A week of almost all secondhand clothes





 Happy weekend everyone!  February is almost over and you know what? I cannot complain. It is normally such a cold month for us but not this year, this year it was down right enjoyable.  I've been having a lot of fun with my outfits lately and trying to play with some different silhouettes rather than my usual skinny jeans and boots.  These are the wide leg cords that my husband bought for me from Forever21 in Anchorage - I love these pants and for some reason they are my most compliment garment. People seem to really like wide leg cords!  I wore it with a teddy bomber from Zara I found at the thrift store, my tall Seychelles boots from 2013 that are still going strong and a vintage Pendleton bag. Aside from the pants, everything is second hand.   Actually, the whole week of outfits is comprised of completely second hand items from either ebay or the thrift store - aside from these pants. I almost never shop in retail stores these days and have tried to go completely second hand with my closet.  Seeing as I live in the literal middle of nowhere at the end of the road, that is not too bad! 




 I got new boots and I am so in love, I might never wear a different pair again. (Who am I kidding, I am not boot monogamous.)  They are tall Rick Owens that I found for a stupid low price on ebay, like 2% of the original retail price. I love how awkward and hoof like they are and I really enjoy the height. I go from 5'2 to 5'7 in these boots and whooooa, what a rush of power!  I need to be careful or my head might hit the top of the door frame! I can see the middle cabinet now!  I can look people level in the eye. Bwwahhhaaa!  I wore a light purple lip here and really liked it.




 This lipstick is very dark purple that looks black in photos! I've always wanted to wear black but felt like such a poser but after seeing these pictures, I'm gonna do it, I love it. I liked the dark lip with more of a folklore outfit, the contrast was fun.




 My husband and I celebrated our anniversary and I wore the same dress as last year, this Isabel Marant for H&M dress. I loved that collection so much and have slowly collected items from it as the resellers have chilled the freak out on ebay.  This is my fancy dress and I always enjoy breaking it out. It's silk with the panels wrapped around and is a super cool pattern that does not translate to photographs. To be honest, I am shocked at how nice it is, I wish H&M did this with more of their collaborations.


 Why do I have gray jeans, they are a betrayal of my soul. Ugh, I like them so much less than black jeans.  This might have been an ok outfit but they gray jeans bug me and I don't like how the RO cardigan laid, it made the look a bit awkward.





 Love this, layered the same coat from the last outfit under my RO coat with the deep hood and loved it.  The top is a Helmut Lang wrap one I've had for years and is a staple of my outfits.  The earrings are vintage silver ones and I love how big they are but not ridiculously heavy at the same time. 



 The same RO dress that I wore as a tunic last week but as a dress this time.  I layered an old BCBG  coat over a cardigan and I really liked the whole look.  My hair would not cooperate though.


 Pink wedges!  This outfit featured the  deep burgundy coat, the black top and skirt so I felt a pink shoes would be fun. It was.


 The advice I got on instagram was to strike a power pose to show of the wide leg crops, thus, my best Price George power stance! Hashtag accidental black adder.....





I think I hit peak outfit here, time to hang things up and go home, it will only go down from here. I LOVE this outfit, the all saints soviet coat is one I've lusted over for years and I am really excited I found it.  It is so swooshy! I've bought two other coats at the thrift stores over the years trying to dupe this coat and nothing comes close. (Although I do like my other two green coats and wear them quite a bit.)  I wore a gray lip with a sparkly overcoat ( Annastia Beverly Hills' Griffin lip stick with Too Faced's liquid lip sparkly topper...I don't remember the name, I'm sorry!)and it looked like a zombie ate a glitter bomb and went to prom, it was amazing.  It did not show up well in photos.  I am bummed.

  1. As usual I love all your outfits but I just wanted to say that the white and tan striped scarf over the camel coat is SO cute! It reminds me of icing on a gingerbread house!

  2. Okay, the outfit with the floral print dress and the silver earrings – what is that witchery of the peacock feather!? It keeps appearing and disappearing and am I nuts or is there really a feather floating around your dress???

    I feel like the only woman of the season without a floor length camel coat. Yours is fabulous (like it wouldn't be?) and the ru-veal of that Marant dress is amazing. I know your husband liked that one too, am I right? Also, I'm turning your blog into my dose of Drag Race since I no longer have time for terrible TV shows like that. I keep hearing Ru doing voice overs in my head as I scroll through each photo...

    And holy cow at that last photo :O The coat. The pose. The styling. The gal. You're killing it.

    xoxo

    1. It is a peacock feather! The skirt is so floaty that the feather dissapears into the folds every time I walk. :) you are too kind, I've really enjoyed your posts - they're fun to read and your outfits are cute. (I feel very inspired by your boots!)
