Shop Girl

There is a slight edge to my smile when someone compliments me on an outfit, especially because over the past two years I’ve developed an entirely thrifted wardrobe.

My roommate and I are cleansing our closets in hopes of sharing the love of unique and vintage finds with you! As well as compressing our wardrobes to fit into suitcases.

Our lives are in these clothes. From hiking and writing poems. From performing and appearing in BuzzFeed videos . . . That’s the cool thing about buying second-hand. The stories. And now you get the opportunity to write the next chapter.

Which is why, with each purchase, we plan to include a handwritten note about some of the fun experiences and places we wore these clothes.

The Depop Shop is heating up! So be such to check it out and snag the items you love.

*All funding is going towards the upcoming summer 2017, “The Naked Heart Tour.” I have been away from blogging for a minute. The past two weeks have been fully devoted to contacting venues, researching fees, and creating promotional materials to make this project a reality! As lead cinematographer, I will not only be supporting two of my college friends, but have the opportunity to film the entire journey which will later be submitted to film festivals. Be sure to check back on the blog for more insight into this tour and the behind the scenes prep.

Brunch Ballad

I find myself wondering, “Why have I never attended Gospel Brunch at the Sioux City Conservatory of Music before today?!” The music was spectacular, the people were kindhearted, the food was oh so delicious, and the atmosphere was charming.

Today they celebrated Sister Rosetta Tharpe, one of the greats who dared to sing her spiritual music in bars and spread His message. So inspirational!

I’m kickin’ it in a floral dress and my worn in combat boots. (These little black things are too precious to give up in the humidity) I had a blast and definatley plan on becoming a regular!
