Making a Reversible Earring from A Broken Threader

8.15.2018


















Somehow, some way, I broke a pearl threader earring I've had since high school. 
Inspired by Grainne Morton, I decided to see if I could combine 'er with a teeny tiny diamond stud I have had since I was a kid. Worn with my single Catbird ballerina chain earring, I thiiiiink I like it even more when I wear the pearl towards the back of my ear.

Lounge to Lake

-wearing-
Deta bathing suit in Petrol 
Vintage slip dress
Mlouye mini lantern bag 
ASOS White jeans 

Here's the fabulous thing about this bathing suit: It's my favorite for transitioning from inside to swimtime. If I'm not sure about whether or not I'm going to jump in a lake or a pool or an open fire hydrant on Wilson avenue, I'll wear this set and be perfectly content with the option- and that's exactly what happened at Lake George, pictured here, when we stopped lakeside during our road trip to Montreal.

Shoutout to Anna Bergen, who founded Deta in the spirit of her late Grandmother. She keeps Deta a handmade house, designing and producing the line alongside local seniors who crochet and finish each set by hand and machine. Check out the rest of the line here

Madewell shoes 

-beauty notes-
Mascara: MILK Ubame mascara 
Brow tint/gel: Benefit Gimme Brow


Took these a while back, I hate to admit it.
 I have been wrapped up in the joy of breaking in a new apartment with the boy, but I guess the one thing that hasn't changed is the balmy, humid heat of Brooklyn- which prompted me to wear this light vintage nightgown in public like it ain't no thang.

Frankie was dear enough to stop by my place and chill for a bit, take a walk, allow me to give him a tour of our apartment and play with accessories. 
Anyone who knows me or has hung out with me at length knows that once you get me started on a piece or a line that I can't get enough of- well, I just can't stop talking. This cotton, indigo-dyed purse is hand knit by Peruvian artisans in Lima, and Mozh Mozh is dedicated to honoring the skills of the Shipibo-Conibo people. I mean, if you think this purse is sweet, look at this incredibly delicate and ethereal beaded purse like, couldn't you just die?!

I made it a point to pair the knit bag with my favorite knit top. Sometimes I call it my harlequin sweater, and sometimes I'll put it on, thinking about Renaissance garments with the eyelets and vents in them so that people could poke their linen tunics through the holes. I opted for more skin with my gingham wrap dress.
