the art of shopping

Finally found the perfect breton stripe shirt.
When I say finally, I mean this search has gone on years.
Yes, I could have searched on the internet, clicked buy, and had it delivered on my doorstep in 3-5 business days...but what's the fun in that.
I'm not sure why, but I insist on searching and hunting and waiting and forgetting and then remembering and then finding.
But I guess when all is said and done, I know that I am sure that I want what I finally found.

every day of the week

I need another pair of lace up boots like I need another hole in my head....
These are soooooo good!
Perfectly worn and distressed with a really good heel.
Perfection if you ask me!
You can find them here!

now and later

Two things that I'm excited about.

1.) Wearing scarves. The resurgence on the runway got me digging through my vintage archives.

2.) These shoes. From the 1940's. That feel so fresh and relevant at this very moment.

white night

I can never get enough of street style. Especially of the Stockholm variety.

good feeling

My interest is usually sparked by nostalgia. My love and affection for vintage are tell tale signs of that. It's pretty cool when little pieces of yesteryear hit closer to home and ignite memories of my younger days. 
This collection completely made me think of my version of the early 90's.

And by my version of the 90's I mean the.....
Hanes A-Tanks
Metallic Leather
Grandmothers 40's Graphic Printed Blouses and Dresses
Grandfathers Golf Trousers and Sweaters
Mom's 70's Garb
Skate Sneakers

Which is exactly what Marc did. He tapped into a part of my adolescence that immediately brought me back to Delia's catalogs/Sassy magazine/Shopping at Merry-Go-Round/Listening to Violent Femmes and Sonic Youth on repeat/Walking to 7-11 for Jolt Cola and the hopes to "run into" the cute boys skateboarding.
Good Times....good times, indeed.

Two streetstyle looks that stuck out to me during NYFW.
Pretty basic but their genuine smiles really elevate their ensembles to something very special.

I  really like the layering on top of overalls.
The mom like high heeled flip flops..not so much.

Sometimes Always

Gotta love finding late nineties minimalist heels at the thrift shop instead of shelling out the money for pretty much the same pair at Zara. And god bless denim on denim outfits.
