    Love the moody, drapy, dark thing going on in #1. This feels very noir to me.

    And the whole photo in #3 is straight out of A movie. Love the shopping cart!

    You look super happy in that utility jacket. Good buy for you, seams or no. 

  • Lantana replied 5 years ago

    Oooh, your flea market finds!
    And I love these moody mood photos.

  • replied 5 years ago

    Yes, I see the happiness in the jacket too :)

    You are the "cool girl" that everyone wants to be.

    Diana - yay! hope this means I am getting closer to my aspirational style. 

    Suz and Ceit - It was a risk, and I had to hold my breath cutting into the lining, but this time it paid off!

    Lantana - I go to the flea market way less these days but, when I do, I get stuff that works a lot harder for me. I feel like I used to get big bags of stuff that I would purge too quickly. 

    Joy - that is so sweet! I often feel too anxious and dorky to be cool, but at least I can take a cool pic sometimes. :)

    I like the shorts with the army jacket a lot on you. The other outfits are nice and noir too, but on some of the pictures it is hard to tell. Even the photos are noir hahaha.

    Great outfits!  I think #2 is perfect summer fun.  I like your take on #3 too, and the outfit looks really nice.

    I too am a thrifter and I too tend to bring home too much stuff. I absolutely love the army jacket. I know what you mean about being scary cutting into something - but if it doesn't work what have you lost if you weren't going to wear it the other way?

    Total cuteness!  Rae, as always, you look amazing!
