Lady Day: Blue Moon

Royal Blue turtle neck top- American Apparel/ 70s floral print skirt- Vintage/ White gold key necklace- LoveIt jewelry/ Basket weaved clutch- Thrifted/ Rounded hooded shades- Buffalo Exchange/ Soiree- Jeffrey Campbell

     While listening to usual Billie Holiday Pandora playlist while blogging, I started singing along to one of her classics hits "Blue Moon" and knew I had to dedicate this look to the blues legend. Also nicknamed Lady Day, Billie Holiday's deep husky sound fills my soul. She always makes me feel like a classy blues lady, which is exactly how I felt wearing this American Apparel turtle neck and 70's floral print slip. Topping off my look with a basket weaved clutch and Lucite heels, this was my version of a modern 70's stay home wife. Had a nice evening strolling around one of my favorite hangout areas in Old Town Orange. Also hitting up one of my favorite health foods restaurants Rutabegorz, I couldn't resist treating myself to a cup of hot green tea and a slice of rich warm carrot cake:) That sounds like a relaxing evening if you ask me! Now as the Lady of Blues once sang... "Blue moon, you saw me standing alone, without a dream in my heart, without a love on my own."

Dolce Vita: Dishi Blouse

Green leopard collar Dishi blouse- Dolce Vita/ Snake bite pants- Style Stalker/ Round hooded shades- Buffalo Exchange/ Vintage coin bracelet- LoveIt Jewelry/  Black litas- Jeffrey Campbell

      Officially preparing myself and my wardrobe for back to school. Transferring to a new school as well as making a transition into fall season is defiantly exciting! Some recent additions to my racks would be this fun leopard print collar button up complimentary of Dolce Vita :) Was overly anxious to open up another package from DV and almost died once I saw the leopard collar. Decided to pair it with these bad ass, snake bite, lace up pants by Style Stalker. I though this blouse needed a to have a fun partner in crime and to top it off with some thrifted leather Litas.
