Oh shorty

My last post got me thinking about how much I used to like showing my legs – it’s not that I don’t anymore, it’s just that the weather doesn’t really permit it here in San Francisco (and who am I kidding, I’ve become self-conscious about it!) So having been in Palm Springs gave me a flashback of a real summer where it’s okay to dress like this and not feel like you’re showing too much (cause everyone else is too!) just like when I lived in Vegas. This is my goodbye to summer post!

As always, click on the photo to get to the original post. And don’t worry folks, I always wear a pair of shorts underneath!

Bring on the cold weather outfits! Bon voyage short dresses.

PS. Hope you guys are ready for my Halloween posts coming :)

A Marc Jacobs kind of girl

My previous post reminded me of how much I have admired Marc Jacobs – there is always a great vintage-like twist to his brand, which I really love. I just wish it wasn’t made in China, but I’ve been lucky to have gotten most of the clothing second-hand at great prices! Do you ever feel like there are just some designers that get you!? So I’ve rounded up some of the Marc Jacobs things I’m lucky to have collected over the last few years!

As with other similar posts, click on the photo to get to the original post!

A little Marc by Marc purse that perfectly fits just my wallet, phone and keys! Here’s this seasons version

A roundup of patterned dresses!

The previous post reminded me of how much I love it when two of my favorite wardrobe things are combined – in this case patterns/prints and dresses! So I couldn’t resist making this huge roundup of some of my past favorites – I couldn’t even include them all! Hope you enjoy – and as always, click on the photo to get to the original post!

Pops of pink

The pink in my hair in the last post made me think about the color pink in my wardrobe. I think of pink as a condiment, it’s nice sprinkled in a bit here and there, but not the main taste. Hence why you won’t see me wearing a statement making piece like a pink coat or pink pants. It looks great on others, but I prefer making big statements with silhouettes and wearing patterns, to each their own.

So for this remix, enjoy these pops of pink over the years! Click on the photo to reach the original post

I always thought I didn’t have a lot of pink in my wardrobe until I did this roundup! Wow, I have a lot of pink! How do you feel about it in your closet?

Just a little bit of white

Nothing like getting caught wearing black in the summer that will make you want to burn all dark colored clothing (or at least hide them til winter) right? So seeing my summer whites from the previous post made me want to dig through the Thrift Eye archives to find some more snow white outfits. As always, click on the photo to head to the original post
