sunflowers






Outfit Details:
hat - Marshalls (I removed the band and added new trim)
vintage dress - Beacon's Closet (I shortened the hem)
Sunflower heels - c/o Gentle Souls
Ben Minkoff Nikki Messenger - borrowed from Bobby
rings - Beacon's Closet and gift from Kim
faux python bracelet - c/o Karla Deras for Roman Luxe
Warby Parker Tenleys

Sunflowers remind me of the 90s; it was all about sunflowers and daisies, back then. My preferences leaned toward the former, which was made obvious by my room's decor of sunflowers and cows. Why sunflowers and cows, you ask? Because Nicole, my older sister, and I shared a room and we made a compromise. I'm not sure who chose which, but it was a dynamic combination. I started drawing cartoon cows with hearts for spots and sunflowers abound, which I sold at school for five to twenty-five cents. It was a sliding scale. I was a hustler. I guess there's really no point to this story - I just started thinking about sunflowers and went where the wind took me. Whoopsie daisy.

  4. Gorgeous dress, love the satchel too. Have you ever considered doing a Guide to Vintage Shopping post? I'd love to contribute one to your site. Perhaps a Guide to Vintage Shopping in the UK, if you were to ever visit? xx

  20. Ha! When I learned how to make origami cranes in 5th grade I sold them to neighborhood kids for 25 cents. I was a hustler too. Great minds think alike? :)

  34. Love the outfit! I think it's so cool that you buy things and then change them to your liking. Your writing made me laugh, because in the 90's I had a blue jean hat with sunflowers on it and wore it like crazy.
