I love the warm weather; it's going away for a while, but in the meantime, my t-shirt collection and cut off shorts can come out to play. This tee is actually a new addition; it was $3 at Gabes and fits like a dream.

I really love incorporating blatant modern pieces with vintage garments. Not only just mixing the two in a surreal juxtaposition but adding some quirky elements to up the freak factor. I feel like the culmination of all these elements represent the complexity that is me, and I love blogging for the fact that it documents my style development.

I wore this out to see 21 Jump Street. Originally, I wanted to wear this sweater with my purple heart Authentics, but the colors did not go as well as I thought they would. So to solve the shoe crisis, I pulled these brogues out and voila- matching laces and oxford.
21 Jump Street is freeking hysterical, really funny, and not overly gross. It's also an interesting view for the indoctrination of hipster into today's youth. Weirdly, it is pushed in a movie that is so not intended for young viewers, but they will inevitably watch- as they should because it is hilarious. Maybe it's just the filmmakers' way of showing they are in touch with the hip trends of today. Nonetheless, it is an interesting mainstream interpretation of alternative culture.

I wish I would have bookmarked the website that gave me the inspiration to add the button down to this outfit. I think it was a Tumblr that documented women's styles that had a masculine touch.
The whole idea of fashion blurring lines between gender roles is so fascinating, brimming with subversive potential. Seen mostly in high fashion and alternative cultures like punk and grunge, it contributes feminism's voice through individuals' expression of style.

Some great finds I passed on while out at the Peach St. Salvation Army. I took these with my Galaxy Nexus S. It has a nice camera and I like using it. Post-photos, I checked and it has settings and white balance options. Not a bad point and shoot replacement.

This is everything I bought during my thrift shopping date. Not too much, but that's ok- no guilt today! Plus, I am also a little unsure of how my SS12 wardrobe is going to shape up so I wasn't looking for anything specific.I didn't have one of those transcendent trips that yields an incredible gem, but I'm happy with my new stuff. Everything was purchased at the two Salvation Army stores in Erie.
|Early 80s Vintage blouse. This is a little different for me but I like the print and the|
colors- two things that are sorely lacking from my spring wardrobe. I figure I will
wear it at least a couple times. Well worth the $1.50

I think it's safe to say that I love this jacket. I got it a while back and maybe wore it once, but now it is better suited to my current style. I can see myself wearing it with a tight sweater, or bigger polka dots. It reminds me of a bright sunny 50s high school chick and makes me wish for a circle skirt.
