calivintage 's Thoughts:

i am weirddddd todaaaay. i think it’s because suddenly it’s raining, it’s pouring, blah blah blah. this is a good thing because we’re in a drought here in california, so we need the water. and it gives me an opportunity to wear my sweet brogues. i went for the grunge look a little bit here in this thrifted linen babydoll dress. it’s a little rumply, but it’s linen, so i think it’s supposed to look like that???

haha, anyway i kinda look like little orphan annie in this outfit, but it’s very fun to wear! i have been twirling around in this little dress.

another weird thing is the way i painted my nails last night. what was i thinking? i got all space-agey glam and painted them shiny silver. doesn’t quite go with the outfit, but it goes with my mood. haha. and hey, not to get all matchy matchy on you, but they do actually match the silver grommets on my shoes… ok, whatevs.

oh but wait! the most important part! i was gonna up this outfit by a million times by tying this (square-shaped) floral scarf i have into a turban, but then i realized that i dont know how to tie one!!!! someone teach me how? i need a how-to stat! hehe.

*update: i still want the how-to so i can do this properly, but i just took the two seconds it takes to figure something out and now i’ve got my little turban, so i replaced the main photo with the new look.

Classytrash did a how-to post on tying scarves as turbans sometime ago, here's the link: I especially love the first photo, I think the turban and glasses really complete the outfit! And P.S. I think I watched Annie (the original version) a billion times as a child :)

this is adorable, the turban is such a great addition! Your geek glasses are super cool and I think it's time for me to invest in some tall socks to wear with oxfords - yours are awesome, btw. (and yes, I know socks are not a major investment. :)
calivintage on April 07
haha. yes, there's a super longs near my house (i just call it that because it's HUGE). anyway, they have a wall of knee socks in every color. it turned out to be an investment because i bought so many. and also, thanks!!!

Cute, I found something online abut tying a turban. I'm not sure if it's accurate but it's very close. They have other guides on there also.
