Black Velvet Goldmine

You might have already seen an IG post about these YRU velvet platforms I got at a massive sale a few months ago at DollsKill.  They were like $30.  They are actually even more expensive now, so I'm happy I got them when I did.

I LOVE the rainbow laces.  I have a 'thing' for rainbows.
Purple velvet skirt is thrifted.  I think I may have mentioned here that velvet is happening now, right? 
Also, the massive FreePeople cuff that I've practically lived in since I got it...  Mentioned previously here.  Plus, a vintage flea market ring, and a little DIY crystal ring.  Aaaaand a bacon band-aid.  It was a good-bye gift from one of the X-man's work friends, but let's be honest, I am a hot clumsy mess and use all the band-aids. 

Another one of my favorite vintage necklaces, bought from another vendor where I used to have a booth, details here

I was wearing these in a thrift store the day of the Asheville Mardi Gras parade--doing a little shopping before joining in the revelry--and this girl was wheeling around a dude in a wheelchair and when she saw my shoes she was basically like, YES!  Later, they were checking out in the line before me with like, a massive toaster, I mean I swear this thing had like 8 slots for bread.  It was insane.  They were going on and on about how much toast they were going to make!  lolzzzzz

So, I'm totally hooking up to Bella's ShoeShine!!!!!  C U there!

Love & Light,
