I’m Kimi Encarnacion and I live in a little beach town in southern California. I guess you could say I’m a vintage butterfly. I go where my eye takes me and I don’t follow any rules. I fell in love with thriftshops as a teenager and have collected vintage clothing ever since. My home is filled with junk store discoveries and curbside treasures. I traded Utah for Los Angeles at age 17, I studied fashion design, I sang in a rock band called Moonpools and Caterpillars, I dabble in everything and I’m completely enamored with my family. I have a knack for making something out of nothing. For making things fit and work. Mostly cuz I mess everything up the first time I do it! I started this blog in 2012 at the age of 44 as a social experiment to see if anyone would pay attention. I’ve always been a bit of a square peg in a round hole and just love that I’ve found so many others out there that are as mad about personal style as I am! You’re never too young to grab life as hard as you can and just be who you are.
My life is a big mish mash of FAB old stuff, fun people and lots of adventure. It’s my passion. It borders on obsession but I don’t mind, I really am crazy about it! Glad you found me! kimi.
