All necklaces worn are vintage, and all are very recent acquisitions. Expect to see some on the vintage site soon...definitely not going to part with that cross though! What a piece.

Worn with Martin Margiela biege sandal-boots, BCBG skirt, and Ann Sofie Back sweater.

I've been wearing this outfit a lot lately. 
I've been loving this skirt since Michelle at Quail sent it to me, along with some other beautiful things that have yet to make it to the blog!

Thank you so so much to the amazing people who contribute to the Vintage Magazine scans forum at the Fashion Spot.
Magazines today pale in comparison to how they used to be...models too. Something about these images is so powerful and assertive. You rarely ever see this kind of energy in spreads now.
I much prefer the glamorous and femenine models of then to today's 16 year old rail thin models who cringe in front of the camera, staring ahead blankly and bow-legged. Not all models or shots are like this, of course...definitely not! But it's certainly an image that's present in magazines today. The images presented here are much more empowering, and interesting!

Oh, and this post wouldn't be complete without some cheesy Italo disco and pop.

Okay, time warp over!

The weather has been so depressing lately, I don't think the sun has come out in two weeks. And our house is flooding because of all the rain. Awful!
But this gloomy weather gave me the perfect oppurtunity to don this vintage plaid cape I've been wanting to wear.

Worn with Levi's jeans, J. Crew pleated bib shirt, and Prada spring 2006 booties.

While walking around that little swamp to take these pictures, my Pradas were invaded by a swarm of ants. Ouch. 

These shoes are the best though, I swear. I wish I had them in 100 colors. LOL. No, really...I do.

These shoes are treacherous as hell to walk in...do not attempt to walk in wet grass in these!

Today I wore my silver Antonio Palladino octopus ring!
Worn with Kimchi Blue Ruffle Bandeau top, a random grey thingy I go in Tokyo years ago, and some random dropcrotch sweatpants I picked up at a vintage store in Austin

Sorry if I haven't been updating as frequently lately or if I'm behind on correspondance-things are so crazy with school ending and finals coming up. I never anticipated how much upkeep having a blog involved-it's been overwhelming these past few weeks. It's hard to keep my priorities straight right now with the blog and school!

Must dash-gotta go to a film club meeting...
