stabbing belt + peace








UO belt
thrifted top
Black Willow Jewelry shark tooth necklace
DIY crystal necklace

It's hard to tell, but the table behind me has a giant peace sign spray painted on it. Randomly happened upon this thing. Was this before or after the storm of the day? Can't remember, we've had so many. None like the one I have pictured below. That was just the beginning, brewing black clouds above the city looking nutso. Somehow it resulted in NOT a tornado. Here, at least.  

Do you like that little number on my wrist/hand? Needs no other bracelets, lemme tell you. I got this courtesy of Darkling Studios. A magical gypsy jewelry shop, yet again. You know how I love those. Pay Darkling Studios some love here. Otherwise, shark tooth necklace from Black Willow Jewelry. Love me some teeth around my neck. Did you guys know that sharks are actually my favorite animal? I am fascinated by them. One time while boogy boarding (haha, yeah lame whatev') a shark head popped out of the ocean right next to me and scared the living heck out of me, as you could imagine. Come to find out, it was not alive, and not even a full shark. It had been freshly bitten off right under its fins, so naturally I grabbed it by those suckers and boarded back to shore where I could poke and prod. Did you know sharks feel like sandpaper? Not smooth at all. Anyway, something killed a shark. So...I didn't go back in the water. 

Any cool shark stories anyone? Probably not, probably just pain and death. In that case, don't depress us all. Or do.


 I photographed that random jewelry because I was convinced I would be sucked up in a massive tornado a few nights ago, so I packed up a "dash-to-the-basement-and-hide" bag with money, my laptop, some clothes, and a purse full o' jewelry, which later got dumped out onto my couch and now I have to sort though and put away. UGH.

 Hung out at the parents house the other day. My broseph is painting this cow skull he found a long time ago. Quite the artist, he is. Maybe if I am lucky this will end up in my livingroom?

  2. Oh, man those clouds are scary!

    Love, love the shorts. Funnily enough I have a knit hoody by Free People in exactly the same colour! Maybe they were twinnies once upon a time.

  60. Im in love with those shorts and want them so bad. i mite just make me a pair. but i can't believe you did that with the died shark. that was one of the most real exciting stores i've heard yet about a shark. I would've panic, Im afraid of them. Im also in love with your ring collection. I dream to have one that big. :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love the shorts and as always looooveee the jewelry. I recently started painting small skulls. I would love to work on a larger one. Once I get some more materials I may open an online store for them and you will for sure get a discount.
