In my mother's shoes



I had a little bit of fun playing around with the lighting from outside. Sorry, but this is as professional as my pictures get. My camera is skillfully hanging from some books on my bookshelf so that I can get it at the right height.


Necklace: Forever 21
Mesh top: Aeropostale
Tank Top: American Eagle
Skirt: Zara
Tights: H&M
Shoes: Salvatore Ferragamo

As you can tell from the title, the shoes were my mom's. They're a bit small on me, which is funny because my mom's
feet are bigger than mine now (*sarcastic tone* I guess mom's bodies change after pregnancy or something like that). I also have a few pants from her that are tight on me. I know I'm not the thinnest person in the world, but I was surprised at how small my mom must have been! She was a model, though, so that makes sense. Do you have anything clothes/accessories that you would like to give your children?

xo, Alexi

  3. Cute look!
    I definitely have some jewelrly I want to pass along someday, and maybe some of my handmade clothes, just cuz that would be cool.

    I know my mom was tiny too- I wanted to wear one of her teenager skirts and couldn't zip it up!

    And consider a tripod-- it's worth it!

  6. Such a cute outfit! I love that skirt. And I don't why you don't think you're the thinnest person in the world - you're teeny tiny!

    My mom's clothes are the same way - she has this amazing leather coat that my dad got for her, and it's so little.

  12. My mom had some of the coolest clothes EVER and she got rid of them all. I'm so blown. I know her pants would have been way too tiny on me, but the shirts and jackets?! Totally could have rocked them.

  15. Adorable outfit - that skirt is fabulous. My mom was also *tiny* before kids. I can barely fit into most of her clothes (sadly, because they are awesome!).
