Bundle Up
With the weather here in Orange County finally feeling like more like winter, my mind is on finally transitioning my Summer wardrobe into Winter. Just a couple photos to inspire me... My favvvvorite look is the first photo. I love the soft, feminine yet tough feel of the outfit. The soft pink bow top, chunky gray sweater cardigan and polka dot sheer tights are given an edge with the paring of the leather shorts and motorcycle booties. My favorite part of the look is the vintage leather satchel, which is the perfect way to complete this outfit, giving it that " I didn't try too hard" appeal. These looks have got me ready to start my search for my favorite coats and sweaters this season, better late than never!
Hope everybody had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Drape Yourself in Vintage

Mine! I got so many compliments on this
sheer lace maxi skirt!

My new favorite store has got to be Drapes Vintage nestled in Downtown Santa Ana's, Artist's Village. With it's urban yet eclectic and bohemian vibe the Artist Village it is the spot in Orange County where you can catch an amazing Chicken Waldorf Sandwich at The Gypsy Den, meet some talented artists at the Santa Ana Art Walk, and YES! do some awesome vintage shopping at Drapes. The first time I walked into Drapes it was a dream come true, I had to look at everything in the store for fear of missing something I'd fall in Vintage Love with. Tara Jimenez, is the owner of Drapes Vintage. Tara is a FIDM alumni and has been in the fashion industry for years. Sharing her love for vintage clothing with both her mother and grandmother, Tara's passion for vintage evolved into Drapes Vintage. Tara handpicks each piece and I have to say she has amazing taste and her eye for detail is right on target. There is so much to look at and choose from... women's, men's, shoes and accessories, they have it all here at Drapes Vintage. Whenever I pick up a vintage piece at Drapes, I can see the quality in it and pride that Tara has for her store. Aside from being Santa Ana's top vintage destination, Drapes Vintage is also home to one of a kind pieces of art from local artists. Where ever you look there are stunning, one of a kind art that will inspire you. Drapes Vintage is definitely a MUST on your next vintage shopping trip.
