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!

Oh Palm Springs

Palm Springs ended up being one of those places I never really went to (spent one night there years ago while passing through to somewhere else) – that was until we were able to head there for a wedding. I wore my summer finest, which gave me flashbacks of living in Las Vegas during the hot summers – the heat sticks to your body and you avoid going out during the peak heat moments. But, because I’ve been deprived of this type of weather so long, I just went with it. Poolside by the day, wedding fun at night. All I could have asked for. This lady has needed a break.

I can see why people like coming back now, I’m ready to explore Palm Springs more one day.

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).

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!

Do you have that one fashion find that you hope to get one day?

Suit for a woman

Are you guys familiar with the term Le Smoking? It goes beyond just a suit women wear, but carries a lot of meaning in breaking the rules of fashion. I’ve always been fascinated by the idea and how to incorporate it into my wardrobe. So when I separately thrifted this tuxedo pant and then this tuxedo type of jacket, I was just waiting for the right moment to wear them together.

This isn’t an outfit to hang around the house for sure – we had a special dinner for a friend that was here from out of town. A classy place, calls for a classy outfit. And AHA! This was the perfect moment where I could wear my Le Smoking. I still felt very feminine, and I think that is what’s so special about wearing a suit as a woman.

Jacket: Akris, thrifted. Blouse: Equipment, thrifted (different color here). Pants: Trouve, from Buffalo Exchange. Wedges: Yves Saint Laurent, from Buffalo Exchange (there’s always a pair for sale on ebay!) . Purse: Marc by Marc Jacobs. Lipstick: Revlon Colorburst in Tutti Frutti.
