When in doubt, idiot-proof is always the way to go.

I've never fallen in the technologically savvy category of humans, so when I finally discovered the extraordinary Instagram application, it was love at first sight.  A person with an IQ of twelve could use the app with ease, and without fail each and every picture would come out looking flawlessly beautiful (either that, or my infatuation with all things vintage is seriously clouding my judgement).  Sometimes I wish I could permanently view the world through an Instagram lens....

Funky elastic tube-top from sixth grade (literally), vintage aladdin pants, Antik Batik Bongo bag, Michael Kors watch, Zodiac watch, vintage timex watch, Earrings handmade by me?

**As a word of advice to anyone who has ever/will ever consider purchasing an Antik Batik handbag: Don't do it! I stalked this bag on Net-A-Porter for weeks before finally sucking it up and dropping the three hundred plus dollars and I've been thoroughly disappointed ever since.  Yes the bag appears to be pretty, but the quality is sub-par and all the fun embellishments (fringe, copper colored grommets/sequins) seem to be breaking off.  I've probably spent more time reattaching pieces than actually wearing the bag.**
