H&M sweater. Phamous shorts via Pixie Market. Jeffrey Campbell Biz Belted Booties. Marc Jacobs sunglasses. Vintage belt, necklace and watches

These fuzzy leopard print shorts from Pixie Market and this hole-y sweater from H&M are my new favorite wardrobe additions.  Since the shorts are warm and fuzzy, I’ve convinced myself that they will be suitable for winter wear (with tights) and look forward to pairing them with an oversized blazer and boots.

Yesterday Mel and I went to the Long Beach Flea Market, and while it isn’t as large as the Rose Bowl one, I still had fun scouring cases of antique jewelry and digging through piles of watches.  I ended up buying the three vintage watches above for a total of $8.  Best spent money since I bought my ‘Chanel’ necklace last weekend at the Rose Bowl for $5.  Loves it.

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!  xo, Becs

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits.
The rebels.
The troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
And while some may see them as the crazy ones,
We see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think
they can change the world,
Are the ones who do.”

Zara blazer. Rampage lace top. Urban Outfitters bandeau, belt and shoes. Express shorts. Topshop earrings

Yes, LA has the terrible traffic, but when it’s still 70 degree something weather in November, I can’t complain (reason I’m wearing these shorts).  I’m glad I never got rid of this 8+ year old lace number from Rampage because it has come in handy for layering things over and underneath it.

Picked up the oversized blazer (with shoulder pads – Score!), necklace and fringe boots at the Rose Bowl Flea Market this past weekend.  The blazer is actually from We Move Vintage (new LA online vintage boutique) and joins my ever-growing collection of black blazers.  Not to mention I’m eagerly anticipating the arrival of this gem from Nasty Gal Vintage.

Rose Bowl Flea Market

Usually I’d wish you all a Happy Hump Day but just attempted to search for another term and discovered that some people refer to it as ‘the week’s belly button’.  So happy ‘the week’s bellybutton’!  Just doesn’t sound the same… xoxo

And let me stay here for a while

Urban Outfitters dress worn as top & shorts. Vintage necklace and Cole Haan shoes. Fishnet thigh high stockings from costume store

I’m now convinced that thigh high stockings elongate your legs.  I’ll be flea marketing this weekend at the Rose Bowl and hope to find some good stuff. Have a fabulous weekend!

Lady Gagas

Halloween 09

The idea to be Lady GaGa was a last minute decision based on what I already had in my closet.  With just the blonde wig and a cheap pair of sunglasses to buy, I wore my H&M jacket, Silence & Noise zipper bodysuit via Urban Outfitters, Jeffrey Campbell Carry OTK boots and borrowed Mel’s Topshop leopard-print sequin shorts and Bebe blue fishnet stockings.

We went out in West Hollywood on Halloween night which was pure craziness.  My fav costume was this dude dressed as Falcor (the luck dragon) from The Never Ending Story.  Hilarity ensued when people started yelling lines from the movie after realizing it was Falcor.

I’m glad all it took was the blonde wig, sunglasses and a part of my ass to hang out of the hotpants for people to realize who I was dressed as.  Got a kick out of people wanting to take a photo with me just because it was ‘Lady GaGa.’

As always, thanks for reading!  I’m behind on getting back to comments but promise to return the favor this week. xo

“When in doubt, wear red.” – Bill Blass

Regardless of having a stacked wardrobe, I always find myself gravitating toward some variation of this look.  I guess you can say the combination of a biker jacket, skinny pants and combat boots makes me feel the most comfortable in my own skin.

Hope you all have a happy Sunday Funday!
