This Is Halloween

Larkspur Vintage | This Is HalloweenHappy Halloween Guys and Ghouls!

Since the day I found this Halloween vest, I’ve been pretty darn excited to wear it. It’s the type of thing that can only be worn this time of year (without looking insane), so certainly not practical, but I just could not pass it up when I found it. It reminds me of something an enthusiastic grade school teacher would wear, which I imagine is probably exactly where it originated. But now it’s mine, certainly not a grade school teacher, but definitely enthusiastic, and I hope to be able to enjoy it each Halloween for years to come.

As for tonight’s Halloween festivities, I may stay in with a friend, watch scary movies and eat snacks, but there is the option of a Halloween party, which is generally always a good time, but I did however already go to one on Saturday, where I dressed up as Steve Jobs (lol) and that may have fulfilled my Halloween costume party quota for the year. Either way, it will be a fun night, I’m sure.

What are you guys getting up to? Dressing up? Don’t like Halloween? Let me know in the comments below.

Clothes To Wear

Larkspur Vintage | Clothes To WearLarkspur Vintage | Clothes To WearAs a blogger, sometimes you get sent clothes that are just not what you expected. Actually, I believe that is a general rule for buying any clothes online; it may not fit because you can’t try it on and you don’t get the chance to see or feel the quality beforehand. There have been many times, with both gifted items and ones bought myself, where I just end up selling it or giving it away because it was not what I expected or did not fit. That, however, has never been the case with my Mod Dolly pieces. Their pieces have always been true to size (at least, for me), the quality is fantastic, especially for an independent label and they are totally practical items to have  in my closet. The thing about my Mod Dolly pieces is that I can actually live in them. Some of the clothes I have, I worry about them ripping or getting stained, or not being able to stand everyday wear and tear. But my Mod Dolly pieces have never felt that way. Sure, they are adorable and feminine, but they are tough and sturdy and make me feel my best when wearing them. And that’s what I want in clothes. I want them to reflect me, in all ways. Not just in style, but in actual wearability. I want them to be able to withstand my lifestyle. Sure, some clothes are mean’t for special occasions, mean’t for gentle care. Those pieces are special, but they’ll never be as special as the pieces that join me through my whole life; the average and the outstanding, the good and the bad.

One Woman’s Trash…

Larkspur Vintage | One Woman's TrashLarkspur Vintage | One Woman's TrashBaby’s first denim jacket!

One of the things I love about my day job as a second-hand clothing buyer is having amazing – sometimes one of a kind – clothes fall into my lap, figuratively and quite literally. Take for example this vintage Wrangler denim jacket and page boy hat; two pieces I knew I would like in my closet after seeing others wear similar ones, but pieces I would likely never actively seek out on my own. Thing is, neither of these things are essentials (is anything other than one of something ever essential though?), so they become something left to fate…if I happen upon it one day, certainly I’ll purchase it (as long as it’s not too expensive), but if I don’t, that’s okay.  However, I am damn pleased these two came into my life, especially this denim jacket. I love this jacket! Love it. To be honest, I’ve never even owned a denim jacket. I’ve tried on my fair share of them in my life, but I never truly fancied any…until this one. The second I saw this one, before even trying it on, I knew it was what I had been holding out for – the indigo colour, the 70s cut (to the best of my knowledge it is from the 70s), the slightly worn, however sturdy denim…it’s just the best. I hope to be able to carry it with me throughout my life, so it kind of baffles my mind that someone decided to give it away. But as they say…one woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure and whatnot.
