What’s new at Frequency Vintage: the oops addition

Standard

Okay, first I have to say, I did something bad.  I deleted all my illustrations that I have done for this blog.  They are gone forever =(.  Just letting you know if you were wondering why there are a ton of image gaps going back from this post.

So now the positive: Although I knew better, I wasn’t backing up images.  This is just a reminder of the importance of doing so.

LESSON OF THE WEEK:  BACKUP YOUR INFO!

Now onto the fun stuff:
new super retro accessories at Frequency Vintage,
all $50 and below.

$17.99 for these killer shades.  Really fun statement piece.

$24.99 for an extremely unique enameled vintage Mushroom Pendant Necklace. Super Psychedelic.

$16.99 for these great striped shades, super chic, wonderfully unique.

$15.99 for this delicate chain fringe vintage necklace.

I am loving all these pieces.  The shades are really getting me pumped for warmer weather.  Coming soon, more shades, more bags, and more DRESSES!!!

Must Have Monday: Treggings

Standard

I posted awhile ago about how crazy women wear leggings as pants made me.  And then I heard from a friend (she saw them while visiting the UK) that they started to make these things called treggings (trousers + leggings.)  I instantly thought “nope.”  No way, these still don’t count as pants.

BUT, then it happened, I saw them in person and got a pair myself at H&M well 2.  (They seem very hard to find except in the UK and UK online shops, so I was surprised and delighted)  In my book, they count as pants and can be warn with a top that doesn’t cover the bootay.  And, they come in all sorts of colors and styles.

MUST HAVE MONDAY: Treggings! 

$50 & Below Favorites/ones that I could find online:

$14.99 Delia’s 

$34.95 New Look 

I pride myself in offering my readers many options for online shopping, but this trend seems to be a bit hard to find.  Anyone got a good source?  I got an orange and a royal blue pair from H&M so the funky colors are out there.  Share your secrets if you have any, please.

Also, I won’t avoid the elephant in the room.  Many still qualify these treggings as leggings (not me).  So let’s put a vote out there to see where we stand on this: fashion oo la la or faux pas.

And while we are at it, anymore thoughts on leggings?

Beat the brrrrreeze

Standard

After two days of “serious” postings, I need a fashion fix. 

I really like my new winter coat, but almost didn’t buy it because it lacks a hood.  I’ve had a hooded coat forever so was always able to skip the hat and rest the hood ever so gently on my perfect braid, leaving my ears warm and no hair out of place.  Wearing the new coat today, naked ears, waiting for the El that seemed to never come, I would worn a trash bag on my head to cut the wind.  brrrrrr. 

Now that I have regained feeling in my ears,  lets take a look at some chic option that will keep out the chill and won’t undo the do for $50 and below:

$25.99 Michael Kors

$21.82 ASOS 

$24.00 Youleena Boutique

 $35.00 a Cats Nest

Okay, I admit it, the headbands may take some careful placement to avoid a day long hair disaster, but they’re so cute and worth making style choices to fit the piece!

How do you stay warm and “cool” in the winter?

 

Must Have Mondays: Layers

Standard

Ummm, yeah, it’s cold.  And how better to fight the chill then with great layering?  So put away those Uggs and sweats and keep it chic with these great additions.  All $50 and below.

Cable Knit over Button Down

 $45.45 ASOS

$29.90 Forever 21 

Leg Warmers over Tights

$40 Betsey Johnson 

$30 Mia Baggali

Scarves over Anything

$38 Nordstrom 

$44 the Spotted Fawn 

Hope this inspires to layer rather than lounge this winter.  Stay warm!

WAIT!  One more thing, something that has been driving me nuts.  First, I have to say that I am often wrong and make bad style choices and mistakes which is just part of taking fashion risks.  So you can choose to ignore me, obviously, but seriously ladies, leggings are not pants.  I thought the fad would fade, but I saw way too much booty this weekend to think it is true.  Big, small, short or tall, if you make the choice to wear leggings, make sure your top comes down below your cheeks (I know you think they aren’t see through but they are, I promise).  If you want to show it off, wear a tight skinny jean, or shorts with tights, anything but uncovered booty with leggings.

One more time, let’s say it together: leggings aren’t pants!
