Witchy Woman


One of the things I love about San Francisco is its rich artistic history. Scattered throughout the city  are statues of historical figures, dynamic sculptures, and colorful murals.  The monument featured in these photographs marks the entrance to the Panhandle Park and is reminiscent of San Francisco's grandeur during the early 1900's. Dedicated in 1904 to President William McKinley, it commemorates his economic policies and his campaign techniques. The stature has withstood the test of time, including the historic 1906 earthquake that destroyed much of San Francisco.

My love for Stevie Nicks and her ethereal fashion never ends. I found this amazing dress at a local thrift store and loved the velvet burnout detailing, the dramatic sleeves, and babydoll cut. The Southwestern-inspired bag is my newest purchase (for $5.00!) It is similar to Pendleton for Opening Ceremony but with a muted color palette. The shoes- a recent present from Matty- matched it perfectly (even if they are a little big for me). Oh well, I can't part with a good pair of heels.

Your shoes and bag are wonderful together! Perfectly matching, but not too 'matchy matchy'. I also love that second photo of you - the light is perfect!

You're KILLING me with the Stevie Nicks. For real. We should start a band..so maybe then I could borrow that awesome bag.

Now you've gotten the song stop in my head! I love the red + black color combination, the detailing of your dress and of course the floppy hat.

The thrifted bag fits in so well with current trends, great find!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I don't know how to pick one favourite part of my visit to San Francisco. Probably just wandering around admiring the architecture. I love how all of the buildings have so much character.
