Summer Pointelle


In my last post, I briefly mentioned by obsession with lace-up/combat boots-- I'll wear them with skirts, shorts, dresses, pants, anything! I love how they give an edge to this otherwise feminine outfit.




Let's take a moment to talk about this watch. Back in May, my co-worker and I attended Unique LA, a made-in-america type event with local vendors. After spending a couple hours browsing (and of course, taking advantage of free treat samples and drinks!), I came across a booth for Pretty For Peanuts. Besides having a ridiculously cute name, the shop features handmade, custom jewelry and accessories-- the designer, who unfortunately was not at the booth when I made my purchase, creates these amazing mixed media wrap watches using vintage watch faces-- how cool is that?!?

With bands of pink and gold, this watch immediately caught my attention and I had to have it. $40 later it was mine! Her Etsy shop is definitely worth a peek-- she designs rings, necklaces, and offers custom orders for her watches.
