Color Schemes

Looks like I gravitated towards a similar color scheme again today! I've been really enjoying playing with colors in my art, stepping away from neutral skin and green grass and pairing things I wouldn't have done before like green and purple, and using more orange than I have before. Orange is an underappreciated color, imo. As usual, what I paint reflects the other aspects of my life, aesthetically and otherwise (or is it the other way around?) In an case, I've been wearing orange on more than just my lips :)

Since it's nice out again, and since my knee is starting to feel better, I hope to get outside and do more things soon. I've been watching an astounding amount of anime (on episode 320 of One Piece) and sitting in bed and painting. Which is great, but I also want to venture outside the apartment some soon, and hopefully take my camera along for documentation. This blog is, after all, somewhat of a diary for me.

Since I started working resale, my brand knowledge has gone through the roof. Last time I was at Goodwill I found myself looking at labels more than ever. I've become quite the snob about it too! Not like an "I only wear designer" snob, but now I recognize the old lady brands and the junior brands and turn up my lil nose at them! Anyway I spotted this top and was like. That's from Anthropologie. And I was right! It's super gratifying to know that you're wearing this second-hand thing that you definitely couldn't afford from a place like Anthro.

Top: Anthropologie, thrifted via Goodwill
Skirt: vintage, thrifted via Goodwill
Shoes: UO on clearance
Socks: Some Italian store, OVS I think!
Necklace: Modcloth
Pins: Kate Rowland and Me!
Glasses: Bonlook


  1. This top is super cute! What a great thrift find. I really like the texture on your skirt too. I look at the brands when thrifting for a slight indicator of quality but sometimes I find cute things that are old lady brands!

  2. Gosh, don't you just look adorable! Love the skirt. I can't wait to go shopping for some new ones soon...or possibly make some new ones

  3. Haha about the "juniors" and "old Lady" brands! I'm starting to move into some of those old lady brands for work items, but they don't always make much at my size....

    Anyway, I adore this outfit! It is playful but not out of control, colorful, girlish and yet grown-up.

  4. super cute outfit, love that skirt, I really want one like yours :)) just followed u on bloglovin!!xx
