is all about smart fashion at a smart price. Growing up in the midwest, Christina learned the fine art of passing up the marked up merchandise at the front of a retail store and heading for the real deals at the back end. She adopted her mom’s shopping rules and began haunting local thrift stores and what seemed like miles of dissheveled discount clothing racks and unfortunate smells of mothballs–thus the hunt for spectacular pieces of fashion treasure was on! So in order to make what could be a frustrating shopping experience, Christina endeavors to make her readers’ experiences as aesthetically pleasing as possible! Tales From The Thrift offers tips to a refreshing alternative to polished vintage boutiques and online flash sales. The look above combines thrift items, sale items and an affordable pair of WCS Big City round sunglasses!
Ah, weekends in the country. Sometimes all we need are a relaxing three days of taking in the fresh air and scenery, hot tubbing under the stars, and doing absolutely nothing, but—we’ve got to be realistic here—we still wanna look like a babe. There’s a huge, prob 100% chance you’ll be planning your outfits right down to the cute l’il vamp retro cat eye sunnies and comfy hoodies. But hey, in the end it’s all worth the effort. So, in the essence of mega chillaxing, Sabrina of Freaky Friday blog compiled a mostly-realistic look for soaking up the beauty of the outdoors for a splendid mini vacay—complete with mani/pedi and all.
We’ve been huge fans of Maja Mladenovic of Fashion Board for a while now. She lives in Belgrade and she’s our newest blogger babe to come on the WCS scene. So we thought this would be the perfect time to show off her everyday style in a hot little sports jersey, LP round metal sunglasses and sheerling lined jacket.
As Milan fashion week proceeds like a wildfire out of control, we forge ahead hunting out the best and freshest street looks the world over, thanks to Sabrina of Freaky Friday. For Spring, we’re seeing everything from brightly colored fringe, to fluorescent fur collars, to vinyl dresses and everything in between. And we mean EVERYTHING! Sabrina’s taking notes and dropping serious names as she stops to take a much needed break from all the fashion eye-overload. Here she struts her WCS Lorgnette round field sunglasses and nifty little pocket diary/handbag!
There’s nothing not to love about Pierluigi Musco. The Italian-based fashion blogger pairs Indian motif patterns with classic knits and a killer pair of Hubert classic square metal aviator sunglasses for a timeless feel-good Springtime ensemble. (Seriously, this look celebrates the first days of warm sunshine). Pierluigi has amassed a huge following of young guys from around the world who appreciate sophisticated European fashion trends and we’re super worked up that his blog, PapillonP, is just the start of a long fashion career ahead. Be sure to check out the badass photo shoots over on his blog!
There’s no denying every girl wants to be in the “bad girls club” at least once in her life. But hey ~ we’re willing to bet that even the shyest of demure babes have fantasized of pulling off a killer studded leather jacket, retro UFO sunglasses, thigh-high suede boots and faux garter leg wear. This look is not only awesome, but oh-so versatile. Take it straight from weekend shopping with the girls, to the dive bars until 3am with beers in hand. Problem is, sometimes even the boldest fashionistas experience “awesome outfit creation” burn-out, so Ruxandra of From Brussels With Love can help alleviate all your fashion stresses. Get ready to feel inspired! You’re welcome. 🙂
With a clean, minimalist fashion style, blogger Mercedes of The Midnite Blues is in many ways a traditional Spanish blogger. But there’s a twist ~ she’s also an avid writer and lover of Japanese literature. The look she has created here is oh-so Hollywood in a pair of WCS Enigma retro cat eye sunglasses, Miu Miu open-toe heels accented with adorable anklets, and her classic silver screen pastel pink dress and coat she fun-lovingly refers to as her “pink candy floss”. Ms. M started modeling when she was just 14, and loves flaunting it for the camera so be sure to check out her daily looks for year-round killer style inspiration.
February is absolutely all about the layering of fabrics and colors. We kicked off the month with a fresh, new look from Serbian blogger babe Jovana, of Cipelica Stiklica. Here she is on the city streets of Zrenjanin to illustrate how to coordinate a killer Spring transition look. So this week, we’re all about focusing on a black and navy color palette and stylin’ lots of texture to add a ton of interest. Check out our favorite pair of WCS Vintage Camptown sunglasses, on sale now for just $12! Limited stock so hurry and get yours today.
Intrepid hue lover that she is, fashion blogger Christina of Bohemian Wild takes us on a color tour for this stunning look. We start with the pinks and corals, with angular lines and patterns weaving through her patterned skirt, hoodie, and “Cross My Heart” sunnies. Then we visit the warmer gold and red hues in her graphic T and Chanel lip color. She finishes the look with an abundance of Festival style rings, an edgy biker jacket, textured leg wear and ankle boots. This is definitely a new type of power dressing for Spring 2014. The key to this collection is in mingling unlikely combinations together while making sure shapes, fabrics, and colors are complementary. And you can do the same to get the look – start by journeying through your closet to gather some new and fresh inspiration for the upcoming season!
Synchronizing color palettes are back on the scene! A knit beanie in a shade that matches your Uggs, for example, looks oh-so thought out and smart. Greek fashion blogger Maria of Fashion Mariac has taken a simple “road trip” look to the max by harmonizing in hues of hot pink and rose to finish off an adorable ensemble in a pair of WCS pink Melrose mirrored clubmaster sunglasses.
