after tonight there's no returning home.







leyendecker top, sky tank dress, golfpfeil backpack, tabbisocks thigh highs, jeffrey campbell oxford wedges, vintage bangle, random gold bracelet, bcbg ring.

Took these before a fun Friday night spent watching the sunset, running around barefoot and climbing a hill, nearly running out of gas on a not very safe street, and playing glow-in-the-dark minigolf. I will never, ever wear these socks to this location again, all of the burrs from the dead weeds stuck to them and I got about 20 small thorns impaled in my fingers when I pulled them off.
Anyhoo, I've been wanting a black dress with cutout sleeves for ages but never found the perfect one, so I decided to improvise, and the gold bracelet is a new favorite piece...well, actually, it's old. The chain was given to me when I was a baby, the camel charm is from my uncle when he visited the Sahara Desert several years ago, and I'm not sure where the little Fendi charm came from, I found it in a dusty box of random old trinkets.
Hope everyone had a good weekend!
