Dream Catcher

a
On Saturday Jen, Isla and I embarked on an epic thrifting adventure far from the confines of the city. We crossed the Golden Gate Bridge and drove for hours until we reached what we like to call "The Mother Ship". It was a beautiful drive and an equally beautiful destination, especially if you love thrift stores as much as we do. After searching through racks and bins to find our treasures, we went on another type of hunt- the hunt for a Subway sandwich shop. Nothing has ever tasted better! 

At one of our many stops of the day, there was a lovely little moss covered wall. I just had to stop and snap some photos before getting on our way. I'm so lucky to have such darling friends to join me on day trips such as these. This dream catcher necklace is one of my newest pieces from Dear Mina. I had been wanting one since I saw it on her site. I finally got my hands on my very own! I love the way it pops against the dark green velvet of the dress. Velvet is fast becoming a staple fabric in my fall wardrobe. It's cozy, luxurious and I just can't get enough. What are some of your favorite fall fabrics?

Velvet is one of the most perfect fabrics for autumn, so cosy and looks great too! Especially when you pair it with that gorgeous necklace.

That necklace is amazing! Reminds me of a dreamcatcher necklace that I got from the "Native American Village" at the fair like ten years ago, and then promptly lost!

Rebecca :

I have to say that forest green is definitely my favourite shade for both velvet and lace, so love your dress. Great vintage boots too and I like the idea of a dream catcher necklace. I like wool/canvas and tencel the best.

Sharmaine Ruth :

pure picture perfection and how adorable is the dream catcher necklace?

The Thriftaholic (Leilani) :

First of all, I want to steal those boots of your feet, I've been looking for a similar pair to wear this fall. Also as a kid I had a fascination with dream catchers so of course adore your necklace. Your autumn look has been channeling a '90s vibe with the velvet and lace, I've been reaching for similar pieces too.

Post some of your treasures from the trip! Sounds like an amazing day. :)

MOUSEVOX VINTAGE :

my goodness, those boots are amazing! everything about this is just as lovely as can be. i'm definitely drawn to velvet in the autumn/winter months, as well as heavier silks.

isle told me of "the mothership" and i still can't quite wrap my head around the idea of this place. i'm going to have to check it out for myself one of these days!

Jul :

What an amazing look! I like everything from head to toe :) and I agree with you, velvet is a great fabric, even if I adore wool :)but it's more winter appropriate!
