Witchy sixties-seventies “I’m AM the band” vibes. Part one? I’m such a bad girl blogger, not posting the pictures I have all lined up. Forgive me darlings and get inspired by these instead xxx

Gaaaahhhh!! I’m back! With the fancy friday post being so very dramatic, I wanted to take the weekend to give ya’ll some space (I’m from LA but I love using ya’ll, it’s just fun). I have some fun outfits to post, including this one, because I’ve been a busy little nagging wife getting my husband to take pics every day! It’s nice to know that I’m slightly ahead of schedule because my college workload can slow me down and I hate leaving gaping spaces in content! This lovely vintage romper was my moms when she was my age! She’s the most amazing, beautiful, magical woman in the world who taught me everything I know. This is just one of the many pieces she’s graciously handed down/given me over the years. Maybe I’ll do posts dedicated to certain items and include their origin stories, my closet is a rainbow of crazy vintage for a reason.

Sweater//thrifted
Romper//gifted, 60s vintage
Tights//fleece lined, Ross
Boots//harley davidson
Black n gold beaded necklace/F21, old
Brown beaded necklace//Buddhist prayer beads (another mom gift)

The lovely Dolly http://fashionthatpays.wordpress.com invited me to play in my imagination today. So, because I wasn’t leaving the house today I kind of went wild. I love to let my mind take me where it may and when I stared playing with a new elf palette, this is what happened! I had no clue what I was going to do for this post, but it came together on its own. I imagined myself to be a twenties-inspired queen bee glam clairvoyant in the seventies, hosting an occult coven in a medieval morrocan tinged old English castle on the precipice of a lush coniferous forest and a deep blue lake. Fluttering around the chandeliers on glistening butterfly wings while my guests chanted and swayed softly below. Please check out my instagram to see the video I wanted to add (but can’t because I don’t have the ‘upgrade’). Maybe next friday I’ll bring it back down to Earth.

At the thrift store. Found some awesome pieces, but had to put everything back because I’m broke! I hate being broke. I’m hungry. There’s no damn food. I can’t get food stamps (how far below the poverty level does a person have to be to qualify???). Anyway, over sharing. I don’t like to talk about those kinds of things because I’m very independent and don’t want people to feel bad for me. But I want to be able to spend five bucks at the thrift store once in a while and wake up to some food in the fridge. That’s why I’m in school, so I can get a damn job (hopefully) that pays more than minimum wage. Because this isn’t living, it’s surviving.

                          Stars in my eyes, day dreaming,
                              surprised by the sunlight.
                    White, crisp clouds in the light blue sky.
                                     We’ll take a ride
                        and look for constellations tonight

Oh my lovely lovelies, float along on the wind. Dream softly of summer sun before winter rakes you in. Nothing can call your mind away from its deepest hopes; therein lies the strongest desires never uttered into quite hearts. Eyelashes brush against your cheek when they’re closed; two beautiful crescent shapes softly flutter closed. Don’t touch the butterfly’s wing, elst she cease to fly again. Just silently behold the delicate stirring of the air, that we can scarcely comprehend but we know in our heart’s imaginations.

<>FALL//IN//LOVE<>

Fall in love, fast and furiously. But take your time and pick that person well. True love is true life, a necessary thing, like oxygen and sunlight. When you have someone who makes you feel like you’re the only person in the world, the most beautiful, intelligent, soul full, feeling, amazing, glorious, wonderful, ethereal person in the whole wide world, it fills a place inside of you. It makes you feel grounded and like you’re floating on air. It’s very hard to put into words. Find love and give love, be kind. Be human, it will come.

Hey hey hey! First day of school! Whenever I say ‘school’ it sounds (to me) like high school; I should say University, but I’m at community college until next semester. So that leaves me with school. Whatever, it gets the point across (I’m sure no one thinks I’m in high school). So anyway, this means that I will have ‘ootd’s’ at least every other day! Woo hoo! For anyone that cares to peak at my clothes at least. So until wednesday. Tomorrow I will continue cleaning and organizing mi casita. ♡★♥☆♡★♡★♡♥☆☆★♡☆★★♡♥♡♥[][][][][][][]▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼◀▶
