New Firmoo Glasses & Sweater

I’m feeling Spring-y with my super fun retro-y new glasses from Firmoo.com. They are a lovely magenta-red that rolls into a soft creamy translucent color, with some fun vintage metal “arrows” on the corners. I’ve received several compliments on these already, and my mom said, “Take your old glasses off immediately and wear these instead.” Ha! Yes, mom!

I also took my new vintage-style jumper from London (sweater, hehe) for a spin in the Spring sun (don’t be fooled, it was still cold). I could NOT resist this darling little sweater. It’s absolutely SO 1950s-school-teacher-Laverne-&-Shirley-esque which I ADORE. So especially fun with my new glasses.

The sweater is a tad on the short side, so I tucked a nude cami in underneath it (which helps with the sheerness, too), so don’t worry, you aren’t seeing my tummy. They call this shirt a “one size” but I’m not sure how they think this is one-size, since if you were any bit bigger than me, it wouldn’t fit. Bummer.

I love these magenta high heel smoking slippers. They are just so fun and unexpected. The multi-strand pearl bracelet has gotten so much wear since I received it from my boyfriend’s mom for my birthday a few months ago.

I popped a little green velvet hair bow at the top of my bun, too, for an extra dash of charm. One can never have too many “dashes of charm.” 
I’m so pleased with my retro-styled glasses from Firmoo.com. The quality is top-notch and they are beautiful. The price can’t be beat and the quality is definitely there. I definitely recommend them!

Happy almost-Spring!

Sequins and Suede

My friends have been asking me for more style posts. Truth be told, you wouldn’t want to see most of my style from recently, ha! It’s been your standard March-in-New-England parade of jeans tucked into muck boots with varying sweaters, vests, and scarves. It’s all rather formulaic and predictable. 

But Sundays…well, on Sundays I can be persuaded (per-sueded? ha, crack myself up ;)) to put on some suede and sequins. And some color. Oh man am I craving color in my wardrobe right now! So this outfit is from Sunday 🙂
 Are you craving spring and your spring wardrobe? I am! It’s almost here!

Dressy Dress

la-teeee-dah

pockets!

Exposed Zipper!
Bumped hair with pink bobby pins—rest of hair twisted around back to side pony 🙂

Lots of studs…studded belt + stud earrings, too,

Purple makeup + false eyelashes. 
Light pink headband plus light pink belt. 
This dress is yet another item I wanted to wear before it got too warm for such a heavy (visually and materially) item. I brought in a bit of lightness with the light pink headband and belt, and a sparkly cardigan that catches the light (you know the one, gray with sequin stripes, right?). 
I was so happy this day! I love a good full-skirt dress with pockets and a vintage vibe with decidedly modern touches (exposed zipper!). This has a unique neckline, too. It will be so great to wear to Christmas parties, don’t you think? We are 1/3 of the way through with the year! Gah!
