new loves and old friends

i know megan already did one of these posts today...sorry to be redundant. but they are kind of fun, right? anyway, in my opinion, some of the easiest vintage pieces to wear are boots and blazers. i have piles of vintage boots. i am particular to vintage cowboy and riding boots...


here are some of them. i count ten pair there. does anyone actually need that many pairs of cowboy boots? probably not even actual cowboys. i may have a problem here...i didn't even bother to take a photo of my blazers. that may be an even bigger obsession...

again, anyway, these two items are also super fun and easy to pair with the new pieces in your closet! here is one way i like to do so...





oh, and your eyes do not deceive you. there is about 7 or 8 or so inches of hair gone from my head. see you later hair!!!

  12. okay, tweed blazer + cowboy boots is perfect. you look absolutely adorable, but not as "cutesy" as the word adorable would lead one to believe. know what i mean? i just love the look.
