I was just telling my friend about how much I miss this show today!
my trip to New Orleans :)
In scornful upright loneliness they stand,
Counting themselves no kin of anything
Whether of earth or sky. Their gnarled roots cling
Like wasted fingers of a clutching hand
In the grim rock. A silent spectral band
They watch the old sky, but hold no communing
With aught. Only, when some lone eagle’s wing
Flaps past above their grey and desolate land,
Or when the wind pants up a rough-hewn glen,
Bending them down as with an age of thought,
Or when, ‘mid flying clouds that can not dull
Her constant light, the moon shines silver, then
They find a soul, and their dim moan is wrought
Into a singing sad and beautiful.
- Robinson Jeffers
I am SO excited about my red bag. It is a vintage Nordstrom item from the 80’s that my mother has since given me. The gold chains used to be worn elongated on both ends, like shoulder style length. I took them out, hoping to use the bag as a clutch, but the awkward holes upset the overall look.
Instead I opted to lace the once shoulder straps into the holes. The gold chains, now a stylistic feature, really add to the charm of the purse. What’s more, this bag is real leather! I have vehemently refused to wear anything faux for the entirety of my childhood, and still would rather wear nothing at all if it isn’t real. I was worried about the grandness of said “clutch”, as normally they are tiny, but am fine with the size now… Eeee fun with clothes!
Oh man, and I almost forgot. So the dress is a vintage “LIMITED” dress. I found it at this really cute clothing boutique next door to my church, owned by two women of color. Fittingly called: “The Chic Shack”… It’s on H street in D.C.
The shoes, forgot the brand, though real leather heels :) And lastly, brown leggings - Forever 21.
