Girly Gritty Inspiration

 Busy combing the internet for inspiring editorials. I'm feeling girly, per usual but with a gritty, torn up twist here and there.

Cool indie online publication with a focus on DIY and Vintage. Easy direct links to web sites that are nifty but can be a pain when accidentally clicked. 

Teen Vogue:

 "The New Romantics" an old favorite prom editorial. Reminds me of a much more romanticized version on my life at 17.

No Subject or Point

Nasty Gal Wants it All

I had a bit of a panic of "like this, like that... ohhh and that" over at Nasty Gal. Its a uber trendy but still good. Wichy, 90's vibes, sheer things, doll dresses, and asymmetrical hems. I'm eating that stuff up.

Shining in Crochet

I had a really lovely weekend/ early week with my family in town for my graduation. We ate same great eats (Italian, Indian, Sandwiches), caught up, and spent a bit of time at the beach. I will share some pictures of my cool grad dress when my dad emails them, but all I have for you now is what I wore to unwind with friends last night after the busy few days.

The Lace Flare

About a year ago when I first saw the black lace flares from Bona Drag featured on fashiontoast, I fell into a sort of style love spell. I had a major if only moment. If only I could justify such a splurge. When a similar pair arrived on the Free People site for a similarly out of reach price I fell again for their glory. The other day on a jaunt to Salvation Army, a trip even out of my current budget, I found a bit of glory with a green $5.00 price tag stapled to the waistband. Oh my lace flares! True they were lined with a terrible nylon lining but that was an easy fix. Snip, snip, et voila!
Although the "tabacco" colored ones from Free People are still tempting...
