Grunge à la mode: Like a PUNK

4 Sep

I’m a Pacific Northwest chic at heart! I love fresh salmon, mountains and evergreen trees are comforting, I can correctly pronounce Snoqualmie, and sometimes I crave being in the rain. Yep. Seattle is in my DNA. I’m beyond pumped that the grunge-style (inspired by the 90’s Seattle music scene) is back on the map. When I was in the 6th grade, I was obsessed with all things plaid, leather, and doc martins. I lived in my doc martin shoes. Oh the memories!

This time around the grunge-style is bit more modern with fashion lovers pairing their plaid skirts, utilitarian jackets, and edgy studded heels. Its the perfect combination of feminine and punk. Hey you only live once. Are we still using ‘yolo’?

My love for Thrift Town & Bargain World

12 Oct

I'm letting you in on a HUGE secret, my 2 favorite thrift stores in the world! Yes, I said it in the world! I've shopped in thrift stores in Paris, Italy, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Miami….the list could go on and on. I must give this disclamier that Paris and New York have the MOST beautiful garments in their second hand stores the only down fall is the price is so high you might as well purchase it brand new. I usually do a little skip when i go into Thrift Town in San Francisco and Bargain World in Tacoma, Wa.  Both stores carry an obscene amount of name brand labels, vintage dresses and the prices are extremely low! How low you may ask…. well try $6 for a gorgeous burgundy leather jacket!  Oh, here's one more perk if your in the military you get 10% off your purchase at Bargain World.  HAPPY HUNTING!!!!

Bargain World: 15615 Pacific Ave S, Tacoma, WA (253) 536-2557 ‎

Thrift Town: 2101 Mission St, San Francisco, CA (415) 861-1132 ‎
