how to shop for vintage clothing online / oh joy!

If you know me, you probably know how much I love mixing vintage into my wardrobe (I even had the Oh Joy team get glam in vintage)! Shopping vintage used to be about scouring local thrift stores and flea markets to find hidden gems, but now it's become easier to find great vintage with all the online options out there. Shopping for vintage online allows you to shop from anywhere in the world from anyone's former closet. And, if you live somewhere where there aren't great flea markets, you can still access some of the stuff that other cities seem to have more of. Here are my 10 tips to shopping for vintage clothing online...

color adventures: oh joy wears black & white! 19 Jul 2017

Black-white-outfits-13-grid-blog

When we were deciding what July's color combination should be for this month's Color Adventure, there were some debates in the Oh Joy office as to whether "black and white" counted as options. They aren't the over-the-top, unexpected colors that we have previously featured in the past six months. But then, what we realized, is that you never see me wearing black and white. And, we rarely style anything in black and white! So, while the two colors together are nothing new, here's a look at black and white the Oh Joy way! Today, we'll start off with four very fun outfits...

my favorite summer sandals... 10 Jul 2017

my favorite summer sandals

In the last few year, I've really began to appreciate the quality of shoes and buying ones that will last longer over time instead of cheap ones that wear out in just a few weeks. I am certainly in the stage of my life where shoes (and handbags) are worth spending a little more on then when I was in my twenties.

So, as I am sharing some of My Favorite Summer Sandals today, I am putting it out there up front that these are not cheap shoes. There are a range of prices shown, but nothing here is considered fast fashion (but they also aren't as expensive as Jimmy Choo's ;). I have personally worn all of these brands and am sharing my favorites that I would spend money on and put on my feet! Take a look...

Summer-sandals-2017-blog

Marais — If you follow me on Instagram Stories and when I share my outfit of the day, 3 times out of 4, I am wearing Marais sandals. They are my go-to sandals in the summer for work and for life because they are chic, yet totally comfortable.

Charlotte Stone — For a multi-color splash of fun on your feet, Charlotte Stone has you covered. These shoes are great quality and easy to wear while still feeling like you got a very unique pair of shoes.

Loeffler Randall — For work or dressier occasions, Loeffler Randall is my go-to. They are so strong at perfect little detail and colors that stand out yet go with everything.

Olive & June — Known as the coolest of nail salons in Los Angeles, Olive & June recently launched the Saturday Sandal which not only makes for the perfect sandal to wear after a pedicure, but also makes for a great summer flat for the beach or weekend errands. Plus, you can tie the sandal straps a ton of different ways.

Pons — These are a comfy go-to shoe all summer long when you need to run after your kids or go in and out from the water but you don't want to wear rubber flip flops.

Zuzii — Zuzii has been one of my favorite kids shoes brands for years, and they now carry womens' sandals and clogs that I just love. 

Bryr — Bryr specializes in clogs and makes custom colors based on each seasons style. I've had them in two-toned versions which take the look of the clog up to the next level.

dresses to play in... 1 Jun 2017

Oh Joy / Sonnet James

My favorite pieces of clothing are ones that are both comfortable AND cute. Because—let's be honest—some things we wear are highly uncomfortable and we just suck it up because we love the way it looks. But now that I have to be on-the-go and active with my kids waaaay more often, I need more pieces that I can move in while still looking somewhat pulled together. One of my favorite clothing brands—Sonnet James—just released a ton of new pieces made specifically to play in (that happen to also be really cute). So, today, I am showing off a few of my favorite pieces with you...

chic + comfy dresses... 22 May 2017

Sonnet James

I am totally a dress person and wear them almost every day when the weather allows for it. But a lot of people say they can't wear dresses when they need to get a lot done or run errands or hang with their kids. Well, there are so many great options these days that are easy to wear, washable, and still look very put together. Here are a few of my favorites!

3 grown-up ways to wear rainbow

Rainbow has been super on-trend this year in everything from fashion and home decor to hair and nails! But when does the rainbow trend look too young vs. age-appropriate? While I would gladly wearing a full-on rainbow outfit every day of the week, I also try to make sure I'm not one of those 30-somethings (actually...almost 40-somethings) who is dressed like a teenager. So, here are three outfits I put together that feel more grown-up while still rocking the whimsy that is rainbow...
