Happy Valentine’s Day!

My mom bought these boots in Paris in 1977, on her honeymoon.  So when they eventually made their way into my closet, I was a little bit obsessed.  I think they still have a vintage-y look, but they’re so timeless that they literally could have been made last year.  As much as I love picking up fun, trendy items, it’s hard to dispute that the best purchases are quality things that you take care of and that last forever.  I need to think about what in my closet might be passed on to my daughter some day…

Also, don’t forget to entire the giveaway between now and Thursday!

Vintage boots, Topshop blazer and tank top, Michael Kors bag, Forever 21 necklace and headband, J. Brand jeans.

    Wish I still had my suede vest with fringe and beads to give to my daughter. I remember wearing it alot in the 70’s.

    I recently received a tribal-inspired white blouse from my mom…it was hers in the 70s.  It’s definitely a fun statement piece!

    That’s so neat! I wish my mum kept more of her stuff! Stories and history makes most things better
