World’s Best Superpower.

World’s Best Superpower.

While this vintage jumpsuit might not look like much, it’s one of the fundamental pieces in my wardrobe.  Mostly because it’s the easiest thing to throw on, but also because it actually says something.  What does it say?  Well, it kind of just says that I am lazy, but also that I found something unique and I’m not afraid to wear it! To be honest (or TBH, is that what the kids are saying these days?), one of these jumpsuits isn’t that hard to find, you could probably find one today if you looked around a bit.  I even linked to ones that are new that are quite a lot like this one, in case you aren’t into the vintage hunt kind of thing.  As for the hat?  This hat!  I can’t express to you in words how very awesome this hat via Millimétré is.  The most magical blue felted wool and perfect shape… I’m kinda making it sound like you will have super powers when you wear it, and it’s pretty much not far from that.  I mean, the ability to cover up a bad hair day at any given moment is quite the super power, no?  And now we are to the shoes (also via Millimétré) and Valas Los Angeles bag!  Shiny shoes?  No brainer.  White bag that’s so fresh and oh-so-clean? Done!  Wearing three statement pieces like the hat, bag, and shoes all in one outfit can be hard sometimes.  This is where the jumpsuit comes into play.  If you have a larger canvas of clothing to play with, say something like this green jumpsuit or...
LA Ninja Warrior Ep. 1

LA Ninja Warrior Ep. 1

Just kidding, this isn’t LA Ninja Warrior episode 1.  It’s episode 2! (For the first installment, see this post.)  Really though, I was so pumped, and I mean P-U-M-P-E-D, when I found this matching set.  It was just sitting there at a thrift store in Salt Lake over the 4th of July, minding it’s own business, when I came along!  It is pretty happy to be with me too, I’m pretty sure… I would really like to meet the person who first purchased this set because they are obviously awesome.  Well, maybe they aren’t that awesome because they did end up donating it to a thrift store.  I like to think that they just grew out of it though, maybe too wide or too thin for it?  Let’s go with that as to not ruin this person that I have put on a pedestal for buying a dragon ninja outfit.   Anyway, finds like this are why I love to shop for vintage in Utah.  I feel like it’s hard to find such awesomeness in Los Angeles, either because it’s gone already or because it costs $5,000.  This little set cost me a grand total of $6.  Seriously.  So, if you ever find yourself in Utah make some time to go to Deseret Industries (the resident and all reigning thrift store chain in Utah), and dig up some gems.  I promise you won’t be sorry.   Until I go back though, I at least have this guy to keep my heart warm at night.   Matching Set: Vintage // Sneakers: Galibier // Bag: Hare + Hart Photography by Eli...
When it’s an accessory.

When it’s an accessory.

Is that when you know you have a problem? When coffee has become a permanent fixture in your hand and it shows up in your outfit photos?  Just kidding.  I don’t actually drink that much coffee.  I’m a Red Bull girl, but you never really see that because a can just isn’t as cute as a coffee cup!   Now, down to business! What’s the business you ask? Diaper butt jumpsuits.  I love them, which actually should be of no surprise to you if you have read my blog for any longer than a week.  They show up all the time!  Well, okay maybe not diaper butt (or also so lovingly named “poopy butt”) jumpsuits, but the one piece clothing article rears it’s awesome little head quite often (see here, here, and here).  Did you think I was joking?  I LOVE them.  In full disclosure, I have been wearing this jumpsuit for three days and am actually wearing it right now as I write about how lovely this purple patterned number is!  Sometimes it feels good to not think in the morning and just put something awesome on.  The one and done kinda day.  If only this could be the case every day, but not look like it.  I mean why hasn’t someone figured out how to make jumpsuits that don’t, in fact, look like jumpsuits but look like your favorite pair of jeans and a t-shirt?  With all of these advances in technology it seems there must have been an oversight.  Can we get someone on that please?  Thank you in advance!   Oh!  I know I kinda...

Jumpsuit + Leopard

Jumpsuit + Leopard

Let’s talk, just for a minute, about man repelling.  It’s the glorious idea of dressing in such a way that repels the opposite sex, brought to us by none other than the OG man repeller, Leandra Medine.  Full length jumpsuits are listed by name as one of the items that are straight up man repelling.  Do I care? Not one bit.  Will I wear them anyway? Of course!  Now, some of you may say that this is because I already have a boyfriend that will love me even if I choose to jaunt around town in a potato sack, BUT this isn’t true.  Well, it is true that he would love me in a potato sack, but it isn’t true that this is the only reason I allow myself to dress this way.  The number one reason I wear things like the very unflattering and completely matronly jumpsuit shown above is because I feel good in it.  Read: GOOD.  I did not say skinny, sexy, or any such thing.  I said good.  I feel so good in jump suits!  You don’t have to worry about things falling down when bending over or things coming up when arms are reaching above the head.  No, I am covered.  From head to toe I’m covered and I can go about my merry way sans any unwanted skin showing.  Not only does this jumpsuit have me all covered up, but the fit of it is such that I look about three sizes wider than I actually am.  As a clothing item that seems to want to hold it’s shape no matter what is...
