How to style Avant-Garde

Not knowing how to style vintage items is usually the one thing that stops people from purchasing an interesting piece. “What would I wear with this,” or ” How do I wear this?” probably instantly comes to mind. Items that I personally classify as avant-garde are loud and over the top garments.


Too many times we may feel as if we’re undeserving of opportunities we may be blessed with. Feelings of inadequacy can set in as well as the feeling of unpreparedness. These feelings reflect humility and that’s always needed, but we have to view ourselves where we’d ultimately like to see ourselves. For instances if you have dreams of being a CEO someday, then you must view yourself as a CEO in training.


I walked into the new year with expectancy. Honestly, in many situations you have to take charge of your destiny and faith it ’til you make it. It’s imperative to your growth! Two words have stood out to me since the year began, and that’s CONSISTENT and PERSISTENT. Don’t they mean the same thing?

As cold as it is, I’ve been determined to complain less about it. Especially ’cause it could be a lot worse (even though I really am over it). How’s that for a life lesson? I don’t know about you, but I’m complainy, and in hindsight most times it’s completely unnecessary. The first step is to admit, right?!


At the start of every year, people from all over proclaim that “This is my year!” Suggesting that the new year will in fact be better than the previous for them. I used to hate hearing that phrase! With every part of my being I used to detest it- In my mind I had no problem with going at my own pace and when opportunities arose I would seize them.
