Jersey Girl

I have been a sports fan since I was a little girl. Although, God never graced me with an unreal basketball talent, or swift softball moves I have always enjoyed watching, cheering and being at sporting events.  I think of it similar to skiing…If you didn’t grow up doing it you probably aren’t going to take any interest in it later in life.  I got this Topshop jersey t-shirt this summer, but I have been waiting to wear it with leggings. I am typically drawn towards effortlessly put together outfits. A simple shirt paired with sneakers, leggings and a bold statement necklace is the way to go for me in the Fall!! I introduce to you my Jersey girl look…

All Hail to Sir Alexander McQueen

There are few that compare to the genius and creativity of Alexander McQueen. Such a raw talent that left us too soon.  My fascination of this incredible human is shared by my Dapper Fellow. The breathtaking bag that you see in these photos was my Christmas gift from him. I cannot even tell you how perfect this gift is. I found this scarf a few years ago at a Goodwill in San Fran. No joke.  They look so happy together don’t you think? :)alexander mcqueen

Casual Sneakers

Happy New Year!!! I hope everyone had a fabulous and safe evening.  Many of you are off from work today and doing your fair share of vegging out, watching football and sinking into full recovery mode.  I have a perfect casual New Years Day outfit for you…

It is no surprise I am a fan of flanel & plaid.  I love casual button ups paired with boots, but in this case I opted for my new sneaks.  I am surprised that it has taken me this long to get into sneakers. I live with a sneaker head (Dapper Fellow) and I am constantly around his unfathomable amount of sneaks.  I got these beige Steve Madden wedges sneakers for Christmas and they’re so comfortable. Perfect if you’re out and about or if you just want to relax at home. vintage flannel

Layered Snake Print

Happy Cyber Monday bz’s! Hopefully you all are getting your shop on for the both of us! Today’s outfit is what I wore for Thanksgiving. It was so nice outside in AZ that I had to shed the outer later minutes after these pictures were snapped! I think it is obvious if you know me or visit my blog that I have a huge obsession with leopard print everything, but I have a secret…I think that snakeskin has weaseled it’s way into my heart as of late. I picked up this snakeskin pullover piece years ago and forgot that I got rid of it  gave it to my mom until I was over there.  I love the colors and I feel that it screams fall! vintage snake skin blouse, nordstrom stripped shirt, forever 21 sunglasses, jolt jeans, tory burch flats, matt & nat bag, mixed prints,fashion, amy black, amy's vintage closet

A Little Leather Love

Well hello there Monday! I am happy to see you! Dapper Fellow and I had a very mellow weekend and it was fabulous. I feel refreshed and ready to take on the week! Today’s look is from my Saturday morning date with my BF Krystal.  We went to brunch, walked around and I helped her find a dress for an upcoming wedding.  I love wearing shorts year round for daytime activities.  Even when it gets a little chilly I just add tights underneath.  What I like about both of these pieces is that they can be fancied up or dressed down like I am wearing here.  Perfect weekend attire.

School Girl Attire

Last Friday I introduced you to my friend Rebecca Turley from Nostalgic Boutique.   (See my last look wearing the “Brooke” dress here.) When I met with Rebecca all the pieces I picked out from her collections were so different from one another.  She has such a wide range for a Contemporary line.  Today I am wearing the Morgan Skirt.  This particular style of skirt is one of Rebecca’s best sellers and I can see why.  I instantly fell in love with the material, pockets and length. I am not a big short skirt fan so that is important to me and I don’t have much of a defined waist so it is necessary that a waist definition exists.  The material is thicker than cotton with a linen/tweed strength to it.  I instantly pictured this skirt with tights and this hat.  Completing my 60’s school girl inspired look.

Purple for Ronan

When I met my Dapper Fellow last year he was always wearing this purple bracelet that said Rockstar Ronan FU** You Cancer.  After a few days knowing him I asked him what it was for and he told me Rockstar Ronan’s story.  A young child diagnosed with Neuroblastoma cancer who fought hard for his beautiful life that was ended too short.  Ronan’s mom Maya created a blog to document and create a long living legacy for Ronan.  Through Maya’s blog formed a foundation  that is growing worldwide.  My boyfriend’s mom gave him the bracelets. She has been following Maya’s blog from the beginning and is an avid supporter of the organization.  She is the one who told us the most recent news about another HUGE step for the Rockstar Ronan foundation.  Maya received a phone call from Taylor Swift that she was interested in collaborating a song for Ronan to sing at the SU2C event which was held last Friday.  The song is remarkable and so touching.  Taylor in true Taylor fashion is giving all procedes of the song to Cancer foundations.  Ronan was #1 all weekend and is currently #2 on itunes. Help support Ronan and let’s get that song back up to #1!!!

Adore It? Afford It!-Hippie Gypsy

Don’t you love when you stumble upon a sale that you weren’t expecting? I was shopping for my mom last week and found these darling black wedges from Target that were on clearance for $9! Sheesh. I didn’t even try them on. They were coming home with me.  :)  I paired them with this dress and top that I pretty much lived in this past weekend.

Casual Friday

TGIF Lovelies! Today’s outfit is something you can typically find me in during the weekend.  I am easily drawn to stripes.  These jeans I cut and made into shorts.  Is it me or are shorts getting shorter and shorter each summer? I didn’t buy any this year and stuck to taking scissors to my old jeans.  I like being able to control the length and have a few that are frayed and a few that are hemmed.  This is one of the reasons why I feel that it’s important to have a good tailor.

Vintage Neon Pink

Poppin Pink is my Dapper Fellow’s beverage of choice. That is the phrase that I think about when I look at this dress.  Perfect breezy attire for this HOT HOT heat that we have in AZ.  Dresses are an easy item to wear when you’re unsure of what to wear or how the dress code will be at any given event/occasion.  It is definitely my go-to item because it carries little fuss in styling. You can wear a dress by itself or add a belt, necklace, hat to create additional looks.  I  went to meet my mother for some QT and threw this one on with my oh so comfy cobalt blue sandals for a casual daytime look.  If I was to transform this for PM wear I would loose the belt, add a black wedge or heel, pull my hair back in a messy pony tail, add a bold necklace and a clutch and be out the door.  As I get older I find myself only purchasing things that I see longevity in, not just a one and done type of garment.

While I am on the Bfrend topic have you guys heard of my friend Monika’s Bfrend Collection? Aren’t they such darling, affordable, girly bracelets. Monika of The Doctor’s Closet is a Vancouver native and we met while I was going to college in the Vancouver area.  She is adorable at everything fashionable, sparkly, and PINK! I know you will love her talent as much as I do. :)
