lot lately. They're so goddamn comfortable that I keep trying to pretend I can wear them all year long.
I live in Massachusetts, though, so that's not only unrealistic but also kind of delusional.
But we had a seasonal aberration today: 60 degrees on the Sunday before thanksgiving (not a record, or anything, but plenty weird). So I decided to take advantage & break them out one more time.
I'm sure in a month I'll try to convince myself they can be worn with tights. I'll get dressed, make it all the way to right outside my door & then realize that no, it's twenty degrees out & even with the magic of layering, it'd be crazy to wear them.
I should probably pack them away to save myself the trouble…

she doesn’t need nothing from mine.

skywalker ranch tank : thrifted (yep, I’m a huge nerd)
cotton double layer skirt : love21
oversized double breasted intarsia cardigan : code zero intensity (thrifted 80s)
patent leather bow toe pumps : Salvatore Ferragamo (thrifted vintage)
reptile & suede belt : thrifted vintage
etched brass bangles : thrifted
beaded bone elephant necklace : bloodbuzz vintage
dark moon roach clip necklace : the company of wolves
wide brimmed wool fedora : country gentleman (vintage via buffalo exchange)

I still feel kind of horrible, but I decided to take a different tact. I’m hoping that if I dress up, I’ll feel better.

I think it might be working?

if you say hello & I take a ride

white & black paisley scarf : thrifted
black & grey stripe Henley sweater : American Made by Stefano (thrifted vintage 80s)
destroyed & patched 512s : Levi’s (thrifted vintage 80s)
lace up leather ankle boots : frye (vintage 90s) via buffalo exchange

I’ve been pretty sick lately & the cold weather has made my hip worse, so I’ve been pretty lazy, outfit wise. & comfort has been more important than normal.

So this has kind of been my uniform. Boy fit denim, a sweater or flannel & a head scarf. It works, but I’m eager to go back to (slightly) fancier things.
