Most of my inspiration for dressing comes from the internet. That’s probably why I love blogging and sharing on instagram so much; putting my ideas out there and viewing other peoples ideas and constantly having a cycle of inspiration to draw from. And then every once in awhile I get inspiration from a totally random place, that seemingly appeared from nowhere. Continue reading

Halloween Goodies Roundup

Larkspur Vintage | Halloween Themed Clothing RoundupLarkspur Vintage | Halloween Themed Clothing RoundupIf You’ve Got it, haunt it

If you are as crazy as I am about Halloween festivities, then it’s likely you have already scoured the internet for Halloween pieces to add to your closet. But maybe you haven’t, and that’s why I thought in the name of Halloween and sharing the fun, I would put together a roundup of some cute Halloween inspired pieces from around the web. I’ve already picked up a couple things for myself that will eventually make an appearance here, but until then, here are some goodies I didn’t pick up, but kind of want to now.

Collection: Samantha Pleet S/S 2016

Collection: Samantha Pleet S/S 2016Collection: Samantha Pleet S/S 2016Collection: Samantha Pleet S/S 2016YES, PLEET.

I’ve been following Samantha’s collections for what feels like years and years now, and it’s been so interesting to watch her label change and grow, while still maintaining many of it’s defining design elements – it’s surprising, while also being kind of reassuring. Samantha Pleet has always been for the dreamer, and in my opinion, the unapologetic weirdo, so to speak; a label I feel connected to in many ways. This collection features pockets disguised as windows, shift dresses, co-ords, 70s collars, wide legged pants and of course, a Pleet collection would not be complete without an illustrated print featuring the collection’s themes.

**************

Are you fans of Samantha Pleet as well? How do you feel about this collection? It’s a bit different than past seasons – more masculine.

Often times it is months and months before I am allowed to post images because they need to be published in a magazine (or two) beforehand, so I have many beautiful photos saved on my computer, collecting dust, waiting for their release from captivity. But, here we are! The Beaumont Sisters, shot back in the summer by Gerald has now been published in Off The Rails (along with some other mags) as their cover story.

Outfit: Sweater Forever

Larkspur Vintage | Outfit: Sweater ForeverWhile I was in the process of packing up and moving a few months ago, I did a huge purge of clothes I was one day planning on listing in my shop but never got around to. I wanted to start fresh, so that when I got back into it – whenever that will be – I’d have only the pieces I really loved and felt proud of selling. While going through the bins and bins of forgotten goodies, I happened upon this pullover. I think at one point it was actually in the shop but never sold (incredibly practical, but not at all eye-catching, thus very over looked). For whatever reason, even though I had this pullover for years, I saw it with new eyes and felt it needed to be part of my personal closet. It’s been an absolutely well-loved piece from that moment on. It gets worn at least every week, if not several times a week (which means I have repaired holes in the armpits 3 times now). Aside from being super comfy and easy to throw on at a moments notice, it’s incredibly versatile; can be worn with trousers or a skirt, over-top a dress, tucked in, tucked out, layered over a button up, on it’s own – clearly a sign that it has a well-deserved spot in my wardrobe. There are many pieces I have sold over the years that give me pangs of regret, I didn’t ever think I would feel a sigh of relief that this one didn’t sell, although, I don’t think I would have ever felt a sense of regret had it sold years ago – I wouldn’t have known what I was missing. It reminds me of a love I once had, a slow starting fire, one that didn’t spark right away, but eventually grew to be a warmth I could not do without.
