It's a real mix of secondhand and vintage


This dress is a contemporary secondhand Modcloth Emily and fin dress.  It's 100% cotton & viscose.  Full cut bodice with a fit and flare style, very full skirt with pockets.


Vintage locket and handmade choker.


Vintage brown leather boots I got from Etsy several years ago and had the soles redone last year. Otk velvet leopard print socks.


It's a navy blue dress with a poppy floral print.  


I added a vintage metallic bronze lurex jacket when I ran out for sleeves--- slight hint of chill. 


Blogging totally from my phone rn. My new (to me) laptop is buggin' a bit. So, just over here shopping secondhand, small biz, vintage, & mostly my closet lol

Love & Light,

The Sexiest French Fashion is The Yellow Vest and World Poetry Day, Nopales Tacos, and vintage 70s halter dresses ok ok ok

I'm actually (obviously lol) just in a stupid t-shirt, but I want to give a shout out to the French for protesting and taking it to the streets.  People act like marching and protesting isn't worth it or doesn't work, but apathy is really the only thing holding the people down now in the modern world.  We do have the power to organize for a better world. 


Kind of an awful pic, but I wanted to show some solidarity from the US!  So I drew on my vest real quick.  I'm not a very skilled artist, but thankfully I can just tell you what I was attempting. 
I may draw some more clothes on myself though---kinda fun idea.

We just had World Poetry Day!!!
I LOVE this Frost poem.


I love that this was the poem in S.E. Hinton's book The Outsiders.
"Stay gold, Ponyboy.  Stay gold."


This vintage 80s gold mini dress might be staying with me for sure!  This was a quick pic for fun.  It's so tight and short I will probably have to wear it with leggings---but, that's fine!

KUKNAT 
Coconut Rum from Belize
THE BEST I'VE EVER HAD!!!!



My bff Sam brought this up for me as a gift for my 43rd birthday.  Her mother brought it with them on their last trip from Belize to the states.  We just finished drinking it this week together in honor of Sam's 46th birthday!!!!  It is the most delicious coconut rum I've ever tasted.  It's ridiculous how delicious it is...

We had a quick low-key hang-out for Sam's birthday visit with several friends.  I don't have a picture of all of us UNFORTUNATELY, but I will take the opportunity to talk about one spot we got to hit up called Zia's in West Asheville.  I'm not even a vegetarian, but their Nopales (fried cactus) taco is famously delish!!!!


This picture is from another night I was there, but I ordered the same thing with the ladies!  For $9 you can have a taco, house margarita, and chips and salsa----super yummy!  (That is the Nopales taco tho.  So yum!)

Pssssst! For the xs vintage sundress lovers. BIN for $28 plus ship.


Spring is coming :)

Wearing my dress backwards and I Found Another Work Onsie!! A Green One! And United Colors of Benetton and Stop Staring!

Found a green work onsie, similar to my navy blue one here and I love it.  They are super comfortable.  I feel like I honestly can get more crap done faster because I do not even think about messing up my clothes.  I mean, they're great for work lol go figure.


I thrifted this altar'd state crop top and I just love it.


Wearing with some high waisted linen pants that were hand me downs from my cousin Fran.


I went to dinner with two friends (wish I had pics because my friends dress so amazing, but I get distracted!) --- and then to hear my friend Krista spin at the 27 Club in Asheville.

I actually took a couple of amazing pics!


I loved the set-up and the lasers and smoke machine!


That's her digging thru her crates because she spins all vinyl. 



This picture of my dog Foxy Baby joining me for a Sunday beer b4 meeting friends.  I was so so happy to be in the sun.  I'm wearing a thrifted dress backwards with a pin because I like the look better.


If you know me, you'd guess I was drinking a stout---and be correct!
Beer, secondhand vintage sunnies, secondhand dress, adorable dog---accessory level 10,000!! lol
He is such a handsome sweetie and so good!


I actually got this 90s United Colors of Benetton dress thinking to wear it backwards as well, but it's too small  



Another item I love are the 90s does 40s/50s retro style repros! Vintage on vintage! This one is a Stop Staring! number listed here.  I'm a large and I think this one was a medium...  Bit too small, but I often find these very flattering.


I'll be checking out all your bloggy-styles again---can't wait!

I'm Jumping Back In Like Nothing Happened! And two 90s HOT KISS jackets!

So frustrating!  My computer died and I had to have my brother send me an old laptop---thank goodness!  I don't know if I can catch up on all the blogs, so instead of being overwhelmed I'm just going to just jump right in again and not worry about 'catching-up'.


