Kitsch Picks : FiMachine

FiMachine makes amazing faux leather cosmetic bags, messenger bags, hips belts, etc. inspired by goth, dark and fantasy. 

*Side note about Kitsch Picks: I stopped doing Kitsch Picks as I didn't want to create "want", I just like to share some neat independent designers or items of interest. I am bringing back Kitsch Picks back as I like to help promote these people and possibly hip you to something that you will love.

Thank you for reading!

Fuzzy Leopard Sweater

A trip to Target a few weeks ago had me walking out with a new long sleeve t-shirt (for layering!) and this fuzzy gold/black leopard cardigan for under $9. I always have my eye out for patterned cardigans to pair with my (what has become) staple casual outfit has morphed into. I still love my leggings and skater dress combo, but I am enjoying wearing pants and have a new pair coming my way via mail.

I'm filling in the gaps in my wardrobe and it feels good to make choices that I know I will use and love. Of course, I still want to obtain those fun fashion pieces too. *Wink*

It was Derek's birthday Tuesday, so I am wearing a necklace he made for me along with a black button up shirt (thrift), black high waist pants (old, Target) with my new fuzzy cardigan sweater. 

The necklace is a bone cross in resin that Derek hand molded and it's one of my favorite pieces. Derek is a man of many talents, I am a lucky gal....and sentiment. But don't tell. Shhhhhhhh!

Featuring Brocade Bats

I stumbled down the etsy window shopping hole and discovered the darling little shop, Brocade Bats. I ordered two pieces, the wooden tile Eye of Horus necklace (sold out) and the spider webs necklace. Both pieces were a steal and I knew would be worn again and again.

Even though the wooden tile Eye of Horus necklace is on a longer chain, I ordered the necklace with the intent to wear it shorter to place under collar shirts. It also never crossed my mind to wear these two pieces together, but heck, why not?! I'm a big fan of layering necklaces, especially ones as versatile as these two.

*Items purchased by me and this post is not sponsored

I love finding little treasures on etsy, do you have any favorite etsy shops?

Back From Florida

Moai's greeting you at Grind

We decided a sort of 'last minute' trip to visit my parents in Florida...and by last minute in my world means we only planned a month in advance. I mentioned my Father is having some health problems, meaning he's been diagnosed with cancer. He has already had some procedures done and is in the best hands in terms of my Mother and his team of doctors, but I'm still scared and with being so far away it makes my fears even worse. Though it's the best case scenario with catching everything early, there is a long road of treatments ahead.

We left very early last Monday morning and arrived in Daytona Beach to the smiling faces and embrace of my parents. After stripping off layers of clothing and freshening up a bit, we had lunch at the Grind Gastropub &Kona Bar in Ormond Beach. We visited the restaurant when it was called Caffeine Wine Bar & Bistro and I'm soooooo glad they changed ownership, it's much more amazing now!

This is the only time my hair looked descent, I forgot about the humidity! LOL! That's why I brought hair scarves!

Mom and Dad coordinating without even knowing it!

Grind's food was amazing, the Tiki drinks were sort 'eh', but the decor made up for it!

Amongst other things we did during the week, we visited the Silver Springs state park and went on the glass bottoms boats. I'm a nerd for anything that has some history and the glass bottoms boats have been running for 100 years!

The spring's were beautiful and the boat ride was very relaxing. I was glad my Father was feeling up to the activities and enjoyed the visit. 

It was a gorgeous day and perfect for making memories <3

I miss my parents already, but I'm happy to be home.

Throwback Thursday : Club Edition

Danielle and I at the (now defunct) Continental in very early 2000's. That bondage dress I'm wearing was amazing and I wish I had held onto it!
