Emotion and Influence



While I was Christmas shopping Sunday at Hot Topic (I have some super hero fans in my family) I spotted this little pop of a red flower pin/ barrette and immediately thought of Coco from Our Paper Moon!  She always has the best headwear and while hers are usually vintage and very classy looking and mine is a cheep plastic flower, I just had to do a little tribute to her.  I found this vintage dress at the thrift shops on Sunday too (I know, I have no self control!) Its a little long and a little wrinkled, but I have asked for a steamer for Christmas so hopefully all my wrinkle problems will be solved forever!  The sleeves are sheer and the back cutout is just a shocker! I just kept thinking "Coco."

When I buy at the shops I do it quickly based on emotion rather than common sense.  Photographed below are just a few of the cuter and weirder things I found including a sweet dot sundress, a couple of immaculate printed boho dresses, these SUPER CRAZY little girl style petticoat layers skirts and a dress, and the MOST AMAZING DR. MARTENS I have ever seen!!!!




I know Right!  I am half insane and half super lucky.  I'll take both I guess.

I am loving all of these. Especially the first.

I got inspired and pulled some vintage dresses that I had out of storage. Sadly, none of them are very wearable by day. Any ideas for how to convert a 50s(?) cocktail dress into an outfit?
