the bounty hunter










My friend Andrew really did wonders for my personal happiness yesterday. He's currently living in this old couples upscale home in Mt. Pleasant just living and working on the house-and cultivating an incredible array of beautiful keepsakes from strangers. He let me root through some garbage bags of purged items and I found this incredible selection of nude photographs of the diseased man's wife and a bountiful load of other beautiful snapshots; an antique exposure meeter for film camera's with a leather case, some other odds and ends and the coup de gras was my choice of hats! He allowed me one to take home so I chose this gorgeous vintage saks fifth avenue heather grey bowler cap with a chin strap that is to die for! It was my dream day...and I thank Andrew immensely for my pirate booty now nestled happily among the rents of my clutter.

boyfriend manual

I've been gone forever. I'm terrible at keeping up with internet appearances; especially when I have so much real life going on. Real life; and new life. I got a new boyfriend :) WE're very compatible-and I love all his friends. Which has never happened to me before. However; he's 21 and I'm 23. The actual numbers are not a problem but the experiences are. There are things I expect of him that he doesn't understand. So aside from being adorable; I hope one day he can be reliable. And we can live happily ever after among the flowers and weeds. Also; Robbi and I were the resident makeup artists for the Charleston Youth Company Production of the Little Mermaid. Look how amazing these girls are.

dirty pretty things

black straw fedora: thrifted in savannah
striped long sleeve blouse: thrifted
brown leather woven belt: thrifted

I went to savannah for the day with my mom, older brother and grandmother. It was essentially a trip to go to the beach, visit SCAD, and go thrifting. But what great trip isn't? I recently applied to Savannah College of Art and Design with my visual art portfolio and some photos (which is primarily what I would like to focus on) and I simply wanted to get a lay of the land down there in Georgia. I absolutely love the campus; not to mention the city is ever so charming. Crossing my fingers for the letter in the mail that I've been accepted...so I can get on with the life I've wanted for myself for so long.

Post Script:
I got two pairs of these amazing leggings that look like jeans! They fit great and aren't too bulky like true denim...I got them in a sort of ash black and bright blue. New wardrobe staples. Also I cleaned out my wardrober and color coded all garments. I feel like a new woman...venturing back into girl world with light and feathery baby steps.
