Miss Merry Mack

Every so often I will do just a bit of modeling work for a friend (and fellow crafter). She owns/runs/designs Verabelle, a vintage clothing revamp shop. "Each article of clothing from Verabelle is a little piece of artwork, original and one-of-a-kind. It's clothing that's just as unique as you are!" Her designs are so cute, and they easily lend themselves to my style, so it's quite fun to play dress up in her latest and greatest.Verabelle clothing is frequently adorned with Amanda's sweet animal artwork. This is Mack the mallard. I think he's just ducky. (lol. I quack myself up.)
This is Mack's Take A Bow-tie Sweater. The little bows just killed me. I simply adore bows, and I've been on a major grey kick as of late. So this brings me to my problem with doing these shoots... not taking the piece I'm modeling home with me!
Top: Verabelle Take A Bow-tie sweater
Dress: (worn as a skirt) Target
Tights: Target
Earrings: Corvidae

All photos in this shoot are taken by Amanda. Seriously you guys, go check her out!

GO! Now!

Jayna Lee

This is my friend Jana. She's an acrobat. Yes. For real. It's her day job. I just felt the need to take a moment and point you attention in her amazing direction.

She does quite a bit more than just aerial silks but she's been hooked on them lately, and I thought the ones in the snow were just so beautiful! You can see many more performances (including her appearance on Ellen and America's Got Talent) HERE

Check her out Ladies and Gents!

(p.s. I really want her tights.)

Grey Skies Blue Skirt

Well here it is in action. The Clever Nettle skirt I received in the summer, and wrote about the other day. I finally got my act together and finished this post. I also went back and added a bit to the last one, as i just felt it wasn't quite as good as it could have been.

Top- Forever 21
Belt- Thrifted Ralph Lauren
Skirt - Clever Nettle
Tights- Target
Shoes Urban Outfitters
Necklace- Corvidae
Hat and Gloves - SoCo Antiques

Lol! I'm losing my hat!

Check out how beautiful the detail is on these gloves! I'm actually going to need to do just a touch of repair work on them as their age is showing a little, but these are old girls and are frankly in tremendous shape!

The netting is in perfect shape on this sweet little hat. I LOVE the pom poms. this is another of those things that i have always adored that is currently experiencing an online trend. A lot of the other (more well known) blogger ladies have taken to adorning themselves in cute little pom poms. I'm loving it.
This shoot was kinda bittersweet. I was glad to finally get some photo's of the Clever Nettle skirt, but one of my favorite places (to shoot, shop, and be) will soon be gone. Southern Comforts Antiques will be closing their physical doors on the 31 of January. It breaks my heart. It's been a crazy ride for them, and they just can't stay together. I'm planning on helping Wendy with learning ETSY so they won't disappear altogether, but it won't be quite the same. I'll keep you all posted. The good news is more people will have access to their amazing goodies! They will be donating to a special blog giveaway soon(probably mid-end of February, so keep checking back.

P.S. If you would like to support SoCo Antiques with kind words (or just to follow them for updates) you can follow them on Facebook HERE

Clever Purchase

I got a package!Ok, I took these photos about 400 years ago in the middle of the summer. I just never managed to upload them. I bought this skirt from Clever Nettle about five(ish?) months ago and I have worn it multiple times. I'd yet to manage any photos, which changed today. I got a couple of ok shots so I decided to milk this for all it's worth (lazy lazy lazy) and do separate posts.Pretty Pretty Wrapping! I Love how she used an old photo as a note card. I have such a little soft spot for old photos as I have talked about on here before. You can't help but wonder what these guys were talking about before the photo was snapped. I love it. I also adored the soft vintage (?) ribbon wrapped around the tissue. It has made it's way into my ribbon stash.

I love it! YAY! This skirt has all the versatility of a chambray denim skirt with the soft flowy shape that I'm so attracted to.

Anja has the most beautiful and inspiring blog. She is one of the reasons I started.
Check her out here!--> Clever Nettle

Stay tuned for an outfit post!
