Haha how cheesy was that title. Anyway, with fresh spring merchandise hitting stores as we speak, I’m getting more excited about what exactly I’m going to be putting on my must-have list. Here are some of my favorite (pre-blog) pictures of me from last summer I thought I’d share, photography courtesy of the boyfriend except the last. Excuse the trashiness of that shot, it was his birthday and he miraculously didn’t end up contracting footworms.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaay back. My poor mother looks so stressed out.

Denim on top

Stretch denim in the form of not-jeans…scary territory. This denim dress is sadly more of a tunic so I decided to innovate and wear it as a top. It’s a tad bulky underneath the thinner cotton skirt but the full pleats kind of allow this to be masked.

Denim dress, secondhand. Scarf and skirt, vintage. Bag, vintage Chanel. Sunglasses, picked up this weekend at Urban Outfitters. Jewelry, F21, H&M, and vintage. Boots, Jessica Simpson.

Creamy lace heaven

Once in a while in my travels, I come across a truly breathtaking vintage piece that actually makes my heart start pounding harder. I saw all the potential in this one when I picked it up, but I think the fit even exceeded those expectations. I think I would actually describe those sleeves as glorious and mean it. Alas, I can’t keep every vintage gem I find..my puny closet that my boyfriend has already sacrificed most of for me doth overflow. Up for auction on eBay right now, ending on Wednesday.

The return of the preferred rich girl

Ally Hilfiger! I fell in love with her hippie-dippie-with-a-Birkin routine on MTV’s Rich Girls (why is this not available on DVD? I would totally shamelessly purchase!) and was saddened when I was no longer able to see her in all her headscarfed glory due to the show’s quick demise. Memories of watching her angst-ridden attempt to make a burrito and shopping for candy in a tiara, boa, and aviators stick out most strongly. The girl could almost rival Rachel Bilson for tiny brunette cuteness, and I’m weirdly enthralled by her chipmunky facial structure. Whatever she was doing since her reality TV sting (rehab? eh don’t care), she’s upped the style factor and I find myself lurking in her revived thread at thefashionspot semi-frequently. And can I also say how much I am entertained by the randomness of this quote from nymag?

Ally is a painter. “I do a lot of different versions of the number 8,” she said.

Awesome.
