Outfits Only

Going to keep this short & sweet.  Just a little outfit recap.

First off is these sweet vintage overalls I got of Etsy with a thrifted vintage 80s Cozumel souvenir t-shirt with sweet white piping.  I would like to say that while I have not been to Cozumel, I have been to Mexico, so I feel the shirt is warranted.  Also, I love it.

Next, my vintage skirt that was a hand me down from my mom:

Wearing lots of vintage, second-hand, and gifted accessories.  Old thrifted Dawn of the dead tee.  

Both the skirt and overalls were shown last in this post here.

This is me wearing my Karina dress I won in Patti's Visible Monday giveaway.  I wasn't sure if it was going to work for me.  My build has not worked well with wrap dresses in the past, so I was weary.  I picked the Daisy Wrap Black Neutral Floral print  because the dark floral print reminded me of the 80s/90s grunge dresses I used to wear and I felt the shape was a bit sexier.

I love, love, love it!!!!!  Super easy and comfy to wear!  Def going to be a go-to spring/summer/fall dress for me.  I got compliments yo :D
My favorite part is the low cut front and the flutter sleeves.  I am small busted with broad shoulders and often find this shape works well for me.

Wanted to thank both Karina dresses and Patti for the opportunity!!  My only wish would be that they would make an even sexier version!!  Almost veering into 70s wrap disco territory.  I would be v into that for sure.

Love & Light,

DooDoo Brown

Everybody is talking about 70s fashion.  I am happy to see it pop up again, but I do admit there are some funny qualities about it.

Here is me in all my late 60s/early 70s glory.

(Disclaimer: BeautyFace app!!!!)  These poly knit or whatever back zipper shirts have been my jam since high school.  I've always liked them.  This one is the classic DooDoo brown and Pumpkin Orange color scheme that was immensely popular.  

These clogs (or ankle-breakers, as I like to call them) were on mega sale at Sierra Trading Post.  I have a hard time finding size 9 vintage shoes.

Another poly knit shirt on a different day.  This one a lovely maroon and navy blue striped situation.  Also, this big vintage yellow necklace (also shown here with one of my fav shirts).  At one point it was for sale in my booth and really reasonably priced.  I was packing things away to move and tried it on and instantly fell in love.  I'm glad it never sold!  I wear it ALL the time.  Also, my dad's vintage belt.  Annnnd these thrifted flared G@@dwill jeans that are actually new T@rget stock.  They have a deal with each other and now sell their clothes at discounted prices.  They were $10.  More than a used pair, but still super reasonable.  I also like the high waist and flared cut.  I wear them so much!!!!

So Much Good Beer & Food

One of our favorite little brewery/bar to hang is Burial.  It is a small, but awesome little family owned spot.  On Sundays they have delicious food at noon and then live music.

This was the menu today and it was amazing.  They have a little tiny outdoor kitchen set up on the patio where they cook right in front of you.  I should of taken pics of the food, but I didn't, I just ate it.  The red velvet waffles were so yum!  I had the Donut Skillet Stout (my usual) and they actually put a donut hole from Vortex Donuts on a little stick in your beer and it pairs so well.  A portion of the money they make from the Sunday brunches go to a local food charity.  The music was great, as well.

There was a poet:

The music was fantastic!  My friend snapped a shot of our kids while we were hanging outside.  They have a big outdoor area and there are always tons of families and kids.  There is really every age group from 20-70.  Asheville has a super inclusive vibe.

I wore a 60s shirt with a pointed collar and back zipper.  I didn't like the full length pics even though I did really like my outfit.   I wore flared jeans with it.

Pic of the bling!

Repeat Offender

I wore the same dress twice this week.  Once to The Big Crafty on Sunday and then again Thursday night to my husband's office dinner at a Japanese Steakhouse.

Forcing my children to take pictures of me in an effort to get out of the mirror selfie situation.  Needless to say, they weren't that interested in the project.  Ignore Foxy's bed beside.  He likes to rip up stuffed animals in there for fun.  

