Houndstooth

Hi bb’s. So happy to report that Arizona finally got the memo that it is November and we officially don’t have 90 degree days anymore!!! I love Black & White for Fall. I swopped up this Houndstooth blouse on super sale last week and I couldn’t wait to layer it.

The Short Suit

Good Morning Blogging Beauties!

Today’s look is a repeat offender. I wore this short suit for the Phoenix Style Collective Blogging Conference in April.  It was LOVE at first sight for this suit and I. I also totally think that it’s the new dress for women! 181483_10151598285369630_1822565705_n

I wore the same shoes, (my fav swag from Lucky Fabb c/o JustFabb), but I wanted to add some color so I chose this bright coral vintage blouse.  I try and dress up any chance I get, considering most of my workwear is very casual.  And I paired this look with my fav new Stella & Dot necklace! This piece was by far my favorite piece from their collection!

Vacation Holiday

As of today I am officially on vacation. Dapper Fellow and I are heading up to northern Arizona for my family reunion then we are off to Newport Beach.  I am so excited to relax and kick back with the ones I love the most.  Almost all of my family lives in the midwest and I rarely get to see them so it really makes me treasure the time I am able to spend with them!

I picked up this vintage blouse when I bought this gorg dress from Goodwill last week! I have a weakness for printed blouses similar to this and this one did not disappoint! You may not be able to tell, but I covered the top, center button with a gold vintage lion pin. I am in the process of trying to transform it into a necklace.  Anyone have any ideas?? Let me know!!!

Pretty Bird

Somewhere along the line I became obsessed with animal printed blouses. No not leopard, snakeskin, or python, I am talking little mini animals all over a solid colored blouse. This parrot blouse has been on constant rotation since I last wore it here! I think I have worn something from Old Navy every single day this week. Oooopsies.

Bauble Love

Earrings have never been my cup of tea. I love them on other people, but am NOT a fan of my hair being up so I see no point.  This all changed when I was at Old Navy last month and cleaned house in the accessories department. These baubles were too good to be true!  They’re lightweight and I was able to wear them all day! Perfect for a day of sightseeing in Denver.

Hippie Gypsy

Yesterday I introduced you to the darling Ashley from The Pink Ruffle.  Her leopard knotted headband is so easy to style.  I have been wearing it non stop with EVERYTHING!!  Headbands, wraps, scarves, and turbans are perfect for Summer because they transfer from day to night so easily.

Do you remember when I first fell in love with Shawl Dawls? Shawl Dawl’s designed pieces similar to the cream one I am wearing below.  The shawl is one piece and it can be converted 13 ways!!! This one in particular is perfect as a pool cover up!shawl dawl, forever 21 cut offs, amy black, amy's vintage closetIMG_4646shawl dawl, forever 21 cut offs, amy black, amy's vintage closetshawl dawl, forever 21 cut offs, amy black, amy's vintage closet Tank-BP Nordstrom, Shoes-MIA, Shorts-Forever 21, Bag-Halogen, similar, Shawl-Shawl Dawl, Headband-Pink Ruffle, Sunnies-Kate Spade

Girls In Sneakers

The secret is out, sneakers aren’t just for men anymore. I have always been drawn towards any sort of masculine trend for women. Sneakers are very familiar to me, as I am dating a “sneaker head”, other wise known as DF.  Dapper Fellow loves sneakers like we love ALL shoes. He has a large influence on my day to day fashion even though he probably doesn’t think so. IMG_4311 IMG_4330 IMG_4332 IMG_4321

Red Suede Shoes

One of the main reasons I started this blog was to give myself an outlet where I could be creative…Putting together all of these outfits takes time yes, but I love it. I would do it all day if I could.  My love for styling isn’t limited to just my own.  I love when a friend calls or texts me questions & advice on what to wear to things.  I love dressing people up, letting them borrow items for a night and seeing them smile because it’s another way to feel beautiful.

The idea behind “Amy’s Vintage Closet” began sometime in my 20’s when I realized that even though I owned pieces similar to other people, I did not dress like most of them.  My style is a mix of thrifted/vintage items mixed with Forever 21, Nordstrom, TJ Maxx and Ebay.  In my opinion there is nothing more original than mixing of an item designed decades ago with something you recently purchased.

There are two things that I do splurge on…Can you guess which two they are??? DING DING DING…Shoes and Handbags.  :) Guilty as charged! But those two items will inevitably outlive me so they may as well be something that is extra gorgeous! May I introduce you to these red beauties designed by the ever so talented Brian Atwood!brian atwood figara brian atwood figara red bootie pump vintage elephant belt kate spade sunglasses, vintage scarf

My Mexican Getaway

Sorry for the late post, but today has been busy busy busy. I left town Friday with some girlfriends and we went to Puerto Penasco, Mexico! One of the best things about living in Arizona is how close we are to great getaway spots, Mexico being one of them. When packing for Mexico I always go light. (You may remember my trip to Cabo last summer here.) Do you need anything else besides a swim suit, sunnies, and a pair of sandals? Not really. The weather was perfect…80-85 degrees the entire weekend. I bought this flowered head band from Asos last year around this time in preparation for Coachellaflower head bandcoachella headbandIMG_4062flower headband

1 Vintage Fur & 1 New Leather Hat

Happy Friday loves!

Living in Arizona really limits my ability to take full advantage of my fur collection.  This particular fur I purchased in San Fran while I was in college.  It is my favorite of them all and with the chilly weather that we’ve been having I jumped to the chance to wear it. I just bought these pants and if you follow me via Instagram you will know that they’re the 1st pair of pants I have paid full price for in over 10 years!!!!  They’re from Gap and called Deconstructive Always Skinny jean, but I got a size up and feel like they’re the perfect boyfriend jean.  I absolutely love this new leather hat. It goes with EVERYTHING. I originally saw it on Asos, but later purchased it for half the price through Amazon.com.

*I ALWAYS do this when shopping online. 90% of the time I find something I want and end up purchasing the exact same item on Ebay or Amazon!*
