NEW POST: Winter’s Back (Just Kidding!)
So, I’ve been slacking lately, I know…. Unfortunately there’s been some family medical issues, hence the lack of posts. But now I’m back again, and with me I brought winter!
While no, I’m not ushering in any snow (although today was horrifically rainy here in NJ), I am going through my photos that I never had the opportunity to previously post. So, while I might not be in tuned with the seasons… who cares?
I fell in like with this blanket sweater from Old Navy when I first saw it, and then in love once it was super marked down. It’s over-sized, and can easily add bulk to an already bulked up frame, so I cinched it with a colorful woven belt to help bring in my waist.
When worn over a tan turtleneck, it gave me such a 70s, “Love Story" kind of feel (editor’s note: but what do I know, I was born in the 80s), that I just had to pair it with a floppy, wide-brim hat, chunky heeled snakeskin/tan booties, and suede clutch from the 70s, and bell-bottom jeans.

Get Grungy.

Being that I grew up in the 90s (I was an 80s baby), I got a full dose of 90s style right in my formative years. I’m talking burgundy corduroy overalls, fuzzy wizard-sleeve bell-neck sweaters (I had it in 2 colors!), holographic-ish daisy print baby tees (bought at Contempo Casuals, of course), platform flip-flops, JNCO jeans… the works!

But the one thing I never really wore was plaid. Oh, I imagine some might have snuck in there (I use to be a Curler- the sport- and plaid runs rampant in Curling clubs) but I certainly wasn’t “grunge” by any means.

So, am I making up for lost time now? Perhaps… I find myself drawn to plaid tops and a hell of a lot of black clothes lately, but I’m not about to jump in my Delorean and head back 20 years (omg, the 90s were TWENTY (plus or minus) YEARS AGO!?) to douse myself in H2T 90s nostalgia.

So, while I might be slipping a little grunge into my style now and then, don’t expect me to go full 90s. Never go full 90s.

I’ve Got Mono Fever… Monochromatic, that is.

Monochromatic looks aren’t new; fashionistas are used to dressing H2T (Head-to-Toe) in a monochromatic color- black.

Instead of breaking up the boldness of your red pants with a black top, swap out the black for yet another swath of red. Make yourself into a human cherry.

Or in my case, a blueberry. 

This post may have been written under the influence of too much caffeine or not enough.

I’ve had these blue suede shoes for a while now, and their electric color is always eye-catching. I typically pair them with a black dress during a job interview- I find having a pop of color on my feet helps me stick in the interviewer’s mind. 

But imagine my excitement when I found pants that matches their pigmentation perfectly! And then a shirt that is their color twin (or triplet). And while the blazer doesn’t match in perfect hue, I think that since the other three items of my outfit are an exact shade match, the colors all complement each other enough.

I just can’t Stop Staring (And admit it, neither can you…)

Whenever I think of retro style done right, I think of Jasmin from Vintage Vandalizm (seriously, if you don’t know her blog, you’ve got to check her out!) I love her sense of style, how on point she always is, and how she is able to weave tiny modern-day touches into the occasional outfit.

So, when I received this flawless Stop Staring dress, I started pouring over my accessories to gather the most vintage-ish items I own to incorporate into my outfit. (Spoiler alert, I apparently own a lot less vintage than I thought.) So, I put my own twist on things, with my modern-day accoutrements, and hoped for the best.

Therefor, I bring you my best “Black Widow, did-she-or-did-she-not-kill-him, I-can’t-believe-she-wore-that-to-his-funeral” look. I hope to always look this inappropriate at the funerals of all my future husbands.

I love theme parties. Any excuse to dress up in an unusual way from my normal style is always a good time (for me at least). From pimps & hos parties in college (where I was a pimp, naturally) to our uber-successful “stereotype” party (where I was a stereotypical Rock of Love contestant- anyone remember that show?), I seriously get into dressing up and taking on the role of whomever I’m suppose to be.

So when my best friend invited me to The Legwarmers concert at the Trocadero in Philly, I obviously was chomping at the bit to get all 80s-afied! With my big hair, bold brows and love of everything patterned and bright, I know I was meant to be this age in the 80s.

Unfortunately, due to a knee injury, I knew I was going to have to forgo heels, and therefor my original hair band groupie getup. With my acid wash jeans out of the picture, I decided the comfort would need to be key for a long night of dancing. So I literally built my outfit from the ground, up.

Starting with my super comfy tennis sneakers, I topped them off with my crazy leopard-floral leggings (never did I think I’d get TWO wearings out of these bad boys), purple legwarmers, an ASOS lace back bodysuit and a vintage metal belt. My polka dot heart-shaped Betsey Johnson chain strap purse just seemed like a natural choice and was a huge hit at the venue.

The Legwarmers were righteous and the entire night was like, totally tubular! If they’re ever in your town, make sure your gear is totally fresh and you will most definitely have a rad time! (Is that enough 80s slang for you?)
