black + white

.
Two very different items that I've been having too much fun with. One is a cheap striped tank from F21 - I've found so many ways to wear it (especially with things it probably shouldn't go with) but how did I survive without that basic piece?

The second is quite the opposite on all fronts. I found these pants in the 30s/40s room at ReRuns warehouse - no tags, no markings and look slightly handmade. At first struggled to find the best way to work them. But after a few goes I'm having fun with the crazy proportions they bring about! The Concrete Catwalk even liked them!

Left - American Apparel T, vintage pants, Banana Republic flats. Right - F21 tank, Anthro jacket, F21 Jeans and Shane&Shawn heels.

*The window behind me is an original from our house- 150+ years old! The previous owners left it behind and we're trying to think of a cool way to use it - any ideas?

First off you look adorable!! I LOVE those pants! And most people would be appalled at how many striped tanks I've bought in the last month. It's ridiculous! But I know you understand! I'm not sure how I've survived without it either!

And Second, that window! I love!!!! It would look great standing on a cool dresser or even hanging on the wall. Such a great treasure that they left behind!! xo

Maybe you could reinforce it, add legs and make it into a coffee table?
