Remix: Orla Kiely

It has just been a week of all things Orla Kiely over here! So I thought I’d finish up by posting a remix of the few Orla Kiely items I have.

Per usual with these remix posts, click on the image to see the original post.

This was my birthday outfit! This chartreuse dress is simply the dress of my dreams!

This Orla print dress is just perfect, I still love wearing it as much as the day I bought it

My beautiful Orla scarf that I wear…oh, almost every day!

Have you ever seen this dreamy Orla Kiely dress? I found one at a steep discount a few years ago. I had my mom mend it to my size, but have never, ever, ever, ever found any fitting event to wear it to! It’s almost too beautiful to wear. So for now, it sits in a closet…gotta remedy this! At the moment, this is the only picture I have of it!

2015 moments

Oh dear, 2015 went by too quickly, but not quickly enough! This also means I’m rapidly approaching 10 years of blogging (!!!!!) When I graduated from college with my Bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing and asked myself “Now what?!” in regards to the writing part…I guess you can say I have been writing creatively for almost ten years then :)

And I’ll always be grateful that this blog let me explore and learn more about what goes into making clothing in the USA and shopping sustainably. 2015 was also big in travel for me – as I was able to tick 3 destinations from my travel list – Tokyo, Oahu, and Portland/Seattle

But here are 12 outfits that were my monthly favorites! I’ll consider this a remix post, and per usual, click on the image to see the original post!

Here’s to 2016! Cheers!

Remix: Spots and dots

When I lived in Las Vegas, I loved wearing prints and mixing & matching them. Then I moved to San Francisco and I’m not sure what happened?! But I’ve tried to incorporate more prints back into my wardrobe – especially like the top from the previous post. I went back into the Thrift Eye archives to round up my polka dot outfits.

I can’t wait for the weather to warm up a bit in the Spring to wear this again (right now it’s a rainy cold mess, but we need all the rain we can get in California)

My spotty DvF skirt that I love and wear all the time!

I recently finally donated this American Apparel skirt because I’m over that hill now…it was cute, but just way too sexy for me to wear again.

I forgot I used to have this vintage turtleneck. I loved the mint green spots. I donated it a while back too.

Not sure why I don’t wear this skirt more often, I still have it hanging in the closet!

I also still have this dress my mom made for me, but I definitely don’t get a chance to wear it as much as I should.

This was over 5 years ago! These were the kind of quirky Las Vegas outfits I used to wear. I still have this top, it comes out to play once in awhile :)

Remix: turtleneck time

I own exactly 3 turtlenecks tops. They’re all a variation of each other. And they’re all I need until they fall apart one day. I’m always tempted to just donate them – that is, until the cold whips back around and I curse the bitter winds (I get cold very easily.)

I think the best trick about turtlenecks, is to remember you can always layer them! I had to learn this after not being able to wear basically half my warm weather Las Vegas wardrobe when I moved to San Francisco. So this thin silky dress can be worn with layers!

See? more layering – mix up the colors and patterns!

I like how this outfit was just a mixture of very Fall colors

Turtlenecks saved for emergencies, like super rainy days!

I think this was the year I finally figured out that I could layer a turtleneck under a dress! Gosh I miss my long hair!

Yikes, so many wrinkles! I still love this outfit, but hate my execution. I think I could have worn this so much better! Can I time travel back to 2010 with a steam iron?

I’ll admit, the one thing I hate about turtlenecks is that they end up feeling like the clothing equivalent of being in a toaster by the end of the day!
