Kimi Encarnacion is a vintage junkie with an obsession for kitschy decor and a mad love for fashion and personal style.
I’m moving my blog photos and fun to instagram. You can follow me there at honeyofcalifornia. I’m pouring all my juice into the launch of my clothing company and instagram is where I’m gonna be. I post these same kimi style photos and some personal stuff as well as my adventures getting this biz off the ground. It’s gonna be fun!
So,for now…here’s some high noon pix Rocky took of me and a lot of red and orange mixed together. Have a GREAT day!!! This isn’t goodbye, just a change of venue! ;) See you on insta @honeyofcalifornia
How about those vintage white round sunglasses from Allyn Scura Eyewear? I made the skirt out of an old house dress. Like a Mac Guiver of needle and thread, I just cut it out, even saved the big front zipper. Some of the coolest old fabrics I find are on these vintage house dresses. Crazy print gold.
I was off to the market. Love that fanny pack and I think I wear these bellbottom jeans + Birkies everyday! On my days off (from the bells) I’m breaking in a pair of dark indigo skinnies. The kind you spot clean only for 6 months to get the perfect fade. Pretty unfun! I’m a hopeless romantic when it comes to denim!
Having a Tammy Wynette hair day on the left. The pic to the right is how I feel around certain people. I move fast and the background kind of stays slow.
DIY Free People inspired patchwork bellbottoms. Click on the hyper link to get to my original DIY post. Alternative Apparel Tshirt w/ a lucky cat kimi restyle. And my birkies, and that red fanny pack. It’s all there!
I call this post Bowl Shucks but only because My Perfect Everyday 50s Homemaker Life was taken! Enjoy the color fest and drool over these beautiful bowls. Don’t skip over the salad book. What a fab piece of cover work on that thing.
I’d eat any cake decorated like this pink one with the white daisies. Happiest cake on earth.
My mom gave me these 1960s Amish butter print bowls by pyrex for my birthday a few years back. I had asked her for the ones she got in 1967 for her wedding but alas…they had been donated to the kitchen at the church sometime in the late 80s when they were simply called old instead of beautifully vintage. And that red gingham tablecloth dress? Ya, it’s vintage (not old :). The stack of cool old cookbooks have the BEST pictures!! I love my old cake book! I have one book full of recipes for foods that can be mixed with gelatin and tossed into a jello mold. It’s happy and scary all at once! Lastly, loving my 35mm lense. So warm with just the right amount of background fuzz.
I get a hat I love and I wear that thing into the ground. This one’s well travelled and even saved me from Coachella’s sun a couple years ago. It’s high noon and me and my twin (Rocky) are out on a camera walk. I think I told you I’m finally learning how to use the manual settings on my camera and I’ve nominated him as my photography pal.
Wearing my brand new black twig jeans from Urban Outfitters (on sale right now), vintage sunglasses, Sandgren’s clog sandals. Wish I could tell you where to find the hat, it’s been around for a while.
The needlepoint bluebird and flower patches came off an old tea towel or something. I don’t even remember cuz I’ve had them for so long just waiting for the perfect project! Well, it’s here and I can’t stop wearing this shirt. Do you love it?
Jay took these frogs eye view photos. Not my favorite perspective but love how they showin off those vintage Levi’s. Look at that detail. Fabtastic!!!
Free People shirt, Vintage Levi bellbottoms, Sandgren’s clog sandals. I’ve had that big boho floppy hat for years so I can’t even tell ya wear I got it but they are all over the place right now.
