70′s Spring Love

This outfit reminds me of the 70′s.  One of my favorite things about thrifting is imagining the person or people who have worn an item before it got to me.  I am actually mesmerized by it.  I come up with all kinds of scenarios in my head about who “she” was and what “she” was like.  I think this girl was a 70′s flower child and I love it  :)

Vintage Blue Frock

I love nothing more than finding a true one of a kind thrifted dress or item that just fits like a glove. I found this dress last month when I was shopping for options for Lucky Fabb.  Although I didn’t end up bringing it with me to LA I felt that it was the perfect weekend dress for my shoot with Maria on Saturday.  I always like adding a modern touch to a vintage look and these Just Fab heels were the perfect addition.  This belt actually goes to an old H&M dress that I got in college and I really like the contrast of blues and prints.

Lucky Fabb Day 2

Today is the look I put together for day 2 at Lucky Fabb.  When dressing for events like this I am always trying to best represent AVC and what better way to do that than with a vintage leopard skirt? I mean, really? This little number was too perfect.  The blog conference was held at the beautiful SLS in Beverly Hills. It is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever been to.

Lucky Fabb-Day 1

When packing for fashion related trips I always try and spend some good brainstorming time before hand so I am not a complete stress case.  I picked up this gorgeous vintage frock a couple months ago at Goodwill and knew it would be the perfect getup for day one at Lucky Fabb.  As always I was aiming to combine a few vintage pieces with a few of my newer go-to pieces.  Dapper Fellow got me these gorgeous Vince Camuto heels for Christmas and they’re seriously the most comfortable heels I own.  Sidenote-Vince Camuto be killin it lately!

Spring Leopard

Hey guys! Happy Tuesday.  I am still trying to catch up on my super fun filled weekend in LA for Lucky Fabb.  I attended Lucky’s blogger conference last year and almost forgot how much energy and sleep it takes out of you.  It was all totes worth it.  Like most people I am use to a solid routine back home and rushing from one social event to the next was a fun change of pace, but dang am I glad to be home in my pj’s in bed.  :) If you’re a fashion blogger and haven’t been to the Lucky Fabb blogging conference I highly recommend it.  You will make lifelong friendships and gain valuable information to your blog.  Stay tuned later this week to see what I wore to the conference.

I met up with Stesha the day before we ventured to LA and snapped these pics.

Coachella Inspiration-Volume 2

Hey guys! Happy Tuesday! Time for my 2nd Coachella outfit inspiration post in my Coachella Inspiration series.

Today’s look is something I know all of you can easily duplicate.  Starting with a printed tank, add some cut offs, ankle booties, fun sunnies and voila…an effortless Coachella outfit!   I added the Shawl Dawl (last seen here). If you have any sort of similar shawl or kimono this would work as well, or simply leave it out.

Coachella Inspiration: Volume 1

So it’s time for some Coachella inspiration. I have been lucky enough to attend Coachella 3 times in my life.  For those of you reading who have never had the chance to attend it truly is a bucket list event you need in on. :) You can check out my last trip here.  It’s no secret that music festivals have become quite the fashion scene.  I thought it would be fun to do a mini series once a week leading up to Coachella with some outfit inspo for you.

I wanted to start with my absolute fav Coachella combo: a comfortable light weight dress w/sneakers and a cross body bag! I picked up this thrifted floral dress at my local Goodwill and by the looks at most of them I bop into you can definitely find one too! Coachella is ALWAYS hot.

Pops of Pink

Truth be told I am not a Pink fan. I realized this when was looking in my closet for something pink to wear for Valentine’s Day and literally came up empty.  I really only wear Pink if it’s in a pattern or with another shade that works for me.  But, lately I have been gravitating towards it and it’s the strangest thing.  I went to BR this weekend because I got an email they were having a humungo sale and damn, they weren’t kiddin.  I picked up this blouse that I am wearing today and one more that I wore over the weekend.

Snakeskin & Denim

Double Denim has definitely evolved from the Canadian Tuxedo…While attending college in British Columbia I saw my fair share of bad double denim combos.  At the time I was not interested in attempting this look, but since have experimented with several different combos  (see my past DD looks here and here)

Peter Pilotto for Target

I am always a sucker for the Target style collabs.  (See some of my favs here here and here).  The most recent Peter Pilotto collection did NOT disappointed!!  I fell in LOVE with the mixed print designs.  This blouse is one of two that I purchased from the collection.
