A Good Button Up

I do love a good 70s button up!!!  But, it has to be just right or it looks awful on me.  Because of my build I prefer my lovely polyester button ups to be really thin and worn in
material.  I also like to wear them unbuttoned lowwwww, like how I imagine Italian men did in the 70s.  Or still do.  What do I know since I've never been to Italy??

Wearing my mom's school ring she gave me and my dad's watch along with a vintage pinky ring and a big fat costume jewelry ring:

Also, two vintage rings and a homemade crystal ring, along with my dad's vintage gold-tone bracelet:

Kind of a terrible pic!!! But, oh well :( 
Also wearing my dad's belt from the 70s!!  He had the best belts.  I swear, I just can't find comparable modern ones. 

 The amazing print that includes a brown-tone rainbow and lounging nude lady amongst assorted flowers and birds and such:

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.

Love & Light,

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,
