Although the intention was to spend my entire break in boston, plans as they always do, changed. 2 days in boston. 1 day in philly. Went to the delphia to visit my other half. Dying without her. Victoria Kaufman. Maztrocity. The trip was actually a disaster (in the best way). Got Robbed. Bye phone. Bye Cash. Got a ticket. GPS grew a mind of it's own. Worst. But all in all, worth it. Took some good photos in center city, insomnia cookied our faces off, and became best friends with a verizon rep. Or possibly enemies. He either really hated us or really loved us. I pick love. Trip resulted with a new black berry and a pair of extremely worn in heels. Which are shockingly comfortable for the fact that theyre decently cheap. Recommended to everyone. Cheap, comfortable, and easy to get a hold of. Definitely require care though. Not the most well made shoe out there.

Shoot with only the best people on Monday. Enjoyable time.

Outfit consisted of an Amish dress that I found at a thrift store and proceed to alter, calvin klein tights, sam edelman boots.

Teased hair = 1 1/2 hour shower & a broken brush. Worth it.

It's Boston Baby.

Seth Darling, Why must you live ever so far from me.

Over break Alex, Anthony and I decided we needed to wear in my car and take a trip. Obviously chose to visit Seth in the loveliest city, Boston. Fabulous trip. We stumbled upon a Good Will that was literally a gold mine. Blew some major cash. I was so insanely close to buying this fur coat, until I realized that the lining was so shredded that I wasn't even able to put my arms in the sleeves without immense trouble. Still having dreams about it. Yeah, regret. That happens. Things that did make the trip back with me: vintage suede headband, vintage wide-brimmed hat, studded leather belt (currently finding it's use as a bracelet), cream knitted shaw/poncho (best combination out there), oversized sweater, and an authentic native american poncho (which I have been using as a scarf).
Table at Urban. I'm making one.

Also shopped Newbury Street. LF boston. WHAT DO YOU MEAN. This store shouldn't even be legal. It's wrong. Best selection of Jeffrey Campbell's. NEED the lita lace up. Can't decide if I wan't them in black, tan, or blue. This place needs to be in my closet. Just the store, as my closet.
Enamel: American Apparel, Jeans: Levi's, Heels: Sam Edelman.

Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, Lucky Brand, White Elephant Antiques.

Staying at Seth's in Allston was this summer all over again. Lucky Boy. He has the best set up. His place is marvelous. Loved the loft. And the vintage floral chairs. Also visiting with Danny and playing music in the living room and eating rice. For hours. He keeps telling me to live there, and maybe I just will.

On our way home we took an exit to grab some food and came across an amazing sculpture garden. Very modern. The work was great. Slight industrial feel. A literal playground for art majors. Ending this entry with my favorite image of the trip. Alex darling, rock those urban glasses.

vintage wallet. rings from forever 21, lucky brand, and white elephant antique store.

jewelry from the metropolitan
"Bohemia lies by the sea" by: Anselm Kiefer. Medium: Oil, emulsion, shellac, charcoal, and powdered paint on burlap.

Spent the day in NYC. The boys wouldn't let me go to an actual restaraunt for lunch and I was then forced to choose from the wide variety of the NYC vendors. Bought a $2 hot dog. I hate that. It was an even bigger let down than one of those masproduced fortune cookies with no fortune at all. Just false advice. Went to the Metropolitan and completely lost my sanity over the jewelry collection. Not sure how I can get my hands on these 4 objects but it must happen. Who would I even talk to about that? Shattered dream. Considering remaking the rams head bracelets. Not sure how. They're just too fantastic. I absolutely need one. Or three. Fell into a new artist. Anselm Kiefer. Absolutely fantastic. Almost like a more realistic and organized Pollock. This "Bohemia lies by the sea" piece was one of those stomach punching images. Stepping back. One. Two. Twenty. This landscape just appeared. Fabulous. Alex had the brilliant idea of finding an NYC salvation army. I think we walked 30 miles. On our way we passed a literal dog parade. Still not sure how those men pulled that little sherade off. The salvation army was pretty successful. Got some coats. Over all successful day. I enjoy subway rides. They're filthy, and entertaining. New York again soon. Minus the hot dog.

Women of the Woods.

Found this dream catcher in a van in Colorado. Photo Credit: Shannon Thomas

Come down from the mountain, you have been gone to long.
The spring is upon us; follow my only song, to settle down with me by the fire of my yearning hearth.
You should come back home, back on your own, now.

The world is alive now, in and outside our home.
You run through the forest settle deep for the sun.
Darling, I can barely remember you beside me oh.
You should come back home, back on your own, now.

You should come back home, back on your own, now.
And even in the night, when the women of the woods came by, to give to you the word of the old man.
And in the morning time, when the sparrow and the seagull fly, and Jonathan and Evelyn give tide.

Follow me if you will, at the top of Beringer Hill.
Tell me anything you want, any old lie will do.
Call me back to, back to you.
Lie to me if you will, at the top Beringer Hill.
Tell me anything you want, any old lie do.
Call me back to, back to you.
