Fascination Street


You know as well as I do by now that I love vintage fashion.  But sometimes I also err on the side of classic and lady-like fashion, which is why I'm so glad Chicwish exists.  I got this 'Wander in Paris' skirt over the summer, but am only now officially showing it to the blogosphere.  Currently, it's out of stock, but in case they bring it back here's the link.  I've raved about Chicwish before, but this skirt is extra special as it's even sturdier than the other fabrics used on other skirts I own.  The print is also super beautiful in person; the photos don't give it justice.  Rounding out this outfit is a shirt from Old Navy and shoes by Guess that I found at Marshall's a few years back.  

One of my favorite looks ever is a midi skirt with a button down, especially one that's tied in the front, which is why I chose that for this look.  It's very reminiscent of 1970s/1980s Ralph Lauren-esq style, and therefore I feel never goes out of fashion.  



Lately I've been trying to remember to be thankful in any given moment.  It could be dumb incident like getting a parking spot up front or something bigger like narrowly avoiding an accident.  It's so easy to remember the bad times and events, that sometimes we forget how the smallest (or biggest) strokes of luck can make or break our day.  I'm at least trying to be mindful of the good stuff.  Care to join me?


The name of this blog post is a Cure song.  The Cure is one of my all-time favorite bands and they always make me so happy.  In my (official) inaugural blog post meets song title post, I chose the song "Always Love" by Nada Surf.  Some One Tree Hill fans geeked out over this, so if you guys are still reading I'm sure you associate The Cure with Peyton Sawyer a little bit!!  The show One Tree Hill is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine, but I really do love the characters.  And though I'm not one to insist that all skeptics should watch the show, I will ALWAYS defend the music of the show.  The Veils?  Mclusky?  The Cure?  The National?  Tegan and Sara?  Goodness gracious, I'm short changing how impressive the show's music catalogue was because the list goes on and on and is any indie fan's dream soundtrack.  I was a fan of The Cure well before OTH, but I also never took offense to Peyton being such a die hard fan of them.  OTH geek out over!  I chose this song because the print of this skirt has maps and streets of Paris all over it.  Why not call this post "Fascination Street"?!

I've recently added two pages to this blog, one that catalogues posts named after songs and another that catalogues all of the concert stories.  Click the links on to see for yourself!  Happy Friday!

  11. This look is darn pretty! I love how you paired the midi skirt with a tied button down - and those heels! They're gorgeous. I really need to order from Chicwish one of these days...I don't believe I've seen a single thing that I didn't like from that site!

  13. I fell off with One tree hill a while back but I always loved their music selection. A lot of the shows that air on that channel (the CW) have excellent music.

  14. Really loving your looks more so than usual lately! Maybe It's all the printed skirts ;) The tied top and the mint heels keep it fresh. And I love finding music through TV shows - I think I first got into it with the OC and now so many series, especially on the WB, have great music. I'm constantly using shazam while watching TV!

  15. Love your outfit! The skirt is so cute and those shoes are really gorgeous! They remind me of the shoes I wore on my wedding day :D I love the Cure! I could hear the opening rift of the song in my head just reading your post title! ;) I had no idea they played the Cure so much in One Tree Hill. I never watched that show but was a huge fan of CW shows... I may just have to check it out!
