Decades of Inspiration





Hello ladies & gentlemen! When I get bored with my closet or feel a lack of inspiration for a new great look.. I always center my spirit and aura around a fabulous vintage piece.  There is so much history and beauty awakened from them!

I was lucky enough to receive this absolutely stunning vintage feather cap from my boyfriend's parents for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. They believe it is from the early 1920's. It is absolutely one of the greatest gifts I have ever received! I decided to pair it with a super fun 90's inspired MinkPink frock and a shawl from F21 that I believe was intended to be worn as lingerie of some sort. However, its super flowy and looks fabulous paired with such a whimsical dress.

I paired it with some usual go-to accessories, long necklace, fringe bag, and some ripped tights and my spike lita's. Overall it is a really interesting look mixed of many generational influences.. which I really adore. Sometimes you just have to be a little courageous and open minded with your wardrobe.. don't stick to one decade.

Dress: MINKPINK (Get it here!)
Shawl: F21
Hat: Vintage
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell
Bag: Target

XOXO

Ps: I get a lot of really sparsely related questions throughout the week (in regards to everything from my haircut to my camera, etc etc...) Would you all be interested in an FAQ post? Let me know ! (:
