Road Trip

Bobby, Miku, Lacy, Vester and I are embarking on our road trip, in just a few hours. Here's one more outfit post, before we hit the road. I'll try and find an internet source, along the way...I have lots of pictures to share!




I have always loved robin's egg blue, especially paired with mustard or gold. I also love that in my grandma's high school photo, she is wearing a very similar little cardigan. Shades of her age; I love how style can be somewhat cyclical. The wrap dress, on the other hand, is from my mom's teen era.


Flowers, for my rat's nest. I think the term "rat's nest" is most appropriate, not only for the mess but for the fact that every rat I've ever known has loved to curl up on my shoulder, nestled in my hair.


I was so excited to find these shoes! It's a rarity to find any great vintage shoes in a size nine. All of the best shoes are super tiny.

Outfit Details:
Vintage 50s Sweater - thrifted
Vintage 70s Wrap Dress - thrifted
Belt - from my mom's consignment shop
Navy Tights - H&M
Vintage Shoes - thrifted
Hair Flowers - handmade clip, by me...it involved a lot of tedious hand sewing.


While I'm excited for the trip and subsequent family/friend time, I do wish I would have packed in advance, so I could have slept. Instead, I'm still packing last minute things and going on no sleep. Poor Bobby; I always sleep through our trips!

  13. Keiko! I used to follow you on your website/lj (My username was 2to1, i doubt you remember haha. I think you were a hot_fashion alum maybe?!) but lost track over the years. I was just browsing Lucky and saw your Reebok contest photo and knew something about your name and face was familiar! Shit girl! congrats!
