Tues Feb 9th - Modern Day Alice

I've told myself again and again for the past year that I would wear more colors on a daily basis. Judging from my posts throughout the past year, the results are generally unsuccessful. Although in my defense, I've been fancying powder blue and general pastel colors lately when I head out through the farthest corners of San Diego.

Speaking of my shopping splurges, I recently found two simply amazing stores to stop by during my San Diego sprees. Every Wednesday the Salvation Army by my area has a neat 50% off sale their entire store, which is already a treasure trove of neat little pieces. Then there's Flashbacks, an amazing affordable vintage store in Hillcrest that I simply melt for. Of the many pieces I purchased, these three vintage pieces captured my heart.





My new goal is to wear more color! I suppose it doesn't help that all of my major outerwear pieces are black, but I must work around it!






Powder Blue Dress - Buffalo Exchange ($21)
Black Boyfriend Blazer - Foreign Exchange ($20)
Vintage Purse - Nine West, Salvation Army ($9)
Black MaryJane Wedges - Urban Outfitters ($30)

Looks like we have the sane goal!! It hasn't really been working out that well for me, though. My entire closet is pretty much black and grey.

Gorgeous outfit :)

Kim said...

I completely agree! McQueen wasn't someone who you were excited about because he had potential, McQueen WAS talent. It is so sad that his fall lines are the last we will see from him.

Looks like some exciting finds! I saw this lovely old lady last week wearing mint green & pastel pink and so I've been craving the colour combination ever since. I've never been a head-to-toe black everyday girl, but still know what you mean by wanting more colour. Slow & steady injections perhaps?
