I thought I would just do a little tribute to some beautiful looks from the 30's...I would DIE for these amazing furs...i'm not really into fur so much....but vintage fur, well now that is another story, my dears...Look at those GIGANTIC majestic and riche...LOVE LOVE LOVE...When I look at pics like this, it transports me to a time that I long to be in, a time when everyone dressed up all the time, a time when people took pride in their appearance, a time where Pajama Jeans (ugghh!) would never see the light of day...

***I would be lying if I said it was easy to get back into blogging after the break I took, for some reason lately it has been really hard to wrangle everything that goes on into my head into a post...but I am back! With a little note (push) from my friend Cherie, who told me she misses my posts, I have regained my focus....I hope I haven't lost all of my amazing readers...***

Shirt, scarf, and boots: vintage/ Jeans: Gap

Was playing around with pinning my hair back...I think I want short hair again...I have been dreaming about it! It's current state is something similar to a rat's nest!

Tied some contrasting colored suede lace around to jazz up these old babies...Its funny, these boots were in my "SELL" pile but now they are once again in rotation...perfect example of why I can't let go of anything!!

A friend gave me this amber ring a million years ago and I still love is big and timeless!

I have a serious addiction to vintage scarves....I usually rock them in my hair, but lately I've been loving them as an ascot like addition to my button down vintage shirts...

////This is the longest I have ever slacked on my blog...I have been crazy busy with some new projects so I hope all of you can stick with me! This month is hectic so my posts may be a bit sporadic...but come the New Year LLD will be back in full force!! I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving...I stuffed myself with risotto and eggplant parm! Hope your weekend rocks!!!///

Dear Lita,
Upon first seeing you...I felt this elated feeling in my stomach. It was love. You are a pretty amazing spectacle. Not only would you provide the height that I currently crave to be but you also made yourself available in every single color and texture possible. Glitter mania! Tapestry toes...LOVE LOVE LOVE! Here is where things get complicated, Lita. Everyone and their mother and their grandmother are wearing you...and quite frankly I am just not that type of girl. I like things for myself, items that no one else really has and my darlin you are not quite cutting have spread yourself around a little too much. So with much regret, I have to say goodbye Lita...I will no longer imagine multiple outfits that I can pair you with, I will long for you no more...

WHY?? Whyyyyy????

Dress: vintage
Leather Leaf Necklace: my own design
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell
Black Opaque Tights: Target
Earrings: Urban Outfitters

///Man oh man, I am coming out of a serious week long rut!!...I have felt so down and out the past several days...maybe it's the weather change, maybe I am just a crazy bitch. We will never know for sure...but let me tell you, finding this gem of a dress at the thrift store has really helped elevate my mood! Is retail therapy better than anti-depressants? I like to think so...I truly believe me and this dress were made for each other!! How amazing is this 70's print??...and the oversized triangle sleeves!!! Heaven, my heaven!
There are some really exciting things that are beginning to happen in my and my man's life that I can't wait to share with you...I just have to give it a little more time...and NO!! I am not pregnant! It is just proof that everything happens for a all does my pretties...///

I was in a weird mood when we took these pics, I think it shows....anyhooooooo
Sweater Dress: unknown (maybe vintage?)
Knit leggings: Forever 21
Boots: Vintage Frye
Hat: my mans vintage Borselino
Leather necklace: my own design

///I found this sweater dress at Buffalo Exchange...the colors really caught my attention...I LOVE the color combo and the is a bit big on me but I don't really care, (a belt doesn't help, believe me I tried), it just bulks it out in the wrong way... regardless it is comfort supreme!!! Worn with my fave Fryes that were a gift MOONS ago, the knit leggings I can't take off and topped with my man's vintage Borselino. He gets so worried when I wear it because it is so precious to him....I would never do anything to hurt such a beautiful piece...puulleez!
I just realized that this is my 100th post!!!!...(i am patting myself on the back). This blog and the whole blogging world has been my savior out here. I feel like I can really express myself and still feel a part of a fashion community as I did back East. I love my blog, I love all my readers and I love all of my reader's blogs!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!///

Ike and Tina Turner's album "What You Hear Is What You Get" was a live recording from Carnegie Hall released in 1971. It is one of my favorite pieces of vinyl that I listen to ALL the time. Although Ike and Tina were not compatible in their personal lives, the music they made was true brilliance that no one could ever recreate. The best shake your ass soulful shit you have ever heard...Tina was a mesmerizing performer and IS a true style icon...

This is my interpretation of what she might of worn while rocking on stage back in the 70's...yesterday meets today...inspired by the album cover...
Tina is known for those LEGS!!...there is no doubt that she would be rocking these short ass shimmy shaking dresses...
3.1 Phillip Lim: side draped sequin dress
Anna Sui: silk tulle sequin embellished dress

Before the high stiletto we all know today...the slingback heel was a high sexy heel (and still is in my book)...metallics and animal prints...grrrrrr...
Carlos by Carlos Santana: curiosity sandal in bronze
Leopard print slingback pumps

These fringed bib necklaces would be perfect for her overly energetic performances...anything that swings is rockin'...
E2: black fringe necklace
Chain and suede fringe necklace

The superstar would be glammed out in I am not one who usually likes diamonds but damn that rose cut diamond is AMAZING...
Kenneth Jay Lane: leopard earrings
Swarvoski: appolon ring
Lucifer Vir Honestus: rose cut diamond ring
