Hello fabulous fashionist@s! ♥♥ CC here again, it’s not the new years yet but I definitely know what my resolution is, to stop ghosting you all. Seriously, whats up with me disappearing? Well, I’ve been working on various projects that I’ll be showing on here. But I’m glad to be back. For starters, if you’ve been following my instagram page, I introduced to you all Classic Californian’s newest furry addition, Coco Chanel. (If you haven’t been following my instagram page, @ClassicCalifornian , please do so! ) She’s a small toy Maltese but don’t let her small size fool you, Coco Chanel will fight you. She has the spirit of a lion and knows she’s fabulous. Her self confidence and the way she carries herself like a true lady is very remarkable for a small canine like herself. Coco loves getting pampered and small walks. Coco will be a regular so I thought I’d give her a small intro.
Moving on this dress. It’s actually vintage from the 90’s. How I got it is an interesting story. My friend and I were on a hunt to find vintage gems and came across this vintage second hand shop in LA called Jet Rag. I think we even went there by mistake. The store was HUGE and had every vintage dress you could ever dream of. The dresses are organized by decades ranging from 1920’s to the present. There are also lots of accessories, vintage jeans, and hand bags. This usually isn’t my scene but I had to give it a go. I scourged the 1990’s section and found so many wonderful dresses true to the decade. But I fell in love with this lavender retro looking dress.
Another side story to add, these earrings are actually vintage from the 90’s as well. They’re something my mom passed down to me. I’d say that they’re really classy.
I honestly don’t care that it’s fall and that these “aren’t seasonal appropriate colors” like if those rules exist. For one, Coco Chanel (the most iconic fashion designer, like ever) once said “don’t dress for the weather”. And two, it’s LA here and we always have sunshine. Seasons don’t exist here, it can be December and be like over 72 degrees. How I love SoCal.
Speaking of the seasons, I’ll be posting some holiday looks for you all cause I know we may have some holiday parties to attend. If you’d like too see a certain style or trend but not really sure if you want to try it out? Tell me in the comments section and I’ll try it out for you!! (if I agree with it)
