L’Ensemble Du Jour: Black & White Delight

For my Labor Day attire, I decided to wear this darling 1960’s maxi dress as the weather had finally cooled down a bit. I just love the print on this one, it reminds me of a mod patchwork quilt! The ruffled side slit adds just a touch of whimsy. Continue reading

L’Ensemble Du Jour: The Woodstock Generation

43 years ago today, one of the most important events in the history of music took place right here in New York State. Woodstock was THE concert event of the 20th century, and those who were lucky enough to be there for those three magical days on Yasgur’s Farm surely remember it (unless of course they took the brown acid, lol)!

L’ Ensemble Du Jour: Orange Crush

Since I posted about Orange lipstick last week, I have found myself being drawn to the colour like a moth to a flame! So when I spied this little citrus hued floral sundress in someone else’s arms at a local thrift store, I made sure to (politely) hover in her vicinity in case she decided to skip it. Lucky for me, she did not purchase it.

After trying it on, I knew I had to take it home with me. The thing that surprised me the most about this frock was that it is not actually vintage, which it certainly appeared at first glance. Nope! This fit n’ flare dress was made by none other than Isaac Mizrahi…for Target! At 10 bucks, I just could not resist.   Continue reading

L’Ensemble Du Jour: Mod Squad

Every now and then while thrifting or digging through a pile of clothes at a local fleamarket, you will find a truly unexpected gem. For me, it happened over memorial day weekend when it was super hot and humid and I was just about to leave. I happened to spy this beautiful sweater dress sticking out from underneath a bunch of random clothing. Immediately intrigued, I pulled her out from the abyss to have a closer look. I asked the price, 3 whole dollars, and upon viewing the label, I knew I had just made a super score. It was a Milly dress! Milly is one of my favorite brands because not only do her designs eloquently mimic lust-worthy vintage looks but the quality and cut of her garments are superb.  Continue reading

L’ Ensemble Du Jour: Hawaiian Punch

I finally stopped back into “A Little Wicked” yesterday to visit my girl Sammy D and give her a little vintage love. I bought her a crystal necklace from a fleamarket a month ago and had been carrying it around in my purse ever since! I decided that our paths needed to cross and we had a ball at the shop. It was hot and humid out, so I needed to whip up something cool and refreshing from my closet. I purchased this vintage playsuit/romper over the winter. I love the vibrant floral print and the cut of the fabric makes the most of my shape. A great find at $12.00 (Thrifted). I decided to keep my jewelry low key and put in tiny studs and my vintage sterling puffy heart necklace. I also wore a vintage corsage blossom in my hair and clipped it all up on top of my head. It is too gosh darn humid to let her loose! The vintage orange leather heels were from the shop and was a last-minute replacement for my patent leather Birkenstock sandals. Lastly, the hand-painted parasol was purchased in Chinatown for around $5.00. I am a huge fan of parasols in the summer months as they provide shade for my fair skin while looking glamorous at the same time. This was a fun outfit, can’t wait to wear it again 😉 Continue reading

L’Ensemble Du Jour: Betsey in Black

Last week I was looking through my closet and found this little black Betsey  Johnson dress. I bought it at a thrift shop a few weeks back and decided that today was the day to bring her out into the world. Sometimes, you’ll have a fancy dress laying around collecting dust for years waiting for the proper occasion to be debuted. In true Betsey fashion, I decided to wear this dress and hat just because! Some days you just want to feel pretty, and what better way to get there than by wearing a full skirted lace dress with an elegant feathered hat!  I met a lot of wonderful people that day while walking around the city, but had I opted to wear something less extravagant, I may not have had the opportunity.

Prada Minimal Baroque Sunglasses…or are they?

While thrifting earlier this week, a pair of sunglasses managed to catch my eye from clear across the shop. They were big, bright and bold as well as somewhat familiar looking. That was when I spun through my fashion memory bank and realized that they bore a striking resemblance to Prada’s Minimal Baroque Sunglasses! I loved the curve of these shades and the black and white combo feels so fresh and summery. After trying them on in a nearby mirror, I knew I had to have them. The $8.95 price tag made this designer inspired find all the more sweet!

Today I wore these bad-boys with a vintage gingham plaid dress (thrifted), my favorite patent leather Clarks sandals and my vintage white wicker handbag. Topped of with vintage milk-glass screwbacks and a rhinestone cat brooch, the ensemble was complete! Looking forward to wearing these all season long!

XOXO
