Yesterday, I went into New Orleans with Brandon and we visited the No Fleas Market, a resale shop which supports animal welfare. When someone donates clothing, they choose which animal rescue they would like the profits to go towards. I got this great long sweater there, and Brandon found a sportcoat and hoodie. I may turn him into a thrift shopper yet!

I’m really happy to be posting on this blog again.
Friday was the opening of my college’s BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) show. Several of my graphic design pieces were on display!
I love any excuse to dress fancy, so I broke out the velvet. The dress actually has a beautiful open back, but I forgot to photograph it unfortunately.

My mom, Melissa, and boyfriend, Brandon, are also looking great, but they didn’t get their clothes from Goodwill! :P
On Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, John and I went to Bay St. Louis for an unexpected mini beach vacation! Their downtown area was really charming, there were antique shops, gift shops, and little cafes.

For Mother’s Day, my mom wanted to go bike riding. “That’ll be great,” I thought foolishly, “I will look so cute on our fun little day trip!” 20 miles and four hours later….I realized I was wrong.

That backpack is SOOOOO 90's, I love it! The 90's are making a comeback in my mind, but I'm not sure that everyone else agrees. This was pretty helpful on the bike trip, it was lightweight and small but could still fit everything I needed.
And this is how the trip ended. It’s quite possible that I died and my spirit is writing this post right now. 20 miles…..it was crazy!!!
Good afternoon! I didn’t know today would be so icky and rainy when I got dressed. Lucky for me, I happened to choose a navy and white sweater that matches my umbrella. I didn’t even realize til later!

If you’re interested in the necklace, it comes from the etsy store Moon Raven Designs (http://www.etsy.com/shop/mrd74?ref=top_trail). A quote from the artist:
“I used the real skull to make a mold into which I cast a medium which shrinks proportionally as it cures. From that prototype casting, I made another silicone mold of the now miniaturized skull and cast a resin version that was sent off to my local foundry to be copied in hard metal. This little fellow is totally three dimensional, even the bottom has the detail of the original.”
