Hello all! I am pretty pleased with these earrings I made around Christmas time. I took rubber bats from Halloween ($2.88 per pack of 16, at the time), affixed gold jumprings, chain, and fancy gold ear hooks. Takes like five minutes, and they look so cool, especially in the dark, as they GLOW! They are reeeeally big and swing around violently, but that is exactly how I want all my earrings to be. Thoughts?

 

New etsy store, The Betwixt Boutique

So, I decided I wanted to create a more recognizable image for my etsy shop. I made a new one, and this time I named it “The Betwixt Boutique.”

Here are some of the lovely vintage items you’ll find in my shop:

I’ve haven’t been much of a fashionista lately, if I’m honest. I started a new job in March at an optometry office. This is my first job that I’ve actually worked full-time. I find it hard to much of anything after work, because I work long hours. There’s little reason to put anything nice or exciting on. I’d like to find some less boring work clothes — especially pants. It’s a work in progress.

I promise I will post some personal outfits soon. I swear!

Fashion Icon: Stevie Nicks, THE Gold Dust Woman

Stevie Nicks is one of my favorite female musicians. She is so talented and beautiful, but her fashion ain’t bad either. In her younger days with Fleetwood Mac she wore a lot of fairy like things — silky, flowing dresses, suede pixie boots, and so on. Later in her career, her look could be characterized as withcy — still similar to her old style, but matured and darker.

Hats off to you, Stevie. You’re amazing.
