I have been hitting up thrift stores, antique galleries and estate sales since before I started driving (thanks in large part to my grandmother, who would drag me to these things long before I actually wanted to go). So over the years, I’ve amassed a collection of some pretty spectacular things. Sometimes, these items come with a nice label attached (Chanel, Goyard, etc.) but other times, these are just really great items that are too interesting to pass up. Case in point: this awesome two-piece. The palazzo pants are awesome on their own (I’m envisioning them with a red crop top come spring) and the shirt pairs well with jeans. But when worn together, they take on an entirely new light. Here, I tied the top up so that it showed off the high waist of the pants, and wore it with my favorite hat for a look that might be more Spring than Fall. But hey, it’s Florida.
Pants and Top: Vintage // Heels: Givenchy // Bracelet: Vintage Lagerfeld // Panama Hat: J. Crew // Clutch: Bottega Veneta
When it comes to fashion/decor/art in general, I am all about juxtaposition. And balance. I love to mix, but it’s important that an ensemble (or a room, if we’re talking decor) isn’t too anything—too preppy, too bohemian, too vintage… I like to mix it all together. I am just not the girl that is going to wear a neon chevron dress with minimal jewelry, or rock the same “arm party” as every other girl in the room. I like taking risks and I like wearing clothes that reflect my personality. In my home, you’ll find a pair of Wasilly chairs framing a vintage Persian rug, in the same room as a vintage Goyard trunk, modern coffee table and vintage Native American headdress. I take the same approach when I get dressed every day. This top is from J. Crew, about four years ago. While it might be predictable to pair it with a J. Crew skirt, in a complementary color, I think it looks great topped with a vintage fur stole and worn with distressed denim and vintage crystal jewelry, and animal-print heels.

I apologize for the extended hiatus. I am still getting adjusted to my new job, and have been in the process of buying a car (which was, fortunately successful and I now drive an SUV so if I do get in any more car-accidents, the damage hopefully won’t be as bad.)
This outfit looks a little school marm-ish, I suppose, but it is very comfortable and feels a bit vintage, which I like. I wore this to work the other day with flats but I think it works just as well for a nice dinner, with a pair of chunky platforms.
I’m wearing an Elizabeth & James silk top, Marc by Marc Jacobs skirt, Missoni for Target cardigan, Miu Miu platforms and Balenciaga bag. The earrings are vintage Chanel.
Since starting my job, where I dress up nearly every day, I've been keeping it rather casual outside of work. For most people, this might mean sneakers and a t-shirt, but I do love my heels, even on casual
In addition to finding two amazing pieces of Lanvin last week at an estate sale, I also came away with this great skirt. It's not by a well-known designer, but I love it nonetheless. It's starting to get
I will be the first to admit that I have insanely good luck when it comes to finding vintage designer items. I've found Lanvin blouses and Bottega Veneta bags at thrift stores, and Chanel scarves at estate
One of my go-to looks is a collared shirt worn under a sweatshirt or sweater. I just think it looks so pulled together and pairs well with both denim and dressier fabrics, like silk and leather. The weather
The weather has been vacillating from cool, to cold, to boiling hot - so I never really know what to wear when I wake up in the morning. Today was somewhat overcast, so I chose to go with layers.
This past weekend was pretty much perfect. I got to spend time with my grandmother and my wonderful boyfriend (who was so kind to go antiquing with me - he is definitely not the antiquing type), eating
My boyfriend, grandmother, mom and I are planning a big antiquing trip this weekend. It's an annual thing for us and I'm so excited I can't quite stand it. I usually come away with lots of vintage jewelry
