With Future Pixels In Factories Away

Hi guys! Just letting you know ahead of time that this post contains a lot of photos, ha. I attended an event called Unique LA with my mother for Mother's Day aside from the other gifts I had given her! Unique LA features vendors that produce all their pieces by hand, or are vintage. It's like Etsy, but in real life + free food and drinks and lots of good music. I had a blast even though I arrived ridiculously late. The owner of the boutique that stocks my brand Miracle Eye, also has her own brand called Golightly Designs! The owner, Megan, makes jewelry like bracelets and necklaces out of guitar strings -- How rad is that? She's recycling old un-wanted strings and making ART! I've included a few photos of her booth at Unique LA at the bottom! Her display is so freakin' creative.. I would have never thought of using vinyls the way she did. My mom and I took some unbelievably corny photos at Unique LA, in the end there were only two that I think were decent, which I've also included towards the end. In unrelated news, there was a young lady who was wearing this same skirt I was wearing which I had purchased at H&M a few months ago and I felt so embarrassed.. To allow to you grasp just a little of what it felt like -- It was like I showed up to prom with a beautiful dress that ANOTHER girl had as well -- Awful. This is why I almost never purchase retail! I usually wear Miracle Eye or thrifted pieces OR one of a kind handmade pieces, ya know? Nevertheless, the way we styled the skirt was very distinctive so I didn't feel that embarrassed, but still........ *cries and wipes boogers off with hoodie sleeve*

i want that beanieeee.

also, i don't get why it seems like there are always so many more things to do in california or maybe just places other than orlando, florida. i have a fascination with california to be honest with you. i've always wanted to move there. and i'm considering it after i graduate college. how do you like it?

aaah, I know what you mean!! I'd feel kind of weird, awkward if I saw someone wearing the same piece I was wearing. It sucks, first world problems.

Yuka said...

Nanie La Naine said...

I like your shoes they are beautiful! And you have a great style

chloe said...

ha, i love the photo of you and mum! i can sympathise about seeing another person wearing the same thing as you: we get that a lot around here, we don't have many other options apart from high street. our vintage shops are very few and ridiculously overpriced. sigh..

It is all about networking.
