I Long for You No More
My arms are actually sore from carrying all of my Long Beach Antique Market finds. It doesn’t help that I was sweating in my LA Dodgeball Society t-shirt, Nightcap Clothing leggings, Dita Dynasty sunglasses, Free People boots, topped off by an oversized Pixie sweater that I had finally freed my body from only 20 minutes before leaving. Fortunately, my Marc by Marc Jacobs bag didn’t add to my overdressing and proved to be a trustworthy companion. Here’s the composition of my heavy lifting:
I adore this $5 quirky bag with Old English lettering. I’m pretty picky about the interiors of vintage bags, which is why I don’t have any, but this has a pristine inner lining and looks like it’s never been used.
Good- the back even has writing. I want everyone to know I’m part of the “IN” club.
This faux fur has arm straps to keep it in place. Bonussss.
Bec was convinced this 60s mod dress wasn’t going to fit me- in particular, she was betting me that I wouldn’t be able to zip it up all the way. Well, she was 50% right. I can zip it up fine, but it’s a mini-mini dress. I’m just going to wear it with tights and consider me sufficiently covered up.
The embroidered little guy was calling out to me. I’ll be wearing this maxi dress with brown boots.
I won’t be wearing this robe as such. Instead, I’ll be throwing it over a white tank and denim cut-offs- the perfect contrast between the extreme lengths.
The handmade price tag on this said it’s a Vanity Fair pool cover up. However, for my purposes, the thin velvet-like material is going to serve me well as a dress.
Oversized jewelry with distinct personalities.
Fierce. Bec was scared.
A nod to Medieval Times. I still love that place.
Trojan warriors. One’s power is even radiating.
An Aztec warrior aka my personal bodyguard.
I like the idea of nations uniting around my wrist.
P.S.- The countries are upside down. To my surprise, I received a small scholarship for “Excellence in Social Studies” in my senior year of high school, but it took my boyfriend to point out my geographical error.
