Sometimes a simple sweater will just not do, sometimes a sweater that speaks is a conversation worth having; especially when sequins are involved. I am instinctively drawn to anything that sparkles and I so love this contrast of comfy versus eye candy. She’s a versatile little lady too, perfectly happy at home with the flat boot of the season [totally in love with my leopards] but would also be a perfect partner for a slick heel and high drama statement jacket…and if you don’t have the cash for the amazing Ashish then scour your local…

Introductions can be tricky. Akward small talk, the anticipation of ‘will we get along’ and wondering where it could all lead. Luckily some chance meetings flow effortlessly, even perceived differences ain’t no thing. Two kids from opposing sides of town, when summer met winter it just worked. With yours truly playing cupid, I pulled back my bow and put this vintage dress on the path of my thrifted black Levis and Leather jacket. I adore finding new fashion beauty in the old, beaten up and discarded. I love the print of this ‘Grandma Frock’ but…

Layers and Light

November 21st, 2014

Lazy days call for comfy draping and layers that dance with the dappled afternoon light. I found this gold flecked Ralph Lauren lovely at The Salvation Army for $10! Super oversized and loaded with character, I just love how it falls every which way it wants.

These are the kind of pieces that we always come back to because they just feel so fabulous and free. Scour your local thrift…

Wild curls and a wicked mind, this woman knows how to work it. Roxanne is my friend, a fabulous artist and a fellow Fashion Hound – Lady loves to thrift and man does she make it look cool. She came shopping with me at The Salvation Army and we decided to find something to showcase those dangerous curves. We went for latte and caramel tones to honor her gorgeous skin and hair, something lady like, cinched in subtle sexy but oh so striking. These are classic pieces that look fabulous as a team but could…

Mille Feuille

November 17th, 2014

Mille Feuille – a thousand layers my lovelies. For me it’s the fashion equivalent of the most luscious of cakes. Some might think its a trifle over done but I say t’is the season to pile it on thick with tasty texture and tone. For this sweet treat I chose caramel, cafe au lait and charcoal tones then whisked in contrasting black and flecks of gold. I sourced the bulk of the ingredients at The Salvation Army and the faux fur vest is from my favorite vintage store on W14th St Rags-A-Gogo. Start with an eye…
