Last week we had a glimpse of spring, the weather felt just right and I was finally able to bust out a vintage 2pc playsuit I purchased in Vegas. It is a pastel green gingham top and skirt that was on sale the last day of vlv so I had to have it and was glad I even found it for just $32! I was even lucky that it was perfectly my size! Being the impatient person I am, I grabbed it and through it on with my new Prada SS 2012 shades I acquired just a few weeks ago. It was my first time busting out these bad girls (Prada shades) too and I was so stoked. They didn’t necessarily go with my outfit but I didn’t care and wore them till the sun went down, that’s when I changed to my silver cat-eye glasses that actually complimented my outfit better. I kept my accessories light with a vintage bag, some thrifted pumps, an H&M bracelet, and my vintage clip on earrings and went off to meet my mother in the city. Ironically when I met her she too was in vintage and was wearing a vintage 2pc dress and cardigan she acquired at the Manhattan Vintage show with me a few months ago. I actually found her this dress and was so happy it fit and that she liked it too. We all know how hard vintage can be when it comes to finding the right size and waist. She looked amazing in her dress and it happened to be shades of green as well. She wore her dress with black kitten heels and a black purse. Nice and simple. We were quite the vintage duo. Like mother like daughter! Check out more inside!
I kinda hate that I put this outfit on my blog, I want to wear it again and again and again….and I will!My shoes matched my ensemble perfectly! Gotta love an outfit that works!Sadly this vintage wicker purse died on that day, the latch broke off :(. Anyway, as you can see, I kept toggling my glasses. I couldn’t choose so I wore both throughout the day despite these looking better with the outfit.I haven’t done a pompadour in ages and it felt good to do it again. I wore a snood to keep the back together.
Many of you always ask me about my lipstick, I always wear Stila Liquid Lip Color in the red color-way. It is my secret weapon and I never leave the house without it, in any of their colors.This is my beautiful mother in her lovely 2pc vintage dress and cardigan ensemble. My mother is minimal in accessorizing as well and wore her vintage wedding ring and simple tear drop earrings.I love the way this dress looks on her! She has the perfect figure for vintage dresses. She is so cute, she’s shy in front of the camera.These are the black kitten heels she wore with the dress, I wish you could see the purse but she left it at her job.I was so happy we got to take this photo together. I love my mother so much, she is the light of my life and I do not know what I would do without her.
It is just so cool to have something in common with my mother, we both love so many of the same things. If you want to know where my fashionista ways came from, it is from this woman. Thank you mom for inspiring me for life.
