Remix: Converse All-Star

I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed wearing my Converse! The best part is that I’m glad I can wear them on casual days at work! (happy I get to work at a place that allows for casual wear once in awhile.) I looked high and low for the best price online, and I noticed they changed their sizing a bit. So I was hesitant to purchase online without trying them on first, only to find that DSW had them at the best price. I luckily have one nearby. See HERE.

Before I had the black hi-top’s, I had the grey lo-top’s. Perfect shoes for sunny weather!

I can’t believe I was so adventurous with this outfit! I basically wore a baggy tank dress with a funky sportsbra underneath! Hot Las Vegas weather makes you do (and wear) crazy things!

I just realized and remembered that when I worked at Fornarina, this was known as the top that Kim Kardashian bought too. haha!

I only brought 2, maybe 3, pairs of shoes on my 2009 Euro-trip. The Converse were my sporty walking pair. This was me at the Louvre!

These pants are so baggy *shudders*

Oh gosh, I thought my drop crotch pants were so cool! I recently organized some clothes and found these again – I won’t get rid of them because my mom made them for me!!

Remix: Burberry trench coat

It was interesting to go back and see how I’ve worn this trenchcoat over the years – I think it really lends itself to be layered, and I really like that about it. I do wish I’d worn it more, I won’t deny that. It’s wasteful of me to have it just sitting in the closet for so long. I even like how I wore it down there with the black belt. So know I know to not wait for that damn rainy day to wear it!

I think you can have pretty good luck on Ebay finding one fairly cheap. I search for vintage Burberry trench coats – some are expensive, but you can find a reasonably priced one here and there. Like I mentioned, mine only cost $30! Per usual with these remix posts, click on the image to see the original post.

The boots were a little clunky for this outfit, but hey! It was raining!

I loved these night-time San Francisco pictures, I felt like a spy.

This is where I should have known this was too short on me, and to never ever belt it like that again!

Wearing it belted and open, looks much better. This was my last outfit before moving away from Las Vegas!

I found some early blog photos – here was an almost completely neutral outfit.

Back when I worked at Fornarina. I loved those weird boots! My 2007 hair was so weird!

Remix: Denim jacket

So I was bummed a few months ago – I was sure I’d donated one of my favorite denim jackets in a cleaning, post *magic of tidying-up* frenzy. And then…I realized it had just been doubled up on the hanger, hiding underneath another jacket. OOF! Well that was a relief, especially since Spring weather is perfect for denim jackets.

Rocking the denim jacket with a white dress, dreaming of warm weather so I can do this again!

I LOVED this outfit because it mixed 3 different kinds of denim, I’ve never been able to find a replacement for those dark green J. Brand pants!

This was me figuring out my style after living in SF a few months. I like how I layered the leather vest!

This is actually the inspiration to the outfit at the top! I still have this frilly white dress (and the boots), maybe I can just recreate this outfit now? These photos from 2009 make me laugh now, cause I was rocking the ombre hair way before it was cool 😉

Remix: Black Opaque Tights

I’ve been a huge fan of pantyhose tights for a very long time, since way before I started this blog (which is almost ten years ago!!) My mom always made my sisters and I wear them as kids. I know some people aren’t huge fans (they definitely can feel like they make your body into one big sausage sometimes) but I find that they can add a great element to your outfit – they can elongate the lines of your body, especially black tights, but fun tights always add whimsy to a colorful outfit! What’s not to love? I for one also love the gut support, hah! My personal favorites are DKNY opaque tights. Now, if I could only find some that never run at the toes, I would be in heaven!

In this remix post, I want to stick to showcasing black tights. Per usual with these remix posts, click on the image to see the original post.

Black with bright pops of colorful stripes.

This is a dress I can basically only wear with tights! It’s a heavy dress that’s only for cooler weather, so I’d definitely not be wearing it during warm weather. It makes me feel like a prim Mad Men extra.

Black tights with this black mesh skirt are always a good combination!

See! Same skirt. Wearing it with a shirt I made (gotta dig that top out of the bottom of the drawer soon!)

I want to wear this skirt more, but the velvet is kinda weird? (at least on me)

I’ve been wearing this same outfit for the last few years since I’ve had this dress! Dress and tights stay the same, boots change.

I bought these damn Emma Cook boots for an incredible steal on Ebay and they are the MOST painful shoes I’ve ever worn. I loved this outfit, still have all the pieces. But gosh, those damn stupid shoes!

I felt like this was my 50’s gal cosplay! The dress is long gone now, I sold it recently because it shrunk to Lolita sizing that didn’t work for me anymore.

This is just a tiny drop in the bucket to all my hosiery obsessed outfits!
