Eye See You

Eye really don't (;

Thursday evening I was given tickets to see Smith II's most recent show. I had to quickly leave work and change into something more evening appropriate. I know it's not the best OOTD photo, but it definitely was a fun one!

Thrifty Transformation No. 1

Something I've been asked a lot is to show before and afters of my thrifted clothes DIYs. I've decided to start a series called "Thrifty Transformations". I'm not sure how often I'll be able to post these, but I'll keep them coming as much as I can.

To bring this series to life, I decided to start with this unflattering tunic dress in a gorgeous mustard color. I thrifted this dress last winter for 85 cents! (I keep track of what I spend) Another reason why I bought this dress was because of the beautiful lacy floral neckline.


What I did to transform and/or make it more flattering is turn it into a high-low top that I can wear with leggings or jeans.


Look how pretty this lacy detail neckline is! It's amazing how a little cut and sewing can transform something ugly into pretty.




What else would you like me to show you?

Modern Meets Vintage

As my career progresses in the fashion industry, I am more intrigued by the "modern" looks of today. I feel like my style is slowly modernizing. This doesn't mean that my love for vintage and period dressing is ending. I'm just more interested in finding a balance of the both. 

I recently bought this cargo army green vest inspired by the military trend happening everywhere. I decided to soften the look up by wearing a lace dress underneath and nude wedges.

As for my vintage accessory, I used a straw 1950's purse with lucite clasp and chain handle.

What are your favorite current trends?



Lace Dress: Urban Outfitters - $10

I wore this out to brunch with my boyfriend. Gosh! I'm so obsessed with snapchat filters. Are you on snapchat? You can add me with: throughthealley
