Throwback Thursday

ThrowbackThursday

Throwing it back to this summer’s lighter days and blonder mane this Thursday. The January blues have been bringing me down this week, and I’m desperately looking forward to some sunshine ahead! (I have some exciting news to share with you guys, but it’ll have to wait another week or so.)

In the meantime, feast your eyes on this white horn chain necklace from Artists & Fleas. It’s a few years old at this point, and the clasp broke shortly before John (my fiancé-turned-blog photographer) snapped this shot. I cobbled it together so we could get the photo, but haven’t been able to wear it since. And while it didn’t cost much, like any unique item of jewelry, it cannot be replaced. Will I use its absence to justify digging for a similar ’70s-style gem? You bet’cha!

So it’s Sunday again and I’m officially over the slush and whipping wind outside. Consequently, I’ve curated my own form of spring inside. And, as you can see, my form of spring involves a combo of white and pink.

The white Loubies I snagged at Michael’s this December for a song. They’re currently my leading contenders for wedding footwear when marrying the hatted hunk in the polaroid above. (He’s pretty cute, right?) The necklace (ca. 1950s) is another wonderful vintage find from Pippin.

That’s all I’ve got for tonight, my darlings! I’ll bring you more things that sparkle soon.

There’s only one thing I love more than hunting for a unique piece of vintage jewelry—and that’s accidentally stumbling upon that unique piece of vintage jewelry. I stumbled upon this gem when I popped into Pippin (a neighborhood favorite) in order to kill some time before an event last week.

Dior. 1980s. Pretty special, don’t you think? I plan on wearing it every day…with jeans and a gray t-shirt.

Happy New Year, she said—three weeks later. Like the hibernating animal that I am, I typically don’t surface until spring, but, this year, I’m trying to make an exception. Call it a resolution, if you will.

Speaking of resolutions, I have one to share with you. For fear of sounding totally cliché, I’m going to do my absolute best to become a better blogger. And that doesn’t just mean updating this little website of mine more than once every two weeks. It also means honing in on what I really care about: accessories. (The aforementioned was one of my first words, believe it or not.) While vintage finds and overpriced footwear have always had their place here on this blog, it’s time to put them into focus. Because, if I’m going to be perfectly honest with you, I’m pretty over the whole outfit-of-the-day thing. It feels done. And I don’t like doing things that have already been done.

So that’s what’s happening. I’ll be showcasing more of what I really love and moving away from the standardized practices (and poses) of the current blogosphere. I think you’ll find it more interesting. I know I will. At the same time, I’d like to share a little more than just my latest shoe obsession. 2015 is going to be a big year for me, with some exciting changes in store, and I wouldn’t mind some company along the journey. So, if you’re with me, let’s get started!

Say what you will about Photoshop, but its ability to give New York (and my imagination) a white Christmas is fine by me. Speaking of Christmas, the man indulged my need to open presents early and got a very happy Hermès-wearing camper in return. I am truly spoiled.
