FLY AWAY/shwings shoe wings

I purchased these wings at Kitson in LA.  Oh, how I wish they could just fly me away to a magic little world.  Unfortunately, they don't work like that...but they do add a bit a whimsy to my lace-up booties.

PAPER OR PLASTIC?/maison martin margiela for h&m plastic shopping bag

When I purchased the most recent batch of my Maison Martin Margiela x H&M, the girl that checked me out informed me that she was giving me a very special bag.  She told me that if I follow the instructions at the bottom of the bag, my little plastic bag could become a tank top.  Say what?!!  What a brilliant idea!!  I started to think of all the possibilities available with any plastic bag that I get at the stores...could it be possible to design a whole wardrobe around this idea?!  Well...I wouldn't go that far, but adding a few plastic bag tops to my wardrobe isn't a bad idea.  

I opted to not cut the armholes out completely and wear this plastic bag as an off-the-shoulder top.

WITH A CHERRY ON TOP/t by alexander wang boxer sweatpants

I was so anxious to shoot this ice cream cone necklace.  I'm always drawn to ice cream cones.  I love them on clothing, as well as in decor.  Perhaps it's because my favorite book as a child had an ice cream cone bird in it of my ultimate fashion regrets was a Chanel bag with an ice cream cone print.  One good memory and one bad...this necklace is one attempt to heal the pain of the bad.

I'VE GOT A GOLDEN TICKET/maison martin margiela for h&m candy wrapper clutch

Well...maybe it's not golden, but I definitely felt super lucky to score one of these Maison Martin Margiela for H&M candy wrapper clutches.  I had my heart set on the silver!  

This clutch was the absolute must-have piece from the collection for me.  I sent my mom to get it while I was working...lucky for me, the collection hasn't been that popular in Denver.  I seem to keep going back for more every few fact, I am probably due for another visit.  Stay tuned for many more posts featuring this exceptional collection.

MODERATELY INVISIBLE/maison martin margiela for h&m brown leather boots with invisible heel

I'm sure everyone is as excited as me about the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collection.  Yes, the collection is absolutely flawless...and you almost wonder if they skimped at all on production costs.  It's perfect, right?  I thought so.  And so...I decided to purchase a few items.  

Here's a couple of my purchases from the collection...

In the spirit of Margiela, check out Digital Vacancy's use of the Margiela for H&M garment bag at SEE/homme.

IN FLIGHT/vintage flight jacket

Wearing a vintage flight jacket that I purchased at a flea market in New York.  I was feeling pretty cool when I found this jacket, but I found about a dozen of them at the army surplus store just last week.  Oh well...still a great find.

TO YOU, MY DEER/alexander wang bette up front mules

As promised, here is the other wonderful purchase from the Fancy Tiger Boutique.  Yep, I purchased a pin for my new camo jacket and it couldn't be cuter.  This pin is by Becky's Buttons & Things.  I just love the little bit of fantasy that she captures with each one of her creations.  I feel like I want to buy up her entire online shop and surround myself with her delicate creations, just to remind myself that magic really does exist.

DEAR HEART/junk heart jewelry banner necklace

Shopping down South Broadway is one of my favorite things to do in Denver.  The little shops offer everything from unique knick-knacks to clothing to great vintage finds.  I made a trip last week to some of the Broadway boutiques and I found myself falling in love with a couple of items at the Fancy Tiger Boutique.  And when I fall in love, I fall hard.  

Check out this necklace...isn't it amazing?!  Just when I thought I was going to leave the boutique empty-handed, I saw this glimmering on the counter.  The line is called Junk Heart Jewelry and the designer is based out of Boulder, Colorado.  I chose "Dear Heart" but they had other sayings too; or you could just opt for a blank banner.  This is a perfect necklace for layering and looks killer with my vintage locket.  

P.S. Will be posting my other Fancy Tiger Boutique item soon...and it's a goodie, so stay tuned!

SKIN & BONES/kiki riki leggings

Loving my new camo jacket from the army surplus shop up the street.  I saw so much camo in Iceland that I was completely inspired to visit my local shop when I got home.  Can't beat the price either...only $25 for this cutie and it's pretty warm too!
