I love a good throwback as much as the next ‘Gram-er, so when my friend asked me to model some vintage athletic gear, I was all in!
If O-town tour tees and old school Starter jackets make you nostalgic too, stop by the Retro Jones 513 booth at the City Flea Holiday Market this Saturday from 5-10pm, and stay for the Light Up OTR festivities.
See you there!

There are sweaters and then there are sweaters. I enjoy a good cuddle, so for me, the cozier the better. After pulling this vintage mohair sweater for a photo shoot months ago, I was innocently browsing at Hi-Bred when I just happened to see it was still available. It was fate, y’all.
I wore it with a satin skirt in the same creamy shade, vintage flower earrings, and caramel colored boots and tried to refrain from hugging myself all day. However, I was petted by several people. At work.
If you happen to have any fuzzy/pretty/badass vintage of your own, you should definitely check out Cincy Chic’s Eco-Chic Fashion Show next week. I’ll be there as part of a blogger panel voting on the best eco-chic look (anything from eco-friendly fabrics to vintage finds) and the winner will receive a $500 prize pack!

Inspired by the ‘70s vibe on the runways, I added yet another vintage leather pencil skirt to my already gratuitous collection of vintage leather pencil skirts. Paired with a simple black turtleneck, black boots, and gold-accented accessories, this combination has #bossbitch written all over it.

I bought this vintage matador skirt from NVISION after seeing it at a fashion show and immediately falling in Fashion Love. You know that love-at-first-sight feeling you get when you see a dress/skirt/top that seems like it was made with you in mind? Yeah, it was like that.

There comes a time in every woman’s life when she has to make a difficult choice. A choice that may be controversial, a choice that not everyone will agree with or understand–but as Cher Horowitz once said, it’s a personal choice every woman has got to make for herself:
The choice to wear clear heels.
Vintage lucite heels from Atomic Number 10
Now see, I know what you’re thinking. But hear me out: they’re VINTAGE clear heels, not stripper clear heels. The simple mule styling and relatively low stiletto heel keep them from being too vampy, and really, how can you say no to shoes that make you look like you’re walking on air?
I choose my choice! My old Crystal Barbie would be proud.
