Vintage Vest

vintage vestvintage vestvintage vest

This vintage vest is unique, a bit obnoxious, and anything but ordinary. I haven’t braved to wear it to any of my classes or out in public yet, I just need some more time 😉 My friends have called me Pioneer Woman in it, and mentioned that some of the photos are fit for an “Explore North Dakota” billboard campaign. Regardless, this vintage vest is a gem, and I am bringing it to Milwaukee with me!

Meanwhile I am listening to Ophelia by Lumineers on repeat, binge watching Girls at night, and waiting to register for my Accounting class. Happy Wednesday!


Handbag Designer Patricia Nash in Minneapolis TODAY!

Today after class I’ll be heading down to Mall of America to interview a handbag and accessory designer Patricia Nash. She is here in Minneapolis premiering her new collection! As soon as I took a peek at the designs, I knew I was going to love it. There is that boho/vintage feel around every single piece, and the collection is so unique and personal, it makes it even better. Plus if you are into boho, like me, I know it will be straight up your alley!

I is for Indie {A-Z Challenge}

I is for Indie, and indie is trendy. I learned that back in 2006, and haven’t forgotten it since. Indie to me means a symbiosis of styles, pieces, and eras. Indie to me is taking time to make (sew, knit, crochet, embroider, …) my own clothes. Indie to me is thrifting and looking for inspiration in the vintage pieces I find.

Indie to me is wearing cowboy boots to work, and being proud of it! What does indie mean to you?

Affordable Costume Jewelry from

I first learned about GoFavor around this time last year. I remember my two favorite thrift twins (Steph & Melissa from TheFashionCitizen) did a haul and a giveaway sponsored by that store. I didn’t really pay that much attention to it back then! But then something happened, well that something was me going into Len Outlet and seeing how expensive everything was, so I decided I could spare $20 and get some necklaces, that would most likely be unique to Minneapolis.

I spent about $23, and got 8 pieces, which I think are pretty awesome, one of them is very nerdy, and reminds me of this computer game called Machinarium, that Sam got for me once. Does that now make me a hipster? Nah, but let me stop talking and show you what I got:

Don’t you just dig it all? Well maybe not all, but most of it! I especially love the Owl Pendant, it was only 99c!

I was originally going to post a picture of every single one of those necklaces separately, but I figured it’s a lot better to just give you links. And pictures of all these pieces incorporated into my outfits will be gradually posted on my blog 🙂

Now you gotta let me know which one of these you liked the most and which one you liked the least!



Впервые я услышала о сайте GoFavor около года назад. Я помню видео девчонок близняшек  (Steph и Melissa с канала TheFashionCitizen) – в нем они рассказывали о своих покупках и делали раздачу призов, предоставленных этим он-лайн магазином. И в том году мне как-то было на все это наплевать! Но в этом году что-то изменилось, скорее всего мне просто захотелось дешевых украшений, потому что после того, как я зашла в магазин Len Outlet и посмотрела на цены, я решила, что стоит потратить $20 и купить бижутерию с более дешевого сайта, плюс такие украшения вряд ли будут у кого-то еще в Миннеаполисе.

Итак, на $23 я купила 8 украшений, которые, как мне кажется подойдут ко многим моим аутфитам, одно из этих украшений достаточно гиковое и напоминает мне компьютерную игру Машинариум, которую мне подарил Сэм. Не знаю делает ли это меня хипстером, но хватит болтовни, я покажу вам что я приобрела!

Классно, правда? Украшение с совой стоило всего 99 центов! Изначально я хотела показать вам каждый предмет по отдельности, но потом решила, что обойдусь ссылками )))

Всем отличного дня!
