NOT MY FIRST RODEO

vintage beaded crochet top, Urban 1972 boudoir lace shorts, vintage Smokey the Bear hat, vintage snakeskin DIY bucket bag,  JC Solvang booties from Joel, vintage southwestern belt, Bueno Bueno feather tails, vintage oversized cross necklace, B.E. rings and leopard skinny scarf
It's warming up here in The Great State" which means it's time for RODEO! Last night my family and I attended the annual BBQ Cook Off, YUMMY IN MY TUMMY! My Dad usually have a booth set up so we got VIP tickets and got to drink and eat as much as we wanted. You can literally smell it from the freeway as you're driving there! Love the Rodeo...you get livestock, bunnies, rides and CARNIE FOOD! I am a sucker for some carnie food! They will deep fry anything or put it on a stick like hotdogs, twinkies, oreos, sausage, turkey leg, etc!
So I decided to wear something a little loosey goosey to hide the food baby I was about to make. As you can see crochet is still my bitch and if I could wear it everyday, I would! I was feeling nothing but textures and had animal instincts. So I draped myself down with a few pieces. By the end of the night the scarf was tied to my purse cause it just keep choking me like I owed it money, hahaha! 
Overall everything was beautiful and Ephraim had a fucking blast! He passed out walking back to the car. I swear he does that every year! Thank Satan for Joel cause he's getting fucking heavy these days! Way too big for Mama to carry, tear!
I'm having a SWELL weekend and I hope you guys did too?? I know I've been a little M.I.A. but my bike had a flat so it's a little hard to get back and forth from my house to my studio. Plus haul all that camera equipment around while on foot. So I was like you know what, mini vaca for VV! But I'm back and I hoped you missed me??
Love you guys from the bottom of my vintage heart,
Virgin

FRINGE

(everything thrifted from head to toe)
 vintage gauze floral fringe capelet, $3 American Apparel dress found while thrifting, vintage Smokey the Bear hat, Zara leopard faux fur bag, Bueno Bueno feather tail, vintage oversized cross necklace, vintage bangles and B.E. rings
So my LATEST OBSESSION right now are floral fringe capelets/coverall! I would stab someone for one that has a red and black velvet burnout effect with extra long fringe, mmm YUM! I searched online and some of these people want a leg, arm, first born and your cat when it dies. Way outta my budget! So I found a shawl while thrifting that did the trick, it's gotta be a good one, with eye catching details and fringe, not your grandmother's movie shawl!  Just add 1 button or as many as you like to the front and BAM instant fringe cape. Slouch it over whatever you like. I decided to do a black out and bring your eyes straight to the capelet. Try it at home kiddos, this is probably the easiest DIY ever!
For the past couple of days I've been really busy but for some reason EXTREMELY HAPPY! I've been walking to work which helps me cut out time at the gym. Renewed my faith in Jamba Juice and bought one of those oversized calenders from Walmart to help me stay on track. I can honestly say "life is good"!!
Thanks for all the love on a daily,
Virgin

SURPRISE SURPRISE!!

vintage chocolate brown sweater, Urban 1972 Ruching Maxi Dress secret V-Day gift from Joel, DIY leopard turban wrap, Bueno Bueno feather tails, DIY stacked platform boots, Zara leopard faux fur bag, vintage oversized cross necklace, vintage bangles, B.E. rings and Zara skinny belt
A surprise V-Day gift from Joel! I know you must think I'm a spoiled lil bitch?? Well I am, hahaha! But only by Joel!! He knows what I want and if he likes it, he buys it for me. Trust me he says NO TO EVERYTHING sometimes! That's why I work extra hard for my cheap clothes. 
Anywho, LOVE this dress! Was so happy it has double lining...THANK YOU! It holds you in on the inside with the perfect drape on the out. Warm browns, leopards and feathers was all I wanted to throw on! I used to be scared of browns cause I am brown, hehe, but I've come to realize that my skin tone is like the best part of my outfits sometimes. So turn that brown upside down and layer up!
Hate to cut this short but I just got called in to work early and being "the sweet person that I am", I'm going to pick up the slack once again!
Love you all,
Virgin

CAN YOU FEEL IT?

