have/want

the internet is a dangerous place, my friends; full of little treasures that i tell myself i need. no, not need, but must have if i plan to go on living. i'm honestly that bad about it. and when you think about it, after all the cleaning out i've been doing in closets, i've really just been making room for new things, right? for this edition of have/can't live without want, i went straight to the montana snow vintage shop, which is packed full of great vintage clothes and accessories!

i have a pair of bright pink cropped pants i got from modcloth back when they were having their cabin fever sale, and i want that awesome vintage geometric blouse! it's a fun spring color combination, don't you think?

i have a forever 21 cardigan, and, SURPRISE, another striped banana republic shirt, and i want to pair them with this unique vintage hand pendant necklace. i've never seen a necklace like that before, but i immediately fell in love with it!

i have a plain jane vintage speckled wool skirt that i thrifted probably three years ago. because of the skirt's uber-plain style, i like to wear it with a unique or printed top, like this yellow plaid vintage blouse. and then i'd finish it off with tan wedges or my favorite pair of vintage clogs.

because i love print mixing, because i think a small print is as good as a neutral, because i have a slight obsession with shoes, and because i have more wants than i could count, this one is a want/want! i want those gorgeous timo wedge sandals from blowfish, i'd pair them with the pretty vintage sheer dress, and i'd wear them until i started to smell. no. wait. i'd wear them often, but i'd try to throw in a few other outfits here and there.

i'm curious, what's on your wish list right now?

also, if you haven't done so yet, be sure to visit beca's blog and enter the HUGE GIVEAWAY! win a print, a pair of dinosaur toes hoop earrings, a pair of beca's awesome wood sunglasses, and a crochet headband!

  2. I like this idea, its easier to shop online when you know what to pair it with.....also, I want to see an outfit with those pink capris. I think they're really sweet!

    1. i think you're right, it's definitely easy when you know how you'll pair it, but sometimes (if you're like me) you get something not knowing what you'll do with it, and sometimes it just ends up collecting dust :\ as soon as we have those 60+ degree days again, i'm wearing the pink pants just for you!

  4. i like this have/want idea. Unfortunately the thing I want most of all is for my hair to be longer, and as I am not so keen on the idea of buying that, I'll just have to be patient...

    .. or anything from Dear Golden vintage --- http://www.etsy.com/people/DearGoldenVintage

    so many nice things

    1. hahaha! you're not weird at all! sometimes i think i am; for example, i have this old kangaroo figurine made with real fur that i think is awesome, and chris was so freaked out by it he asked me to hide it!
