Breath of Summer

90s Grunge is one of my favorite time periods in fashion! 
Those free flowing rayon dresses were all over the place during every summer of the 1990s. 
I must have 50 of them hanging in my closet!! 
This tired ruffle knee length floral dress is my favorite!!
 I love the garden floral print and the big wide skirt. 
This is a very loose sundress. I enjoy the bigger less fitted sundresses. 
They feel so good on those 90 degree days when jeans or even shorts are too confining.
 I decided to throw on this dress for a quick walk in the park last week. 
I got so many compliments! Instead of wearing a plain pair of sandals with this look, 
I used my gladiator sandals instead. 
I love these sandals!! 
Gladiator sandals have such a unique look about them.
All and all this is one of my favorite looks to wear in the summertime!

Sunset Prairie

There's nothing I love more than to see excellent craftsmanship return to clothing. 
Shabbybabe is releasing a line of vintage inspired designs. 
Each piece is limited edition. 
This off the shoulder peasant dress is one of my favorites from the new collection. 
Its a fitted off the shoulder peasant top that flares out to a wide skirting. 
The dress is made from cotton eyelet,and has a cute blue floral trim along the hemline. 
What I love the most about this dress is the princess seams! 
The princess seams give this dress a great fit and flare. 
When wearing this dress its important to wear some amazing jewelry to go with it. 
I'm in love with this choker from Vidakush! It matches just about anything.
 I topped the look off with a few of my favorite bracelets and rings. 
Shop to see even more of the limited edition collection!

Mermaid Sighting

Theres a beach lover in all of us! 
I know I can't get enough of the beautiful beaches in summer.
 I'm there every weekend soaking up the sun. 
I was lucky enough to experience the California beaches over the summer.
They are spectacular! 
The beaches of Cali have big beautiful rocks, clear blue water, and the most golden soft sand.
 I found the ultimate sheer blue dress that a mermaid would wear!
 I wore this peacock feather print boho chic dress from Shabbybabe over my bathing suit. 
I put on a gold mesh metallic belt with a tribal fringe necklace.
 I feel like if a mermaid did get washed ashore she'd wear this dress too ha ha. 
Its a vintage 70s dress but truly looks brand new. 
The dress is made out of silk so the drape is perfect for a windy day. 
This beach was like something out of a dream.
I was the only one there that day, and I loved it!
I had a blast shooting this Look book. 
Theres nothing like watching the sunset over the ocean as the day ends.

Arabian Nights

 Theres Something about those far out bohemian prints in sheer fabrics that makes us feel like an Arabian princess!! 
This dress has been my favorite summer dress! 
I found it very accidentally. 
I was going through a few boxes of vintage clothing 
and I found this absolute showstopper of a dress!! I couldn't believe somebody got rid of it. 
A lot of these vintage clothes are very fine pieces!!! 
Most of the clothing has never even been worn. 
I see so many pounds of bails of gorgeous clothes that people just get rid of, 
and the question is why???? Like this black and white boho maxi dress!! 
It has a corset style back that laces up and is made of a rayon gauze…
 Gauze is the best fabric to wear on a windy beach day!! 
The gauze blows in the wind so beautifully and looks so romantic and feminine on the body.
 When seeing this dress on the hanger I thought, theres no way its gonna look good on me. 
After I put it on, my mind was blown as to how good it looked!!! 
The print is unbelievable. The dress has a tribal India vibe. 
Its so striking!!! 
The best part is, nobody I know has another dress like this one….
 I adore vintage because of the fact that theres only one of each piece….
 Theres nothing I hate more than to go shopping and see 2 or 3 people have on the same dress as me….
Not to mention textile mills, 
and the whole fashion industry has taken a radical change in the past 20 years…. 
There are prints and sewing techniques we'll never see again…
Quality in clothing has been traded in for Quantity in clothing….
That's why I work hard to save each piece of vintage clothing,
 this dress now has a new home in my closet…

Golden Hour

Its been all about color for me in my wardrobe this summer! I think one of the problems most of us have is, we get into a pattern of wearing black and white over, and over, and over again.  We do it so often we forget about the rich palette of colors available to us out there. I like to wear a bright colors like orange and style it with neutral accessories to balance it out. Brown goes great with sunset colors like orange and yellow. I took this cute little tube dress from Shabbybabe and put a wide vintage leather belt around the waist. I also accessorized the dress with a vintage 70s weaved bag.  I loved the end result! I could still wear orange and not look too loud with color. Red and black work beautifully together, so does pink and white, the list goes on and on..
 Wide leather belts from the late 60s and early 70s add a real edge to a simple outfit as well. I wear this brown leather belt with everything! Its one of those accessories that matches any outfit! Nobody even knows its vintage. People stop me on the street and compliment me on how they wish they could find a belt just like it. The best part about vintage is that there is nothing like it! Each piece is unique and special. I think that's what fashion should be all about. A wardrobe unique to you of one of a kind pieces nobody else has. That's what self expression through dressing is all about.
