The blues

10/8/12







thrifted denim jacket, Romwe vest, Forever 21 top, Madewell belt, Forever 21 skirt, Zara sandals, Coach mini duffle

Something about crisper weather makes me want to get back into the groove of thrifting. I found this denim jacket a while back and loved it for its boxy shape and awesome zippers (a nice change to a denim jacket's typical button hardware). The fit is rather masculine, which persuaded me to balance the sex of the outfit out by wearing a skirt and heels. Ha. Rolled-up sleeves, a layered sleeveless vest, and a slouchy knit top with a whole lot of texture added to the mix and there ya have it, my reliable layered get-up for the onset of fall here in LA (which, in most other places, doesn't really count as fall). It gets quasi-chilly here and then it disappears and comes back, and so forth. So this works.

I understand what you mean when you say fall brings out the thrifter in you. I'm not sure what it is about this time of the year, but it makes me nostalgic of seasons past, too.

I am sorry but everything about this blog reminds me too much of Fashiontoast! Your style is great but the format of this blog is highly unoriginal: from the photography to the writing, I feel I've already seen this before a few years ago. Of course, it doesn't help that you and Rumi are practically twins. It just looks like a copy+paste
I think you have amazing style though, more wearable than Rumi but you need to mix your blog up a little!

I love how you're able to make denim look dressy and polished...not an easy feat! :)

Her style is good and she is pretty, yes that is true and we don't contest that. The point here is her writing and photography. Too much akin (there, because you all like to use highfaluting words) to Rumi. And this is not because I'm a Rumi fantard or something. This is because I know this blog can do better.

Love the shades! and the denim jacket is perfect - in that vintage, worn in way.

I love the way that in most of your outfits, you have a belt nonchalantly around your hips.

Stumbled upon this post through the NuffnangX app on my phone!

I would have never thought to put a blazer with a demin jacket! Might have to steal this style! :)
