the good life










headband c/o wild and free jewelry, fringed dress c/o black pyramid, wholesale-dress.net top, tentacle & starfish pendant c/o silentcheesecake, hanging crystal necklace c/o nous savons, shorter crystal pendant necklace c/o my salvation,  metalicious knuckle ring, other jewelry from venice and flea market

Ventured to the craziest find 20 minutes outside of the city. Hidden away in overgrown weeds and brush was a tiny old motel, giant steel teepee, and this little abandoned gift shop. From what I gathered, the gift shop was built in 1909. Lots of broken and not broken things still packed away in there. I didn't take anything, though I wish I would have snagged that native american painting. I almost grabbed it but I heard movement in the attic as I went for it. Probably an animal, but in my mind I only could think of a scary old farmer that hides out and guards his treasures with a shotgun. So bam, gone. I didn't explore the teepee, but I will soon. 

Right now I am sitting in my 5th story apartment, windows wide open and listening to a blues fest going on outside. Ah, summer. Never leave, please? 

Also, I have been bombarded with giveaway requests, and I have decided yes on 3 of them. So expect a necklace, a shirt, and a ring, all coming soon to be given away. Stay posted, yo.

  6. Woah, an abandoned gift shop? I kind of did a double take when you first said so, but you're serious! That's so awesome; it looks pristine in these photos, at least. You should definitely go back again sometime.

    Also love the little black dress. I've been fawning over so many online, especially when dressed up casually like this. ♥
