outfit details:
Banana Republic black retro style dress – Out of The Closet, vintage necklace – gift, cateye sunglasses – The Goodwill, black tights – Marshall’s, vintage purse – thrifted, black Missoni x Target heels (old) – Target, rings are a mix of gifts, vintage, and Forever 21, white satin bolero jacket – Marshall’s

We actually shot this outfit about a week ago…but life happens. Attended We All Grow LA (Summit) which was tons of fun. Then shortly after, I took a trip to visit my mom and so all of my energy was focused on her. Now, I’m back in LA and so sick. But today I am finally having the energy to write a little bit.

And you know, I do admire styling others in a sixties fashion and especially LOVE shooting it. My own personal style has always had more of a ’40s, ’50s, and sometimes a little ’60s thrown in there just to spice things up.
I rarely rock a nude lip and my hair hasn’t been this big since the days of rocking victory rolls. But surprisingly, I’m kind of diggn’ this look. 😉

Anyway, pretty much everything I am wearing were spectacular finds. My sixties style Banana Republic dress I scored at Out of The Closet in immaculate condition for about five bucks! I was sold on the little bow at the empire waist. Also, I love my little vintage handbag, it’s kind of falling apart now but I can’t let go. My Missoni suede heels were a lucky find at a Target in Phoenix back when everyone was going bananas over that collection.

So what do you babes think? Should I rock the sixties vibe a little more often? And more importantly, do you ever wear styles like this? Where do you shop to piece together your outfits?

    Love this 60s inspired look–so mod squad! The hair and make-up are gorgeous and you look beautiful. And those baubles! You inspired me to do a sixties look. My style is all over the place depending on my mood and I shop everywhere. And yes, you should do rock this more often.

    These photos are so fun! Love the vibe of the photography just as much as your outfit. And I love nude lips – they grow on you (they're way less work)! xo

    Thanks Luci! That means a lot. Yeah, you are definitely right about that…so much less work. I don't know why I always feel that when I do my makeup, I HAVE to do a bold lip. 😉 xoxo
