Forever 21 shirt, Vintage bells & bag, Cooperative sandals (although ya can't see them), thrifted belt, Warby Parker sunglasses, Acessorize Tigereye ring, Jo wrap ring

Nuts. Absolutely nuts. Yesterday was OBSCENELY gorgeous. It was warm, sunny, not too hot, not windy at all...the epitome of the calm before the storm. 

Now the city is bracing itself for something none of us are 100% prepared for. I live on the 8th floor of my apartment building, so we should be safe from flooding and all that fun stuff.

But anyway, I pushed those thoughts out of my head for a day and wore some cheery, bright lipstick from Sephora with my favorite thrift find ever; my studded bellbottoms. This lipstick ("LoveTest 11") is amazing by the way, in these photos, I had been wearing it for 4 hours and didn't need to reapply! The bellbottoms are particularly close to my heart, despite the fact that I pretty much haven't showcased them on my blog yet. I had found them in a thrift store in Buffalo back when I was a Sophomore in high school, and, simultaneously, my best friend Elanna had found the same exact pair at Beacon's closet here in NYC in her size too! 

The bag is a fave too, I picked this weird guy up at my favorite vintage store here in the village and it's a really funky piece to add to something shapeless and loose or, in this case, 70's-inspired. I was apprehensive at first about wearing so much blue, but the basket bag fits my essentials and it was my only unpacked, un-hardware'd bag, so there. I plan to wear it next with a shift dress and loafers when there's not not, y'know, a hurricane outside.

  5. Oh my god. You look absolutely stunning with this outfit. Your bell bottoms are such a great find and they look as if they were made for you. I'm also really liking your bag, it's quite wacky and eccentric but it ties in so well with your other items.
