i was so happy to be able to enjoy the first weeks of fall this year...the last few years i was up to my eyeballs in school work.
my boyfriend and i visited a farm/pumpkin patch last weekend. and though the weather was super hot, we still had a great time...
my friends had a pumpkin carving party that same night, complete with homemade donuts and whiskey and cider cocktails
i planned on being a rose (le petit prince!) for halloween, so i used that as an excuse to dye my hair red (my bad mirror shots are the reason i am not a fashion blogger)
in my sinus infection-fueled haze, i painstakingly sewed rose petals onto a red dress that i bought years ago and i didn't actually try it on until the night of the costume party. alas, my derrière was too big. i made a makeshift skirt with some coral chiffon i had lying around, but it was quite uncomfortable. so, i broke out my krylon face paint and my rose & marigold headband and went with my old trusty: a calavera...

today i stamped up my recycled cardboard packaging for more needle lace necklaces to be sold at the usuals on the alameda in san jose...
i decided to drive down to the shop with my friend, laura, instead of shipping the necklaces and i'm glad i did! here are a few photos...
this dress was styled with a super cute bow belt, which i somehow managed not to photograph
had to take this one for my boyfriend who is a huge sharks fan...
they had a lot of amazing beaded jewelry...
we got to chat with marie who co-owns the store with her brother. she also graduated from cca a few years back...it's so inspiring to see other art school alumni doing their own thing and doing it well! the usuals is a great shop that supports local and independent makers...go there!
oh. also we ate at flame's, near santana row...i liked the decor :)
