star wars rebel scum darth vader gray black white buffalo plaid stud outfit ootd whatiwore2day

I realize it’s a little confusing to wear a Rebel Scum jacket and a Dark Side sweater. Which side am I on? My side. (Which, honestly has more to do with being a rebel than being dark.) For 2017, I plan to be true to myself, no matter how counter that may be to the […]

Winter White
plaid red pattern mix scarf disney buttons pins ootd whatiwore2day

I buy very little white. I’m really messy and I don’t think it looks good on me. But I’m giving this thrifted, open-weave tunic a chance. I have to admit that I love the way white looks with red. And now I’m thinking about pairing it with my white, faux fur vest (also thrifted) for […]

Come Thrifting With Me: Fair Oaks Thrift Town
thrift town second hand store thrifting shopping sacramento

Thrift Town was the very first thrift store I visited in Sacramento. I moved into our house a month before the household goods arrived. I slept on an air mattress, in an empty room, with the five cats. This was the perfect time to have the floors redone (tile in place of carpet and the […]

Thrifting in Dior

vintage fur collar pleather jacket ootd outfit

Let’s be honest: this jacket is a joke. It did nothing to keep me warm in freezing temps, walking around midtown. But it’s really cute, right? And I managed to zip it up. Well, zip it up to my boobs. I relied on this vintage fur from Beefy’s aunt to keep the upper half covered. […]

Green Velvet Red Lips

We spent Christmas Day with some barely relatives, at Beefy’s cousin’s husband’s sister’s house. You’d never know we were so distantly related by the warmth of their welcome or the spread on the table (crab legs, prime rib, and pecan pie). Hospitality like that deserved my festive best. Sweater, vintage consignment. Dress, Parker (consignment). Boots, […]

World Peace in 2017
5th grade Kasmira

As we prepare to close out 2016, I’d like to do so with a joyful and optimistic attitude. Kindness and tolerance crosses all cultural and religious barriers. I learned this as a child, but sometimes need to remind myself as an adult. Thirty years ago, everyone in my 5th-grade class was required to write a […]
