I bought this blue floral dress at Good Will for about $7. The top is a recent purchase from Macy’s. Spring is close so that means my closet is filling up with pastels. I really love how these two pieces look layered together! Don’t be fooled by these pictures. It’s still freezing here but I felt the need to photograph this outfit outside. Looks like we should be getting some 50 degree weather in the forecast after some snow tomorrow. Fingers crossed it keeps getting warmer from here on out.

This weeks Thrifty Thursday features this floral romper that I found at Good Will for $8. It was a perfect fit and definitely has a 90′s vibe. I love it. I can’t wait for warmer days so I can wear it bare legged with a denim jacket. I think I’ve given up on outfit photos outside until we have spring weather so these bedroom photos will have to do. Side note: I am obsessed with Summer Sweetheart lipgloss from the Mac Archies Collection. It’s a lovely peachy pink and the packaging is perfect. I could kick myself for not picking up an extra one. Seems it’s sold out online and the stores I’ve checked.

Hello! Here’s a little Valentine’s Day themed Thrifty Thursday. I picked up this vintage 60′s dress for only $20 (you may remember it from a few weeks back) and thought it would be really cute for today with some red tights and a red hair bow. Notice something different? I finally got new glasses! I ordered these from Warby Parker and could’t be more pleased. As someone who usually wears my contacts everyday, it’s been nice to make the switch to these a few days a week.
I need to get to packing. I’m heading off for the weekend with some friends and I’m very excited! A much needed break. Have a lovely day and weekend!

I’ve had this chambray jumper for a while now but never wore it. Every time I put it on with something, it didn’t feel right. I don’t know why I didn’t try pairing it with this bow blouse before. Added a pop of color with these burnt orange tights and layered on my trusty tan cardigan.

I’ve been really into this color palette recently: shades of blue, cream and brown. I wore this to go to the movies and dinner. I hope everyone had a good weekend!
Ahoy! I love this sweater. I picked it up off the sale rack from Forever 21. I love the nautical feel and the little sailor collar on the back. And it’s really comfy! Took these pictures by the lake and dreaming of the ocean. Is anyone else missing summer?
I never got a chance to do a recap post of 2012. I’m definitely hoping to make 2013 a better year for the blog though. I have a tripod now so outfit posts can be better and more frequent. I also have a bunch of DIYs I plan on posting. I definitely want to push myself to learn and try new things when it comes to my crafting. Also, Thrifty Thursday will be returning… kind of got set aside these past few weeks or so.
Well, I hope everyone is having a nice weekend. I’m working on organizing all of my craft and sewing supplies. I’ll be posting the results when I’m done!

I just wanted to pop in and share my new favorite dress! I had it on my wish list, and noticed that after Christmas it was 50% off. I couldn’t resist. I actually wore it twice this weekend (shh!).
I realized that I’ve been dressing like a school girl recently… lots of knee highs, plaid and button downs. I’m just going to go with it haha. Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and is ready for New Years!

I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday! Sorry for the blogging break. I’ve been super busy lately! I’m hoping to be able to post regularly again soon. I received a tripod today and had some fun trying it out.

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect long sleeve dress with a collar and cuffs for years now. They were always too expensive or didn’t fit right. Seeing Moonrise Kingdom and Suzy Bishop’s perfect dress made me want one even more. A few weeks ago I decided to start my search again and found this beauty on Modcloth. I decided to treat myself and am so happy I did. This is how I wore it to the craft fair. I can’t wait to style it up differently. I wouldn’t mind having Suzy’s dress too though…

I bought this corduroy jumper for $10 at No Relation Vintage in the East Village in New York. I highly recommend checking it out! It was really inexpensive and there were some great pieces. I only checked out the first floor but there’s a basement too which I plan on exploring one day. I also found a really adorable baby blue dress with a white peter pan collar and buttons, but it had a few too many stains for me to take it home.
I mentioned on Tuesday that I had some exciting news. Well… I’m going to have some items in the Vagabondia Vintage Pop Up shop! It’s located at 1028 Washington Street in Hoboken, NJ (across from Maxwell’s). It officially opens tomorrow and will be there for the rest of the month. If you’re in the area, be sure to check it out for some great vintage and handmade gifts!
