Just Vintage

Tweed is such a classic winter style. With colors ranging from browns to grays, to blues, it is such a simple timeless statement piece. Instead of the tweed newsboy caps I used to see my uncles cover their balding heads with, a sexy version of a tweed pant suit is to die for. Layer with floral prints, and you have the perfect look to blow your colleges in the office away. Put a sophisticated twist on the school picture day floral get-ups your mother made you wear with matchy floral or printed suits and have the perfect happy hour look. Throw an inevitably warm fur in the mix, a touch of lace, and maybe a splash of red and you have Cavalli's F/W collection in a nutshell.

I am utterly and completely in love with the Just Cavalli 2011 - 2012 Fall/Winter Collection. This collection gave birth to a beautiful combination of tweed, floral, prints, lace, and furs. All of which are my fall/winter inspiration. The debut of this collection was earlier this year but seeing the newest editorial got me so excited I had to blog from work. Here are some of my favorite looks to warm up such a cold day...

Opposites Attract

I skipped my morning classes today so I felt like such a leather wearing, motorcycle riding, butt kicking rebel chic. But I tried a new hairstyle which turned out curly, and fluffy so I still had that usual "hippie me" deep down in my heart. Lounging around the house I felt funky and cool so I combined these fashion enemies to create an outfit that completely defined my mood

Floral Maxi Skirt: Vintage
Cropped Sweater: H&M
Studded Leather Jacket: Nikki's (one of my ebay models) closet

If you like my look hype it here

Hi, My name is Elan & I'm Addicted to Vintage...

I haven't posted in ages, but my new inheritance is enough to encourage me to fall in love with vintage all over again. Since I seem to have been neglecting everyone and everything lately due to my academic commitment, I decided to visit my aunt and uncle last night. Fortunately for me she was in the process of overcoming her addiction. For years she has been hoarding clothes, accessories, and handbags and last night was "bag cleaning season". In between our girl talk, she pulled out some of the most amazing vintage handbags I have ever seen in one place. Coach, Liz Claiborne, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and other Italian made genuine leather bags covered the floor. I felt like I was in an 80s tsunami (even though we don't quite have those on the east coast). I admit, I couldn't completely control my drool so she showed me some of her newer style bags to calm me. See if you can contain yourself...
