Fashion with wheels.

Sorry I haven't written in awhile. I was down in Phuket, Thailand for a week. Being on student exchange definitly has it's perks. Cute patterned shorts, flowy romantic lace white blouses, and curly beach hair during the day. Sexy minis, vintage button ups (in which you don't button up), and cool "swedish blog messy bun" hair at night. It's quite lovely.

Our next trip is to Chiang Mai, Thailand, which is definitly more mountains then beaches. I'm excited. The clothes I'm bringing are my pretty normal routine. But there are two activities in which I am not quite sure what to wear. Though I think I have some ideas.

On the first day we are going Cycling around the scenery. But it's at the end of the day, with no time to change. So instead of completely decking myself out in spandex and a tanktop I went looking on Google. And found out that most girls wear skirts while cycling, call it good karma. Pair them with some cute leggings underneath, and your golden. While these can be any skirt, they do make some cute bike skirts you can wear, which are lovingly called a Skort. Team Estrogen has some rather ok looking ones. And my favorite happens to be the Terry Cargo Skort.

I could easily pair it with a cute vintage rolled-sleeved tee and some double-layered super long necklaces. Who says Sport can't be fashionable?

The second 'event' is the Songkran festival. Which is basically a huge water fight. It's held on the Thai New Year. And the biggest Songkran activities (aka waterfight) happen to take place in Chiang Mai, for a whole three days. It's pretty messy, since they not only throw water at you but powder as well. These are the times I thank the vintage gods for those 30cent t-shirts I found.

As totally cliche as it sounds. I'm decking myself out (with my friend Renee) in a complete camo outfit with bandanas and the two infamous blacklines on my cheeks. Because, afterall, I am still only 17. Might as well have some fun while it lasts. I can't find any pictures of what I want. But I could show you, with a little imagination.

So if you take this:

Put it into womens sizes, unzip it until it's about three inches above your bellybutton, and cute the legs.
Wear a cute non matching bikini top/bottom with it:

and some rolled-down black converse with long beads:

Every girl is allowed to be sexy. But the converse make it fun.
I'll make sure to take pictures of the outfits I do end up wearing.
Since I finally found the batteries I need for my very crappy camera.

....There is a certain joy to being completely unfashionable.
Because afterall, isn't that what makes it so much fun?

I've found it!

Well a picture of it.
I was recently going through posts of Style Bytes when I saw this picture;

These are the romantic curls I've been looking for.
Please forgive me for this totally lame post.
But I've been looking for the perfect curls that I want, everywhere.

Ok you can smite me from fashion blogs now.
My giddy excited post is now finished. ^^

Spring has sprung, hopefully.

So Spring has all the other fashion bloggers chatting away excited. The unfortunate problem is that since I am in Bangkok, Thailand. It's already dead hot desert summer. And the only thing you can get close to is tying a pink ribbon around that bun to keep the hair off your sweating neck. But while I'm living in tank tops and pajama shorts, it doesn't mean I can't browse and enjoy. Hooray for internet and magazines.

So what am I excited about for spring fashion? Dresses.
Romantic, lace, embroided, white, pastel, patterned, short, long, boho, mexican Dresses.
And here are a few I'm in love with already.

I swear I don't have an infatuation with purple. ;]

I also really love the idea of big sun hats. Because you hasn't seen 'My Fair Lady' or 'Pretty Woman'? It's so vintage couture, I love it.

Trying Out Inspiration.

Let's face it, you walk down the street and you see a girl passing you in thigh-high boots and a shift dress with hoops and you know her job hours don't include daylight. Which might be just the stereotype that has kept me away from any type of stockings, socks, boots, etc. that go only as high as your mid-thigh. But a recent post from one of my favorite fashion blogs Sally Jane Vintage, has really changed my mind.

She makes it look so good.
The long scrunched down socks over tights really makes me want to jump on over to Sock Dreams and get me a pair, especially these:

How far off is christmas again?

Little Ole' Me

Upon browsing the countless fashion blogs and being so inspired by their outfits, especially the Scandinavian ones, I thought I would make my own. So I set out to Blogger and created this site. And so it begins...

My name is Annah, I'm currently 17 years old as I write this. I come from The United States, but have lived in Thailand for a year as an Exchange Student. I've just recently got into vintage fashion and have been so far hooked. I find myself scanning constantly looking for a good find. My favorite outfit usually consists of skinny jeans, boots, a oversized shirt/dress, and a scarf. I like to rehab clothes and wear things people usually would never dream on wearing. What's so fun about being like everyone else? There are some things in fashion I hate, which would include any graphic tee from Abercrombie, Hollister, or Aeropostle. I also hate gauchos and I can't stand Crocs. No and thank you.

Random facts:
-I'm allergic to penicillin.
-I'm a vegetarian.
-I want to be a professional stufio photographer.

So I hope this blog is successful. ^^
I'll try to update a lot, but I'm awfully busy.
