I purchased these wings at Kitson in LA. Oh, how I wish they could just fly me away to a magic little world. Unfortunately, they don't work like that...but they do add a bit a whimsy to my lace-up booties.
When I purchased the most recent batch of my Maison Martin Margiela x H&M, the girl that checked me out informed me that she was giving me a very special bag. She told me that if I follow the instructions at the bottom of the bag, my little plastic bag could become a tank top. Say what?!! What a brilliant idea!! I started to think of all the possibilities available with any plastic bag that I get at the stores...could it be possible to design a whole wardrobe around this idea?! Well...I wouldn't go that far, but adding a few plastic bag tops to my wardrobe isn't a bad idea.
I opted to not cut the armholes out completely and wear this plastic bag as an off-the-shoulder top.
I was so anxious to shoot this ice cream cone necklace. I'm always drawn to ice cream cones. I love them on clothing, as well as in decor. Perhaps it's because my favorite book as a child had an ice cream cone bird in it and...one of my ultimate fashion regrets was a Chanel bag with an ice cream cone print. One good memory and one bad...this necklace is one attempt to heal the pain of the bad.
Well...maybe it's not golden, but I definitely felt super lucky to score one of these Maison Martin Margiela for H&M candy wrapper clutches. I had my heart set on the silver!
This clutch was the absolute must-have piece from the collection for me. I sent my mom to get it while I was working...lucky for me, the collection hasn't been that popular in Denver. I seem to keep going back for more every few days..in fact, I am probably due for another visit. Stay tuned for many more posts featuring this exceptional collection.
I'm sure everyone is as excited as me about the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collection. Yes, the collection is absolutely flawless...and you almost wonder if they skimped at all on production costs. It's perfect, right? I thought so. And so...I decided to purchase a few items.
Here's a couple of my purchases from the collection...

Wearing a vintage flight jacket that I purchased at a flea market in New York. I was feeling pretty cool when I found this jacket, but I found about a dozen of them at the army surplus store just last week. Oh well...still a great find.
As promised, here is the other wonderful purchase from the Fancy Tiger Boutique. Yep, I purchased a pin for my new camo jacket and it couldn't be cuter. This pin is by Becky's Buttons & Things.
I just love the little bit of fantasy that she captures with each one
of her creations. I feel like I want to buy up her entire online shop
and surround myself with her delicate creations, just to remind myself
that magic really does exist.
Shopping down South Broadway is one of my favorite things to do in Denver. The little shops offer everything from unique knick-knacks to clothing to great vintage finds. I made a trip last week to some of the Broadway boutiques and I found myself falling in love with a couple of items at the Fancy Tiger Boutique. And when I fall in love, I fall hard.
Check out this necklace...isn't it amazing?! Just when I thought I was going to leave the boutique empty-handed, I saw this glimmering on the counter. The line is called Junk Heart Jewelry and the designer is based out of Boulder, Colorado. I chose "Dear Heart" but they had other sayings too; or you could just opt for a blank banner. This is a perfect necklace for layering and looks killer with my vintage locket.
P.S. Will be posting my other Fancy Tiger Boutique item soon...and it's a goodie, so stay tuned!
Loving my new camo jacket from the army surplus shop up the street. I saw so much camo in Iceland that I was completely inspired to visit my local shop when I got home. Can't beat the price either...only $25 for this cutie and it's pretty warm too!
