Survive til the Night

And you know she will be waiting there; And you’ll find her somehow, you swear
Somewhere tonight you run sad and free; Until all you can see is the night

Two things I love are vintage and wearing black. I tend to snap up any sheer black clothing I find in my size. I am constantly searching for vintage for my shop and sometimes I keep a piece when I just can’t resist. This button up top is a sweet 90’s dream. It looks really great over bralettes like the one I am wearing (found here.)


Speaking of bralettes, I never want to wear underwire again. I’m not saying I won’t. I just don’t want to currently. I’ve been so on the go lately, that comfort is key. And luckily, there are tons of super cute bralettes available right now.

I feel like this photo set looks like the cover to my goth country album. Maybe it is. 2017 is already feeling completely surreal, so you never know what could happen. I was actually driving around Newport beach when we saw this ice shop and decided to snap a few shots. It really said sleepy beach town, which isn’t generally my aesthetic, but I loved it.

Buttoned Up

I seem to have two moods: all black everything and eccentric 80’s princess. I tend to wear a lot of black in the Winter and then throw on a bright lip and fun jewelry. Black is a timeless color for your wardrobe but it’s also fun to focus on the styling. You can keep it understated like I did today, or really play up color in your makeup and accessories.

This vintage shirt dress was such a dream find. There are really lovely details that keep it from being too simple. The collar and buttons are satin. The shoulders have just a touch of volume to make the sleeves pop. It’s also pretty sheer which is great because it’s modestly cut. I wore it with a short slip to make it a little sexier. It’s cut away from the body so it drapes perfectly. It’s so hard to find shirt dresses in my size, especially because I carry a lot of weight in my lower abdomen and hips so they usually never fit me right. To keep it from being boring, I played with textures. The jacket is a mesh moto jacket from asos (found here.) The suede mules are also from asos (similar here) and are pretty easy to walk in since they have a shorter block heel. Bless retailers for finally starting to carry fashionable wide width shoes in a variety of styles. I have felt so left out of owning beautiful shoes because they never fit my fat feet! I plan on doing a post with my favorite wide fit options soon.

I love to see plus size women in drapey cuts. We’ve been told for so long to belt everything, that we need to define our waist. But I say no! Wear whatever you want, it doesn’t need to allude to an hourglass shape. Fat girls can have fun with silhouettes too!

I also threw on these vintage mod earrings I just scored. They’re two toned and really subtle but definitely nod to the 60’s. I love a bright lip, especially when the rest of my outfit is understated. This bright pink shade is called Royal Raspberry and it’s less than $15 at Sephora.

It’s less than 2 weeks until we make the big move to LA. I am really anxious about it and know that everything is about to change in a major way.

We are trying to take in our favorite places in Vegas before we go. Today we went to appreciate some of the wall art we love and eat Po’ Boys from Zydeco downtown.
