Bite the Bullet

Outfit details: Black cardigan: UO sale section, skinny suspenders: Hot Topic (D;), striped shirt: H&M, jeans: Levi's, boots: thrifted, rip off Doc Marten's, scarf: vintage from San Fran

It's been raining buckets in Southern California which is unusual for the area. I haven't seen it rain this hard for this long in...well, ever. Anyway, what I wore to go thrifting and run some Holiday related errands.


Secondly...

**For those who wondered, yes it is difficult for me to part with the majority of the items I buy for my store because I first and foremost buy things that I like and would wear! Quite the conundrum. But I also like making money sooooooo it's give and take. If something is too amazing I'll often keep it for myself though. I'm a bit greedy in that way. Whatevs!**

Two snaps of some items I've found for my store. The blazer is made out of the softest and smoothest wool and is cut so nicely! If you wear an XS/S and are in the market for a camel blazer maybe you should take a peek?

Now onto this perfect cross body bag! In almost deadstock condition with the nicest shape and pebbled texture! A real beaut :)

and lastly, I made a video!
A few things: I don't know why, but when I uploaded the video from photobooth movie,Youtube cut off space above my head so it's making it look like my face/body isn't in frame. Well just so you know, it originally was! I'll try to sit farther back to accommodate for this in upcoming videos.

Secondly, umm.....yep. This is me! This is what I sound like and that is what my room looks like behind me. Isn't it funny when you hear a recording of yourself and think, " Why am I talking like this??" Very strange how the voice you use inside your head is often incongruous with the voice that you actually speak with!

I tried to keep things short and to limit the "um, likes, you knows" so...yes. Hopefully this isn't too awkward :)

Ooh and lastly, Asa! Hi! Okay I keep trying to comment on your blog and blogspot never lets me. It cuts the comment box in half so I literally cannot click on it >:O...i'll have to find a way around this!

  17. Heyyy, miss Ashley. I was relieved to hear that you have a nice, normal voice (but I think I find West Coast accents less pronounced in general.. I guess cos I'm from there too)! I like your wooden skeleton kit, and those sweet sunglasses!

  24. You made a video, yay! I hope you continue to make more videos. I heard all about the rain you guys are getting, crazy!

  25. Great outfit! The suspenders and Docs are awesome, I have some suspenders myself but they always break because they are cheap and shitty. But you have inspired me to try again with them haha. Cute video too, it's always fun the hear what bloggers actually sound like, you'll never catch me doing one though, my accent (although I have a touch of American in it from living with my boyfriend for two years) is embarrassing as hell

  27. Oh you're such a cutie!

    I think I would struggle with that, selling vintage that I had bought and liked. I would probably just end up buying way too much clothing for myself!

  31. Haha, my brother hates raisins, too. And the first thing he said about my beer bread was that it looked really delicious but that he would pick out all the raisins. :P

    I had no idea it'd snow here, either. It's so warm these days I wonder if it's going to snow again.

    I love your boots!

  35. Oh my god, I want that wooden skeleton making kit! I LOVE skeletons... not in a xXpUnKxX way or something, I just think they're really cool! I memorized all the bones when I was a kid and I still know 'em, hehe.

    I love your Docs! I was watching Ghost World the other day and pining for a pair.

    Your video was cute and fun! Are you from Minnesota? You have a little bit of an accent when you say "found" :) It's really adorable!

  36. ooh I can't wait to watch this when I'm not around my sleeping siblings! ;) your outfit is gorgeous though, LOVE the little suspenders!

  38. Everything about this is absolutely wonderful. I have difficulties with incorporating suspenders, but you've done such a nice job.

    I always love your thrift finds, and yes, I totally understand how you feel. Luckily, the majority of what I find and fall in love with doesn't fit me...so I get to satisfy the retail "score" and make some money on the side.

    You should make more videos, your voice is lovely.

    Happy holidays!
