You dont have to watch Dynasty

This gorgeous dress was given to me by a former co-worker who understood my love for vintage. Apparently, she wore it in her heyday in the 80's, which seems entirely appropriate given the cut and draping. It reminds me of the amazing fashions worn on Dynasty--I feel like I should be battling it out with another shoulder pad-clad rich bitch in front of the Carrington mansion!

Style: Scouts Honor

I found this old Boy Scout shirt when I was digging through my closet and decided I really wanted to wear it with something sparkly and girly for contrast.

I remember buying this top on a thrifting adventure a few years ago, but I don't remember why. Most likely, I figured I couldn't pass up the opportunity to buy what was basically a tee shirt made out of gold sequins. Really, what self-respecting thrift-loving fashionista could? Only, I haven't really worn it. A crazy halloween costume doesn't count (I was Rick James, bitch). Neither does dress up around the house, which happens just as often...

Shopping: Virtual Vintage

I have a thing for vintage. I know I'm not alone in this. Search the blogosphere--heck, search the entire world wide web--and you're greeted by a plethora of blogs, shopping sites, articles, and message boards all dedicated to the love of vintage clothing. Lately I've been suffering through some pretty serious withdrawal as I haven't been able to spend time browsing the cluttered aisles of my favorite thrift and vintage haunts (Goodwill, I miss you! Call...
