Neon Navajo

I work at a clothing exchange/vintage store and my boss keeps a blog for the shop, found here. On a slow day we put together some looks and snapped some photos. I figured I’d post this one because I love this outfit. While the native print trend is currently being run into the ground, I couldn’t help but feel fab in this soft, fringed tee. I paired it with a bright orange fitted skirt, woven bracelets, a vintage bag and some amazing pewter Dolce Vita sandals.

Festival Ready

Summer music festivals have begun, and here in New Orleans we’re in the middle of JazzFest. I had to post this great outfit, featuring Dolce Vita metallic sandals.

Spring Styling!

While some of you out there are freezing, New Orleans has warmed up. The weather is perfect right now and its already starting to feel like Spring. It just so happens that this time around, I got to style the displays at work and I chose some fun, bright looks to get everyone’s minds off the chilly Winter. (Pardon the cell phone photos!)

I did these three with V-Day and Spring in mind, which sometimes don’t really go hand in hand.

The first outfit features high-waisted lace shorts, a salmon pink long sleeve henley and vintage suede vest with fringe for a bright and edgy look.

The second is classically modern vintage, a long paisley dress, vintage pearls, and a mint green belt at the waist.

The third is girly and adorable; I chose a crisp white shirt with a cute Peter Pan collar, draped floral shrug, a bright pink pencil skirt and a cute bird pendant.

For this outfit I wanted simple, cute, 90’s. I used all vintage pieces circa the 1990’s. (Which probably makes it easier? Maybe the challenge would have been to use modern pieces?)

Alexa Chung Is Coming to A City Near You

 

Alexa Chung is the absolute best at making vintage, thrifted clothing fabulous. Or at making new clothing look vintage. Or making vintage clothing look fresh and new. Or making the “slouchy” look really work. She’s just good, man.

And now she’s bringing her style and thrifting abilities to PBS of all places with her new show Thrift America. She’ll travel the U.S. in search of great pieces at garage sales, consignment shops and the like. I’m super excited because I love thrifting and vintage shopping, and I love the idea of Alexa Chung showing me how. I’m also really hoping she makes her way to New Orleans because I personally think we have a great number of wonderful thrift stores. Will you be tuning in this Summer?
