I’ve worn this blazer and dress together before, but am almost certain the combo never made it onto the blog. It brings me so much joy when an item I’ve had for ages (long-ago thrifted blazer) turns out to be a perfect color match for a newer item (year-old dress). I feel like my clothes have found their life partners when this happens. Because I’m a goof like that. read more

I love this tunic so hard with its quirky print and darling a-line shape … but the pockets never quite sat right. So, much as it pained me to de-pocket ANYTHING, I sewed them shut and now when I wear the tunic I look a lot less like I’m smuggling baby bunnies at my hips. I think it’ll get loads more wear now post-pocket-adjustment. read more

This is another outfit that got worn while working a shift at Corset. It doesn’t strike me as particularly retro, but while I was chatting with a truly adorable older gal she suddenly grabbed my arm and said, “You’ve got such a fun retro look going on!” I wondered if the new spiky ‘do would clash with some of my dressing preferences, but I’m actually enjoying the juxtaposition. Retro rocker it is. read more
