Vintage Style: How to Wear 90's Florals & What Guys Really Think About Flower Crowns

I know 90's florals bring to mind that cute grunge combo look everyone's wearing these days, but that's not me. I own no Doc Martens, although I drooled over them when I was a kid. No, I'm more of a "skipping through fields of daisies" kind of floral chick, and always have been.

Evidence:
My family, circa 1998. Note the black dress, yellow flower, and goofy grin.




I swear I didn't plan it.  But it's all there, down to the cheesy smile.



Vintage huaraches. I love these things.



15-minute DIY flower crown: Just grab a forsythia branch from Jo-Ann & cut two stems off. Twist them together and wrap a ribbon around that. Tie it 'round your noggin. Dunzo.

Note: Men seem to think these are weird, in my experience. I was wearing this the other day, and my brother-in-law come into the room, saw me, & involuntary laughed at me. I now only wear my flower crown to bed. (No I don't.)*

Vintage Valentine's Day Fashion: One Modern Dress, 3 Vintage Ways

First fashion post ever! I'm really excited to bring you this series where I show you some of my sweet vintage fashion finds! Excuse my photo quality while I learn the ins & outs of it all.

Look 1: Simple & Classic
I got this dress for a mere $27 at Forever21.  I love the gorgeous merlot color.



I wanted to jazz it up with a little bit of vintage, so I sprinkled on a New Eve Locket:


And my favorite vintage woven loafers:




Look 2: V-Day Date!

This repurposed bullet shell & quartz crystal necklace gives the look a harder edge:


 Look 3: The Office 

I added a vintage pencil skirt in a coordinating pattern and vintage black leather belt for a fun & work-appropriate look:




 Outtake just to show you that I'm human. But you probably guessed that.
