Senior Moments ~ Class of 2013 : Take Two!

" Senior Smiles "

Starting the new year as a Senior!

Yellow shirt with mint shorts.  Great combination! Photographs well and shows off that summer tan for those senior pictures. We put a tan beaded necklace with it for  little "somthin' somethin'". The outfit remains casual but not boring.

Silliness is a must! You have to put a little fun in things or life would be boring!

Bought an inexpensive evening gown to play in the sand and water. A five dollar evening gown. If we ruined it , who cares? It was five dollars. Think about finding something unique when taking your senior pictures. Have fun with it!

" I'm a senior this year....OMG!"

Love black and white photos!

" I'm thinking of all I have ahead of me......"

"Senior Status! Finally! We will conquer the world and make a difference forever!"  Have a great year Class of 2013! It's only the beginning!

Senior Moments ~ Class of 2013: Take One!

Class of 2013

The time is here...the senior year.

It comes so fast.

Forever 21 blouse, forever 21 skinny jeans, rue 21 Neon pink flats. Love these colors together! Bright and bold!

Earrings Rue 21, Necklace Rue 21. The color of the necklace stands out from the blouse...great contrast. Accessories don't have to be " matchy matchy". Contrast is good. More impacting! Remember this when getting your senior pics taken, it photographs well!

Hang in there Seniors!

Show a little humor in everything......don't take yourself too serious!

Reach for your dreams, they're insight.....

......your future is in your hands," iiiitt's good!"
Enjoy the ride!

Modern Vintage Love Affair!

The old and new. Modern and Vintage. The two go hand in hand with this look....a love affair, if you will. Love, love, love putting two " times" together. Then and the now. A match made in heaven. Well not really,  just a match made up in our closet.

You will not believe this, but this is a 1950-1960's maternity top. We got it downtown in a Vintage clothing store. It is precious! I altered the top by taking it in on the sides so it wasn't huge, still leaving it loose. Love the pockets and tie at the collar.

The purse is also vintage. got it at a thrift store. you've seen it before in another post. Go to the archives and revisit.

REFURBISHED!  We sprayed painted the heel and tip of these yellow pumps in a soft, gloss aqua. Love the yellow and aqua together.

Yellow skinny jeans~Rue 21, refurbished yellow pumps~Rue 21

Look at all the pretty detail of this top. The fabric, the color, the little white buttons, and of course the tie. The earrings are from Rue 21 also. They look like vintage, but they are not.

Vintage clothing is very hot right now. Even the design of clothing today is mimicking the past. I wonder sometimes about who may have carried that old hand bag, wore that old blouse, sported the old jewelry that now belongs to us. What were they like, and did they love fashion as much as we do.
