Wednesday item of the week in my Etsy Shop!

Instead of the usual 30% off I thought I'd post about the holiday sale I'm having! Right now, buy one pair of swoop earrings and get the second pair, of equal or lesser value, for 1/2 off!

Hope to see you in the Etsy Shop!

Utilitarian Frivolity

I’ve always had a love for fashion, for the way we dress, for the art of mixing different components to create an artful whole. But I have a very strong utilitarian streak - if it does the job, if the pair of pants fit, if the belt buckles, if the shoes keep the water out then it fits the bill. I get this from my dad. It’s a trait that helps me in many ways, carries me through difficult times, financial or otherwise, and plays a large role in the way I dress.

At this point in my life there are certain realities that limit the way I dress. I work at a coffee shop. My bicycle is my primary mode of transportation. I walk places a lot. And, quite frankly, I hate to be uncomfortable. I don’t think that awesome fashion has to sacrifice comfort.

I love to mix patterns, love to see how different colors work together. The fact that I get to spend my day wearing what I’ve put together pleases me to no end.

I post my outfit photos to Wardrobe Remix on Flickr every now and then, sometimes more often than others, it can be sporadic. While I in no way intend for this blog to become a fashion or outfit blog solely, I though it might be fun to every now and then show you what I’m wearing.

Today was mostly spent at home working, with a few errands on my bike thrown into the mix. The secret to this outfit: I’m wearing bike shorts under my skirt!

outfit details: skirt, belt, camisole, necklace and sweater - all thrifted ~ tights - Hue ~ booties - DSW ~ earrings - made by me

'Til next time!

Feria Urbana

December is upon us! And that means lots of fabulous arts and crafts faires all throughout the bay area for you to do your holiday shopping at.

I'll be at Feria Urbana this Thursday from 6 to 10 pm.

Drop by, say hello, and maybe pick up a new piece of jewelry for someone special in your life.
