thrifted flannel and top, diy ripped jeans, voltavolta belt, yumena melody skull necklace, onemanband boots
This is probably something you've never seen before..and will hardly see. Me in PANTS. I don't typically like wearing jeans, as they are unflattering on me and rather boring in my opinion. So, naturally I cuffed the bottoms and cut the crap out of them. The photos don't show it but the entire seam on top is gone, and the pockets are useless now. Take that, pants.
If you are a reader of my blog, you know I am a fan of etsy.com. Almost all of my jewelry comes from there, as well as other clothing finds. If you aren't familiar with the site, it's mostly a wide array of jewelry, vintage, supplies, and art, created predominantly by independent sellers and artists. There aren't a lot of options for shopping out here (though we do have some great boutiques), and I prefer to wear one of a kind pieces that I know someone put their own hard work and love into. Aside from the item, the packaging itself is generally hand crafted and beautiful. With so much to see and buy on the internet, it is hard to get your name out there. I know this first hand as far as blogging goes, coming from the midwest where there are virtually no other bloggers around. For shopping - I think it's important to recognize the work and effort put in by these individuals and small companies, so you have and will see a lot of etsy items on my blog. Anyway, support your primarily-college-educated-20something-female-companies on etsy! And local stores as well. ;-)
With that rant, you KNOW I am wearing some etsy gear. This skull and cross necklace from Yumena Melody is one piece. So me, duh. If you like skulls and crosses and weaving with your chains, check out her store here. Also, my favorite new belt from VOLTA VOLTA. Seems like something I'd find hidden away in a grandparents attic, was my first thought when I saw it. Love this clock radio bracelet from their shop.
So much to do. How I make myself so busy is beyond me. I have too many hobbies and a million e-mails to respond to, as well as fitness junk and hair! And eating, of course. I NEVER skip out on eating. In fact, I think I'll go out to eat now.
