Summer of Love V2

I'm a technological muther loving genius!
Well not really. Mostly I just went into safe mode and system restored from about a week before this who shit storm occurred. My virus program brought me back a (mostly) clean bill of health, though I'm still a little wary over then entire state of my poor computer.
But we're good to go on blogging!

I'd like to do another little list today, since you all seemed to adore the DIY spike list from last week. And for those of you waiting on outfit/thrift posts, do not despair. Two should be up by tomorrow nightish. Maybe friday nightish. Depending on how the day goes. 
I've been noticing over the past three weeks or so that I've started to regress. 
I'm dressing the way I did in 7th grade.
Now, take note. I didn't dress like other 7th grade kids in my class. Maybe that's why everyone thought I was weird. I wore bell sleeve gauze shirts with embroidered butterflies, and long skirts down to my ankles.
And clogs.
So many clogs.
Samantha and I actually met in 7th grade, and she said the first time she saw me, she thought I was a hippie. Like one from a convent. No joke.
I stopped dressing like that for a long time, and went through my all black phase. Then I transitioned into my rockabilly phase. Now I just look like a pint-sized indie ragamuffin. So to kick off Summer (because let's face it it's 80 degrees outside) I wanted to do a little quickie post about new styles, prints, cuts, flares, and what nots that are all a part of my new summer attire. 

1: Tie dye

I don't care what it is, where I get it from, or how bad of a shape it's in. Over the past couple months, I've been tie dye crazy. I sort of live in that red tie dye dress I got from Ross a month ago. I have a special little gem to share with you in my next thrift post, so check that out whenever I get my crap together. Back to the tie dye. I just cannot even help it. And I am REALLY digging it over the black. I want this dress so freaking bad.

2: Turban scarf Headbands

I love what this blogger did with this gorgeous yellow+her peachy coral. Those two colors sing to me. ANYWHO. I know I've preached the turban headband a bunch to you guys. But I have been wearing the crap out of mine all week. It's perfect for when your hair is just not cooperating.

3: Jewelry from the Earth

I'm in love. Such deep, passionate love.
I believe these beautiful pieces are from Unearthen.
Which means they probably cost about 100-300 dollars.
A piece.
Which means that maybe I should start looking on eBay for gorgeous stuff like this. I can't even explain how much I want these though. They are so freaking mystifying. 

4: Embroidered Tops

Say what you want. Tell me I'm hunting for clothes in my grandmother's closet. I can take it. (Because it's true)
I LOVE. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE. This stitching. I have a top similar that I got at Macy's for like, 10 dollars (mostly because it was on psycho sale) that I wore today that is kinda sorta like this. I still love actual floral prints, don't get me wrong. But the embroidery is just so cute. (Btw, this top is actually on sale on the website that I gave photo credit to. $15 bucks! One of you better snag it before I have the money to.)

5: Round Sunglasses

 I've been a big sunglasses girl since forever. I have a semi-round face, and huge sunglasses really help to even it out. I never thought much of circle sunglasses though. They always just reminded me too much of packaged hippie costumes from party city. But recently, I've been thinking (a dangerous pastime) about how cute these could look with some denim shorts and a tunic top. 

That's all the listing for now! I'm doing one more post tonight on something which is pretty important to me, and then maybe later if I have time, I'm doing a sort of Compare and Save, eBay to designer garb post. Leave comments with a something you love, whether it be designer or otherwise, and I'll try to eBay find it for nice and cheap!

As always, love completely:

  1. The glasses remind me of Willy Wonka, Johnny Depp version :D The shape makes me look with a Wasp.

  2. I am also loving all of these things. I especially love the headband.
