Vintage VS Indie

There's a real difference, at least in my mind there is.

I am leaning more towards buying vintage or retro wear. The only reason I am not fully on board for vintage is because I think that I don't fit the typical vintage store sizes. Those tiny people whom I hate and love at the same time.

Indie however, is a trend that will pass eventually, so if I combine indie/vintage/retro then I think I'll be in good standing.

Wednesday April 27

Feeling Inspired?
I sure am.
Who or what are you inspired by?
I'm especially inspired by a new blog I'm following, called Clothes Horse.
Link in the doobly doo.

One of these days I'll figure a way to take a picture of my WHOLE outfit. Then you'll be impressed. :-)
I have a wonderful plan where I'm going to take all of my regular spending money and pile it up until I have enough to go on a shopping spree and buy cool Indie/vintage clothing... or what ever sparkly thing catches my eye ;-)

What the freak?
that's amazing, I tried to follow one of my new fav. bloggers, and the comp was like "sorry, that person has reached their max number of followers (5000... or 50000... idk) please try back later"



luckily, I don't have to worry about this issue. :-D

Do you remember back in the day when colored pants were cool?
that was about 6 months ago, and I wanted a pair SOOO bad.
I also wanted skinny jeans.
Thank GOODNESS I didn't buy either of those trends.
I'm not a trend person by nature, but somethings just hit me over the head.

this new Indie thing is really grabbing me like something I could do. I am going to wait a little while though, see if it's really me or if it's the world beguiling me... and while I wait, I'll save up money, cause honey if this is the real thing, then I'm going on a shopping spree!!!

April 19th

Today is no big day, to be sure, but I am feeling inspired.
I got some new makeup yesterday, and I love experimenting with that, so when I got dressed after yoga (that's right, I've started a yoga routine) I decided to pair some fun things.

The new makeup: Wet N Wild, Perfect Pair Eye Wand.
That's an eyeliner at one end, and a complimenting eye shadow at the other, they're really nice and creamy.
I got two kinds, Smoke/Lilac and Java/Champagne.
They're really pretty and I'm wearing the Java/Champagne one right now. But I totally can't wait to try out the Lilac, it looks so pretty, and the eyeshadow is subtle, which is important to me because I don't want to look TOO done-up.

To top it all of, I'm wearing Maybelline's Great Lash "Very Black" mascara. I've tried other brands, and ones that claim to be "non-clumping" or "extra volume" but none of them have worked as well as Maybelline.

What products have you guys found to work?

Yesterday I cleaned out my closet, and that always brings to the front old clothes that I've forgotten about... allow me to demonstrate:

A bright pink shirt with good detail

long sleved shirt adds warmth and style

All in all, plus a pair of wide leg dark wash jeans, that's my outfit for today. Fun but warm and comfortable.
More updates to come
