Daisy Does It

On the hanger, this daisy maxi looked frumpy, however I am so excited that after deciding to buy it, it’s such a versatile skirt. The high slits help add some edge to the skirt.  Over the weekend, I scored some amazing deals at the local outlets at Banana Republic, PacSun, and J. Crew. I tried on some things that I normally wouldn’t and was happy with the outcome.

What’s your most recent, out-of-your-comfort-zone purchase?

Vintage Remix

I have always considered myself fashion forward. I can remember when I was in 7th grade, the highlight of my month was getting the Delia’s catalog and choosing the highest platform sneakers I could find. I was always fascinated with my mom’s 70’s pictures with her belly shirts, bell-bottoms and sky-high platforms.

Although some fashion is merely a trend (they may resurface!) such as bell-bottoms, leg-warmers, and leotards; some looks are here to stay. That is why I absolutely love trying new things like fun patterns, crazy head-pieces, and bold glasses. The spontaneity and edginess gives me a thrill. Some pieces and styles will never be out of style. Little Black Dresses. A perfect-fit blazer. Nude pumps. Vintage Chanel. Since my mom has always been very into fashion, she taught me an important lesson- only splurge on classic, never on trends. It’s ok to mix your Christian Louboutins worth more-than-your-laptop-stilettos with your Forever 21 skirt. Remix your look, have fun, and be you.
