OUTFIT// HIGH IMPACT FLEA MARKET FINDS

What can I say? It's all about the jacket. Good basics + high style jacket = easy dressing, no? 

What you see here is ye ol' Iro holey linen tee worn with One Teaspoon Frayed shorts. Truly, nothing to write home about. 

But then... THE JACKET!

SHOP BLACK DENIM FRAYED SHORTS

SHOP LINEN & HOLEY TEES

This is a vintage Afghani embroidered jacket, purchased from the Rose Bowl flea market. Check the shape on this puppy. 

Check the details - poms, tassels, lining... 

This is A LOT of jacket! It's long, it's fabric-y (technical term of course) and it's visually busy. It's definitely not for those who want to shy away! It's a one-stop shop to add IMPACT to a look with very little effort. 

I mean look at this THING. 

SHOP THE JACKETS

Picking up the red accents on the jacket and went with the red crossover sandal... duh!

Well, as these things go - once I find something I like, I run it into the ground. Is anyone else like this? It's a quasi-addictive personality thing for sure. In this case, I'm running these One Teaspoon shorts and Gucci crossover heels into the ground like roots.

SHOP THE SHORTS

Same shorts, same channel. This time worn with a men's (DUH) APC sweatshirt from many seasons ago. Yes it's LA, we can wear sweatshirts with short-shorts and SOMEHOW this makes sense.

SHOP SPORTY SWEATSHIRTS!

A jacket, not for "styling purposes, but for those very real moments of walking into a building that is CRANKING the ac. 

SHOP KIMONO STYLE JACKETS! 

Knotted in the back - is the built in belt.

HOW MUCH FUN ARE YOU HAVING WITH YOUR CLOTHES?

I've heard women from all walks of life tell me how uninspired they are with their wardrobes. That's no good and should be remedied, stat.

But digging deeper, there's another layer- which is literally having fun with clothing because what you're wearing has a story, makes you laugh, is ironic... you see where I'm going right?

It's important to have a little fun with your wardrobe. Enter this 1980's bootleg Gucci sweatshirt!

This sweatshirt is hilarious because Gucci didn't make this. It was a bootleg made in the 80's, which was found on Ebay, made it's way into my closet and then onto my body. It's vintage kinda' and confusing for sure. Anywhere I wear it, it either starts a conversation, furrows brows of people trying to figure out if it's "real" or side eye from people who think I'm really wearing a Gucci sweatshirt. Jokes on you suckas... or me... whatever.

Check out the baggy 80's fit! YES! Paired with baggy RTA jeans to balance proportions and make the "slouchy" thing, a THING.

Pulling from the color/theme in the sweatshirt - my jeans and my kicks are faded black as well. Nike SBs picking up the yellow and red. Also, notice the gold lace accessories? Again, bringing old things back for fun!

Speaking of old things as the theme. Remember the first generation IPOD? OHHH! You don't? Sigh.

Finally topping off the look with a fun camo jacket in the same color family, but refining the look some. Leather sleeves and great construction add some luxe to my look.

Thatsaboutit!
