age of innocence

Via my Pinterest

I seriously feel like some of my choices in fashion are my way subconsciously to not grow up and feel old. I mean, safety pins...really. But these are so good and it's not like I just want to rip a tshirt up and safety pin it back together...well I kind of do..but I'll refrain...for now. I love the images above because it takes such a simple object and takes it to a higher place. A place that you don't question taste, class, or age. But a place that makes you stand back and admire such complex simplicity.
Now...I kind of feel like I'm making excuses for my need for safety pin experimentation but I'm a grown ass woman and I do what I want.

Cold Front

Besides shoes; coats and jackets(there IS a difference) are the other article of clothing I don't mind spending  a little more on. That being said, all of my picks are from Asos, Zara, and Topshop. So, to some that is still cheap...but for a gal like me that only shops at thrift stores or the vintage shop I work at(i.e., discount)...spending more that $100 on one thing is a big deal!
As I was saying, I'm a shoe and coat/jacket whore.
I have a pretty great collection of vintage coats and jackets for all kinds of elements and in the same, right?!
But..for a lover of outerwear, there is and always will be room for more. 
From the looks below I, apparently, have a hankering for leather sleeves. And a need for something a little more casual and uber-warm. 
Fur lined parka or tailored puffer coat....decisions, decisions.....

dosey doe

For some reason, I always forget about Pixie Market. I really shouldn't. Their website is a great mix of high and low prices and all extremely drool worthy and well edited. These leather overalls are the jumpoff!

wayward sun

I've pretty much got my fall wardrobe on lock down. So I'm trying to acquire more bells and whistles to really make things more interesting. All the above are from Forever 21, sooooo I can buy in bulk.
