A Modern x Vintage Hangout

We are back! It’s the new year, a year 3 if you are like me and like to follow numerology. Also hibernation season is almost over for myself— meaning a new school semester *heavy sigh*. But I am very, very excited to be present on Loon Look today to produce a new blog post. As I write this I am listening to the Sims 3 soundtrack and it really is bringing me back to the days where I would sit in my home office for 8 hours channeling my inner interior designer. Basically, it’s grade A focusing music, so this should be a good read (no pressure though).

For this look I really wanted to bring both vintage and modern pieces together. The sort of contrast between them really fit quite nicely. After all, the key to styling vintage pieces is incorporating something modern. This embroidered Cabi jacket was picked out from a local thrift shop. Quickly while we are on the topic of thrifting, if you are a reoccurring reader you would know that about a good chunk of my wardrobe is thrifted. I can always count on thrifting for finding unique or even basic pieces. But yes, I’m currently loving this new jacket and I will not remove the shoulder pads. Ever. That weirdly used to be a thing for people my age… For the modern take on this look, I paired the jacket with a relaxed jogger pant as well as a graphic tee. I guess we could argue that the graphic tee is sort of a vintage modern tee. Which is then, best of both worlds. The joggers were a recent buy and I have been loving how versatile they can be. And lastly, oh my dear sock boots. My loves. They complete the look. Major cool girl vibes is maybe what we can summarize this look to be. Photo time now, enjoy enjooyy.

Houston Humidity Hehe

Ah yes, part 2 of the H-town series is here! Please appreciate the fine alliteration in the title. I’m really proud of it actually. As you soon will tell, the humidity did its job very well during my time visiting. I am Monica on Friends when her hair is a frizzy mess and she’s yelling, “It’s the humidity!!!” But now it’s October and I don’t have anything to blame my messy hair on rather than my low maintenance attitude towards hair care. Once again, me and Ava went awf! We did this shoot after thrifting at Buffalo Exchange. Which I will proudly state that the Houston location is soooo good. I snagged a silk Rag & Bone cropped blouse, dope silk (we love silk on this blog) wide leg pants, and the bag + sunnies from this shoot.

About the bag… I swear the early 2000’s coming back into fashion is actually lovely. I mostly just love being reminded that I had similar bags when I was 7 years old. I would also like to mention that the 80’s style teaming up with the 00’s is pretty great to see too. It’s a very bold time in fashion right now. Back to the bag story though, there were two I was debating on getting at Buffalo Exchange. It was between a beaded shoulder bag or a clear, translucent purse. I’ve seen them both around before, a.k.a on other style blogger’s Instagram’s. Unsurprisingly, the beaded bag won. Sad news though, it started to fall apart after some serious dancing at Lollapalooza. At least it (and I) were having fun. Onto the cat eye tortoise sunglasses……. nothing really to say, it’s a pure essential. The green floral dress was originally purchased for a vacation last fall, but I had thoughts of styling it with my favorite f*cking shoes. The iconic Nike City Huarache trainers that I actually never take off my feet! Ohp, and I borrowed my brother’s Polo Ralph Lauren socks, ya know, to add a special touch. Okie…. photo time.
