Words written on Instagram on that day
Do you ever see people wearing something and think-
“Omg!! I loooove that!”

Wait…I have something like that!?!!”

Well, @whatjennwore posted this amazing denim dress in her stories that I LOVED!

She mentioned that she was on the search for a skirt like her dress.

I had it!! I’d thrifted it a while ago, but just had never worn it. I didn’t feel like it was “me” BUT…I loved the idea of HER styling idea. That’s the reason I bought it. I LOVED the idea of it!!

I’m late to the #nationalthriftshopday and sadly didn’t go due to Covid, but… every day should be that day in my opinion 😂❤️

I attempted to FINALLY style it to make sure. I still love the idea of it!! I would LOVE this on someone else- JENN!!!

But me? No. Yet, I’m glad I tried it!

It’s one of the things I love about fashion. Especially thrifted fashion. It’s a way to figure out what you love. What you want to experiment with and what you find is “you”. I’m completely eclectic in my ideas of what my style is, and yet…things that I LOVE on others…still don’t work on me.

And THAT IS OK!

I only hope Jenn rocks this!! Because it’s heading her way-she commented that she’s been looking for a skirt so I gave it to her! Because the other thing I love? Finding scores that make other people happy!

❤️💃

Also…Maya in this vintage dress that she’s been wearing for 5 year!!! I posted a memory in my stories of her in it 5 years ago, and I’m like 😭😭😍❤️❤️❤️❤️ Some things I just cannot get rid of! Maybe she’ll wear this as a top in her teens??! 🤣

Including outtakes and a behind the scene video (on Instagram) too, because…they are real/want to show, and also what I want to remember! ❤️🙈Blog James Perse Ribbed Tank Vintage Wrap Denim Midi Skirt Sven Plain 3 inch Clogs-1Blog James Perse Ribbed Tank Vintage Wrap Denim Midi Skirt Sven Plain 3 inch Clogs-2Blog James Perse Ribbed Tank Vintage Wrap Denim Midi Skirt Sven Plain 3 inch Clogs-3Blog James Perse Ribbed Tank Vintage Wrap Denim Midi Skirt Sven Plain 3 inch Clogs-4

Vintage dressing…

 When I was in my 20’s, I’d say about half of my wardrobe was vintage.  I would wear vintage 50’s dresses to work, and had more vintage cardigans and coats than anyone in their right mind should have.  Oh, and beautifully embroidered vintage blouses?  Yeah, I had my fair share of those too.  Over the year I got rid of most of the dresses and shirts, although I still wear most of my vintage coats.  This dress is actually a nightgown (I think?!), but it’s so easy to just throw on with flip flops and head out the door.  Plus…Maya said “Mommy, you’re a PRINCESS!” when I put it on, which is basically a win no matter what 🙂Blog Vintage Dress Sand Jewel tie Sandals-1 Blog Vintage Dress Sand Jewel tie Sandals-2Um…someone wasn’t so sure about looking at the camera haha.  Honestly, I’m always so surprised by how often she smiles at a camera on a tripod!  And, yes, she has rain boots on. Or, as Sesame Street calls them “Galoshes” Pretty much her favorite boots, and even thought it was mid 80’s, with no rain in site…she wanted to wear them.  And, obviously, I let her. 🙂Blog Vintage Dress Sand Jewel tie Sandals-3Maybe the tripod was giving her the stink eye HA! Blog Vintage Dress Sand Jewel tie Sandals-4“Tickle me??!!”  She’s obsessed with being tickled, and I’m always happy to oblige 🙂 Blog Vintage Dress Sand Jewel tie Sandals-5 Blog Vintage Dress Sand Jewel tie Sandals-6 Blog Vintage Dress Sand Jewel tie Sandals-7“Mom, LOOK, LOOK!!!  It’s a ladybug!”Blog Maya 145 Weeks Gymboree Lime Dress Galoshes-1And, then the ladybug flew! 🙂Blog Maya 145 Weeks Gymboree Lime Dress Galoshes-2“Mom, LOOK, LOOK ‘Cars coming!!'”  Yes, I’m always saying that to her, so she’s always pointing them out to me.  Right after, she started counting them.  “One…two….three…”  The best is when we are IN the car driving down the street.  “MOM!  Car’s coming!!”  🙂Blog Maya 145 Weeks Gymboree Lime Dress Galoshes-3Blog Maya 145 Weeks Gymboree Lime Dress Galoshes-4I don’t even know what was going on here, and I tried thinking up something funny to go along with this, but…I drew a blank.  It’s funny enough on it’s own though!  I welcome any captions 🙂Blog Maya 145 Weeks Gymboree Lime Dress Galoshes-5On me…
