Krissy + Cody were just married this August in South Dakota with a barnyard chic theme which showed in every detail of their big day. They truly brought out, both the charm of living in South Dakota, while remembering their New Jersey roots. The grooms cake is an exact replica of Cody’s vintage truck and every detail added to the fun and charm of their wedding, such as the old-fashioned candy jars, the vintage inspired South Dakota and New Jersey license plates, and can’t forget the popcorn machine. I just love the picnic table cloths that also played into the groomsmen attire and the whole theme just came together effortlessly chic. Congrats K&C!

As you can see by my last post, I have been on a jewelry showcasing kick lately! Check out this old frame I purchased at an estate sale for $3.00! I jumped the gun and primed it white (originally wood/brown) before I took a picture of it. I than lightly sanded it and painted it spring cactus green. I went to a local thrift store, where I purchased the white lace for $4.00, with plenty left over for another project. Used my hot glue gun to secure the fabric to the back of the frame…and ta da! A simple and fun DIY project…xo

This was my must have piece for the winter, everything from the color to the silk lining inside, this jacket/cape had me at “Hello”. Two main concerns with this coat was the hefty price tag of $258 and the fact that my good friend/co-worker is the one who introduced me to it and bought it herself! I realized than it was not meant to be and I had to let it go. Weeks went by and as I was doing my weekly internet window shopping I stumbled back onto Anthropologie’s website to find that the coat was marked down 50%!!! I knew now I had to have it, after asking my friend for her approval first, since this is a signature piece! I swore I would never wear the coat around her! I obeyed this unspoken code of womanly ethics and never looked back as I soak up all the compliments I get over it and how this magic cape transforms me into a vintage vixen. This is a signature and classic wardrobe staple every woman needs in her closetchic~
* Pair this cape with some pearls and long gloves!
And I am not just talking about good karma! These days we have to be aware of everything; from what we eat to what we throw away and our daily carbon footprints we leave behind. That’s why recycling is so important these days. Recycling is more than throwing your plastic bottles and cans in the recycling bins, it’s about Reusing and Reducing as well, and doing so has never been so chic!
Most people look at vintage clothes as unique timeless pieces (which they are), but they are also the best way in recycling beautiful pieces that is all ready made and out in the world. Why waste mother nature’s time and energy when you can reduce your carbon footprint with these unique, vintage and recycled pieces below! Cheers to good karma!
