Sunday School: Conversely

Sunday School: Conversely

  Sun•day school noun  a congregation of snapshots to enlighten you in the doctrine of fashion; held on a weekly basis.   This week: Chuck it.   Life is better in Chucks, you can’t deny it.  Walk, dance, chew gum, you can do it all in these babies.  Pair them with a fancy-schmancy dress or a threadbare tee, they look equally as nice no matter which way you go.  Swing in high tops or swing it low, any color will do just fine.  Beat ’em up, wear them through, love your feet like Chucks love you.  Need some inspo?  Rounded up below are a bunch’a babes, doing down and dirty Converse.  Go ahead, take a look:   Images Via: Fashables, Style Du Monde, Phoenix Magazine, We Heart It, Glamour, StyleCaster, Mr. Newton,...
Jumpsuit + Angles

Jumpsuit + Angles

In a pretty silly and bright mood today, even though we are almost as far from Friday as we can be… Who can complain in an outfit like this and a background like that?  Not I!  Vintage army green jumpsuit and white converse paired with the perfect statement accessory, a necklace that Bound sent over! Handmade in Los Angeles, and perfectly angular, it’s a line I can definitely get behind.  They also have killer rings and earrings, check them out!  I’m in love, that’s for sure, so don’t be surprised when more pieces pop up over here.   Jumpsuit: Vintage // Necklace: Bound // Shoes: Converse // Sunglasses: Random shop by the beach Photography by  Sumanta...
Get ’em out!  The shoulder pads I mean.

Get ’em out! The shoulder pads I mean.

I have to say, nothing makes me happier than finding a vintage piece with massive shoulder pads, falling in love with it’s fit, color, or buttons, and then ripping those massive shoulder pads right out!  Really though, pulling the shoulder pads out of a really killer vintage dress instantly brings it in to the now.  That doesn’t mean every time I see shoulder pads that I rip them out!  There are definitely some pieces, either because the shoulder pads are so subtle, or because the piece is made by the statement shoulders, where the shoulder pads are best left right where they are. This dress fits in the “GET EM OUT!” category, so out they came and on to my bod went this killer red dress.  The checkered detailing around the collar and arm hems, plus the double breasted buttons, had me sold even before I had tried it on.  That is the beauty of shopping for vintage!  Sometimes you just find a piece that you love everything about, whether it is the buttons, the fabric, the shape, or anything else, and you know you have to at least try it on!  Sometime it will work, and sometimes it won’t.  Or, like in this situation, you may need to do slight alterations.  Another super easy way to bring a vintage piece into the now is to tack on some ribbons to the back sides so that you can tie a cute little bow to cinch in the waist to make it more fitting to your body.  I have used this method many times!  Try it out!  Find a piece...
Pink Pleats

Pink Pleats

Pretty pink pleats!  I love vintage skirts!  Well, I love vintage shirts, pants, shoes, AND skirts.  It’s the best when you can weave vintage into your wardrobe to get a completely different look.  It’s fun finding things that are still on trend, whether it’s through the color, the shape, or the fit, but it isn’t exactly the same outfit someone else is wearing.  Case in point, this pleated vintage skirt with a Zara top and pink Converse.  I bet no one else will be wearing this skirt as I go throughout my day, and that is a good day if you ask me! Also, I cut my bangs!  What do you think? Top: Zara (I have like three of these in different colors, they are the perfect basic!)  // Skirt: Vintage // Shoes: Converse // Bandolier: California Surplus...
