I'm stuck like glue to my guy
Denim Jacket - Levi's, thrifted
Boots: Vintage Naturalizer, Ebay
Necklace: Renegade Craft Fair
Bag: Thomas Paul, www.fredflare.com
It's hard to look really feminine when it's super cold out. I'm constantly taking public transportation so it's not like I can go in my car and wear whatever girly thing I want. I feel like there has to be some kind of compromise between being practical (which typically means looking like a marshmallow in zero degree weather) and maintaining your own style. I've always thought my own style was a mixture of tomboy cool and vintage sweetheart. This look may seem really masculine in comparison to my other outfits but I tried incorporating subtle feminine details to make it more me.
The ring and necklace are two of my staple accessories and the bag I DIE for. I've been stalking this tote bag ever since I saw debut on Fred Flare. I waited weeks and weeks before it went on sale from $58 to $20. It's the perfect book bag for school. Details and accessorizing are VERY important to me. I often splurge on a really great accessory as opposed to a trendy piece of clothing. Also, I got that jacket and plaid shirt the same day at Unique Thrift store, both 50% off. The jacket is slightly too big but for $6, I can compromise!
