recent purchases.


very PS1-ish, for only $110.
it arrived in my mailbox yesterday, and i'll be carrying it tomorrow, of course!

very pamela love & lowluv, for much less.


KnT by kova & t striped blouse and silence & noise sheer button down blouse, both via urban outfitters.

so very ME :)

maxed out.



asos maxi dress; forever 21 aviators; new york & company quilted bag; fashionology.nl hammered knuckle ring, cross ring, and claw ring; lowluv x erin wasson bone bracelet and scarab ring; vintage tribal cuff; secondhand belt and sandals.


i've had this maxi dress ever since i got these brown boots a few months ago, but am just now busting it out. why did i wait so long? it's soft, flowy, perfect...

i'm really having fun playing with different accessories. aviators are one of those things that i normally avoid because i hate nose pieces on sunglasses (they always leave those unflattering red marks), but when i realized how much this oversized pair flattered my face, i couldn't pass them up.

it's weird how my memory is almost photographic - i was looking at the pictures for this outfit while editing them, and then i instantly remembered that one of my favorite bloggers, lena, wore pretty much exactly the same thing back in april. i am most inspired by scandinavian street style, so it actually doesn't surprise me a bit that i put together such a similar look as hers :)


i leave you with this twitpic from yesterday.
i have the weekend off, and i'm definitely going to enjoy it as much as possible.
hope you do too!

native touches.








h&m divided black sheer button down; vintage levi DIY cutoffs; victoria's secret lace triangle bra; new york & company quilted bag; forever 21 feather earrings and watch; lowluv x erin wasson bone bracelet and scarab ring via tobi.com; fashionology.nl hammered knuckle ring, claw ring, and cross ring; vintage native american cuff; alice + olivia for payless wedge boots.

  • the feather earrings and tribal-esque cuff give a couple of native touches to my all black outfit. i'm 1/8 cherokee (my great-grandfather was full-blooded), and i think that may be part of the reason why i'm drawn to nature-inspired jewelry, like these two pieces, and the bone bracelet, bird skull necklace, and claw ring that i wear daily.

  • after urban outfitters ran out of my size in a pair of vintage shorts, i found these levi's on eBay, and then cut the hems and destroyed them a bit with an exacto knife. perfect for summer and only $7.

  • i still heart my alice + olivia boots. while i do love sandals, rugged ankle boots, whether flat or heeled, always feel more appropriate to me. plus i hate painting my toenails and getting my feet stepped on.

optical illusion.


h&m divided black dress

i usually shy away from such a body-conscious fit and graphic print, but i just could not pass this dress up. i think the long sleeves did it for me. i love long sleeves on a mini dress.
and the print is very givenchy s/s 2010 inspired - that's definitely not a bad thing.
i'll be styling it with my black clutch and wedge sandals.
now i just need somewhere to wear it. a date with my boyfriend? a night out with the girls? maybe my five year high school reunion coming up in two weeks (eek!)?

abbey overload.






(source - tobaccoandleather)

a few simple summer looks on our girl abbey, just to hold you over until my next outfit post. i've been really busy working (selling h&m clothes to the people of indianapolis, haha!), and everytime i say on twitter that i'm going to do an outfit post, i never end up doing one.
so i'm never saying that again! we'll just say that one will be up soon :)

summertime has brought out the classic side of me.

three easy pieces.






h&m divided black t-shirt dress
new york & company quilted bag.
topshop suede wedges.

it's hot, and i don't want to put too much thought or effort into getting dressed.
hence, three easy pieces, with few interesting details.
