The Secret Shop






Top: Secret Shop
Skirt: Secret Shop
Shoes: Kork-Ease
Backpack: Self made


For the longest time I'd been curious about vintage/thrift stores. Because of this, my mom brought me somewhere a friend once mentioned called the Secret Shop. This store in Los Feliz carries a variety of beautiful vintage pieces. Now that I own a few of these items, the feeling of having something that's one of a kind is great!


I feel this same vibe of uniqueness when I wear this backpack. Instead of carrying a purse, it's a perfect alternative. I finished knitting it not too long ago, and I'm very satisfied with the way it turned out. The heather grey and plum tones are very neutral, and the iridescent button really pops!

Marcus and Cleo

Two movies: About a Boy and Somewhere
Two men: Will and Johnny, both on the verge of loneliness.
Two kids: Marcus and Cleo, who eventually come into the worlds of these men and change their lives for the better. Not only this, but these characters both have impeccable style.


What I love about Marcus: The boy wears a lot of knit clothing, and I knit pieces are my favorites. Marcus sports a lot of dull and muted colors, which would seem boring, except for the fact that these almost boring shades are formed into intricate and detailed patterns.





What I love about Cleo: Stripes, stripes, and more stripes. This pattern is worn by Cleo so many times in the movie, and in each outfit it looks wonderful. I admire how comfort and simplicity seem to play two main roles in her character's style.


All in all, the outfits of both Marcus and Cleo are remarkably styled, and suit the characters very well. I very much enjoyed watching both About a Boy and Somewhere, and definitely recommend them.
