my make-believe shopping trip

since shopping isn’t in the budget right now i figured i would join in the craziness that is polyvore. why not, right? i’m really a comfy cozy kinda chick when it comes to my style of dress. i don’t like things that are too stuffy and though i can be, i’m not very overly ultra-girlie.

since my days over the past several years have been pretty chill for the most part, my little casual polyvore sets reflect what i’d throw together in my day-to-day goings ons. for starters, i live, live, live in my jeans!!! and denim jackets are an essential in my closet. i like clothes that are well made and that will last, and i’m not extreme in my trendiness. i don’t buy brands just because it’s the new thing poppin’ either. i buy what i like and what fits my budget. shooooot, and since i’ve been so inspired by mrs. mimi goodwin of late, i should actually use my fashion design degree and jump back on my sewing machine!

i just do me when it comes to clothes and isn’t that what style is all about?

thinkin’ spring & head scarves

whenever my hair starts driving me a little nuts or i want a different look i wrap the madness up in a head scarf or bandana. years ago i wore a lot of head wraps, but these days it’s more of just the usual wrap it around the front, tie it in the back variety. but this spring my plan is to buy some beautifully colored scarves and try different wrapping techniques. here a few of my fave styles.

laser cut goodness by moonc

it’s everywhere! laser cut jewelry has been very popular over the past few years and it comes in a variety of materials: acrylic, wood, felt, leather… last year i featured rachel stewart‘s laser cut jewelry that included afro picks and cassette tapes and since then i’ve come across so many other designers with beautiful and unique pieces. moonc is my most recent find. these lithuanian designers create jewelry inspired by nature, history and architecture.
