Loot Vintage Clothing [gimmetheloot.co.uk]

Today the Loot Vintage Clothing website went live!
Loot is a really cool company that will go hand pick Vintage clothing in the streets of Miami, New York City, LA, Barcelona, Paris, Milan, and London. The pieces are sold at a very affordable price so you won’t be breaking the bank just to get a few dresses. I love everything this company stands for, to give you a brief idea here is their “ethics hit list” copied straight from their site:

OUR VINTAGE ETHICS HIT LIST

1. The manufacture quality is a million miles above any high street chain.

2. The pieces are ‘one off’s’ you wont see anyone else in your item EVER.

3. It is essentially ‘recycled clothing’ which gets mother nature on side.

4. The clothing wasn’t produced using child labour or unethical means.

5. It’s cheap cheap cheap cheap cheap cheap cheap, like proper cheap.

I’ve included some pictures of my favorite items from the site. It’s really helpful that they include chest, waist, and length measurements on every article of clothing since standard size measurements aren’t always applicable. Included as well is a “Will fit size __ to __” to give you just a rough idea.

If you’re like me and have a difficult time rummaging around thrift stores to find something unique, then you should check this site out. For me, I have a hard time picturing thrift store clothes on and put together, but having the items hand picked and modeled really makes things so much easier for me. If you see something you like you have to act fast – there’s only one of each!
I can already tell that this is going to be a great resource for me to mix up my wardrobe a bit without spending too much.

You can access all of these clothes & explore around the site for yourself here.

Happy shopping! (:

Alex and Ani: Path Of Life

Today I got my first Alex and Ani bracelet! I’ve wanted one for a while now, so I’m quite excited. I only got one to start off with, but I already know which ones I’m going to get next. I can’t wait to have multiple ones to stack. I think 3 or 4 would be a good amount for me.
I’m not a huge bracelet wearer because I’m quite picky, but these I love. They are simple and they have meaning behind each charm.
Today I bought the Path of Life charm which represents strength, motivation, and knowledge. The next bracelets I want are my zodiac sign, leo, the mermaid, and the skeleton key.

Fashion Icon: The Olsen Twins

tumblr_mzn1ecv1pw1qza6uyo1_400

Ever since I was a young child, I was inspired by  Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen. I used to tell my hair dresser to “cut my hair like Mary Kate & Ashely”. That was when I was about 6 years old. Now, at the age of 20 (quite soon to be 21, but who’s keeping track?) I still find inspiration in the Olsens.

Not only am I inspired by their fashion since, but also by their power. They’ve left the TV/movie world and have created their own fashion empire with their brands The Row and Elizabeth & James. Their ambition and success is something that I strive to have.
But, back to fashion. What I love about them: They’re classic. They stick to basic pieces, simple monochromatic color schemes, and timeless styles. Big bags. Oversized clothing. Simple makeup. I love it all. I’ve picked out a few images that I believe to incorporate their style that I love.

July Inspiration!

July Inspiration

 

Instead of making a June Favorites post, I figured I’d look ahead and make a July Inspiration post.
These are things/styles/looks that I am loving right now and hope to incorporate similar items into my wardrobe this month.

Let me know what you think & what you’re looking forward to for July!

First Pay Check Means First Shopping Haul!

I finally got my first paycheck from my first real job and it felt great! I had to go celebrate by shopping (: Being not so broke anymore is much more fun.

Here are the accessories that I got. If you’re interested, I can make another post showing you what clothes I bought as well & how I plan on styling them. But just a warning, they are mostly work clothes.

Everything in this post I got from Nordstrom Rack.

Anyways, first things first, I finally bought necklaces! I love wearing necklaces & I know that they can totally change the vibe of an outfit, but I always have a hard time spending money on them. I’m not sure why. Anyways, today I overcame that and bought two new statement necklaces. photo5 photo4-2
I also bought some very outgoing shoes. I’ll have to muster up the courage to wear them out, but I am determined to because I am just obsessed with them! photo2-5 photo3-3
I can’t wait to wear these with some nice skinny jeans or a tight midi skirt for a nice dinner or a night out. I have been loving the ankle strap style but have yet to purchase any shoes like that – until today!

The last thing I grabbed at checkout was this beautiful eye shadow palette from Smashbox. It’s the Soft Box. I’ve been wanting something that I can just throw in my purse & this was the perfect thing! The mirror is large and great quality. The colors are pretty neutral and can be used for any occasion. It also came with a double ended brush, which will probably come in handy. I can’t wait to try it out! photo6
Let me know what you guys think & if you’d be interested in seeing a clothing haul as well!
