Hi hi, Kennedy here!
You know when you’re sick, your mind won’t stop racing about everytthhiinngg and life just isn't super fun? Hmm yup, I’m there right now. Writing this blog couldn’t have come at a better time for me, because as cringy and slightly shameful as it is, clothes really do make me feel better. So if you’re like me, caught in the wind-whipping, heart-aching, anxiety-riddled storm that is life...take a moment, take a breath and let's get lost for a moment and remember that colourful threads and red boots will always be there for us.
Oooh and fuzzy sweaters…
Okay is it just me or is this something out a Dr. Seuss book? I’m not sure I’ve ever read a Dr. Seuss book but I’m pretty sure all the trees/hills/creatures look like this and I’m here for it.
The fuzz almost makes you squirm in an “ew” kind of way, yet makes you want to cuddle up on the sofa with a hot tea at the same time. I dunno. I like it though.
Does anyone else have a hard time defining “vintage”? Like what qualifies what? What's the timeline? When’s the cutoff? I’ve decided that this has become much too confusing and pretentious. So I say, “be free vintage lovers”! Call it whenever you want, as long as it’s sometime before....2010? Wow the world is getting old. Cue VINTAGE sweater…
Oof these colours have me drooling!
I feel like a tag like this is a vintage stamp of approval in itself.
And the back is different! Love the checkers.
On the train of all things cozy…
My goodness this scarf feels like Christmas morning. The only time when icicles and snow covered everything is appropriate and endearing. Do you hear me weather gods?!
Throw this baby on top of some dress pants and call it fashion with these grey pinstripe beauties.
These are gorgeous. High waisted and wide leg. They have a faint cream pinstripe pattern which softens the whole pant and gives a cozy feel. Also they’re wool!
More grey loveliness.
Guys. Free People has this whole hippy-oversized-I-don’t-care-but-still-look-great thing down and I'm so grateful. Love the inside out look with the seams stitched on the outside. And ribbing is definitely my love language.
K and then you flip it over and you’re like, “I get to look like I don’t care and still look great AND sexy?” Too far. Check out that open back!
Always a happy moment when Frye boots pay a visit!
You can’t go wrong with a classic like these. I’m the kind of person that has all the funky footwear but then only ever wears the one pair of normal shoes I own. Sooo maybe I’m the kind of person that needs these boots… hmmm interesting…
Okay this is exactly what I’m talking about…
The kind of boots you don’t -but also definitely do- need. These are Stuart Weitzman. And I’m not sure what’s happening but it’s like raining Weitzman boots in the store right now (you have to come in and check out a leopard pair we have!). These are way too cool with their trio material thing going on. Wooden heel and half leather/half suede upper.
Free People showing off and making a second appearance.
This sweater is the perfect colour, in between a mustard and brown. Loving the balloon sleeves.
And LOVING the chiffon ribbon braided into the fabric here.
Okay, cuteness overload with this half-moon shaped, star covered... clutch? Makeup bag? Pencil case? Not sure. But it’s pink and cute so it’s okay if it’s impractical and confusing. We forgive you and accept you clutch thingy!
Entering the polarizing and sensitive world of fur coats. Except maybe not, because this is fake fur? But then it’s like, what if people think it’s real? And then am I still being an ambassador for fur coats even if it’s not real because no one would even really know? Gosh this is exhausting. The great thing about this faux fur coat is that it doesn’t have that “I just skinned an animal for this” look to it.
In fact, the faux material is pretty obvious and this doesn’t even really resemble a typical fur coat in my opinion.
However, it definitely makes you feel like a young girl that’s just stumbled through a wardrobe and found herself in a winter wonderland that she is unknowingly the queen of. And yes, I am speaking from personal experience of feeling this.
Guys, I know you’re sick of literally everyone asking you this. But I need help. I have no idea what to be for halloween and I think I'm in danger of wearing all black and drawing whiskers on my face. I don’t know how people enjoy dressing up for halloween. Like this is the most stressful holiday everrrr. Is my costume unique? Did I try too hard? Did I try enough? If my skirt is shorter than my knees will people think I’m just trying to get attention? If you’re one of those people that just lovvveee Halloween can you please come in to the store on Wednesday morning and help me!?
