These are the moodboards I made for my first jewelry collection with Roman Luxe. The entire collection was inspired by vintage jewelry I've collected over the years and certain images that have been burned in my brain.

Took these vintage Larry Vrba earrings out for a spin the other day. I love the crystal pavé hearts and chunky pearls... so 80s in the best way possible. I can't wait to wear these in the summer time with creamy silk dresses and cat eye sunglasses! Also trying out some Estee Lauder lipstick in Red Velvet.
A random photo of my jewelry stash. I've started storing my jewelry in crystal dishes so I can see everything much better...
Hope everyone is having a lovely Tuesday morning- I just started a juice cleanse and so far it's not too bad!

As you probably know from reading my blog, a lot of my vintage finds come from Shareen Vintage. The place is a giant warehouse filled with beautiful clothes, and although the selection is huge, everything is well-edited. There is something for everyone- from 90s grunge florals to a 50s swing skirt. Since it's one of my favorite places to shop (and play dress up), I figured it was only right for me to share a few photos with you...
A stunning 50s prom dress in the perfect shade of pink.
Wearing a dress by Shareen the Line.
An elegant 30s silk floor-sweeping dress that I'm dying to own.
A Shareen rework- she takes vintage fabrics to create her own designs. Love this little two-piece skirt set.
If you're ever in LA, make sure to stop by! This place is heaven on earth.

The morning started out gloomy so I figured it was the perfect day to take my vintage Casi brocade jacket for a spin. I am so in love with the exaggrated peplum and puff shoulder sleeves! It reminds me of a Marc Jacobs jacket I once wore for a Who What Wear photoshoot. Here are some more photos...
Also wearing black jeans by Levis, Miu Miu boots, Ray-ban sunglasses, and vintage sterling silver rings.

I've had my short hair for almost three years now and I'm finally allowing it to grow past my ears (although I am desperately yearning for a haircut right about now). I can't wait for it to be a little bit longer so I can play around with it! Here are some short hair inspiration photos I've found over the last few months...
Messy unkempt hair.
Anja Rubik's short hair. I took this photo to my hairdresser for my previous haircut a few years ago.
Dianna Lunt shot by Citizen Couture.
Natalia Vodianova's pretty curled hair.
Everyone loves Arizona Muse's hair! I love how super textured and disheveled it is in this photo. Here's a different photo of Arizona's shorter haircut...
Swept back picture-perfect hair.
I love Britt Maren's hair!
More messy hair.
This is the photo made me want to grow my hair out.
Hope you enjoyed the post! x

It was love at first sight when I first laid my eyes on these Prada crystal embellished sandals. I waited and waited to order them online, but in fear that they might sell out I got them a couple weeks ago. They remind me of that rock candy I used to eat when I was a kid. I am picturing them with a vintage 50s sweater and tattered denim. Such a pretty shoe... I am head over heels for them!

Yesterday felt like summer so I wore a vintage minidress that reminds me of an ice skater's costume. I love it so much, especially the embellishment on the waist and open back...
Worn with Louboutin pigalle pumps, rhinestone anklet, and Essie Mucho Dinero nail polish.
I found this rhinestone bracelet at an antique mart and customized it to create an anklet!

Starting the month with a mood board that has all of the things I'm currently loving- anything sparkly, my dream Audemars Piguet watch, a crystal leotard, red cap toe shoes by Prada and Fendi, and the feminine fifties silhouette.
Also, I'll be adding new items to the shop later on today so check it out!
