i heart crochet

Top, hat, bag, boots, cape/cardigan: Vintage/Thrift. Shorts: American Apparel.
…..and vintage anything and bell shapes (on sleeves and jeans).
Love it all.
Pics taken before the I-don’t-need-a-jacket kind of heat was gone. The bag has multi straps that randomly fall off my shoulder. I gave up trying to keep them in place.
What are you up to this weekend? I’m meeting friends in Williamsburg Brooklyn tomorrow.
Not sure about Sunday.

  2. Li says:

    Love the crochet top, I want summer back! Which thrift stores do you go to, because all your thrifted pieces are amazing! Have fun tomorrow!

  3. Louise says:

    That bag is gorgeous, I love the floppy straps. We are just coming into summer here in NZ and I really want to find something crochet to wear to death – really hard as shopping where I live is really limited and there are zero vintage stores (it kills me). Adore the sleeves on yours 🙂

  5. Amalina says:

    The crochet piece suits your style so well…love it on you. And I actually like the straps falling off your shoulder, they add a little more character to the outfit, it’s about the details 😉

    Oh and I forgot to add …. I got these shorts the other day and I just think they would be beyond amazing on you. They come in cream and black, thought you’d like to check them out http://www.rubyboutique.co.nz/Product_22.aspx?CategoryId=144&pageId=0&ProductId=7166

    I know it’s kinda hard to see the detail but they are seriously amazing – high waisted in the most amazing heavy lace, with darts and great tailoring so they sit out like a little skirt.
