"I feel it in my fingers, i feel it in my toes. love is all around me"

C: I bought a few large white tees the other day and they really inspired me to jazz them up. So i dug threw my attic and found some old fabrics. I cut out a square of this vintage floral fabric, and sewed a nice pocket to my shirt. I also cut the seves shorter and the bottom to make it less like a dress! Then i tucked it into a pair of levi jean shorts..popped on some vintage boots..pinned back a few strands of hair, and headed off to the movies. Try it, whats the risk? And don't forget to let me know how it turns out!

I know I have been found but I still believe that one day I will wake up, You’ll be next to me.

M:
Leaving for Virginia Beach tomorrow, which means I won't be able to post for a couple of days but don't worry Cas will still be here to do so! I've fallen in love with the song You by Michael Warren, you have to listen to it! I was listening to it while I was taking these pictures, the whooolleeee time. Oh that reminds me, in the pictures above I was wearing my dad's old t-shirt, UO leggings, and vintage heels. Au revoir, xxxxx!

"Tearin' it up, and we're burnin' it down".

C:
I found this jean jacket shoved in the back of my closet the other day, and knew there had to be something I could do to it! I decided to rough it up! I found a few good knives, scissors, sand paper, and my personal favorite-- bleach (also known as acid wash). After ripping it up enough to my standards, I headed outside with some bleach. Pouring it into the lid and splattering it over my new and improved jean jacket, gave it the touch it needed! (While also seeping into the deep cut i had just made with those handy dandy knives). I'm hoping to add some studds to my jean project too!! Let me know what yah think??

Cars aren't for showing how far you've gone but how far you can go.

M:
Wearing an old button down shirt, biker shorts, Dr.Marten boots.
Trees swayin' in the summer breeze, 
Showin' off their silver leaves, 
As we walked by, 
Soft kisses on a summer's day, 
Laughing all our cares away,
Just you and I, 
Sweet sleepy warmth of summer nights, 
Gazing at the distant lights, 
In the starry sky.
- A Summer Song Chad & Jeremy

You've got style, that's what all the girls say.

M:
Made this high waisted skirt just now, cut it from an extremely long skirt we had sitting in our attack. What do ya think?? xxxx.

These boots are made for walking.

M:
I was looking at the Urban Renewal collection at Urbanoutfitters.com and was inspired to make something of my own! Ta-da! It's not a very exciting shirt but it's a start. First thing I did was actually make the shirt, then I stitched the arms to keep them folded, and I may bleach it later. What do you think? Good for a first timer I believe, or hope? Comment telling me what else I should add to this shirt to make it crazy!
SEEYA. xxxx.

You've got me spendin'.

M:
I have $1,940.76 worth of clothes and accessories in my cart at Urbanoutfitters.com! Crazy right? I guess I just got caught up in all of their big tees and leather leggings! I love how their Urban Renewal clothes show a simple little picture tutorial of how you can make their clothes/accessories. I think i'm going to try it out? Wish me luck! I'll tell you how it turns out :/!
P.S... Still haven't figured out when I'll wear my new heels and dress that I talked about a couple posts back! Helppppppp...
Ciao! xxxx.

I turn my camera on tonight.

C:
I took this photo of mag yesterday holding my dads vintage camera, and we loved it because you can see the trees and sunset in the reflection of the lense. I wish it came out bigger because before I upload it was a giant! But I'm going to our family party today and I will be sure to get some good photographied shots:) ...+++

WELCOME BACK CASEY!.

M:
Welcome back Cas! I missed not having another person on the blog :( ^Above is a picture of Mary Kate Olsen. Some of you may think i'm crazy but i'm absolutely in love with her style, (and those funky sunglasses). I love her spin on the bohemian style, big shirt, baggy pants, and messy hair. There's a $5 sale at Urban Outfitters online, I think i'm going to buy a couple things. Still deciding on what, maybe a couple studded bracelets, off the shoulder shirts, skinny jeans, and some heels? Hmmmm... I'll tell you what I decide!
LOVE... xxxx.

Vintage Style

M:
Vintage inspired pictures of Casey and I, what do you think of them?I love the classic hippie headband look mixed with the vintage cross-body bag. Even though this look isn't high fashion or couture, it's still nice to go out in a pair of jean shorts and a baggy shirt once and awhile. Don't you think?
