Outfit August, day 10: Frida-esque

I wasn’t consciously inspired by Frida Kahlo when I put together this outfit, but many of my friends commented that it looks like a tribute to her. I’ll take it!

#FFFaceoff part 2: The dark ombre floral circus

Big Thrifty OOTD #7: the red dress again

It can go vaguely-flapperish-ly glam, but did you know it can also go full-out, GFLA-esque late ’90s/early ’00s?

Dress: The Big Thrifty, boots: Target, purse: thrifted, bandana: acquired at some point during high school, spike wristband: Hot Topic, studded wristband: PacSun, bangles: Deb, ball chain necklace: stolen from a windowshade back in the day, padlock necklace: taken off of a suitcase, heart-shaped mood necklace: Claire’s (this one is relatively new, but it’s a replacement for a similar one I had and loved in high school!), earrings: Claire’s, ring: from a seaside gift shop in like 1996

Big Thrifty OOTD #6: Red ruffles and cherries

This outfit combines pieces from both this year’s and last year’s Big Thrifty! I got the red ruffle tube top last year (you can also see it here), and the cherry bolero this year. Both are originally from Torrid, as is the skirt.

Skirt, top, and bolero: see above, shoes: Naot, hair flower: Claire’s, spike wristbands: Hot Topic, necklace and earrings: So Good

The whole pin-up/rockabilly look is pretty different from what I usually wear, but I like it! That’s one of the things I love about the Big Thrifty–it’s much easier to experiment with new styles and things you might not normally wear when they’re cheap and you can try them on in person.

Big thrifty OOTD #3: Red dress

Eeep, I’m so behind on outfit posts! I have so many pictures I’ve taken and just haven’t edited and uploaded yet.

This is a dress I got at the Big Thrifty, and wore to Three Big Fat Voices. It’s the perfect summer dress–light and comfortable and also glamorous. I want to wear it all the time.

Dress: The Big Thrifty, sandals: Naot, rose bangle: H&M, other bangles: Torrid and Deb, necklace: Claire’s, earrings: Artifaktori, fascinator: Forever 21, sequined jacket: Kohl’s

Wednesday Fa(t)shion Inspirations, 11/28/12

These jeans. LOVE. I remember when huge flares were a thing in the late ’90s, and I really hope they come back so that plus size stores will start making them. I want a pair so badly.
