Hi Seany.






Chiffon Skirt- American Apparel, Brown Leather Jacket- 3.1 Phillip Lim, Crochet Top- Vintage, Woven Bag- Wayuu Taya for Barneys Co-op, Platform Sandals- Vera Wang Lavender Label, Bracelet- Vintage, Hourglass Necklace- BCBGeneration, Armor Ring- Free People, Crystal Ring- Ylang23, Flower Crown- Handmade 

The cow skull just happened to be sitting in the middle of that field. We didn't like, lug it all the way there for prop purposes or anything. Honestly, if this post were someone else's I would be mumbling something about it being corny and derivative (how many trends can you fit in one look?) but it just so happens to be mine, so I love it. Strange how that works.
After a pretty lengthy vintage drought I hit quite the jackpot this morning. My mom and I decided to visit Clothes Circuit (a vintage/consignment shop near my family's house) on a complete whim because we hadn't been there in years. I walked away with a vintage Missoni bed jacket (it's oversized, the colors are amazing, and it was only $150), the pictured crochet top, and a huge crochet scarf/blanket my mom found. If you happen to live in Dallas and wear a size six shoe, they have a pretty damn perfect pair of brown Miu Miu harness ankle boots (only $250). I kind of made a scene pathetically trying to cram my huge feet into them as I screamed across the (very quiet, with refined older ladies milling about) store for my mother to come see how amazing they were. 
OH. You know the Free People three stone rings I always wear on both middle fingers? They were stolen (along with my iphone) when little brother Ethan had a house party Friday night. I was ummm supposed to be babysitting. Anyway, I have started obsessing over finding the perfect replacements (instead of like, I dunno, world peace or gay rights or the horrifying fact that Michelle Bachmann has any kind of power whatsoever- nope, its all about the rings for me). I am leaning towards the Pamela Love triangle ring for one finger, but unsure about the other one. Recommendations would be lovelyyy. Taylor (thingsonhangers), that means you. I don't think anybody has better taste in jewelry.
I shall end this dissertation with a giant thank you to my endlessly crafty mother for whipping up the flower crown I wore. She never ceases to amaze me with her talent for taking my hopelessly unclear explanations, somehow divining exactly what I mean, and executing it perfectly.

  1. I know EXACTLY what you are feeling with the lost jewlery. That LowLuv welded cuff that I've been wearing in my posts recently broke in half because one of my co-workers decided to play with it. And I loooooved that bracelet.

    Missoni bed jacket sounds amazing. I'm still searching for one or a pair of Missoni flare pants.

    This ETSY seller has good raw crystal rings, I may buy one of them:

    This one looks a lot like the Free People ones you used to wear. Kind of pricey :/ but Planet Blue has a lot of great rings and really amazing selection of basically everything.
