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
Wedges: Super Old
1950's purse: thrifted - $1.50

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

Skulls on Skulls

The humidity in Dallas is making the summer heat even more unbearable than usual. I really dread wearing more than one layer, so it's just all sun dresses at this point. I try to stand out by picking ones with unusual prints.

I found this cotton blend dress on the clearance rack at Hot Topic. I thought the skull on the vibrant rose print was fun. The back has a crocheted skull as well.

I wore this outfit while taking my cousin who was visiting from Chicago to my favorite Dallas spots. It was a super hot day! The dress kept me fairly cool, but I still got a little sunburnt. 

Sunglasses: Gifted
Dress: Hot Topic $1
Shoes: Zara $98

How do you try to stay stylish in the summer heat?

Summer Days

As the days get hotter, it gets a bit more challenging to find fun summer activities to do. All the rain we've had has done nothing but make Dallas more humid and full of mosquitos. Gross!

It seems like fun indoor activities are getting harder to find. Well not necessarily getting hard to find. It's just how many times can you go to the movies or your favorite store without it getting old. 

One of my favorite things to do to beat the heat is to head out to the Dallas Museum of Art. It's always free minus some exhibits. I love going there not only because of the art, but also the fact that I never get to finish seeing everything. Another reason I love going there is that it's so close to Klyde Warren Park and food trucks. A snow cone from Mad Grill is a total must!

As for what I wore, I kept it comfortable with a jersey circle skirt and a jersey/chiffon peter pan collared tee shirt.

Sunglasses - Francesca's, $5
Tee - Urban Outfitters, $20
Skirt - Cotton On, $10
Shoes - Forever 21, $13

What's your favorite way to beat the summer heat?

Black on Black

Thought I'd share a quick/short post on what I wore to the Fashion Scoop Daily launch party the other night.

I wore a loose shift dress with a tie collar that I found last week at the thrift store. I promise to post that thrift haul soon! I paired it with my vintage slingback Ferragamo pumps and recently thrifted Chanel bag for a late 60's/designer chic vibe. Glad this outfit only cost me around $17.

Sunglasses - Francesca's, $5
Dress - Urban Outfitters Brand via Thrifted, $10
Purse - Chanel via Thrifted, $1
Shoes - Ferragamo via Thrifted, $6

I was happy to be able to celebrate the launch of Fashion Scoop Daily's new website and help out with the fashion presentation. They are some of the sweetest and most dapper men in Dallas. Be sure to check out the new website!

I will say the most eventful part of the night was getting stuck in a small elevator with 7 models, a makeup artist, and a fellow wardrobe stylist for half an hour! Thank you to the Dallas Fire Department for saving us!

Here I am at the terrace of The Joule after that fiasco! Such a beautiful view!
