Shades of green

Sooo…I owned (yes, past tense) only one black belt. Because why would you need more than one? And then…it disappeared. I can’t find it. I don’t know if I lost it while traveling. Maybe I threw it away on accident. Something so simple as a belt can change an outfit. I’m not in a rush to replace it, because alas, I have a handful of other belts I rotate (and because most of the time, you can’t even see it).

This outfit for example, I pulled together these three different shades of green, and a black belt would have just thrown the whole thing off. On that note, I think if I had the black belt, I may have fallen into a safer version of what this outfit could be.

It’s fitting, especially being surrounded by this moss that is slowly eating our back patio :)

Romper time

When in Rome! I haven’t worn this romper in a hot minute (no pun intended). So I figured, if I can’t wear it in San Francisco, I’d have to wear it when I visited Palm Springs (posts are delayed because of Halloween posts, I promise this is the last time you see shorts here this season – but I have winterized this romper before, evident in this past post).

Hello Fall – I’ve gotten some coats and boots replaced recently, and can’t wait to introduce you to them!

Disneyland play

Sometimes you just got to unwind and enjoy yourself in a kiddy way, so we escaped to Disneyland for a little bit (although, the price tag isn’t as enjoyable as of late). I found my most Minnie Mouse looking outfit, comfy shoes, finally got myself a little embroidered cap, and I was set! Only kids are allowed to wear costumes, but there aren’t any rules about having fun with your outfit!

Psssst, I’ll be trying out this new table form for the outfit information – so I can track my shopping sustainability a bit better. I’d love your feedback about it (if you have any).

The one that got away

When there is something I like, I remember it forever until it’s mine. So don’t find it odd that I’ve had this one specific dress in my mind since I saw it in 2008 – I usually don’t pine over things I see on the runway. BUT I could not get this Marc by Marc Jacobs dress out of my mind. I waited, and waited, and waited (for a good sale) until it went away and I never found it. I always had hope I’d see it again. And then I did while browsing the racks at Wasteland. I held onto the dress, walked around the store clutching it – like it was too good to be true, like someone would pull it from my hands and tell me it wasn’t for sale (fears that arise when you find something you really want – I think other thrifters can relate!)

But it fit, and it’s mine! Yahoo!

Dress: Marc by Marc Jacobs (if you search for Marc by Marc Jacobs Alessandra on ebay you can find several for sale). Tights: Kate Spade. Shoes: Rachel Comey. Earrings: Marc by Marc Jacobs. Lipstick: Bare Minerals. Watch: vintage Futura.

A dress off the bucket list

There are just some things a woman who thrifts wants to find (I speak for myself clearly). I always dreamt that I would find a vintage Pucci dress, in all its 60′s swirly goodness. But I’ve never, ever, had the luck of finding anything. Like, even remotely close. I could find a new Herve Leger dress and Yves Saint Laurent heels, but yet I couldn’t find this one thing!

So when my sister called me, and asked if I wanted a Pucci dress, I was sure that it was either a) really expensive or b) she was joking. But here she was, handing me my one impossible find (thank you Diana!). It really is the perfect summer dress. Now I need a real vacation to use it! So that’s one more tick off the fashion bucket list!
