Rustic Picnic

Tunic Dress- Local Thrift Sale
Beaded Belt/ Arm Cuff- Local Thrift Sale
Shoes- Jeffery Campbell
Flower Crown- Urban Outfitters
This is the first look i've done for solely me, in a long time. No sponsors, no deadlines and no strings attached. It was rejuvenating. I was really inspired by photos from this years coachella, a motif of western pieces paired with romantic and boho articles, I took that theme and ran with it. I tried to recreate my own quirky campsite by i collecting old blankets, chests, books, and arranging like a runway's picnic. Like Coachella I wanted my photos to have dimension and texture, filled with mix-matched, unity. I hope to be at Coachella next year inspiring blogposts like this one.

A Day At The: Chelsea flee market

My mom and I have been on a repurposing kick, so we have been flea market hopping on Sundays mornings. So many DIY projects and so little time! This sunday I ended up buying a gold 1920's belt for a fine $10 and a vintage Ralph Lauren jacket which was alittle pricey for $35, totally worth it. As you know I love digging through odd stuff and this market was filled with freaky wonders!! I bought a letter press box for $16 to be used as jewelry storage/organization, it's prefect for displaying all my rings and pendants! Next Sunday I'm going to another flea market and ill post more treasures then! - x0xO Phoebe

Where The Wild Things Are

It actually feels like spring today in New York  but the beautiful weather is not helping my horrible case of Senioritis. Its just a few more weeks, I can do this!!! On another good note its the beggining of yard sale season and i'm pumped, I love sifting through old briefcases, plastic jewelry and frumpy sweaters. I get all excited even typing about the unloved treasures sitting in boxes right now just waiting to come home with me.

Hakuna Matata

Sunglasses - Armani
Shirt- Batoko.com
Skirt- American Apparel
Shoes- Jeffery Campbell
Backpack- Coach
This outfit is super causal and comfortable. I love this shirt, its so fierce and reminds me of The Lion King only the best Disney movie ever. This outfit had me bopping around all day singing the catchy tune "Hakuna Matata! Ain't no passing craze, It means no worries for the rest of your days
It's our problem-free philosophy..." which ends up being really annoying to the people around you. Clothing with megestic animals like wolves and big cats has been a huge trend since mid-winter, I plan on carrying into my spring wardrobe with cut-offs and dresses. New York hasn't had any spring weather yet but Ive been stock piling clothes since september and ill be ready when it comes. - Phoebe
