Somewhere in The Carolinas – A partially abandoned shopping mall that looks to have been built in the late 1970s. Nothing nearly gentrified here and, well, it is a breath of fresh air.

Today’s outfit was inspired by malaise I have been feeling. A touch moody, human feelings. Color was needed here. I slipped into a silk-like evergreen loose calf-length dress and pointy toe red vegan leather boots. Cool looking and comfortable for the quickly rising pre-summer temperatures around the bend. The dress roomy enough for the entire entree I devoured at lunch with my dude. So nice.

Outfit consists of the following pieces:

Modern evergreen 3/4 length dress with mutton sleeves – thrift shop find/ no tag

Costume jewelry – sourced from secondhand shops and/or Afro-American beauty supply store

Black circular handbag with gold hardware – Ebay find

Cherry red vegan leather pointy toe boots – Qupid

Somewhere in The Carolinas – Summer is right around the corner and no one gets fussier than I do in the southern humidity and heat. As a fan of natural fibers, linen is definitely no stranger in my wardrobe. Linen is breathable and if steamed or pressed pulls ones’ look together. Add a cool drink and a shady nook and you are on your merry way…in style.

Somewhere in The Carolinas – I recently scored this sharp leopard print velvet blazer shopping secondhand. It appears to be 1990s vintage. Fully lined with Mandarin collar and is in excellent condition. On this day, I wore it with a 1980s vintage grey silk long sleeve blouse, a pair of modern high waisted black cropped flares and tall brown leather Chelsea boots [note: These boots have been one of the best clothing trades I have ever made. Thanks, Minx Vintage – Athens, Georgia!]. This outfit really came to life with its’ accessories. A pair of clear gold fleck ‘Wave’ sunglasses and a color-blocked black and brown cross-body bag liven things up as do today’s vinyl picks:
