When you’re selling them in Target for nearly 30 bucks, I’d say the trend has reached a new level of crazy. And if you’re planning on going to the thrift shop for a last minuet ugly Christmas sweater party, forget about it. All those were snatched up and posted on Etsy for at least 20 bucks a pop. Well, thankfully Modcloth provides more adorable and tasteful options to choose from.
Find all of these and so much more holiday cheer at Modcloth.

This Thankful Thursday, I would like to give thanks for winter layers!
I know, I know. You’re all probably sick of hearing about how much I LOVE to pile on my cozy sweaters and jackets, but I know you San Francisco dwellers will agree that dressing in layers is a necessity. Living in this unpredictable climate has made me a master at layered fashion. Here are a few of my favorite layered looks and tips to fashionably maximize your comfort in these chilly winter months.
I love the look of mixed textures and that cape look is definitely making a comeback. Lately, fashion forward ladies and gentlemen have been snapped rocking their oversized coats in this cape-like fashion. To achieve the perfect, effortlessly-chic girl about town vibe, throw on a chunky knit sweater and casually drape your wool coat over your shoulders.
Fur (preferably faux or vintage) has always had a luxurious appeal. A fur vest can add an unexpected, funky element to an otherwise basic outfit. As with my everyday wear, I like to mix feminine and masculine elements. Wear your favorite fur piece over a frilly dress. Extra cool points for topping it all off with a military jacket.
Scarves are the easiest way to warm up and the simplest addition of color, texture, and patterns. I have acquired quite the scarf collection, myself. You can’t go wrong with a knit infinity scarf or one of printed silk. Dare to be bold? Try wrapping up in not one but two scarves!
I hope you’re thankful for these handy layering tips! Stay warm out there!
This Sunday, despite our late start, was spent wandering through racks of vintage treasures at the Alemany Flea Market.
The conditions for pictures weren’t the best. It was super bright and sunny and very windy! Again, my hair was blowing all over the place. Thank goodness for lipstick and photoshop!
So many adorable trinkets and doo-dads! I loved these little vintage avon perfume and lotion bottles. This one was shaped like a little toad stool with a frog prince sitting on top! The only thing deterring me from buying the lot was the contents inside. Sixty year old beauty products do not keep well.
By the time we arrived, half of the vendors were beginning to pack up. Note for next time: Bring more cash and arrive EARLY!
There were so many racks full of awesome sweaters and jackets. This sweater is ideal for throwing on over a long sleeve dress when you something cozy and chic. One of my favorite finds was a hunter green sweater featuring a fox hunter and his hounds. Too bad it was just a little too big and a little too pilled for my taste.
Expect to find a TON of great vintage. One booth in the far back of the market (or front given you entered the correct) stood out as the favorite. This tent was full of amazing vintage pieces and everything I picked up had a $10 price tag. Jessie and I got to play with some of the best pill box hats and vintage veils! Definitely a great place to hit up if your looking for a halloween get up.
Oh look! I’m a gif!
