03.10.13 | Spring 2013 Lookbook; Chelsea

Lookbook Collection 1000

Spring is here which means colors and light fabrics and if Seattlelites are lucky, sun! That doesn’t stop Chelsea here from showing off her spring style here in my first lookbook post of the new year.

We sifted through her wardrobe to find some of her favorite pieces. Many of these styles can be put togther at minimal cost. You just need to explore your local consignment shops and vintage boutiques. In Chelsea’s case, some of her accessories also came from street fairs during her travels abroad.

Pairing pinks and purples with her patterned skirt, Chelsea shows that bold wears well this spring. Pairing the pink sweater (consignment shop) with pink shoes from Forever 21 and the purple belt with purple headband from Fuego she creates flowing color schemes broken up by the neutral navy blue skirt from Wet Seal. The dreamcatcher necklace adds a bit of Chelsea’s personality. She caught this gem on the streets of LA.

The second look here shows that beige and brown tones can go together. This daring flowing spring dress was found at a consignment store. Throw on some matching heel boots from Journeys and a belt, and you’re ready for that afternoon coffee date. The necklace was handmade in Spain using recycled wine bottle caps. Beautiful accent piece to this simplistic, but stylish ensemble.

Chelsea is a hairstylist that I’ve worked with for several years now. If you’d like to update that hairdo this spring, stop by the Rudy’s Barbershop in Capitol Hill where Chelsea spends her time chopping mops!

12.16.12 | Have a Vintage Holiday Season!

As 2012 comes to a conclusion, I reflect back on a year of changes, obstacles, and challenges that have tested my resolve, my art, my creativity. Without challenges, there is no innovation. Without obstacles, motivation is lost. Change dares you to create again and again.

I look forward to 2013 as a new year, another start. I am encouraged by what is ahead, and I will continue to reinvent myself, turning the page while appreciating and learning from the chapters already written.

Dani May embodies the spirit of the season in this vintage pin up style. She was a joy to work with and an amazing personality and her smile lights up a room. In the spirit of the holidays, enjoy her pin up set. We could all use a little Dani May in our lives!
