I bet you would have never pegged me for a football fan.
I. LOVE. Football.
It started when I was a kid. My dad and I would always watch the 49er games together. One of my fondest memories was their Super Bowl win agains the Chargers. When I found this t-shirt at Static Vintage, I knew it had to be mine!
This Lands End peter pan collar shirt is my new favorite Crossroads find. It’s a tiny bit big, but It’s still great for layering.
You may not see it, but there are Hello Kitty heads all over this faux leather skirt! I like that I can pawn it off as a plain old skirt, but when you look up close, BAM! There she is!
And of course, this wouldn’t be a San Francisco 49er post without a little Kapernicking. Ok, so it’s more me screaming at my muscle, but check out my guns!
I can’t wait until Sunday! Who will be the NFC champions? Well, I might be biased, but I think that’s a no brainer.
I had a blast playing dress up with Urbanity, so I went back for another shoot! Jessie Marie and I were practically in shock when we discovered these Chanel heels fit me! Given this opportunity, I thought it might be fun to try a Parisian look.
This cropped Miu Miu sweater is absolutely adorable! Not to mention very tiny! I’m glad it had enough stretch to it. To achieve that “I’m just going for a romantic stroll along the Champs Elysees” look, I paired it with this shimmering Erica Tanov skirt. Très chic!
And now, for a shoe close up! Amazing, non? I’m estimating they’re from the late 1980’s or the early 1990’s. The supple leather with that pop of printed satin makes for a simply superb shoe!And yes, you can find all of these treasures at Urbanity! Be sure to scope out their online store and keep your peepers peeled for future PJA + Urbanity collaborations!
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!
Thursday night, the other Jessie and I took a detour to Indian Rock after work. Evenings seem to be the only time these two busy gals can get together for a photo shoot (that is, unless, we want to start waking up at the crack of dawn! Yikes.) Trying to find solitude proved to be challenging seeing as this is a very popular location to watch the sunset.
This Levi’s chambray dress is by far one of my favorite dresses. I picked it up at Fillmore & 5th about a year ago now and it certainly has served me well. It seems like I’ve been living in it all summer and its so easy to convert into fall.
My coworkers told me this jacket looked like it belonged to a grandmother from the 70’s. They could be right. I picked it up at Thrift Town for five bucks. I loved the color combination and the pattern. I didn’t really know what I was going to do with it and I normally don’t spend money on something I don’t know how to wear, but I’m glad I took a chance on this gem.
I found these boots lurking in the depths of Ambiance‘s sale section. I had been looking for the perfect, nude colored bootie for quite some time. The gold accent on this pair was definitely the deal maker. The cain-linked ring was a whim purchase from Jewelmint. I was won over by the rose gold tone and it’s unusual style. The arrow bracelet was another Ambiance find.
It’s here! My first outfit post! My awesome photographer and amazing friend, another Jessie of course, helped me stake out this gem of a location in Golden Gate Park. Such a beautiful setting on a perfect day nonetheless. I couldn’t have asked for a better day and better company for my first shoot! We were so pleased with the results!
Decided to dive in with this holiday and go all red, white and blue!
