Ripped distressed tie-dyed candy.

Bronze thrifted Goodwill crochet top, Brown thrifted belt, Dark red thrifted Wasteland tie-dye distressed shorts, Ivory vintage Chanel purse, Thrifted rings/necklaces/DIY bracelet, gifted LUXLA bracelet, Tawny thrifted Crossroads Aldo booties.

The last photo looks as if I'm in a wild jungle with all the leaves behind me...but then I see that cement reminding me I'm actually in the suburbs. lol. Anyways, I really was so excited to share with you my latest thrift find!!  I found these amazing and super unique distressed Levis at Wasteland this past week thrifting with my high school girlfriends on Haight st.  Was such a steal too, only $30!  Soo happy I bought them :).
In a way this outfit reminds me of Pocahantas lol, with the feather earrings, reds/browns, and with all the leaves in the background.  Hey maybe it'll be inspiration to be Pocahantas for halloween this year? lol jk. I wanna try my hand at being, as what the Glee Principal said: Key-Dollar Sign-Ha, Ke$ha ;).

I have my suitcase all ready waiting to be filled with all my clothes for my LA trip next week.  Really excited!  Planning to visit just about everywhere I can w/ my roomie and shop for our apartment next year at cool flea markets.  Also of course blogger meet-ups!  Will pack my trusty Nikon D60 along for the ride.  Lots of pictures to come!! (& possibly video too!) :).

I hope you all will have a great weekend ahead!! Now I'm off to get lots of inspiration from your amazing blogs.  Good night Beautifuls! 

♥, Kathleen.
