Jessica, behind the blog Chronically Vintage, also a friend from the blogging community had a terrible fire consume her and her husband's home, all of their belongings and one of their pets. I cannot imagine loosing so much in seconds and in such a terrible way. Sure, we all say that its just material belongings however an event like this is not only life altering but life changing. Jessica and Tony's relatives have set up a Crowdfunding here where you can make donation and a difference, and also show that blogging is so much more than meets the eye.

I love vintage, but vintage pants, not so much. When I came across a Miss V Valentino vintage pant suit I was amazed the trousers fit so well, the blazer I did not care much for. In fact they fit and felt so good that I decided to buy the suit even if I was only going to wear the pants. To my own surprise I wore the pant suit (yesterday) and then changed it up a little for today's post. Just added an obi like tie belt that I made back in 2010 for color and interest.
If you were wondering that's where the post title came from... all tied up ;)

Today started at 5:30 a.m. which is totally unusual for me. The day called for a dark blue vintage Valentino Miss V suit, I feared it might look dated as the blazer is long and the pants wide legged but, after seeing the NYFW runways, I am on trend. Or so, I think ;)

The grey suede shoes from Zara, one of my most worn flats, 54 times since 2014. They were a gift from hubs. Happens during a rainstorm I stepped in a puddle and they stretched, since then whenever I wear them they feel like flip flops and they tend to slip out. Other than that they're in really good shape, I could have probably wore them a lot longer, but I have come to the decision that I need to let go. I'm pretty sure that noisily dragging my feet around does not look good ;)
