Kimy on NW 13th, Portland Oregon

Often times it only takes one good find to inspire a whole look. That's what I appreciate about vintage/thrifting. Mixing the old with the new... Appreciation for the past and looking forward to what may come. I love this quote by Jean-Luc Godard It's not where you take things from—it's where you take them to.”

  1. This is the best styling I have seen in a long time! Gives me some good ideas how to wear a vintage batik maxi dress I've had for ages!

  2. Fabulous! Stunning! I second that this is the best styling seen in a long time. The balance and proportions are perfect.

  3. LOVE the Hawaiian dress! I have a number of vintage Hawaiian printed things that I'm always hesitant to wear in Portland but it looks like now I've got no choice; Kimy inspires!

  4. the scarf beneath the belt is a brilliant touch! so perfect for a windy day.
