*tshirt some dude gave me that i cut up into a tank, UO shorts that i also cut up, boots given to me from my rad boss, gifted KONSTANTINO bracelet, UO hat, vintage peruvian llama bag, DIY dreamcatcher necklace that i made 2 years ago and never wear.
it's such a gorgeous day!!! if you don't know already, i HATE winter and everything that comes along with it (ie: dressing for the cold. not my steeze.) i feel 100% myself in attire appropriate for a 90 degree day at the beach. ie: this outfit.
i've been searching for the perfect flat brimmed black hat for months now, and just so happened to find this one at urban outfitters the other day. i'm not really a hat person, but i have a feeling i'm going to be wearing this with pretty much everything for awhile. hats have a strange way of completing an outfit no matter what.
(so here is the promised photo of the llama bag. insane, right?)
okay, on to the good stuff...
madeline works at konstantino, a high-end jewelry company sold most notably at neiman marcus. when she sent me a text message proclaiming that she had a $900 gold and silver bracelet with my name on it... i pretty much freaked out. i have NEVER in my LIFE owned anything this nice- part of me thinks i should have the clasp soldered shut so it will absolutely never come off of my wrist.
my bracelet is sterling silver and 18k gold, designed and handmade in athens, greece... as is all of their jewelry. konstantino is definitely one of the most ethical companies out there right now- supporting individual artisans and women while donating to charities and not practicing exploitation for financial gain (ie: outsourcing to china, bali, etc)
i've never been so proud and honored to wear a piece of jewelry before. you should really check out all of their stuff on the neiman marcus website- there are some amazing pieces that are semi-afforable, depending on your budget, such as this gorgeous pendant for $120: here
thank you madeline!!!
