PRAIRIE CHURCHIN'

belt, shoes, and levi's jacket thrifted in cowboy towns, nina mantra moon necklace, jewelry from melrose trading post/random, f21 pants, american deadstock tie dye cropped top, divided black tank, ebay bootstraps

I'm not sure what exactly is going on in that second to last photo but it sure does appear like I have junk in the trunk like crazy, which is AWESOME, if I do say so myself. I've worn elements of this outfit in previous posts, but after venturing to this abandoned church-thing in a small ghost town area outside of the city, there was no way we weren't taking photos. This place was so rad. I keep picturing everything shamelessly covered up in old tarp before suddenly being unveiled and magically dusted in the blink of an eye, bringing life back into this place (graffiti included) like that scene in Addam's Family, if I'm remembering that movie correctly. Ahhh, vampy church, how I love thee.

These shoes are my favorite of all my thrifted finds in some of the recent cowboy town adventures we had last weekend. $4. What? Okay. Yes, please. To add to it, I found this Levi's denim jacket for $5, and this belt for $1.35. One thing I will forever miss about this state - the distaste amongst people for everything I love, who gladly dump their old things at thrift stores, especially in small towns. I don't find a lot of people rummaging through stores like this, so there are multitudes of treasures to be discovered - and at a very low cost. 

Oh, Nebraska, sometimes I love you. Except when I hate you (November through April - gag me).

  3. What an amazing backdrop!! I love how you layer the tiedye with a simple black tanktop. You always look fantastic. I think I'm drawn to your blog because we have such different styles and you are like an alter ego my blog wishes to be!!

  5. Oh my gosh I love this! I wish I lived somewhere where all the charity shops were filled with gems like the ones you find. Instead we have a multitude of old people. Sigh.

  7. I am in love with those pants <3 Thrift stores are great here, too. I live in a mini-city, but everything I love is not things the locals wear, so I can go to Salvation Army and come away with at least 5 items every trip for soooo cheap. I love it it:)