The dress is one I bought from a fellow vintage dealer that I talked about in an earlier post here.  It is one of my all time favorites <3

Almost all 2nd hand stuff here, except my trusty Ren Faire tote talked about here that was bought from a vendor and two necklace that were gifts.

I'm also trying to stick to the 1 in 1 out rule because otherwise I would just keep EVERYTHING.

I was thisssss close to listing this Catherine Ogust blouse.  Like, literally typing the listing, and then stopped and ran and put it in my closet to keep.  So, I knew I had to pick something to go.

I've come across several Catherine Ogust dresses and have a weird obsession with them, but I'd never seen a shirt.

I love it.  Probably won't wear it until spring, but still keeping.

This is what's going in it's place: 

A vintage polyester button up with leaves and butterfly print.  It's listed here.
I love polyester button ups, but I'm PICKY about prints.  I hate giving up stuff I like!!!!

Hooking up to Patti's Visible Monday and can't wait to see what everyone's been up to and wearing.

Wat up?

Time to post!!!
I'm keeping it more to outfits lately because I was finding it overwhelming trying to talk and blog about all the stuff I do.

Here I am wearing a hand me down turtleneck from my dad's cousin, talked about getting hand me down from her before here, my vintage black leather jacket (has been in quite a few posts!), and a sweet vintage wrap skirt my mom just gave me!!!!!!!  It was a gift from my Grandma (my dad's mom) to her after a trip to Egypt & Israel.  My mom has probably had it almost 30 years.  She doesn't actually keep much, probably only kept it because it was from my Grandma.  I love it :)

Accessories.  And my unmade bed.

We also got to pop out and join some friends that were visiting from Florida.  I have no pictures of it, but it was rather rowdy.   I am wearing some vintage 70s overalls I got from Etsy.  A thrifted modern sweater that is too tight, but works with the overalls, and some thrifted KangaROOS green tennis shoes.   Shoes are lucky scores for me.  I have always had trouble scoring shoes.

Off to check what everyone's been up to!!
Love & Light,

Why u so obsessed wit me?

This is what all my Brit friends must ask!!

Because I really do love England & Wales.

Here is my recently thrifted vintage Kappa Wales jacket.

Used to love Kappa, Adidas, and all those dope soccer styles in the 90s.  One of my best friends, and old roomie, is half British, and he was a soccer player and I used to swipe all his track suits to wear. 
So excited to find this and a keeper for sure. 

And this English soccer tee the same day.  You think they were originally from the same person?

Also, did everyone know about this 'Beauty Face' thing on the Android phone camera???
I am using it here.  Basically, it smoothes out all the blemishes and wrinkles for that Barbie look.  Not gonna lie.  I kind of dig it.  

We went out to this little vintage booth/antique store opening---I cannot remember the name rn.  I met one of the gorgeous vintage dealers (wish I'd snapped her pic!) and she was super sweet.  There were a lot of cute things I really liked, but they were too small for me. 

I wore an old thrifted 90s velvet top and some thrifted trippy palazzos. Oh yeah, and the amazing necklace I picked up in Dahlonega, GA.  I was there for my cousin's wedding and as we were passing through town on the way to the reception we saw a antique store. We popped in, met the most awesome vintage seller/owner, originally from Miami, and shopped the shit out of her store.

I added rings and my new (to me) leopard print jacket shown here.

I also wanted to discuss this thrifted leopard print hat.  I think it's great and it gets cold here and I'm thinking I might actually get to wear it (I've had it stashed for a while).  I'm just wondering how much use I'll get out of it because I will NEVER wear it with my leopard print jacket.  I don't care about everyone else, but I get weird feelings with too much matching print.

This is a dress from Antique Addict. One of my fav vintage stores that I've been frequenting since high school.   The owner Maryce is so nice and was a huge inspo for me.  I did a post with this dress as a brunette in 2012 here.   I loveeeee the color green and I'm always a sucker for a green dress.

So that is a little bit of my current fashion.  My mom popped into town this weekend on her way to/from a wedding in Highland.  So, that was nice!

I'll be checking blogs soon and def hooking up with Patti for Visible Monday.

Love & Light,
