Easy DIY: Painted Necklace

Since I tend to gravitate to "colors" like gray and black, I wanted a cheap and easy way to add a shot of color--something bright and playful, almost cartoon-y.I found this slightly weird necklace in the $1.00 bin at a flea market and decided it was my mission in life to paint it an obscenely bright traffic-sign yellow.The whole project only took about 10 minutes, and I let it "hang dry" on my fire escape...

Russet + Blue

So, I've really been feeling this rusty russet color lately--by coincidence, it featured prominently in Sunday's photo shoot. Y'all remember how much I loved the colors in Gucci's Fall/Winter collection, and several other designers featured these colors, too.I wanted to wear this russet top I've had for years with something bright, and a pair of Smurf-blue pants did the trick.Victoria's Secret blouse; vintage pants, belt, bag, and shoesFa la la...

Weekend Photo Diary: Booty Fights and a Photo Shoot

Busy weekend! I headed to Fountain Square on Friday night to snap some pictures and check out the Indie Summer show. Cincy Brass got the party started, and Big Freedia? Big Freedia turned it into a Par-TAY with a capital P, with multiple simultaneous booty fights happening on stage. Seriously, if you don't know about New Orleans bounce, you have to check her out. Azz everywhere, indeed.The City Flea On Saturday, I stopped by...

Put It On and Don’t Say a Word

Wore this dress to run around pulling items for a photo shoot for A-Line this weekend. I've worn it  before (here), and I like it because it's comfy and doesn't need much more than a belt to make it look like I actually put effort into getting dressed.  On the downside, it's polyester--and y'all know what happens when summer heat meets polyester.Oh, and I also treated myself to this ridiculously yummy buttermilk white chocolate cupcake...

Don’t Be Fooled By the Rocks That I Got

My obsession with rocks and crystals likely started during the dinosaurs-are-awesome phase everyone seems to go through around 4th grade. I dreamed of expanding my rock collection--proudly displayed amongst my collection of My Little Ponies and Sweet Valley Twins books--to include crystals and geodes and jagged stalactites (or was it stalagmites?). To this day, anything that looks like a treasure coveted by small creatures with pointy ears from...
