but I really do love my "job" and our model Alyson plays a HUGE part in that sentiment. The hardest part about my job is narrowing down which photos to use, because really, she's that amazing. I guess that's a good problem to have though, right?! I haven't had much time to document my personal fashion moments but basically Bamboo Sky is an extension of my dream closet and if I looked as beautiful as Aly these would be MY blog photos! So just pretend this is me, the new tiffheartfashion. LOL, I know I will.

...just super busy. I sure was kidding myself when I naively thought I could have the same exact life [+ child]. Anyway, let's not bore you to death with what I'm not doing anymore. Let's talk about what I am doing. I'm practically giving away my closet again, that's what. Pre-loved Wildfox, Brandy Melville, Urban Outfitters, Zara and more. Join me and Shauna (@fashionplate_hi) this Saturday at Honolulu Night Market to shop our closets! Between she and I, we really could open our very own thrift store, so don't miss out.
Here's a little sneaky peeky of just a few of my pieces that need new homes!

"Let's Get Physical" jacket (shop.bamboosky.com) tank (brandy melville) Monroe Shorts (really old Style Stalker) "Hear Me Roar Necklace" (shop.bamboosky.com) back pack (Ross) JC Soiree (only big sizes left at NastyGal, but also coming to Bamboo Sky soon)
I was one of those girls who had every excuse in the book as to why I couldn't participate in P.E. that day. Partly because I suck at running, but mostly because I was repelled by the heather gray tee's that instantly turned charcoal gray ONLY IN THE IMMEDIATE AREA(s) of perspiration and the green knee-length saggy crotch jersey shorts we had to wear (you all know me… I live for mini hemlines). Thank God I made it through high school P.E. relatively unscathed.
Skip ahead 10+ years, however and I'm singing a different tune. I don't necessarily like to work out, but post baby looseness requires me to do so AND thanks to the paths paved by genius designers like Alexander Wang and Helmut Lang, "sportswear" isn't so dreadful anymore. Not only is heather gray actually now one of my go to colors (because I no longer have to run in it), but I find myself attracted to all things sporty. Also, we can thank luxe labels like Lululemon for allowing us to look super sexy while we sweat. But seriously, sportswear has been getting a literal make-over. Designers are integrating neoprene fabrics, athletic jogging jackets and sport shorts into their lines with an edgy twist. Now this? I can do!
So I've never played tennis (fear of large fore arms) but I have always loved my Style Stalker Monroe pleated skort for it's resemblance to those inappropriately short tennis skirts. And our "Let's Get Physical" mesh athletic jacket is the perfect addition for keeping it extra sporty. Got this rad tee from Brandy Melville ($20 BUCKS!!!) And this back pack? Ross people! I thoroughly appreciate the utility of all the compartments (a mom can never have too many pockets and pouches) and it's white, my favorite (non) color of the moment.
Here's some (errr A LOT of) other athletic inspired/sports chic pieces I've got my eyes on. I tell ya, when I become obsessed, it's quite dangerous. Anyone wanna be bad with me?

top (bamboo sky, sold out) skirt (current bamboo sky) chain choker (shop.bamboosky.com) crystal necklace (bamboo sky, sold out) GAP denim jacket (thrifted) wedges (UO, old)
One place, that comes 90% close to filling Hawaii's flea market void is Bailey's on Kapahulu (10% deduction because no furniture and not enough accessories, but I also realize this is not their specialty). I always assumed they only sold vintage Aloha shirts, as the conspicuously large "15,000+ Aloha Shirts" sign boasts at the entrance, but I was prompted to check it out A) because it's down the street from me and B) because I had seen Anthony Bourdain pay a hefty fee for some vintage shirts he bought while filming the Hawaii episode of No Reservations.
Upon entering I was immediately overwhelmed and then I knew... it was going to be a good thrifting experience. To me, you have to feel like you can spend all day mindlessly searching in order for it to be considered a quality hunt and being overwhelmed upon entering is a good gage of just that. Sooooo, the sign doesn't lie. In fact, I think it's being a little modest. They truly have a record number of Aloha Shirts in one place, but they also have a fair number of racks and shelves dedicated to vintage/retro clothes, records, toys and knick knacks. I walked away with one piece because time was against me that day, but I definitely plan to return soon.
Oh and a secret to vintage thrifting is to go alone! No better halves and certainly no babies. If you do bring a friend, you better be darn sure they're as in to rummaging as you are because treasures are never at the top in plain view, that's why they're called "BURIED treasures." So check out Bailey's one day! If not for the thrifting experience, go to be astonished by the selection of Aloha Shirts. It's truly picture worthy! Happy hunting!
