i thought i’d try this colorblocking nonsense for myself, since i “found” this orange dress in my closet this morning.  i am about to start on a 4 month stretch of no vintage shopping…and no shopping in general…so you can expect a lot more outfits like this where i break out stuff i don’t wear very often.

i’m still wearing this leopard-print trench coat i thrifted 5 years ago in london.  that was before leopard print was “back in”, guys – how fashion forward am i?  and the abalone necklace was purchased at a thrift store in paris.  this post makes me sound much cooler than i am because of all the international references, but what can i say…i like to travel and vintage/thrift stores are the first thing i check out in a new city.

outfit details: orange dress is bcbg; teal silk shirt and trench coat are thrifted; mustard tights are hue; boots are doc marten darcies – i couldn’t love these boots more if i tried.

song inspiration: “get a heart” by the drowning men.  this song is my latest obsession.  i have been listening to it over and over.  they are currently touring with airborne toxic event, so try to catch the show if you can.  it will be worth it, i promise!

    I like this take on color-blocking because it’s fun and punchy and it includes a pair of docs and a leopard coat. Your internationally thrifted items have me seething with jealousy over here, so thanks. Good luck on the shopping ban- it’s a good time of year for one.
