Gracey Wears: Micro Leopard

Hello Already Pretty Readers!  Happy New Year!

Today I’d like to talk about a very serious issues that has recently come to my attention.  Did you know – brace yourselves – that there are some people in the world who don’t like leopard?!!  What?!!  I know!!!  I could hardly believe it myself!  But, it’s true.  Sad, so very sad, but true.

After I found this out, I knew it was my duty as a card-carrying Leopard-Loving Fashionista (LLF, we meet every Wednesday at the local library) to help those poor misguided souls who find leopard overpowering or, gasp, tacky.  After much research (shopping), I have found the answer. read more

Thrifting for Trends: Fall/Winter 2013 Edition

It’s time, once again, to examine the hot “new” trends for the season, and remind ourselves that fashion recycles EVERYTHING! Here are just a few of the garments, colors, and styles that are trending for spring and summer that you can easily track down at your local thrift and consignment shops. (Note that all of the on-trend items I’m wearing below have been thrifted. Already.)

Cobalt

COBALT2

Cobalt was declared a trend just a few seasons back, but it is definitely the color to covet for fall and winter. This color is marvelous with gray and fun with black or black and white prints, but also try pairing it with magenta, neon yellow, purple, or navy. Cobalt is a strong shade and can overpower some complexions, but wearing it in a skirt, pants, or pair of shoes will work beautifully. As is the case with all color trends, these ones will be among the easiest to thrift! read more

Gracey on Printed Shoes

Today I want to talk about printed shoes. I was actually hesitant to try printed shoes because I was afraid they’d be less versatile than non-printed shoes. But, I have fabulous news; Printed shoes are very versatile! And fun! So, you  know, win-win.

Leopard/Animal

Seeing as animal print is practically a neutral, animal print shoes are probably the easiest to wear. Personally, I like to pair mine with other prints. (And, apparently, pleated skirts.)

Animal print is also great with solid colors, both brights and other neutrals. read more
