new shades for the homeless girl

Saturday, November 3rd, 2012








60s dress: Sacramento Antique Fair, $5
60s cape: thrifted, $3
tights: old
60s heels: thrifted, $5
safari tapestry purse: thrifted, $3
*prescription sunglasses: c/o Firmoo

For the longest time I’ve been wearing an old pair of totally non-stylish glasses with clip on sunglasses when I drive or when I’m out in the bright sun. Now, thanks to Firmoo, I have a super stylin’ pair of shades to wear.   If you’ve been following my blog for a while you know I’m broke poor and don’t have benefits, so when there are companies like Firmoo who offer free glasses (yes, you can get free glasses on your first order!) it’s a godsend.

I apologize for not blogging for so long.  I’ve been busy working, commuting/traveling… all that fun stuff.   I’m kind of homeless and living out of suitcases so my outfits lately haven’t been as planned or calculated, and in a way that’s when some fun combinations happen that you wouldn’t think of.  But I’m definitely tired of not having a solid routine or home and I hope that will all get sorted out sooner than later.   But on the bright side I’m really happy with my new day job and excited about being back in the Bay Area.  Riding so much public transportation has allowed me to dive into a book I’ve been wanting to read for a while, Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion.  I seriously have been trying to bring it up in conversation with anyone.  It’s one of those books you wish everyone would read because the world would be a better place.

*Firmoo sent me these glasses to review on the blog.  I’m also not totally homeless, I’ve been staying with family, and I rented a sublet room for about 10 days or so, but you know what I mean.
