Vintage Levis

Happy Friday!!
Every girl needs a good pair of cut off shorts. No matter what the age or body type shorts are a must in the summer.  It seems that every year the shorts keep getting shorter and shorter in the stores and a few years back I decided I would steer clear of them and cut old jeans to make and style my own. (I have done this to more than half of the shorts I own) Even if DIY’s aren’t your thing this is the easiest thing for anyone to do. It becomes really fun when you cut, fray and style a pair of old jeans from a thrift store because there is little to no investment, these were $7!!!!!

Levi’s are hard to find so I felt like I scored with this pair from Savers.  I simply cut them and allowed them to fray naturally.  I would wear them, then wash them, wear them, and wash them, even when they didn’t need to be washed I washed them because that’s what gets them frayed the fastest.

Spring Fashion w/Savers

Oh hello there! Remember me? It’s been awhile friends and I am so glad to be back in the blogosphere.  Just in time for Spring fashion trends with Savers.  This week I will be styling several looks with different pieces I purchased from my local Savers. Savers has always been a favorite thrift store of mine. My love for thrifting began shopping at Savers in high school and continued to Vancouver when I went to college and then shopped at Value Village, their Canadian store!

Let’s talk Culottes!  No, you’re not having flashbacks of your 3rd grade teacher.  Culottes are back yo, or at least I like wearing them.  Not something for everyone I realize, but the key thing I found when styling them is to pair them with a heel to elongate your legs.  The pants speak for themselves so the rest of the outfit is simple with classic touches.  My favorite piece of this look is the VINTAGE FERRAGAMO purse!!!! It was love at first sight.  :)

Black, White & Leopard

Here’s the funny thing about these leopard sneakers.  I am a little bit stalkerish to Nordstrom’s website.  The minute I saw them I knew I had to have them.  I am always on my feet and sneakers have become a staple for me.  Plus they’re leopard. RU KIDDING ME!!!???? I neeed them.  Every morning after answering emails I would look at them again and debate if I was going to take the plunge.

 Then the shoe angels threw a pair at me while shopping at my favorite Nordstrom returns store, Last Chance.  Victory was mine, I nearly shed a tear I was so excited they found themselves in my arms. Now the true test, will they fit…they are a size 10 and I am normally a 8.5/9.  I couldn’t believe it, but they fit.  I read the reviews and it’s true, they run small. Thank the shoe angels because mama found her glass slippers.  :)

Salvation Mountain

I read about  Salvation Mountain for months before finally venturing on my own excursion.  Correction, I dragged Stesha with me.  It ended up being a few hour detour in our trip, but her and I both agreed was well worth it. It is located in the middle of the California desert and it’s fascinating how one man built this unique piece of art.

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  :)
