Nineties I hated you, now I love you kind of.

I'm kind of excited to share my first outfit post with you! 
Truthfully, I don't know how often this is going to happen, 
but I'm hoping at least once a week.
I forget which days I wore each of these things. 
It was such an insaaanely crazy week.
Later on this week I'll share some photos. 

Jacket: F21
Sweater: Old Navy outlet
Hoodie: Express, thrifted
Jeans: Charlotte Russe
Boots: Old Navy, swapped
Necklace: my mother's

I desperately need a new pair of jeans.. Why are jeans so hard to shop for??? 
That tribal printed hoodie was a sweet find from Salvation Army. My friend makes fun of it, but ya know? I hated the 90s trend at first. Hated it. Something about it has really caught on, I must say. And I wish I had gotten a better shot of both the necklace and the boots. I get so many compliments on the necklace and I wish I could say where my mom got it but I just don't know, and she doesn't remember. The boots were one of the best swap finds ever. Sadly after wearing them to work pretty much every day, I think they're pretty spent.  

(How could I not post this one with my bird on my head? It's his favorite perch. 
And no I have never gotten pooped on while he's been up there! :) )

Sweater: Gap, thrifted
V neck: F21
Belt: Old Navy outlet
Skirt: Lord & Taylor via Alexis Grace Consignement
Flats: Old Navy
(Bird: Muchachon, cockatiel)..hehe

I can't tell how I like the red shoes, but in general I think sandals would work best with this skirt. Such an amazing find at Alexis Grace. I just love it. It's a little big for me, but I like how the length turns out as a result. I love the gray on gray on gray. I know for sure that I was inspired by an image on The Sartorialist but I can't really remember which one, other than that it was in the autumn. I chose no jewelry on purpose, which some may say is crazy given my collection (which is way overboard!). I just think it didn't need any. It was just right as it was, and any jewelry at all would have made it too busy. 

What do you think?

I also need to add that I'm not a total hippie even though I have a large tapestry hanging on the living room wall. I just love India and happen to have dreads, okaaaay?
(I just had to say that because I'm so often stereotyped.)

Do you have any characteristics that make you the victim of stereotyping as well? 
How does it make you feel? How do you respond to it?
I'd love to know!


  1. in my id picture for work, I'm wearing a fedora and huge grin... I also have a white peace sign tattooed on my hand- SO, everyday when I go to work with my little 4th and 5th grade munchkins (they are real, life size people, not from the land of oz), they always say I'm a hippie, then they proceed to dance like love children. Considering this, I decided to teach them all yoga, just for the heck of it... hehe and I love you didn't wear jewelry with that skirt outfit- sometimes, I think jewelry can be overrated with certain, stylish looks :)

  2. I love this skirt and the red shoes! And the bird! You did a great job... keep em coming!


  3. Cute outfits! The photo with your bird is so sweet!
    The Japanese artist was called Yoh Nagao, you can check out his website here:

  4. Love both outfits! The boots and the sweater in the first one are really gorgeous. Haven't fallen a victim of a certain stereotype (yet!) x

  5. Love that your bird decided to be a model too! Lovin those boots

  6. I just found your blog today, I love it!

    come and visit me at

  7. I love your dreads- and I don't automatically think hippie when I see them on you :) Cute birdie too- does Roo try to eat her (him)?

  8. Love love your killer dreds! Rock em, girl.
    Also, the hippie comment made me laugh. I thought: "tapestries: not just for hippies anymore."
    :) loves.
