road kill

It's been awhile since I've gotten excited by anything on Etsy. I was looking for a camera ring which somehow lead to a boombox necklace which then lead me to Road Kill (or Elaine Ho Jewelry). Road Kill is an Etsy shop that specializes in handcrafted silver jewelry. She's got crazy categories like nerd, all you can eat, and roadkill. I'm really feeling her designs and I want to own one (or more) of her pieces. I'm favoring these. (Oh... and you can also go to her website to see all of her designs.)

6 ways to wear a scarf

Maybe you are like me. You loves scarves but your knowledge is limited on how to wear it. Sometimes when you see a scarf worn just like how you want it (in a magazine or online or on a person), you try to save that picture. Still... at the end of the day, you're a little bit lost and you go back to that go-to style.

Well, let's fear not. I was checking out Leigh & Luca (one of my favorite scarf designers) this morning and I saw a tab- How to Wear. Could this be for real? I was happy to see them share six ways to wear a scarf. They've gotten written directions with visuals. They even have a video. Here it is. Watch and Enjoy! Let the scarf wearing begin!

oh, and did i mention...

... that I really want these Surface to Air buckle sandals? I've have been admiring them from cyber space for quite some time. They're gray (though they come into other great colors, too), they have a wedge heel, they have cutouts, and they're adorned with buckles. They're so me! What's not there to love?

still into spikes

You know... I really wanted that Elizabeth and James dagger necklace but it's $525 and I'm not in the mood to spend that much. (If only I had taken advantage of chickdowntown.com's insane Christmas discounts, it would already be mine.) This spikes necklace by chrishabana is only $125 and fits into my budget very nicely. Plus, it's simplicity is kinda nice and I appreciate the longer chain. I bet I would wear it tons.
