Today is the vintage fashion show in Marietta. We spent most of the day on Friday getting into “shopping” mode by doing a little shopping. I refer to this as the training mode. My day started at the crack of dawn with my mother in the kitchen deciding to wash the dishes, really really loudly. She was banging and making an awful racket. I got up somewhat grumpily and walked into the kitchen an asked her, “couldn’t you find a set of drums?”We got dressed and then set off to the Estate sales. I am a junk monster at heart and I have to really make myself not bring home more things to pile up in my closets. After that, we went to the town square to have lunch, which was awesome. There was a small boutique we had to walk past on our way back to the car and you know that I HAD to check it out. When I was checking out, my sister decided to announce to the owner that I was a fashion blogger. I don’t think he was very impressed which must have ticked off my sister. She then started to tell him all my stats and she might have made me sound better than I really am. Lol!!! Anyway, you just wait until you see the cute purchases I made. As a teaser, I will tell you that a snake print and fur is involved. I bought this burgundy peplum top while we were in Charleston at the Ann Taylor outlet. My problem area is my middle and normally this is not a style that I would purchase. You can’t see very well but there is a band that goes right around the belly. I actually tried this top on before I left the store because I was just sure that it wouldn’t look good. I was really surprised that it fit and even looked pretty good. That just goes to show you that sometimes you need to try on items before you make an assumption.
The multi-strand leather and gold disk necklace is the Rhiannon. I loved how the leather just matched my cardigan. The Jaycee earrings are 3″ long and I am loving the longer earrings. I guess it is because my hair is getting longer because I have never been comfortable wearing the longer earrings before. That is another example of going outside my comfort zone. My bracelets are the Ashlyn and the Celine. Monogram jewelry is still a huge trend so you can’t go wrong buying things like that for Christmas presents.I am not sure this is the fashionable thing to do but I decided to wear a pair of socks with my peep-toe boots. I thought it looked fine but you gurls can tell me the truth about what you think. The suede w/fringe detail ankle boots are by Marc Fisher. These are really cute and look great with jeans or even with a dress.
This pair of jeans is really skinny. In fact, they are very similar to jeggings. This is a pair that I have had for a long time. They are by Earl Jeans and I think I bought them at TJ Maxx. My crossbody purse is one that was in my first StitchFix box. I kept this one because of the stitching and the tassel. I don’t carry it very much though since I prefer larger purses but I still wanted a small one for shopping trips, etc. There are just times when you don’t want to carry the kitchen sink around with you. Lol!
