Spanish Castle Magic

So, I thrifted at a local store here, Turnstyles in Overland Park, Kansas, and it was such a great experience. This post will not be long, and I was very apprehensive about posting pics since having my second child, Bella, but she’s 9 months now and I figured I may as well show off my outfit combinations at some point.

It’s a Man’s World

Happy New Year, loves! And welcome to a new year of fashion and style posts by yours truly. I’m currently trying to catch up on sleep, but seeing as though I am failing in that department right now, I figured I could come up with a post about one of my favorite topics: menswear. I am not a stranger to using men’s clothing in my wardrobe and I often get compliments on the pieces I choose. I have a penchant for men’s dress shirts, sweaters, socks and even pants. Thrifting is one of my favorite ways to find men’s clothing for great prices because men tend to rotate their wardrobe less than women do and I’ve often found that I can find incredible designer brands for exceptionally low prices.

 

Min this post, I will tag some of my favorite types of men’s pieces from my wardrobe as well as some places you can shop to find similar threads.

 

So, as I mentioned above, I love men’s dress shirts. Oxfords are one of my favorite pieces to wear because the possibilities of combinations with other staples in my wardrobe are truly endless. Right now in Kansas City, it’s pretty cold, so layering with these oversized shirts is a must.

It’s very far away…

 

If you don’t know Jimi Hendrix songs, I’ll expect you to totally be confused, but it is indeed one of my very favorite songs in the world. I am obsessed with Jimi Hendrix, I still feel like I want to be a rock star and to have a band, and I need velvet in my life. So this post, it’s in reference to Jimi. It’s in reference to my love of velvet and my affinity towards psychedelic rock star garb.

Velvet Bodysuits

I created a bodysuit collage on Polyvore. I found five of my favorites, and I’m trying to decide which ones best suit my personality and truthfully, I want them all! I love just about anything velvet, and I think bodysuits are sexy on any body type.
Over the next months, I’ll be dedicating posts to my love of velvet and other glamorous fabrics and materials, because luxurious-looking clothing works for anyone!
