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.
