There are morning’s when I feel very content throwing on a t-shirt and jeans that have been sitting on my floor from the day before.  But some days I wake up and I’m a perfectionist.  Every item is scrutinized, examined for it’s perfectness with the rest of the outfit.  Yesterday was such morning.  I blame it on PMS (isn’t it easy sometimes to blame everything on it?), because it’s always around the same time that I get VERY particular about the way everything is arranged, not only on myself but at home and at work, so I’m guessing hormones have something to do with it.
Normally I am a stickler for time, so if I make plans with you to meet at 12 somewhere, you bet your ass I will be there by noon if not a few minutes early.  The only factor I can’t account for is this persona that comes out of me once in a blue moon (or should we say once a month) and the constant failures of the MTA to get me where I need to be.
Yesterday I had plans for brunch with a friend (and amazing “vintage clan” member and owner of Dusty Rose Vintage) and eager to show off my new (old) crochet sweater found at Beacon’s closet just this past Friday. I had a vision for this top.  The sweater screams “I made this while drinking hot cocoa in a cabin in 1972”.  So naturally, I wanted to rest of the outfit to feel 70’s too.  I paired the top with my Urban Outfitters jeggings (so comfy), a shrunken school boy blazer (goodwill), my suede coat (thrift store) and my kiltie monk strap shoes (etsy) and let’s not forget the vintage Louis Vuitton satchel (No Relations).  After a heavy red lip application (NARS) and some texturizing cream in my new hairdo (do you like the new cut?) I finally felt really good, albeit ALMOST late to brunch.

Can we talk about the amazing bead details on this top? Cause I just can’t deal.

And while we are on the subject of subjects, what is with my obsession with graffiti and street art? I’m like a moth drawn to light. I swear my Iphone is so overcrowded with photos of streetart I had to delete a bunch of apps to make room for more. #addicted

    Great look. That sweater **is** cool – the colours and detailing are choice.

      Thanks! It was love at first sight.. I must admit though, it’s not something I would usually pick out.. but the fit and the details and the colors somehow made it very much pretty in thrift :)
