Mom's old clothes.

My mom's old top; American Eagle jeans; H&M flats; Fossil watch

Yes, that is a lens cap in my pocket.

I wore this outfit to work the other day. This top was my mom's from back in the '80s. I'm not used to such a high neck-line, and the sleeves are a bit poofy, but I just love the flap-closure at the front. When she saw me wearing it, she asked, "is this shirt considered vintage or just old?" ...You know what? I have no idea. Anyone got any idea when something becomes vintage? Help a sista out.

I would also say mother's day dinner was a great success. The food actually tasted decent, I didn't burn anything, and I didn't make anyone sick = success! Also, I made lemon-coconut cookies and I didn't burn them either! This is an achievement for me because I tend to over-cook foods or time the dinner really poorly (i.e. rice is ready and meat isn't even half done). Somehow it just worked yesterday. Yessssssss.

Did everyone have a nice weekend? 


  1. I love that black blouse - so pretty!

  2. What an awesome blouse from your mom! I think it's considered vintage if it's 10 years or older. Glad you had a successful dinner!

  4. Did you redo your layout? It looks different! I'm sorry if it has been this way for a while and that I can't really tell what changed but I haven't been around for a while :( Anywho, I like this outfit ^^ and you wouldn't believe the amount of photos I had to throw in the trash because I had things in my pockets like cellphones and lens caps, haha. x
