Native Denim

Ever have a day where you literally want to eat everything in site and sleep all day. Ugh! My allergies are at an all time high and my monthly visitor likes to intrude on my healthy habits. As guilty as I feel for not working out in over a week today will NOT be the day to get back on the saddle. I've dedicated myself to going to the gym at least 3 days a week... 4 if I'm really on it. But sometimes I plan to take a week off to recoup and just break.

Well about this shirt. Of course its a vintage. It was love at first site. The fringe and denim along with the beading just reminded me of a Native American princess. Typically I weat really short cut offs with it because you cant really wear it as a dress with as high up as it goes on the side. But for the purpose of shooting I said "ah, what the hell, might as well..."

Fringe Jean Top: Thifted // Boots: Charlotte Russe

I've had 2 people try to buy this shirt off my back, but I just love it so much I dont think I'd part with it. I have sooooo many fun pieces I wish I could do a closet video equipped with all the bells and whistles. Maybe one day soon...

Navy Flow

I I have been so into dressing for Fall. My favorite thing right now is having fun with layering. I love it! It gives your outfit some extra punch. Chiffon with knits. Leather with lace. Sequin Cardigans under blazers. Just lots of variety to play with. I'm actually wearing a sleeveless slip dress underneath my knit turtleneck sweater. It steps the fun factor up a lot! Paired it with a skinny jean with a little distress and heels and voila!

Turtleneck sweater: H&M // Strapless dress: H&M // Jeans: DDs // Heels: Zara

Can you believe nothing I'm wearing is thrifted? That hardly ever happens. But H&M is my favorite place to find basics at an awesome price.

I'm wearing my hair out this week too! Then back into a weave it goes. I'll be starting Hairfinity or The Mane Choice pills again soon and if I'm consistent enough I'll do an update here...

I have such a wealth on my Pinterest boards. It keeps me busy for hours sometimes! I just love it. How did I ever find so many smoothie recipes or home decor ideas before it? Lol! Follow me on Pinterest.

Miss Orange

2 posts in one week!? Give a girl some credit, huh? Lol! Right afterwards I ended up waiting an hour in my car for roadside because my car battery died. But I did get a chance to play around and watch TV on my new iPhone 6 so the wait wasn't too painful.

Sweater top and skirt suit: Thrifted // Camo Scarf: Random local accessory store // Shoes: Rainbow
These shoes have been on the chopping block plenty of times but I always end up keeping them. They're just a cheap little shoe from Rainbow but they get the job done sometimes when I want to throw on a semi comfy leopard print heel. I think I'll keep them in the arsenal a little longer.

Fall Nights

Well hello!!! It feels good, yet a little awkward to be posting after so long! Let me just say taking a 5 month break was very necessary, but now that I've gotten another camera I can get back into my photos. Now I can't promise that I will be posting every week or how often I will be, but I will definitely be journaling a lot more. It just felt so good to leave the house and not having to lug a camera or make sure I have time to stop and take pictures. Don't get me wrong I LOVE TAKING PICTURES. It can just really consume you and take up time, and since I've been a little more life focused and business focused it was an extremely welcomed break.

But yesterday I had a great time with an amazing group of women teaching them how to do their makeup. Something else I placed on the back burner due to opening up my Vintage Shop. But it felt great to talk about makeup and just have fun. I may have to try and do some more small group tutorials.

Blouse: Vintage // Crop tank: H&M // Faux leather shorts: Forever 21 // Shoes: c/o Just Fab // 
Hat: Target

If you don't know about my love for Vintage you must be new here. But my personal vintage items and vintage items for sale take up my whole house!!! I am so not a fan of the mall anymore. But I do have places I still love to shop other than thrifting such as Urban Outfitters, Nasty Gal, Asos, H&M, and a few department stores.

But this blouse is a great oversized option to replace a blazer. I purposefully bought it to be huge (a size 22). so next time you are thrifting don't underestimate the possibilities of oversized items or even  items that aren't made for women. Check the mens for oversized sweaters and even the children's for shrunken t-shirts. It's such a playground!

So lets chat! I miss you guys!

Last Sunday

These are some of the last pictures I shot messing around with my camera in my room. Shooting a few pics of my favorite places in my apartment. And showing a few of my favorite pillows, pictures etc.  But unfortunately I can't finish the pictures I planned for this post because I was a victim of theft last Sunday. 
I was at a photoshoot in Duluth at a park and I carelessly left my purse in my car. Styling a shoot takes a lot of stuff and there was already too much to carry. So although I didn't think that it would happen in broad daylight with people walking to and fro, someone helped themselves to my purse and everything in it and my camera which was in a camera bag on the floor. So many things that I worked hard for gone. Why not go out and work for your own things instead of taking from others?! It is the worst feeling of being violated that I have ever experienced. So although I am deeply saddened, frustrated, and stressed out I try to look at it like it could be worse. I am physically safe and these material things will come back to me. So I am working on getting another camera so that I can continue my blog and continue branding Jade Vintage by being my own photographer. I'm staying optimistic!!!
Keep me in your prayers please and I will keep you loves in mine!

Grecian Boyfriend

Blouse: Vintage // Boyfriend Jeans: Asos // Shoes: Zara // Red Bag: Jade Vintage

I've owned this blouse for-eh-ver. I have so many cool items like that. When I finally start to get some wear out of them I'm like "Why haven't I been wearing this!?"

I've noticed from the last couple of posts that denim has been having a true moment in my fashion life. Seems like white, denim, and comfort has taken over. I think because it's hot and humid, so loose, light clothing is winning because it doesn't stick to you. So this won't be the last time you see these boyfriend jeans. Although I need to buy another pair because these are too big!!

Vest: Zara // Crop top: Asos // Overalls: Gap (thrifted) // Shoes: Aerosoles (thrifted) // Purse: Thrifted

I bought this Zara vest in last years sale. I think I have only worn it 3 times maybe. But it is definitely worth the regular price, let alone the sale price, I think it was less than $60. I wish I could hit up Zara's sale now! It just started Friday at midnight so, if you haven't already, check it out! Lemme know what you get.
