Floral Footsies

I've got a secret...
I love kitschy flip-flops!
There, I said it...
Don't judge.
The Glamour Shot...
(It's hard to look glamorous in this skirt)
though it does have pockets!

Right Here, Right Now

Truer words have never been spoken...
Since beginning this blog, I have found myself trying new looks, and at times, wearing stuff just for the sake of a good post. Those days have long passed, thank goodness. However, since I've gained a bit of weight, I look through my closet and think "What was I thinking"? I do miss my little vintage numbers and can't wait to fit back into them again. Til then, I am drawn to my eclectic boho side. I am preferring basics with accessories. 
Or 'basically' just being me, right now, as I am!
This is giving me an opportunity to be more creative. To think outside the box and come up with looks that flatter without sacrificing my inner style voice. Like making these jeans (formerly my husband's) and wearing a skirt as a top. Tying up a tank and wearing a bolero. That may not land me on a best dressed list, but I kinda like it that way... Too much pressure ;)
Here's to celebrating Self, 
right now - as we are!
Happy Wednesday,
Reva :)

"Told Ya So Tuesday" / Mint

The trend: Mint for summer
The store: Goodwill
The cost: $8.00

Each year, there seems to be a color of the moment. 
This year it's mint. From mint clothing and bags, to shoes and accessories. 
Plus the top has another trend factor: Sheer.
I toughened up the shade with a little black for good measure.
I didn't get this one on 1/2 price day, but at $8.00, it's still a bargain!
SUNNIES: Vintage / SHOES: Dot's / EARRINGS: Gift / RING: costume store
TANK: Walgreen's (great staple buy, great quality! 2 for 12)

("Told Ya So Tuesday" is a regular feature at Rags2Roses
which proves that any trend can be thrifted.)

Little White Dress Alternative

SKIRT, TOP, BOOTS: thrifted , HAT: K-mart (I think) , 
CROSS: thrifted , PENDANTS: various gem shops

Happy Monday and a big HI to my new blog buddies!
The little white dress is all the rage this summer. 
To me, taking a trend and making it my own is what personal style is all about.
This is my alternative to the trend. 
Skirts allow for so many more looks compared to the dress.
I wasn't sure how the white on white would look, 
but pop me into a cowboy hat and everything seemed to flow just right!
The boots and accessories gave it the right toughness for all that white.
What trends are you making your own this summer?

Weekend Wear

Just another Saturday, another vintage tee...
This one is from the grungefather of rock & roll,
Neil Young, 1983.
Thanks, Honey!
vintage T-straps & scarf
pastel nails - not sure if I like em'...
Hope your weekend is going great!

If the Birthday fairy sent me anything this year, 
it would be these:

DIYed Sandals

I used to be the queen of thongs,aka flip-flops.
I still have many. Favorites from beachy vacations 
or just to wear around in the summer. 
Here's a neat way to take breathe new life into an otherwise plain pair of thongs!
You'll need:
an old pair of thongs ( I chose a patent with a small heel )
scissors and an old gauze scarf (I used left-over material from an old skirt)

 Cut about 24 2 to 3 in long strips at around 1" wide.
12 or so for each side. 
Tie them to the straps and knot. You can use more for a fuller 'poof', 
just make sure you have room for your toes.
LACE DRESS: Old,thrifted / CARDI: Sears / HAT: Thrifted / GOLD STATEMENT NECKLACE: UC gift shop
That's it! Easy-Peasy - and when you tire of this look, 
just change out your fabric.
( I think I'm gonna do this with some platform flippies! )
Here's to a great weekend!
