itemized.



Hat: Stolen from Husband, originally from Banana Republic. While this hat looks OK on me and I wear it often, it actually looks much better on him.

Coat: My all time favorite $12 Vintage find. I can sell every other amazing coat I find as long as I know this old faithful is hanging in my closet.

Dress: Vintage from the 1940's, a gift from my mom's friend Lynn who got it from her mother-in-law, who has held on to it all of this time along with a whole huge wonderful batch of 40's day dresses that I am going to try to sell for her at a huge vintage / handmade jewelry party my mom and have put together that is happening at a little cafe in my town one week from today. If you live in the greater Northern Nevada area you are totally invited. Email me for the address and time. secondskin19 (at) gmail (dot) com.

Belt: thrifted

Belt Case: A very lovely and thoughtful gift from my sweet friend Seval. She lives in Turkey and has taught me that Istanbul must be one of the most amazing cities in the world. I will one day go there and visit her. Though she and I have not emailed or corresponded for some time now, I know that we will always be friends.

Boots: just from Nordstrom a couple of years ago.

Hm, mentally calculating what the price of a plane ticket might do the cost of those vintage items...wish I could come.

Okay, the first words that came to mind was "What the freak is that belt?" "Is that a money case on it?" "Oh my god, I need that"

Jo said...

I've been catching up on you posts. Your pictures this week are great. I'd love to talk yoga with you sometime. I'm growing in my practice too and I love reading what your working on. I'd also love to drop in on that sale if I was in the neighborhood...maybe some other time.

That may be the best belt I have ever seen. Think of all the goodies you could put in the pouch! And that jacket, I don't even have to say anything about that cause it speaks for itself.


I haven't had the time to browse blogs for awhile and I forgot how much I miss you. I hope you're doing well.

Gorgeous! I'm so glad I found your blog (thanks, Mel). Loving your style! Also, I wanted to say you should plant herbs. Lavender and rosemary would do well in your climate. Also, succulents would be great, too. Feel free to email me if you've got any "rooting" questions! Blessings.
