a picnic with Marc


Oh how I love a plaid dress for picnicing! This Marc by Marc Jacobs is one of my favorites so far. I couldn't decide whether I liked the Cole Haan clutch or tote better, today i want both!!

Little Miss Sunshine by Anthropologie


Anthropologie's take on Sunshine hues is a little more like a hazy sky than blue with fluffy clouds, but I'm a sucker for anything yellow whether it be muted or intense!

Carrie Bradshaw is a fictional character.


Okay, here we go... 
Carrie Bradshaw is a fictional character on a television program. I love her, you love her, but she's not real. Let us come together and give each other strength to not fall prey to ridiculous fashion moments like these shown above. Today is the first post in a new category for Today I Want, "What the What?"

Some of you already know how I feel about chambray. Why not take a fabric that already blows and make it into an oversized cropped leg painters coverall. Fantastic...

Can anyone tell me where on earth (other than a Lady Gaga lookalike party) you would wear these? 

Three letters ladies, U.T.I.

It's really like the designer just wanted to throw every bell and whistle into one pair of pants.
Faded denim, extra long button fly, harem legs, cropped cuff, low rise, detail stitching.....

Vintage swimsuits to die for!


These suits are on the pricey side, but the condition is so excellent they are totally worth the money! I love that GlamourSurf even has found images of these suits back in the day. Super rad!

Thrifty Thursday! five pieces for $88.98!!




I was so excited to find this vintage Steve Alva shirt, it is a youth 5/6 though, strictly for DIY'ers or a kid. Perfect ensemble for a day of record shopping or finding some shade to chill at the skate park while Mr. EP skates and destroys!

Strawberry Shortcake


Super love this vintage dress! The description says it has a scoop back, but they did not picture it! Ugh! It is exactly my size, so if anyone wants to buy it for me so I can investigate the scoop back issue, that'd be awesome!

oh vivienne, i just love everything you do.




I know this color palate is not quite summer aproros, but I love Vivienne Westwood and just HAD to feature this dress! These are the things I would want to wear with it, but you could definitely make it more summery with a creamy offwhite or sandy cardigan, a straw hat and clutch, and some bright strappy sandals.


Check it out! I saw watching So You Think You Can Dance on 6/17 and look what Cat Deeley was wearing!
