simple, as always


thrifted linen shirt, BDG cigarette jeans, vintage riding boots

Yet another casual look featuring at least one oversized item of clothing. This shirt is actually NOT the same as the oxford shirt I wore two posts back and is much lighter since it is made out of linen. It is also less oversized so I opted for leaving the buttons closed rather than open like the last time. Simple and easy, right? I've also been living in these boots which I found this past weekend at a cute little vintage store/hair salon on Telegraph, Down At Lulu's. I was really excited when I found them since I tend to have really bad luck when it comes to finding knee high vintage boots but score way more with shorter booties. I can't wait to wear them with cute dresses in the summer!

Oh and, I also listed a few things on my Chictopia for sale. I only have blazers/jackets up for now but expect a few more things in the coming days! I really need to clean out my closet.

(If any of you were wondering if I had a forehead, here it is. Excuse the eyebrows, they never see the light!)

I love the linen shirt. I have never come across a men's shirt made out of linnen before...i must lead a sheltered life!

regarding the eyebrow neglect: i couldn't agree with you more! i have similar bangs that cover down to my eyes & therefore, i've given up the need to maintain what's underneath.

my brows have passed Brook Shield circa 1980s status =/

btw, great blog!

recently, i started wearing my bangs up and no one recognizes me anymore. i guess the forehead is a little intense for people once they're used to the "bang"

christina d said...

and i will agree with lolita that my brows have reached Brook Shield's and then some...

(you, on the other hand, have nothing to worry about. i like your eyebrows, they look naturally perfect.. lucky)
