thrifted top, thritted shorts, purse from the black market, erin wasson triangle necklace, belt from buffalo exchange, spike friendship ring c/o my little fish eye, dog from the streets of orange county

The majority of what I have been wearing lately has been thrifted or upcycled and this has consequently got me interested in a small goal. If you ever listen to lectures on, you may have heard this speech about not stating goals publicly, but instead talking about your goal after you have accomplished it. The instant gratification we get after getting praised about our upcoming goal frequently shatters the road to the goal itself, because the accomplishment has already been rewarded before we even start. I understand that this is true, and for whatever reason goal stating is a HUGE pet peeve of mine (which I have talked about before, I know, I know.) I don't feel overly ambitious about stating my small, accomplishable goal for the next month because I am currently in the middle of it. For February and March I am only purchasing thrifted clothing (this excludes shoes and jewelry). When I triumphantly reach the end of March, I may tack another month on to it. I am somewhat of a clothing hoarder and buyer doing loads of online shopping, so this is a rather large game plan in my world. As of now, this month has been a success. The reason for this thrifting notion is to achieve a much larger goal. My lips are sealed, though, until said secret larger aim is accomplished. But really, thrifting is great anyway. I've noticed that some Goodwill locations have (finally!) arranged their racks by size. No more weeding through a bunch of XXL tops and dresses I wish would fit. Just a straight beeline to my section. If all the other thrift stores would figure this out I could be a speed thrift shopper to the max.

On a different note, how great is that spiked friendship ring? My Little Fish Eye makes great friendship accessories, much of them studded. I am excited to wear the bracelet she sent as well. Spikes4life. Spikes4evr. 

Song time.

I'm looking SO forward to Spring and you know what that means. No, not sandles. Psh, sandles. No. BOOTS. Boots forever. Boots year round, that's how I roll. I hope I'm not the only freak out there that hardly allows their feet to breathe. Above are some of my current drooled-over desires. Click on the matching number for the link. 

1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 56 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 12 - 13 - 14 - 15 - 16 - 17 - 18

Like patterns much?

jeans from wasteland, uo boots, uo beanie, artemis art necklace

I about had a heart attack when I had only the amount of time it takes to put together a skateboard to shop at Wasteland in San Francisco. I have awesome friends, though, who understood my panic and allotted me more time to shop around before we ventured off into the city. I found these RAD jeans along with a ton of other goodies. I plan on turning these bad boys into shorts when the weather permits.

I came home to a plethora of packages from companies, which honestly kind of stressed me out. Everything stresses me out, it seems (?).  But, I have decided to de-stress and slow down, focusing on the positive and spending more time self reflecting. Gifts are freaking positive, idiot Casey! I was sent this necklace by Artemis Art and I can't stop wearing it. I love the mixed metals and the organic shape of the eyes. Check out Artemis Art here. Some of my favorite pieces are this, this and this.

PS. Giveaway coming up soon. :-)

PPS. Can we please take a minute to bask in the glory that is this King Tut dress by Mara Hoffman? Holy CHIT, right?!

Just a few snapshots from the last 2 weeks of my month vacation. So much going on right now. I finally got a dog who takes up a ton of my time along with an unbelievable amount of things to catch up on and do now that I am back in Snowville (Miserableville, rather). I will be back to outfit posting as soon as I get over this sadness of being back and get things more situated around here. Life, man. I want to be back on the beach. 

It's weird not being on the internet during my "free" time. All I want to do is sleep. The snow and ice encourages me to do absolutely nothing. 

I wish I had photographed more, but my 2012 January vacation spots are as follows: 

Vail, CO
Reno and all over Nevada
Arches National Park
Moab National Park
All over Utah
New Mexico
Sedona, AZ (Best city EVER.)
Amarillo, TX
Oklahoma City, OK
Wichita, KS
Irvine, CA
Laguna Beach, CA
Huntington Beach, CA
Orange, CA
Newport Beach, CA
Costa Mesa, CA
Los Angeles, CA
West Hollywood, CA
San Francisco, CA
Vallejo, CA
....and I can't recall the rest, as I am exhausted and Sticky wants to go to bed.
