I went to a pumpkin festival today and my sister told me that a lady with a fancy camera was taking pictures of my feet, so I thought I’d share my layered fall look.
This is my favorite new vintage store find. It makes me think of French little Madeline.
The label says “Growing Girls, size 16 1/2.”
Do you ever see something that you absolutely have to have? I mean it becomes almost a goal in your life to own whatever it is? That’s how I felt about these glasses. Usually that feeling goes away, but not for these. I mean look at them!
They are totally ridiculous, but I HAD to have them. So I bought them! And I have to say, it was a good purchase. At first I didn’t know if I could pull them off. I started having cold feet and they hadn’t even come in the mail. But they are so extremely crazy that nobody in the world could wear them and not look a little silly. And because of the unifying factor, everybody could wear them!
So now for review…
- Well made: although they are “made in china” the quality is actually really good. Even though they look like something from a joke shop they feel really sturdy. All of the buttons and stuff are anchored into the plastic. So I don’t think there is any chance of them popping off unless you were treating the glasses carelessly.
- Unique: these glasses are definitely something special and I sure haven’t seen anything else like them.
- Surprisingly wearable: I wasn’t sure what the hell I was going to wear these with when I first got them. But I have found that they work with a majority of my clothes. I just try and stick with more simple outfits so that I don’t look to busy. But if you are the type of person who can pull of busy/ tacky looks, I’m sure you could wear these with almost anything.
- Uncomfortable at first: the glasses are pretty heavy and they kept sliding down my nose. The nose pads ended up on my ala (http://tinyurl.com/7z4xaf8) and actually changed the look of my nose. This was easy enough to fix though. I just bent the pad arms in a bit. I can’t see this being much of a problem for someone with a bigger nose.
- Super reflective: the frame and lens a really reflective and act like those spy glasses where you can see things behind you. This doesn’t bother me much and after a day of wearing them I got completely used to it. But if you get motion sick really easily, or if you have a super short attention span, these glasses might not be for you.
- Price: these glasses are not cheap. With a price tag of $220 they are definitely on the expensive end of the glasses spectrum (captain obvious speaking).
In conclusion, these are some bad ass specs. I would totally recommend getting a pair if you have the money and you are sure you’ll wear them. Don’t let the cons scare you, they are mostly fixable and are outweighed by how awesome these glasses are.

My mom found these jeans in her closet and decided to let me try them.
They’re wide legged and slightly high-waisted as well as perfectly fitted, so they pair nicely with a loose or frilly top.
Sorry for the bad quality pics though :/
According to March’s issue of TeenVogue, the Peter Pan Collar is definitely trending for spring.
The name brings images of old London and Neverland into my head, but the look it’s self has an adorable vintage feel that’s now coming back as a sweet, classy twist on today’s shirts.
The look is being explored and modernized by designers, as displayed by Lily Collins on the cover of Seventeen Magazine’s March issue, where she wore a a Peter Pan Collar-shaped necklace made up of fun colorful beads.
The trend has been popping up on runways for a while and is starting to catch on with the rest of us.
I’m really excited about this whimsical style. I don’t yet have any of these collars in my closet, but I’m definitely keeping an eye out for some. ~Constance
Lately I’ve been kind of obsessed with leather jackets. There like the chuck taylor of the outerwear world because the more you wear them, the better they look. I’ve been wearing my dads old bomber jacket from the early 90’s, but I would really like to get my hands on a racer jacket or a biker jacket (not big zipper-y type, but the more modern pocket-y type like the Goosecraft one).
Hello tumblr people!
My name is Aaron. I like shopping at second hand and vintage stores, toile de jouy, well tailored menswear, flowy cardigans, combat boots, and things that I can’t afford but pretend like I’m going to buy someday. I look forward to documenting the growth in my personal style, and meeting new tumblr peeps!
I hope you enjoy our blog. Please feel free to give us feedback on any content we post, and the blog itself.
Hullo, I’m Constance.
I’m really into menswear rights now. Sweaters (really just adore any type of sweaters,) shoes, shirts, all that good stuff. Also I really love vintage and retro stuff, particularly the 20’s-30’s and the 50’s-60’s. Obviously there’s loads more I love, but this is just a little intro to myself.
You’ll get to know me by what I post I reckon.
