PENNY LANE WINTER

Apparently I hate my eyes and only look down in photos?
velvet leopard leggings c/o kayleigh peddie, thrifted coat, top c/o once youth, bone necklace c/o scavenged art, under the pyramids triangle necklace, unearthen pendulum ring, beanie from uo

So many things I would like to talk about here. First, being lazy and having my butt fused to the couch, I have created a tumblr account. I am new, I don't quite understand, and I need cool people to follow. Help me out! Second, I wore this the other night...as there was not a sheet of ICE over snow on the ground like there is right now. This 7 dollar coat that I found reminded my friend Michelle of Almost Famous, so I will say from now on that this is my Penny Lane coat. Way better than "thrift store coat". That tank would not have sufficed unless the coat stayed on, had I worn this today or last night. This weather is making me want to murder someone. Or get a dog. Currently in the process of trying to get a dog. Living downtown on the 5th floor of an old fruit warehouse turned apartment building, where there really isn't anything but restaurants, bars, and shops around...I am told I cannot have a dog. No no NO dog. "Unless you have a medical note for a service dog." Okay. I have now made an appointment with a random therapist so I can let them know how crazy and full of anxiety I am unless I'm around animals so I can get a medical note for a "service dog" that will help "calm me down". I have a feeling this will fall through, but other psychiatrists that I know on a more personal level have told me that it is very likely I can get that doggie prescription note. Wish me luck. My dog will be named Sticky, if I get one. The Stick.

Oh yeah, this is a fashion blog, right? Maybe I should talk about something less personal and conniving? I will start with the leggings. Kayleigh Peddie is a designer I have been somewhat obsessing over (another mental issue I have - being obsessive? yes, I'm obsessive! solution: dog.). On top of awesome tees and skirts, she makes PERFECT velvet leggings and cropped tops with exactly-my-style prints. I was lucky enough to be sent these high waisted leopard leggings that I am convinced I will wear the crap out of. Here are some examples of her immense raddness. Check out her store here.


Next up, Scavenged Art. I couldn't be more happy with this bone necklace that Suzanne custom made for me. With the skulls and the bones and the black chain, this is the ideal pinch of voodoo I enjoy in my accessories. I've got a serious witch love when it comes to my jewelry. Suzanne makes such stunning necklaces that it's hard to choose a favorite from her collection. Check out her jewelry here. After much indecisiveness, here are my top five.


Last but not least. The winner of the Solder and Punch spike cuff is....Leigh Travers! Congrats, lady. You can thank random.org

  1. God, I love Kaleigh Peddie. Also, I operate my life around the assumption that my dog will solve every problem that I will ever have. So far, it's proven pretty successful.
