We continued wandering through this abandoned village and came across a little shed with faded green paint. This was the perfect spot for another look. Luckily, I brought a few additional outfits in case we find a different setting for our photoshoot. So here it is:
I am not a big spender, I don't buy big logo brands. In fact, I believe that anyone can have quite a trendy wardrobe without spending a lot. Believe it or not, I still have a few vintage jackets I got back in high school. I still wear them. Who doesn't have something like that in their closet?
Don't get me wrong, you should dress to impress, and if you need to take on a more expensive route, go for it. As long as it all pays off! I do splurge once in a while too but that's in another blog post.
Jacket: American Eagle (ca. 2004)
Dress: Lucky Brand (ca. 2005)
Boots: Colin Stuart (ca.2006)
Hand Made Jewelry: Rebel Ideal:
Sugar Skull Ring (Brass - from USD 89.00, Silver - from USD 110)
Bird Wing Necklace (USD 289)
The bird skull is actually hand made by me. Some designers use real bird skulls to make rubber or silicone molds out of them and then make jewelry. I prefer to keep birds alive, and make skulls myself using my skills and imagination. My jewelry models are first carved out of block of wax, and then made via lost wax casting process. No dead animals!
PS: Though there was a dead bird near that shed, which got completely decomposed and we could only see its dried skull, bones and a few feathers. Chad even took a picture of it. I just think it's too gross to show it here. Poor birdie!
