Thrift shop finds 5/18/2013

I love pink!  Do you know that?   So much!  I'm essentially Elle woods in the right mood :3  And I nearly squealed when I found this gorgeous princess bustier at Plato's Closet!  Doesn't it look wonderful with my hot pink pencil skirt?  Answer:  Yes!  Yes, it does.

This next outfit is so chic but also sooo 60's/70's hippy.  And sexy!  Incredibly sexy!  I finally found the perfecttt high-waisted booty shorts.

And finally, this awesomeness where I look like a little rebel tomboy circa 1903...  Isn't it precious!?  100% thrifted and 100% OOAK style!

Gypsy Punk Summer Restyle

So today has been super productive and fulfilling in sort of an existential way, and I'm feeling really content about things.   I just scheduled classes for my first semester for my sophomore year, lots of philosophy.   So much brain candy!  Anddd I finally made some stuff happen when I was being really crafty and inventive.  Really excited.


Head scarves were my favorite, absolute favorite trend last year, but I've always had SUCH a hard time trying to pull it off.  I have a tiny head and absolutely the only things I could use were bandanas and this one childish tie dye scarf (Ala Limited Too) lying around my room from ten million years ago.   I didn't want to look like I was a 10-year old playing hippy for dress up, nor was I super into just rocking a boring old bandana.  I mean, honestly, there are just so many things I want to avoid while rocking the headscarf.  I don't want it to look like a headband or a hijab or a cowgirl bandana....  It's just not my personal preference...  But today!   I perfected it!   I had an old half of a cut-up Old Navy graphic tee-shirt lying around and I thought, hey, there's hardly any fabric here, maybe I should try to squeeze it around my little head.  And it worked!  This look is absolutely everything I could ask for: edgy yet feminine, artistic, bohemian, and not too pin-up-girl.  I don't really see the appeal of them pin-up look 100%.  It's nice but not my favorite type of retro get-up.


My favorite quirky little make-up trend EVER is the dots under the eyes!  Somehow both sophisticated and fun... and friendly.  It would work for any style and still be cute as hell.  Or hellish.  It would compliment a very punky very well.  Where did it even come from?   It seems very burlesque.  -Or victorian?  Don't mimes wear those?  Except they wear triangles?  Either way, it only increases my admiration for this little artistic touch to eye-makeup.  So simple yet so dramatic!!! *swoons*

I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before, but I'm quite a nail stylist.  I'm thinking about starting my own manicurist business sometime soon just so I can make some money and do what a love, 'cause this is my art.

& Today I decided to do something even more arty (kinda dada inspired)

The colors in this pic really don't do justice to how cool they look in real life...   Very sparkly and eccentric, kooky and a lil bit glam.  I lovvvee them :)  They say "&3}"  and "awe".  I meant it as in "shock and awe", not as in "awe, that's too bad", justifiably.

Purple Pants

I finally decided to utilize my button/pin collection for one of the first times this year, and I haven't been so confident with an outfit I put together in a few!

What's awesome about this outfit, is that aside from the little accessories it's hella simple- I don't really have the most simple style because I like to express myself, or rather, over-express myself.  But I think in this particular case I could be myself without over-stating it.

I think in this modern culture people put a lot of emphasis on expressing their interests, and I don't think it's all that bad.  Pins are a kind of way to do that.  Here's to my supa kawaii panda & pony pins and my Ramones pins <3 

^^My phone camera's pretty cool.  Isn't this really good detail on my purple shorts?  I bought them at Madewell this past winter, I think.  They're real quality.

Shiny Clothes & Pretty Weather & Unicorns & Rainbow & Happy

So, it is absolutely positively GORGEOUS outside, it's in the motherloving 70's today<333  And I'm finally wearing my favorite sexy thrifted shirt with my absolute PRIZE of a dress that I've been dying to wear for ages

The story behind this dress is not much of a story, just that I win at being thrify and I win at life.  There was an after-christmas sale, and Then on top of that I had just taken back a $30 hat, so the dress was majorly marked down twice from about $200, THEN on top of that it was half-price.  I ended up snatching it for under twenty bucks :) along with some uncomfortable designer socks (They were sheer, I thought they would be really epiccc but they weren't so much).  I have never been so happy with a purchase in my life.

The tee was 5 dollars at Platos Closet.  It has seductive looking lips and a really low vneck cut.  It's SOOOO hot.  I'm obsessed.

Safety Pin Necklace & Apologies

Hey, sorry for not being on in a while.  I've been going through a lot of crazy shit and I've been busy as hell :/  But!  I did just make this really cool avant-garde looking necklace...  And I wanted to share it with all of you!  I'm majorly inspired right now and hopefully I'll be posting a few outfits this week going with the sort of hippy-punk theme that I'm feeling pretty majorly b/c of this thrown together crafty-as-shizz necklace.

Sorry my complexion is looking particularly pubescent today (I'm 19, god damnit!)

Is anyone else feeling some steampunk potential here or am I completely wrong?
