Looking at Life Through Sunglasses

I colored my hair this past weekend! Originally I wanted to dye it strawberry/honey blonde, but the hairdresser decided to do his own thing and dyed it this striking orange-ish blonde color... I love it! The other night I lined my eyes with liquid liner and packed on the mascara and I kind of looked like an alien, it was amazing. It's incredible what a change in hair color does to your personality!
 
Wearing an incredible square dancing skirt from the 60s that I hemmed and made shorter (there was so much more fabric before) with an American Apparel sash, vintage earrings, Super shades, and Alaia pumps.
Been listening to Kanye's "Power" remix this whole weekend thanks to my boyfriend... What's on repeat on your iPod?

A Tropical Melody

There are a few things I love about clothes- textures, colors, and patterns. Lately I've found myself loving really bright, fun prints. This shirt is vintage (of course), and it's actually kind of an ugly/tacky print, but I think that is why I find it so great!
Worn with Topshop premium silk trousers, Coach nude clutch, and Nina Ricci dark brown python pumps.

Drip Drip Drop

I was organizing my closet this morning when I noticed how many polka dot printed things I own...They seriously take up a good portion of my wardrobe!

Anyway, I decided to wear one of my vintage mini dresses today and it sorted of reminded me of Marc Jacobs' most recent resort collection. Usually I'm not a fan, but I loved this look...
...And here's my polka dot dress....
Worn with custom-fit Levi jacket, Ann Demeulemeester lace-up shoes, Jil Sander mirrored shades, and vintage crystal bracelet. 
Happy Saturday!

Carpet Skirt & Linen Shirt

Yesterday I wore one of my favorite skirts (I say everything in my closet is my fave, but it really is) that I altered a little by hiking up the hemline. That's the great thing about shopping for vintage- it doesn't matter if it's not your size or fits you a little odd, you can always get it tailored to fit you properly! 
Worn with a men's linen shirt, vintage pins, earrings, and bag, Yves Saint Laurent pumps, and Karen Walker sunglasses.
Have a lot to do today, better get started. Happy Monday!

Levi's & Mood boards

Snapped a few photos of what I was wearing the other day. There is nothing like a good pair of worn-in Levi's... I just want to get rid of all my other skinny jeans and wear Levi's for the rest of my life.
Headscarves are also really great for those days when your hair isn't cooperating! Oh and I have a little thing for hoop earrings too... all sizes, all shapes.
Wearing Levi's from American Rag, Gap tank, vintage silk headscarf, and Prada platforms.
There are times when I am completely uninspired by everything. Most of the time when I browse blogs, it's not necessarily what they're wearing that inspires me, it's the composition of colors, textures, prints, etc...That's what really gets me! So anyway, I was getting really bored of the internet until I found a site by mistake called Art Tattler. I swear you guys, it is the best site ever! I was up all night making huge mood boards for some of my upcoming projects and for my room... Here are a couple quick clippings of what they have on their site...
I also discovered an artist named Lil Picard, she's incredible... I love her work! I've gotten really into painting after taking a few classes and so when I'm at home sometimes I paint with gloves (so I don't mess up my manicure, hehe) and I took a photo of them, thought they looked really cool...
