Polka-dots have been in my wardrobe since I was a little girl. It’s a pattern that never ages, and you always look happier in them. Marketplaces, festivals, and brunches are places I would recommend wearing this cut. Keep scrolling to see more images of how I styled this dress!
Another combination of contemporary and vintage that’s perfect for the beach. This stretch-runch top and vintage shorts are the perfect pieces to layer with a swimsuit.
There is so much confusion as to what the word “tunic” actually describes. It started in the Roman Empire in the 3rd century BC. A Roman tunic was used as an under garment for a toga or just a long shirt for the lower classes. The word evolved with history, and it ended up describing a shirt, layering piece, and a dress. Different class identifications were associated with it as civilizations came and went.
Sand in my denim
Here is a modern twist on a ’50-’60’s beach look:

Contrasting patterns are like eye-candy when it comes to outfits. It adds and eclectic and curious element to a look, and it leaves people staring (in a good way). There are some rules to follow when putting the ensemble together.
Capturing the extreme sun of August in a comfortable way is done by wearing earth tones. Black certainly does the trick, but that can be too intense. Tan and brown tones are just dark enough the keep you at a comfortable temperature and create an upscale day to night look.
Stitches of the past
When people hear the word “vintage”, there are thoughts that link to it. People often think of hipsters or old musty clothing. I wear vintage 4 out of the 7 days of the week, and most of my outfits lean toward the modern look. It’s not about the individual piece, it’s how you style it.
Wearing a head-to-toe look from your favorite brand or store always gives you an extra boost of confidence. This white ensemble is from my favorite store, Mercy Vintage in Oakland, CA.
Shoulder Pad Wonders
Working in the fashion industry calls for you to have a staple. Grace Coddington has her gorgeous red hair, Anna Wintour’s black sunglasses will never be forgotten, and Danielle Bernstein’s minimalist yet intricate vibe is copied world wide. When I realized mine is a shoulder-padded blazer paired with sunnies, I couldn’t have been happier.
July 5th Task: Getting Un-kissed by the Sun
After a day like the 4th of July, I am always the one who looks like a lobster. I either forget to reapply my SPF or don’t bother to put it on…I don’t recommend. I want to share my post-sunburn fashion regimen with you!
Couture talks, you listen.
