Cute little thrifted jacket w/ new silk boxing shorts

This little 80's jacket my mom picked up at Salvation Army on Tuesday is killer. I'm so into it! Sadly it is not mine for keeps. Expect to see this cutie on the vintage site soon.
I love wearing these little bandage tube tops in the summer-I got mine at Mango last year.

I had fun playing with it though.

These glasses were purchased at Buffalo Exchange in Austin for eight dollars. Kinda goofy but a little bit good too I think. Speaking of goofy, aren't I great at doing my hair? Oh geez...

Givenchy wedges...oops is that a blister I see? Ouch. Whatever.

Whoever gets this jacket is a lucky lady. It'll be up next week I think. I'm not in charge of that stuff so I don't know for sure.

The silk boxing shorts are Dries van Noten-purchased at By George in Austin. I'm in love with them! I'm thinking they will be perfect for Tokyo this summer-they're light and airy and perfect for humid weather.
My mom used to sell to By George back when she had her line. I'm going back to By George soon and can't wait to do a post on their amazing store.

*I realize I am way, way behind on my email-hopefully I'll get back to them soon. Things are so crazy with the school and the blog. Seems like they are constantly at odds. Gotta budget my time carefully. I have so much homework due next week not to mention a scary, scary test. (DP Biology...shudder...anyone who's ever taken a higher level IB Biology course knows what I mean)

By George is one of my favorite Austin haunts. We have a house in Marble Falls...outside of Austin. I bitch and moan until we take our detour so I can see what's new at ByG.

Bandage tube tops- I wore them in the '60s and '70s under my jumpsuits and overalls! They cost $1.00 then! Please visit my blog that I just started. I would appreciate it if you could tell me how do link my daily reads because I want to put you on it (as well as your mom!). Thanks for the inspiration! xo

Silk in Tokyo is bad...think wet and drippy. Wet silk is very obvious. Outfit is adorable though.

You look stupid as fuck.

I really love the flowiness of your shorts, with the sharp edges of your jacket - they go well together

and of course, the Givenchy's are beautiful :)
