Funky for Fall: Mixing the Unexpected

My favorite clothing compliment sounds something like this, "I love what you have on, but I never would have put that together!". That is the basis for most of my outfits I wear going out. Keep trying things until it works.

I just bought this Plastic Island jacket at a boutique upstate... Of course I got it on sale. I mixed it with my friends Forever 21 tube top and spandex leggings with zipper detail.

I grabbed a bunch of bracelets that I haven't worn in quite some time. Mostly the leather cuff, are those still cool? Who cares, I loved the bad ass feel of it mixed with my vintage crystal jewelry. I have kept it in the back of my jewelry box for a while now waiting for it to re-enter my accessory life.

I paired it with another vintage find, clip on earrings that look like they are made to go with a bad poofy dress from the '80s. It only proves that when styled with the right items (like Rayban aviators), you can make anything bad ass. 

These boots were made for walking by Boutique 9. They are suede and have a high platform making them actually pretty comfortable. I hate high heels so for me to say that really does mean something!

I too enjoy wearing edgy pieces with vintage ones. I have a few cameo necklaces and a neat watch I snagged at an antique store ($5) that I'll use to add an unexpected element to my outfit. Love it!
