newly acquired

A few new frocks hanging on my bedroom door, all vintage except for the polka dot Karen Walker number.

New goodies, including glittery socks from Opening Ceremony, two matching vintage brooches, and an Anthropologie coin purse.

I've been collecting a lot of fake food lately and these glittery grapes are my favorite find so far.

two moments on film

Two forgotten photos shot on 35mm, both from a roll of film that had been sitting around for many months.

orange silk & cotton candy mohair

coat  vintage
blouse  vintage
skirt  vintage
tights  h&m
shoes  vintage

The last time I photographed this cotton candy hued mohair coat was back in 2011, which feels like forever ago. I wore it then with a similarly saccharine 1960's dress covered in giant bows, and in these photos I paired with my favorite brown suede skirt and an orange silk blouse I unearthed from a pile at the Alameda Flea Market. These photos were shot over a month ago (which you probably already noticed if you follow me on Instagram) but I've been a blogging snail lately. Today I'm bundled up in a winter coat, oversized scarf, and hat with ear flaps, dreaming of those recent days when many thick layers were not a requirement!

swap with me

I remember a time when swapping clothes meant digging through piles and piles of rejects on the floors of a friend's bedroom. Luckily technology makes things a bit more pleasing and widespread, and Swapdom is the new king of swapping fun! It's free to join and there are plenty of goodies from gals and guys all over the country. I just joined and made myself a little account here where you can find several vintage pieces from my own closet. Swapdom is relatively new but I have high hopes for how it will reshape the concept of swapping items with fellow fashion lovers. Take a moment to join and share a few pieces from your own wardrobe that need a new home!
