More pieces that have caught my attention. Above is a beautiful leather jacket, something similar to what I've been looking for, but 10 times above my price range...
I go through strange phases in my life when it comes to fashion, and currently I've been tired of the ultra-femme/girly-girl look. I used to love it while working at Anthropologie, but lately I've been craving more edge and rock n' roll. I guess this phase came at the right time, as this upcoming season will be filled with leather, studs, metal, gilt, buckles, hardware and sequins, oh my!

Photos taken by Susan-Wearing my Mom's vintage top from the 70s, boots by Rough Justice.
Here is Susan, all decked out in F21. I think she looks fantastic!
Bracelets from F21- I ended up getting the cuff with the white leaves
There are always cute items at Target, and the prices rock!
Loved the print and feather of this fedora hat, but it didn't fit very well. I think I'm over it.
Ended the night with a Michael Jackson concert in the park- obviously, they were a bunch of impersonators.
Had brunch with the Hubby Sat. morning. As you can tell, I'm not a morning person, but I'll get up for good food!
A unique breakfast burrito with duck confit, sweet potatoes, eggs, gruyere and tomatillo sauce
Bananas foster french toast on brioche bread, topped with vanilla bean whipped cream. It was to die for.

Marni suede platform sandals, Charlotte & Olympia Dolly platform pumps
Chloe shift dress, Fendi two-toned baguette
Current/Elliot denim vest, Thakoon silk crepe ruffle mini-dress
Ads with Marion Cotillard for Christian Dior were plastered everywhere when I was in Paris- I became obsessed with her after Love Me If You Dare (Jeux d'enfants). I think her and Audrey Tautou ( for Chanel) make wonderful spokeswomen for French luxury brands.

Spontaneously went to a garage sale on Saturday while waiting for my family and picked up a load of stuff. The lady was getting rid of her vintage items and I came at the right time. I could hardly contain my excitement when I bought all six items for fifteen bucks (ok and 50 cents). Wouldn't you be excited too?
Moschino Cheap & Chic vintage cropped "joker" blazer, $5-The lady recommended this jacket to me and at first I was thinking it was a lil crazy, but it grew on me. She said she would have to charge me more for this one because it was a special item. I didn't bother to bargain because the jacket alone probably retailed for 1k.
Silk & velvet "band" vest, $2.50- she purchased it in the 80s at some boutique at the Beverly Center.
And more sequins (can you tell I love sequins?), sequin dress, $1- Apparently someone gave her this dress and she never had a chance to wear it. I'm going to have to figure out a way to make it less trashy-looking.
This wasn't part of the garage sale, but I purchased it two weeks ago from F21. It's kind of bold n' Blair Waldorf-looking, but I loved how they used a zipper to form the bow.
I've been trying to organize better this summer and have finally gotten around to placing our professional wedding photos chronologically into an album. Yes, its been more than two years since the day of our wedding.
Several weeks ago, I saw the divider bar for your closet on sale at Bed Bath Beyond. I ran out and bought two rods and it has saved me ample closet space. It's not easy sharing a closet, so you have to make the best of it!
On another note, I can now shamelessly say that I have posted my "services" (stylist, art teacher & photographer) to the people I know on Facebook to see if I can make it a side job. My friends have been encouraging me to at least become a stylist on the side. I always feel like it's wrong to get paid while doing something I love, but I suppose that's the beauty in it.
