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).  (Shirt now for sale here!!)  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!!!!

Hooking up with Patti's Visible Monday!