90s revamped (ripped up) dress with secondhand dark floral print HOT KISS jacket.
The Hot Kiss (at least the jackets) are rather sturdy and well made for being 90s stuff.  Some things were already starting to get made rather poorly by then---but these babies hold up.




Chambray Hot Kiss jacket over a tank top with some men's vintage jeans and jewelry.




B4 I added all the jewelry and jacket---green dress for St. Patrick's Day!


So, I did run around with friends this St. Patty's Day, AND ran into some friends by chance, and was having such a delightful time that I HAVE NO PICS,  Jeez.

HOT KISS jacket first shown back in 2012---shopping my closet!


Same dress with sweater & hat again!!
Vintage Scorpio charm necklace.




Anyways---these are all revamped and reworked and remixed looks with nearly all secondhand items, many that I've owned for years.  It took me some time to find the right combos and styling for some of these outfits, so don't get discouraged!  Sometimes it takes a bit to get it right!

Trying My Hand at Growing Mint

Spring is coming and I've decided to try and grow mint.  I made mojitos recently and instead of buying a bag of mint, I bought the plant. I've never been good at growing or caring for plants, but I'm in a mood to do it.  It's only been a week or two and it's still alive!  Doesn't seem like much, but I discussed last spring here and would like to reference Vix's post in regards to The Wasteland as sort of an emotional counterpoint to all the new life we look forward to every year after winter...  And I'm ready to get into spring again and I'm literally trying to grow something --- feels good. 



I did my mojitos with homemade simple syrup, fresh muddled lime, & fresh mint---and rum & tonic water obvi.
Then a friend and I did a variation of this by adding fresh blackberries to the muddle mix!!  Amazing!!!  This is a great idea for a sort of party batch drink.  Make it all the night b4 and let it soak and then just add the tonic water last the next day b4 serving---highly recommend!

Sorry for the weird eyes in the pic below, but my lavender eyeshadow looked so pretty I was trying to show it, but honestly could not capture the true color of it.  It's from an Urban Decay palette Sam gave me when she was over it.  I've been loving it!  Eyeliner is NYX Matte.  I highlighted the top with silver Urban Decay shadow from the same palette.





Thrifted ruffle tank top and mostly my mom's jewelry (that are mine now), besides the big silver Rebecca locket, which was mine from childhood.  


Wearing an old sort semi-ruined (but very wearable!!!) vintage petticoat as skirt that I got for practically nothing at a fun vintage pop-up talked about here last year.  I love wearing vintage slips and petticoats as skirts and dresses in spring and summer.





My sweet oldest daughter made dippy eggs for everyone in the morning this weekend.



She's amazing.


We went to Asheville Brewing Company after this Sunday's Mardi Gras tribute parade in downtown Asheville.   It was kinda cold and raining and we still had an absolute blast.  A perk of living in a smaller town is running into FRIENDS <3

 London, Winter, Kiki, Ciella, Stella---made it 10x more random fun!


I wish I'd taken a dang picture of us ladies because we were having a blast, but I didn't!!!  I got to get back on my pic game.  Idk what's going on...  Speaking of which, the rain meant a low turnout for the parade, but it was still just ridiculously fun.

A few of the only horrid pics I got because I was mostly screaming, dancing, and cheering on all the people and bands and performers so---



Sorry that's it----it was awesome tho.


In the name of fashion and spring cleaning I'm going thru my closet.
I've decided to sell my leather jacket.
I've always absolutely adored a leather jacket with a skirt or dress.


Oh yeah, and flowers the girls picked for all us ladies.  I put mine in my parents' old Georgia cup from when they met at UGA in college.


Wearing a vintage Moroccan shirt (one of my fav shirts of ALL time) & necklace both from around 2013 with vintage jeans (unseen).


I'll never stop saying how any type of connection to the people we care about is vital, but face to face is just dreamy.  So happy to see all these peeps this weekend!

Off to hear/read your stories bloggy friends :)

Fancy Friday Fun with Wigs and DIY Chokers

All my old friends in Florida are losing their political minds rn and I needed a distraction so I don't go nuts.  Seems like the perfect time to put a wig (from Halloween) on lol!!!  I had a handmade sparkly choker I made with sparkly fabric and velcro and just a cute tank top.  





I felt better after I got dressed up.
Now, this lewk may not be your style, but I sure felt cute with these little things---all of which I had at home already. 

TGIF!!!!!
