Vince is the MAN!

It is no secret that I am a huuuge fan of Vince Camuto. When it comes to high fashion and affordability he is my go-to for shoes and clothes! (See my other Vince Camuto looks here and here.) Also, I haven’t found a shoe by Mr VC that was uncomfortable!

Transitioning to the other Vince I am wearing in this post…the more sophisticated, staple piece Vince. This Vince (no last name) is a pricier brand that I like to occasionally buy for basic or quality investment pieces.  (Seen here and here) I am such a bargain shopper, but as I get older I see the benefit in saving and investing into classic, versatile pieces that I can wear for years.  I picked up these sandals on sale last month and I have already have been living in them!

Summer Nights

The best part about Phoenix in the summer are the nights after a storm.  The temps usually drop about 10-15 degrees and there’s a new found breeze in the air.  I know everyone else in the world keeps talking about this week being the “end of summer” but that’s not the case for us. Come October and I may start wearing pants…Maybe! I love my brights and prints so I am happy that Summer is sticking around for awhile. :)

Flowers and Puppies

If you want to know the way to a girls heart I will tell you…It’s flowers and puppies and brunch! Hitting up brunch and picking up fresh blooms are a weekly occurrence for this girl.  Dapper Fellow and I love brunch, you know why?? Because ANYTHING goes! You want steak? You got it! You want savory or sweet? You got it! Feeling like a good salad or sammy? You got it! Anything goes with brunch and if you’re like me you want one of everything!!!!

As far as flowers I love them all.  I am typically drawn to exotic blooms or wildflower combos.  I cannot wait until the weather gets better and our farmer’s market’s to open up!

Neon in the City

Nothing like a Neon frock in the summer. I have been wearing so many bright hues lately and I love it.  I took these pics while staying downtown with my girl Whitney from Little Leopard Book.  The views are incredible and Little Italy is known for the best restaurants in town.  I can’t to go back in a few months.

Vintage Chic

If you are following along on my Instagram you may have noticed my recent San Diego wkd getaway.  This Dr Pepper wall has been calling my name for an outfit shoot since I first staying at one of my bestie’s house, Whitney (who also writes the BEST cooking blog, Little Leopard Book).  The building use to be an old bottling plant years ago and screams “Amy’s Vintage Closet” does it not.  I love finding amazing walls and backdrops.

Pops Of Cobalt

Good Afternoon AVC buds.  I hope your week is off to a great start.  I took a little getaway to SD over the weekend and am just now getting back into the swing of things.  It’s amazing how a few days away can help so much. And what Arizonan doesn’t want or need a mini break from the heat!?  I picked up this Eight Sixty dress while shopping in SD. It was love at first sight really.

Mixing Bold Brights

Today I am sharing with you a little shopping secret.  A lot of people ask me where I get things from or where I like to shop and truly the answer is everywhere.  I browse Costco once a week to see if they happened to get in some article of clothing that I would like.  One of my favorite places to find unique and one of a kind pieces of jewelry is World Market.  I discovered this gem while living in downtown San Diego.  There was one across the street from my condo and I found myself wondering in there looking for the obvious, home items.  I had no idea they had a huge accessories area.  They also always have sales.  Trust me on this one, World Market, check it out!

Hey 1997!

No lie, no fibs, these are the exact same mo fo overalls I use to wear when I was in Junior High at Emily Gray! Only thing is that they use to be a longer and super baggy, because it was the late 90′s afterall.  It’s no lie that the Gap Inc and I had an very close relationship while I was in my preteen to college years.  It was my go-to for everything.
In college, all of my marketing projects in were based on the Gap’s financials.  They are a dream when it comes to consistant brand presence, stamina in the marketplace and overall marketing success.  I still am a Gap Inc supporter 100%

Let the project begin:  I cut these beauties into shorts. I had planned to do a whole DIY “How I cut and distressed my long overalls into shorts” but that didn’t happen.  Truth is I eyeballed it and probably cut it uneven, but the outcome was exactly what I had hoped for. :)

Crazy For Citrus

I am totally on board with the Citrus trend happening right now.  I love any funky playful print and new this Loeffler Randall bag was the perfect addition to my bag collection.  I absolutely love Mr Randall’s bags.

This week seems to be moving at a snails pace. I cannot wait to get this weekend started.  Do you guys have anything planned? I cannot wait to get into my pool and not move until Sunday night. :) loeffler randall, loeffler randall handbag, cut off shorts, steve madden orange gladiators, zero uv sunglasses, amy black, amy's vintage closet, white silence and noise blouse, phoenix fashion blogger, phoenix fashion, loeffler randall, loeffler randall handbag, cut off shorts, steve madden orange gladiators, zero uv sunglasses, amy black, amy's vintage closet, white silence and noise blouse, phoenix fashion blogger, phoenix fashion, loeffler randall, loeffler randall handbag, cut off shorts, steve madden orange gladiators, zero uv sunglasses, amy black, amy's vintage closet, white silence and noise blouse, phoenix fashion blogger, phoenix fashion,

THE Black Jumpsuit

I love a good jumpsuit/romper/onesie, whatever you wanna call it.  Normally I am drawn to the short versions, but this black sleek number was screaming my name.  I love the length of this jumpsuit, easily transitional for flats or heels.
