thank you, christina.

 vest: c/o Vintage Urban Renewal / lace top, maxi skirt: Belk / teal tank: Forever 21 / wedge boots: c/o Blowfish Shoes / bracelets: c/o PoshLocket and Salvage West 

if the recent trends of neon bright colors and the oversized sweaters and big hair aren't  bringing you back to the 80's, well then, my friend, i'm bringing it right up to you and your computer screen with this denim vest - popped collar and all. and i totally stole this look right from Miss Christina Aguilera herself (September 2012 Lucky magazine), the whole idea of combining unexpected contrasted textures. i have already been obsessed with that fashion concept for forever (um, since the 80's probably) but she just set it in stone for me when i saw her photo shoot. 

so thank you Christina, you have done more than grace the world with your big voice and chest. you opened my eyes to the possibilities of denim and black lace, and i am forever grateful. 

much love.
{happy wednesday, friend.}

  1. Seeing your gorgeous long hair makes me really miss the 8+ inches I just cut off :(

    You may have changed it a while ago and I never noticed but I like your new blog layout.
