A couple days ago a friend and I drove to the almost tippy top of a near by mountain. On our way back down there was the most incredible look out of the sun setting. I wish so badly we could have captured how absolutely gorgeous it was on camera! Anyway, the colors all seemed to fit really nicely in with the colors of my outfit. I'm really in love with mixing pastel floral prints with a little bit of sparkle and sequins. There's nothing like a little sparkle to liven up any outfit!
what I wore:
dress: vintage, thrifted.
belt: vintage, thrifted.
shoes: vintage, etsy.
floral crown: handmade by me!
assorted jewelry: thrifted/vintage

A couple days ago a friend of mine took me on a moped adventure to a couple places I had never seen in my town. I fell in love with so many of the areas and have decided that I now want a moped more than ever. They are so much fun! Other than new found love for mopeding it also has rekindled my appreciation for the area I live in which makes my excitement to blog on an ultimate high. I want to share photos of all these glorious places with you! PLUS, it's pretty much the most exciting thing ever to get dressed up and hop onto the back (or front) of a moped!
what I wore:
sequin top, vintage, thrifted.
pleated shirt, vintage, thrifted.
tights, JC Penny.
justin boots, vintage, thrifted.
crystal necklace, handcrafted.
bead crown, handmade by my sweet.
See you soon!

what I'm wearing:
floral top, free people: thrifted.
batik dress, handmade/designed my me! <3
boots, Justin: thrifted.
These past few months I've been occupying my time with a whole lot of sewing. For the longest time I had been sewing stuffed animals and fixing vintage dresses but I always desperately wanted to create something I could wear. I've started so many garment projects in the past that never turned into anything but scrap fabric for another project that I never started. It's such an excellent feeling to start something with a vision and actually finish and wear it! I've been having so much fun making patterns and experimenting with different fabrics and designs. I'm really hoping to have some patterns drafted out and potentially do another craft fair in the near future. Renegade perhaps?
Anyway, between work and crafting in my free time I haven't had much desire or time to start back up with etsy but I want to put an end to that! In the next short while I plan on getting back in gear and picking up the pace on reopening my shop... or potentially starting another? It's all up in the air as of right now but I have plans, BIG plans of what's to come and I'll be sure to keep you all informed! Thank you too all of my readers and etsy followers for the great support and same love for vintage/fashion that I have. It's been an amazing ride and I can't wait to continue onto whatever happens next.

Hello everyone! How have you all been?
A couple months back I went a little scissor happy and chopped off quite a few inches of my locks. I really had no idea how much I cut off until I started looking through photos a couple days ago. HOWEVER, I'm really not upset. Change is good and hair grows, right? Ha.
These photos are from a couple weeks after cutting and adding more of an "ombre" look to it. The lightening of my hair has been pretty gradual but I'm actually quite fond of the outcome. I have some fun colors I'll be adding to it in the weeks (or months) to come but for now I think I'll leave it be.
In other news, isn't this skirt awesome? I purchased it from JC Penny a little while back for $20! I was very surprised by all the awesome basic skirts, tees and pants they have that are stylish and priced really well. I've been purchasing a few key pieces from there for work and pairing them with some of my vintage items to make my outfit stand out as my own personal style.
what I wore:
sweater: vintage, thrifted.
skirt: JC penny.
bag: Vintage Turkish Killim, eBay.
boots: Justin riding boots, thrifted.
necklace: gift from Bruklyn.
Lately I've been sewing quite a few projects. I'm hoping to make a blog update about them in the near future. I also just recently purchased a new camera lens that will hopefully jolt up my motivation to keep up on my blog. I really enjoy hearing from you all and posting updates. So please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions!

Hello everyone! I'm back with some more older photos. This set was from my birthday back in September. I really love getting ridiculously dressed up on "special" occasions and taking photos. I purchased this beautiful 1940s dress a while back and I had been dying to wear it. I'm pretty sure my birthday was the perfect occasion.
Before going out my sweet Bruklyn brought over the most AMAZING present ever. A Blythe doll! I was so excited I started crying. Unfortunately I don't have any photos of her (I'm customizing her right now) However, I'll be sure to post photos of her once I'm finished.
Anyway, after the pictures in the park and the gift opening Bruklyn and I headed to Ashland where we ate delicious Indian food and hung out for the rest of the evening. It was a pretty great birthday.
