Bohemian Spring

Unlike the beautiful weather that was listed in my last post, this week has been full of cold rainy weather..bah humbug :(  However, that does not stop me from daydreaming about the upcoming Spring weather and all of the comfortable, cute clothes that are in store for Spring.  I love the Boho style because it's so simplistic, yet chic. Here are a few looks for Spring that have caught my eye.  Oldies but goodies...they will never go out of style. (You know you have add a fabulous pair of wooden heeled platforms and a few pair of bell bottom jeans:)

I'm off to LA this weekend and I hope to do a ton of Vintage shopping.  I'll post what I come up with when I return.  Until then XXXOOO!

Game Day

In case you are wondering about the title, I wore this outfit out with one of my girlfriends to watch the Superbowl on Sunday.  I'm JUST now (obviously) getting around to posting it.  So, I'm a few days late..but nonetheless,  I promised to do a post with the Jessica Simpson ridng boot..well, I don't know if it's really a riding boot it sure looks like one to me.  I love this top!  It has an sorta 80's feel to it and it's kinda long so I tie it up on the side to really give it that flash dance kinda feel to it..the pretty colored sequins is what attracted me to this top, they kinda remind me of peacock feathers.

Necklace-Charlotte Russe ?
Boots-Jessica Simpson, by way of Nordstroms Rack

Thank you Jessica!

No excuses, I suck!  Well, I finally snagged one of my sons to take a few pictures of me, so please pardon the quality.  These Jessica Simpson shoes arrived in the mail last week and I fell even more in love with them, so much that I ordered the tan pair.  (ssshhhh!) Can't let my alter ego know about this.  She has been trying to be more um, "fiscally" responsible.  I'm trying to get on board with that idea, but you know if you find something you like, you just HAVE to get them in every color.  Right?  OK, ok. I must say that I'm actally a fan of Jessica's shoe/boot line.  I came across a pair of really cute pair of JS riding boots a couple of weeks ago at Nordstorm Rack for a ridiculously low price..I will eventually do an outfit post with them.

The dress I'm wearing is one that I absolutely love!  It's sheer, as you can see and I'm a fass (as my mother used to say) mama, so if it's sheer, I'm all over it!  LOL!

Leather Jacket-Vintage-Thrift
Camera Necklace- Lulu's
Jeans-Charlotte Russe
Stockings-Banana Republic
Shoes-Jessica Simpson
(oh and braids courtesey of the lovely Ms. Esha:)

Shoes, shoes and more shoes!

Hello fabulous folks!  I've slacked off on updating my blog as often as I use to, but hey life happens so what can I do?  Ok, I've been searching around for some cute shoes to buy.  I'm really looking for sale prices but of course the shoes I want are never on sale.  I did make a purchase that I'm excited about, they weren't on sale but they are so cute I just had to buy them right now.  These Jessica Simpson shoes made me lose my breath when I saw them.  You know I love the wooden heel, it's a nod to my favorite era the 70's:)  I'm waiting with bells or should I say bell bottoms on until they arrive.  I promise to do an outfit post when I get them!

Now these shoes from TopShop I want badly but I really want them to go on sale.  I keep going back and looking at them.  I know me and I know if they don't go on sale fairly soon I'm going to just get them.  I'm a little hesitant because they ship from the UK and I'm not sure how much of  hassle it's going to be to return them if they don't fit properly.  I love the stitching on the top of the shoe and the overall retro feel.
The following shoes are ones that I just think are cute. I'm not realllly thinking about purchasing them just yet.  Although I do need a haute red shoe!

Thoughtful Co-Worker

I know, I know, I couldn't come up with a catchy, creative title so it is exactly what it is.  Anywho, I was meandering around my room trying to straighten it up and put things in there place!  *sigh* because I have a small room and it just seems like it get's out of control so quick!  As I was  looking around, my eyes landed on a box that contains a cute, cute pair of shoes that my coworker gave me.  Shout out to Socorro!  She asked me one day what size shoe do I wear, I told her and next thing I knew she brought these shoes in!  They are vintage Caressa's and are in the original box..Socorro and I both have a love for vintage clothing and  can sit and talk for long periods of time about our thrifting adventures and what we found.  I have yet to wear them but I do reallly, really love them!  Look, aren't they cute?! Oh, by the way these weren't vintage when she purchased them..she bought them new and held on to them all this time!  (waiting for me to come in to her life:0) Hehehe...

70's Child

I know I've mentioned before that I am a self proclaimed 70's child.  I seriously love just about everything from the 70's, the music, the clothing and I have a huge collection of those "blaxploitation" movies.  I just love it! I'm always on the lookout for items from this era when I'm out thrifting. I've even thought about growing an afro, but that might be taking a little bit to far..hmm?  I found these items while surfing tonight..

Found on Polyvore

Halston -found on

Halston Jumper (sorry, don't remember the site)

Chiffon top and bottoms

I found these Ulf Andersson pants on a recent thrifting jaunt.  They are super cute but super long on me.  I'm only 5"2, so I'll have to have them altered.  Can't wait to wear them this spring!  Do you identify with a certrain era when it comes to your style of dress?  If so, which?
