Vintage Tees & Vintage Necklaces

I have always been a fan of rocker tees or vintage tees, in fact, I have started collecting them and buy one when I go to a concert. I also have been going through some boxes after we cleaned out our storage unit and found some boxes of my mother's stuff. Most of it is old clothes and some random medical supplies from when she was sick, but I did find a box that had a bunch of her shoes and her jewelry from when she was younger. Even though it's hard to go through, it's also really cool to see what her style was like and realizing that we actually have the same style, in some ways. 
I remember when I was a small child, I used to think that my mother had horrible taste. She always stood out from the other plain mothers and for some reason I thought it was odd, but now when I look back, I think differently. 
This necklace was one of my mother's that actually got passed around between my grandmother and my mother. My mother bought it and my grandmother loved it so much that whenever my mother wanted money to go out with her friends, my grandmother would use it as collateral until my mother paid her back. I just think that's funny, that the two most important women in my life, both loved this piece so much. I think of that story often.

So anyway, vintage pieces...that's where I was going with this story, are not only fun to find, but are fun to wear, knowing your piece is unique and has a story of it's own. 

Here are some of my favorite vintage finds...

Vintage tees...I may have to snag one of the Linkin Park tees, they were one of my favorite bands and they are always on my playlist for the day. Miss you Chester Bennington, you were amazing!

J.Crew Leopard Fur Coat & Marc Jacobs Glitter Pink Boot

I have to say, that fall is my favorite time of the year. I love wearing jackets and sweaters and cute boots. I love the layering, the deeper colors but most of all, the fabrics. Suede, shearling, fur, leather, all scream fall to me and I love it. 
While I was organizing recently, I came across a few items that I can't wait to wear with the cooler weather. 

I know I have shared this necklace before, it is my mother's Squash Blossom Necklace that she has since she was a teenager. I used to think it was called "Squash bottom" necklace, which never made sense to me but didn't think to question her about it. I don't have any memories or pictures of her wearing this, it was just in her jewelry box along with similar pieces, that I found after she passed away. I really wish I could find a picture of her wearing it though.

Awww..the glitter pink boots. I know I've posted these before, but I keep seeing pink everywhere lately and am excited to mix them in with my fall wardrobe. I know pink can sometimes be tricky, especially pink glitter boots, but it'll be fun to play around with. 

While school shopping this year, I was given this sample pack of scents from Abercrombie & Fitch. I know that they are for men, but I love the scent of these anyway. That store always smells so good! 

My mother's vintage Levis cords and silver glitter boots. 

Every girl needs to have some leopard and sequins in their closet! J.Crew is my go to store for both sequins and leopard. They always have such a great selection and style for both looks.

J.Crew Feather Plume & Abercrombie & Fitch Hoodie

After seeing some looks similar to this one, I decided to try it, meaning adding the feathers to an otherwise casual look. I found this cut off, super soft hoodie at Abercrombie & Fitch and layered it with a feather trimmed cami that I bought a while ago from J.Crew. The brocade slides were a recent purchase from Target and it was the purples and blues that caught my eye. 
So, anyway, just a casual day trying to play with different pieces in my closet. 
I've also been playing with different color schemes in my Photoshop app. In case you were wondering about the difference in the background colors.

Thank you for stopping by!