(everything thrifted from head to toe except F21 shoes)
vintage paisley roses caftan dress, vintage Smokey the Bear hat, Target gray sweater socks, vintage Mexican leather bag, vintage necklaces, vintage bangles/watch, F21 platform clogs and B.E. rings
I can tell by the birds chirping and the chill in the wind that Spring is coming to Texas my friend!! I love Spring...it's my anniversary with Joel, birthday and Spring Break with Ephraim. It felt soooo gooooood out today I was able to wear some vintage. Joel calls it a sheet with a hole but I fucking ADORE caftan dresses! The pattern is key when choosing one cause you can easily come off all Mother Earth and shit and we don't want that. NO MA'AM! When I found this one, I thought the roses softened the paisley print and so I chopped it off halfway to my crotch, sweater socks and clogs. I am all for slouch and flow, shit that looks like it's about to fall off! Hahaha, you know what I'm talking about??
I have the weekend off so I'm going to believe it or not go to bed early! I haven't had a good night's sleep in like FOREVER! Plus I've been sick ALLLLLLLL week, blahs! Some chest, head cold bullshit. So I'm going to take a lotta pills and pass the fuck out! And hopefully wake up fresh and new to go thrifting.
Thanks for loving me cause I love you all back just as much!
Kisses,
Virgin

FUZZY WUZZY

(everything thrifted from head to toe except shoptoast sweater)
vintage sheer slouch blouse, vintage DIY scallop shorties, vintage faux fur cardi, DIY lace turban headwrap, vintage TIME messenger bag, DIY leopard platform maryjanes, vintage cross necklace, vintage bangles/watch and B.E. rings
Hey girl, haaaay? So I think it's obvi that I'm like super OBSESSED with scalloped trim shorts! I love them so much that I decided to make my own out of these vintage pink denim shorts. I just traced 2 1/2" petals along the edges and cut it out. Seriously that simple! Kinda anxious to see what they will look like once they start fraying in the dryer, hmmm.
 It usually takes me forever to wear stuff I get in the mail. But this sweater is like my new bfff(best fucking friend forever, hehe) and we will never part! NEVER!! It just adds that EXTRA I need in an outfit, LOVE!
So it's pretty much the same old same old. Family, school, gym, work and blog! I'm kinda sad that I can't go to NYFW, since once again I've been invited to a lot of events and parties. Strongly wished I lived in a city of dreams and opportunities. Instead I live in Buttfuck, Texas where it's cool to be a drug addict loser who throws house parties! LAME! I dress way too FUCKING CUTE to go to a house party!! I could probably count on one hand the people I know who don't live with their parents, have a real job and actually accomplished their life goals. One of those people is my hubbie, Joel. He is like the most mature person I've met in my life. He's definitely help me change for the better. THANK SATAN for Joel!!
Well I could go on and on about the losers of Houston but I gotta go meet my trainer Stevie at the gym, booooooo! 
Thanks for all the LOVE you guys show me on a daily! Really makes a girl smile!
Hugs from above,
Virgin

SPIDERWEB

(everything thrifted from head to toe)
DIY crochet spiderweb dress, vintage leopard velvet dress, Zara Yeti coat, vintage Smokey the Bear hat, vintage DIY platform boots, vintage oversized cross necklace and B.E. rings
So the weather here for the past few days have been outright STUPID!! It was supposed to snow this weekend but just ended up icing over the streets and then 65 degrees the next day. I was sooooo pissed cause I fell down my lovely iced up stairs just when the sun began to peek out and warm up! (Thank Satan I didn't ruin my fur!!) That's Houston for you...if the news say it's going to snow, do the opposite and wear a frickin' bikini, hahaha!
Anywho, the crochet spiderweb dress I'm rockin' was a totally accident. I washed it and it just started coming apart in the dryer, so I just went with it and shredded it to the crochet part. Too bad you can't see the AWESOME leopard velvet dress underneath, booooooooo! I LOVE THIS DRESS but not cause it leopard but I like how it rides up my thighs!! I don't have a lot of curves so I'll take what I can get, lol! I'll try and wear it again so you can see what I'm talking about.
Well I'm off to work, boooooooooo! I seriously need to workout my schedule with my manager. These muthaf***a got me working 7 days straight and I'm supposed to be part-time! Uh I don't think so! My first job is being a Mom. I feel like I only get to see my son when I volunteer at his school cause he's always passed out when I get off. So I may have to go back to selling on eBay just to get that Mommy and me time. Idk??
Thanks for the love,
Virgin
