*Striped Short Sleeved Top* ~ This candy cane classic has a sailor girl twist - picture cute triangular head scarves, with big white framed glasses on a boat dock, waving away your sailor sweetheart. With a cute built-in belt, who could resist?
*White Tie-Up Bustier* ~ This Marilyn Monroe inspired bustier is sexy, while at the same time, endearingly classy. It's feminine neckline and detailed embroidery give it a soft, sultry touch of glam. I think I'm in love.
*Wide-Brim Camel Hat* ~ Block out the sun, and bring on the fun, wearing this Pattie Boydesque top hat. Enough to jazz up the simplest of out-fits (or could even match sweetly with the bustier above!).
*Scarf Jeans* ~ Hippie hippie chic! Here's as close to authentic hippie wear as you're going to find, not coming from a second-hand store. The pale hues make it fresh and seasonal, plus, easy to pair up with a trendy peasant blouse. For the fashion queen in you.
*Mod Boatneck Dress* ~ Not only does this black and white shift make a gorgeous addition to any mod girl's wardrobe, but it *wreaks* of Chanel exquisiteness. The 2003 Spring-Summer line up for this year has seen many black and white patterns, and this cute knock-off at fraction of the price, is well worth saving up for!
*Pinstriped Jeans* ~ A personal favorite of mine, pinstriped jeans are slimming *and* uber trendy. These pair have a little bit of fading to them, with a tie waste and bootleg cut. If you're looking for an easy mix-and-match pair of jeans, this versatile style is just for you!
*Paisley Blouse* ~ This one reminds me of something straight out of Apple Boutique. It has a colorful pattern and flowy fabric. A total attention grabber!
*Retro Flower Blouse* ~ 100% cotton, and cute as can be! Here's a neat find, fellow babies.
